COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sour Belgian w/ Peaches
Pêche Mode is brewed with 700 lbs of peaches from Matt’s orchard in Odell. Red Haven and Elberta peaches from the 2011 season were puréed and added to a three-week old strong Belgian ale along with the same Brettanomyces culture used in both Krieks. This particular beer wasn’t aged as long as the Krieks, so the Brett character is not as tart and assertive. The peach aroma comes through nicely, providing a sweetness alongside the slight sourness provided by the Brett. “Golly it’s peachy!”

Me like sour beers and this was a bit of a miss. Maybe a bad bottle. Aroma was peach, brett, and apricot; but there was also diacetyl hiding. Taste was more of the same, but still oddly drinkable.

JStax (6999) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2017
Draft sample. The beer is a murky gold. No head. Big peach aroma with moderate acidity. Some sweet but a balancing acidity. Medium body and low carbonation.

j12601 (12979) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 31, 2017
On tap at PreFunk. Pours a milky and hazed amber, no head. Looks like the bottom of a keg. Soft peach on the nose, a bit of fruit and yeast. Medium bodied, apricot and peach pulp. Yeast in here as well as acid, soft peach. Decent enough, but feels like the end of a keg and a bit too murky both visually, and flavourwise.

IndianaRed (4871) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 28, 2017
On tap at PreFunk Nampa Cloudy light tan pour. Decent coarse beige head. Light malty aromas with some slightly tart peach notes. More of the fruit in the flavors. Modest sour character. Some caramel candy sweetness and fairly big ber for a light fruit sour.

On tap at Prefunk. Pours a cloudy orange with medium white head that lasts. The aroma is strong peach candy, brett, oak. Thin body, wheat, peach, brett, light tartness, good.

sulawang (1172) - - APR 12, 2017
Visual: (cellared for 1 year). Hefty quality bottle. Pours translucent marmalade orange with a smallish long-lasting 2mm head, tight steady-fast clustered streams.

Nose: high acidic sour pukey, fruity alcoholic peach-apricot at the backend (lvl-6)-pungency

Attack: huge sour-medium tart impression, soft crisp

Mid-palate: (lvl-2-sweetness), light vinegar, manageable big sour, medium pukey funk, dull peach notes mixed with tangy fruity malt

Finish: medium tart, lingering tangy soft fruity pukey acidity

Summary: Despite its big sourness and pukey nature, this is surprisingly sippable and the ABV is very well hidden. The peach fruitiness is on the dull side but the engaging acidity keeps this one interesting.

fiulijn (20993) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 19, 2016
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Cloudy golden color, almost no head. Lean but robust beer, with moderate acidity; the peach adds a very pleasant delicate note that perfectly integrates with the rest.
Very good Sour beer, not too aggressive, balanced, with depth.
Excellent.

Sweet fruity nose of peach juice. Less tart than expected though it is slightly funky and dry. One timer at the price point.

This is my favorite beer of all time. It’s the best fruit beer mixed with the best sour beer, if you like that sort of thing. Double Mountain also has a cherry kreik, which is pretty good, but it doesn’t touch this fantastic peach sour.
