The Sauer PeachThe Sauer Peach
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.

Thanks to cavedave for the nice BIF beer. Tasted 25 January 2013, reviewed from notes.

Pours a pale orangey yellow, quite cloudy. It has an odd color, like a tangerine drink or something, with that soft orange tint. Thin layer of white head, thanks to a gentle pour; it quickly sizzles away, leaving little to no lacing.

Smell is tart, wheaty, with a twist of peach. All things that I expected, but they work really well together, dancing off each other, one adding highlights as another shines. Really nice.

Taste is clean and crisply citrusy sour. A pronounced peachy sweetness makes the beer all that much better, turning it into a sour-sweet contrast that I really enjoy.

Mouthfeel is delightful. Light-bodied, with a wheaty fuzziness. Carbonation that surges up, keeping things moving, then fizzles and fades. Quite good, and a perfect complement to the rest of the beer.

A darn good berliner weisse. I really like the peach, as the juicy sweetness makes a really nice complement to the citrus sour. Quite tasty.

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.
