Notes: Collaboration with Casey Brewing & Blending

Fermented in and aged in French Oak with cultures from Missouri and Colorado, this saison spent 7 months maturing with Missouri Flamin' Fury peaches.

Our labels are a change of pace for both breweries as Troy decided to design their Leaner label himself and use inspiration from our Fuzzy label, so we did the same. Our label is designed after their Oak Theory!

Working with Troy on this one was awesome and hopefully it's something we do again (maybe a different fruit) in the future!
Cheers.

Pours a dark orange with a foggy transparency. One finger of off-white foam fizzes up top, dissipating quickly. Aroma is tart and abbreviated. It hits peach right up front, but it's soft. Stone, lemongrass, oak, green grapes, and grass all add some depth for a clean, playful smell. Flavor profile is delightful, with sweet peach right out front. Peach is mild, never commanding the lead. Accents of white wine, stone, faint pear, oak, and lemongrass establish the rest of the flavor profile. It starts out tart, leaning into sour at the end. It also finishes with a more acidic bite than the start. Mouth feel has a bubbly start, but soft finish. Thickness is medium. Overall, peach is really pleasant, and compliments the underlying beer well. It posses just enough tartness to tighten up the jaw, but not enough to wreck the palate.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 750mL bottle. Batch #2. Reviewed from notes.

Too acidic and not quite the same 'whole peach' character as the Casey Leaner. Aroma is great I just find the acidity overpowering the sweet peach notes on the palette.

Mega sour. Lacking the funk character of the Casey blend. Overall, this is a good beer, but it needs to be served with a side of Tums. Worth a try if you can get it at cost.

Pouted from a 750 mL bottle. The color is very pretty dark yellow/orange hazy color. The aroma is a bit of funk with a big explosion of peaches, love it. The taste follows the smell with the typical SP acidity and a light peach flavor. Its an awesome beer and tasty nonetheless.

Blend #2.

Beautiful golden hue introduces notes of fresh peaches and subtle oak. The palate bursts with a bright, fruity acidity that paves the way for a lingering sour pucker and a pinch of tannic dryness. So damn good.

On tap, poured into a stemmed wine glass. Stout white head with good lacing. Nice deep golden color. Funk and peaches on the nose. Tart peaches are up front. Some light acidity towards the end of the sip. Medium body. Nice to finally try this one.
