Notes / Commercial Description:
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- 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
