12oz bottle pours out a light hazy yellow topped with a long lasting soap head. Aroma peach, barrel, Brett, and some spice. Taste as the aroma with a nice sour bite.

Hazy yellow orange in color... Aroma is citrus, acidic tartness.... Flavor is intensely sour, hard to delineate any peach notes due to the tartness and sour citrus that dominates the flavor.... Enjoyable nonetheless...

Bottle at home with my wife, courtesy of Felipe. Thanks man!! Pour is clear orange with a small white head that quickly dissipated. Peachy, apricots, oak, somewhat bretty, lactic, light vanilla, herbal, a touch funky, and medicinal aroma. Taste is tart peaches, lacto, pineapple, band-aid, light vinegar, green apples, pears, and wood with a medium sour finish. Light body with medium carbonation. I love peach sours and this one doesnt disappoint.

Bottle from HS. Aroma was of fresh peaches and Brett. Flavor was much less, muted peach, but the sour blond funk really comes through. Carbonation was great, and I could drink this one all day. Not sweet at all, which reminded me of Peche N Brett...but, not the same. I agree with bytemesis...the buttery popcorn thing doesn't seem to be diacetyl, maybe peaches, but it's difficult to tell. Very good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle via trade with brian, keith, joe and bill. Pours clearish gold with light head. Aroma is floral funky brett and peach nectar. Taste is ultra tart peach sourness, sweet tart candy, brett, barrel, and more skunk funk. Medium body. Puckery. This is the shit.

Thanks to Mad Mike for the share. The beer is fairly hazy and light apricot hued with a small head. Both the aroma and flavor bring peaches, mustiness, peach skins, earthy qualities. I really enjoyed this. Definitely a unique brew. Lots of fleshy peach skins and juicy character. Present sourness and tartness but also accessible and drinkable, particularly if you enjoy peaches.

Very nicely done blonde sour, peaches not overwhelming Great funky aroma from the brett. Wish I could get this regular. Pleasant balance tart sweet. Highly recommend

Bottle. Pour a much deeper hue than I expected; reddish amber with a small off-white head that mostly dissipates, leaving a ring that nevertheless laces rather well. Aroma is that beautiful woody, tart, fruity, vinaceous smell of a good sour. I dont get peach per se, but what I get I like. Flavor is lightly sweet, light to medium tart, just a touch of funk, buttery peaches, wood, but minimal associated astringence. Semi-dry finish. Medium body, champagnelike carbonation, a bit creamy in the mouth. Quite the tasty beer. I definitely get the butter notes that popery mentions, but not sure if it is diacetyl or just peaches; I dont get anything off in the finish.

Very nice sour blonde with some typical brett flavors and a nice bit of peach fruitiness.

popery (2141) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 12, 2013
Pours a darkened yellow verging on orange. Quite hazy. Small white head. the aroma is funk, peaches and buttered popcorn. It smells like a rather nice fruit sour with a Significant diacetyl problem. This is the third time that Ive tried this beer, all at different places, and Im gotten the same buttered popcorn note every time. Its a shame because the fruit and sour/funk are pretty good. The taste is relatively dry with some good fruit flavor and medium sourness, but it cant escape that buttery flavor. In particular, the finish has an unfortunate sour butter quality to it. Feel is light and pretty good. Im just disappointed in this one. Theres a good sour in there, but its overshadowed by that fake butter flavor.
