Bottle shared by Jeff, thanks! 10k, dirty 30 and golden birthday. Pours a cloudy with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a great sour peach note with a slight peach-o sweetness backing. Flavor has more of a earthy and sour peach and a bit of acid towards the finish. 9 3 8 3 17

Light brown and hazy. Much like you think a Wild Peach beer would look. Lots of flavor and strongly sour. If you like peaches and sour, this is a great beer. I have a mixed reaction since I dont like peaches or sours.

From notes. Enjoyed at Dougs house for the Epic Peach and Apricot debacle of a tasting that happened on July 9. 500 mL bottle. The pour is a reddish brown color with a thin off white head that rests as a film. The aroma is huge peach. Lots of flesh and tart skins. There is a hint of vanilla, but I love this smell. Its not as tart as I would like, but its still fantastic. The flavor is a little more disappointing. There is a light citrus, and then it turns to a sweet peach. There is a lack of bright sour crispness that I would like to see and its mostly sweet. The mouth feel is a little heavier than I would like it to be, but the carbonation really helps. The aftertaste is lightly tart peaches. This falls off of the tongue very fast. Its not as good as I was hoping for, thats for sure.

At the epic peach/apricot sour tasting. Aroma is a peach, slight tart, funk, sweet. Appearance is red brown, light tan head. Taste is peaches, sour, tart, falls quickly. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light crisp carbonation, peach juice and barrel aftertaste. Overall, this is good not great.

Bottle: The aroma consists of huge peach...equal parts sweet and tart. Theres some mild vanilla and bourbon, but its all about the peach in the nose. It pours a hazy brownish-orange with a orange tinted off-white head that fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of citrus before it all turns to heavy peach...slightly more tart the than sweet. There is some mild lemon, vanilla, and oak in the finish...but peach dominates. Its light-medium bodied with somewhat soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Overall, if you like peaches, youll love this beer. Im not much of a peach fan, but this is still really good.

Probably the most depth in aroma from any peach sour Ive ever had. Deep pungent tropical peach. Over the top peach juiciness. Wow. The gold stand Peche.

Bottle has been aging for a year and a half roughly. Acidic aroma of peach. Pours amber with small amount of off white head. Very thin, unbelievable that this is 7.25%. Very tart peach, lots of oak bourbon barrel starts to come out as it warms up and I get closer to the bottom of the glass. Tons going on that Im nowhere near qualified to explain. But its great, worth the wait.

Hazy mahogany pour with a tall, fluffy tan head that has great retention and leaves nice lacing and some brown floaties and sludge stuck in the head. Aroma is loaded with tart peach, toasted oak, lightly musty funky notes, wet hay, limestone and sweet and tart fruity notes, a hint of caramel, cereal and husky grain. Flavor is juicy tart peach, lots of vanilla laden oak, a little horse blanket, under ripe mulberries, light almond sweetness, light leather, lactic acidity, green woodiness and wet basement. Light body, sort of thin, acidic feel, medium, sharp carbonation. Really good stuff, the best peach character I have ever gotten from a beer and plenty of other good stuff going on.
