3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle... Cloudy straw-colored pour with a small, brief, white head. The nose is bready with peach fruitiness and a trivial level of sweaty sock-like funkiness. Medium to full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and lively carbonation. The flavor features an enjoyable balance of juicy-sweet peaches, sharp lactic acidity and bread-like yeastiness. Tart, bready, fruity finale. I didn’t pick up the brandy barrel component here. Bottle courtesy of richiesd!

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Golden peach color and nice thin white head. Smell of dry white wine and peaches. Flavor of tart peaches and a dry cognac finish. Peaches do not kill it, they are present which adds to overall experience and dimension with the oak brandy and wine characters. Excellent.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375ml bottle. Clear golden shade. Finger of white head. Aroma is mostly the effects of the barrel, with woodiness coming to the fore. Taste only carries a hint of peach, but the tart, puckering acidity is really nice. Don’t think the idea totally came together but a very nice sour anyway.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
375 ml bottle shared with Tmoney99 and the Fifty West guys. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have tart peaches, some acidity, the brandy is fairly mild but does contribute some sweetness, some funk, some musty character, light wood, I like the beer but didn’t think that it was overly complex.
