Not surprisingly, it pours a peachy color. It's got a slight haze so it's predominantly opaque, though barely. The head is barely mentionable and lacks any sort of retention.
The smell confused me until I saw this was a saison and I read about the Brett. It then made sense. Funky is the only way to describe it. Has a fruity, cinnamony smell. Very pleasant.
Cinnamon and alcohol with only a smatter of peach. You'd guess the citrus aspect, but may not choose peach. Really, too many flavors going on to pick them all out.
There are layers of feel to this beer. Starts off with an acidy citrus feel. Spices start to kick in mid-sip, along with the funky yeast. In the finish, some spicy bitterness along with some ABV heat.
I didn't know what to think of this. I like peach flavor, high ABV and saisons, but didn't know how they'd all work together. As it turns out, I had nothing to worry about. It's a strange-ish beer, but it all works out.

On-tap @ the River, Whole Foods Boise ID. Served in a tulip.
A: Semi-hazy straw gold, light lacing. Highly carbed it would seem.
S&T: Bready, light peach, hint of spice and funk, faintly tart, a 'hefty' dose of pilsner malt/grain. Faint honey, dry-ish body, Belgian yeast, more funk and banana.
MF: Lighter body, higher carbonation.
O: Really pretty disappointing, I had higher hopes for this one (peach is RIGHT IN THE TITLE, not in the beer apparently). For a saison I guess its ok, nothing special.
Serving type: on-tap
