A Note on This Beer
Double Mountain’s limited small-batch barrel-aged Cuvee series is a labor of Sour love -- they put extra time and loving care into every bottle. Brewer Matt Coughlin says, “If the other beers we make are our babies, these are our grandchildren. We dote over them and give them all the attention when they come to town.”
Their extensive coddling is obvious in the brand-new Peche Cuvee, a sublime oak-aged Sour Ale bursting with juicy peach essence and the dusty tang of Brettanomyces.
Peche Cuvee starts as Peche Mode, their seasonal favorite ode to peaches, and is then aged for an additional year in French Oak barrels to add depths of woody, wine-like complexity. The award-winning fruited Sour Ale experts at Double Mountain harvest fresh Hood River peaches to impart Peche Cuvee with a natural sweet and tart duality. Aging the peaches for 9 months with Brett gives it a musty Farmhouse funk. Then an extra year in oak barrels mellows out the acidity found in Peche Mode with a mellow nuttiness. With its orchard-fresh stone fruit character and oaky tartness, you’d never guess this dry and delicate creation was 8.7% ABV.
Their famed Kriek series cemented Double Mountain as Northwest master crafters of barrel-aged fruited Sour Ales. The refined Peche Cuvee maintains this trend of excellence -- be one of the few to taste one of these rare, tart, oak-kissed stone fruit gems, because these precious Peches will be snatched up quick!
