look: 4 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.75

Looks great, thats about it. Sorry, but this is medicinal. I dont mean like your normal nyquil shit, but this is bad.

looks = great!! see everyone else's rating, it's spot on

nose = ugh, smells so bad, like rotten peaches or medicinal/infection peaches in ones anus

taste.. i cringe tasting this.

mouth feel = i want to puke

overall.. I was hoping my last bottle was fucked so i tried it again, guess not. this beer is over rated simply because it has the word peche.

i will never buy this again and will avoid their other beers.

2.96/5  rDev -32.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 2.5

Yields a clouded amber-yellow color with a decent sized head.

Lots of ripe, almost overripe peaches on the nose with an earthy quality and ice-tea sweet malts. A faint, funky, dusty sourness cuts through the prominent fruitiness, which reveals a luscious sweetness, reminding me of a peach jogurt.

Has a medium carbonation among a fuller body with a late dryness, coating up the sourness.

Drinks with a heavy, fermented fruitiness from the very beginning, complimented by sweet, cakey malts and a creamy softness. Has a jogurty sourness, which gets accompanied by a perfumy peach fruitiness throughout. Finish with more acidic jogurt, still soft on the tongue with even more perfumy peach.

Seems a bit unbalanced to me due to the overly artificial, perfume dominance, which is pretty intense on both aromas and flavors. Got a nice, well fitting tartness, which adds to the richness of the peaches. Unfortunately its pushing too far, adding a distractive artifical flavor to the taste.

I really enjoyed the base beer, but this one didn't do much for me at all. I thought the brett was really lost, and the peaches were overwhelming and a bit medicinal.

i'll cut right to the chase

smell, exactly as the name states, I get some peaches and some brett sour funk, little else and not particularly inviting

taste- of course this is not a bad beer, but given the hype and subsequent expectations,this is a huge letdown. it is a one note peach and some light light funk right at the front of the tongue and fades to a dry metallic flavor. I understand this is 10% and I give the brewers a ton of credit for this attempt but certainly falls way short compared to the top dogs in this game. Competing with AWA's of the world and other lambics and guezes, it wouldn't stand a chance.

I always use baseball analogies whenever possible and if you compare this to a top Awa ( RR, LA, guezes) It would be like me facing pedro martinez in his prime, if I am peche n brett and the big dogs of the sour game are pedro.

I will say as it warmed it improved modestly with some more funk notes permeating the palate , but unless you can get it on the cheap and don't have to give up much in a trade, i'd rather just spend that money on some RR varieties with a good sushi lunch .

In past years I have given this beer a 4.5+, but I'm not crazy about the 2015 release. Smells great, but tastes very perfume-y, and that aggressive Logsdon brett strain comes across slightly soapy in this case.

One of the biggest let downs I've had. Smelled like delsym cough syrup and tasted like peach perfume. Not pleasant at all. I'd did look very pretty though.

Tried this through a trade my brother made,

There is very little sour and even tart qualities. A very overrrated beer that has decent qualities but very little peach flavor and is by no means a sour. I should have known after trying the saison brett by Logsdon.

Overrated to say the least. Very unimpressed. The aftertaste has a mediocre lager taste I try to extinguish with the next sip. I hope you didn't sacrifice too much for this lil bro.

1762nd Review on BA
Bottle to Blue Palms taster
750 ML

Batch 2

Shared with GuruDel and MrHyschybar

App- When this came out of the bottle. It was a very dark orange with a bit of a haze to it. The bubbles were a bit small and didnt leave any cling like a normal saison would. The barrel took some of the carbonation away and left more a dark color.

Smell- I was expecting an explosion of deep barnyard "funk" with the oak balancing things out and then the peche coming in to tie it all together. The peche was a bit small on this one and the ABV made for a unique balancing act of aromas on this one. A bit of a crushed damp wheat smell was in there as well.

Taste- Well I have to say I was a bit let down. Maybe I thought it would be more like V010 (Which I havent had) I was expecting maybe this giant peche explosion with a Rayon vert like flavor to just blow me away. I got more of the wood barrel and small funk with only a small bit of peche behind it. Well layered but lacking in "pop" for me.

Mouth- This had a good feel behind it. A bit medium in body with a good amount of thick carbonation with a solid funk residual flavors behind it. The peche didnt stick around for very long and the barrel seemed to dominate again with that crushed wheat flavor.

Drink- It was a good beer, but again didnt blow me away. I think letting a bottle sit, might help. I truly feel this wouldve been better as say a wild ale with more of a light flavor and more peche behind it. I am glad this was at a share and not a traded bottle.

3.73/5  rDev -15.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

750ml bottle poured into a snifter. The brew appears a hazy orange with a solid white cap 2+ fingers strong that is composed of large bubbles and holds seemingly throughout the entire duration.

The aroma contains earthy brett upfront with a light fruit essence like apricot/peach but without getting sweet smelling. There is some funk and oak that blend into the brett that almost imparts a feel of sulfur.

The taste includes plenty of wheat and faded fruit that is like peach/apricot skins. It is somewhat carbonic and lightly mineral filled just like the base saison (which I wasnt crazy about.)

