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.

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.

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.
