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.

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.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

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

Smell - Peachy. Sweet fruitiness. Some lactic acidity. Oaky and lemony.

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

Mouthfeel - Pretty sour. Medium body and carbonation.

Overall - The blend is better, but the peach is nice.
