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.

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.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 17, 2007
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.

draft @ bigwood fest - hazy gold with big white head bringing out the very tart aromas; also mixed with peaches, yeast and spice; rich, creamy texture, but wow this one was sour; a little too much for me

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!

Draft at the Bistro’s West Coast BA Fest, 11/10/07, Nose is tartness, citrus, light fruit, and spices; Clear yellow gold with a medium yellow-tinged head; flavor had peppery spiciness, light peachiness, and lemony tartness. Great sour! Tart but not too much!
