Pours a cloudy yellow with a nose of peche blanket and horse barn blanket. Flavor is uber-sour peach. leathered cherry, and barn air. Oily mouthfeel. Wow. Just WOW.

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. -

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

2/24/12. On tap at the brewery during RBWG 2012... thanks! Hazy orange pour with a small ring of khaki head. Definite sour aroma - acidic, sour, and fruity - with nice vanilla touches. Very tart flavor, acidic and citrusy with complex fruitiness, a bit of vanilla and wood, slight funkiness, and lingering tartness and dryness. This is the best beer of the day so far!

(Draught) very cloudy gold pour. Nose of peach, lightly tart, real fruit, light barrel, funky, and smells incredible. Taste of tart peach, light funk, yogurt, light wood, and complex in general. Oily body and excellent carbonation. Freetail’s best beer to date, by a long shot.

Opaque yellow pour with watery head. Funky peaches and sour dominate. Tart acidic peaches, no bitter just sour. Light bodied with good carbonation. nice

Rosebud butternuts (2396) - Denton, Texas, USA - FEB 24, 2012
On draft at brewpubs. Poured yellow with a white head. Aroma was peach, sour, citrus, and awesome. Flavor was pretty much the same with a dry body and fizzy carbonation.

djd07 (2912) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2012
On tap at brewpub. Pours a cloudy yellow with no head. The aroma is strong peach and apple. Thin mouthfeel with a sour apple and peach flavor with tart finish. Easy to drink a very good sour ale from Freetail.

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
