A month or so ago, I went to Cranbury Buy Rite and they were having a sale on sours. Initially, I didn’t have this one in my basket, but it came highly recommended, so I picked it up.
Style: Saison/Farmhouse Ale
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “This award-winning version of our Oak Aged Seizoen Bretta is refermented with 1.5 lbs/gal of juicy ripe peaches from the Hood River Valley for several months before blending the aged beer with some young beer and fresh brettanomyces yeast, providing natural carbonation, added dryness and funky complexity to the beer.”
Random: This beer comes in at 15 IBUs.
The beer poured with a half a finger of pure white head. It was quite wispy. It dissipated quickly, leaving no lacing on the glass, but a small white crown on top of the body. The body was a slightly cloudy, white orange color. There were no floaties visible and a moderate amount of carbonation visible. The nose had a decent amount of funk with white wine grape, aged peach and a touch of horse blanket. The taste started with sour, unripe peach and had a little bit of sweetness from the peach. Oak definitely came through with a touch of vanilla. Brett was present, but not overwhelming. It gave a decent amount of funk, but definitely on the lighter side. The alcohol was insanely well hidden. It had moderate to high carbonation and a quick finish. This beer was outstanding and I would definitely have it again. I highly recommend this one.
