What the brewers say

“This is a delicate yet complex beer that is bright, dry, acidic, and highly aromatic. While young, it is bursting with peach and tropical fruit flavors. Over time the barnyard flavors associated with the style will begin to develop.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Mild peach note with a light Brett note. Very slight herbal and spice in the background. Lemon and lime notes give way to some Pilsen malt sweetness. Aroma is a bit muted.”

Flavor: “Candy and caramel note up front with a medium sweetness transitioning into a sour-apple note. Citrus notes of lemon and lime plus a touch of peach followed by a pronounced Pilsen malt sweetness and even a hint of toasted malt. Sweet in the start with a drying tart finish and just a touch of funk.”

Overall: “The caramel note that I got up front was surprising given the category. Moderate fruity esters (light plum and lemon) with high carbonation. Tartness is very clean without any off notes from kettle souring or significant Brett funk. A balanced version of the style but could use a bit more Brett complexity, tartness, or something more dynamic to help set it apart.”
