My Bottom Line:
Strawberry allusions blend in nicely with the lambic-like funk, playing harmoniously with lactic acidity.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam surrounds the misty golden honey.
-The soft effervescence, dryness and acidity make for high drinkability.
-The fruit character is warm and juicy (not necessarily full on peaches; I got more strawberry and kiwi than peaches actually).
-This is not just another funky beer. It actually has a unique profile that is showcased in a refined manner. Very, very good brew.

fiulijn (18446) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 6, 2016
Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver, 10th Anniversary party
Cloudy, golden, and flat. Sour, definitively it has Lambic notes, more lemon, but also light cheese/yeast notes; some aroma of peach and yeast.
Nice, but I expected more.

CanIHave4Beers (3946) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - DEC 17, 2015
Mydude is not in my dining room, but he is truly killin’ it.
Pours a hazy yellow with a small head and nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma is reasonably earthy at the start but this gives way to bright fruit i.e. lemon and apricot especially. The funkiness is mild, a touch horse blanket like and a little leathery.

The flavor is bright and fruity with lots of apricot. The beer is medium dry and has a very pleasant level of sourness. The beer has some faint herbal notes and a little bit of bitterness. The acidity is brilliant and the woodiness seems like white oak, although who knows. Just lots of tartness & apricot.

just fantastic

Golden colour, hazy white head. Aroma of cheese, wild yeast, hint peach and rotten yoghurt, somewhat reminding of a De Troch lambic. sour flavour, quite fruity, peach, lactic acid. finish peach and rotten yoghurt. Not bad, but not great. Expected more.

Waxed bottle, poured and split at a tasting. Huge thanks to Prufrockstar for sharing this and feeding my latest craze of peach sours. And for teaching me how to pronounce the name of this beer. Love the description on here by the way. It explains as much about this beer as I probably can. Pours a cloudy yellow, orange (peach) color with no head. Reading this bottle, I’m truly confused, but I know the beer is good, so that’s all that matters. Frsh peach aroma. Candy peach flavor with a belgian yeast hinted finish. SO damn good. FAHNTAHZEEA
