Bottle has been aging for a year and a half roughly. Acidic aroma of peach. Pours amber with small amount of off white head. Very thin, unbelievable that this is 7.25%. Very tart peach, lots of oak bourbon barrel starts to come out as it warms up and I get closer to the bottom of the glass. Tons going on that I’m nowhere near qualified to explain. But its great, worth the wait.

Hazy mahogany pour with a tall, fluffy tan head that has great retention and leaves nice lacing and some brown floaties and sludge stuck in the head. Aroma is loaded with tart peach, toasted oak, lightly musty funky notes, wet hay, limestone and sweet and tart fruity notes, a hint of caramel, cereal and husky grain. Flavor is juicy tart peach, lots of vanilla laden oak, a little horse blanket, under ripe mulberries, light almond sweetness, light leather, lactic acidity, green woodiness and wet basement. Light body, sort of thin, acidic feel, medium, sharp carbonation. Really good stuff, the best peach character I have ever gotten from a beer and plenty of other good stuff going on.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2016 Bottle courtesy of hackobock. Pours hazy deep brown with a frothy goldenish offwhite head that leaves some thick trace on the glass while dissiapting. Smell is heavy fruity and slightly funky with sourdough crackers, peaches, apricots, lemon juice, yoghurt, hay, dry soil, barnyard, leather and lemon zest. Taste is sour, heavy fruity and slightly funky. Mouthfeel is soft, dry, tart and medium bodied. Finish is sour with sourdough crackers, dark bread, peaches, apricots, lemon juice, hay, minerals, barnyard and lemon zest. One hit wonder with intense peach charater, some funk and not too much more. Doesn’t matter though since it’s a peach dream. Damn good!

Bottle at Happy New Beer in Sätila 160116. Hazy copper/orange beer with a nice beige/yellowish head. Sourish peach aroma, magic peach by the way, grapes, oak, leather notes, some vanilla. Sour peach flavor, passion fruit, woody, tart, funky, again the peach is magic and adds even more perfection to this beer. Fantastic beer!

500ml bottle. Aroma is very peachy, like peach gummy rings. Sour taste, but not excessive. The peach is not very strong in the taste. Medium body.

500ml bottle enjoyed @ home, thanks to Jdizzle1! Pours hazy deep orange with a fizzy quick fading off-white head. Aroma is peaches, funky, sweet, oak, some vinegar and quite like the candy "Haribo Peaches". Flavour is medium sweet, light bitter and a medium acidic. Medium bodied, fizzy carbonation. Finish is slightly dry, acidic, light funk and a lot of peaches.

Poured a light orangish brown color with aromas of light sourness, peach pulp, peach skin, and some musk. Flavors follow suit, muskiness with some peachiness to it, solid, and enjoyable.
