2.93/5  rDev -15.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

22oz bottle poured into my Allagash glass. Golden amber in color with a frothy white head covering the top of the beer and sticking to the edges of the glass.

The peach juice is immediately noticeable in the aroma giving it a mix of sweet and tart fruit flavors. The zesty lemon is there as well. As you get a little deeper into it the grits start to become a little more evident with some notes of sweet corn. The molasses is also in the background and makes it feel a little bigger and bolder overall. interesting mix of flavors to it.

The taste has some slightly sour and tart flavors coming out of the peach juice. The zesty lemon comes through a little in the finish. I get some yeast spice to it in the finish as well. The molasses again doesn't add a lot of flavor, but definitely gives it a big heavy feel to it.

Overall, it was a decent beer but not a great one. The lighter peach juice and grits flavors just didn't seem to go well with the big, heavy, molasses mouthfeel. It seemed like it was trying to be both a light, easy drinking beer and a heavy imperialized beer at the same time and it just didn't work for me.

22 oz. bomber,

A: Pours a pretty bright orange with a fizzy light white head. OK head retention, which leaves some small spots of lace.

S: Sweet fermented stone fruit, some light lemon notes, smells like it'll be a bit cloying.

T: Clear peach flavour upfront. Sweet orange and Lemonhead candy midway through. Grassy, lightly hoppy finish still with a bunch of fruit and syrup.

M: Medium to full-bodied, with a frothy yet crisp at times carbonation. Some minor ethanol throughout. A tad cloying with a bit of acridity in the aftertaste which wasn't fun.

O: New Belgium calls it 'Lounger', but this isn't really easy drinking as the name would suggest. This is quite a big beer, it is 9.4% after all. An interesting beer, I like the peach and the kitchen sink of ingredients, nevertheless, it doesn't make for the most tasty or enjoyable brew. I'd say worth a try, but the bomber price is too much, maybe on-tap.

Frothy white head grows fast and large, but settles quickly. Brew is clear yellow in color. Zero lacing.

I get lots of horseblaket in the nose alongside slight lemon and orange peel. I smell no peach, just an abundance of fermented sugar.

Kinda bland tasting, but for a 9.4% Saison, it's a kick in the ass. I get no real fruit flavors as claimed on the label. I get tons of candy sugars and biscuity-bread flavors. Carbonation is too high for my liking with the style...

Meh. I've had better, more memorable Saisons, but I've also had way worse. Peach Porch is very middle of the road, IMO. Take it or leave it, I won't be back for more...but I'm glad I tried it.

From Triangle Wine in west Cary.

Golden pour, clear, with some hints of peachy orange. No head. No lace.

Nose is brett funk with a good bit of tropical fruit. Peach is there, but that's not what stands out. Mango, papaya, maybe even a bit of coconut all come in stronger than the hint of peach.

Hits with a mild tropical fruit flavor, then the brett kicks in and finishes with a decent sour flavor. Some tart peach from the syrup, but not as much as I hoped for. Mango and papaya carry over from the nose. Definitely feel the abv.

Feel is a bit on the thick side. Syrup and a bit of oiliness. Guess that has to be there to support the abv.

I'm a big fan of the series, but I'd probably pass on this one again.

Pours an almost clear deep gold color with 2 fingers of bright white head that lingers awhile settling to a thin cap on top of the beer and some minor lacing on the glass.

S- Some funky Belgian yeast up front, faint aromas of tart, sour unripe peaches.

T- Disappointed that peach is not the dominate flavor here, there are the flavors of a typical brett beer here, but I really expected more peach. Peach flavor is present, just not as much or as spot on as I would like. It has plenty of malty, biscuity flavors, and plenty of good brett flavors of wet hay, and funk.

M- Medium body, with a moderately high amount of carbonation. I would like to see more carbonation to this one.

O- Not one that I would buy a second bottle of. This is the first LOF beer that I've disliked to the point that I would not drink it again. Just seems pretty average. I've had plenty of LOF series that were way better.

