This is TX peach harvest in a bottle.
Saison de Peche is our annual release of barrel-aged rustic wheat beer refermented with whole, ripe peaches from Vogel Orchards in Stonewall, TX.
For Blend3 four different oak barrels were selected to marry with the bright peach character. The first ‘press’ consisted of 100 gallons of beer refermenting with 430lbs of peaches. The second ‘press’ was about 65 gallons and pulled the flavors of skin and fruit. Both presses were blended together and packaged in 23 cases of 500ml bottles and 7 cases of cork-and-cage finish 750ml bottles in early July2020.
