2014 Vintage 750ml Bottle - Juicy peaches and apricots upfront, nice mildly sour acidity and a crisp dry finish. Sunshine in the bottle, one of my favorite sours!

Bottle split with vin and Linh. Pours a bright orange with thin white lacing brimming my glass. Aroma is funky Brett, chlorine and fresh peaches. Incredible. Mouthfeel is slightly puckering with notes of sour, funky peaches, tart fruit, and a dry finish.

Wow. Only 8 ratings. A friend brought this over following a trade with a west coast partner. Poured at room temp into a tulip

A - 1/4 finger on a vigorous pour. This is a deep orange beer with plenty of clouds and some yellow in here.

S - Orange Peels are very pleasant. Lots of peach juice, sour and tart scents with lavender and honey. VERY enjoyable.

T - Sour is right out of the gate BOOM. Peaches are next and add a tart and pucker that’s just like eating a peach with the fuzzy left on. Lemons, floral and some oak comes through at the end.

M - 50/50 bubbles on a mouth swish. It’s a very dry beer with great floral lingering.

O - UTTERLY DELICIOUS. I need many more of these NOW.

2013 vintage. 750ml white waxed bottle into a HF over sized wine glass. A - Pours a hazy...well its a peach colored body. An initial fingers worth of soapy foam with large bubbles forms but settles into some edging pretty quickly. Decent lacing with minimal retention. The peach color though, man does it look good. S - Super funky brettanomyces and lactic acid followed by over ripe peach juice. There is a subtle, almost spicy vanilla thing that I get on the very end that I would imagine is coming from the barrels. T - That distinct brett funk followed by a wave of lactic acid twang. This goes head to head with sweet peach juice and a touch of oak. Lightly sour with a long lasting juiciness. This is a very drinkable beer and something that is perfect for the warmer months. Mouth feel is crisp and lively while maintaining a medium body. O - This beer is excellent. Truly one of the best American Wilds I have had the privilege of trying. I wish I had it a bit fresher as the peaches are sort of playing second fiddle to the critters, but god damn is this a tasty beer!

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.

kbutler1 (1356) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 3, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2012 Bottle. Pours a deep color amber orange color with a slight collared white head. Slightly cloudy. Nice aroma, a little on the sweet side but a nice peach note along with some funkiness. More on the acidic side than true european funk. Light/medium mouthfeel. Nice sweet peach notes with a nice mild sourness. A slight bitterness in the end but very mild. I could see this getting more sour with some age. This is a very solid beer but for sure not as deep and extreme as the belgian styles but for a US version it is really good. Glad I grabbed a few bottles to let this develop more. Thought this beer was extremely well done.

deyholla (7017) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 16, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2013 Bottle thanks to westmeister! Pours a cloudy peach gold with a white head that starts at the edges and dissipates completely. Aroma is full of peach with a light tartness and a nice earthy funk note. Flavor starts a really nice juicy peach note with a growing tartness and a hint of funk.

Bottle shared by deyholla thanks Derick . So far this is the star of the night. I am all stuffed up and it still smells fantastic. Peach and tartness just fantastic.

Bottle courtesy of deyholla. Pours hazy orange, bordering on garnet. Very little head, especially by a couple of minutes in. Good carbonation, but soft. Nose: wow. Just barrels and barrels of ripe peach, sweetened vinegar, candied citrus. More peach in a big way on the tongue, massive tartness and barnyard-ish funk. This was right in the middle of an epic tasting, and it still stands out as the highlight. Exceptional.
