jtclockwork (7902) - , New Jersey, USA - AUG 22, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2012 Bottle thanks to Matt. Pours peach apricot with white head. Nose/taste of fresh peaches, light lacto sourness, splintered oak and mild funk. Mellow lambic. Medium body. I really liked this one.

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - FEB 9, 2012
750ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Hazy deep orange color with a slight head. Aroma is tart with wood and peach. Taste is earthy and sour with a nice tartness. Peach is definitely the main attraction here.

BMan1113VR (7820) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 1, 2012
Bottle thanks to GRG1313. Slightly disappointed with this one. Pours with a hazed golden body with chunks of fruit in it. White head. Aromas are sweet, vinous, vinegar, earthy and musty. Flavors are acidic, peach, weed, and light funk. Dry, strange texture with the fruit particles. Chunky.

Brigadier (2875) - Clevelandish, Ohio, USA - JAN 10, 2012
750 ml bottle
Thanks to a generous Michigan trader for sending me a fabulous gem. I never knew that Dark Horse could crank out such a intense experience. Not your timid sugary "lambic" this beer has an aggressiveness that is obvious from the start.

Aroma / Appearance - Peach semi-transparent liquid bubbles like an off color champagne. A soft white head is soft and delicate as if eaten away by the acidity underneath. Canned peaches mixed with a healthy dose of vinegar is tart, acidic, and bright. If your sinuses are blocked a few sniffs of this will clear them in seconds.

Flavor / Palate - Peach, Jolly Rancher hard candy, and cooking vinegar start out mildly. Slowly the intensity builds. By the end of the first glass the bite is so harsh that it straddles the sour fence perfectly. Just thinking about it makes me wish I could drink some more.

brokensail (10607) - Orange County, California, USA - DEC 8, 2011
Pours a cloudy golden orange color with a tall white head. Intense aromas of fruit to this one. Lots of peach which gives a slight sweetness, but also enhances the tartness. Lemon/lactic tartness as well as some mild straw and grass notes. The flavor is similarly heavy on the peach. Quite vibrant fruit flavor lending a little bit of balance to the intense sourness. Lemon and lemon zest as well as grass, oak, and some musty notes. Medium in body and carbonation.

cpetrone84 (1274) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2011
Pours a deep golden amber with small bubbles on a tight white head. The nose is somewhat light, minerally up front, light salt, oak, hints of leathery brett and some bright peach aromas behind. The brett is stronger in the flavor, very leathery, green vegetables, dirty oak, sweet fuzzy peach. Light acidity on a semi dry finish. A bit heavy and syrupy, rotten vegetable notes linger. A few off flavors and a touch empty, not horrible though.

markwise (4424) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 13, 2011
Thanks to GatorGuy92 for sharing this one. Pours a hazy peach color with a white head that disappears. Nose is peach, sweet fruit, some mild vinegar, and a hint of wood. Flavor is similar with lingering peachy fruitiness. Light to medium in body and relatively sweet for a lambic.

Hazy dark orange pour, white head. Aroma of sweet tarts, peaches, dried apricots, light oaky notes. Flavor is very fruity, not too sweet, light vinegar, oak. Good!

Leighton (10483) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2011
Bottle at post-ACBF 2011 tasting. Pours hazy, bright gold with a fine head. Sour grape and peach nose, some funk. Sweet flavor with plenty of sour notes. Some syrup, maple and wood. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet, wild sour finish, lightly cloying, but still very nice.
