UPDATED: JUL 21, 2019 Head gone in seconds, yellow-golden beer. Sweeter tha the Little Peach, but again clearl peach, but with a surprising smokey-near peaty and sherry aroma. Again sherry in the flavour, sweet peaches, Amontillado; finish has some lactic acid and fruitacids, more tart. Burning MF, medium bodied, bit oily. Nice sherry touches.

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2019 Bottled thanks to Joe. It pours lightly hazy orange with a snall dissipating white head. The aroma is fresh, bright, apricot, peachy, persimmon, light vanilla, oak, sweet fruit action, fruit cocktail, funk and tang. The taste is crisp, dry, tart, puckering, zingy, persimmon, peach, apricot, minerals, sherbert, sour candy, bit of funk, must and a touch of acidity with a drying finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Bright and zingy. Moreish. Fun stuff. JaBier (10342) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAY 7, 2019

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2019 Bottle shared at CB. Pours a hazy straw gold with a finger of spritzy white foam that lingers. Big peach forward nose with stone fruit, apricot and honeydew melon aromas as it warms up. Tart on the palate with peachy acidity and oak. Smooth with a spritzy, tart lingering note that lingers on the finish. Very nice.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2019 Bottle from the Tillamook tasting room. Hugely aromatic nose, just like a freshly peeled white peach, gentle and lovely, with mild funk. Hazy light dirty blond color. Tart and fresh peach, then it goes suddenly sweet, from a hit of vinegar to sweet peach. Thin body, with light astringency. Nice stuff, with a very full and interesting aroma. But flavors are a bit mild and not overly complex. Still, this is another amazing beer from De Grade. KyotoLefty (13281) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 5, 2019
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2019 Bomber. Huge peach fuzz nose, just really like sniffing a fresh, ripe peach. Some notes of the stone as well. Juicy peach flavor, dry and sour, awesome mild smooth balance with just impeccable peachiness. Wonderful. SHIG (6345) - Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2018
Bottle: Poured a hazy yellow white edges and head. Aroma is pungent funky peach. Taste is super tart peach. Tangled the tongue with sourness. PowY (2836) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - SEP 21, 2018
750 ml bottle at 6.9% ABV at Sanders place, shared by Werckmeister, many thanks! Pours a hazy light golden with a white head. Aroma of musty funk, pukeish with peach, green apples and mild wood. At first smell after opening the bottle a little mellow but became pretty good after some minutes. Light to medium body with an average carbonation, a medium to medium-heavy sourness and a light tartness. Flavor of unripe peach, apricots, sour berries, mild oak. Finishes dry with some residual sourness. Crisp and fresh with a dominating sourness while the peaches and the oak are in the background. Pretty good!

(750ml bottle from Koelschip, b1 or b2? - Cognac barrels anyway, May 9/18 w/ inbreak) Pours moderately hazy dark orange with a small fading white head. Aroma is intense fresh peach, peach skin, soft to moderate cognac and white grapes, fruit stones, soft funk, some oak. Flavour is fresh tart peaches, white grapes, zippy lemony lactic acid, bare hint of acetic, peach skin, soft tannin, cognac hints, a touch of vanilla? Bit of hay but funk is light. Long high tart peachy finish. Medium body with some effervescent carbonation. Really nice fruited American sour! The peach is character is top notch but the cognac barrels make it pop. Acidity is pretty high but the fruit addition matches it and keeps it in check. Lovely.
