On tap at the Oak Cafe. Pours a cloudy golden-orange color, kind of pale, no real head to speak of other than a thin white film that hugs the edge of the glass; minimal lacing. Aroma was, of course, heavy with peaches, but it was balanced out cleanly with a heavy dose of yeast. Some booze comes through on the nose as well, but not harshly so. Taste was kind of weird for me - at first, I wasn't a big fan of it. Peach hits a little too abrasively and is almost a little too sweet, kind of distracting to the rest of the beer. As it warmed up a bit, it got much better. Some alcohol came out and really helped to balance the peach. Also tasted some apricot and pear. Very slight clove and bubblegum were detectable, mostly likely due to the Belgian strain of yeast used. The mouth is left with fading notes of sweetness and yeast. Thin-medium in body, medium-heavy carbonation.
This one is still weird for me. The latter half of it wasn't too bad, but I didn't like it at first. Not completely awful, and perhaps I could evolve to enjoy this one over time, but at this moment, I'm not really digging this one. At all.

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.
