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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

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.

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.
