3.76/5  rDev +7.7%
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.

3.78/5  rDev +8.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12 oz glass into a snifter. Acquired in a trade.

A- pours a hazy yellow orange body with a 2 finger whit head that reduces fairly quickly.

S- Strong peaches, mango, citrus, wheat, spices, cloves.

T- Huge peach punch upfront, gives away to bready, malty, fruity, spicy finish.

M- Easy drinking, somewhat thin body. Great summer beer.

One dimensional, but definitely a easy drinking, nice tasting thirst quencher. Wish it was available around me.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours a light golden color with a soapy white head. One of the best aromas in a brew featuring peaches. Peach juice, wheat, bread and light floral.

In the taste, fruity peach, light tartness, some spicy yeast. Has a mellow herbal note and hints of cantaloupe. Almost has a fresh unripe peach skin taste. The peach and hops lead the palate to a state of subtropical confusion, in a good way.

Light to medium bodied with a light carbonation. Fruity and enjoyable at that, yet it really carries the Saison style quite well. Overall this is a good brew, pretty interesting stuff.

When I poured this beer it has light orange color with a big foamy white head. The aroma smells like a fresh peach. The taste has some peach to it but not much, has more of a grain and yeast flavor to it. The mouthfeel is smooth and overall this batch was over carbonated but tasty.
