COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired from a conversation with good friend and editor of the Great Lakes Brewing News, Bill Metzger, Brewmaster Steve blended a Belgian Amber Ale with 120# of Michigan Harmony peaches from Husteds Farm Market in a merlot cask. 4 wild yeast fermentations later and yet another cask aging results in an exquisite sour peach ale.

Bottle via trade from backlog notes. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have tart/sour peach, vinous, oak, acetic sour, funk, I didn’t realize that it was 14%, pretty good.

Very nice peach character neutralized by a smidge too much acidity. Good beer but falls short of awesome because of the tartness.

Bottle Thanks Maltzilla - Pour amber w/ white head. Peaches, lemons, and tartness in the nose. Very acidic with peaches and a little vinegar. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Enjoyed at GTMW 2012. Pours an amber gold with a thick cream head. Smells of oranges and spice. Sour orange cream flavor with a citrus finish.

On tap at GTMW, described by the dude pouring as a "flavor bomb" - Pours amber with small tan bubbles. Tons of peach on the nose--light and fruity--though a little plastic works its way into the funk. Taste is dry and light fruit with a bit of brett. Sweet finish, with fruit juice and real light citrus funk. Smooth and slick. Not my favorite, but it was interesting.

Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Clear orange-red with a small, creamy, white head. Aroma has marzipan, a vanilla touch, light cellar, lots of peach, mild tartness. Medium carbonation, dry and light creamy palate. Good tart flavour, light fruity, apples, some pear sweetness, light marzipan, a hint of apricot and a good dose of peach. Light oakiness. Really delicious.

Silphium (3224) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - NOV 30, 2010
On tap at HopCat, Grand Rapids. Fiery orange-red body, thin ring of off-white carbonation. Tart, sour nose, fruity and woody, tannic, with vinaigrette notes. Tart, funky, tannic body with peach and wood, finishing wheaty with some biscuit notes. Very good.
