The aroma is very good good with plenty of peaches and yeast. Its also got lots of malt. The appearance is cloudy white gold with a pink hue. The taste is dryer than I expected and slightly sour with a general fruitiness and peaches. There is also some malt and funk. The palate is average but smooth. Overall I like it but, it falls just short of great.

great aroma with the peach flavor, looks good with the cloudiness of the beer, taste is a bit sour and the rest seems a bit thin. still its worth a try.

From bottle at Bir & Fud, Roma. Cloudy peachy golden with a small head. Complex fruity aroma. Subtle peachy flavours, good bitterness, hints of brettanomyces. Some vanilla woodiness in the finish. Peachy and slightly sour notes develops as the beer warms up. Great and rare.

(Bottle 75 cl) Courtesy of yespr. Very hazy opaque pale golden with a white head. Aroma of fruit and perhaps a litte....Brett? Light-bodied with notes of apricot and perhaps a little coconut. The finish is dry without much bitterness. 290508

Bottle, thanks Jeremy & Mabel! Hazy orange, white head. Nose is big peach, a bit of bretty lemon pith. Flavor is peach, very light malt, slight fruity acidity. A wheat beer with a very nice peach/acid component.

[1615-20080816] 1pt9.4floz bottle. Ready-to-eat peaches and light yeast aroma. Hazy, light brown orange body with a medium-lasting creamy white head. Lightly yeasty aroma is mostly nicely ripened peaches with all their bits: juice and skins and pits. Light-medium body. Very unique, I still am unsure if I like it.
(w/ jerc, rudolf)
Overheard: "I thought the drawing was cherries... Angry cherries." - referring to the label of angry-looking peaches

2008-08-16. Hazy pastel yellow-orange with a nice white head that fades. (3+) Nasty sweat socks is my first impression, floating over a lovely sweet syrupy peach character that develops into a lightly funky peach overall. Tart-sour flavour mellows into sweetish fruit, nondescript peaches, very light funky-musty character throughout. Brief hint of bile-like acidity might be imagined but is off-putting regardless. Tart wheat like hints. Average to thin palate. This probably would have come off as more refreshing had it not followed an IPA filled afternoon, but its a bit of an odd-duck regardless. Bottle, Village Beer Merchant, Buffalo

Pours pale yellow into a tulip. Little to no head. Sour peach aromas. Tart thin peach upfront with a spritzy malt finish. Refreshing.
