4.39/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Split with angrybabboon.

Appearance: Hazy bright golden orange. Head is bright-white and creamy with an initial dense and fluffy cap. Drops to a small wisp of a cap with sticky sheets and notches of lacing. Moderate carbonation on the pour. Super bright.

Smell: Straight up peach juice. Obliterated and macerated peach puree. Hyper fresh and fruity. Carries a deep funkiness throughout with big pushes of grass, dirt, and old wooden beams. Slightly musty with a soft lactic element building through the back. A touch of soap. Some tangerine and super soft malt. Some cracker and biscuity white bread. A touch of honey as well.

Taste: Funky tart peaches. Hay and grass mixed with a damp musty peach of wood slathered in peach puree. Mild lactic acidity brightens it up with each sip. Hints at nectarine and maybe even tangerine. Warming lets out a little wild honey character with a soft floral backing. Fluffy yeast with peach flesh. All of the peach. The finish comes off with a touch of soap and lingering woody bitterness. A solid push of pale malt. Slight biscuity malt sweetness rounds the whole thing out. Super ripe peach on the initial sip. Super deep brett character. Old barn and stone supports. Funky Tart edge builds a little as it warms hinting at something almost citric but falls back to lactic before getting there. Ever so slightly bandaidy.

Mouthfeel: The initial sip carries a medium body with a moderate carbonation. Finishes impressively dry given the juicy peach character. Moderate to high astringency.

Overall: When peach fuzz is made of bacteria.

The name is the most apt description I've read in forever. It's all peaches and brett. The brett runs the gamut and starts throwing some deep earth notes. It's solid, amazing even, but didn't quite match my expectations (damn you hype machine).

pours a hazy yellow/orange, with a nice thick white head. The smell is LOADED with peach. You can smell it as soon as you pop open the bottle. Also a bit of funk in there. Sweet smelling. The taste is like the nose, but not as extreme. A nice subtle peach flavor, with a nice tart finish. Not overly tart though. A nice bit of farmhouse funk in there also. Overall, a super solid beer. I am not a farmhouse ale fan so much, but this was great.

On draft. Hazy golden orange body, very thin head. Aroma is rich stone fruit, with light lemon and funky undertones. Tart and bright, medium light body. Sweet and smooth finish, quite enjoyable.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy, peachy color. Fluffy head. Very turbid. Aroma is full of fresh, under-ripe, slightly tart peaches. Earthy nose as well. Sweet and tart peaches. Flavor gives me a very authentic peach flavor that comes in both a sweet and sour manner. Sweet maltiness as well as a rustic funk from the Brett. The Brett character matches the peachy flavors very well. I am actually pleased to find that this one is not a super sour brew. Very peachy, Bretty, and authentic. The alcohol is hidden in with preposterous efficiency. I would like to experience more oak flavor. Overall I enjoyed this and thought it was nearly worth the hefty price tag.

look: 4.25 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance - The beer was golden yellow with white bubbles crowning the glass.

Smell - Wow! This smells like fresh peaches. Very nice!

Taste - My initial impression is tart fresh peaches. The funk enters with a certain level of grassiness. Toward the back, the taste leans dry from the oak with hints of sour Granny Smith apples.

Mouthfeel - The carbonation is aggressive, brushing away the sweetnees until only dry notes are left.

Overall - The peaches here are great. I am not a big saison guy, but this is great.

Really disappointed in this one given the high ratings. Peach is little to non-existent in the nose and the taste. It's not a bad beer, was just expecting much more, especially given the price.

This beer really changed by opinion on what a saison can taste like. Tons of peach flavor with a nice tart finish. The brett brings in a great element as well.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

A — Pours an orangey hazy color into the glass, there is a puffy white head that settles out and leaves a spot or two of lacing behind.

S — Smells of fresh peaches and light funky brett. Really peach forward and fresh, just ridiculous how fresh and juicy this smells.
This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a one and a half finger big fluffy white head. After it finally dissipated (boy that took forever, almost like watching paint dry), light messy lacing stuck all around the glass.
The smell started off with sweet juicy peaches. Funky brett plays a nice balance to lead into light tart citrus underneath.
The taste was basically the same bringing in a nice sour element for added complexity. Subtle yeastiness shows its presence nicely. Semi-sweet to sour aftertaste runs into the finish.
The mouthfeel was about light to medium bodied with a really nice crisp sweet sessionability about it. Carbonation feels good. Sour notes hit my tongue nicely.
Overall, what a wonderful saison with the sour and tart feels in it. I'd have this again. This is top notch stuff here.

