At the time of this review, this is #15 on the "Top Beers - American Wild Ale" list on beeradvocate.com. Holy sour Batman, served in a Bruery tulip because I can.

Beer is light amber and hazy with a nice white head, low retention, some lacing.

Aroma is sour sour sour with some fruitness...peaches sneaking through.

Beer is light in body and sour sour sour. The sourness is really pronounced and sort of eclipses everything else going on in there. The peaches sneak through....it is a good beer though I enjoyed it and will have it again.

Bottle (2013)

The Bruery
Placentia, CA

Fairly clear pour with brown dregs clouding the final pour more than previously. Dark orange/juicy apricot/peach in color. Collar of near-white, large bubbled foam. Somewhat sticky on the way down. Gorgeous American fruited sour.

Lots of juicy, sour, and lactic peach character in the aroma. Mild vanilla and oak, but less than in the base beer. Very mild vinegar. Fruit begins to present more and more as the beer warms.

Balanced well between fruit character, lactic sour, and vanilla/oak/earth notes. As with the aroma, the peach character and a slight vinegar presence becomes slightly more pronounced as the beer warms. Perhaps not quite as sour as the base beer without fruit. Complete and delicious. Fantastic.

Near medium bodied with fairly high carbonation for the style.

Fantastic. One of the best beers The Bruery has ever done. Loved this beer.

Rocked a bottle while tailgating before the first game of the Nevada/SDSU baseball series. Future 1st round pick Shipley pitching!

Pours the color of a peach, off to a great start, it even produced a pretty head on it, 3/5" range. Even for being poured into a "red solo cup" (ah damn, one of the worst songs ever), it still had great retention, and did its best to give lace on the slick surface.

Aroma, juicy and sour. We're doing great here. The peach is all over it, smells like a peach and apricot blend. Thinking Cascade already. The taste hits you with a MASSIVE amount of fruit and sourness. The rye still makes for a sturdy body. Alcohol, nowhere to be found in the mouthfeel. Plenty of citrus to taste throughout it. Are peaches even citrus? Anyways, it has that orange like citrus sweetness. I don't want to understate this: its deliciously sour. Sourheads rejoice!

Would never have thought they could really improve sour in the rye, but lo and behold, this is better than the original. Now if you were huge on the rye, you might be disappointed, because the rye, from a taste perspective, is not as pungent as it was in the base version. But don't lose sight of the fact that the rye still makes a very nice foundation for the beer, even if the spice aspect of it isn't there. The caramel undercurrent is minimal and well placed. Oak in the right amount.

One of the best new beers of 2013. Maybe the best so far.

S - Lactic acid, lemon peel, balanced with sweet peach

T - Peach sweetness up front before you get hit with the tart lemon, white vinegar and lactic acid. This is well balanced between the two. The finish is tart with light oak.

M - Tart, dry, and lots of carbonation that gives it a sharp bite to it.

O - Well balanced sour from the Bruery that is one of the better ones they have made. The peaches complement the tartness of the base beer well. It manages to be sweet while also making you almost want to pucker up from its tartness.

2015 vintage. Rebranded as Terreux SitR w/ Peaches. 750ml capped bottle into Night Shift stemware. Shared with schen9303.

Pours a coarse 1 finger white head with poor retention. Beer is a slightly cloudy bright bronze. Lacing is spotty and sparse with little cling and very small, thin legs. Slightly below average.

Nose is very unique. Spicy and tart in the mouth with a juicy, sweet peach presence. Tickles the nose but deep and smooth at the same time. Nice.

Opens strangely spicy. Hints of cinnamon, peach skin and peach pit. Very tart and fruity in the mouth. Wood and more spice in the middle with an oily booziness. Ends peach pulp and a boozy, syrupy sweetness. Fruit and booze in the aftertaste. Strange, but pretty good.

Medium bodied with low carbonation. Slick and oily in the mouth and goes down prickly and aggressive. Finishes messy with a long, lingering, filmy aftertaste. Strange but pretty good.

This beer is certainly one-of-a-kind. A bit heavier than usual for the style. Very fruit forward, with a strange but good mouthfeel and again, a strange but good flavor profile. Worth trying!

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Murky orange. Lots of haze and sediment. Nice white head. Medium collar.

Smell - Bright acidity. Grainy. Peaches blend in nicely. Might even detect some rye there.

Taste - Peaches are much more prominent. Peach nectar flavor that gets stronger throughout. Oakier in the taste than the nose. Lots of vanilla. Peach juice in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Pretty sour. Not the cleanest of sours, but nice. High carbonation.

Overall - Not often I enjoy a Bruery sour. This is really excellent. Delicious peach flavor.

2013 Vintage

Appearance: Slightly murky light-amber in color. Generous white head that quickly dissipated.

