4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Rate based on second bottle I had (first wasn’t as fruit forward or creamy). Slow gush on opening. Pours a yellowish, light orange with a thin frothed head. Nose is sticky, prickly fruit full of apricot and peach notes and a tiny bit of yogurt. Creamy mouth feel. Beer drinks softly with no real alcohol presence to speak of and finishes with some bitter fruit skin. Creepy girl on the label gets a bit cuter when you get to the end of the bottle.

Huge thanks to Prufrockstar for sharing this bottle. Peaches and vanilla on the aroma, also quite funky. This transition to the medium, quite fruity body. We kind of settled on white chocolate as the synthesis of flavors we were trying to figure out. Some souring, plenty of peppery notes on backend. Tasty treat.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle split with friends. Appearance: Head lasts only for a second. Cloudy orange in the glass. Aroma is odd - peach-flavored laffy taffy and bubblegum. Some funk and oak for sure, but what comes through behind that is peach flavored laffy taffy bubblegum. Taste brings vanilla, more laffy taffy, and now that Matt mentions it, cookies and cream Hershey’s white chocolate. Not at all what I expected. Sweeter than anticipated. There’s tartness for sure, and some funk to boot, but mostly what comes across behind that is a lot of vanilla and sweetness. Peaches and cream. Palate: light body, soft carbonation, slick texture. Overall: I may sit on a bottle. Or I may not. I’ve been wanting this for a long time. Glad to have had it. Not something I expect I’ll crave, but I’ll repeat it down the road.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Prufrock brought this rare gem back from Portland -- thank you for giving me the chance to try it. Light orange pour, modest white head. At first the nose brings on a powerful funk, but that is quickly replaced by very sweet artificial candy flavors. We struggled for a bit to pick them out; candidates include laffy taffy, spree, Haribo gummy peaches for the fruit; fruity bubble gum; white chocolate or in particular cookies-and-cream bar. The flavor is sweet-tart, very accessible with ample peach sweetness rather than peach-skin tartness. Some interesting tannic elements and modest overall acidity. It’s a good beer, and enjoyable to drink, but this batch is not a world-beater, and it leaves me wondering how this could be a 99th percentile sour.

Bottle shared at the RBESG 2014, grand tasting 10/08/2014 Craft Beer Co Clerkenwell. Clouded yellow / straw coloured pour with a thin white head. Aroma is cheesey fruit, lacto sourness, tart acid and funk. Bit of sour milk in the nose as well. Flavour is peach melba, wheat, sour apricot fruit, lacto sour. Goood shit. Palate is semi-sharp, crisp and somewhat wheaty. Tasty.

"Holy hell this is one good brew. Best peach beer ever. Easily. Great mix of ripe juicy peach and stinky cheese. If you told me Cantillon made this I’d believe you. 2012 was a little funkier, 2013 a little fruitier, but with a more than adequate sour aspect. Love it!"
