Notes/Commercial Description:
Historically, fruit-infused sour beers were a way of preserving the summer harvest. In that tradition, this blonde ale was added to brandy barrels with high-summer peaches, hand-picked by the Loewen family at Blossom Bluff Orchards in Reedley, California. We aged this liquid gold for six months until we needed a reminder that summer will come again. Pair with Prosciutto, crusty bread and fruit preserves.

Somewhat cloudy golden body and a small white head shows itself on the pour.

Comes off more citric than peachy. Brandy barrel.

Pretty refreshing with lots of fruity flavor of lemon and peach. Nice lactic sourness. Lighter bodied. Musty funk. Ends a little dry.

Amazing flavor on this bad boy.
