Reddish-orange pour with a white head. The aroma has a good bit of peach and biscuit malt notes. The flavor is fairly juicy with some big peach, mango and apricot character plus some biscuit malt, light tartness and light funk. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice beer

Bottle courtesy of PaulUnwin. Cheers, Paul! Pours a murky orange-brown with a white head, very thin. Nose is peach, nectarines, oak, vinous character and some funk. Flavor is similar with a vinous character, funk, some peach, nectarine, and stone fruit with oaky funk. Light in body and very complex overall.

Bottle @ 5 Kay, 7.5 Kay, 10 Kay Tasting. Thanks to whoever shared this! Amber orange pour with a massive craggy white head. Lovely orchard fruits on the nose. Nectarine and peaches. Mellow marshmallow and brett. Some wood and pollen. Taste is similar. Bright summery fruits. More peach. Delicate citrus, oranage. Light wood and tart brett. Dry finish. Light and easy to drink. Active carb provides some mineral characteristics. Nice.

Smell is almost like a sour red. You get hints of stone fruit and funk in there. Taste is like a sour red mixed with a bit of stone fruit, brett, and oak. In the finish you get all of that followed by a punch of bread/yeast/wheat. Medium body, high carbonation, and mild foam.

Sarlacc83 (1414) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 24, 2015
Part of the RBSG vertical. Thanks Jer! A: Cloudy gold, some white head. N: Lemon, funk, earthiness, attic spaces, acetone, vinegar, and some green apple. T: Very tart with lots of acetone. M: Light body, sharp carbonation. O: Not a fan, and in fact, I’m surprised that 007 had more stone fruit flavor than this one - though the peach is probably contributing to the acetone profile.

750mL bottle, pours a cloudy murky dark orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out loads of oak, some tart peaches and light wood. Flavour is super dry, with lots of oak, wood and dry fruity tannins. Nice and dry, with an oaky finish. Excellent.

Draft. Cloudy burnt orange, like mulled cider, with thin head of grayish bubbles. Complex aroma. Barnyard funk provides a backdrop for sweet cherry, peach, sour apricot, orange peel and caramel. Displays rich aged character I’ve only previously found in Cantillon products. Not as tart as expected. Definitely some fruit juice in here -- the sweet/sour balance is right on. Sweet apricot and peach up front, a little sour lemon, some vinegar (leaning balsamic), and the swallow delivers sweeter cherry and caramel malt. A little weak at the finish. Allow it to sit on the tongue for a while and the apricot really comes forward. Viscous medium body, mild carbonation like pepper. Alcohol is unnoticeable. Good but not mind-blowing. The sour yeast need more time to take hold, methinks. I’d give it a year or two.
