3.84/5 rDev -13.5%
Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a tulip.
This beer looks like a peach. Very hazy, with a dark yellow orange color and a very full off-white head. A nice bit of lace marks the sides of the glass.
The aroma is light, sweet peach mostly. There is a bit of an acidic sour note. A bit of funk is in the background, but not much.The fruit flavor does not come through as fully in the nose as I would want. The nose is softer than I like in my sours.
The flavor could be peaches and cream, although it would be a light version. The flavor has a crisp, tart, peach flavor with a bit of cream. There is a bit of funk to it, but this beer is rather light and simple for my taste. The finish is a little bit dry.
The mouthfeel is rather light for a 10% beer. It is a little bit tart, and there is a bit of creaminess, but overall it is a bit tame. The carbonation is light and creamy, with a dry and sour finish.
This is a well-made beer, but as a lover of puckering sour beers, this just does not get there. It has a high ABV and a saison finish, but it does not have the intense sour fruit notes I enjoy.

Thanks to anadune for this one, super high up there on my "wants" list, glad to finally see this one go. I love peaches and I love Brett, so this beer should do me well. Pours a brilliant sunburst color with hints of golden-peach flowing about. Cloudy and opaque for the most part with a foamy white head that has decent retention.
Whoof! Talk about funk! The aroma hits hard, right out of the gate, and doesn't let up. Copious amounts of Brett just unleash and unload on the senses - barnyard funk, damp cellar, and wet hay. And then, of course, the peaches! There's a vibrant peach presence that underlines the funky body of the beer - it's sweet, juicy, and authentic, and perhaps most importantly - it's not overdone at all. Rather than control or overtake the aroma, the peaches just accent it, and inject their juicy goodness in a moderate but noticeable amount, a nearly perfect complement to the barnyard funk. Sweet and funky all at once - how can you not love that? The oak can be found once you "search" for it, and once you find it, it doesn't go away. Beautiful woody tones round out this excellently aromatic profile. Exquisite.
I couldn't have been more excited to finally bring this one to my lips... as soon as it hits my palate, the funk just plants itself in my mouth and never lets go. This bitch is SUPER funky; tons of barnyard, horsey sweat, musty earth, cheesy-funk... Absolutely crazy. The oak makes a big comeback and tastes much more robust than it smelled - works perfectly with the insane amounts of Brett that are going wild right now. And then again - just like an epiphany similar to the aroma - the peaches just squeeze their way in, quietly and unobtrusively, adding just the right amount of presence and flavor. Seriously, they could not have been added to this beer in a more perfect amount. Enough to tame the Brett and keep your taste buds working, but not enough to overpower and turn this thing into a peach cobbler.
I wouldn't necessarily describe this beer as "sour", but there certainly is a light tartness that hits you initially with the onslaught of Brett. By the time the peaches take the forefront, the tartness will have faded and the beer takes on a lovely sweetness that nicely combines with (and is probably aided by) the peach flavors. My friend and I were surprised to find out this beer was clocking in at 10% ABV - there's just no possible way that much alcohol can be masked so well. Honestly, this drinks just as easily as the Cantillon and Drie Fonteinen gueuzes we had previously, and those contain nearly half the alcohol. Peche n' Brett has a medium body; sharp, slick, and wet mouth feel with a medium-high amount of carbonation.
Wow, what a truly unique and amazing beer. Perfect amount of peaches and a nice compliment to their wonderful Brett profile. I thought this one was a huge improvement over the Seizoen Bretta (although that was still very good). Took me by surprise, but I hope I'll have the chance to enjoy this one again. Top notch.

Acquired via trade
Hazy golden orange and peach in color with a quickly forming, persistent near-white head. High carbonation, as this one started bubbling over the bottle's lip upon cracking. This leaves the glass absolutely sticky with a thick film of lace down the glass. Gorgeously sticky!
A complex, marvelous, balanced, delicate, yet bold aroma. The Brett yeast is toned down when compared side-by-side with the straight Bretta version, though here it's marvelously complementary as opposed to in your face. The addition of the peach and additional wood notes is striking yet delicate. This is a peach/funk/earth lollipop. Yes, please!
Peach and white fruits dominate, as initially this beer almost seems too sweet. It doesn't take long to realize that it isn't, as there's a very nice earthy and funky bitterness that complements the ripe peach notes, along with a hint of wood and even more barnyard funk.
Medium bodied, creamy, with moderate-high carbonation.
Simply phenomenal. I wish I could drink this by the barrel.

4.35/5 rDev -2%
A: Cloudy orange, practically opaque. It has the appearance of mango nectar.
S: A big blast of funky saison yeast, brett breath, sweet peaches, and pears.
T: Boozy. The alcohol appears prominently at the front and is then joined by dry, yeasty funk, grass, and . The peaches only appear on the finish. No tartness.
M: Thick but dry. The alcohol heat leaves a trail from throat to stomach.
O: Not sure what to think about this given how long it took me to chase it down. It's definitely good but the flavor isn't as complex as I was led to expect.

4.36/5 rDev -1.8%
S - Lots of peach, lactic acid, light grassy presence to it 4.25
T - Good peach presence to it up front that is balanced with a nice funky Brett and a slight lemon tartness. The finish is where the more wild aspects shine through as the Brett and sour make themselves more known.
M - Light carbonation with a nice dry finish
O - Really a great peach Saison that balances well between the peach and the sour and funky presence.