This is a lightly watery feeling brew with an abundance of carbonation. It is sadly cabonic an overall just ok. I have tried to approach this brewery with positive anxious thoughts but everytime I try their goods, im left underwhelmed. I would drink this again if given the opportunity but really, I dont see this as anything special or worth going out of your way for. Perhaps this was an off bottle?

750 at the chalk bottle share. The aroma is unbievable, peaches and peaches. The pulpy center, right around the pit at the peak of ripeness. Some sweet peach skin. Seriously the best nose on a fruit beer. taste however is just Ok. Fruit, touch of dry Brett. No sour.

Drank from a 1 pint, 9.4 fl. oz./750 ml wax dipped bottle purchased at Craft Beer Cellar, Belmont, MA
Bottle No. 20430
Best by: 10/2020
Served in a tulip

Beautiful appearance. The hazy, golden-amber liquid was capped by a billowing, four-finger tall, bright white, fluffy mass. Large clumps of Brussels-style lacing cascaded down the glass. The head slowly dropped to a thick, frothy film.

The aroma was somewhat underwhelming. A super crisp, dry, powdery yeasty quality was balanced by subtle peach notes. Bright and lively. Slightly floral. A bit jasmine tea-like. The nose was also moderately tart and brett-y. Slightly funky. As the beer sat, the peach subsided and the yeastiness intensified. Dry, tannic, oaky notes also came through big time. Later, the peach reappeared.

The flavor profile was super dry and tannic. Fairly bitter as well. There was a subtle fruity quality on the front end and a touch of malty sweetness, but this was quickly washed away by tart, brett-y notes and a crisp, dry, powdery yeastiness. The beer was also really oaky and tannic. Lemon rind appeared on the back end and carried into the finish. Moderately bitter with a hint of earthy, aged hops. The oaky barrel notes again came through strong. Super tannic and dry. Almost a bit astringent. As the beer sat, subtle fruity notes appeared. Though the flavor profile was rather unrefined, the alcohol was barely noticeable.

The mouthfeel was medium bodied. Soft and creamy. This almost seemed a bit undercarbonated. The liquid contained a fine, frothy effervescence that tuned smooth and supple on the palate.

I really enjoyed Logsdon's Seizoen Bretta and Oak Aged Bretta but found this beer to be overly dry, tannic and one-dimensional. Even though I opened this bottle only a few months after cellaring it, the peach was hardly noticeable. Looking at many of the reviews here on BA, my only guess would be that this was stored for a while before being distributed. That said, I would love to revisit a fresher bottle someday.

3.86/5  rDev -12.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a tulip.

This beer looks like a peach. Very hazy, with a dark yellow orange color and a very full off-white head. A nice bit of lace marks the sides of the glass.

The aroma is light, sweet peach mostly. There is a bit of an acidic sour note. A bit of funk is in the background, but not much.The fruit flavor does not come through as fully in the nose as I would want. The nose is softer than I like in my sours.

The flavor could be peaches and cream, although it would be a light version. The flavor has a crisp, tart, peach flavor with a bit of cream. There is a bit of funk to it, but this beer is rather light and simple for my taste. The finish is a little bit dry.

The mouthfeel is rather light for a 10% beer. It is a little bit tart, and there is a bit of creaminess, but overall it is a bit tame. The carbonation is light and creamy, with a dry and sour finish.

This is a well-made beer, but as a lover of puckering sour beers, this just does not get there. It has a high ABV and a saison finish, but it does not have the intense sour fruit notes I enjoy.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Served on tap into a snifter

A- Poured a very hazy tangerine orange color with off-white ring of head that left no lace

S- Sweet candied peaches and mandarin orange, brett funk

T- Sweet candied peaches and mandarin oranges and some brett funk. Undercurrent of tartness throughout most of the beer and then finishes quite sour, also finishes with a pretty sharp bitterness

M- Light boded, very low carbonation, it does finish a little watery and became more watery as it warmed up some

O- The flavor and aroma are nice, but not as complex or pleasant as the Seizoen Bretta I had just two weeks ago. The mouthfeel held this back for me quite a bit, a little too watery but a nice brett beer. Can't believe this is 10%, it drinks like a 4%, very light.

Thanks to Skuter for sharing this one during the Churchill's weekend festivities.

Bottle No. P2192. Best by 12/2017.

Pours a murky light orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour, tart, and slightly funky with peach and Brett aromas. Taste is much the same with a fermented peach flavor on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is light and refreshing despite its ABV.

750ml bottle...another crazy hard to get peachy beer at a recent tasting. This one generously shared by jlindros. Poured into a Sierra Nevada 30th Anny glass.

A - Pours a pale golden color with a cloudy overall appearance. A short cap of foamy white head forms and lingers briefly and falls to leave a thin collar.

S - Quite bretty with some nice funk. Sweet and quite peachy, a bit cool with some herbal qualities, fruity overall with some additions of grapey aromas too.

T - Surprsingly, not all that peachy. I get other flavors - notably grapes...very juicy. A bit on the dry side, fairly earthy and lots of dry brett character.

M - Dry overall. I get the odd flavor of artificial sweeteners/diet soda. Body is light with a lighter carbonation as well. Disappointing a bit with the lighter than expected fruit aspect.

