Beer added by: msubulldog25 on 01-16-2012

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.

Taken from my blog.

Appearance: Cloudy peach with a tiny bit of pink. Not much head to speak of but forms a small ring at the edges after a while. No lacing

Aroma: Smells like a bucketload of peaches with some tartness and funk thrown in. Since I’ve already tried this beer on tap, I’m very excited to see what the bottled-version has to offer.

Taste: Wow. This beer is quite sour for having so much peaches in it. However, as soon as the sourness fades, sweet peaches come to the front, with some funky earthiness towards the end. I got very little peach when I tried this beer on tap, but it’s definitely here in bottled form. I liked the beer on tap immensely, but this beer definitely better out of the bottle. No question.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. It feels extremely smooth, creamy even. Perfect mouthfeel to go with the taste.

Drinkability: I bought a case but am splitting it with a Beer Advocate buddy. I’m kind of regretting it now though. I want it all to myself!

Notes: best beer I’ve had from Upright for sure. I love their beers, but this beer is a completely different animal. I can’t wait for it to be released again next year!
