4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2016 From bottle, shared with Jens and Thilde. Pours hazy golden amber with a small white head. Aroma of peaches (duh!), funk, lots of lemon peel, sweet candy, light yoghurt, light honey. Taste is light honey, lots of peaches, light yoghurt, lots of funk and barnyard, alcohol is no where to be found. Full mouthfeel, quite high carbonation. Intense fruit, borderline synthetic, but this is really good!!! Well worth the wait.

Pours a hazy orange from the bomber thin white head. Aroma is huge Brett funk with slight stone fruit. Taste is more toward the fruit with a hint of earth and lots of barnyard. Mild acidity, fruity, nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From notes. Enjoyed at Doug’s house for the Epic Peach and Apricot debacle of a tasting that happened on July 9. 750 mL bottle. I am stoked to try this one! The pour is a golden amber color with a little haziness and a small off white head that falls down pretty quickly. The aroma is interesting. There is a funky peach juice all over it at the start, and then it moves through ha tart skin, light dustiness and into a spicy saison grain type of finish. It’s pretty complex, and I wasn’t expecting it. The flavor is a little more strange. There is a funky peach juice going on, but it tastes almost a little syrupy. The sourness doesn’t hardly pop at all. There is a tart skin on the finish. The mouth feel is a little thicker and carries a softer carbonation. The after is almost a lightly sweet tart juice and a lingeringly funky dustiness. It’s really interesting. Not sure how I feel about it entirely.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Yields a clouded amber-yellow color with a decent sized head.
Lots of ripe, almost overripe peaches on the nose with an earthy quality and ice-tea sweet malts. A faint, funky, dusty sourness cuts through the prominent fruitiness, which reveals a luscious sweetness, reminding me of a peach jogurt.
Has a medium carbonation among a fuller body with a late dryness, coating up the sourness.
Drinks with a heavy, fermented fruitiness from the very beginning, complimented by sweet, cakey malts and a creamy softness. Has a jogurty sourness, which gets accompanied by a perfumy peach fruitiness throughout. Finish with more acidic jogurt, still soft on the tongue with even more perfumy peach.
Seems a bit unbalanced to me due to the overly artificial, perfume dominance, which is pretty intense on both aromas and flavors. Got a nice, well fitting tartness, which adds to the richness of the peaches. Unfortunately its pushing too far, adding a distractive artifical flavor to the taste.

BB 01/2019; bottle # 5925.
Couleur orange, col blanc.
Bouquet est fort plaisant relevé par unf ruité de pêche assez développé. Retro-nasal de brett restant plus en retrait.
Palais brett perce sur un profil restant réchauffant des 10%, le profil de la pêche ajoute une certaine douceur., malté plaisant Assurant un fini caramel. Boisé ajoute une fine note épicée qui tranche bien avec le brett.

Tap at Ale Arsenal. This is an amazing palate cleanser. So light and refreshing, with the peaches really jumping out of the glass to create a clear aromatic and flavor profile. A little mellowing from the oak balanced well. I did not get a lot of Brett, but did not care!

Yowza. At the epic peach/apricot sour tasting. Aroma is peach funk juice, sweet, slight tart, wow. Appearance is amber golden, off white head, slight haze. Taste is peaches, funky as fuck, skins, barnyard, very saisonish, great. Mouthfeel is light body, light crisp carbonation, peach funk aftertaste. Overall, solidly good.

Style et résumé: Coup de coeur.
Comment: Merci Patrick. Bouteille #20101 best by 10/2020.
Portrait: Une robe jaune avec une mousse blanche. Un nez de pêche et de bonbon aux pêches comme ceux de Maynard. Une bouche intense, sèche avec des pêches qui ne veulent pas s’en aller. Facile mais oh combien facile à boire. Avec ses 10 dégrées c’est dangereux. Cette bière a peu de défaut. Les pêches sont là. Difficile de faire mieux.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle best before 10/2020, from joenugs, shared with Nelson on 6/25/16.
Massive amounts of head/carbonation as usual from Logsdon. Light yellow tint to its otherwise snow white color and a bright, clear, copper-canteloupe-golden body.
Big peachy nose is almost all skin, lending leathery, spicy and even earthy notes to the otherwise well-malted (cookies and cream, dry caramel, vanilla) and moderately "bretted" nose. Some definite booze to it, though it’s not intense, with heavy lime and hickory nut skin on the finish mixing with the peach to add a unique complexity.
Strong peach skin/pit in the flavor with white grape and heavily attenuated peach juice. Tons of acidity resulting with moderate brett tartness but also a bit of inelegant bread and heavy floral character from the brett. Lip smacking juiciness and a richly malted but fairly well attenuated texture with all of the full, fairly tight carbonation that comes with their beers. Maybe a bit too much carbonation and body, in the end with some booziness to boot. But the peaches are done better here, and uniquely so, than any other peach beer I can recall. So much leather, white grape, tart juice and wonderfully integrated with the malt.

750ml bottle. Shiny pale orange colour. Nice medium white head. Peach, hints of barnyard, pear, juiciness in the aroma. Peach, leathery and earthy notes at first. Hints of pears in the middle. Peach again. Juiciness. Peach and hints of white wine in the end. Flowery notes. Fruity aftertaste. Phenomenal, well balanced, juicy, very drinkable sour beer.
