[bottle @ RBESG 2009, Grand Tasting]
Buttery horseblanket, farmhouse aroma that is a little fruity. Cloudy dark orange under a white ring. Dry and sweet, fruity peach and celery flavour. Light body, elevated carbonation. KimJohansen (10498) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2009
Cloudy orange with a tiny white head. Sour aroma with lacto, brett and peachy notes. Sour flavour with wood, brett, peach and lacto notes. Finished sour. ricke (476) - Malme, SWEDEN - NOV 24, 2009
Golden amber color, hazy. A minimal head dissipates immediately.
The smell is ofmalts, caramel, wood, fruitiness with an obvious yet restrained peachy character. The alcohol is present and gives the smell a sweet liqueur-like quality.
The flavor is of sweet caramel maltiness and fruity aromas. More sweet peaches than in the smell, but still not very powerful. The peaches are genuine rather than candy-like. Vanilla and grass. Some dusty funky notes and oak. The sweetness is accompanied by a gentle tartness. The finish is really dry with plenty of alcohol and tart peaches.
Medium body, smooth texture with a dry finish.
A good beer. At 14% ABV, the alcohol is really well hidden and integrated with the flavors and aromas.

Bottle… October ’09 O-Town Throwdown… Lightly hazed amber ale with a fizzy white head. The nose is all about funkiness – sweaty sock – vanilla and wood. Full-bodied with kicked-back carbonation. The flavor is tart, fruity and a touch boozy. Fruity, tangy finish… then it dries way out. Bottle provided by Beerlando ! daknole (11048) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 29, 2009
Dark orange pour. Vinegar, stone fruit, and woody aroma. Flavor is sour with peaches, vinegar and maybe some tart cherries. harrisoni (19559) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2009
Bottle at RBESG09 Grand tasting, Sheffield. Cloudy copper. Belgian lambic peach clone. Some lemon. It’s pretty good, but clearly not Belgian. OK, bit too carbonated.. cgarvieuk (26421) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 23, 2009
Bottle at Chris- Pre 2009 GBBF... Hazy copper ... very barnyard nose ... woody little peach ... some sourness... Ok but not for me.
