Floating, Pickled, Peaches, Pass

Nyssa gushes from the bottle and pours a very cloudy straw yellow beer with a fizzy carbonation that leads to no head. Lots of very large peach chunks (I stopped counting after 40) in suspension bob up and down like a lava lamp. Soft peach aromas are joined by some oaky and funky cidery notes. Very sharp, acidic, astringent, and bitter with what appears to be a hefty dose of acetic acid. Vinous and oaky flavors struggle to be noticed. Mildly earthy, bready, and yeasty, too. Peach? Sure, it's very peachy, but more like pickled peach juice. Any honey subtleties are destroyed. It's impossible to take this beer seriously, especially with pickled peach floaties in your mouth.

As reviewed in BeerAdvocate magazine #116 (September 2016).
