Drink of the Week: Smuttlabs Smoked Peach Short Weisse

SMUTTLABS_label_smoke_peachLike sour beers? Then today’s Drink of the Week is for you. A recent release from the experimental arm of Portsmouth, New Hampshire’s Smuttynose Brewery, the Smuttlabs Smoked Peach Short Weisse stands in welcome contrast to the sea of dark, wintry beers we’ve been drinking lately. A wave of fruit-focused tartness slowly shifts into more concrete flavors of fresh peaches and herbaceous hops, while roasted malts offer a toasted creaminess on the finish. It’s not as smoky as its name implies, but we wouldn’t have it any other way.
