bvc (1141) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - JUL 20, 2012
750ml waxed bottle. Rich honey golden with little bit of tight white head. Creamy lacto, turbando sugar, peach, plum, pits, musty peach skin, vanilla, slight acetone on the end. Mellow carbonation and slightly chewy feel. Meaty musty peach, slightly musty/dank, white wine grapes tannins, white wine oak. Little bit of acetone really keeps this from being top tier, but still really glad to have had one.

Thanks to Andy! Smell is mild sour fruit, peach, mild coconut, mango, yeast. The taste is peach, coconut, vanilla, mango. It is dry and crisp. The body is light with active, fine carbonation. Very tasty stuff.

Koelschtrinker (9994) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAR 28, 2014
Mild säuerlicher Pfirsichantrunk. Im Mittelteil gleichen sich Säuerlichkeit und Süße aus, runde natürliche Fruchtnoten. Zum Ende eher bitter als sauer, kurzer Abgang. 11/9/9/7/9/8

illidurit (2050) - Petaluma, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Bottle shared at the January 2014 tasting in Santa Cruz. Vinous and peachy aroma, big lemony citric acid notes. Flavor is sour and citric up front before melting into a delicious sweet peach syrup/candy finish. Awesome.

bursprak (289) - Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 28, 2014
750 ml bottle from a trade.Batch 2 I think. Shared with the missus. Bottle had some small seapage from the cap even though it was waxed. Pours a golden quite clear fluid with a small head that settles fast. Aroma is slight vinegar, lemon and unripe peaches. Aroma is not as tart as expected, nicely balanced with loads of peaches and barnyard funk. Very similar to Fou Foune which I had recently, this might have been a tad better though.

Boutip (4490) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2014
Bottle: Poured a cloudy orangey color ale with a medium size white head with ok retention and some light lacing. Aroma of light fruit notes with some tart notes that are easily discernible. Taste is a mix between some light apricot notes with some tart notes with a light funky finish. Body is somewhat full with good carbonation. I must admit that my expectation were quite high but this seems to lack the complexity I was anticipating.

Bottle @ The HUGE Tasting. Cheers, Bruce! Slightly hazy gold with a small head. Loads of peach and apricot. Orchard fruits. Dirty countryside funk. Mild accents of mandarin. More fruit leather flavors. Perfumed grass. Hints of jasmine. Light body, effervescent. Deft and very tasty. Great.

Bottle shared last night by Mike, thanks for the opportunity! Cloudy golden color with a minimal head. Huge cheesy funky brett aroma with hints of lemon and tart cherries. Huge peach flavor atop a funky earthy tart background. Very nice beer!
