COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fuzzy is an American Wild Ale that was fermented in and aged in Chardonnay barrels with a blend of wild yeast and bacteria from our family’s farm and our house souring cultures. Once mature, the beer was aged on close to four pounds per gallon of Missouri-grown White Peaches for an additional six months before an extended bottle conditioning.

[ Bottle ][ ½ of 37.5cl ][ Tasting ][ Trade ][ Tulip ][ 9.27.14 ]
Hazy hay-gold, darker than Fen Tao, fizzy white head laces decently and lasts. Manure-peach nose, light rubber, fleshy with light sourness, low sweetness, a little lotion mutes. High acidity at front palate, white grapefruit/peach notes, low sweetness, high sourness across slick mid, tongue curled, jowls hurting, fizzy full body accenting peach flesh, lightly under-ripe, low rind. Finish lasts long with sourness, tingling, expressive peach but needing more sweetness and yeast to balance, straightforward acidity giving it much of its character.

Pour is a pale yellow, very hazy, with a tight white head. Nose has a bit of cheese and rubber up front with a light touch of fairly ripe peach. Taste has a fair bit of fuzzy peach, a faint touch of rubber mid palate, moderate to strong acidity in the back, slightly bitter finish. Body is a bit fuller and heavy, well carbonated, semi dry in the finish. Gets a little sweet in back.
