Bottle at home. Pours cloudy light golden orange, light fizzy white head. Stewed apricot in the nose, peach stone, wheat and whey, some sweet yoghurt. Light body, almost watery, nice light carbonation, slightly sour and quite a dry and citrussy finish. Tastes a bit bland but a great thirst quencher overall.

Hazy pale yellow pour with a tinge of peach. Slight white head. Sour peach nose. Soft fruit. Slightly sweet. Slightly funky finish. Slightly tart. Delicate and refreshing. djd07 (15293) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 26, 2015
Batch 1 bottle thanks to Aaron. Pours a cloudy orange with small paperthin white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong peach, funk, and oak. Thin mouthfeel with strong peaches, brett, nice tartness, really enjoyed this.
Batch 2 bottle thanks to Aaron. Pours a cloudy orange with frothy medium white head that lasts. The aroma is strong peach and brett. Much more fruit forward, and nice tartness, really impressive. DedicatedToFun (4000) - Santa Monica, California, USA - MAR 21, 2015

Poured from bottle to glass. Golden hue with fizzy white head that settled. Aroma is peach, apricot, lactic, straw. Mouthfeel is great with a light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry sweet with a tart following. Overall this brew is great.

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2015 Smells and tastes like awesome peaches. This is an absolutely fantastic sour and one of the best I?ve had. Medium body, medium to high sharp carbonation, and slight foam. luttonm (6565) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 9, 2015
Huge thanks to Prufrockstar for sharing this bottle. Peaches and vanilla on the aroma, also quite funky. This transition to the medium, quite fruity body. We kind of settled on white chocolate as the synthesis of flavors we were trying to figure out. Some souring, plenty of peppery notes on backend. Tasty treat.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2015 Bottle split with friends. Appearance: Head lasts only for a second. Cloudy orange in the glass. Aroma is odd - peach-flavored laffy taffy and bubblegum. Some funk and oak for sure, but what comes through behind that is peach flavored laffy taffy bubblegum. Taste brings vanilla, more laffy taffy, and now that Matt mentions it, cookies and cream Hershey’s white chocolate. Not at all what I expected. Sweeter than anticipated. There’s tartness for sure, and some funk to boot, but mostly what comes across behind that is a lot of vanilla and sweetness. Peaches and cream. Palate: light body, soft carbonation, slick texture. Overall: I may sit on a bottle. Or I may not. I’ve been wanting this for a long time. Glad to have had it. Not something I expect I’ll crave, but I’ll repeat it down the road.

Having repeated this now a few times, it’s worthy of a bump, from 8/3/8/4/15 to 8/4/8/4/16.
Prufrock brought this rare gem back from Portland -- thank you for giving me the chance to try it. Light orange pour, modest white head. At first the nose brings on a powerful funk, but that is quickly replaced by very sweet artificial candy flavors. We struggled for a bit to pick them out; candidates include laffy taffy, spree, Haribo gummy peaches for the fruit; fruity bubble gum; white chocolate or in particular cookies-and-cream bar. The flavor is sweet-tart, very accessible with ample peach sweetness rather than peach-skin tartness. Some interesting tannic elements and modest overall acidity. It’s a good beer, and enjoyable to drink, but this batch is not a world-beater, and it leaves me wondering how this could be a 99th percentile sour. berntholer (1617) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - DEC 31, 2014
