COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Peacemaker brings the flavors of wine, bourbon, and sour beer together as one. It starts with a custom blend of two beers, both fermented from coolship-caught microbes. Once fermented, the beer is transferred to oak barrels that first held bourbon before their second life aging cherry wine from the Palisade region of Colorado. After being freshly emptied at the winery, the beer was transferred to these vessels and allowed to rest and soak up all the beautiful caramel, vanilla, cherry, and oak character. The bases alone are funky and tart, and still peeks through all the other flavors.

Bourbon and cherry wine...what a unique and delicious combo. The wine was slightly more prominent in this golden sour, but neither were anything close to overpowering. I really dug the subtly vinous cherry notes, hint of bourbon and moderately sour base. This is crazy complex, like something Ale Apothecary would come up with. Best I've had from them so far.

Sample from a bottle at Beer Meets Wood last weekend.
Longest line of the fest. Lightly tart with plenty of earthy cherry fruity lemony flavors offset with a bit of earthy funk. New brewery for me, I'd like to try more from them.

Strange, nuanced beer that probably should not be served in crazy breakneck festival settings. There’s a lot to look at here, from both a production and a results standpoint, but it’s a complex sour with interesting barrel qualities. Would love to get a bottle to have at home.

Bottle pour from the Brick Store. Smooth light tart wood flavors. Funk, lots of funk. Give this some time to warm up and sit on your palate and it gets better, more complex. Lots of bubbles. Bourbon is faint.

750mL bottle, sent from wchesser (thanks Will!), pours a cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out lots of barnyard funk, light oak, and some tropical stone fruits. Flavour is very wild, with loads of oak, stone fruits, and medium acidity. Bright, stone fruity, and perfectly acidic. Excellent.

Pours a hazy gold from the bottle with bubbly white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of complex funk and acidity, hints of vanilla and oak, a light fruitiness on the end. Taste is nuts, big funk up front, falls to musty oak, then a nice kick of sweetness, that finishes acidic, but not overly so. Very nice, would love to get more of this stuff.
