Wicked Weed Brewing Nectarphilia - Farmhouse Ale With Peaches - Burial Beer
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Wicked Weed Brewing Nectarphilia - Farmhouse Ale With Peaches - Burial Beer. I picked this bottle up at Stella Brew (here) in Winston-Salem, NC. They have an excellent selection and we’re very helpful helping me pick out some local “must have” beers to bring home. If you find yourself in the area stop in, buy some beverages and tell them that Mark from NorCal Beer Blog sent you!
From the Wicked Weed Brewing website: “Brewed with Riverbend pilsner malt and raw wheat from Carolina Ground this neighborhood collaboration is hopped with Nelson Sauvin, Amarillo and Mandarina Bavaria. Aged on Carolina peaches, white blossoms, and hardwood from the heart of the tree, this farmhouse ale is finished with wild house culture. From our little city-block to your glass: cheers.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a hazy golden orange color with the thinnest of thin white head that dissipates immediately leaving hardly any lacing.
Aroma: Peaches way up front, some apricot, funk, sweet malts, slight oak and lemon.
Taste: Sweet, tart and juicy peaches, biscuit and grainy malts, yeast funk, citrus, slight oak and earthy notes.
Overall: Smooth and refreshing, Wicked Weed Brewing Nectarphilia is a fantastic beverage. This 7% ABV offering is a must try for fans of the style.
