look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours with slight head that dissipates quickly Nose has some brett. Dry, little carb. Lemon-lime and cheesy notes. Finish feels drying at first then strong citrusy wave after. Some oily sensation in the mouthfeel. I'm not getting much fruit in here aside form citrus.

750ml cork and cage bottle poured into a snifter

A- pours a pale orange-yellow with a one finger bubbly white head that has decent retention

S- tart and fruity up front with aromas of peach skin, woody oak, lemon peel, cantaloupe, a hint of dried hay and Brett funk

T- tart peach leads the way up front with undertones of ripe cantaloupe, apricot & lemon. Mid-palate gives some woody oak, as well as some yeast funk. The finish is bone dry and lingers of fruit and wood

M- medium-light body with low carbonation leads to a slightly foamy mouthfeel and a dry tannic finish

O- a showcase of peach that is light, funky and has a dryness that keeps you wanting more

This is pretty much pureed sour peach juice.It is very tasty, and has some of the nicer "geuze" tastes that casey offers, but is pretty one dimensional in my opinion. Great body though, really amazing. I do also get hints of things like burnt rubber etc that others get, though they dont dominate my perception of the beer in any way, and if i wasnt looking for them (and im no super taster) you would never perceive them

Very good, but certainly not 30 dollars good

750mL into a wine glass.

This beer followed Casey Leaner...a tough act to follow, but it holds its damn own. As a matter of fact, the aroma on this beats Leaner. It's much more peachy and fruity-heavy.

The flavor is rich with peach and has some citrusy qualities to it along with light funk.

Feel is standard light, clean but tart, easy-drinking Casey brew.

Very good and I'm surprised the ratings aren't higher.

750 mL bottle. Very hazy pale orange. Smell is peachy. No sugar in the nose. A little funky and oaky. Faint chemical aroma. Tastes of peach and oak. Then the burnt rubber and chemical flavor kicks in. Ugh. Medium body. Really disappointing flavor. Second Casey beer with that burnt rubber flavor.

casey continues to impress. i think my palate loves his kind of beer, more wild than sour in most instances, rustic and raw, but still highly refined. thats what i like to drink, and he is striking a chord lately. this one is tremendous. oaky and fruity both in equal parts. its easily identified as peaches, where some beers have that ambiguous orchard fruit thing, this is certainly peach. i smell and taste its ripeness, yellow flesh, fuzzy outside, tart skin, and even a hint of the nutty pit it seems, but that could be the special occasion warm fuzzies i always get when having one of these beers that makes me see things that arent there. a sensual hallucination of the palate if you will, brought on and amplified by the rare and the heady. lots of oak here too, some white wine notes, and more funk than sour. mature brett is swirling everywhere, in the nose and up front, but also dry and horsey in the finish. its a rather thick looking, almost milky sort of brew to look at, but it tastes divine. lots of fruit character and little residual sweetness, most excellent. moderate acidity too, but its mellow and tame, not aggressive or harsh in the slightest. few people are making beer this good right now. this was one of my favorite casey brews to date, well worth seeking out.

edit: somewhat less remarkable on draft, although still amazing from a fruit flavor standpoint. more murky, thick, and lacking the bright bubbles of the bottle, at least in my experience.

edit: were all of these suncrest peaches? i just had a suncrest peach bottle from 2015 and we had it next to the family preserves peach and the leaner, and this might have been the winner. sourer now a couple years later, still white winey, and with more peach retained than the others. enormously delicious stuff, cellars with the best of them and far better than the leaner did!

edit: just had a september 2015 bottle of the suncrest peach version again and its all acid now, definitely a limit to how long these can go in the cellar, and assuming this never got hot or anything, that was probably at least a year or two ago in terms of max age. interestingly the fruit profile is still in tact, amazing and juicy, fuzzy, ripe, summery, and delicious, and that saves this a little bit, but a single glass is hard to finish at this level of acidity, let alone the whole bottle, an impossible task i reckon. thankfully it still tastes alright, better than the apricot version from the same year by a significant margin, but i suspect anyone who paid all that money for this when it was released will be let down if they held it this long. the first few years it was rocking right along, but the sourness has taken over entirely and this is right on the edge of being a drain pour at this point. still dont think i have ever had a version of this that was done with any peach other than suncrest either. leaving my original scores as they are, its unfair to blame casey for this at this point...

From a 750 ml bottle (bottled September 17, 2015, Suncrest 3# on the label) to a tulip.

A-The beer a nearly clear and is a bright, sunshine filled yellowish color. It is pretty much still in the glass. A short white foam fades immediately and leaves no lacing.

S-The aroma is heavy on the peaches. You can sniff them as soon as the cork is pulled. There is also a light candied fruit smell, but a sniff of the glass reveals a mostly dry, moderately funky, moderately acidic brew. Oaky barnyard notes play really well with the peach flavors.

T-The taste is not quite as juicy and, uh, peachy as the smell. I taste a little more acidity, which reminds me of orange juice, and there are some vinous, oaky notes that blend pretty well with the funk. This beer is quite sour, but not as mouth puckering as some, e.g., Avery.

M-The body is moderate to light in heft with a nice, active, chunky carbonation. It pairs well with the flavors.

O-This is another good beer from Casey. I don't think it is a chart topper, but the smell is downright delicious and the flavors are nice too. Peach beers are difficult to pull off and this one is nicely complex, if not overly fruit-forward.

This one was interesting. Very low carbonation, but a strong peach presence in the nose. I didn't get as much funk as the Apricot, but it was still present. Taste was heavy peach, but not overly sweet with mild funk. I'm definitely going to hold on to these for a bit to let them develop a bit more. I have a feeling my rating will adjust after that.

Booming peach presence in this beer. The opposite of what I got from the Family Preserves Peach, even though they both have 3+ lbs of peach... Peach works really well with the typical Casey funk, but there's mild diacetyl at the back end. Needs a few weeks to clean up. Overall, still a great beer.
