4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
First whiff and I’m back at Spuyten Duvyl with Pinot D’Aunis in hand and the sun on my face. Then it’s Jeremy’s living room as SH Berliner Weisse dawns on us. This is another of those ethereal beers, a contrast of fruit lightness, minerals, and earth dryness. Special BECAUSE it exists. Thanks GT.
hazy tangerine, very bright, creamy small bubbled white head. The Fantasia Five nose: cloud of dust, meet peach and cantaloupe rind. Melon and slight hay sting the nose in the end. Flavor is incredible peach, light asian spice, stinky melon finish, heavy dust Brett with warmth. Ultra soft palate, stunning combo, supremely drinkable and refreshing. Lightly simple throughout flavor, but that’s the only complaint. A revelation.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
750mL bottle #19 of 120. Thanks to cavemanlawyer. Pours full haze peach with medium white foam. Spotty white lacing. Nose is fresh mangosteen, nectarines. Bright orange fruits. Opening up, there is more fresh jackfruit and Asian market fruit. Some white wine barrel acidity comes through like Lost Abbey Cable Car. Taste is very bright and fresh, juicy mangosteen and lighty tangy nectarine and pineapple. So refreshing. Perfect delicate summer beer. Unfortunately unobtainable. Wish this came in six packs. Plus one for ridiculous beer at low alcohol.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750mL bottle, courtesy of and split with julian (thanks man!), pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is full of faded peaches, barnyard funk, and some mild acidity. Flavour brings out lightly tart white wine barrels, oak, some mild peaches, some musty grape and barnyard funk. Quite fruity, but obviously less so than Fantasia, but this one is a lot more oaky and vinous than Fantasia, and less sour and fruity. Highly drinkable. Delicious stuff.

Yeah this is a fun beer. I think Paul shared this at Woodshop? Pours a yellow with a nice white head. Peaches, apricots, light spice, some yeasty notes in the nose. Flavor is dry with good doses of stone fruits, yeast and a bit of hints from the barrel. Nice!
