Notes: Standing in the fields of an Adams County farm and dreaming about a peach sour, we hit upon an idea: Let’s leave the fruit on the trees a little longer than usual to coax out as much tangy juiciness as possible. A few weeks later, we trucked 2,100 pounds of overripe peaches back to the brewery and a small army of brewers spent a day cutting out the stones and tossing the flesh into fermenters. Brettanomyces adds a touch of tropical fruit and funk, lactobacillus provides the pucker, and a spell on American oak brings it all home. Sir Peche is here.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a cork'n'cage 12 oz bottle into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Nearly clear golden amber pour with 2 fingers of fizzy white head. Falls fast.. minimal lacing.

S: Tart and astringent. Peach and green fruit.

T.F: Closer to sour than tart... and you can definitely feel the first sip on your salivary glands. Green fruit, peach, apricot, and some lemon zest. A bit of funk and oak... complex... very faint fruity sweetness is in there but quickly overwhelmed and this drinks on the dry side. Strong lactobacillus. Light bodied with fizzy carbonation. More unripened fruit at the finish. Gets better as it warms a bit.

O: A fairly sour peach brew from Troeg's, but if you enjoy the style this one should please. This should not be 'baby's first sour'.

12.7 corked and caged bottle into a tulip. bottled 12/7/17, so about 7 months in the bottle.

hazy orange-apricot colored body with a small white head kept going by good carbonation. average lacing initially.

there is a mild non-citrus fruit aroma

mouth puckering fruity taste, tart, dry, not really noticable as peach, but still a good drink.

mouth between medium and full, finish dry and tart, but after a while, the mouth begins to water again. nice.

overall, nice wild fruit ale, about in the middle of the Troegs splinter series.

Pale straw gold, quarter inch soapy head, champagne carbonation. Aroma is flat, and rustic in a not good way - cork, driftwood, dry yeast. A little punch of peach upfront but it goes quickly leaving those huskier earthy aromas. Taste bounces back, fortunately - not tremendous expression on the peach but it is there in a fliting tropical way, lacto is measured and adds a nice tart kick without being a bully, oaky vanilla on the backend, finishes a little limp, could be drier. All in all a decent sour but has some weaknesses.

Look- pours a murky looking pale orange/straw color w/a big white head that quickly fizzes away. Lot of little white floaties.

Aroma- sweet peaches up front followed by a lactic, sour-milk note and a hint of musty hay at the end. As the beer warms, the lactic note mellows out a bit

Taste- starts off with a bit of peach followed immediately by an intense lactic sourness that lasts and lasts. a little bit of musty hay comes out in the finish

Feel- light/medium bodied and highly carbonated

Overall- The lactic sourness really overwhelms everything else in this one. I enjoyed drinking it, but i wish the peach & brett were a little better represented in the nose and taste.

Really sour on the front. It would be overwhelming for anyone who doesn't like sours. But it was very enjoyable for someone who loves sour beers. The finish was very peachy. I felt as though I could taste the pit and fuzzy skin because of how peachy it was. This was nearly a perfect sour
