Style: Berliner Weissbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.30%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
This beer is Sloop Brewing’s artistic ale. The Sauer Peach’s complex flavors come from a natural sour culture. This tart flavor is woven with sweet peach nectar to provide your palate with a contrastingly balanced beer. It is light in body, and stands at alc. 4.3% by vol.

One theory holds that the Berliner Weisse style ale originated from the Huguenots passing through the Flanders region of Belgium on their way to Germany. Later, the Huguenots established a community in New Paltz, NY, which is just across the Hudson River from Sloop Brewery. This is our interpretation of their beer.

a hazy orangy pour with two fingers of head which diminished quickly into a thin ring. smells wonderfully refreshing.. lots of lacto sourness comes into the nose immediately, definitely getting some peach, lots of wheat, funky bretty notes. ohhh that tastes excellent.. a subtle sourness/tart flavor of lactobacillus and peach combined. not extremely mouth puckering sour or anything - but just enough to bring out the fruit flavor AND the wheat taste. light in body and high carbonation fits the style perfectly.

this is my first beer from sloop, and i'm impressed. this is a wonderful take on the berliner weisse style, and not to be overlooked. i'll have to check out some of their other brews.

Bottle purchased at Half Time Beverages in Poughkeepsie, New York, and shared with Isaac and Will last night.

Pours a golden orange-ish yellow, with a quarter inch fizzy head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like peaches, lemons, and some dirty sour funk. Smells great.

My usual problem with Berliner is that there isn't a lot of naturally juicy fruit flavor left over, it's just sour and thin. This remedies that wholesomely. Lots of great sour peach flavor, peach skin and peach flesh both, with some hay, lactic acid, lemons, and lots of dirty tasty barnyard funk. It's pretty sour, but not overwhelmingly so, doesn't get old.

This is light bodied, with an airy, spritzy mouthfeel, and a higher amount of carbonation. It's really, really drinkable and quite refreshing, even in November.

This is one of the best beers I've had from New York State. Maybe this batch is better than previous ones, because I feel this deserves a much higher rating than it gets here.

L: Hazy, opaque yellow with a thin filmy head that died almost instantly.

S: Sour peach. Not much else. Maybe some lime, white grape, and honeydew melon, but mostly white peach skins and lactic tartness.

T: White peaches sprinkled in sugar, balanced with an intense, zesty lime and citric acid sourness. White bread malt backbone, balanced with a crisp, apple and pear like tartness and dryness.

F: Thick and chewy, like white bread, lots of wheat, with a spritzy, lemon-lime soda like carbonation that moves the beer quickly across your palate.

O: Fantastically balanced and delicious!
