biggcb (464) - Harleysville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 16, 2008
Shared bottle. Pours a cloudy orange-yellow color with a thin off-white head. Aroma of peach, yeast, some spices. Flavor has a little peach, some sourness, some funky notes and a little of the yeastiness. Not bad, but nothing I would buy myself. Somewhat more like a saison or farmhouse.

This is definitely different, but I expect nothing less from this brewery having had a couple of other selections from them now. I do appreciate the use of local, and regional ingredients in the peaches. Has those same farmhouse qualities in the nose, light bodied and creamy with some lively carbonation. Slightly sour and bittersweet on the palate, grassy herbal notes, and finishes with some dry minerality.

AmEricanbrew (5575) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - MAY 7, 2008
Murky yellow with a thin white head. First whiffs are sour funk with ginger and peaches. Smooth with a medium body and light carbonation. Nice flavor is only lightly sweet with peaches, ginger, floral jasmine, pale malts and other spices. Has a mildly bitter finish. Worth a try if you can find this.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - APR 21, 2008
Nicely packaged in the paper wrap. Ends there. I’ll repeat what I say about Italian beer: We Italians make great food, great wine, great music, great art, and great love . . . but lousy beer. This was no exception. Straw body with a wisp of white head that you’d miss if you blinked. Faint presence of the promised peaches. Mostly malt and yeast and some spice. The flavor was tart/sour with a sour finish. Bad.

after4ever (6055) - Brier, Washington, USA - APR 5, 2008
750, corked, capped, and papered, at Shawn’s birthday gathering. Pours murky medium orange with some amber spots here and there. Light tan creamy foam on top for a second. Nice big peachy nose, with a trace whiff of mineral in there. Body comes on strong on the high side of medium with some nize fizz and some sharp tangy snap from the fruit and probably a bit of bugged sour funk as well. Plenty of peach, a bit of mineral, and a tiny trace of barnyardy sour on the mid-palate. Tidy dry finish. Not quite as good as the wrapper, but that wrapper is some pretty stiff competition.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 31, 2008
Pour is hazed light orangey yellow with a thin bright white head...it does sort of look like a peach...smell is lightly sweet and spicy with some pepper and clove, and hints of peach...nutmeg too...taste is quite spicy with some very familiar flavor from my past that I cannot remember or put a name too...it has lightly sweet flavors, and somehow tastes like a fruitcake...and that is not a good thing...

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 31, 2008
Sampled at the North Park Belgian Beer Party at my house on 3-29-08. Pours with a slightly cloudy, pale yeallow body topped by a thin to medium thick white head with a good amount of lacing. It’s slightly sour and lemony with a touch of grassy bitterness. Light bodied and crisp.

Kinz (3251) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAR 18, 2008
Pours a very haze peachy gold, so-so head, but it lasted nicely. Aroma is Belgian yeast spicey, a bit of pepper, and faint peach on the finish, very saison-like. Flavor is a dead-on match to the nose. There is a bit more peach evident as it warms up, but sort of on the musty side of things as opposed to the sweet side. Not bad, just wanted more. Should also point out that there is a bit of a sour note as well that lightens things up a bit.
