ClarkVV (4615) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 27, 2015
2015 bottle (new labels, not like the label pictured here) drunk 10/23/15 and on Cask at NERAX, Summer 2013.
Still haven’t got around to entering my ratings from NERAX 2.5 years ago...sigh. So it’s good that I finally had this one (bottle at Deep Ellum, $17, bottle at liquor store down the street, $25. Makes you wonder....). Light haziness to the blonde liquid, leaving the sediment in the bottle. Big white head but it collapses pretty quickly to a covering, though is retained well there.
Loved in on cask, loved it in the bottle. Very juicy, peachy nose is nonetheless well-fermented/macerated and the peach combines well with the yeast/bacteria acids which are in turned laced with a light honey-vanilla character. Some floral notes, very low on the wood and mostly just a bright fruited sour that leans a lot more to the fruited American weisse end of the spectrum than the heavily barreled, intensely sour wild ale end. No alcohol, no flaws.
In the mouth it’s tightly carbonated, juicy, acidic but yet balanced with maltiness. Peach flavor is authentic, nicely integrated and oak barrel character shows restraint of tannin and even a touch of wine-like character (this is not wine barrel aged, to my knowledge, to clarify). Love the alcohol here and indeed the resulting high drinkability. Sure, it’ dosent have the most profound of complexities, nor are you going to confuse this for Fou Foune, but I think people are unfairly expecting a lot more out of this. A simple peach golden ale aged in oak, left at low gravity to be both bright, refreshing and drinkable. Love it.

Bottle thanks to Jason (I think?) for sharing. Aromas are peaches, yogurt, and oak. Tastes slightly funky which is nice here. Lots of peach yogurt, some lemon, strong oak. Mild sourness. Really good but I wish it was just a little more sour.

Bottle. Hazy dandelion gold with a fuzzy off-white head. Aroma has prominent peach followed by sharp vanilla and oak, lemon and soft wheaty funk. Big peach flavor, very much like biting into the fruit with sweet juice and a little peach-skin bitterness. Acidity is very mild, as is the funk. Watery medium-light body; mild CO2. Good peach flavor but lacking in the acidity and complexity of other Cisco sours.

Theydon_Bois (14316) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2015
Bottle split at Bruces pad - for the last time, big thanks to LKS, 27/03/15. Hazed orange golden with a moderate off white covering. Nose is lemon rind, tarte apricot, buttery notes - but not in a bad way, pissy tones. Taste comprises light funk, atraw, apricot yoghurt, citric zest, peach, tangerine, tarte fruit rinds. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a funky soured fruit wash. Decent approachable sour.

Swan Song at Bruce’s. Thanks to Leighton. Hazy gold beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is light, dry and crisp. Little sherbet precedes peach and lemon. Light floralness. Mild tangy sourness. Light crisp finish. Nicely joined up. Fresh and clean.

Leighton (15306) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2015
Bottle shared in London - picked up in MA. Pours clear yellow with a creamy white head. Nice lemony aroma, pleasantly pithy, apricot, peach. Light sweet flavor with very pleasant citric bite, mild jammy citrus, hints of pale bready sweetness. Light bodied with average, spritzy carbonation. Very clean finish with tart lemons, pale bread, light acidic bite. Exceedingly well balanced. Super refreshing.

Fritz123 (1473) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - MAR 9, 2015
Bottle from Atlanta trip. Opened with Brian at the house. Snifters. Pours an amber-orange with no real head. No lacing. Aroma is mostly peach, slight vinegar, sweet tart candy. The taste is very peach up front and transitions into sour peach in the back of the mouth. Active carbonation, moderate acidity. Thin body. Really well balanced sour. Very nice.

crossovert (10014) - Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2014
750ml corked and caged bottle. This one has a light peachiness and a sourness that is nonexistent until the finish where it gives a nice sharp puckering note. Pleasant beer but nothing mindblowing.
