BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Bruery Terreux
California, United States
brueryterreux.com

Style: American Wild Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.70%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
This limited release barrel-aged sour ale features over 2,300 lbs. of stonefruit from our friends at Masumoto Family Farm. After hand-cutting the juicy, ripe fruit with care at Bruery Terreux, we split a portion of our oak-aged sour blonde ale into two components: one to age a combination of three varietals of peaches (Flavorcrest, Spring Lady and Suncrest); the other to age a combination of four varietals of nectarines (Le Grand, Rose Diamond, Spring Bright and Summer Grand). After both components aged with the fruit and underwent a secondary fermentation from the additions, we blended them back together to achieve the ideal tangy flavor (and a satisfying, fuzzy feeling). Grab a glass and pull up a chair - we present to you Room for More.

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

3.88/5  rDev -10%

750mL bottle acquired through The Bruery's Society. Bottled 11/18/16. Served in my fancy Bruery fluted 2016 Hoarders stemware.

Pours a hazy pale gold with a little less than two fingers of white froth. The bubbly head quickly recedes to a wide swath across the surface, a narrow belt and no lacing.

Smells of pale stone fruit, lightly soured grain, a funky, earthy yeast character and some wet oak.

The flavor comes on bracingly sour. Tart pitted fruit, soured wheat, earthy barrel funk and fruit skins. Zero perceivable alcohol.

The body is very light and refreshing with ample carbonation. Tart peaches and nectarines dance on the palate in the aftertaste.

At first sip Room For More seemed a bit much. As my palate was beaten into submission I decided that The Bruery has what amounts to delightfully fruity, super sour weissebeir.

750ml bottle poured into a snifter appears a hazy pale yellow color with an off-white cap.

This has a super fruity nose of peaches/nectarines. Quite fresh and juicy with a lemony lactic backing and some cereal grains.

The taste is sour like unripe peaches/nectarines and a contrast of lemony lactic notes as well.

This is light in body with modest carbonation. Quite sour yet good with plenty of fruited quality.

750 mL bottle into a Rare Barrel wine glass

This tart, puckering ale displays a light, yellow-orange color and a subdued effervescence. Sharp, funky aromas abound, oaky and earthy. On the palate, these farmhouse aspects are more contained, if not less 'weird', as the flavor profile is fruity and refreshing, and, sharply sour. The avalanche of added pit-fruit (noted from the brewer's notes on the label) is easily parsed, while subtle layers of coriander, lemon-pepper and unripe berries add complexion. A light, effervescent mouthfeel adds to the beer's refreshing drinkability.

The beer might have been better received mid-July instead of mid-January, but it's tasty nonetheless.

I find it strange that the bruery released this in the middle of winter but i want to take advantage of those peaches!

750 into a bruery snifter

looks good in the glass but appears almost overcarbed, super bubbly

nose is full of peaches and nectarines, if that's your bag than this is your bag!

flavor is full of peaches and necternines with some bruery sourness right up front followed by some fruit sourness and oak. finishes quite sour

mouth feel is good, medium thickness for a sour and finishes dry

overall this is a good beer, although not as enjoyable as what room for me was, that one was a bit more balanced just right, or it could be if drinking this guy in january and i had that one july 4th!
