From a 22 oz bottle into a tulip.
A-The color is golden honey with just a slight haze to the liquid. The head is a decent one-finger-plus plume of off-white foam. Unfortunately, the head goes away pretty quickly and doesn't leave much in the way of lacing. Very little (if any) carbonation to be seen.
S-You certainly get peaches...and a little sweet yeast...but the peaches are off just a bit. I also detect hints of dry straw and funk. Quite sweet.
T-The taste mostly follows the nose, but in a bad way. The peaches are very present, but they have an almost rotten character to them; like sour milk. The alcohol is also there, but (again) not in a good way. It contributes to the sour/rotten character.
M-The beer I had was pretty flat. Medium body. This beer lacked that typical saison effervescence.
O-I was pretty disappointed with this. I'm not sure where NB went wrong, but I'll take a pass on this one. Surprisingly, my wife seems to enjoy it...at least it was not a total waste.

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
