Sour Belgian w/ Peaches
Pêche Mode is brewed with 700 lbs of peaches from Matt’s orchard in Odell. Red Haven and Elberta peaches from the 2011 season were puréed and added to a three-week old strong Belgian ale along with the same Brettanomyces culture used in both Krieks. This particular beer wasn’t aged as long as the Krieks, so the Brett character is not as tart and assertive. The peach aroma comes through nicely, providing a sweetness alongside the slight sourness provided by the Brett. “Golly it’s peachy!”

I just found this! I had no idea that it even existed until last weekend, and it’s been on my mind a lot this week. I’m looking forward to a little bit of funk and tonight is a great evening to enjoy something a bit sour. - Tangy, funky peaches erupt from the bottle as soon as I crack the cap and immediately set my mouth watering. I tip the bottle and pour, the almond-hued, foamy head rising only slightly above a hazy brew, marmalade in color. The fragrance is redolent...evocative, and I can’t wait to taste it. - The experience is anticipated...the sour taste biting at the small edges of my mouth, searing its way from my lips to my jaw, a flash of moisture under my tongue. As I let it settle, the sweetness from the peaches is delightful; a spicy dough with a bitter funk following the swallow. The light body is lively with sufficient carbonation to carry the flavors without projecting like a soda...it so easily could have been too much. - The brightness of the fruit is tantalizing rather than cloying and the Brett is represented well in the flavor. The earthy tones in the yeast mute the sweetness of the fruit, taming the tartness without killing it altogether. - A nice blend of flavors delivered in a mouth-watering experience with a finish that has convinced me to spend the money on at least one more bottle to share with friends. Delightful!

Bottle, love the name! Light amber with an off white head that gradually settles down. Light musty farmhouse mixed with peaches, light apricot and pear, mild presence, moderate carbonation and mild body, easy to drink.

bottle, a vinegar bomb, tons of peach flavors, then tons of vinegar. Overwhelming vinegar, too bad.

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2015 Bottle - Pours orange white head -nose/taste of peach, oak, funky peach pit - nose is a little off but taste is spot on - medium body. Tasty. This bottle must be getting better given the earlier ratings.

Hazy muddled orange. Nose of peach and apricot, some musty funk. Taste follows...slightly chewy texture with nice peach flavors. Not very sour, but nice funk to it. Solid.

375 picked up at Bier Thirty for a VERY pricey $15.... Double Mnt is pretty proud of this one. Pours a mostly clear glowing orange with a decent white head... Very tart peach on the nose and really puckery fermented out peach essence flavor... Brett becomes much more present as it warms up... Peach flavor is mellow but it tastes real and not artificial at all. Very good peach sour... Expensive, but I will have to pick up a couple more just to have around.

Bottle at Franks, pours Amber with tiny white head. Aroma is caramel malt, wheat, and other slightly peachy fruit funk. Flavor is unbalanced with sticky tartness, vinegars, and butt. The 700 pounds of peaches should have been utilized differently if this was the end result.

Spring cleaning notes. Tap at pub pours out a amber topped with a small white head. Nose is light peach, caramel sweetness, and some vinegar. Taste is still a touch of peach juice, some sweetness, and a good amount of pucker.

mcberko (11875) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 22, 2012
Sampled on tap at PIB, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast and light fruits. Flavour of light fruits, booze, Belgian yeast - ABV is well-hidden - seems unnecessarily high though as the flavour is quite bland. Pretty light-bodied and thin for 8%. Not the most complex either. Decent.

Draft at collins. Pours a clear medium amber with golden brown highlights. Loose grayish foam. Mild peach and caramel nose with a little bit of funky sharp white vinegar. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Messy tart finish. Not what they were aiming for in the ferment.
