Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.
Deep brassy orange color, and very clear nearly bright crystal. Thin capped off white head but about two fingers tall. Falls fairly readily to a thin puck on top. Some minor carbonation rising throughout the glass but not much.
This smells like canned fruit. Practically Del Monte in a can here. Not too much cocktail syrup action at least, it does have an obvious fruit quality but doesn't really come off like fresh or decent peach. There's also not much else to detect as this aroma is overbearing.
Palate at least brings some saison character. Mild sense of dry yeast a bit, but much of the fruit quality takes over particularly in the finish. A bit wet and fleeting and finishing with a watery sweetness. Malt depth is very light and non existent with a wet backbone. Some decent carbonation and a little bit of club soda like qualities, but with a sweet fruit watery finish.
It comes off as a dumbed down saison fruit beer of sorts. While easily drinkable it's not really doing it for me.
