Bottle from Proof. Poured into a Goose Island wine-style glass. Slight haze to this beer. Color is like the skin of a lemon. Yellow/gold with a twinge of straw. Tons of bubbly white head that held about a minute before fading into a thinner head and medium collar. Lots of lacing. Aroma is like dry earth, faint barnyard funk, a healthy amount of peach is noticeable, but not at all overpowering. Taste is delightful: peachy farmhouse goodness. Dry/tart yeast. Earthy/floral hops. Simply divine. Nice high carbonation and medium-low body really make this fun to drink.

Tognetta (803) - So Paulo, BRAZIL - JAN 5, 2017
Amarelo translcido, sem espuma. Aroma de muita uva verde, misto de pssego, seca, lembra muito pr seco. Paladar de leve dulor e adstringncia prevalecente. Das quatro Goose a de menor impacto, no to agressiva quanto a Juliet, mais equilibrada no dulor, mas fica devendo no paladar.

Draft. Pours hazy gold. Aroma lightly of peach, lemon, and some funk. Flavor matches, over a crackery malt base. Nice stuff.

750 ml bottle shared with the wife. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a large fluffy off white head. The aroma and flavor have lightly tart citrus and stone fruit, Brett funk, wood, the wine barrel character is soft, this is a 2013 bottle so the Brett is more of a presence, I have had this a few times before and newer versions show a bit more tart fruit, still very good.

BillWyce (1045) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 1, 2016
2016 release. Pours lightly hazy straw color with a small, thin head that was gone quickly. Sour aroma from the Brett, with a note of white wine. A light note of peach as it warms. Body is a touch lighter than medium, and lightly oily. Dry finish with some astringency. Wine-like flavor that gives way to a sour Brett note at the back. Some sweetness from the peaches up front as it warms some.

Bottle from Red Star. Citrus, peach, Pinot, Brett and grass aroma. Very tart beginning filled with sour mash notes that makes my lips pucker. Finish is brett and yeast with more fruit. Not a whole lot boozy but you know it?s there. Some malt too.
