3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is one Iíve been looking forward to since I first heard of it. For lack of a better word, itís peach colored with a decent white head that disappears rather quick. Sourdough aroma with lots of lemon peel. For me, the taste is dominated but sour bread and lemon notes with the peach just a whisper in the aftertaste. As expected, this lower alcohol offering is all about being subtle and I think it works really well. The lively but not overzealous carbonation works perfectly to aid in the thirst quenching quality that this brew has in spades. Very good work.

Smoking. I was really suprised by this guy. Classic pour, white head fades to a cordon ring around the glass (a rocks glass for me) Light, hazy, yellow color with the slight streams of bubbles in the right places. Soury nose with a fragrant fresh cut peach turning more to the bitter skin. Nice vinous palate entry and a dry white peach fruit carries nicely on the weight of the wheat malt. Tart, acidic, refreshing finish. Damn tasty. Everything is nice balance, a fruit beer to trust.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale champagne color with lotsa bubbles and a quickly fading white head. Aroma is sour and somewhat crackery, but altogether too subtle. Wooh! Taste is same, and none too subtle! Very sour, bordering on lemony, with peach and yeasty salty biscuitness. Lively and interesting, but it will be a while before I want another. $3/12oz

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2009 Sampled twice: on tap @ the Grey Lodge, then in 12oz bottles. Hazy golden yellow, with a thick white head. Lactic nose, aroma of citrus and apricot. Nice tart, peach flavor along with wheat and yeast; begins sweet then gives way to a fairly long, tart finish. Effervescent and refreshing.

Tap. The bartender warns, "this ones really sour". OK, should I taste it first or just take the plunge. I dove. Pours a off-yellow with a light haze and a maybe 1/4" head. Nose is citric but no discernable peaches. Flavor I would describe as pleasently tart. Sour has a negative connotation. Refreshingly tart. A peach essence arrives about three quarters of the way through a sip, returning to the tart finish. I get more Sauvignon Blanc than the described comparable wine. I really like this one, very quenching and I enjoyed the slightly puckering tartness that this brew brings. Could definately bump up the peach experience so that it is more formidable.

Pours an unfiltered yellow with a fizzy white head. Mildly fruity aroma of oranges and peaches. Flavor...wow what a bite this beer has. Sour and tart at first, and extremely dry in the finish. Peachy and tangy....thatís about all i can get from the flavor. This is an interesting beer for me as itís the only one like it that iíve had.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a tawny, pale yellow color w/ a very subdued semi creamy froth that only rises a tad to recede back from whince it came. Minimal residual lacing. Not much on the nose, just a touch of soured peach malt and a slight biscuiting. Light to medium nectar w/ ample residual effers creating a pillowy soft and creamy texture. This brew is as dry as a bone. Not too sour though either. Theres a defined peach nectar character w/ lemony citrus rind and biscuits. The finish is short, tart and bone dry. Itís not offensive, nor is it as severe as Cuvee Rene but it is an aquired taste. This is a food beer. The commercial description is way off on the Wine comparable. Itís more like a Brut Champagne. Nothing about says Pinot Grigio.
