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!”

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.

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.

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.

Draft - Vintage 2014 - Sweet peach candy. Clearish gold with a small head. Light funky stone fruit and a light finish. Nice and light, but peach has faded.

I just found this! I had no idea that it even existed until last weekend, and it’s been on my mind a lot this week. I’m looking forward to a little bit of funk and tonight is a great evening to enjoy something a bit sour. - Tangy, funky peaches erupt from the bottle as soon as I crack the cap and immediately set my mouth watering. I tip the bottle and pour, the almond-hued, foamy head rising only slightly above a hazy brew, marmalade in color. The fragrance is redolent...evocative, and I can’t wait to taste it. - The experience is anticipated...the sour taste biting at the small edges of my mouth, searing its way from my lips to my jaw, a flash of moisture under my tongue. As I let it settle, the sweetness from the peaches is delightful; a spicy dough with a bitter funk following the swallow. The light body is lively with sufficient carbonation to carry the flavors without projecting like a soda...it so easily could have been too much. - The brightness of the fruit is tantalizing rather than cloying and the Brett is represented well in the flavor. The earthy tones in the yeast mute the sweetness of the fruit, taming the tartness without killing it altogether. - A nice blend of flavors delivered in a mouth-watering experience with a finish that has convinced me to spend the money on at least one more bottle to share with friends. Delightful!

Bottle, love the name! Light amber with an off white head that gradually settles down. Light musty farmhouse mixed with peaches, light apricot and pear, mild presence, moderate carbonation and mild body, easy to drink.

bottle, a vinegar bomb, tons of peach flavors, then tons of vinegar. Overwhelming vinegar, too bad.

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2015 Bottle - Pours orange white head -nose/taste of peach, oak, funky peach pit - nose is a little off but taste is spot on - medium body. Tasty. This bottle must be getting better given the earlier ratings.

Hazy muddled orange. Nose of peach and apricot, some musty funk. Taste follows...slightly chewy texture with nice peach flavors. Not very sour, but nice funk to it. Solid.
