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.

22oz bottle in snifter.

A: Pours a clear apricot color with a short lived off-white head that left faint spots of lace down the glass.
S: Spicy and syrupy sweet smelling. Cinnamon, dry grains, canned peach juice, molasses, lemon zest, apricots, nutmeg, and light brett.
T: Fairly cloying and syrupy. I like the flavors but could have done without the molasses. Peach, lemon zest, and molasses dominate, with hints of earth, brett, grainy malt, and cinnamon. The finish is sweet and full of peppery spices, and the aftertaste is fruity with hints of apple juice.
M: Thick body, syrupy mouthfeel, very low carbonation. Could use a dryer mouthfeel, or more carbonation. Too syrupy and cloying.
O: Interesting flavor but fell short of the mark. Way too sweet, syrupy and synthetic. Dryer, with more peach less molasses and this would have been awesome.

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.

This beer poured as a very nice clean and clear looking yellowish orange color. There is a nice white head on top. Some retention and lacing. The smell of this beer had a slight sour note but also fruity, with a light funk to it. The taste is a little tart, it's got peach and lemon in terr for sure. The molasses is a mystery, not sure where that is. The mouthfeel is light, it's nicely carbonated and drinkable. Overall I enjoyed this beer. It's not a bad brew, it's something I would probably drink again.

Produced a finger, and a half of white foam. Beer color is a semi-transparent, honey/straw color.
The aroma is of farmhouse funk, peach, and a sour note of bret,
The taste is similar, but with a more sour taste, and alcohol taste pushing through. Medium mouth-feel Med-high carbonation.
Nice beer. Easy drinking for a high-ish alcohol beer.

Quite handsome in the delicate Crooked Line tulip. Golden amber with a decent head and plenty of lacing. Very well carbonated and prickly on the tongue. Nose of fruit cocktail with a whiff of the barnyard.

Great savory, umame taste. The dry finish emerges from the yeasty Belgian flavor. A good example of a contemporary Saison, with the fruit playing against the scratchy yeast flavors. The peach tastes like real fruit, with a slight sweetness to start. Even a hint of peach skins. Some bitterness in the aftertaste.

Really mellow and drinkable, but with an edge to it. One of my favorites in the Lips series. From the 22 oz bottle bought at Liticker's in Ocean Beach.
