Moving over an old review.
Thanks to whoever brought this one to the Hill Farmstead CW pre share.
A - Pours a hazy golden peach color with a nice one finger tall white head, dissipating down to a light film, leaving small trails of lace on the glass.
S - Smells of fresh peaches, mild funk, woody oak, lactic sourness, some basement must and a bit of sweet pale malt. Lots of funky peaches, love it.
T - Starts off with fresh picked ripe peaches slowly giving way to oak tannins, basement must, light funk, greek yogurt, white wine and a bit of sweetness from the malt. Finish is quite dry, lingering long after the finish. Lots of flavor, just with the peaches came through a bit more.
M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, tart feel with a nice dry ending. Quite easy drinking all things considered.
O - This was an awesome peach sour. It was going up against a bunch of other Peach and Stone Fruit sours and really held its own, it was in my top three. I would love to have this again in the future.
750 mL bottle. Clear golden with a small white head. Smells of stone fruit, oak, and some sour apples. Tastes of stone fruit, but I wouldn’t have confidently said peaches, hefty oak, caramel and lightly grainy flavors. Strong sourness, but not overpowering. Medium body with medium carbonation. Golden sour with a hint of stone fruit at this point, but it’s still pretty tasty. biggsbowler (629) - Port St. Lucie, Florida, USA - FEB 27, 2017

RBSG. Pours a cloudy yellow color with a medium white head. A big oak and fruity nose. Soft peaches, oak, sour sawdust, some citrus, fresh floral elements. The overall base is sweet peaches. Quite good. BuckeyeBoy (8500) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 23, 2015
750ml bottle thanks to Jer. Pours out a hazy straw topped with a small white head. Nose is great ripe peach sweetness some nice tartness yeast and oak barrel notes. Taste is more of the ripe peachy sweetness and the tart funk. hayduke (5677) - Eureka, California, USA - JUN 23, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2015 The was another bottle from the vertical Veritas tasting at the RBSG thanks to Jared. It showed up in the glass a gold color with white head. Nose is full of stuff, with fermented peach, and a lot of essences of funk. I use funk to describe those various aromas and flavors from wild ales that I love but cannot identify. Medium in body. The flavor here is just as complex and I think I can identify sour peach, some wood, and again the melange of funk Finishes tart and tasty. Another excellent beer from this series.

Cloudy golden with a medium sized off-white head, good lacing. Aroma is tart and fruity. Flavors are tart, fruity and bright citrus
750mL bottle, pours a cloudy golden blonde with a small white head. Aroma is very complex, with loads of tart peaches, barnyard funk, and low acidity. Flavour is along the same lines, with loads of tart peaches, loads of funk, and low acidity and vinegar. Finishes oaky, tart and woody. An excellent blend. djd07 (15547) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Bottle thanks to Jared, shared at RBSG Grand tasting. Pours a hazy gold with small frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is peach, oak, funk. Medium mouth, funky, wood, peach, tart, very nice. Ibrew2or3 (8828) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Woodshed 3.0! Sample courtesy of Norm (don’t move away Norm, please). Bottle pours with a slightly hazy gold body that has a big bubbled white head. The aroma offers up some funky notes, lemon and then a mix of peach and funky yeastiness. The taste is funky and tart and acidic with notes of peach and tannin tart peach skins. The funky yeast notes run amuck here pulling along tartness and a big acidic to vinegar sensation. This is a bit restrained from being out right puckering, which agrees with my palate.

Bottle shared by Ignace at the Hopduvel. Muddy pour. Peachy aroma, very light acetic notes, a lot of buttery oak. Taste is tart, mildly acetic, fruity, peachy finish. Palate is light-med bodied with low carbonation. I hope this bottle wasn’t in good shape because it would be quite disappointing.
