STARKELLER PEACH

BEER STYLE: Berliner Weisse

ALCOHOL BY VOLUME: 7.2%

CHARACTERISTICS: Starkeller Peach is hazy, golden orange in color and bursts with the aroma of ripe peach skin. It is full-bodied and fairly dry, with the sweet, tart flavor of peaches, lemons and nectarines.

Sixteen months in the making, Starkeller Peach was first brewed with an extensive decoction mash schedule, fermented with an authentic mixed culture and aged for nearly a year before 5,500 pounds of peaches were added and it was allowed to ferment for an additional four months.  The resulting beer has pronounced tropical fruit aromas, a tart peach flavor and an intensely acidic, fruity character.