Smell: Tart Peaches and slight funk. The slightest hint of citrus fruits. The Bruery didn't spare the peaches as the smell features prominently.

Taste: Tart peaches, mild musk and very faint citrus notes. For comparison I had the regular Sour in the Rye the night before and the spicy rye notes in the regular version are no longer featured. The peaches feature prominently and don't come across as an afterthought. Very clean aftertaste as the peaches fade away. (As it warms up a a bit higher than the recommended serving temp the smallest hint of rye emerges).

Mouth-feel: Satisfying medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall: When they first announced the beer I wondered if it would taste like Sour in the Rye with some peaches layered on. The answer is no, this is a different beer, as the peaches feature up front in the nose and taste and the rye notes from the original version are toned down. The sourness of the regular version is also toned down a notch but there still remains a decent level of tartness/sourness. Bruery, why can't I get a case of this?

Bottle shared by Curran at the Le Roar Grrrz 2015 release. Batch 1.

This one pours a hazy and murky orange, with no head or lacing.

This one smells really peachy for a 2 year old beer, with some acidic aromas, a bit of rye, and lemon.

The peaches in this one are really nice, and still tastes fresh and juicy even a few years later. There's a nice spiciness from the rye that balances nicely with the peach sweetness and fairly intense sourness.

This has a very juicy mouthfeel, with a prickly level of carbonation. It is very drinkable and refreshing.

This is definitely one of the best Bruery beers I've ever had.

750mL bottle shared at tasting. Reviewed from notes.

Golden orange, bright and glowing with a rapidly diminishing white head. Vigorous bead.

Zingy and vibrant peach lending a subtle sweet edge to the solid base notes of light dusty funk and mellow lemony tartness.

Quite a bit sourer than expected, although still manageabley so. There's a unique sweet and sour twang from the peach that integrates very well with the base beer.

Lovely mouthfel. Buzzy, lively acidity, silky carbonation and dreamy tartness.

Excellent treatment of a very smart base beer. The peach fits like lock and key.

I'm not gonna do a traditional review. But let me just say that this is the best sour I've ever had. Aroma is all peaches. Walking through a farmers market. Slight funk but a ton of peach. Flavor is even better. Some tartness, though I do wish for a little more but I'm just nitpicking at this point. Loads of fresh peach flavor. Seriously an amazing beer and glad I got to try it. Great beginner sour as well for anyone not too into sours.

750 ml bottle shared by kapkenobi - huge thanks for the pour!

A: Murky/hazy orange colored body with a fluffy white head on top. Retention was pretty nice throughout my consumption, minor blotches of lace coated the glass.

S: Rye, spicy rye, is up front along with fresh peaches. Sour almost lactic quality comes through. Plenty of subtle citrus in the background too.

T: Millions of peaches, peaches for me. Seriously, this is straight up PEACH IN YO' FACE. I could have sworn I was biting into a fresh fuzzy peach. Rye is here for the assist with plenty of sourness to back this all up. Just stunningly delicious.

M: Well carbonated, good pucker on the back of the palate but balanced it its own right.

I thought this years Sour in the Rye was awesome, but the addition of peaches takes this beer to an entirely new level. I can't imagine this won't come back again, probably one of the best beers to come out of The Bruery.

Poured into a tulip.

3.25 A: Murky orange brown color. Two and a half fingers of frizzy off-white head that falls quickly and leaves only a few wisps of lacing.

4.25 S: Damn. The peaches in this really stand out. Both the tartness and the peach essence are easily detectable. Funk balances out the tartness and features a woody type funk with outdoorsy notes like apple orchard and rotting wood. Still, the focus is tangy, tart peach. It's hard to really pick out the rye in this. The peach pretty much covers it up. Not super complex, but it does smell pretty great.

4.25 T: Peach is all throughout the taste as well. They must have really used a lot of them in this. Super tart without being overly sour. A little more balanced than the typical acid bombs that the Bruery tends to put out. Quite tangy with a moderate acetic component. More fruity than the nose and with less funk. Peach, citrusy sour orange and apricot, oak, woody funk, apple orchard.

3.75 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly spritzy and lightly creamy. No complaints here.

4.25 D: One of the best sours Bruery sours I've had. Normally I find them too acetic and unbalanced, but this one works and it works well. Get a bottle if you love peaches or peach beers.

Split with the wife and paired with the warriors finals, game 6

Looks ok, was hoping for more fluff

Smell is great! But not enough peaches like the last batch

Taste is fantastic. Tons of that great base beer complimented well by the peaches.

Usually bruery mouth feel, heavy body

Overall fantastic!!

Wish I had more

Go warriors!!!

Shared with Rudzud as our HS membership says.

