Inspired from a conversation with good friend and editor of the Great Lakes Brewing News, Bill Metzger, Brewmaster Steve blended a Belgian Amber Ale with 120# of Michigan Harmony peaches from Husteds Farm Market in a merlot cask. 4 wild yeast fermentations later and yet another cask aging results in an exquisite sour peach ale.

On tap at The Livery 5th anniversary party. Poured a near clear deep amber w a peach hue and a white head that dissipated slowly to the edges. Aroma had a nice sour peach note with a hint of alcohol and oak/leather. Flavor began with sweet peach than grew slowly to a tart/sour peach finish with a hint of oak and leather in the finish.

Sampled on tap at the GTMW ’10 (Madison, WI). Pours a fiery orange red hue, summer sunset with light haze and a frothy tannish head atop that laces ok. Aromas are oaky tannins and acidic fruits, sour peaches play with funky brett, dust, a light biscuity malt character peeks through. Lactic acid and juicy peaches. Was expecting a touch stronger nose. Initial is still bigger bodied, a nice blast of flavorful peaches, sour and juicy with bretty yeasts making a funky bite, toffee malts, wet oak, lactic acid combine in a nice melange. The alcohol is there, but much more well hidden than expected for the size. Sour peaches, citrus, toffee, bread, barnyard funk, lactic acid, oak and vanilla. Gets dry towards the finish, still sour, funky yeast.. Hangs on into the finish with flashes of malt peeking through. A very nice sour peach beer, big on ABV. Definitely not conventional, but I’m a sucker for sour peaches.

Thanks to Beerlando. Can’t believe this is as strong as it is. Nice peach flavor with just a touch of medicinal qualities but not enough to be offputting. Solid beer with some good fruit and wood notes.

yngwie (16504) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 5, 2010
Bottle, 75cl, at RBNAG -09. A next to clear, orangey golden beer topped by a small, off-white head. The aroma is intensely sourish and warming in a very nice way. Peaches and white sugar also springs to mind. Dry, acidic flavor with hints of farmhouse, some peaches and even more acid. Medium to full body, warming and pleasantly carbonated. The alochol lasts for a good while, but in a really pleasant way. A really lovely sour ale that I would love to have available at all times. 091107

Nightfall (1307) - Hamburg, GERMANY - MAR 16, 2010
Bottle @ RBESG Grand tasting 2009. Hazy golden color, with a medium white head. Lovely peachy aroma, and a very nice sourish peachy taste. Quite enjoyable even for someone that isn’t a big fan of sours. Very tasty.

750 ml bottle sampled@RBNAG 2009, Vatlandsvåg. Dim reddish orange with a thin off-white head. Aroma is fruity and acidic with a Bret profile. Flavor is fruity aromatic, quite mild Bret impression, very refreshing with a funky, dry finish and well hidden alcohol. This is simply good, interesting and fun in a bottle.

750ml bottle, aged a further 8 months or so. Pours a lightly hazy, medium orange amber color. A small but lasting head of smooth, cream colored foam leaves a sudsy wash that slowly creeps back into the body below. Scant spots of lace manage to escape the recession. The aroma is quite oaky, showing a woodsy tone and soft wisps of vanilla over a base of bready malt, tart peach, grape, and a light smattering of peppery, floral hops. Flavors zoom in on funky-tart fermented peach notes, shining through the bready, slightly caramelized malt base with fruity zest. Oak imparts a vinous character, though floral hops usher in a familiar, balancing, beery feel. The palate sports a medium-plus body that is lightly carbonated, finishing smooth and dry. I was shocked to read that this one weighs in at 14% ABV, because the alcohol is well hidden. Solid brew. Very unique.
