3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle split at CBC Islo during my 40th birthday crapfest, from that highly rated bottle shop in San Diego where the staff all hide behind the counter and there is no one to ask questions of, the one and only time I’ve ever wanted to - you know it ! 11/10/14.
Clear golden amber with a decent eggshell white covering.
Nose is dark fruit, spice, figs, bitter orange, peach essence.
Taste comprises rich fruit notes, peachy twang, spice, bitter orange, hint yeasty, straw.
Medium + body, fine carbonations, sweetish licks in the close.
Ok offering, lacks depth for the ABV but drinkable fayre... maybe not a whole 750 mind!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at Great Divide. Pours a hazy brown-orange with a white head. Nose is big earthy peaches followed with some funk followed by some Belgian yeast. Flavor is dominated by peaches leading quickly into yeast, fruit, and some sugary malt. Medium in body and a deep beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared in London during CR’s bday. Pours crystal clear gold with a frothy white head. The nose smacks of pale bread, alcohol and vague fruits. Big sweet flavor, quite sugary, fairly boozy, with lots of white bread and impressions of fruit. Full bodied with carbonation. Warming finish with more sugary bread, ripe peach, citrus. Pretty simplistic.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Great Divide where it pours up with a copper body that supports a light tan head of foam. The aroma offers up Belgian yeasty spices, apples and a bit of a peach to malty sweet sensation. The taste starts sweet with a molasses and a slick malty note that quickly gives way to thin smooth modest peach fruitiness and sweetened smooth Belgian yeasty spices. It gets more into dark fruity esters toward the finish with notes of dates, figs and a dash of plum and then a thin edge of black pepper. The ABV is very well hidden.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted at taproom. Slight peach aroma. I thought it might have more peach aroma. Got the peach at the beginning and en of the taste. Middle part of the taste is classic grand cru with big boozy malt. Mouthfeel is fluffy but thick. The peach sweetness leaves a pleasant after taste; like after peach cobbler. Nice beer.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled at pinball. I was warned about this and sure enough it was bad. Infected? Almost definitely something bad happened to it. Npeach flavor is more tangerine and some really harsh cinnamon something.
