4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Proof. Poured into a Goose Island wine-style glass. Slight haze to this beer. Color is like the skin of a lemon. Yellow/gold with a twinge of straw. Tons of bubbly white head that held about a minute before fading into a thinner head and medium collar. Lots of lacing. Aroma is like dry earth, faint barnyard funk, a healthy amount of peach is noticeable, but not at all overpowering. Taste is delightful: peachy farmhouse goodness. Dry/tart yeast. Earthy/floral hops. Simply divine. Nice high carbonation and medium-low body really make this fun to drink.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours clear yellow with a white ring. Smells of peach and tartness. Taste is tart, peach, oak, and subtle wine. Medium-bodied with a sharp texture and average mouth-carbonation, Goose Island Halia finishes with a lingering tartness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2013 765ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a small head of bubbles that quickly fades away. The body looks still with no lacing to speak of. The aroma shows notes of white peaches, sour citrus fruit, old wood, lacto, funky brett, barnyard, and some vinous notes from the barrels. The funk from the Brett and the sourness have started to take over the fruit. The flavor follows with the soured fruit and lacto up front, soft white peaches, wood, and some barnyard funk. Nicely sour with hints of fruit. Medium bodied with tingly carbonation that leads to a lengthy funky and tart finish. The fruit seems to have fallen in the back ground with the age, but still a really tast sour ale. Would like to try this fresh to see if the fruit is more prominent.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2016-09-13. Hazy dark pastel yellow body modest white head. 3+ Aroma has a good amount of funk when first poured but it dissipates, light alcohol, muted peach and vanilla. Flavour has a good amount of bitterness and light alcohol, mild peach and light wood. Finish brings together the flavours in a way that is a bit discordant. Vinous quality varies from a nice accent to overbearing. Average bodied palate, good carbonation. Interesting but a bit too much at times. I think the wood detracts from the highlights for me. 7/3-4/7/3/16 Bottle from Premier Gourmet, Buffalo.
