Warm peach glow to this one. Hazy light orange color with an overrush of coarse white head that shows off some creaminess. I topped off the glass and another two inches formed. Light glistening in tiny points off of the crown of foam. Lovely.
White peach aroma is sweet and lightly tart. Yeastiness lurks beneath. Floral esters that I doubt are the doings of hops. Bright and sweet with just a touch of peppery spice. Very mild in the farmhouse aspect. A fruit ale with a lovely orchard-picked aroma.
Ah, slightly unripe white peach, white wine, peppery saison yeast, sage, floral notes, and a hint of cucumber rind bitterness in the finish. Exquisitely soft, yet bright. Vividly peach, without the canned fruit syrupiness. True farmhouse ale backing it all up with hints of tart citrus and spice garden notes. Appropriately summery. Quite refreshing and delicious.
Mouthfeel is very gratifying. A nice spicy carbonation bite that crashes like a wave in the back of the mouth. The body is fuller than expected; swishier, like a drinking vinegar. Dry, as to say, without stickiness. Almost soapy-feeling in the mouth. A palate-cleansing saison.
As a fruit beer, I'd give it high marks. As a saison, it's decent. Maybe, good. The peach makes it, of course. That's the reason you buy it; that's the reason you try it. Final thoughts? I need to get me a six-pack of this stuff!

Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, opaque, orange-gold coloring, with no head. Nose of fresh and sweet peach, subtle funky notes, and a biscuit backbone. Flavors are peach sweet forward, with a very tart and slightly sour undercurrent. Crisp grape-like characteristics cut the sweet feel quickly. Steady carbonation flow keeps the body light and crisp. Fruity peach aftertaste, with a subtle grain linger. The finish is tart, crisp, and refreshing. Very solid, warm weather brew.
