A Note on This Beer
Taste the juicy impact of 1,200 lbs of fresh yellow peaches in Plan Bee’s Pitz Oak Aged Sour Ale, and you’re taken right onto the farm in the middle of peach harvest season. Brewed on peach pits and juicy fruit for extra stonefruit depth, this one-time batch of only 1800 bottles won't stick around for long.
The farmhouse feeling is as real as it gets -- Plan Bee gets a high percentage of ingredients from their estate in Poughkeepsie, NY, earning the right to call themselves a Farm Brewery. Few breweries achieve this distinction and critics are taking notice -- Plan Bee has big recognition from Beer and Brewing Magazine as a Brewery to Watch.
This brilliant pale yellow brew releases illuminating, tangy notes of peach jam. Aging in Chardonnay and Red Wine Barrels mellows its bright peachy wild sour into the juicy smoothness of Meyer lemons. Plan Bee also ferments it on peach pits to give it extra apricot-like flavors. The minerals from their farmhouse well water give it a vinous sparkle as it jets to a tart and tannic cider-like finish.
Cracking into a bottle of this brew takes you to an old farmhouse porch on a lantern-lit night overlooking a peach orchard with the sounds of crickets. Juicy peach and Meyer lemon acidity beckons you to relax and take it slow and taste every part of New York’s rural countryside.