O - Had very high hopes for this beer...not bad at all, but a bit of a letdown considering my expectations. Not nearly as peachy as I had hoped...overall quite dry and earthy in character with a strong alcoholic aspect that detracts a bit.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Best by 5/2015. Bottle number P430. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Very murky. Golden yellow body. Small white head. Great retention.

Smell - Whoa, peaches. Amazing fruit aroma. Light brett, but it's otherwise all peach.

Taste - Peach is still nice, but it's a little more sour. Less exciting. Peaches and tang. Appropriate name for this beer, I suppose.

Mouthfeel - Light and overcarbonated. Dry and a little sour.

Overall - Great fruit flavor, but the beer itself isn't necessarily great. Tasty, but definitely could be a better beer.

Bottle pour at the tasting at la casa de dirtinabottle.

Pours a murky juicy-looking light orange. Fizzy one inch head, not much lacing.

Smells incredibly peachy, fresh, slightly tart peaches, along with some lemon and acidity.

One dimensional taste, but a good taste nonetheless. Peach and sour tartness. Some lemons, too, maybe, tiny bit of oak.

Very highly carbonated, cuts down on some on the pucker factor. Light to medium bodied, crisp mouthfeel.

My jump into the deep end of the sour pool continues with these guys, this was also pretty good.

750 ml bottle served in a New Glarus tasting glass. Not sure who shared this guy, but thanks!

A: Pours a very hazy yellow color with some floaties (I got some of the dregs). A thick white head forms on the pour and recedes to thick collar that stays throughout.

S: Pure and fresh peach flesh. There is a nice bretty funk with a sugary sweetener type smell. It honestly smells like fruity gummy worms, but in a good way. A little oak and some nice spiced yeast.

T: Peachy flesh, oaky wood. Yeasty spice and some nice tartness. There is a fruity and bretty funk to this. The finish has some musty cobwebs.

M: Medium to light bodied with a nice refreshing finish. There is more mustiness than sourness overall.

O: I would have liked a little a little more tartness and sourness for a wild ale, but it was really nice overall. The fruity sweetness from the peach was really a treat (I really like peaches). Definitely a must try.

Bottle with massive props to jbuddle. Shared at tasting. Reviewed from notes.

Fully opaque cumquat with a vibrant white head which abates very slowly leaving a tight spider web lattice.

Tart and tangy peach, like a cross between peach Pez and vitamin C tablets, alongside plenty of sweaty horse-blanket funk. Bright, clean and snazzy.

Drier flavours with considerable acidity. Earthy peach, lemon-lime and hay.

Medium to full with somewhat aggressive carbonation and mild booze heat.

Rollicking fruit Saison, if a little too big for its boots. Bemused as to why this needed to be 10%

Pour is hazy golden yellow with a tight slightly off white head. Nose is light of peach fuzz, light dusty funk, cobweb, faint cheese. Taste is light, soft peach, dusty Brett and faint cheese, assertive carbonation, fairly dry finish and a well done light sourness through the back.

Pours murky orange with two finger head. Nose was amazing! Major notes of peach almost like peach ring candy. Taste was lacking hints of peach, lightly tart, majorly farmhouse style expected from Logsdon. Very drinkable but does not live up to the hype.

Big thanks to eyebereej for sending this one! Reviewed from notes. Poured from 750 mL bottle into a Tampa Bay Brewing snifter glass.

A: Pours a hazy dark gold, with a big fluffy white head with great retention. Moderate visible carbonation. 4.5/5

S: Musty funk from the Brettanomyces, saison yeastiness, cracker malts, and dry tannins from the oak. I get minimal to no peaches on the nose, which is a bit disappointing. 15/20

T: Tart peaches under a big Brett funkiness, musty barnyard saison yeast and bready malts. Light oak tannins. Dry and lightly tart in the finish. The peach flavors do increase as the beer warms during the drink. 37/45

M: Average weight to body, good carbonation sensation, and the alcohol is well-hidden. 7/10

O: This was pretty tasty, but I was a little disappointed. I expected more peach flavor and tartness, and the Brett funk and wild farmhouse character seemed to predominate. I would recommend letting this one getting much closer to room temperature for full enjoyment. 16.5/20

Estimated final score: 4.10
Calculated final score: 80/100
Old BA score: 4.0

A- Pours cloudy orange color with a 1 finger white head. Minimal lacing.

S- Honey, sweet peaches, tartness.

T- Light honey, sour peaches, some earthiness, and musty

M- Medium body and carbonation. Very light for a 10% beer, that drinks like a 6% beer.

O- Nice saison with some tart and sweet peaches.

Very cloudy peach colored body. cap and collar throughout. Great lacing and head retention.

Faint fruity tartness.

Extreme funk, "musty basement". Peach is noticable but not close to overwhemling. Almost reminds me of lemonade somehow. Wouldn't guess as high of an ABV than it actually is.

Medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

Had side by side with Fantasia and I give a slight edge to Fantasia. I'd say worth seeking out if you don't have to pay an arm and a leg. Base beer is great as well. Thanks egrace84.
