A barrel fermented beer using fresh peaches from Baird Family Orchards. The Fantasia is firmly tart and hugely aromatic with a character not unlike Belgian fruit lambics. Minimum one year on oak before an extended bottle conditioning prior to release.

On at 16 tons taphouse last night. To no great surprise, there was quite the turn out to sample this beer.

Pour into a teku glass, the beer has the color of peach fruit, with very good head retention and adequate lacing. The nose would make any cantillon fan grin. There is considerable barnyard funk, peaches, vanilla and noticeable sour. The flavor profile is more of the same, though for me, the sour component was almost too much (as I'm not a big sour guy). The fruit component is very bright and forward in this beer. Mouthfeel was fairly light, but with great flavor and intensity. Considering the abv., it's impressive how much flavor this beer delivers. Alcohol is all but unnoticeable in this impressive beer.

Even someone who doesn't enjoy sours (like me) can enjoy this beer. It's a bit more tart than Peche n brett, but brightness of the fruit in this beer is very, very impressive. I can understand why this beer is so popular.
