Ridiculously over carbonated for no reason. Feel is too bubbly. Smelled like vinegar, doesn't taste unbearable but this is straight up miss to me. Disappointed

Drinking this at home.
Poured from a bottle into a pint glass, a two minute pour gave a nice white foamy head that dropped quickly to a thin cap and no real lacing. Orange colored.
Smells peachy, lightly biscuity, Belgian yeast, farmhouse funky, but mostly peaches.
Taste follows the nose nicely, with the peaches and Belgian yeast upfront.
Mouth feel is medium for the style.
Overall a very nice Farmhouse Peach Ale-Saison that I would definitely drink again.
Cheers!

Pours real ugly at first honestly, a lot of sediment floating that just sinks to the bottom of the glass, dark murky gold with a finger of soapy white head that fades fast

Moderate funk and a peppery aroma greets the nose, jammy peaches with a candy like sweetness, very appealing aromas

Taste is pretty similar to the nose, but more fruit forward than anything, that fruit character still shining through the brightest, very sweet but full, a hint of leather on the finish

Medium bodied with high carbonation, this drinks really easy, finishing rather syrupy but backed by a tartness so that it doesn't weigh it down

Only my 2nd saison, and strange looks aside, this way pretty good, easy drinking

5 oz pour on tap. Not the greatest saison, and not much peach aroma/flavor either. Slightly soapy and bland. Pretty mediocre offering from the monks at Spencer (if there are indeed any monks at Spencer).

Lightly veiled orange, so and so foam, bubbly. Visible carbonation.
Fruity smell, peach over all. Then spices, white pepper and coriander. Orange peel.
Same notes in the taste, on a malty and lighlty biscuity base.
Velvety body, almost "pulp".
Spices and peach in the aftertaste.
Pleasant, not a must have beer, aperitif beer.

From the 11.2 fl. oz. bottle dated 02/22/19. Sampled on April 20, 2019.

The color is an amber-orange with a quick lived white head. Little to no lacing.

The peaches are forward in the aroma with the Belgian yeast and toasted biscuit characters typical of a Trappist in the background. Some light coriander.

The mouthfeel is light to medium.

The peaches tend to overwhelm all of the other characters in the flavor. I would have wanted it to be more subtle. But if you like your fruit beers to taste fruity - you are all set. There is a peppery kind of finish at the end.

A very nice drink. The peach is not at the front. It is a very subtle flavor that enhances but doesn’t over power the saison. A perfect example of what the style can be.

De Espuna - Tienda de Cerveza. En copa Teku. Jugando a Demetrios. Mini geyser al abrirla. El melocoton se nota bastante en nariz y boca, y es agradable, pero de saison tiene poco. Mas bien es una belgian pale con melocoton

330 ml bottle into signature chalice, best before 2/22/2019. Pours lightly hazy deep golden amber color with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of lightly tart/tangy peaches, fruit skin/pits, lemon, orange zest, pear, red apple, melon, peppercorn, wheat, cracker, and white bread; with lighter notes of almond, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, peaches, and moderate pale/wheat malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of peaches, fruit skin/pits, lemon, orange zest, pear, red apple, melon, peppercorn, wheat, cracker, and white bread; with lighter notes of almond, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate peppery yeast spiciness, and herbal/floral/grassy hop bitternesss on the finish. Lingering notes of tart/tangy peaches, fruit skin/pits, lemon, orange zest, pear, red apple, melon, peppercorn, wheat, cracker, white bread, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, peaches, and moderate pale/wheat malt flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness balance, and no cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from bitter/spiciness. Medium-plus carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy/sticky, fairly crisp, and slightly tangy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.3%. Overall this is a very nice fruited saison. All around nice white bread, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, peaches, and moderate pale/wheat malt flavors; very smooth, fairly crisp, and refreshing to drink with the mellowly bitter/spicy/drying finish. Very flavorful and not watery for the ABV. Great classic saison yeast complexity with balanced peaches; nice pale/wheat malt backbone, minimal residual sweetness. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.

From the 11.2 oz bottle in a snifter. This decent little saison pours a
muddled lightly hazy pale amber with a moderate head of white foam
that settles to a thick ring, thin layer, and displays some nice light lacing.
Nose of cracker, light doughy yeast, subtle orchard notes, mild pepper hints,
and a subtle touch of banana notes fro the esters. Flavors expand vastly on
the nose with banana and lightly ripened but still hard peaches that have
touches of orange zest and cracker notes that fall into a dough ridden blanket
of yeasty bread with subtle white pepper and faint herbal hop notes. Very nice
mouth feel; medium light body, medium light carbonation, and a lightly dry
fruit touched cracker finish.

Overall, a solid little brew that is worthy.

Cheers

From the bottle into a Spencer glass, it pours a nice hazy orange amber with a modest head, quickly diminishing to a thin ring. Peach in the nose. Taste includes a bit of peach in a light bodied beer.

Mild aroma of hay, grass, and peach. Pours a slightly hazy orange/amber with a thin white head. Light bodied, with lively carbonation. Mildly sweet, with a strong note of peach. There's a little amount of earth notes in the finish. Overall, not a bad fruited saison.

Interesting beer. Unfiltered and slightly hazy light copper-orange body. Smell is classic saison, with grain, a bit of spice, touch of leather, biscuit, along with a slight peach juice presence. Flavour follows; peach rings, touch of grain, spice, trade leather, a bit of lemon and bread. Mouthfeel is medium lighter bodied, good carbonation, slightly dry. Solid peach saison, nothing insane, but it'll do the job.

best before 1/18/19

Pours a decent foamy fluffy almost 1 finger head that fades at a slower pace, bit of lacing, hazy honey tan color

Nose brings a nice Belgian farmhouse saison, earthy, farmhouse almost funk, mild peppery phenols, some fruity esters, apple pear, little citrus, doughy cracker wheat malt, gristy cracker malt, no peach

taste brings big earthy farmhouse saison, Belgian fruity farmhouse with a bit of earthy saison funk, plenty of fruity esters, apple, pear, citrus, touch banana, some peachy stone fruit in the background, hard to get much peach but it's there just barely above the level of the fruity esters, some mild peppery phenols, gristy doughy malt and wheat, a bit of spic bitterness late, finishing very dry, a bit more bitterness and peachy flavors, as it warms the peach comes out more but it's more like the canned peaches I had as a kid.

Mouth is med bod, plenty of fizzy carbonation

Overall not bad, pretty nice base Belgian saison, peach started very light but increased as it went thankfully, but was more like canned peach than fresh juicy peach, still a decent beer but not earth shattering.

Picked up a bottle of this at Julio's.

A - Poured into my Duvel tulip a nice crystal clear lighter golden hue with a thin half finger white head that fades slowly to leave a light, creamy blanket.

S - Aromas of light barnyard funk, incredibly faint peach gummy candies, really light grains, faint malt sweetness. Smells like a super subtle saison.

T - Taste is similar to the nose. More malt sweetness, flashes of toasted grains, more of the barnyard funk. Incredibly faint peach candy and blossoms. Far too subtle. Finishes slightly sweet.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, body is very light making it comes across as quite thin.

O - It's actually a very pleasant saison but the peach is practically nonexistant. Incredibly unfortunate.
