Intro: A 750ml corked and capped bottle, bottled in June 2020, with a best before date of bottled date +5 years. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A slightly hazy deep red colour with a two fingered very light pink fluffy head that had decent retention but eventually settled to a very nice fluffy cap, while leaving lots of nice lacing.
Aroma: Lightly tart, lemon zest, funky, damp hay, oak, blueberry, with only light notes of black currant.
Taste: Lightly sour, tart, lemon, blueberry, blackberry, light funk, woody, and much like the aroma, only light notes of black currant.
Mouthfeel: Dry, medium to light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Absolutely loved the look, and flavours were good, but black currant didn’t come out as strongly in the aroma or flavours as I’d hoped for.

Odd Breed Fresh Off the Farm with Peaches

Brewery: Odd Breed Wild Ales
Country: USA
ABV: 6.2%
Style: Wild Ale
Other Notes: Wild Ale with Fresh Peaches. 2020 Harvest. Batch 2

Brewer Description: (from bottle) This year’s version of Fresh Off the Farm with Peaches was blended from two turbid mashed wild ales aged 10 months and a Saison barrel aged 14 months. We transferred the blend onto nearly 800 pounds of fresh UF Suns peaches that we picked up fresh off the farm in Fort Pierce, Florida. The result is a beer that is extremely juicy and fruity. Our mixed culture provides a funky and dry finish with moderate acidity.

Intro: A 750ml corked and capped bottle, batch 2, bottled on 11th June 2020. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.

Aroma: Tart, peach dominates, with light funky notes.
Taste: Sour, tart, peach, funky, oak, with a splash of lemon juice.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Very enjoyable as peach dominates both the aroma and flavour. I think it would be interesting if the funk was even stronger.
