Golden pour with a white head. The aroma is full of peaches with some biscuit malt thrown in. The flavor is similar. I get some juicy, tart peaches and some biscuit malt. There is also a hint of oak. The tartness is fairly light but is present and adds something to the beer. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

- pours apricot yellow with no head. S - you can tell this is an ananke derivative. That chemical tone. Honey, canned peaches, pineapple juice, lemon juice and acetic acid. Notes of candied sugar. M - sweet as dry. Low carb. Nice amount of sour. T - follows the nose with lots of peach and canned pineapple. Honey and that freetail Sour goodness. O - another nice freetail sour.

TheAlum (5909) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 1, 2014
Bottle shared at Dunt’s Tasting (Chicago, IL). Pours a nice hazy golden hue, gentle bubbly carbonation, frothy whitish head dies to a decent ring, laces ok. Aromas are gentle peach, crisp cereal and bready malts. A touch of straw, gentle yeastiness and oak. Mellow peach and lactic acidity. Nose comes on a bit harder as it settles in. Initial is a bit tart, fruity, the wit base certainly shows some life. A bit of coriander, citrus and bready malt. Touches of lactic acidity meet sweet and tart peaches, peach juice, oak and gentle bready malt. Flavors and sour element comes together better into the backend. A bit more lactic and oak presence, the base comes more in line. A bit more bitey sourness and peach as we really get there, distinct bready and cereal malts. Nice at times, a firm sourness but also a lot of base and Wit feel at others. A nice beer, better than that Salado we opened a few months back but still a bit young. Solid.

Clear, slight yellow appearance. No head. Raw peach and apricot and slightly sweet taste is awesome. Lovely tartness. Sweet and lots of grainy grassiness. Really nice

Light peach. Aroma - smells awful; funky and unplaceable aroma. Taste - great! Beautiful mild fruit big sour yet very smooth. Overall, nice tasting sour.

Batch 2, so this is relatively fresh. Hazy gold-straw, somewhat transparent with a good amount of silky white lace.

Aroma is off: super lactic, soured yeast, roast beef (srsly). Improves as it warms, but seriously some prime rib in there when chilled.

Canned peach juice. Mild tartness, lacks the depth and intensity of Woodicus. Honestly totally unlike the base, which I strongly prefer. B1 may have been better, but this isn't anything to write home about right now. No homerism here.

I do expect this to change significantly with time, though, and hopefully for the better.

Very sour but surprisingly very easy to drink. The peaches give it a tart taste. I liked this one a lot. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Freetail Peche'cus A- on tap. Bright hazy yellow with a creamy looking 1/2 finger white head. Really looks like a Lemon Meringue pie. S- tart aromas, lemon, sour grape, some soft peach. A little bit of funk. Smells like Ananke. Awesome smelling wild ale. T- this stuff is amazing. Sour peaches right off the bat, followed by that wild ale funk. Notes of lemon, sour green grape, straw, and champagne tartness. M- nice medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Highly drinkable. I can drink this all day long. O- this beer is truly excellent. Reminds me of Ananke with additions of sour peaches. This needs to be bottled. Very refreshing and looks beautiful vibrant and bright. -
