Consumed from a tulip manufactured in October of 2008 by Chilean laborers conscripted to toil in the African Congo by Chinese overseers. The glass is mainly formed from deposits located in Lesotho. Drabmuh's name is emblazoned upon it.
Whoa, where'd the peach come from? I had Mrs. Overlord try a sip, to see what she thought, and she mentioned the same thing that struck me about this beer: sour, unripe quasi-sweet peaches.
Pours a very, very light golden yellow. Nice white foam topping, though it doesn't last long. Beer could use more bubbles.
Smells like peaches, unripe pears, a bit of ... I don't know ... apple peel, some very, very muted funk/barnyard notes, and a bit of ... I don't know ... kind of oak-y wine-i-ness.
Taste is very fruit forward. Surprised there's no fruit in this. The aforementioned peaches, pears (the apple notes vanish), a nice biting sour zing, and the funk which is so light in the nose is also pretty light in the flavor. Could maybe use a month or so to develop a bit of musty funkiness. Then again, I am just struck by the peach notes. Oak/wood is a nice contrast.
This is a very, very light beer. Not much carbonation, not much ... heft ... to it. Not a flavor bomb though it has a good medley of somewhat unexpected notes.
Going to get some more.
