3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks Jenny for sharing this. Pours to a glowing copper body with a foamy white head and some rapid carbonation. Aroma of peaches and lemon zest with some sweet sugars like a cinnamon molasses. Flavors are malty up front with some peaches and funk. After sitting on the tongue, unfortunately, there is a light metallic characteristic to it. I wouldnít have known it had hominy grits unless you told me. Medium dry body with a sharp effervescence up front and a dry white wine like finish. As the beer opens up, it doesnít have as much of that metallic quality. I wonder if age will make this beer better as the brett would make it funkier.

Enjoyed at home from the cellar (bottle). Pours a peachy yellow-orange with a thick white head. It dissipated quickly leaving a thin white rings clinging to the glass. The smell is of sour peaches and tickles the nose a bit. It is creamy with some peach notes in the background. I little burn from the carbonation, but not distracting. A slight metallic in the aftertaste and not a dry finish. It leaves you with old fruit in the basement kind of taste.

Aroma is peaches, spices and bananas/bubble gum. The flavor is peaches, spices and a mix of sweet and sour in the finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tastes like a good beer more than anything. Its cloury apricot color and pours with a 1/2" head. The aroma is like sweet grain alcohol and some stiff Belgian yeast mustiness. Calling this new Belgium trippel would have been more fitting. Iím sure thereís all kinds of nice adjunct peaches in there but it doesnít matter. Yeah, I can taste em but moreover I can taste all the funky mustiness the yeast imparts to this good brew. May just be new Belgiumís best on accident. -1 on the palate because its too sweet. Take the peaches out and it just might be even better.

Tap at Harryís Lips of Faith Tap Takeover. Hmmm, this is interesting! Pours clear light amber with a small white head and good lacing. Aroma is yeast, a bit of funk, of course peach, and bready notes. Flavor is peach, yeast, somewhat undefined spicy and a noticeable lemon rind bitter finish.

Bomber poured a hazy peach with a lingering ring of ivory foam. Aromas of biscuit, horseblanket, peach and light honey. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of peach, straw and barnyuard funk with a crisp dry finish.

A solid second to the Clutch they released last year. Young bretts mixed with peach juice equals awesomeness!! Young brett beers are not only being highlighted at New Belgium but also at Crooked Stave (hit up the WWBI - Unbelieveabe).
I feel this show cases how bretts can help accent and influence a beer in its early stages. I am excited to see how it does with proper aging in a year or two. I believe it will be peach-tastic!! But you canít age peach beers forever, Iíd say two to three years max before the fruit starts to let go.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2012 22 oz bottle - pours very clear, golden color with white, bubbly head, a lot like draft macro or champagne. Nice sweet and sour aromas going on, changing and morphing, peachy fer sure, but also some good yeasty, Brady notes. Reminds me of Geuze with some brett. Soapy tartness. Lighter bodied with some good fruit, tartness, ending with a dry, hoppy, spicy finish. Long finish that gets airier with fruit as it lingers. A bit of alcohol apparent at 9.6%, but nothing to cry about. Thatís a good reminder that while itís definitely a nice beer to enjoy on the porch or patio, itís not meant to be a pounder! Iíd enjoy again.

Smells like a peach flavored dirty hippie. Earthy with peach. Kind of all over the place. Honey colored with quickly disappearing head that remains at the edges. This beer is super all over the place. I feel like I would love it if I still was a smoker. Peach sweetness, lemon, low on the funk for sure but it is there on the back end. The flavors compete instead of compliment. Kind of a bummer.

Bottle with Carla from Belmont Station. Pours a clear gold with fine white foam. Smells slightly fuzzy of peach juice, light hopping and a hint of alcohol. Tastes juicy of peaches with lots of sweetness and just a hint of alcohol.
