COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
(Previous labeled Peach Lambic). We first began experimenting with Belgian-style ales in 2006, and fresh, whole peaches were selected as one of the first fruits to add to the sour beer that we had fermented for over eight months in white oak barrels. We use 7,000 pounds of fresh Indiana peaches from Huber’s Orchard and Winery in Starlight, Indiana, destoning the peach pits by hand before adding to the barrels. Peach is a fruited ale with gold and straw colors that shine upon pouring, and zesty amounts of carbonation. Fresh peach aromas meld with floral and wine-like notes. Wonderful peach flavors follow in the taste, accompanied by refreshing tartness with a dry finish and mouth-watering tanginess.

superspak (6363) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - FEB 18, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2018 750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 12/17/2017. Labeled at 6.4%. Pours moderately hazy golden amber color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin lace cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big juicy/tart/tangy peaches, fruit skin/pits, almond, apricot, pear, lemon, lime, green apple, melon, white grape/wine, hay, straw, grass, vanilla, yogurt, oak, wheat, cracker, and white bread; with lighter notes of leather, musty/lacto funk, and yeast/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, peaches, oak barrels, and moderately wheat/pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big juicy/tart/tangy peaches, fruit skin/pits, almond, apricot, pear, lemon, lime, green apple, melon, white grape/wine, hay, straw, grass, vanilla, yogurt, oak, wheat, cracker, and white bread; with lighter notes of leather, musty/lacto funk, and yeast/oak earthiness. Light-moderate fruity/lactic tartness, fruit tang, and light yeast/oak tannin spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart/tangy peaches, fruit skin/pits, almond, apricot, pear, lemon, lime, green apple, melon, white grape/wine, hay, straw, grass, vanilla, yogurt, oak, wheat, cracker, white bread, light leather/funk, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, peaches, oak barrels, and moderately wheat/pale malt flavors; with an awesome malt/tartness and tangy fruit balance; with zero puckering flavors after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from tartness, tangy fruit, and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, bready/grainy/acidic/tangy, and lightly tannic balanced mouthfeel that is fantastic. Zero warming alcohol for 6.4%. Overall this is a fantastic American fruit lambic! All around outstanding complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, peaches, oak barrels, and moderately wheat/pale malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and pretty refreshing to drink wit hthe modestly acidic/tangy/drying finish, not overly lactic. Super jammy peaches with balanced Brett/Lacto complexity; great oak barrel presence and malt balance. A highly enjoyable offering and spot on style example.

Around 10 year ol bottle shared by alexsdad06 pour hazy dark gold with thin white head. Seems under carbonated. Nose large fruit but I wouldn't have pegged it as peach, light powder, light funk, floral. Taste sharp acidic up front, funk, then some floral. Mid palate watered down flavors but thick mouth feel. Light peach in finish. Not my favorite.

jbruner (5578) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 1, 2017
Pours a hazy golden yellow from the bottle with fluffy white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of big funky cheese notes, like old parmesan, with a hint of oak and acidity. Taste follows, funky cheese, isovaleric or caproic acid, with a mild acidity and oaky sweetness, no fruit to speak of. Meh, it's gone south.

tmoreau (4805) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 19, 2017
Shared 750 ml. bottle poured to snifters showing a hazed, orangey color, with a decent layer of white froth, and spots of lacing. The nose was subtle yeast, slight cheese, a hint of barrel/oak, with pit & peach. Light to medium bodied, with good carbonation, the taste was similar, with tartness & tanginess, and a dry finish. Anything peach works for me.

jandd1983 (4720) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - JUL 7, 2017
Bottle a few months back. It poured a golden color with a white head. The aroma was of peach, florals and some tartness. The taste was similar to the aroma with more peaches, florals, tartness, some funkiness and a hint of wood. It had medium carbonation with a nice funky aftertaste. Very good.
