Avery Brewing Co. "Perzik Saison"
12 fl. oz. can, "CANNED ON: 04/04/17" and sampled on 05//19/17
$2 @ Weis Market #231, Conshohocken, PA

Notes via stream of consciousness: I've had this beer before. There aren't many that I'll go back to regularly, particularly peach beers, but I really enjoy this one. It's hazy golden body looks like that of a hefeweizen, but the white head above it is too short, and unfortunately it doesn't hold very well or leave much lace behind. In the nose it's yeasty, peppery, spicy with coriander, floral, grassy, and fruity with a hint of citrus, some soft banana, and peach. Not surprisingly, the flavor follows, but don't think it's big and bold, all of those notes are there but it's fairly subdued. Perhaps the peach come out strongest, and it's completely authentic, perhaps to a bit of a fault as it's kind of weird, but I love that, it goes right along with the funkiness of a saison. It's sweetish upfront but then tart in the swallow which gives it a bit of character in that it changes as it crosses the palate whereas some beers remain basically the same start to finish. Some pepper and a bit of grassiness join the tartness in the finish to dry it. Medium bodied with a restrained carbonation that explains the lack of head retention, and which I think is a fair trade-off for the smoother mouthfeel, and less carbonic acid which would probably accentuate its tartness. I am curiosu as to how it would be with more bite though. In the end this is a summer release and I think that suits it perfectly.

Pours a hazy golden color with a tight, white head that leaves little to no lacing.

Smells of bright fruits and some grain.

Tastes of the bright fruits layered with a bit of grain. Fruits lead off with notes of peach, apple, and white grape. This gives way to grainy sweetness. A bit of spice on the backend before a slightly sweet, fruity finish.

Mouthfeel is light with a crisp amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is an okay saison. A little too one note with the fruits.

Cloudy, apricot-colored body topped with a dense, creamy, white head. Initial aroma of sour apricots and peaches; settles into a citrus and grapefruit rind character; lemony. Mild bread and yeast flavor base infused with a slightly tart quality; mild, fruity quality overall; well-balanced dryness. Medium-heavy body; soft, powdery, and dry.

A nice, well-rounded saison that delivers a crisp yet balanced, almost subtle, fruitiness and funk.

Hazy pineapple juice color with a 2 finger creamy head, leaving a distinct single skirt of lace where it once was.

Smell is less than stellar. Kind of garbagey, horse blanket, with old peaches and spice rack. As it warms, the former fades and the peaches and spice come out more.

Holy peaches. Peach yogurt comes out first, followed with clove and fresh spices, namely basil, mint, coriander, and nutmeg. A touch hot, bringing out some of that 6.4% full force. As it is drank more, it tastes more like spices and less like peaches.

Feel is creamy and crispy, slightly hot, ends with a nice thin coating on the palate.

This was surprisingly a decent farmhouse ale. I'd have it again, and I don't say that about many saisons.

12oz. canned 3-12-16

Pours cloudy hazy gold with a creamy frothy white foam head. Smells like peaches, some yeasty notes of banana, clove, vanilla, some bready cereal grain, mild apple, pear, with earthy grassy minty pine. Tastes like fresh peaches, bready cereal grain, some vanilla, banana, clove-like spice, mild apple, pear, with earthy grassy minty pine. Feels medium bodied, smooth and slick with low carbonation. Overall a really nice peach saison.

From a can on an 80 degree day doing yard work (actually cannot comment on the color). A tinge of sour for us novices but ultimately refreshing.
