Alright, if you talk to some 2014 class n00b-tier trader they will tell you “v16 ZOMG IT’S FRUITED DDG!!!” but what’s the real deal?
First and foremost, this is far closer to Spontaneous Cheer than DDG in that it lacks the musky Doesjel/dusty/cheesy/earthy/Herfst aspects. That being said, that doesn’t mean that this doesn’t take headshots and grab fruity dogtags: the kills are confirmed, this is loud AF.
This provides acidity that never becomes too tart or overbearing, a nice lemon zest with a fruity backbone that is more of a fleshy tannic presence on the waft and swallow than an unmetabolized jammy marmalade. Something that would have been amazing in veritas 10 or particularly vertias 12: YOU CAN ACTUALLY DRINK AN ENTIRE BOTTLE YOURSELF. Assuming you dont lose a third of it after you open it. The barrel is seamlessly integrated as is the abv and this is a slightly more puckering version of the inimitable Persica b1.
The peaches are a great compliment to the base beer that I already loved. The golden heritage continues unmolested with a crown jewel, which means that we are in for some stupid 14% abv oud bruin as Veritas 17, EVERY TIME.
This is absolutely worth your time and it is trading at hilariously low levels at the moment. If you have a hilarious chili Prop to flip, transmogrify it into something amazing before those CA dipshits are the wiser.
