Je pourrais passer des heures à chercher les mots qui la définiraient. Je vais m’en tenir à jus de pêche grassement bretté, étincelant de croustillance. Buvabilité transpercante.

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.

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!

Bottle. Pours apricot gold with white head. Nose and taste of fresh apricot, apricot pit, peach and peach pit, mango pit, stone fruits, Brett, oak, wild funk and yeast. Lots of fresh peach and apricot. Mouthfeel of creamed peaches and apricots with some oak and wild yeast. Amazing. Medium body. Slightly dry finish.

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.

Golden with thin white head. Aroma is super fruity. Taste is strawberry and some green apple. Somewhat funky. Undercarbonated. Real nice beer, one of my favorites from Upright.

Bottle from my PNW buddy Chris - thanks! Clear dark yellow in color with a nice white head. Lots of lacing. Crisp clean slightly hoppy nose. Very nice taste, a little funky, a little hoppy, just a touch tart and lots of bitterness. Maybe a touch of oak tannin in the finish as well. Very nice - I wish I had shared it, but at the same time, I’m glad I didn’t share it!
