4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Murky, swampy sunburst orange with an opaque bottom & semi-translucent top; the white head fizzles out almost instantly to a meek collar. Aroma loaded with super sour lactic acid notes, acetic peach skin, mild juicy peach flesh, apricot, tart lemon, hefty yogurt, & a solid overcast of lightly musty, sweatsock funk with a bit of damp hay. Taking a sip is like biting into a lemon. Sour, acidic, puckering, & juicy all at once. Peach, lemon, yogurt, apricot, lacto, a touch of funky hay, & a huge vinegar finish. Lingering peach skin, lactic acid, & vinegar that dries out your palate like the Mojave. This is a pretty great example of an American attempt at a fruited lambic.

Bottle; Pour is murky gold with a frothy white head initial - It retains on the average / below average I suppose. Anyway - Iím getting used to these Upland lambics as a member this year but frankly - this last iteration of Peach really stuck out for me - Firstly - it meshes very well with the base beer ,naturally - not quite as well as Persimmon but it is nice. What really stuck out was the finish line - This beer has an amazing lush peach note at the end that really impressed me (as a peach fan in fruit form, however).

Bottle shared by Brandon, thanks! Pour is cloudy light orange with a small white head. Aroma is peachy with a dry tartness and light balloon. Flavor is really tart in two waves. First wave is tart with light herbal notes followed by a second very very tart wave. Long lightly tart peach in the finish. Really sour but clean. Nice.

>> Thanks to the 38 Degrees/Full Pint tasting group. Murky straw pour, white peach juice, low foam. Juicy peach cobbler nose with small white vinegar. Taste is highly citric, very sour. Low acetic heat finish with mega lemon. Drinkable, but a bit one note.

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of light funkiness, some sour notes, a lot of peaches, some pale malts, light oak, and some other light fruits. Flavor the same with a lot of peaches and a very sour finish. Average texture. A very sour and cool beer.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2014 From cpetrone-thanks, Chris! 12-11-13 bottling date. Hey-Thatís the night my wife went in to labor with our 2nd! Cloudy straw orange with peach floaters...seriously. Great nose of horse blanket, stone fruit, lemon. Quite tart, but some juicy sweet peach lurking...peach becomes very pronounced as it warms, but ultimately a bit too tart. Wondering if I will finish splitting this two ways. Four would have been better. Great peach expression but a bit out of balance.

Sampled at a STL tasting - Pours hazy orange with a small white head. The aroma has lots of peach that is lush and fleshy along with some sharp sourness. It has a medium / light body that is quite crisp and has lively carbonation. The taste starts off with heavy vinegar sourness, rich peaches and spice/pepper. The finish is crisp and lively. Really nice.

Bottle thanks to Phil. Pours a cloudu orange with small frothy white head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is strong peach, funk, oak. Thin mouthfeel with nice tart peach, light funk, and very nice sour finish. Easy to drink, very impressive.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 ml bottle shared by ahalloin. Thanks Tony! Pours a hazy golden peach color with lasting wisp of white head and slight lacing. Aroma is bright fresh peaches, down to the complex nuttiness of peach pits. Flavor is a rushing surge of intense sour peach and the tartness of peach skins. Itís mind blowing, actually. I could use a bit more oak and vanilla notes in this, but this beer is a feat of brewing. Outstanding.
