Sampled from tap at ’Beertemple’ during Carnivale Brettanomyces 2016 as ’Surette Reserva Peach’ at 6.2% abv, courtesy of Douberd, thanks Christos! Slightly hazy, golden amber with a white head. Very fruity, sourish aroma of lots of peach, apricot and hints of citrus. Quite sour, very fruity taste of lots of peach, apricot and some citrus, followed by a medium long, very tart finish. Thin to medium body, very astringent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice, very simple again.

Bottle at the Source during 5th anniversary. Clear deep orange. Nose is nice white wine like barrel character, light vanilla, indistinct stone fruit. Flavors of light yogurt, light vanilla and oak, don’t get any distinct peachiness, but definitely a fruit element. Not a real whiskey character, but the barrel definitely lends some complexity. Really tasty and in some ways reminiscent of RB Home, Sour Home but a drier less hedonistic beer.

Bottle thanks to Seth/Diego/Not Sure at Diego’s Stone Fruit Bashaganoza. The whiskey barrels added surprisingly little to the base beer, which was rather astonishing as I expected a heavy dose of peachiness and some booze buzz based on my experience with apple brandy barreled beers. Basically just the same lightly citrusy orange saison with a hint of tart zing. Quite solid, but not spectacular as I had hoped.

Bottle from a trade. Light bronze pour with tiny lacings on top. Nose has lots of funk upfront, citrus and leather. Tasty is quite tart, lemon zest, some vanilla, leather and a touch of peach. Delicious stuff!

(375ml bottle) clear gold, soapy white bubbles. Nose of peach, barrel, sour, tart fruit, apricot, mossy cellar floor and a touch of whiskey. Taste of tart peach, light barrel, whiskey, light spirits, excellent carbonation and palate linger.

Bottle at home with the wife. Pour is clear golden orange with a small head that quickly dissipated. Tangy, green apple, light spice, lemony, slightly funky and Peary aroma. Taste is caramel apple, light cinnamon, lemons, some oak, urine, and pears with a semi-sour sweet finish. Light body with crisp carbonation. Tasty, but somewhat one-dimensional.

Bottle thanks to Russell. Pours a cloudy orange with small frothy white head. The aroma is peach, oak, funk. Thin mouthfeel with light peach, funk, oak, and light sourness. Good

375 ml bottle. Aroma has a moderate barrel character with noticeable whiskey and fruit. Moderately strong overripe stone fruit character with hints of red apple and citrus. Moderate spicy phenolic notes of grains of paradise and pink peppercorn. Light malt notes of lightly toasted bread hiding in the background. Pours a cloudy, orange-brown with a somewhat small, fairly thin, white head that displays average retention as it recedes to the edges where it lingers. Flavor has a light acidity with quite a bit of fruitiness. Lots of overripe stone fruit, apples and pears with hints of citrus and pineapple. Light oak and whiskey notes, not as prevalent as in the aroma. Faint, lightly toasted bread and crackers. Medium notes of grains of paradise and lighter notes of pink and white peppercorns. Medium low bitterness with a touch of alcohol in the finish. Overripe pears, stone fruit and citrus linger in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a pretty nice beer. The barrel adds some nice fruit character with a lot of overripe stone fruit along with some light oak and whiskey notes; the stone fruit really compliments the farmhouse yeast notes. Medium light phenolics and bitterness balances out the fruit notes. Light acidity and alcohol adds complexity.

375ml bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy copper with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of sourness, whiskey and oak, the pale and light malts, some fruits, and some light floral notes. Flavor the same with nice blend of Surette and the oak and whiskey. Average texture. A really cool beer.
