4.58/5 rDev +1.8%
375ml bottle 6.25% Abv.
Served chilled in a wine glass.
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.

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