A ridiculously massive thanks to my new beer buddy jefeld for hauling this all the way to a safari camp in South Africa for me to taste!

Appearance: Fairly opaque bright golden orange body topped by a large white head. The head lasts fairly well but doesn’t leave much in the way of the lacing.

Smell: Oh wow, this smells amazing. There is a ton of super juicy peach (it reminds me of breaking open juicy fresh yellow peaches when I was younger) combined with both sweet and tart citrus elements and an overripe fruit note. There is a hint of mustiness, a touch of wood and a light lactic acidity.

Taste: As with the nose there is a ton of fresh peach and citrus but also a solid tartness and some nice ‘wild’ notes. Slightly musty, a little wood, overripe fruit notes (it reminds me of oranges that have started to grow a little earthy mold), lactic acidity and some dry grass.

Mouthfeel: Initially there is a ton of rather aggressive carbonation (too much for me), but thankfully it settles down nicely. You can feel the fruit addition in the body with a little more heft that you might normally expect.

Overall: I barely even knew about Block 15 before today, but this one certainly put them on the map for me! I can’t believe that this is their first spontaneous fermentation beers – I suspect we will be seeing good things from these guys in the future.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Clear orange body. Small white head and a medium collar.

Smell - Peachy. Sweet fruitiness. Some lactic acidity. Oaky and lemony.

Taste - Less intense peach, but still present. Much more acetic here. Oaky still. A little bit of funk.

Mouthfeel - Pretty sour. Medium body and carbonation.

Overall - The blend is better, but the peach is nice.

2014 bottle.

Cloudy amber pour, huge puffy white head that settled to a medium ringlet. Nice lacing. Sweet Tart aroma. Sumptuous white peach in the taste...like actually biting into a peach. Tartness/sourness about middle of the road, nice and balanced, with a fruity sweetness keeping things organized, lots of cobwebs and notes of wildflowers. Medium body, crisp mouthfeel, but slight syrupy in the finish. Very nice overall.

Thanks S!

A - Pours a nearly clear, very light orange with a very active near-white fizzy head that fades farily fast.

S - Strong tart peaches, acidic barrel tones. Pleasant.

T - Sweet peach, then some tart woodiness, finishes a bit acidic.

D - Tons of carbonation with a light body.

O - Wonderful peach and barrle notes. Terrific beer.

Pour is lightly haze yellowish amber with lots of very tight white head that sits for a while. Nose has a strong dusty, cob webb, well integrated brett with a moderate peach aroma. Taste is even better, peaches are so bright with the brett pulled together working with the peach adding a dusty aspect to it. Back end is bright peach pie filling with a nice gentle sour. Feel is great, soft, delicate, just a hint oily, well carbonated.

On tap at Les Caves.

A: Orange color with a drifting white head. Slides off the glass.

N: Lightly sour with plenty of fresh peach. Some attic funk, yeast, and lots of oak lending a heavy woodiness.

T: Heavy sour with a modicum of the fruit sweetness. Very clean and precise.

M: Light and well carbonated.

O: I am extremely impressed by this. Not only by the beer itself, but also by the fact that this is really a first attempt at a spontaneous sour. Good stuff that I can’t wait to try again.

Smells and tastes like the perfect sour peach beer. I love it! Best peach beer I've tasted. I compared these two, and they're both amazing!
