Batch #1
Tasted in summer 2012 with Curtis and the Nashville crew. Pours hazy yellow/orange with an average white head that leaves a nice collar of lace. The nose is nicely sour with tons of lemon acidity, a hint of white wine vinegar, and tons of peach, trending to the under-ripe. The flavor is a bit more ripe with peach, quite sour but not abrasive, white wine vinegar, and a touch of vanilla barrel treatment. The body is light and tannic with average carbonation and a long sour peach finish. Big thanks to Sean von Tagen for sharing this one with me so many different times.

Batch 3 Pours a peach meat color with a fine white sheet. Smells sour, lactic bite is there before I even get into it. Then there is some sweet peach, some grain, some funk. Nice nose, I’m anticipating some really sour beer here.....It’s sour, then, some bicarb, some funky brett notes. Clean finish. the peaches aren’t there for me. Medium on light bodied with medium on high carb and a semi dry finish. Nice beer, not a beer you’d nut off to get to...Honestly.

Thanks to tom10101 for arranging the trade, thanks to (sorry. I forgot your handle) for the actual beer. Pours a pale golden and is topped by a small head that transform into a thin veil but you can easily revive it. Low lacing power, though. Aroma is of peaches, sour wheat and grass. Taste is tart, fruity (bursting with peaches and apricots). It also contains some light wheat notes and yeast. Mouthfeel is really light, almost watery. This isn’t a bad thing necessarily, it is really drinkable. Really nice and never too much.

douglas88 (6122) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 12, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2014 Glass at the brewery. Pours a somewhat cloudy orange color with a large white head. A huge nose of peaches, massive dusty cheese. The flavor is more massive Brett/cheese, sweet peaches, tart at times, vinous, oak, the base of tart peaches comes in big at times like a sparkling wine. Huge dusty cheese.

Mega Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Cheers to Bruce. Very hazy gold beer, small white head. Palate is crisp and dry. Light tantalising acidity. Mild floralness and a touch of worcester sauce. Crisp dry finish.

Bottle. Off the menu offering from Bruce at that crazy mega tasting. Been looking forward to this one for a while - cheers! It pours hazy golden-orange with a small white head. The nose is soft peach, juicy fruits, sherbet, apricot yogurt, funk and wood. The taste is crisp, tart, plenty of peach and apricot, earth, straw, funk, sherbet and hay with a dryish finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Has a nice amount of sweetness behind it to balance out the tartness. Crisp, tart and fruity. Very quaffable stuff.

Bottle split at the Broken Flatmate tasting, big thanks to Bruce for whipping this one out, 03/01/14. Murky orange amber with little in the way of a head or covering. Nose is tarte fruit, orange sherbet, straw, fleshy peach, tarte apricot, light damp wood shavings. Taste comprises lemon rind, hay, tangy citric fruit, bitter apricot, orange sherbet, grassy. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, sweet tingle in a drying closure. Nice work!
