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.