On tap at the Better Weather Fest at Golden Road Brewing in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a hazy golden-yellow with a foamy beige head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, yeast, peaches, and some Brett aromas. Taste is much the same with a mild funky finish on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

On tap, poured into a plastic cup at Tour De Fat in San Francisco.

a.) Had a great orange/amber look to it. Not much head.

s.). Surprisingly, not much aroma on this brew. A faint peach smell present, but not overwhelming.

t.) Very flavorful, to the point that I think you'll either love it or hate it. I'm not usually one for flavored beers, but I thought this was pretty good. The peach taste pretty much mutes out any hops or grain flavor, so it's not something to have 3 of, but for something different, it works.

m.) Because the peach flavor was so strong, it almost made it difficult to focus on anything but that. The overall mouthfeel seemed pretty neutral: not so thick that it was noticeable, but not so thin that it seems washed out and unpleasant.

If flavored beers aren't your thing (they aren't really mine, either) I doubt this beer is going to be the one to convert you. But if you're tired of IPAs and pale ales and want to switch it up, this one definitely works.

Poured from 22 oz. bottle into a New Belgium Globe glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy copper golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. About two fingers of off white head that quickly recede into a few thin patches. Lacing is fairly light.

Smell: A sweet and fairly tart aroma. Big scent of peaches upfront with some citrus lemon and orange. Some funky Belgian yeast, Brett, and earthy grass. Sweet molasses, candied sugars, and bready malts. Definitely has that typical Saison scent with that earthy farmhouse element. A pretty sweet smell, but not cloying. Pretty interesting.

Taste: Like the smell leads, a peach forward Saison with lots of grassy funk. Belgian yeast and tart peaches upfront are followed by good notes of citrus orange and lemon zest. Brett along with some molasses and Belgian candied sugars. Lots of earthy grass and barnyard funk. A little bit of pepper. Some bready malts add some sweetness in the background with some notes of caramel and biscuit. Sweet but actually nicely balanced by the funky spice. Quite good.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Slightly syurpy but very smooth. Can't really notice the high alcohol content.

Overall: A pretty good Saison. I was fearful that this would be sickly sweet, but its far from that. Its sweet but fairly balanced. The peach and Brett add a nice and interesting twist.

A- A slightly hazy golden copper with a small white head.

S- Tart peaches, some lemon, funk, earthy spices.

T- Very malty, mainly sweet malts, fairly peachy, some funk, some molasses, touch of alcohol but not off putting. Flavors are missing some balance.

M- Fairly smooth, medium body.

O- I am enjoying this a lot more as this warms up. Not my favorite Lips of Faith beer, but still good. Probably will pick up again.

Review from notes.

A: Pours an orange body with slight golden tints to it with a small off-white head that has decent retention. A small cap forms on top and random bits of lacing cling to the glass.

S: Some light peach upfront with a malty sweetness on the back, presumably from the molasses. Slight funk mixed in.

T: More peach in the beginning mixed with a bit of citrus. This is followed up by a pretty heavy malt sweetness. There is a bit of straw/mustiness mixed in as well.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: Not a bad beer, but was hoping for a bit more in terms of the peaches. The entire time I drank it, I wanted the beer to be much tarter as well.

some how the brightness of the honey colored body shines thru the cloudy appearance it has while being poured. a fingers worth of bright white sudsy head slowly settles into a crescent moon shape on top of the beer, lacing is nill. lemon and peach are the first to assault my nose. bottle says that brett is in ther but my nose can't pick it up. Taste is really tart and sweet. along with the fruits, the molasses adds to the sweetness. mouthfeel seems a tad heavy to me for a saison, probably the molasses i'm picking up on. it's nicely carbonated and has a slight stickieness to it. once again i couldn't tell that there was brett in there at all. wish it was more mouth puckering tart and less sweet. none the less it is still very drinkable and refreshing.

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.

22 ounce bottle - $7.99 at Lucky's in Woodstock, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a hazy, pale golden body with a small, quickly receding, white head.

