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.
