Big Wood Fest. Holy funk,. Tons of brett on the nose is awesome, but pretty dominating. Not crazy sour, just good sour peach flavor with an awesome oak/nutty finish. The finish was one of those tastes that you can’t put your finger on...but we figured it out; Cheerios. Weird.

UPDATED: APR 21, 2008 Tap at Brouwers’ Bigwood Fest ’07.
Pours a cloudy yellow-brown with no head. Aroma of mild sour lemon, home-frozen Michigan peaches, mild luscious brett funk. Flavor of dry wood and lemon, lovely peach essence, mellow, little sugar, soft brett.
Incredibly well-crafted, splendidly drinkable sour ale.

Candied apricot nose with a nice brett follow-thru. Acidic and very fruity on the palate with a very soft brett character. Ever so slightly sweet and fruit filled finish.

Tasted on tap at the 2007 Bistro West Coast Barrel Aged Beer Festival. This sour ale pours a light yellow orange gold color. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is fruity and tart with lots of peach flavors. A medium bodied sour ale. The malts are fruity and sweet. Lots of subtle peach flavors. It fairly tart and crisp and sort of bretty, but is has a nice sweetness to it as well. Nice beer. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is fairly tart.

On draft at the Bistro’s BA Fest 07. This turned out to be in my top five favorites at aa fest filled with amazing beers. The flavors seemed so pronounced yet simple at the same time. Poured a hazy yellow color. Aroma is all peaches and brett. Somewhat sour. Strong peach notes with bretty goodness mixed in. I dare you to tell me you don’t taste a Cap’n Crunch note towards the end!
