O’so Brewing Company - Arbre Qui Donne
Serving Temperature:44–52° F

We have no idea which of these is our favorite now. O’so Brewing’s Arbre Qui Donne gives a wholly unique experience after the three above, and, once again, that fruit character shapes the entire focus of this beer, highlighting ripe peach character alongside stellar tart structure.
As with the three above, this pours with pillowy off-white foam and great lacing. This shows a bright honey-golden color, with a modest haze such that it tends to glow. The aroma’s full-on, vibrantly tart peaches from the start, a zesty squeeze of lemon and lime underneath. The wood character’s a bit softer, providing notes like toasted almonds and marzipan—excellent beside the peach core. There’s acidity to spare, fruit character to spare. It goes all-in on fruit.
Peach sour beers tend to be some of our very favorites, and Arbre Qui Donne delivers such a complex impact of fresh peaches and tartness that this one in particular disappeared from our glasses. Mouthwatering acidity, boldly sour lemons, and a bit more of a barrel character than the aromatics predict. There are some firm tannins and almond-inclined oak present, a warm flourish beneath the central impact of fruit. This gives such a massive impression from its peach additions. Pow! Peaches! All up in your domepiece! And they’re friggin’ delicious.
As with the others, the acidity gives this some sturdiness for the cellar, but some of the fresh peach character may dissipate with time. Peach cobbler and vanilla-bean ice cream seems like an obvious option, given the core notes here, as does the almond-iness of Italian frangipane. Working within that peach and apricot emphasis, look to pork tenderloin or grilled chicken.
