Bomber poured a hazy peach with a lingering ring of ivory foam. Aromas of biscuit, horseblanket, peach and light honey. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of peach, straw and barnyuard funk with a crisp dry finish. stumpyiliz (220) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 28, 2012
A solid second to the Clutch they released last year. Young bretts mixed with peach juice equals awesomeness!! Young brett beers are not only being highlighted at New Belgium but also at Crooked Stave (hit up the WWBI - Unbelieveabe).
I feel this show cases how bretts can help accent and influence a beer in its early stages. I am excited to see how it does with proper aging in a year or two. I believe it will be peach-tastic!! But you can’t age peach beers forever, I’d say two to three years max before the fruit starts to let go. AxlLives (288) - Maryland, USA - AUG 28, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2012 22 oz bottle - pours very clear, golden color with white, bubbly head, a lot like draft macro or champagne. Nice sweet and sour aromas going on, changing and morphing, peachy fer sure, but also some good yeasty, Brady notes. Reminds me of Geuze with some brett. Soapy tartness. Lighter bodied with some good fruit, tartness, ending with a dry, hoppy, spicy finish. Long finish that gets airier with fruit as it lingers. A bit of alcohol apparent at 9.6%, but nothing to cry about. That’s a good reminder that while it’s definitely a nice beer to enjoy on the porch or patio, it’s not meant to be a pounder! I’d enjoy again. thomas15 (694) - Alabama, USA - AUG 27, 2012
Smells like a peach flavored dirty hippie. Earthy with peach. Kind of all over the place. Honey colored with quickly disappearing head that remains at the edges. This beer is super all over the place. I feel like I would love it if I still was a smoker. Peach sweetness, lemon, low on the funk for sure but it is there on the back end. The flavors compete instead of compliment. Kind of a bummer. Nikiel (879) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 27, 2012
Bottle with Carla from Belmont Station. Pours a clear gold with fine white foam. Smells slightly fuzzy of peach juice, light hopping and a hint of alcohol. Tastes juicy of peaches with lots of sweetness and just a hint of alcohol.

Pour on tap at Art and Ale festival, clear red with white head, aroma brought notes of lots of peach, sweet vanilla, some odd caramel notes, hints of a tart fruity lemony notes, but it gives off this odd sweet funky note. Taste is more of the same, some booze, peach, some off fruity notes with a very sweet vanilla and molasses, finishing sweet. Just odd. Steve_0 (3818) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Bottle at home shared with my dad. Poured a golden peach color with a small white head that seems to linger. Good lacing. Somewhat funky, tangy, light peach, lemon peel, biscuit, and spice in the aroma. Taste is much the same, lightly tart, yeast, peach, clove, fruity, somewhat banana, and biscuit ending lightly spicy. Medium/sticky mouthfeel with great carbonation. The alcohol is hidden very well, and it becomes fruitier and spicier the more it warms up. Pretty nice and I kind of dig it.

Bomber from the local store. Real thin head, nice gold color. You can smell the fruit and brett well. There are a lot of subtle flavors upfront: peach, grits, malt, slight lemon and molasses. It all finishes off with a strong brett flavor; nice and dry. As another poster brought up Brett Beer, this beer finishes fairly similar. I personally love the brett. Above average beer here. boFNjackson (4230) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Tap @ The BeerMongers... Mourned pale orange with a thin head. Nose had some nice peach notes and sweetness. Thick body, which was most of the evidence of the higher abv, otherwise no big noticeabl alcohol taste for the strength. Tasted of peaches, but not too powerful, sweetness and grain husks, probably from some corn. Nice drinking, and very versatile. Hint of yeast spice and musk, but Neely funky. Should be interesting how it will evolve. cubs (10740) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Bottle @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Foco. At first, I thought this was called Peach Porch Monkey and I recalled the whole Clerks II scene before realizing the real name. Whoops. Pours a bit hazy, golden orange appearance with a white head that dissipates quickly. I think that I’m just not a fan of the strain of Brett that New Belgium uses or I just get their Bretted beers too young because this has the same rotten fruit smell that I got in their creatively titled Brett Beer. Old peach pit, coconut, vanilla, lightly woody/herbal, light veggie/garbage aroma. Slightly chewy/biscuity, grassy/herbal/woody/veggie, apple/lemon, dull peach, vanilla flavor. The booze comes on a bit rough late as well. There’s a slight tartness going on but it tastes underdeveloped and not all that drinkable. Of course, my opinion on Brett Beer varied quite a bit from other opinions, so I guess maybe I’ll just have a lower rating again.