Had this one at a share. WOW as soon as poured you can smell those peaches. Like peach nectar. Very cloudy tall white head but just huge aromas of sour peach and like a blue cheese funk. Taste was baby food. Tart peach baby food is the only way I can really describe this one. Loved it.

This is exceptional and yet so simple. Fresh peaches, light sour, and a bit of tanginess it drinks intensely smooth and light. 10%? Seems hard to believe as this is smooth and easily drinkable.

750ml bottle poured into tasting glass

A — Pours an orangey hazy color into the glass, there is a puffy white head that settles out and leaves a spot or two of lacing behind.

S — Smells of fresh peaches and light funky brett. Really peach forward and fresh, just ridiculous how fresh and juicy this smells.

T — Tastes lightly sweet and super juicy, little bit of a funky brett balance as well, yeasty, lightly phenolic.

M — Medium bodied, little to no alcohol presence, can't believe this is 10.0% ABV, just super refreshing and light.

O — Fantastic overall, errs on the sweet side, I would love this with a little bit of sour, but as it is, it's freaking great.

Really was looking forward to trying this one! Tried alongside three other peach beers...this one smoked all of them… Hands-down the best peach beer I've ever had as well as the best Brett beer I have ever had and I have had many! Absolutely wonderful nose on this one and rhe palate was even bette with tons of Peach and just the right amount of complimenting Brett!!! Well done!!!

This is like biting into a peach. Rounding out with a lingering brett funk on the tongue. A light refreshing brew that is perfectly balanced. Hype free on this.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Purchased at Costco for $15.59. 750 ml bottles dated "Best By 1/2020". Poured into tulips and shared with good friends around a campfire on a warm summer evening.

Pours a gorgeous creamy pastel peach color with a thick, frothy head that sticks around and leaves tons of lace.

Aroma is almost straight-up peach, with just a hint of brett. Very fruity aroma.

Taste is also dominated by fresh and fruity peach, but with enough tartness to add complexity and just a slight aftertaste of straw and horse. No indication here of the high ABV.

Mouth is perfect. Creamy, smooth, silky, slightly dry, but enough fruit to fill your mouth.

Overall, this is a great fruit beer that builds on the already fantastic Soizen Bretta base beer. I'm glad I got two bottles.

Poured from the 750 bottle into a large tulip.
Pours a rich and glowing honey color with depth. Huge soapy head.
Aromas are unique combination of brett yeast and peach.
Taste is complex. The brett is tamped down by the peach but they mix to create something unique.
Moutfeel was very nice.
Overall this beer is unique, complex and delicious. Tons of fruit here.

I'm not really into peach, never had a beer with peach I liked before. But Peche n Brett is just wow. I'm eager to grab the Seizoen Bretta now and taste the base beer.

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.

Peach aroma but not overpowering peach taste. Perfect balance of tart, sweet and funk. Delicate mouthfeel. Even though the ABV is high, you do not get an alcohol taste - I could drink this beer all day long.

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.

2015 bottle. Peaches, mango, pineapple, and farmhouse all dance together on the nose. Flavors come out as such with a nice touch of drying acidity thanks to the Brett. Alcohol is well hidden. Lovely beer! Can't wait to have it next year!

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.

I suspect they poured peach syrup into seizoen bretta. The peach flavor didn't taste natural and was not as explosive as some have mentioned. Overall, not bad

Disclaimer: 2014 vintage consumed after Flora Cherry.

This beer smells amazing. It explodes with peaches on the nose.

The taste is really where this beer missed the mark. It delvers on the peach but less than the nose would indicate. I was hoping for more sour on the palate to strengthen this beer. The finish was bizarre and undesirable.

L: amberish Orange with a fluffy four finger head that dissipates into a one finger head and large patches stuck to the side of the glass
S: I could sniff this for hours. Peach in every form - fresh fruit, syrupy, candied/gummy peach. Very clean.
T: clean, crisp funk from the Brett, crisp fruitiness from the peach and pear juice, a little malt in the background. A faint hint of tartness.
F: again, crisp and clean with a dry finish
O: delicious. Well crafted and executed.
