3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml capped. Pours a deep slightly hazed golden with a bit of a copper tint to it and lasting white head. Really peach forward, fuzzy peach skin, hints of bright white grape, lemony, bits of vanilla, slight neutral oak, hints of damp wool. Medium mouth feel, carb is somewhat loose. Tart peach up front, picks up lemon and some brett in the mid palate and finishes pretty clean with some mineral notes in the finish. Doesnít drink at all like 10%. I would have to agree that this one should be drank now if you want to enjoy the peaches here.

Stouts and Porters II. Thanks to Bruce for this rare palate cleanser. Cloudy gold beer, little cream coloured head. Smells vaguely of Christmas Spices. Palate is light and dry. Slightly bitter seltzer minerals and light mellow peach. Light dry finish. Approachable and drinkable.

Bottle from Alan with Eric and Alan. Pours murky peach orange with thin white head. Light lace. Aromas of peach, pepper, wood, and funk. Taste is sour and tart peach, vanilla, oak, lactic acid. So god damn smooth for 10%. Love this one.

Sweet baby Jesus, this is an amazing example of great beer. Pours a beautiful hazy orangish- yellow. The aroma is the only area where this lacks as I pick up some peach and funk but not a lot more. The taste is absolutely and completely complex. Sweet peach, sour peach, tangerine, bread, butter, cream...the list could go on for quite some time as this evolves on every sip and at nearly every degree as it warms. Superb carbonation and mouthfeel leave me searching for more even though the bottle is empty. Overall, I realize why this was so sought after, itís a truly fantastic beer. Glad I got a bottle, wish I hadnít traded the other two but am glad I could spread the love.

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2013 Bottle shared at Bruceís, London during The Stouts Tasting, Pt. II - thanks, Bruce! Time for the palate cleanser. Pours hazy gold with a large, foamy white head. Light spices in the nose, some golden fruits, sugary fruits, peaches, mellow funk. Medium to big sweet flavor, light tangy peaches, very little funk, faint lemons. Medium bodied with fine to average, massaging carbonation. Clean finish, a bit more funk, some peach, orange, lemon, hints of minerals. Lovely, very drinkable beer.

Big thanks to GT2/travlr for busting this one open! Hazy apricot pour. Nose and flavor bring tart peach, lactic bite, lemon and other citrus. Good sour character but not as full in the fruit department as the top tier nectar fruit sours out there (Fou Foune or even Cascade Apricot I enjoy more). Still, a pleasure and a treat.

Bottle at Brave Horse Tavern. The beer is a cloudy yellow-orange color with a medium foamy white head that dissipates slowly to a patchy film. Rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of peaches, biscuit malt and yeast. Full-bodied with flavors of tart peaches, oaky brett and yeast. The finish is fruity with a peach and bready malt aftertaste. Very good all around.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
750, capped and lightly waxed. Thanks, M! Pours a cloudy medium amber with bright golden edges. Loose creamy, sudsy platinum blond head. Big beautiful fresh fruit nose--not quite like a burst of juice when you bite into a fresh peach, but still very forward and sweet and natural. Itís a strong flavorful, just not overwhelmingly explosive. No brett showing. Creamy medium body with a lively carb--not fizzy, just effervescent. Bright fresh fruit on the mid palate. Long sweet finish. Curious what the brett might do to this, given time. The fruit will fade and itís hard to see other character popping up out of the brett. It feels like itís probably peaking now. Man...what a peak. Wonderful beer.
