Best Quote During Tasting
I'm a 33 year old man who listens to songs intended for 15 year olds who are mad at their parents.
|Some sulfur comes out as soon as you put your nose to the glass. The aroma is that of a tart peach with some funk right behind it. The rye malts used are very apparent here as well (rye carries with it a "spicy" aroma) and there's definitely some dry oak. I also get hints of white pepper as well but it's not very bold and it's the last piece of this puzzle.|
|The beer pours an orange/gold with a frothy white head made up of small and large bubbles. The head is dense and the lacing it leaves behind makes webbing on the glass.|
|The aroma was a good indicator of what to expect in the flavor. Again, there's a big, tart peach thing going on but this time it's also accompanied by a little bit of mango and even some cherry. There isn't much "funk" from the yeast but there is just a little bit of earthiness behind it. For as tart as is it, the beer is fairly sweet, too. The oak you can pick up is somewhat sweet and the beer finishes dry.|
|The body is medium+ and almost full carbonation is just under medium. The acidity is big and lends to the cutting sensation of the carbonation which also helps get through the bigger body.|
|I did not expect this one to be as fruity as it was. The peach was big and the cherry that showed up in the finish were undeniably there and wonderfully delicious. The acidity, much like some of the other Bruery Terreux beers we've reviewed was quite big. This would make a great apéritif because you'd be able to stack some food and less sour beer on top of it throughout your meal. The one thing I enjoyed most (aside from the fruitiness) was the full body. This is one I'd definitely bring as a gift for the host of a party, assuming they were willing to crack it open ASAP to get the party started.|
