Nice ripe/over-ripe peaches are big in the smell, and also in the taste. Some floral flavors as well in both smell and taste. Pretty mild saison but that belgian yeast is there - banana and cloves primarily. Easy drinker.

Not a bad Saison, considering that it's intentionally fruity. I noticed considerably more apricot than peach in both the aromas and flavor, but that's me. Light level of yeast funk. Sweetness is certainly on the high end for a Saison. Mouthfeel is fairly crisp, and well carbonated, so in that respect it scores well. Had I seen the BA score before purchasing, I would've avoided it, but glad that I picked up this 4 pack while on vaca. New and different.

To me, this is one of the best summer beers out there, but you've gotta like peach! This Southern belle does.

Appearance: It has a nice hazy golden/yellow color to it. It has a nice thick off-white head that dies down moderately and leaves very little lacing.

Smell: The aromas give out hints of peaches, apricots, wheat malts, faint pepper and a touch of Saison yeast.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a some peaches, wheat, some black pepper and faint Saison yeast.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a decent overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by passable flavors and aromas. Nothing exciting here.

Serving type: bottle

Straight pour from a pry-off 12oz bottle to a can glass. There’s a freshness date of October 31, 2014 printed in yellow ink on the neck of the bottle (“14134.136 10.31.2014”), which would mean it’s got another two and a half months or so before it “expires” or what have you. Which I think would make this about a month and a half old now.

Appearance (3.0): Two fingers of crackly, just-off-white head comes off of the pour easily, capping a golden body with light orange highlights and just a very light chill haze. Retention is moderately below average, with the head lasting an average period of time but leaving very little behind—no lacing to speak of, and just a thin residue on the surface.

Smell (3.25): Overripe peach juice, peach candy flavor (like a lollipop), a little dusty hay and dried grains. Light, dry common crackers underpin the fruit esters a bit, but it’s very light.

Taste (3.0): Following the nose, the flavor’s dominated right off the bat by peachy fruit esters that, while they may not be, certainly feel artificial. It’s got a light fruit bitterness on the backside, but it’s pretty vague. The malt base is pale, clean, simple, and crackery. An amorphous spice comes through on the back end, bringing a vague pepper/clove character, but it doesn’t hold up particularly well. It’s pleasant enough, though.

Mouthfeel (3.5): Light carbonation that doesn’t quite tingle helps lighten the body, which is a bit on the light side of medium, give or take. The pale body, light spice, and peachy esters help the beer to finish on the dry side.

Overall (3.0): I dunno, I really liked the idea of this beer but it’s just not there. It’s average-ish, because it’s refreshing enough and not inoffensive, but it’s not in any regard a decent representation of the style, nor is it a particularly interesting fruit beer. But, like I said, it’s refreshing enough and in no way does it offend.