Smell: Slender malts enveloped in fragrant peach juices and noted alcoholic waftiness, with light notes of sweat, citrus, and, to my surprise, even a bit of the molasses with some dedicated sniffing.

Taste: Pale malts with a touch of baguette, dried straw particles. Slight honeyish sweetness alongside the bold peach juice taste. Citrus burst midway. You've got a bit of tartness here, but it seems more a product of the peach juice than any brett action. A little molasses, a little spiciness that's aided by the ramped alcohol heat which gives a clear hint of schnapps on the crispish, drying finish. Subtle acidity with the continued alcoholic heat in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: A fair brew that's interesting enough, though I would've preferred it with less alcohol, as there's a little hotness present. Don't feel particularly like a saison, how about just Belgian Hodgepodge?

No freshness dating.

A= Pours a nice looking straw color with a tiny half finger of active bubbly head on it that holds little lacing and retention. Looks like a soda.

S= I thought I smelled a little tartness and some funk to follow but as I stick my nose in it it's more of a funk all around. There is of course peach aroma in it and a little sweetness is noticed. Smells sort of estery like your typical saison.

T= The taste is somewhat mellow. There is a lighter peach flavor and a more dominate sweetness that I assume is mollasses. The funk is again there and the tartness is almost totally gone. The finish is very funky yet still very sweet.

M= High carbonation

O= This isn't a bad beer but it's not a great beer either. It almost seems like the flavors were a little too mixed up and one to many flavors was attempted to be imparted. The flavors meld together instead of making something delicious they all sort of die out over eachother. Not bad but not really what I was hoping for.

A: Pours a glowing peach color in the glass. A nice one finger foamy white head forms quickly and shows good retention. Leaves some patchy rings of lace.

S: Actually smells pretty good. Earthy Belgian yeast with a hint of peach smoothie. Some hints of vanilla bean, faint lemon peel and a bit of banana bread.

T: The hell??? Some faint saison flavor upfront but carried by a massive, syrupy mouthfeel that leaves nothing but a thick Belgian yeast and a bit of a metallic taste in the mouth. Clove, lemon seed and peach pit make an appearance on the finish with just the slightest bit of sweetness at the end. Way too heavy, way too bitter and way too hard to lounge with. This is a miss.

22oz bomber poured into a pint glass. Picked this one up for about $9.

Pours a darken golden color with a redish tint. Head is small maybe, half a finger and an off-white in color. Initial smell was of peaches but as I drank it I got more Belgian yeast and less fruit. Taste was very little peach, I actually get some banana. Also, I feel that it is some normal saison flavors mixed with an off bitterness, that doesn't go well. Mouthfeel is nothing special if anything the aftertaste is not pleasant and the carbonation feels odd in the mouth.

This tasted very off from the other reviews. Not sure if the bottle I had was bad, but it sure tasted that way to me. This one was very close to a drain pour.

Overall, this has been my least favorite of the lip of faith series and I would not bother trying this one if you haven't already.

22 oz bottle. Pours yellow orange with a medium creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is peaches, musty yeast and brett.

The flavor is sweet citric peaches, champagne-like alcohol and some musty peppery brett. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with bubbly carbonation.

Overall, a very nice balance of peaches and brett. I like it.

Pours very pale golden with slight haze. Thin layer of white bubbles, even with an attempt at vigorous pouring in the latter stages of the pour. Nose has a tingly, perfumey peach character. On the palate, there's a mingling of sour and peach flavors that is medium thick, not quite syrupy. Perfume takes over more as it warms. Good carbonation tingle on the finish that leads to a tart, peachy aftertaste. Hard to get excited about any particular element of this beer, or the parts together as a whole. I suppose they get kudos for concealing the insanely high abv.

