Stone Fruit Tasting

I don’t want to see peaches or apricots for a while. I still can’t taste anything.

Pizza Boy Permasmile: What the hell is a Pennsylvania wild ale? One that was made by the blood, sweat, and tears of the Amish? Anyways, this beer is pretty good, but I expect it cost something north of $30, which is unacceptable.

Odell Zardi Ale: Not very good.

Night Shift Mystery Weisse: I really liked this beer when it first came out, and it’s still really good. Things have changed, as the beer has become more sour over the last two years or so. It reminds me of sour, green mangoes, and it’s tasty.

Wow I’m bad at taking photos. Thankfully, Quetsche Tilquin is the opposite of the quality of this photo. It tastes fantastic, and since plums are used, it counts in this stone fruit tasting! One of the best beers of the night if you ask me.

de Garde Biere Stone: Wow, the “Biere” series from de Garde just consistently kills it. Big peach and apricot presence but you can still taste the chardonnay barrel, it’s almost SARA like. However, the finish isn’t quite as strong as SARA’s, but it trades that for huge fruit notes.

Casey Peach  The Cut: SO. MUCH. SULFUR. However, after letting my glass breathe for half an hour or so this beer almost tastes like a geuze, but I didn’t get a ton of peaches here.

de Garde Stone Bu: Batch 1! This beer is incredibly sour now, but it still has most of its peach flavors intact. I’m not sure if I have any left, but I think it’s about time to drink these, they aren’t getting better.

Sante Adairius Westly: This second batch tastes way different than the original batch. It’s much less fruity, and way funkier. I am not sure which batch I prefer, but I think I’d love to mix the two batches and have a field day.

Cantillon Fou Foune: This is the new 2015 batch, and it’s honestly a little disappointing. I expected it to blow Westly out of the water, but it wasn’t even close. Neither fruity nor funky, this beer needs time in the hopes that it will improve.

Sante Adairius: Southern Sunrise: Oh wow, I really, really like this beer. Probably the best or second best beer of the night, and better than Westly. Lots of peach, some funkiness, and all that delicious wine barrel finish that I love SARA for.

Ugh, another turd photo.
