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.

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.

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.