I hesitated to purchase this since it was $9 and I wish I had listened to my instincts. This was not bad its just overpriced, should have been $5.99. Orange color, short head. The smell was interesting syrupy, yeasty, and then a real blast of brett, hoggy. I found the smell to be the best part just because I was trying to figure out what all was going on with it Flavor was sort of syrupy, hint of fruit, not a strong peach component, sort of average. Lips of Faith beers are very hit or miss for me, I've had some real disappointments (transatlantique kriek, imperial berliner weisse,) and some really fantastic beers (super IPA, fresh hop IPA, cocoa mole, eric's ale, le terroir, tart lychee).

22 oz bottle poured into a New Belgium globe.
9.4% ABV, date code printed in screened label.

I've read G.Love is a huge fan of craft beer. Another cool beer/music collab from New Belgium!

A - Finely hazed, this bright golden orange beer shimmers with color. Hey, it even looks like a peach! The densely packed bubbles which rest on the beer, fed by constant carbonation streaming from the glass' nucleation point, leave thin wispy lace trickling down the glass as it recedes.

S - Peach Porch Lounger opens with a bold dry aroma that's reminiscent of a Belgian farmhouse ale and almost whisks you away to the backwoods-y, beat up porch depicted on the label. White pepper and fine clove spice notes follow with a squeezed peach juice undertone. A touch of toast emerges, but aside from a pale base, the maltiness coming through has a pilsner-like sweetness which fades into the musty, dry finish nicely. As the beer warms, a subtle English-hopped earthy aroma opens up, really adding to the already natural, earthy nose.

T - Quite similar to the aroma, only unexpectedly more pronounced, Peach Porch Lounger takes a sudden twist. Foreshadowed by mild musty funk in the aroma, Brett comes in to play in a big way in flavor, opening with a bolder musty, dry funk that's akin to that dingy corner of the basement everyone has ignored. Take that as you will. White pepper, grey clay, wet rocks, and clove find their way in from a more subtle Belgian yeast strain which, along with earthy English hops, dries out the palate tremendously. While absent in aroma, there's a gently nod to molasses in flavor with just a drop adding complexity to the finish. Despite the name, I find peach is tertiary in flavor, finishing out with a light squeeze of leftover juice. With all that's going on here, it becomes quite easy to ignore the sweet malt base which adds plenty of complexity all it's own.

M - At almost 9.5% ABV, the alcohol hides surprisingly well in this beer; phenols and heat totally absent. What does show from the big, and somewhat unnecessary, alcohol level is the sticky sweetness and fuller body. I get that it's a "lounging" beer, but all ingredients under consideration, I'd personally have enjoyed this as a somewhat thinner, lighter bodied beer allowing the peach juice to emerge more. The feel is still quite good, however, keeping the beer's complexity alive with a very dry balance and light citric acidity from the lemon peel. Gentle, prickly carbonation dances on the tongue; the last defense in keeping this beer from total cloying sticky sweetness.

O - At it's core, Peach Porch Lounger is a superbly crafted beer, expertly brewed to balance layers of deep complexity from the malt base to the yeast esters and beyond. But that complexity is lost when you're looking for a thoughtless lounging beer you can kick back with and enjoy more than one glass of. It's unnecessarily high alcohol content distracts from the peach nuances which are emphasized in both the name and on the label as well as the additional adjunct ingredients. Not to say this needs to be a light lager robust with sugary peach flavor, just something a little more approachable; something that won't knock you on your ass. When all is said and done, New Belgium's second collaboration with a musician, G.Love this time around, is a fine experimental beer that suggests many different styles, blended into one for a rather enjoyable outcome but certainly not something I would want to kick back and relax with if given the choice, as one glass becomes taxing enough towards the finish.

A: Pours a gold tinted straw, a finger of nice beige head. Pretty good retention but no lacing.

S: Smells like a very fruity (stone fruit) wheat beer, sweet straight up white molasses. Overall artificial and jammy.

T: Kind of a jammy, sloppy peach, unbalanced mild to moderate sweetness which imparts a flabby-ness, with a touch of spice on the back end.

M: Medium body and carbonation, slight bite.

O: Not offensive, but very far from well crafted. Tastes like they went overboard on the additions.
