Brouhaha Life Is Peachy

Style
Sour
ABV
5.8% ABV

‘Life is peachy’? Gosh, that’s a big call after the couple of years we’ve all had! But I’m a sucker for an optimistic outlook, so I’ll jump on board.

The fact that this peach sour is an opaque orange tells you Brouhaha didn’t skimp on the fruit in this one. And if you aren’t convinced by that, just have a sniff. Life is Peachy oozes with stone fruit aromas and the signature yoghurty vibe you find in Brouhaha’s sours, courtesy of the Maleny Dairies yoghurt culture the brewers use to sour the beer.

An upfront tangy punch hits you in the mouth with all the peach character you can handle, but then it eases off to let the flavours spread across the tongue. It’s not overly sour, but it’ll certainly cut through any greasy food you might care to throw at it.

I didn’t realise until afterwards that this baby kicked in at 5.8 percent ABV - a fair bit bigger than many sours, including Brouhaha’s own core range sour. There was certainly nothing in the taste to give away its strength. So don’t knock back three or four of these smooth operators in a row thinking they’re midstrength. You’ve been warned.
