Peach TartPeach Tart
Notes: Peach Tart is a tart session beer constructed to be a refreshing, easy drinking summer beer with a zippy amount of acidity and a dry body. It is brewed with a significant amount of wheat in the grist bill and conditioned upon a judicious dose of peaches! After resting for several weeks in stainless it is imparted with a tight and spritzy carbonation. Peach tart features tongue pleasing acidity balanced by flavors of under ripe peaches, plain yogurt, lemon curd, and subtle funk. It finishes cleanly, eschewing bracing sourness, with hints of white wheat and cracker malt gracing the palate.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Rated 5 for look without physically seeing the beer for two reasons: the can looks cool and it says specifically to drink from it. No reason to look at this beer or pour it. Perfect mouth feel right from the can. Aside from that - this is delicious. It gives you everything you want from a sour. From tart peach to fuzzy peach skin to smooth peach yogurt. No layer too far with sweetness or bitterness. Go-to for any summer party, beach day, or (as I did) hot tub on a cool NY November evening. I'll be back to Charlton for this one and many others.

It delivers as advertised. Thin head, great aroma, but if you’re not prepared for a sour, picker up. Then relax and enjoy. The only neg is the carbonation and the mouthfeel didn’t really hit the spot. Just sitting out back in the sun with some old friends.

The setting you enjoy your beers in can complement or undermine your experience. Have this deep, well, peachy gold beer in the summer. If you're near water, and there's a warm breeze blowing, all the better. Don't expect a head--it pours flat. But so full of brightness (wheat) and flavor depth, you're searching for peach pulp in the glass. Delicious sweet-sour balance.

16oz. can into a Brookly Brewery snifter.

Real nice clear goldenrod color... so TH DOES KNOW how to filter their beers. Foamy white head too. Nose is tart peach pit, peach gummy, and peach juice. Nice, subtle and simple. Beer opens semi-tart peach. Some sweetness makes me think gummy more than the tart fruit. A touch of pit in the middle and end but this is nicely balanced overall. Simple and drinkable. Body is light with ample carbonation. Prickly and lively on the palate and goes down crisp, puckering and refreshing. Super drinkable. This is a perfect Summer beer.

Although the nose and flavor profile is very simple and straightforward, the body and feel make this one to reach for at the beach or in your lawn chair.

Decanted from a 16 oz (473 ml) can into a Willi Becher pint glass; produced on 05/27/20, code GET THIS PARTY TARTED.
A: Pours an ever so slightly hazy, light light orange color with solid, foamy head formation, brief retention which is decent for the style, and no lacing.
S: Tart with aromas of wet hay (almost barnyard, but pleasantly so, dry grass, wheat grain, and white grapes. Lactic acid is distinguishable in the nose.
T: Dry and tart with peach flavor, but not sweetness, as well as lemon very much in evidence. Little or no bitterness, citrus like acidic and very vinous, especially chardonnay.
M: Light to medium bodied with low carbonation despite robust, initial head formation. Really leaves a refreshingly acidic and vinous finish on the palate.
O: Having tried quite a few flavored Berliner Weiss style beers, so I appreciate this one for its dryness, its fruitiness, its vinous quality, and its simple complexity. Yummy. Worth the trip.

Had this on 2019-10-27 near Pittsburgh, PA from a 16oz canned on 2019-10-09

A - Clear straw-straw gold with a 1-finger white head that drops quickly leaving no lace.

S - Ripe peaches, wheat cracker, hint of hay.

T - Fresh peaches with a tablespoon of yogurt and wheat germ. Grassy spice. Finishes dry and acidic but not sour.

M - Light medium and medium carbonation. Fizzy.

O - Very refreshing and awash in peachy goodness. Worth seeking out.

My first sour from Tree House. Pours clear, gold in color with 1/4 inch head. Taste is big sweet peach and sour mix. More sour than I expected, high carbonation, light bodied. I really like this beer, my only complaint is the smell. Big, clean, sweet peach taste. This is what I would like more sours to be, plenty sour and plenty of fruit taste. Makes me want to try more Tree House sours.

My first fruited sour from Tree House. It is very well-made with no flaws and with the expected wheat + peach flavors and moderate tartness. The only thing that sets this apart as a TH beer is the soft & pillowy mouthfeel. Solid.

Pours a golden transparent hue with good head retention. Who knew TH could brew a beer that dropped clear? Har har. Cereal grain and peach skins (or peaches at the grocery store) on the nose. It's lightly tart with a kiss of peach. It's got this kind of milky character to it, but it is delicate and light. One of these is kind of good.

