Bottle at the Funky 8, Brooklyn, NYC. Vintage 2004. Great tang in here. The fruits seem to have faded mildly but this is still a phenomenal beer. Loads of great tang. Super balance, very well rounded and drinkable. A real treat.

750 ml corked and caged bottle. Batch 1. Pours a slightly hazy copper with just a thin white head of foam. The aroma is musty, tart, peaches. The fruit profile is phenomenal on this. Taste is more of that peach sourness. Lighter body.

Taster pour at the brewery, their last case, hazy gold, minimal head, subtle aroma, powerful sour peach flavor... What a blast!

Another generous share from Diego by way of the Tower of Power, I really loved this beer and it had an incredible amount of peach flavor remaining for a bottle of its vintage. I wish that DFH would rebrew this beer, it’s better than probably every 750 they have released since.

Huge tip of the cap to maltzilla for sharing this bottle at the TOPSH. ’04 vintage. Cloudy dark yellow pour with no head. Peach nose. Tart and tangy, a little watery, with all kinds of peach and sour stone fruit flavors. What a treat to get to try this 7 year old DH gem.......

Thanks Maltzilla for this gem. This is now my second favorite DFH after D’Extra. For a 6-7 year old bottle, this was nothing short of amazing. Peaches in a sour beer equals greatness and they need to brew this beer again.

Big thanks to Maltzilla for showing this rarity. 04’ bottle. This has definitely still held up over time. The aroma still had a good amount of peaches in there along with some sour funk. The flavor had that soft peachy flavor with a toned down sour funk. Very good though.

In short: A very barnyard (borderline funky) sour peach beer. Surprisingly good.
How: From a 750ml bottle. Consumed when 6.5 years old, shared by a friend.
The look: Cloudy peach color body with almost no head
In long: Strong nose of peaches and barnyard. Taste is very countryside barnyard, almost funky. Plenty of peaches, lactic acid, medium-strong sourness. So I am told that this beer was crap when it came out and then a few years later it kicked-in. I can’t comment on that because I can’t remember having it fresh but I can say that this beer as it is today is one of the best American fruit-lambic I’ve ever had, better than any Upland and others. I definitely want to score some of these old bottles. I never had this beer fresh but I hear that it was pretty bad when fresh and it took years to develop. With this beer the secret was to be as patient as anybody who is waiting for me to grow up and be a man.

This poured a light semi cloudy yellow color with a small white head. Aroma is of very sour peaches, medium funk and light nail polish. Flavor was Very inrtreresting, a nice blend between funk and tartness, way better than the peche and ahead of its time. Great stuff.
