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.

harrisoni (17278) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2009
Bottle at RBESG09 Grand tasting, Sheffield. Cloudy copper. Belgian lambic peach clone. Some lemon. It’s pretty good, but clearly not Belgian. OK, bit too carbonated..

yngwie (16503) - 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
