Peach SoakPeach Soak
Notes: Soak: our line of sour wheat ales, aged in oak, featuring a variety of single fruit additions. We place a base brew crafted with 60% wheat grist in 600L oak puncheons for 3 months with fermentation duties shared gracefully between lactobacillus and our Native New England mixed culture. Loosely inspired by the cold-maceration process used in winemaking, we blend fruit directly into the barrels to “soak” for enhanced extraction of unique colors, aromatics, and flavors. Delightfully acidic, but not funky, our Soak series is an approachable sequence of wild offerings that we are proud to share. Peaches bring enhanced complexities with slightly tart, yet unsweetened flavor additions. Peach Soak is dry with undertones of oak and wheat.

Much smoother than what I was expecting as I thought the time on this bottle would have increased the acidity of Trillium's New England Wild Culture. Mouthfeel was decent but didn't get much Peach, maybe smooth Apple or Pear if anything. I'm thinking time didn't do any favors to this bottle as I recall liking the biting, tangy sharpness to the other soaks more than this one, although I had always thought this was regarded as one of the better ones. Still an enjoyable sour to sip on.

Lemon, lacto, acetic acid and oak. Maybe getting a little unripe peach. Not very fruit forward. Tart and sour up front gives way to a shorter, semi dry finish. Not bad, but missing the fruit.

Apricot hue and crisp white vanishing head. Brett brett and more brett. Citrus zest. A whiff of funk. Flavors sharply follow the aroma. Subtle peach maybe as it warms. Crisp soft finish.

Hazy bright golden-yellow with a thin bubbly blanket.

Smell is spicy and oaky funk with straw, hay, cracker and sesame.

Taste is tart but smooth peach with pie crust and cracker. Sourness grows powerfully with some acetic notes complemented by green apple, and really sour lemon. This is quite sharp with a dry finish, but starts sticky.

Very refreshing body to this beer from all the Soak series. Light, crisp, clean, and refreshing. Tartness is light and balanced by oak and hints of the fruit. The peach notes and flavor is fairly light and integrates into the base beer.

Didn't expect much from what I believed to be a hop-specialist brewer, so I was taken back.

Really lovely sour here. Waves of peaches with no artificial tastes and plenty of sour. Not some "fruit juice" with little sour, but a quality sour here.

Excited to try future offerings when I can.

Drank this in a sour tasting alongside a Side Project Fuzzy. For comparison's sake, both are absolutely delicious, Fuzzy is a lot more aggressively tart, but Peach Soak holds its own quite well.

Great nose, great flavor, the peach really stands out, and it's tart but not at the level where tartness overwhelms taste. Love this beer. Need more Soaks.
