look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A - Pours a gold/amber body with a fizzy eggshell head.

S - Definitely has that Beret base with peaches and vanilla.

T - Tart, peaches and vanilla. Peaches dominate with a backdrop of vanilla.

F - Medium bodied and medium carbonation. Dry finish.

O - A great variant of the base beer. Really enjoyable as the peaches nor vanilla overpower the base.

Pours a hazy pale orange with a nice cap of whitish foam. Decent retention and carbonation feel. Bit turbid at bottom of bottle.

Aroma is rather light overall. Moderate acidity at best with some peach/lemon and a touch of spice. No notable contribution from oak or berry. Taste follows with light tartness and some wit spices. Bit of wheat on the finish and a firm carbonation yield a full mouthfeel but there isn't a whole lot of character to support on the way down. Finish is pleasant though brief, ABV is not really noted on the palate. OK.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Slightly cloudy light-amber color, with a hint of rose color. Fairly small white head that quickly faded.

Smell: Peaches, vanilla, and mild barnyard funk.

Taste: The peaches and vanilla take center stage with some moderate raspberry notes following. There is a touch of funk and some mild grassy/hay notes. The beer finishes with the vanilla, peaches and tart raspberry notes.

Mouth-feel: On the light side of medium-bodied with a moderate level of carbonation.

Overall: The vanilla and peach are nice additions but dominate the raspberries of the base Beret. Not that this is a problem as the beer is very tasty but it almost seems as it should get a new name. Regardless this is a tasty and easy drinking wild ale.

750ml bottle poured into a tulip
2017 Vintage

A- pours a crystal clear golden color with a one-finger foamy white head that has short retention and leaves just a ring around the edge

S- fruity on the nose with notes of ripe peach & raspberries. Undertones of vanilla, wet oak, cracked pepper, coriander & toasted wheat

T- Fruity notes follow the nose with equal amounts of peach and raspberry, quickly followed by a vanilla sweetness that enhances the sweetness of the fruit. Mid-palate brings out some oaky notes, along with some spices of black pepper and perhaps coriander. The finish gives some light toasted wheat and more peach. Very subtle tartness on the linger, closes it all out

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that continues into the finish, high drinkability

O- unlike any witbier I've had, super fruity wit just a hit of tartness on the end to balance it out, an outstanding warm weather beer

750 ml bottle poured into a tulip

A: Pours a hazy orange color with a bright white creamy head, lots of tiny bubbles streaming up the side.

A: Lots of sour, tart, funky notes, raspberries are popping on the aroma, spice, coriander, Belgian yeast, band-aid-like aroma as well, vanilla, oak, peaches, a saison like must and barnyard funk notes, no alcohol on the nose, smells very promising.

T: The front is very soft with a touch of raspberry tartness, vanilla, oak, spice, and coriander, peaches hit really hard at the end with tart and sour notes, finish has lingering notes of berries, peaches, and oak, it's very drinkable, very tasty.

M: Light/medium bodied with a lot of carbonation, very dry finish.

O: Very impressed with Beret with Peaches and Vanilla, there's tons of flavor and aroma, the peaches at the end add a nice touch of sour and tartness, it's balanced, complex, and very drinkable, I can't even tell that it's 9% ABV.

Copper orange pour with a small head hat vanishes immediately.

Smells of peach, raspberries, cinnamon and sour. Vanilla slightly

Taste is bright. Clean peach cinnamon with a subtle vanilla berry flavor. Reminds me of fresh apple cider.

This is excellent.

A: Poured into a Duvel tulip to a light gold with a slight red hue which is topped by a finger of dense and rocky white head which fades quickly to a collar around the edge of the glass with minimal lacing.
S: Smells of huge vanilla notes along with some tart peaches and a touch of lactic sourness.
T: Taste is lightly tart with a huge vanilla note followed by some juicy peach flavors. Vanilla is surprisingly prominent but it isn't a bad thing. Slight creamy wheat note as well. On the swallow there's a little dry oak followed by more vanilla, rasperries peaches, light sourness, and some more creamy wheat.
M: This beer is around a medium in body with a slightly slick feel on the palate. Carbonation is effervescent and just slightly prickly while the beer has a drying finish.
O: Overall I really enjoyed this one. It's very adjunct forward though so if you want things to be a little more subtle this one may not be the beer for you. Due to the high amount of vanilla on this one it does kind of lose some points on complexity but it's still a pleasure to drink. Well worth a try if you're into fruited wits.

750mL acquired through The Bruery's Society. Bottled 2/7/17. Served in a Bruery snifter.

Pours a pale, nearly opaque golden amber with almost three full fingers of foamy white head. A few surface wisps of retention linger, as well as a narrow band. Only a couple meager slashes of lace decorate the empty glass.

Smells of soured pale malt, some barrel funk, light stone fruit, a vague earthy note and woodsy vanilla.

Tastes bracingly sour initially with plenty of peach followed by funky wet oak, stale wheat, vaguely herbal spice, wine-like vinous and some traces of vanilla cream.

Semi-chalky, medium full feel with subdued carbonation. Sour peach sorbet with a funky wood infusion in the finish.

Ever experimenting, The Bruery put a twist on Beret. That peach cream is an interesting variation but I prefer the straight raspberry-based original. Still overall enjoyable.

This beer really impressed me when I had it at the Bruery Anniversary party. Pours a hazy yellow and peach colored beer. 1/2" white head on the top of it. Aroma kicked in those milkshake like feels, plenty of vanilla and peach to this one, along with enough wheat and possible flaked oats to give it a grainy presence beyond mere barley.

Taste was amazing how nice and soft the mouth feel helped along the just in the right proportion amount of peach and vanilla. The vanilla is prominent in taste and mouth feel, I like the use of wheat and vanilla together, you don't get that too much. The sour factor is right in the good range, prolly a 6 out of 10 on the scale. Its not really tart, the heavy vanilla presence resolves that being an issue. This is a very well made, good tasting beer that is flying under the radar. As usual, really good for drinking.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 2/6/2017. Pours hazy medium orange/amber color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big vanilla, lightly tart raspberry, cranberry, cherry, lemon, lime, peach, pear, green apple, orange peel, white wine, coriander, peppercorn, wheat, cracker, and bread; with lighter notes of hay, straw, leathery/musty funk, white vinegar, and yeast/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, fruit/spices, oak, and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of huge vanilla, lightly tart raspberry, cranberry, cherry, lemon, lime, peach, pear, green apple, orange peel, white wine, coriander, peppercorn, wheat, cracker, and bread; with lighter notes of hay, straw, leathery/musty funk, white vinegar, and yeast/oak earthiness. Light fruity/lactic tartness and yeast/tannic oak spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of vanilla, tart raspberry, cranberry, cherry, lemon, lime, peach, pear, green apple, orange peel, white wine, coriander, peppercorn, oak, wheat, cracker, bread, light funk/vinegar, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, fruit/spices, oak, and moderate bready malt flavors; with an awesome malt/tartness balance, and zero puckering flavors after the finish. Light dryness from fruity/lactic tartness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/grainy, fairly acidic, and lightly tannic balanced mouthfeel that is awesome. Minimal warming alcohol for 8.9%. Overall this is a fantastic fruit/spiced wild ale! all around outstanding complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, fruit/spices, oak, and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the mellow acidity. Refreshingly tart. Far less puckering, lactic, and drying than the base beer; providing a great showcase of all of the fruits/spices. Great witbier style flavors with balanced Brett complexity. A highly enjoyable offering.
