12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a hazy-ish golden color. The white-colored head, however, sucks - it doesn't even form a finger high before quickly fading into nothing. No lacing is left behind.
S: Wow, that's huge peach coming through. Peach is the dominant note, but there also seems to be a strong lactic acid quality - at times, it's more redolent of a Berliner than a saison. Some sugary notes (as expected) come through. Good as a fruit beer, not good as a saison.
T: I'm picking up a faint touch of flowers to start, while the peaches appear around the mid-taste and linger into the finish. Confectioner's sugar is sprinkled around throughout (pun completely and utterly intended). Peach flavors are shown off acceptably, but it's just dull. There are some weird off-notes in the retronasals at first, but they disappear to just leave an average fruit beer (and a sad-sack saison).
M: Somewhat heavy and sweet. This kind of feel is completely unworthy to a saison, but again, it works fine as a simple fruit beer. It is, as the style would dictate, well carbonated. It isn't all that drinkable.
O: I'm rating this as a fruit beer. In that regard, it's average, maybe a mite below. As a saison, though, it sucks. Period. Try it if you really like peach anything, otherwise give it a miss.

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.
Serving type: on-tap
