Poured a cloudy yellow orange color with aromas of fuzzy peaches, wine, light champagne and some zippiness. Flavors are champagne like with peaches added, light sourness in the afyertaste, lots of carbonation and enjoyable.

Floral, funky, and mildly tart with a slight sweet tart feel. Has a slightly earthy mouthfeel that is low in acidity which makes for an easy drinker.

Bottle shared in London to mark Bruce’s departure - thanks to Kenny for sharing this one. Pours unclear yellow-gold with a frothy white head. Nice aroma, lightly funky, with notes of lemon and peach. Light sweet flavor with notes of lemon rind, hay, pale bread, faint sweat, peach and minerals. Light in body with average carbonation. Clean finish with pleasant lemony tartness, some straw. Solid.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle via and shared with oakbluff. Gold in colour with medium carbonation and a bit of haze. Aromas are of white wine barrel, grassy funk, herbs, and faint orchard fruit. Less funky in the mouth, but the old oak and white wine notes are still there. Pilsner malt and mild orchard fruit stick around too. I think the barrel influence really weighs this beer down on the palate. More acidity or carbonation would have helped. Still decent, but was expecting much more.

Sampled from bottle @ Leuven Innovation Beer Festival. Hazy pale yellow golden color, small white head. Smell and taste are very sour, going to harsh, with a touch of fermenting fruits and unripe fruits. Average to decent body and carbonation. Too sour for me.

Bottle shared by my brother. Did this side by side with Fou. Pours a slightly cloudy gold with a small white head. Aromas of soured apricot jam, but kind of muted overall on the aroma. Taste is tart. Flavors of oak, stone fruit, some funk. Pretty tart. Good, not mind blowing.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Yellow golden color with a big foamy white head that quickly shrank to almost nothing. Oaky nose with Brett notes. I don’t get any peach in this beer. There is a tart fruit flavor here with some citrus and wine tannin. Oak tastes with a bit of Brett funk. Interesting sour, but I was hoping for more peach.

On tap @ Brouwer’s. Pours lightly hazy golden yellow with thick white head that fades into substantial lacing. Aroma is dry and fizzy up front, light citrus and sweet peach notes, with crisp dry tartness in the back. Taste is light sourness, clean wheaty malt, some dry oaky notes, and light tart citrus again. The peach is definitely present, but very much in the background. Saison yeast and flavor are here too, but so much going on you don’t really notice. Excellent beer.

Draft, clear yellow, some head fades, nice lace. Aroma is kombucha, green apples, fresh cut grass. Taste is lemony green apple, passion fruit, pale malt, kombucha. Palate is light, carbonation subdued and fine. Pretty nice!
