Crooked Stave Wild Wild Brett Persica

As part of the Cellar Reserve Society, I received a bottle of Crooked Stave Wild Wild Brett Persica. The beer pours a golden color with a bubbly white colored head that subsides rather rapidly. The aroma consists of vinegar, peaches, brett funk, hay, barnyard, horse blanket, and grass. The taste is puckers at first with lots of vinegar but a wonderful peach flavor on the front end. The beer then switches to a hay and grassy flavor with an excellent earthiness to it. The alcohol content is 7.5% ABV. As far as sour beers goes, this one was fantastic. The peach flavors pushed a slightly sweet agenda over the aggressive vinegar and brett flavors, making for a carnival ride on the tongue.
