Sample at the brewpub. Slightly hazy orange-amber color with a medium off-white head that dissipates gradually to an outer ring. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Fruity aroma with malt and yeast notes. Light to medium body with flavors of caramel malt, peaches and yeast. The finish is reminiscent of a fuzzy navel with an earthy yeast aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
3oz on tap at the brewpub. Mostly hazy orange amber color. Minimal ring of white head. Holy shit... Such massive fruit in this. Huge apricot, tastes like they added a lot of apricot / mango to this. Would be surprised if no fruit was added to this. Pretty fruity and flavorful. Moderate sweet taste, kind of tangy. Minimal bitter. Medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp light soft, lighter carbonation. Light slick finish. Pretty impressively fruity wheat ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On cask drawn during Friday pre-GTMW festival at the Vintage brewpub in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a hazy orange amber colored brew with a fast dissipating off-white head that leave behind a thin white ring and no lacing. Aroma of both peach and Belgian yeast, multi-grain malt, and a hint of orange zest. Taste is medium to full bodied, soft carbonation, smooth texture with flavors of a balanced peach and Belgian yeast flavor. Allow this one to warm up a little and more tropical fruit comes through. Finish has a slight medicinal peach aftertaste then a mild banana/peach aftertaste.

On tap (source)
The last pair of samples were two new beers that weren’t available on the draft list which I assume means they were very fresh. This one was a nice Belgian that I wish I would have more than a sample of. Meeting the description nearly to the tee anyone near Madison should get this while it is on.
Aroma / Appearance - The honey bronze / coppery mixture had wisps of soft head and a slimy slinky lacing. Ripe peaches, honey, and other aspects give this a tropical feel in addition to its Belgian style roots.
Flavor / Palate - Peaches, cotton candy, and sun tea with a heavy dose of lemons permeate every corner of the palate. The alcohol is easy at first but grows over time to stick in the throat. The chewy mouthfeel is like a melted Twix bar dipped in sprinkles of fruity crumbs. Just thinking about this one makes me want to trade for a growler.
