COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
From the Remixed Tracks, this is a blend of Cuvee from bourbon barrels blended into The Angelís Share (bourbon) with peaches and topped off with Project X (our wild fermentation project) to balance the peachesí sweetness with some acidity. The blend proportions are 60% Angelís Share, 20% Cuvee de Tomme and 20% Project X.

TheAlum (6860) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 1, 2016
375ml bottle acquired via trade on BA. Shared with deyholla. Pours a deeper carmelized brownish hue, a gentle haziness with toasty chocolatey color and glow. A subtle bubbly ringer dies down and laces minimally. Aromas throw a punchy carmelized and richer bourbon barrel appeal. Lots of vanilla, subtle brown sugar and coconut meet punchy cherries, sweet and tart. Some peachy nectar, subtle sour red fruit, a spiciness. Carmelized, biscuity, and vanilla meet caramel sweetness, a bit more oak. The cherries set the pace with the peachy nectar coming in subtly but sufficiently. A bit tart, the wild yeast is subtle, vinous and a bit fruity overall. Initial is significantly more tart than the nose let on, punchy Cuvee De Tomme and peachy nectar really catch on. Lactic zesty punch, sour cherries and some vinous fruit character. Peach acidity, sour cherries, subtle wine barrel as bourbon, vanilla, firmer oak character punch the back of the palate nicely. The sweeter, firmer base faded away and lighted with still that carmelized and slightly oxidized appeal, largely covered by a potent acidity, some firmer wild yeast, lots of redisual fruit character and punchy tart appeal. A nice oak appeal is rich, the nose here showing a lot more of that potent Bourbon barrel appeal, carmelized, coconut, vanilla and spirit. Really nice sourness grows as a wave into the backend, matching the tannic appeal, funk and cobwebs. A tannic liveliness, rich barrel nose, pretty pour and a lot of flavor going on. A really neat evolved blend of Angels Share, subtle carbonation, but the acidity and bite, potent vinous and sour character from the wild and CdT appeal really make this interesting.v

yngwie (16423) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle. Itís a lightly hazy light brown to dark amber body under a more or less missing head of biege color. The aroma is lightly sourish, with lots of berries and a generic fruityness. Caramel notes. Some bourbon hints, a faint coconut touch. Itís sourish and fruity on the palate, very peachy, with a berry-like sourness and a faint vinegar touch. Itís full-bodied and warming, with a soft carbonation. Stairway to Heaven is probably my all time favorite rock song, but the beer is just a really good one, quite a way from the top, but still fine. 141220