Small fizzy head fades at a med pace light lacing, very murky like solid color orange juice kinda thing tangerine orange color.

Nose brings peach flesh right off, like squishy fleshy peach and even a little nectarine citrusy like, faint bready malt, just a touch of passion fruit juice, touch of a tangerine passion fruit peach orange juice blend.

Taste brings more peach but not a lot, again that fleshy chewy stringy white peach like flavor, more juicy fruit like a def tangerine flavor, light citrus as well. Some tartness but not nearly like sour in the rye, a sour peach fruit. Light bready malts, and a nice spicy rye coming through a lot more than original sour in the rye. Light bready funk and wild Brett flavors but not a lot. Light acetic acid bite. Finish is drier but sticky and flemmy, lingering sour peach and fleshy peach, light bready funk, nice spicy rye, hint if tangerine juice lingering as well.

Mouth is med to lighter bod, lots of fluffy carb that even gets a bit sharp, some tart acidic bite.

Overall a decent beer but original sour in the rye is better. The peach is nice in the flavor but still muted and lighter overall in the aroma, lighter on the tart fruit and sourness, and almost no barrel, but the rye comes out a bit nicely, and the carb gets a bit too much. As far as peach beers this is not quite up there, Filmishmish was better IMO.

This is peachskin, this lovely Tuesday Rindos that you Fortunato Brad racemosa nest. Definitely some like doozies suffering, mineraly Ness, bananas Redonda BOKF - what is RCF? Oh yeah he was once beat.

In sum, loads of peaches make poetry in my mouth. Like eating peaches aged in sulfury barrels. Delicious, delicious Redondo. Recommend.

Poured from a 25 oz bottle into a Bruery snifter. Acquired as a generous extra in a trade with vitese. Thank you sir!

A- Pours a very cloudy orange-yellow body with an effervescent white head that reduces quickly and leaves no lacing.

S- SUPER fruity and fresh, like walking through a fruit farm! Freshly squeezed peaches, watermelon, tropical fruits, sour apples, tart citrus, lactic, and some oak. Very inviting.

T- That's what I'm talking about. Upfront is a huge punch of mouth-puckering sourness, like lemon juice, super sour lemonade, and unripe tart fruits. Next up is juicy peaches, plums, passion fruit. On the finish is a slight rye zing and vanilla presumably from the oak. Very nice.

M- Medium-light, refreshing body, medium carbonation.

Just like Oude Tart with cherries, the Bruery took one of their world-class sours and kicked it up a notch, elevating the taste and complexity which really makes this beer stand out. It may be hard to find, but seek it out of possible!

1816th Review on BA
Bottle to Bruery Tulip
750 Ml

2014 Vintage



App- Right out of the bottle, this has a nice color with a deep gold and orange color to it. The darker color lends itself to more of a style that I dont get from the base beer. Looks more like a DIPA to me, but the head that was there and gone with only about 1" of head. The more I swirl,the more it takes on a pancake batter head. A little foam and from. A ring remains after each swirl. No cling though.

Smell- I like the smell of this beer. I have always like the smell of SITR, but this was a bit too acidic and this is in the middle of the base beer and the addition of the Peaches creates a nice balance between citrus rind, flaked rye and a little oak.

Taste- This was more of a enamel stripping version of Kumquats. The citrus was more prevalent but still retained more of the base version with tart, acid, rye and oak. I couldnt finish this peach version and this was worse than expected. When it warmed more of the rye did come out. The ABV is quite hidden but once you get to the 2nd glass, its there, similar to the other two versions.

Mouth- A semi medium body with at times a little bit of lightness to it. A good medium carbonation was there, with a solid residual flavor of the fruit and rye IMO. I liked that at times it was a bit creamy and brought that head into play.

Drink- I think this one is the bottom of the 3 in terms of bottles of SITR. This lacked balance and wasnt layered than the other two and was cloyingly sweet and overtly acidic and a drain pour of the last 1/4 bottle.

Thank you, Abraham!

A hazy cloudy peachy yellow with a dense off-white head with good retention and minimal lacing, this beer looks good. The nose is solid. Initially sulfury, especially when cold, this beer takes on a pronounced semi ripe peach juice aroma to go with the rye spiciness. Sourness is quite lactic. The base beer, one I'm not wholly familiar with, is quite decently expressed with rye, caraway and a little allspice. Solid.

The palate opens sour with raw peaches, lactic acid and an intense period sourness. Peach juice flavor permeates the palate quite nicely, really complementing the spicy sourness. The sulfur thats present on the nose is absent from the palate, especially after it has a chance to breathe. A touch of burn, faintly solvent like, is also present. Medium in body and moderately carbonated , this beer is fruity and soir on the finish. Very nice.
