Beer Review: Sour Me Peach Sherbert (DuClaw Brewing Company)

Beer Review: Sour Me Peach Sherbert (DuClaw Brewing Company)

Sour Me series variant: Peach Sherbert at Ted’s Bar and Grille

Dipping back into the old beer reviews that didn’t get posted category (like last night’s Athena review) I bring you a yummy beer I had at Ted’s Bar and Grill a few weeks back with Ming after a very late work meeting.

The joy of having a 9-11PM meeting at your work on your day off can only be offset by one thing – beer. Simple as that. That’s thee only thing… ok, not the only thing, but its a very good thing. So after the meeting got over, I convinced Ming to stop at a local bar and restaurant, one thats been featured recently on here (with the Salted Caramel Moo-Hoo review), Ted’s Bar and Grill, located on route 22 (or old Allentown Road) in the no mans land of Skyview in between Grantville and Harrisburg PA.

While he ordered some food, and we discussed work, life, and watched a little of the thursday night Patriots – Giants football game, I grabbed a pint of this to sip and enjoy, and this was pretty tasty.

Beer: Sour Me Peach Sherbert
Brewery: DuClaw Brewing Company
Style: Sour – Other
ABV: 5.5%
IBU: 10
Untappd Write-Up: Light tart notes, big peach flavor upfront, and a soft finish from the addition of lactose.

Aroma is perfectly peach, but not like peach the fruit. Like the ‘created peach’ rather than the ultimate realistic peach. This has the aroma of a peach milkshake or a peach smoothie or peach ice cream. Probably because of the lactose or the over-sweetness of the peach smell.

Appearance is a thick unfiltered orange. Not crazily hazy like some NEIPAs, but it is unfiltered, its orange, and its not fully transparent. There’s floaters and sediment and a lot of action going on in this glass.

Taste is similar to some milkshake IPAs but with a tart finish rather than just pure lactose hop juice. There is definitely an overwhelming peach flavor upfront, but like the aroma, its kind of a non-peach peach. Like a created peach, the factory peach rather than the fruit peach. This isn’t to say its unpleasant, just pointing out the differences between the two. The lactose does make this very smooth, it also softens the tartness a bit, which I think I might have enjoyed a bit more tartness and maybe a tad bit less soft / lactose / smoothness / milkshake like quality.

My Untappd Rating: ****
Global Untappd Rating: 3.94 (as of 10.23.19)
