We took our double gold medal winning Brainless Belgian, added organic peach puree and aged it in French Chardonnay casks from Sawtooth Winery. Drink from a Pinot glass, serve on the warm side of cold, it develops nicely as it warms displaying more fruit and wine.

Served in a taster at Bittercreek in Boise ID.

A: Clear yellow/gold with whispy white head.

S: Significant Belgian notes and yeasty phenols, mild tartness and peach character, with a good amount of musty funk underlying that fruit character. Some sweeter malt notes poke through as well.

T: Moderate fruity tartness and peach flavors, with some mild pear and white wine characteristics as well. Belgian yeast layered with Chardonnay and funk, bready malt and underlying sweetness.

MF: Well-carbed and relatively full bodied.

O: A decent beer, on-tap it seemed to be 50% Belgian and 50% fruit beer; I would have preffered more peach.

This one surprised me. I was hoping for a true sour, and while this is not that, it does have a mild tartness with a slight barnyard funk/horseblanket edge. There’s a decent amount of complexity, (besides the subtle peach) with graham cracker, vanilla, white grape and clove mingling nicely. Some have complain about its heat, but I find it to be very muted, especially for its strength. The finish is rather mild, but lengthy enough, and pleasantly dry. Although this isn’t a brew I’d choose on a blustery winter’s day, I find it to be the perfect accompaniment for the onset of fall.

Poured into a small tulip at Westover Beer Haus

A decent beer that is right on the edge of being a go to. Maybe it was the moment, but the lack of substantial aroma doomed this beer to a rating of less than 4. Do not worry about the peaches, not overwhelming.

A - Slightly cloudy pale orange, no head (bar pour), no lacing.

S - Faint peach, but little else.

T – Low peach flavor, some slight funkiness, faint sweetness, some tartness/bitterness, a bit of alcohol.

MF -Med light bodied, well carbonated, somewhat sharp.