Picked-up a single can at the Tree House Brewery in Charlton, MA for $3.80. My fifty third brew from these guys. Well, this is certainly peachy and tart, just not my cup of tea, which is why I only got one. Good for the style though, I just don't get the tart beer thing.

L - pours the crystalest of clears. Amber honey. Your typical rice lager, but with a touch more warmth and depth.

S - nails the peach. Very close to what peach flesh smells like, but also borrows from peach-infused Juicy Juice or herbal tea. Hints of apple and orange candy.

T - far more acidic and tart than the nose would suggest. That raw peach goes away a little bit as salt comes into play with funky, tangy, lemon yogurt. If there were peach Warheads (are there?), this would be it.

F - lively and prickly. Peppers the tongue, but once it has its fun, we're met with a fullness that supports this beer nicely.

O - refreshing and simple. Peach juice with a peppery twang and tastefully restrained tartness.

Canned 9.10.19 opened 9.21.19

“Millions of peaches, peaches for me”

Poured into a chalice , thin white foam layer immediately faded, clear golden liquid with streams of micro carbonation

Aroma of fresh peaches

Taste is tart and peachy . Unlike other Berliner Weisse s , not a vinegar / acidic tartness. Crisp , fresh

Low/ no sudsing , not flat but still flavorful . This style is usually more effervescent

Good beer

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 16 oz can into a pint glass.

Pours a crystal clear golden color with 2 fingers of effervescent white head. The head doesn't stick around for long, leaving a few splotches of lacing before settling into a thin film. Bubbles for days.

The aroma is all 'bout dat peach. Fresh peaches and candied peach rings lead the way, followed by some mild funk and wheat bread. Peach for days. Peach forever.

The flavor brings loads of peach rings and peach juice, with some vanilla yogurt and slight funk. There may be the absolute foggiest idea of banana in here before it's washed away by the lactic acid and wheat.

The feel is light bodied with excellent carbonation. Exceptionally crisp and refreshing.

Overall, a great Berliner that comes precisely as advertised. You want peach? This beer gives you peach. It's nicely tart and never too sweet. Very well done.

Canned 08/09/19 “hello 6-pack of confidence”

A delightfully light, drinkable sour/tart ale. Obviously huge peach character with a yeasty, slightly funky feel and finish. Uber-carbonated and super refreshing. It’s a Berliner, not a Wild Ale or a Belgian sour, so I don’t understand why people expect something other than a filtered, fruity kettle sour that’s heavy on the summer flavors.

Picked up at the brewery and shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice crystal clear golden hue with a thin white head that fades to leave no real lacing.

S - Big aromas of sweet peach candy, fresh peaches. There are tons of floral fragrant peaches, candy, jam, peach skin. Tons of stone fruit pits and a little bit of lactic tartness. Flashes of crackers and grains.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with loads of fresh sweeter peaches. Good jammy notes, sour peach candies. Good lactic acid and creamy wheat.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, decent carb, however it's a bit flemmy.

O - Overall this was a solid enough tart wheat beer. Very nice peach notes here. Really enjoyable summer beer.

Purchased this from Treehouse on 8/10/19 and poured it that night. Unlike the previous reviewer I really do like sours. But this one was disappointing. My overall assessment of the taste and feel is that it is reminiscent of a flavored peach seltzer ... and then a beer. Or maybe in the reverse order. The point is that it totally lacks cohesion. It’s two separate tastes that never join. The peach flavor itself is quite candy-like and just refuses to fuse with the underlying lager-like base. I’ve had many fruited sours that I like much more. The description on the can would give the impression that all of this was intended and finely crafted to be the way that it is. But I don’t see how that can be, given the usual, impeccable balance and refinement of their more typical offerings. This one tastes like a bit of an experimental mistake. Don’t get me wrong - I do love you Treehouse. And you can almost do no wrong ... almost.

TREE HOUSE PEACH TART 8/12/19

Acquired at the brewery yesterday. Poured from the 16 oz. can into qa Tree House stemmed tulip.

a; Clear orange with a slight head which receded quickly to nada. No lacing.

s; At first lagerlike (or more appropriately, Berliner Weisselike), then the aroma of fresh peaches builds.

t; Follows the nose with increasing sourness especially in the finish,

m; Lighter side of medium, decent body anda little carbonation tingle.

o; The usual dilemma for a reviewer who normally dislikes the style, to rate the experience or the beer as a representation of the style. For what it is supposed to be it's probably as good as sour lovers may like. But for those who in general don't care for the style, it's tolerable but not very pleasant. The initial peach flavor blast it good, but the sour finish not so much. Not a drain pour, but not winning everyone's repeat business.
