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.

Thanks to Joe for sharing!

Hazy orange with a thin layer of white foam that slowly recedes to a ring around the edge. Initial burst of charged carbonation.

Aroma is acidic and fruity, distinct peach note and barrel complexity.

Taste is sour and acidic with peach at the forefront, slightly acetic, drying in the finish with some light barrel traces. Feel is spritzy and sour. Overall it's pretty tasty and enjoyable.
