UPDATED: JAN 18, 2009 School bus yellow, tangerine funk nose with a sweet juicy backdrop. Flavors had tart sour fruit, chewy apricot & tangering..bright, super clean, but with the perfect amount of sweetness riding along. Nice cheesy funk going on too...especially in the finish. This is one tight fucking beer

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2009 Bottle at Lost Abbey’s awesome RBSG tasting. Yellow color. Small bubble head. Wonderful aroma with lots of sour and peachiness. Medium sour flavor. Super easy to drink. Nice twang on the tongue. A hint more tart and less drinkable than Cable Car, so I prefer Cable Car a hint more, but both are incredible.10,3,9,4,19:4.5 Rerate: Tasted from Sean’s bottle at Cantilon tasting. Still excellent, but similar to the many wonderful cantillons there. 8,3,8,5,18:4.2

Thanks to Tomme & team for sharing this at RBSG 2008 The white peaches used in this ale complement the sourness nicely. The balance of sweet & sour makes this a very tasty brew.

750ml bottle from Toncatcher via Tomme, wow, I’ve waited a long time for this, and it was worth it. Shared with Toncatcher, Padrefan, Fordest and AlohaC. Thanks so much Dennis. Pours orange with a half finger bright white head. Nose is super tart with notes of apricot and some peach. Taste is wow wow big time super tart sour and really very nice. Some fruit in there too some peach and some apricot. Love it.

Lucky enough to catch this one on tap at the brewery. Cloudy golden with almost no head. Strong sour fruit aroma. Good sour bite and peach taste. Quite good.

BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 10, 2008
This one has what I lovingly refer to as pucker power. Hazy and unfiltered, with a musty kind of stinky cheese aroma, almost Burgundian in nature. Slightly dusty, with a fair amount of tart acidic fruit flavors and just a hint of fruity peach flavors in the finish that become more apparent as it warms. Enjoyable, with just the right amount of Brett.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 1, 2008
Draught at Brouwer’s Café: Pinkish straw, very hazy, thin white sudsy head, falls quickly.   Semi-sweet musty nose, really dusty and basement like.   Pale sourness on the tongue, moderate sweetness, but the Peach aspect is more like the pit than the meat.   Gets a bit more sweet as it warms.   Decent sourness, almost more inclined to say it is fairly tart.   Lingers long, tiz good and dry.   Very clean.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Does have a really dusty or moldy like aftertaste.   Not as peachy as say New Belgiums offering, but equally as good.

Sampled at the second annual Bistro’s West Coast Barrel Aged Beer Fest: Pours a hazy goldenrod with a frothy, well-lacing white head. Aroma of tart sweet lemon and some earthy oak complexity along with notes of olive oil. Body starts semi-sweet with some funky earthy complexity and faint vegetal character toward a tart, slightly puckering finish. Has some mild earthy peachskin flavor throughout. Pretty interesting.
