COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired from a conversation with good friend and editor of the Great Lakes Brewing News, Bill Metzger, Brewmaster Steve blended a Belgian Amber Ale with 120# of Michigan Harmony peaches from Husteds Farm Market in a merlot cask. 4 wild yeast fermentations later and yet another cask aging results in an exquisite sour peach ale.

Very nice peach character neutralized by a smidge too much acidity. Good beer but falls short of awesome because of the tartness.

Enjoyed at GTMW 2012. Pours an amber gold with a thick cream head. Smells of oranges and spice. Sour orange cream flavor with a citrus finish.

madvike (2759) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 20, 2011
On tap at GTMW, described by the dude pouring as a "flavor bomb" - Pours amber with small tan bubbles. Tons of peach on the nose--light and fruity--though a little plastic works its way into the funk. Taste is dry and light fruit with a bit of brett. Sweet finish, with fruit juice and real light citrus funk. Smooth and slick. Not my favorite, but it was interesting.

thewolf (11191) - Kolding, DENMARK - FEB 20, 2011
Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Clear orange-red with a small, creamy, white head. Aroma has marzipan, a vanilla touch, light cellar, lots of peach, mild tartness. Medium carbonation, dry and light creamy palate. Good tart flavour, light fruity, apples, some pear sweetness, light marzipan, a hint of apricot and a good dose of peach. Light oakiness. Really delicious.

Silphium (3173) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 30, 2010
On tap at HopCat, Grand Rapids. Fiery orange-red body, thin ring of off-white carbonation. Tart, sour nose, fruity and woody, tannic, with vinaigrette notes. Tart, funky, tannic body with peach and wood, finishing wheaty with some biscuit notes. Very good.

brokensail (11085) - Orange County, California, USA - NOV 30, 2010
A: The pour is a dark amber color with a thin off-white/khaki head. The growler leaked a bit on the way, so the carbonation is a bit less than optimal. S: Lots of peaches on the nose, certainly living up to the name of the beer. A slight lactic tartness to it as well as some metallic notes, caramel malts, and a hint of oak. T: A mild spice character to the beer that I didn’t really pick up on the nose. The acidity is more noticeable on the palate than it was on the nose as well, and a huge amount of peach flavor. Some other fruit notes such as cherries. Fairly sweet, too, despite the -bal aging, sourness, and fruit. M: The body is medium with a low to medium carbonation, leaning on the low side. D: You definitely have to like peaches to enjoy this one. A bit sweeter than I was expecting, but certainly as advertised...

Tmoney99 (10811) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 11, 2010
Tap in snifter. Poured a clear reddish brown color with a minimal to average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy sour peach and fruit oil aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This beer exceeded my expectation.

SrSilliGose (3260) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - AUG 24, 2010
tap at livery 5th anniversary party. pours a clear orange amber. first of all, i can’t believe this beer is 14% abv, seems like 7. merlot barrel gives a medicinal cherry fruit character to the light peachy undertones. some light balsamic tartness. lot of wood, oak, some light funky plastic. peach character seems a bit muddled by the big wood presence. good nonetheless. interesting beer.
