Beret with Peaches and Vanilla by The Bruery Terreux

Rating: 6/6

Beret with Peaches and Vanilla by The Bruery Terreux is an 8.9% ABV Imperial Wit ale brewed with spices and aged in oak with Raspberries, Peaches and Vanilla.

Label:
Peachy – Keen – Sweet

Commercial Description:
Beret has been a staple in our lineup since Bruery Terreux launched in 2015. While the classic release of our spiced, imperial sour witbier aged in oak with raspberries has an enduring and endearing sense of style, we felt it was time to start weaving in a few new threads. Peaches and vanilla provided a peachy keen sweetness to cast the fruity personality of the refreshing, piquant ale in an all new artistic light.

==Introduction==

Released to all Bruery Societies, this is the Beret Raspberry sour but with peaches and vanilla. Last year’s version was pretty awesome and it was a sour I haven’t had in a long time. While sours from the Bruery have been getting better as the years go by, I still have to try the sours before I get them. Unless it has some ingredients I really like, then I will get it but since this came with the Preservation package, it was a great way to gage the beer. You may actually get this one by purchasing on their online store www.thebruerystore.com while they still have it. Let’s take a look at this, cheers!

Aftertaste:
Finishing dry with over layering stone fruit peach, raspberry, vanilla, whipped cream hints, white grapes and oak. No alcohol in the taste, hazy golden peach medium body, crisp, refreshing, mild creamy and smooth mouthfeel along with moderate drinkability.

Overall:
Liquid Tart Fuzzy Navel in a bottle! This sour was better than I expected and this is definitely the sour to get. While the sour aspects are overlying due to the fruit, the sweetness of that same fruit is what I love and the vanilla works with it super well. I am not sure if this will reach details but this one is a recommendation worth seeking.

Anime Corner:
Lina Inverse from Slayers was used in this pairing as she seems to fit greatly with the colors of the label and the beer overall. Lina is a character I have not used in a long time and a favorite of mine. Since I have done a lot of Bruery beers, doing the pairings with at least one Anime character that I know of or fits well is definitely an accomplishment.
