Drank most of a 75 cl. thx. to Kraddel. Pours a bright golden with a white head. Smell is sweet compote, canned peaches, peel, summer fruits, Belgian yeast and blossoms. Taste is compote, canned apriot, canned peaches liquid, blossoms, honey, light yoghurt Belgian yeast in the ending with some 0% chocolate milk chocolate. Lovely slightly creamy, compote body. This is awesome, I love, finely a fruit beer like it should be instead of that chemical crap that usually should pass one – 2nd? I think great non-sour fruitbeer I try.

Draft @ ‘t Schooltje, merci Carlo. Dorée brumeuse, col blanc. Arôme est sublime. Pêche et bouquet tropical, ici le tout est fermenté et laisse place à un léger profile fruité/sucré qui est mis en valeur par un bourbon et murissage en barrique qui est en parfaite balance avec cette bière de faible teneur. En bouche, bière fruitée avec de suite la pêche qui couvre le palais, ici pas de faux sucre qui vient nuire à l’expérience. Le bourbon se fait discret et ajoute ce côté chêne-boisé qui se prête au jeu de la douceur fruitée et d’une légère amertume houblonnée le tout sur un léger profile de grains-malté. A 4.5% le tout est frais, fruité, facile à boire et complexe. L’usage de la pêche est judicieux car on ne tombe pas dans l’habituelle bière trop sucrée. Le tout est relevé par le bourbon qui vient juste titiller la fin de bouche sans prendre le dessus.

gEUS (982) - Linden, BELGIUM - DEC 9, 2012
on tap at ’t Schooltje - pours hazy straw yellow with a steady, 1 finger fine mousse. Aroma is clearly peach, but with subtle floral and malty notes. Light body and with a wonderful balance between fruitiness - freshness - sweetness. Semi-dry finish and hoppy notes coming along. A perfect aperitive with a nice complexity (now that is something way else than your average industrial bubbles)!

Very good fruit beer. The soft smooth taste of the peaches goes really well with the round vanilla tones of the bourbon.

24/11/12 - on tap @ Struise Schooltje (Oostvleteren) - BB: n/a (2012-1305) Thanks to Carlo for the sample!

Clear pale yellow beer, big creamy white head, pretty stable, little adhesive. Aroma: very fruity, bit cheesy, peaches, some yoghurt, herbal. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: pretty bitter, grassy, herbal touch, little fruity, some citrus. Aftertaste: bitter and dry, grassy, slightly fruity. Wouldn’t be able to guess the fruits in this one though.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 27, 2013
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a hazy yellow with a lacing white head. Thick, sweet peach aroma paired with subtle vanilla. Light body, sweet and fruity, loads of peaches with a little hops. Not so much Bourbon character, but a very well composed beer - if a strange blend! 270413

Ibrew2or3 (6767) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Enjoyed at the 4de Gents Bierfestival, 2013. The 75cl bottle pours with a deep gold body that has a thin copper core and supports a nearly bright white head of foam. The modest aroma offers up muted peach fruit notes, cantaloupe, cucumber and a few milligrams of salt. The taste has a nice smooth yet muted apricot and peach fruit sensation along with lesser amounts of citrus tart spikes here and there. It runs into some soured citrus to midway and into the finish. This is very crisp and snappy with a sort of sessionable sour mash Berliner feel to it too. Cool beans.

75cl bottle shared at DSG and jsquite tasting at Chris’. It pours a hazy straw yellow colour with a large soapy white head. Aroma is full on the fruit notes with mainly peaches. Loads of peaches, really. Almost peach marmelade. Taste is lightly funky and grassy, light barnyars, and big peachy notes again. Light sourness throughout and light sweetness in the finish. Some citrus notes. Medium to light body with average carbonation. Overall, way above expectations and very enjoyable, although lacking in complexity for sure.

Bottle at Chriso tasting 20/01/2013. Cloudy yellow, looks a bit like pineapple juice. Thin white head that sticks around. Alittle funk, belgian phenols, horsey aroma. Flavour in pineapple, fruity esters. Low carbonation. A little residual sugar. Did not detect any bourbon.

Tasted at RBBWG II - Thanks Dylan. Pours a pale dirty yellow color with a delicate off white head. Smell is difficult to pinpoint...some fruit..peaches, pears? Taste is delicate, wheat, fruit and finishes a little dry and slightly bitter. Light body less than average carbonation but nice. Overall a nice, light, refreshing brew.
