Batch no: 2021, Bottled on 2/23/22.
Pale, clouded yellow body with a modest head. Head is light and bubbly. Light film is left, a very, very light touch of lace, hardly anything left on the glass.
Great mouthfeel. Feels both lively and light.
Light, fruity acidity on the nose, not necessarily discernible as peach for me. Nice, but somewhat generic.
There’s a lovely, gentle balance about this beer. Sour and sweet complement rather than compete. Gently vying with one another for the spotlight. This is all against the backdrop of a certain effervescent creaminess. Can you say Cresta? (a reference to the 1970s children right there). This is consistent with the base beer, Seizoen Bretta which I LOVE.
It doesn’t taste like an especially Brett based beer to me, rather a balanced sweet and sour experience. This is a little less consistent with the base beer. It’s certainly ‘fruity’, but again I don’t know if I’m picking a specific peach note out of all of this.
A complex beer with a lot going on. Honestly I much prefer the base beer alone and unsullied, but that’s just me. I see nothing gained by the addition of fruit. Still nice, and highly drinkable but for me that’s purely because of the class of the base.
