A: Pours a clear golden apricot in color with some moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some orange highlights. The beer has a finger and a half tall slightly sudsy beige head that reduces to a medium sized patch of very thin film towards the center of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light amounts of grainy malts with moderate to strong aromas of peach. There are some slight notes of grassy hops and possibly a touch of brett funkiness..

T: Upfront there is a light amount of pale and grainy malts which underlies a sweet peach (slightly artificial) flavor which is pretty strong. There are light amounts of brett funkiness and just a touch of grassy hops. Minimal amounts of bitterness are present and fade very quickly.

M: Just slightly heavier than medium bodied with moderate to strong amounts of carbonation.

O: Not the best peach beer that I have had but certainly not the worst... I like the slight touch of brett funkiness but I wish the peach was not quite as sweet (and a touch artificial). Fairly easy to drink with the alcohol is fairly well hidden.

22 oz. bomber,

A: Pours a pretty bright orange with a fizzy light white head. OK head retention, which leaves some small spots of lace.

S: Sweet fermented stone fruit, some light lemon notes, smells like it'll be a bit cloying.

T: Clear peach flavour upfront. Sweet orange and Lemonhead candy midway through. Grassy, lightly hoppy finish still with a bunch of fruit and syrup.

M: Medium to full-bodied, with a frothy yet crisp at times carbonation. Some minor ethanol throughout. A tad cloying with a bit of acridity in the aftertaste which wasn't fun.

O: New Belgium calls it 'Lounger', but this isn't really easy drinking as the name would suggest. This is quite a big beer, it is 9.4% after all. An interesting beer, I like the peach and the kitchen sink of ingredients, nevertheless, it doesn't make for the most tasty or enjoyable brew. I'd say worth a try, but the bomber price is too much, maybe on-tap.

Poured from tap at Bridge is stl. Pours a clear honey color with thin head. Sweet fruit and brett aromas. Crisp hops. Taste is sweet sweet malt with a bitter brett up front. I taste a small amount of peach in the finishj. Its an ok lof brew I usually love this series but this didn't do it for me.

From a 22 oz bottle into a tulip.

A-The color is golden honey with just a slight haze to the liquid. The head is a decent one-finger-plus plume of off-white foam. Unfortunately, the head goes away pretty quickly and doesn't leave much in the way of lacing. Very little (if any) carbonation to be seen.

S-You certainly get peaches...and a little sweet yeast...but the peaches are off just a bit. I also detect hints of dry straw and funk. Quite sweet.

T-The taste mostly follows the nose, but in a bad way. The peaches are very present, but they have an almost rotten character to them; like sour milk. The alcohol is also there, but (again) not in a good way. It contributes to the sour/rotten character.

M-The beer I had was pretty flat. Medium body. This beer lacked that typical saison effervescence.

O-I was pretty disappointed with this. I'm not sure where NB went wrong, but I'll take a pass on this one. Surprisingly, my wife seems to enjoy it...at least it was not a total waste.

On-tap at New Belgium itself, on to the beer:

This beer takes on an orange color, one that's burnt orange, topped with a head that's fine on top and retains decently. The nose has a pleasant sour peach note, coated with a little sugar. With a name like Peach Porcher, I anticipated that I came across a sour, not realizing that I was drinking a saison. Within a few sips, it had more in common with a Belgian blonde than a saison or sour. Sugary Belgian blonde at the base, vague spices, some some of that fruity peach which adds a tartness to the taste. The body is surprisingly big, and rather chewy. It's a solid beer, yet not one I'd like to fork out the MSRP for a bottle.
