Nectarine Golden Ale

pFriem Family Brewers, Hood River OR

Pale gold with a little haze, this barrel-aged beer begs to be served in stemware to better appreciate its lustrous color and inviting aroma. A bit of tangy acidity on the nose is soon joined by notes of bright nectarine, soft apricot, delicate wildflowers, and a zip of lemon. The flavor, which is juicy and moderately tart, bursts with fresh stone fruit and a slight animal cracker sweetness, along with Sauvignon Blanc barrel character that blends in subtly and seamlessly. In short: Spritzy, summery, and positively special. 

Price: $11.99  | 7.1% ABV
