look: 2.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Cloudy amber with a one finger off white head which fades to 1/4 inch and holds, leaving spotty lacing. Smells like peaches, lemon, biscuit malt and some Brett.

Tastes mostly sweet, due to the peach juice. There is also some bitter lemon flavor, biscuit malt, and a little funk from the Brett. It doesn't seem like there is enough Brett to make this truly tart. There is just enough to pick it up.

Medium bodied with average carbonation, and it finishes dry.Not a very successful beer in my opinion. It may have benefited from some time in the cellar, but probably not very much. I don't think this should be classified as a Saison, but since it is in that category, I am judging it against other Saisons.

Pours a hazy golden with a thin white head. Aroma of peach and biscuit. Wow -- the brettanomyces gives an excellent kick of sour, balancing out the sweet peach and bready malts. A bit cloying in the finish, but this is really tasty and really interesting.

Served in a tumbler.

Gotta love the hot fire being spat from the side of the bottle! This stuff pours a mostly clear sunset gold topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises peach syrup, toasted wheat, light lemon rind, and a hint of Brett-y funk. The taste holds notes of stale caramel, dried maple syrup, plastic-lined peaches, dirty cobwebs, and a kiss of Indian corn. Wow, did things go downhill in a hurry! The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda dry finish. Overall, things were just carried out poorly here. While the mix sounded like a good one, the reality that presented itself on my tongue (and those of a few friends as well) was radically different, a world in which a violent clusterfuck of a party just wouldn't stop, no matter how early the neighbors had to get up the next morning...

Hazy, glowing golden peach in color with a creamy off-white head. Nice retention and lined lacing down the glass. Very pretty.

Sweet peaches lead in the aroma, as I was hoping, along with some biscuit and syrup sweetness, and a tough of a dish rag aroma I don't care for, unfortunately.

The flavor is peach-forward, along with just a whisper of funk, bread and biscuit, syrup sweetness, and again a flavor of wet towel/dish rag, especially at colder temperatures. The unfortunate flavors did seem to dissipate after warming.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Simple, even boring, considering the kitchen sink of ingredients. Tasty enough, but no reason for me to revisit this one.

Poured from a 22 ounce bottle into an Allgash cervoise glass. Stamped 095 12 B-3 0952. Not sure about the classification as a saison, but okay.

A: Light head. Clear, pale gold with mild effervesce. Nothing special.

S: Initially, boring beeriness. Then, some noticeable Brettanomyces and peach nectar. Not too bad.

T: Interesting...Very interesting! I can definitely see the saison, as the funky yeast shines through. The molasses is the next to hit, blackstrap, adding an interesting layer of bitterness with the concomitant sweetness that is only complemented by the peach. However, the added fruit has two dimensions -- the sweet, which is most obvious towards the end and the tart, which pairs excellently with the yeast strain and dominates the midtaste (which I wish lasted just a tad longer).

M: A bit tart, a bit smoothish.

O: I've always sought out Lips of Faith for their curiously-constructed craft beer. They've never let me know. (Well, okay, maybe *once.) Peach Porch Lounger is no exception. I thoroughly enjoyed it! Recommended. Would have again.

22oz bomber into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy golden-orange with a one finger, quickly dissipating white head. Small spots of lacing here and there.

Aroma: Fruity. peaches and pineapple. Slightly herbal and some funky funk going on.

Taste: Starts out sweet and fruity. Peach flavor and molasses mixing with the malts. Gets a little tart and some funk on the back end. The bretta works well. Alcohol here and there.

Mouthfeel: Medium body. A little low on the carbonation. Finish is really dry. Beer has some mild complexity but I like whats going on.

Poured into snifter. Golden, clear appearance with a thin layer of white head. Minimal retention with some lacing. The aroma delivers some funky brett up front along with a bit of musty peach character. Belgian spices come through next along with lemon zest and a bit of tartness. The taste presents some molasses which seems to compete with the brett qualities going on. The fruit is muted, what starts as sweet becomes partially tart and spicy. No one flavor completely takes over as I'm left with a bit of sweetness and a bit of funk. Mouthfeel is somewhat syrupy with moderate carbonation. Overall, I was hoping for much better. The molasses seems to ruin what is going on here.

Interesting. Served at a good temperature with a cream-colored, foamy head that soon settled and a little lace. Color is a clear amber with a variety of bubble trails. Aroma is fruit, yeast, a hint tart. Flavor's like nose, sweet is balanced by a sharp tang and some hop/yeast bitter; peach is a good match here.Good body and carbonation. Finish is like flavor, of average lenght and kind of boozy.

Serving type: on-tap
