This was a version of SBB's regular Petit Tronc saison that had been matured on peaches. I heard a rumour that Southern Bay's original beer for GABS had not worked out, so they just threw this together with some Petit Tronc they already had sitting around. But it was just a rumour. Tried on-tap at GABS 2013 in Melbourne.

Pours an orange-tinted yellow with solid hazing. Body is solid enough for its 6.6% weight. Head is a fine white, full, but filmy crest that leaves lacing in minimal streaks down the glass. Looks decent.

Sharp metallic characters on the nose, slightly yeasty and intense, with some overlaid characters of fruit skin. From here comes a hint of funk and acidity that works brashly against the metallic character. The fruit character is more apricot than peach to me. Some saltiness comes through as well. Not bad.

Spicy and plastic on the front-palate, before the sharp fruit comes through mid palate with a slightly unsavoury over-ripe, rotting, fermenting character. Most everything drops out on the back, leaving it light and quite crisp, with some lingering fruit, and a strange metallic aftertaste.

Feel is light, but rounded.

Overall, yeah, it's interesting enough. Not bad, but also weak in some places. Although I've Le Petit Tronc before, I don't really remember it (and didn't review it), but I'd like to see how the peach version compares.

Pours a champagne/saffron kind of colour, huge haze throughout. Head is foamy, off-white, decent retention. Pretty nice-looking saison.

Smells saisony. Lots of funk with barnyard, horse characters and a touch of cedar wood. Some dry chardonnay-oak characters with a touch of rubber on the back. Savoury, funky, good.

Lots of rubber on the palate as well. That vinous character continues with chardonnay oak and some dry champagne notes. Lots of barnyard funk throughout but particularly on the back - funky, a little bit off, but fresh and pleasant. Not much peach which is a shame but it's a very decent saison.

Mouthfeel is surprisingly full, quite bitty from all the cloudy suspension. Not bad.

Tastes a little like an aged riesling, but plenty of decent beery saison characters as well. Nice.
