Nose of light barnyard funk, Brett, peaches, oak, & yeast. Taste sweet peach skins, light tart & funk, vinous, white grapes, slight rind bitterness with a dry finish.

Definitely a balance between the peach flavor aroma and a strong rustic saison base. Those looking for a pure fruit bomb or a sour should look elsewhere. Great soft mouth feel and graininess, white pepper / pear / hay of the base merges with peach skin.

I absolutely adored this beer. I personally think it's the best beer brewed by TiredHands. Super light and fluffy saison with a hint of raw peach flesh on the nose and peach pith on the palate. Balanced and not overpowering. I had this side by side with Fuzzy and while they are different Peach beers, it definitely held it's own.

Bright saison with some serious funk on the nose and in the taste. You get some peel of the peach but not loads of fruit. A quenching tartness and well carbed.

Pretty underwhelmed with this one. Pours flat peach color, no bubbles whatsoever. Aroma is outstanding. Flavor is nice, but lacks any carbonation so it doesn't really burst on the tongue. Would like to try another bottle to see if this was just an uncarbed accident, or if this is the norm

What a great name.
Poured into Teku and both the bottle and glass provided by larryi86. Many thanks.
Enjoyable complexity to the aroma. Catch all that should be in there, the sweet fruitiness of the saison, the tart sourness and little chunks of peach. Sweet! Hints of oaks but I think it adds more to the tartness.
Slightly cloudy golden yellow with a white head and decent stamina. Even a little lacing hanging around.
Most of the aroma transports to the flavor as well. More emphasis here on the tartness. Peach is even more subdued as is the saison qualities. At this point it comes across more as a sour fruit beer, a lovely one at that, just not much of a saison anymore. Moderate drying, really just about right as the remaining sugars offer the touch of fruit (including some peach here and there) that lingers very nicely (leaving a big smile on my face :0) Hints of oak (wood and not vanilla) float around the taste as well.
Smooth with a bit of a slickness to the feel from a slightly low carbonated drink.
This is really solid. Probably should be in fruit category or maybe even lambic. I'd think peach would be hard to get and would probably be expensive knowing how many would be needed to add flavor. This one does it right.
It's quite a contradiction between the name of this beer and the joy it gives me.

500 ml bottle poured into a teku

Appearance: Pours a dark golden yellow color with less than a finger of white fizzy head that dissipates almost instantly to the thinnest of collars. Body is hazy with some fine suspended sediment.

Smell: Peach, white pepper, mild funk, hay, white grape and a little bit of oak.

Taste: Basically the same as the aroma. Peach is a bit more prominent than in the nose though. Beyond that is peppery yeast, pear, grape, faint grain character. Mild funk character throughout. Sourness is low/medium.

Mouthfeel: Light/medium bodied. Carbonation on the lower end of medium. Finishes mostly dry.

Overall: Another good one in the emptiness series. Get it if you can. That goes double if you love peaches.

500 ml bottle. Hazy golden yellow, quick dissipating head. Loads of funky, tart peaches on the nose and palate. Oak and wine, nicely carbonated with a good mouth feel.

Bottle pour at the brewpub on Thanksgiving-eve. Pours chill hazed golden yellow with a light film of white head, quickly dissipating down to a ring around the edge, leaving little to no lace on the glass.

Smells of pithy peaches, bit of basement must and light barnyard funk, woody oak from the barrels, earthen mineral, bit of cake-y yeast and some lightly toasted pale malts. Taste is pretty much the same. Peaches and musty funk up front with a light pucker and some chewy dryness from the malt and barrel. As mentioned before, smooth with a bit of tartness in the feel.

Overall a really nice peach saison. I think this one is pretty much ready to go, it could maybe use a little bit more time for the yeast to do its job but I think it is fine as is.
