brokensail (10808) - 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 (1372) - 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.

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.

Leighton (10794) - 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.

(750ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye, rating #3400!) cloudy golden pour with sticky lacing and small white bubbles. Nose of wet wood, tangerine, peach, gueuze like and tart with light metallic touches and some caramel. Taste is tart, peach, wet wood, funky and a bit of strawberry. Nice beer!

Hair6a11 (1351) - Illinois, USA - JUL 23, 2011
On tap; pour is golden with a frothy, fine bubbled white head. The nose is lemon grass, peaches, and wheat. The flavor profile is quite nice here; funky, lightly sweet, peach skins, wheat, and tart; its lightly acetic but drinkable as well. I really felt like this one worked. Nice job dark horse

Dark horse peach wants lambeak. 750ml bottle from a recent trade... Pours a medium orangey copper brown and topped with a thin soapy white head...aroma of sharp apricoty but not as distinct in flavor. Mildy like sour, nicely developed. With a light lacto sourness thrown in there for good measure. flavors follow suit nicely and consistently as a matter of fact. sour pale fruit, peach is tough to pick out distinctively so more of a mingling of various fruit profiles. nice easy going sourness while not adding too much in the way of an acidic nature. good bodied with adequate carbonation. a pleasant surprise.

TheAlum (5687) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2011
750 ml shared at Kanís. Thanks! Pours a rich darker golden hue, good haze, a frothy bigger offwhite head laces small. Aromas are sour peaches, grainy bread, wet oak and vanilla with some lactic acid, touches of tart fruit and citrus. Initial is lighter bodied, up front is nice big apricot and peach, with bready malts, some lactic acid, lemons, grass, wet oak and vanilla. Real moderate sour, rich peach and apricot, wet oak, lactic, touches of sourness grow on the palate, really nice moderate sour and deep peach finish. Sour but not overbearing, highly drinkable. Itís not Mae, but itís pretty damn good. A surprise with rich peach, wet oak, yogurt and lactic acid. Mmmmm.
