5.9% · Sour/Wild Ale · 4 Ratings ·
Wild ale fermented with wild peaches. We are fortunate to have access to many varieties of peaches in California. What better way to celebrate our wild side than tracking down a white dwarf variety from a local farm, The Christensen Ranch, and utilizing its fruit to create a beer. We couldn’t resist the beautiful aroma from this feral volunteer peach. Introducing Feral Peach wild ale. The synergy between aromatic fruit, wild microflora and long maturation in oak barrels creates a bright peach flavor, deep rustic funk and spicy oak flavors. A firm acidity and lively carbonation punctuate this concoction.
