Upland Peach Sour debuts

Upland Peach Sour

Upland Peach Barrel-Aged Sour hits shelves this month. The Indiana based brewery has been teasing this release for a little while now.

In fall of 2016, Upland soured fresh peaches from Huber’s Orchard and Winery in nearby Starlight, Indiana. Whole peaches were added to the brewery’s sour ale, barrel-aged for three months.

Gold and straw colors shine upon pouring, with zesty amounts of carbonation. Fresh peach aromas meld with floral and wine-like notes. Wonderful peach flavors follow in the taste, accompanied by refreshing tartness. Finish is dry, with mouth-watering tanginess and peach flavor.

Interesting to note, peaches were the first fruit Upland chose when starting a sour program in 2006.

Upland Peach Barrel-Aged Sour Ale will be available in 750 milliliter bottles and draft in the near future.

Style: American Wild/Sour Ale (w/ Peaches. Oak Aged.)
Availability: 750ml Bottles, Draft.
Debut: Mid-February, 2017

HOT. Flying Dog Carolina Reaper Peach IPA

Flying Dog Carolina Reaper Peach IPA

Flying Dog Carolina Reaper Peach IPA is now a part of the brewery’s “Heat Series.” This hot one is notable. Especially if you love hot food.

It’s all about the Carolia Reaper pepper. You should know it by now as the world’s hottest pepper. It’s ridiculously hotter than Jalapeño. It’s hotter than Ghost Peppers. The brainchild of Puckerbutt Pepper Company’s Ed Currie.

So this isn’t just all heat (and later intestinal discomfort), the brewery added peaches.

 This beer’s sweet peach and juicy hops hit you first and then the Reaper chews you up and spits you out. One to fear, for sure.

The brewery said it best when they said Flying Dog Carolina Reaper Peach IPA goes hard in the paint. That’s a hot, menacing pepper. You won’t soon forget it.

Style: IPA (w/ Carolina Reaper Peppers, Peaches)
Availability: 12oz Bottles
Debut: Mid-August, 2016

6.8% ABV

Flying Dog Brewhouse Rarities White Peach Saison debuts

Flying Dog Brewhouse Rarities White Peach Saison

Flying Dog Brewhouse Rarities White Peach Saison has debuted, a late summer saison with peaches.

Erin and Nate from the brewery’s marketing team, mentioned the idea for this release. As a late summer release, a French-style saison would be nicely nuanced by white peaches. In case you don’t know, white or pale peach is lower in acidity, than a yellow peach, and taste sweeter.

The candy-sweet character of El Dorado hops added a modern twist to the beer, which is already high on our crushability scale.

Flying Dog Brewhouse Rarities White Peach Saison is a 12 ounce bottle and draft limited offering.

Style: Saison (w/ Peaches, Black Peppercorn)
Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft. Limited release.
Debut: 8/12/16

5.7% ABV
