I've been hunting this one for a long time, so it's with great enthusiasm that I review this beer. Poured out of a 750 mL bottle with a wax-dipped neck and cap and marked with an enjoy by date of 01/2019. Served in a Boulevard Smokestack series tulip glass.
Appearance - A beautiful, cloudy amber orange-yellow hue with faint straw highlights in places. Atop the body sits a frothy two-finger head of off white with a yellowish twinge to it. Retention is excellent, taking several minutes to finally dissipate to an uneven layer of flim and pockets of thicker foam across the surface. Sheets of silky lacing remain for awhile before converting to more mottled streaks of sticky deposits on the side of the glass.
Smell - A great blend of ripe, fruity notes from the peaches and the funky twang from the brett. There are more subtle notes of light sourdough, but this one is all fruit and brett. Some musty, barnyard funk and peach pure as well as faint oak tannins and perhaps a kiss of grassy hops providing some balance. Really, just an intoxicatingly good beer--I could sit here and smell it for hours, but then I'd miss out on the...
Taste - Initial explosion of peach flesh and tartness that induces a pinch in the tastebuds at the front of my cheeks and on the tip of my tongue. That initial bit of sour fades away leaving notes of wet hay and funk with an underlying dryness alongside wood and an herbal hop bitterness. There are some white win-like characteristics as well, giving the impression of drinking a fresh-made peach bellini (sparkling wine and peach puree). I can't emphasize enough how much the fresh peaches come through in this beer.
Mouthfeel - Light bodied and moderate-to-high carbonation, providing a dynamic mouthfeel with notes of prickly tartness and a drying finish.
Overall, this is just a fantastic beer. It brings to mind just how disappointing it is that brewing with fresh fruit is such an expensive proposition, because when done well, beers with fresh fruit are hard to beat. This one is no different, and whoever thought of adding that distinctive yeast known as Brettanomyces to a peach-infused beer was a genius. The natural characteristics of the fruit work well with the funk of the brett. I will likely buy this every time I have the opportunity, as it is outstanding.

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.

750ml bottle poured into tulip 13/7/14 bottle #4676 BB 01/2019 big thanks to Rutager for the bottle
A cloudy orange liquid, I can only see a few bubbles but there's plenty in there somewhere as it pumps out a dense three finger foam that has great retention leaving rings deep down the glass
S massive peach nose, smells juicy as hell, some apricots, pear, green apple, doughy, mild funk and wood but for the most its fresh peaches, smells awesome I wouldn't change a thing
T more wood and funk and less of the massive peachy notes I was loving on the nose, still tastes great but then nose was a very hard act to follow
M heavy side of medium, a little tart, just stays on the creamy side of foam, no booze on the way down, wood, brett, and peaches linger faintly for ages
O smells amazing, the booze is completely hidden, way too easy drinking, very well put together, everything meshes together beautifully
This one hit the spot, the nose is unbelievable, 10% is completely hidden, not sure if I'd age this one with the peaches kicking ass right now, another one of those beers I want to drink the day its bottled and five years down the road.
