3.76/5  rDev +8.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance 3.5: Pours out a hazy, opaque, light orangey gold. Large head and lots of carbonation bubbles; a good attempt to mimic bottle conditioning.

Smell 4.0: Wow, very nice bouquet. Lots of peach scents and nothing artificial about the bouquet. I also detect yeast and barley and a light lemony citrus. Promising.

Taste 3.75: Front is very dry, but there is a pleasant hint of yeast there. Middle is also dry, but there are very subtle peach tastes and a hint of Belgian yeast spiciness. Finish features more subtle peach tastes, barley and more Belgian yeast. I also detect a light hop in here, maybe a Styrian Goldings. Aftertaste is short, dry and provides one more hit of subtle peachiness.

Mouthfeel: 3.5: Carbonation level is good for this style of beer.

Overall 3.75: Taken as a whole, this is a solid seasonal brew. I do have one quibble. If this beer is supposed to be a Saison, why don't they just call it a Saison? It's like calling a lager: "light German-style beer cold conditioned for several months due to the unique yeast strain." Regardless, this beer is just peachy enough with absolutely no artificial or overwhelming flavors. This beer is refreshing, light and well-balanced. Given its dryness, I could see this going well with food and is almost sessionable. Whether or not you choose to do so depends on whether you really like the peach or not. Purists will be offended, I am sure.

3.18/5  rDev -8.1%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Bottle best by Nov 2014 at 35 degrees into snifter
Aroma of peach
Head average (3 cm), white, fizzy/frothy, rapidly diminishing to 2 mm ring and partial layer
Lacing none
Body golden, clear
Flavor starts sour, ends slightly sweet; no hops, no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate light, watery, lively carbonation

Definitely smells like peach but can’t seem to find it in the taste. I have to think of Maggie’s Farmhouse Ale, Side Project # 7, back in 2009 and compare the current peach version to the original. The peach seems more of a marketing ploy – it just isn’t very good, lacking a defined peach flavor, having instead some sour breakdown product which leaves a bitter aftertaste.

3.78/5  rDev +9.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12 oz.

Pours a light lemon gold color, very slight haze, with a sugar white head that dissipates to a bit of lacing. Visible effervescence.

Smells of peach cobbler and a hint of citrus, coriander, and fresh grassy malt.

Flavor is notably peachy with some grassy malt and citrus with a very slight hint of dry hoppiness.

Medium body with tingly carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

A very refreshing warm weather beer which has just the right amount of fruit presence. It's distinctly peach flavored but it doesn't stop being a beer. It's more of a pale ale than a farmhouse in terms of taste, but otherwise this is fairly underrated as far as fruit beers go. Worth a try if you think peach and beer sound good together.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

Clear orange, with a lot of head that dissipates quickly and residual effervescence after pouring. Smell is very clean with a hint of peaches and citrus. First taste that hits me is a very slight funkiness, then a mild peach flavor. Wish this delivered more peaches on the nose and the tongue. Mouthfeel is exactly what you'd want from a saison/farmhouse ale. Light and refreshing.

Overall pretty good, wish I got more peaches, but an easy to drink saison/farmhouse ale that would be a great intro to newbies to the style.
