500ml bottle share (6/11). Initial pour yields a cloudy golden body, capped off with a small white head. Aroma brings the peaches to the forefront, along with some tartness. taste adds in some vanilla elements to round this out. Nice sour

The fruiting was excellent and held up well. The carbonation was the real winner. The bubbles were like Champagne bubbles which created a very effusive mouthfeel.

for a brewery i have never heard of, even for one i have, this is impossibly delicious. a coolship fermented wild ale with peaches in oak barrels, pretty darn impressive! its golden to copper colored, glowing orange, new penny luster, with a short but lasting white head and plenty of bubbles. the nose is like smelling salts, it throws my head back involuntarily, not because its so sour, but because its so interesting. juicy ripe peach skins, tangy brett and lacto, and a bright acidity. the flavor of the peaches is over ripe, a day too long in the window in the sun, sagging a touch but about to pop, one of my favorite summer flavors, and they just nailed it here. hard to get all that peach flavor in a beer that isnt sweet, and they do that expertly as well. im not getting so much wood on this, the fruit overpowers any of that in a good way. the wild yeasts in this are very unique too, rustic and perfectly balanced between funky farmy and sour. they bottle condition this with honey, which can absolutely be tasted. while it is dry, its not so dry that this unique touch cant be appreciated. huge fan of the process and the overall boutique nature of this beer, you can taste the care and love than went in to it, and i am over the moon on its quality and uniqueness. i will be looking out for more of their beer, but in the meantime, if anyone wants to send me another bottle, hit me up!

Just not my cup of tea. The beer delivers a lot of peach, light lemon and vanilla, but with the sour component clearly dominating everything else. I found the cassis to be a much more interesting beer to drink, thought still a bit to sour and funky for my taste.

Smells and tastes like the perfect sour peach beer. I love it! Best peach beer I've tasted. I compared these two, and they're both amazing!

2014 bottle.

Cloudy amber pour, huge puffy white head that settled to a medium ringlet. Nice lacing. Sweet Tart aroma. Sumptuous white peach in the taste...like actually biting into a peach. Tartness/sourness about middle of the road, nice and balanced, with a fruity sweetness keeping things organized, lots of cobwebs and notes of wildflowers. Medium body, crisp mouthfeel, but slight syrupy in the finish. Very nice overall.

Pour is lightly haze yellowish amber with lots of very tight white head that sits for a while. Nose has a strong dusty, cob webb, well integrated brett with a moderate peach aroma. Taste is even better, peaches are so bright with the brett pulled together working with the peach adding a dusty aspect to it. Back end is bright peach pie filling with a nice gentle sour. Feel is great, soft, delicate, just a hint oily, well carbonated.

375ml bottle 6.25% Abv.
Served chilled in a wine glass.
2013 Vintage
A ridiculously massive thanks to my new beer buddy jefeld for hauling this all the way to a safari camp in South Africa for me to taste!

Appearance: Fairly opaque bright golden orange body topped by a large white head. The head lasts fairly well but doesn’t leave much in the way of the lacing.

Smell: Oh wow, this smells amazing. There is a ton of super juicy peach (it reminds me of breaking open juicy fresh yellow peaches when I was younger) combined with both sweet and tart citrus elements and an overripe fruit note. There is a hint of mustiness, a touch of wood and a light lactic acidity.

Taste: As with the nose there is a ton of fresh peach and citrus but also a solid tartness and some nice ‘wild’ notes. Slightly musty, a little wood, overripe fruit notes (it reminds me of oranges that have started to grow a little earthy mold), lactic acidity and some dry grass.

Mouthfeel: Initially there is a ton of rather aggressive carbonation (too much for me), but thankfully it settles down nicely. You can feel the fruit addition in the body with a little more heft that you might normally expect.

Overall: I barely even knew about Block 15 before today, but this one certainly put them on the map for me! I can’t believe that this is their first spontaneous fermentation beers – I suspect we will be seeing good things from these guys in the future.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Clear orange body. Small white head and a medium collar.

Taste - Less intense peach, but still present. Much more acetic here. Oaky still. A little bit of funk.

Thanks S!

A - Pours a nearly clear, very light orange with a very active near-white fizzy head that fades farily fast.

S - Strong tart peaches, acidic barrel tones. Pleasant.

T - Sweet peach, then some tart woodiness, finishes a bit acidic.

D - Tons of carbonation with a light body.

O - Wonderful peach and barrle notes. Terrific beer.

On tap at Les Caves.

A: Orange color with a drifting white head. Slides off the glass.

N: Lightly sour with plenty of fresh peach. Some attic funk, yeast, and lots of oak lending a heavy woodiness.

T: Heavy sour with a modicum of the fruit sweetness. Very clean and precise.

M: Light and well carbonated.

O: I am extremely impressed by this. Not only by the beer itself, but also by the fact that this is really a first attempt at a spontaneous sour. Good stuff that I can’t wait to try again.
