This was a cloudy, white-ish peach color. It poured out of the growler with a short lived fizzy head.

Wow, what a peach showcase! The nose is syrupy peaches, both tart and sweet with hints of warmth. On the palate as well this is peach first and beer a distant second. There is a nice balance between the tart and sweet peachiness. This drinks like a peach liqueur diluted with peach juice. The mouthfeel is syrupy and heavy.

Glad this was on when we came through, there is nothing else like this out there.

The 2014 batch has more carbonation and comes off as more tart than previous batches. Extremely drinkable and very delicious.

Pours a clear, orangish color with decent amount of white fluffy head with little retention.

The scent is of dominant peach, some wheat is apparent also.

The taste is not as strong as the nose led to believe, it is of significant peach but not overwhelming. There is also some notes of wheat.

Light body, pretty crisp feel with moderate carbonation.

This was a pretty decent beer, not really one of my favorites here, but not bad.

Review from notes. Had on tap at Selin's Grove.

A: Pours an orange/peach color with a small white head on top that reduces to a ring on top, minimal lacing.

S: Very peachy aroma, ripe peaches at that mixed some wheat, a little sweetness, and a very faint tartness.

T: Again, very peachy, sort of like peach juice, and I like it a lot. Similarly sweet, slightly sugary, with a little bit of wheat and faint spice notes.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, very easy drinking.

O: One of the best beers I had on my road trip cross country, and it was the first one I had! Tons of peach flavor packed into this beer.

This poured out as a clear looking orange color with a white head on top that fades rather quickly. There is no head retention or lacing on this. The smell of the beer gives off some sweet peach aromas and some subtle hints of malt. The taste of the wee gives off some tart and sweet peach flavors. The mouthfeel is a good at first but gets a little syrupy toward the end. Overall this beer is really good at first but after a while it starts to get a little too sweet. A glass or two of this would be awesome, but after several it's get to be a little much. Still good though.

Served on-tap at the Brewpub.

A - Pours just like a fuzzy peach would look with a very small white head, dissipating down to a thin ring around the edge of the glass, leaving very little lace down the glass.

S - Smells of fresh, ripe peaches from start to finish. Hints of pale malt, spicy yeast and some light sugary sweetness round things out. This one is all about the peaches, making a bit one dimensional in the nose.

T - Starts off with a ton of juicy, ripe peaches that never really fade away. Hints of spicy yeast, pale malt, sugary sweetness and some orange marmalade. Balance of tart to sweet is pretty good from start to finish. Finish is sweet with some lingering dryness, not sticking around for very long.

M - Medium body with moderate to low carbonation. Smooth, sweet feel from start to finish. It goes a touch watery toward the end of the glass.

O - The two year wait was a grueling one but it was worth it, I could drink this beer all day. If you like peaches this is your beer. It is very easy to drink and packs a TON of flavor into a small package. Get some while you can!

Fair warning given. I LOVE this beer. Many fond memories of drinking it with my daughter and her friends from nearby Susquehanna University. Really missed it last year when the peach crop wasn't up to snuff to make this excellent seasonal, Review from 9/28/12.

Served in a tulip glass from the tap

cloudy, hazy, thick apricoty colored brew. Small head, which doesn't last. But who cares about that?

Smell? Peaches. Peaches are goooddd.

Taste. It's slightly sweet, slightly more tart, just a lovely beverage. Booze is there, but you don't notice it. Can forget you're drinking a beer. Might be worth trying as a breakfast fruit juice with your bacon and eggs

Mouthful - fulll, generous, assuming you can resist the temptation to swallow and get on to the next mouthful.

Overall, its ok.

No I kid of course. If you are within 200 miles, get your butts down to the Selinsgrove Brewpub before the Saison Peche runs out. Call ahead. I grabbed a growler, which didn't last the weekend. Will be back next weekend

L- Hazy golden brew topped with a thin off white head. Head fades quickly and leaves no lacing on the glass.

S- Peaches, hints of malt, yeast, and caramel.

T- Peaches, there must be a ton of peaches used to brew this, sweet but not over the top. Slightly tart final note to keep the sweetness from becoming too much and providing a nice counterpoint. Finish is not overly sweet or dry and it has a nice feel with a lingering final note of tart peaches.

M- Medium in body and low in carbonation, goes down easy. Don't spill any on your hands it is super sticky, just like peach juice.

O- A great seasonal treat. I would not want to drink this all the time, but I could drink this for an entire night. The 5.5% ABV would make it an easy to do just that too.

And its back. SGB's peach fruit beer that was MIA last year due to an unfavorable peach harvest. Poured from a growler into a couple goblets and shared with the family. It appears a hazed golden orange with a white frothy cap that is quick to fade (just like the other SGB fruit offerings.) Faint patchy lace sticks to the glass and a swirl revives a finger of bubbles back to the surface.

The smell is strikingly strong with a spice of clove. Peach juice with earthy quality like grass and yeast mixes with a touch of alcohol. The fruit is certainly there in the nose with a complenting complexity brought forth by a yeastiness that is similar to their triple.

The taste includes spices similar to clove coupled with fresh juicy peaches. It integrates with a mild earthiness and tart wheat flavor. More sips bring out a tartness similar to peaches that arnt quite ripe enough while other sips are contrastingly sweet and seemingly over-ripe to caramelized. There is a minor herbal hop touch with some fusel tinges of alcohol and lots of yeasty quality filling the void and confirming this as a fruited beer.

This is a heavier side of medium bodied brew with a light level of carbonation. It is creamy smooth and nicely drinkable. I really enjoyed the layering of peach flavors here but found myself distracted a bit by the clove which seemed over-done and out of place. This was long awaited for me as it was not available last year and I missed it the year before. Has it really been 3 years since I last tasted this? Ouch.
