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.

ricke (476) - Malme, SWEDEN - NOV 24, 2009
Golden amber color, hazy. A minimal head dissipates immediately. The smell is ofmalts, caramel, wood, fruitiness with an obvious yet restrained peachy character. The alcohol is present and gives the smell a sweet liqueur-like quality. The flavor is of sweet caramel maltiness and fruity aromas. More sweet peaches than in the smell, but still not very powerful. The peaches are genuine rather than candy-like. Vanilla and grass. Some dusty funky notes and oak. The sweetness is accompanied by a gentle tartness. The finish is really dry with plenty of alcohol and tart peaches. Medium body, smooth texture with a dry finish. A good beer. At 14% ABV, the alcohol is really well hidden and integrated with the flavors and aromas. Serving type: bottle (Copy of old Beer Advocate review)

hopscotch (10612) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 31, 2009
Bottle… October ’09 O-Town Throwdown… Lightly hazed amber ale with a fizzy white head. The nose is all about funkiness – sweaty sock – vanilla and wood. Full-bodied with kicked-back carbonation. The flavor is tart, fruity and a touch boozy. Fruity, tangy finish… then it dries way out. Bottle provided by Beerlando !
