Bottle @ Aaron’s Wedding Eve Shindig. Thanks, Steve...I believe. Clear straw colored beer with minimal foam. Lots of lemon and alcohol character to the nose. Has a slight oxidized/cardboard note to it as well. Woody, fruity...not necessarily peach, though. Low carbonation doesn’t quite work for me either. Not a big fan.

Steve_0 (3424) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 7, 2015
Bottle at Aaron’s Pre-Wedding Bash. Pour is clear yellow with no head. Big sour aroma - lemons, acidic, biscuit, oaky, peaches, some pepper and flowers in the aroma. Taste is tangy, lemony, biscuity, heavy oaky, white grapes, and apples with a big sour finish. Slick mouthfeel with low carbonation. Kind of a letdown.

Sarlacc83 (1414) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 16, 2015
Bottle at the Bailey’s event. Thrilled at the chance to try this. A: Clear gold, white ring of head, lacing. N: Peach, lemon, oak, light rum, grapefruit rind, cracker, some white wine/chardonnay, funk, cheese and barnyards. T: Quite sour, lightly sweet from the fruit. M: Medium body, light carbonation, no alcohol presence. O: A really good variation of La Tache. Very different from Block 15 Peche and Logsdon Peche N Brett, which is a good thing as far as I’m concerned. Definitely one to try if you can find it.

hopscotch (10123) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2015
Bottle (dregs)... This beer rocks!… Pours murky and straw-colored with a small, fizzy, white head. The aroma is a funky, acidic and fruity collage of lemons, aged cheese, barnyard notes and a measureable peach component that’s not at all overbearing. Medium-bodied with modest carbonation. The flavor is lightly sour, bready and fruity - peaches and lemons. Finishes fruity, tart and lightly sweet. Thanks to newcigarz for sharing this world class bottle of beer!

harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - FEB 17, 2015
Well, was planning to down this with Jace Marti, but alas, Delta airlines fucked us. Pours golden and turbid with a near glass surface, little head or foam presence. Smells of sweet and tart peaches, some oak, not much rum, lemon, some soily earth, maybe a touch of cream. Flavor is tart with some more lemon, sharp grain, tannic oak, some vitamin and a hint of sweet rum. Thin with surprisingly high carb for the appearance, but a prickly feel to it and a nice wet finish. Nice beer. Prolly not worth the asking price in many respects, but a nice beer.

750 ml bottle to snifter. Looks good; a somewhat hazy pineapple with white head that dissipates quickly and entirely. Smells tart and rummy with a nice light peach presence in the background. Tastes like it smells with a pleasantly smooth mouthfeel that’s medium-bodied. Delicious!

maxwelldeux (4169) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle at a bottle share. Pours a slightly hazy yellow golden color with a moderate white head on there. Nose is sour with some dry and funky notes to it. Taste is moderately sweet up front, actually, with a nicely sour fruity end to it. Yum...

Bottle:   First off, big thanks to after4ever for sharing this absolute gem of a beer.   Bright, floral, barnish, tart yet sweet.   Champagne and white wine notes.   The carbonation just dances on your tongue.   Slight fruitiness, soft peach and citrus bits.   Great balance, wonderful body.   So unique too!   Gives me goosebumps!   One of the better beers I have had in a long while!   Thanks for sharing Tom!   This should easily be a top 100 beer, if not top 50.
