Bottle acquired at the same time as blend #2 in order to drink them side by side, but drunk on its own because blend #2 was stolen from my cellar. I'm pretty sure the thief did not really like it, after all sour beers are not so popular in the South of France...
A: Pours a clear golden with an impressive foamy white head which fades away quickly. Golden and copper glints, very clear, really good looking.
S: Smell is impressive on the peach, it's as fruity as a white peach juice, with also a lemony scent and distinctive brett flavors. Powerful and brilliant nose.
T: The taste follows pretty much the nose regarding the fruitiness. The peach is still impressive, but there is also a big sourness not foreseen from the nose. The final is dry and focused on brett with a bit of funk and barnyard flavors. Very elegant.
M: Carbonation is rather low and the body is a bit light. I would have appreciated more bubbles to support the strong flavors.
O: I'm quite unsure why this beautiful beer doesn't get higher ratings. As usual, it's a wonderful one brought to us by Crooked Stave.
