Pour is dark hazed copper with a white head. Nose is huge oak and vanilla, moderate acetic acid, high acidity, faint peach, a hint of sun tan lotion. Taste has a huge amount of oak, just too much and never thought I would say that about oak. Acidity is very high, light acetic acid, notes of peaches, not well pulled together. Body is fairly big, moderate carb, fairly dry finish.

Some off fermentation flavors. Taste otherwise is mildly sweet peaches and enjoyable but pretty dull, not sour or complex.

Mild acetone. Dessert wine treatment comes out strongly. Peaches pretty muted

Bottle: Very good but the Zinfandel Barrel over powers the peach and dominates the taste.

Had a couple full pours of this on draft at their 1 year anniversary celebration. What a great day. I don't know if the previous reviewers had a few bad bottles or what but I was impressed with this offering. The color was a cloudy peachy/orange hue. The smell was slightly fruity and funky with some barnyard in there. The taste was light on peaches, not very sweet at all, funky and tart. Delicious. Was the best beer I had there all day and I had a lot. OEC is killing it
