22oz bottle filled from the tap at NBB courtesy Gbontrag..Thanks!
Pours perfectly clear pale copper, with a quick whisp of a white head. Within seconds the head was gone with no trace of lace or any remains of foam.
Aromatics are tart, sour and fruity. A great balance of acid, citrus, and brett. Peaches are there, but have faded to a more general fruitiness.
Mouthfeel is barely spritzy with a sharp edge of crispness.
The pallet has a subdued sourness for a lambic, but this lends well to the drinkability of the beer, as does the dry, fruity character.
A mere hint of hard peach candies is as much residuals as you will find, as the beer is really dry for the amount of fruit.
Bitterness is negligent as is any hopping, with the tart fruit taking center stage.
Finishes with a lingering puckering note and the pulp of the peach near the pit.
