Halia is a farmhouse ale aged in wine barrels with whole peaches, resulting in bright, effervescent fruit notes in a soft, hazy body that finishes slightly tart and sweet with the pleasant character of ripe, juicy peaches. Literally meaning “remembrance of a loved one” in Hawaiian, Halia was brewed in memory of the dear friend of one of our brewers who loved peaches.
This is just lovely. Light, plenty of peach, little bit tart and pretty refreshing. The peach flavour is proper peach, nothing synthetic or candy like. The beer is quite dusty, in a woody barnyard way. Hint of funk, bit of white wine. Great balance.
