Style: American Wild Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

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.

375ml into a snifter. The brew appears a beautiful clear golden yellow color with fizzy white cap. The aroma is lightly peachy and vinous with almost a buttery caramel or vanilla aspect. The taste is tart with lemony essence and faint peach flavor. Its fruity with pleasant mild alcohol warmth. This is tart enough that its effortlessly drinkable an light bodied with modest to effervescent carbonation. Not bad, id drink this again.
