BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Sloop Brewing
New York, United States | website

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from 22oz bomber into a pint glass.

Appearance: very pale golden hue with plenty of haze, yielding a silvery-white appearance. Plenty of floaties in the beer, but that's due to my pour; this beer is bottle-conditioned on lees. Effervescence is huge, and the effect is more of a fizzy soda pop than a beer; head was quite fizzy and dissipated very quickly.

Smell: lightly wheaty with a hint of peach and a mild tartness. A very balanced concoction; I like it.

Taste: light, wheaty malt with a smooth, chalky undertone. Peach works well as an accent and isn't overdone. Sourness is mild but gives enough of a kick to be quite refreshing. I like it.

Mouthfeel: light body but a massive effervescence and a big, if ephemeral, creaminess. I think it is quite good for the style.

Overall: a very refreshing and very drinkable beer. I could quaff gallons of this stuff.

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.
