22 ounce bottle - $7.99 at Lucky's in Woodstock, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a hazy, pale golden body with a small, quickly receding, white head.

Smell: Slender malts enveloped in fragrant peach juices and noted alcoholic waftiness, with light notes of sweat, citrus, and, to my surprise, even a bit of the molasses with some dedicated sniffing.

Taste: Pale malts with a touch of baguette, dried straw particles. Slight honeyish sweetness alongside the bold peach juice taste. Citrus burst midway. You've got a bit of tartness here, but it seems more a product of the peach juice than any brett action. A little molasses, a little spiciness that's aided by the ramped alcohol heat which gives a clear hint of schnapps on the crispish, drying finish. Subtle acidity with the continued alcoholic heat in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: A fair brew that's interesting enough, though I would've preferred it with less alcohol, as there's a little hotness present. Don't feel particularly like a saison, how about just Belgian Hodgepodge?

Review from notes.

A: Pours an orange body with slight golden tints to it with a small off-white head that has decent retention. A small cap forms on top and random bits of lacing cling to the glass.

S: Some light peach upfront with a malty sweetness on the back, presumably from the molasses. Slight funk mixed in.

T: More peach in the beginning mixed with a bit of citrus. This is followed up by a pretty heavy malt sweetness. There is a bit of straw/mustiness mixed in as well.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: Not a bad beer, but was hoping for a bit more in terms of the peaches. The entire time I drank it, I wanted the beer to be much tarter as well.

22oz bomber poured into a pint glass. Picked this one up for about $9.

Pours a darken golden color with a redish tint. Head is small maybe, half a finger and an off-white in color. Initial smell was of peaches but as I drank it I got more Belgian yeast and less fruit. Taste was very little peach, I actually get some banana. Also, I feel that it is some normal saison flavors mixed with an off bitterness, that doesn't go well. Mouthfeel is nothing special if anything the aftertaste is not pleasant and the carbonation feels odd in the mouth.

This tasted very off from the other reviews. Not sure if the bottle I had was bad, but it sure tasted that way to me. This one was very close to a drain pour.

Overall, this has been my least favorite of the lip of faith series and I would not bother trying this one if you haven't already.

Served in a tumbler.

Gotta love the hot fire being spat from the side of the bottle! This stuff pours a mostly clear sunset gold topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises peach syrup, toasted wheat, light lemon rind, and a hint of Brett-y funk. The taste holds notes of stale caramel, dried maple syrup, plastic-lined peaches, dirty cobwebs, and a kiss of Indian corn. Wow, did things go downhill in a hurry! The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda dry finish. Overall, things were just carried out poorly here. While the mix sounded like a good one, the reality that presented itself on my tongue (and those of a few friends as well) was radically different, a world in which a violent clusterfuck of a party just wouldn't stop, no matter how early the neighbors had to get up the next morning...

A - copper with a thin white head that has little retention; carbonation bubbles rising to the top

S - some yeast, a hint of peach, fruity, some warming alcohol, maybe some white grapes

T - funky, yeast, some peach, faint white grapes, alcohol, molasses is there adding some earthiness

M - warm, medium bodied, well carbonated, a bit crisp

I like this. The alcohol is bit heavy but the peaches are a bit sweet. The Belgian yeast adds some funk and some additional fruit. This is a nice twist on a Saison. It's worth a try.

Poured into a Unibroue tulip. Pours a slightly cloudy medium golden amber. Half finger fine off-white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of Belgian yeast and spicing, light bready malt and a hint of lemon. Flavor is mild malt, lemon, light fruit (but not identifiable as peach), saison spicing. Finishes semi-dry with light wild yeast. This starts off slightly sweet, but finishes straight to saison style. Light bodied, but very active carbonation gives a pleasant sharpness and mouth feel. An interesting take on the saison style.

Served from a bomber into a New Belgium globe glass. Yep, again. Beer is yellow / orange and really hazy, big white head, stiff, looks good.

Aroma is grainy with peach, a little sweet.

Beer is mild in body, thin, with a nice fruitiness and a strong finish on the backend. It is good throughout and I enjoy it. I can see this being a nice sipper on a hot afternoon. I'd have it again.
