Beer #298 is Brainless On Peaches Belgian Style Ale by Epic Brewing Company. This beer is from Salt Lake City, Utah and is brewed in the style of a Fruit Beer with an ABV of 10.5%. According to the label, this is a limited release and I am holding one of 1800 bottles of this. This bottle is release #4 and was brewed on January 15th, 2010. Looks like this beer has been doing a bit of aging.
It poured a hazy gold with a bit of orange color to it. The head was huge and off-white and fluffy. It left some nice lacing in the glass. It was very fragrant with peaches, honey, yeast, and grapes…very much like wine. It reminded me of wine with the taste of grapes and peaches. It was slightly sweet. Those familiar Belgian yeast flavors were also here along with a bit of wheat near the end. This was highly carbonated with a medium body bordering on being a bit syrupy. The high ABV was hidden quite nicely.
I love peaches and I liked this quite a lot. This beer is a year and nine months old and according to Epic’s website, it should age really well. I may just get another bottle of this if I can still find it and cellar it for another year or so. Peach lovers…try this one on for size.
