What the brewers say

“A golden sour beer fermented with Brettanomyces yeast and Lactobacillus bacteria. Aged in oak barrels with peaches, cinnamon, and vanilla beans. This beer reminds us of a freshly baked peach cobbler.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Wonderfully rounded mix of fruit and spice with a touch of freshly toasted blueberry bagel. Ripe berry and rich oak notes as it warms.”

Flavor: “Big puckering sour followed by a nice boysenberry flavor. Finished with a nice tart and dry finish. The oak adds a nice complexity without overpowering it. The flavors blend and meld in a sophisticated yet enticing way.”

Overall: “On the very acidic side but has a lovely tart berry flavor. Great blend and flow of flavors with just a touch of oak. It’s a bright, complex, and distinct beer with a tartness that will please most acid heads.”
