On tap at the brewery. Peach Nightmare pours a nice orange color with a decent amount of head and lacing. The smell is outstanding - the fresh peaches really shine. There's also a mild funk in the nose. The taste is good too, starting sweet with the peaches, but then the tartness hits on the back-end. It is nicely balanced in a way that you can really focus on the flavors, as opposed to just tasting pure sour like is common with wild ales. The mouthfeel is a little heavy but overall the beer finishes very nicely and is quite sessionable. This beer is a showcase of 2 contrasting flavors - the sweet peaches and the tart base beer (Petit Sour). It is very well done and I hope to see more of the same.

This was the closest I’ve ever come to drinking a peach pie. Seriously.

It pours an amber-orange the color of, well, peaches. The aroma has a pleasing tart peach note to it which unfolds as it warms. Tastes great. Crisp, tart, fresh, like a peach pie baked at the height of the season. It’s a fun beer and fantastic to boot.
