Thanks Jim.
Back of the bottle was stamped "08/21/17."
This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a pale glossy orange semi-peach skinned color with a quickly dissolving little white head leaving no lace.
The aroma wrapped together a clever sweet to sour peach flesh to skin character with a semi-strong clean vinous character touching down on some dry sweet oak and embracing a little bit of funk. Light apple cider with grassy notes.
The flavor dryly takes the vinous sour and sweet levels to meet the oaky and funky fruity attitude that had a semi-invasive white wine-like quality. Strong tart peach-like skin. Moderate sticky sour peachy flesh and skin in the aftertaste.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair sipping quality about it. Vinous character created some harshness with a slight astringency, but it was acceptable to me. Carbonation felt fine along my tongue. ABV felt as projected by the brewer. Acceptable sticky peachy flesh finish.
Overall, sour saison? Yes, that's what I would go with for this beer and quite good. It's one that I could come back to if given the chance.

Where fruit beers now seem to plague the craft beer scene, it wasn't always like that. Brewers have historically refrained from such use in beer and allow the malt and hops to do all the talking, except one. The brewers in the lowlands of Belgium have always embraced fruits to accessorize their sour ale for millennia. And that's what Casey Brewing does with their Fruit Stand series.

Peach Fruit Stand celebrates the fresh and radiant sweetness of the orchard fruit by jumping out with a tangy, acidic, sweet, candied, winey and peppery fragrance. Its hazy burnt orange color carries an impressive haze with a low lying skirt of froth to frame the rim. Its sweet taste is equal parts malt and fruit as those pastries, white wine, doughy and savory sugars carry a light weight onto the early palate.

As the middle palate unfolds, its sweetness rapidly retreats and the beer's sour and fruit forward taste begins takes over. Concentrated peach flavor becomes that of macerated, stewed orchard fruit with hints of white grape, green berry and light marmalade. As the sourness brings to rise, the beer's briny, oaken and funky fauna comes to life. Cider, chardonnay and gooseberry round the finish and provide a spicy, earthy and funky closure.

Medium-light in body for a sour ale, the beer continues to play lighter and drier on the palate from its sheer acidity alone. Peppery oak and peach acidity teases the back of the tongue and unlocks even more of the earthen perfumes of dusty woods, saddle leather and wet burlap.

750ml cork and caged bottle, dated 10/7/2015, Elberta variety. Served in a Casey stemmed glass.

Pours a light yellow body with a slight orange hue, creamy and slightly hazy, tightly effervescent white head measuring about one finger, good retention, actually some lacing. Smells of a perfect balance of peach juice, mild grainy sweetness, moderate lactic acid, touch of oak, mild American funk, some peach skin. The peach is perfectly accentuated here. Flavour is an even better expression of the peach and the balance that is attained with the lactic acid and the grainy sweetness. Moderate peach flavour which is just perfect when balanced with the house flavours and the grain. Really well done, not a fainting willow nor is it an overbearing giant peach bomb. Wonderful. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, bright and slightly creamy, otherwise dry and refreshing. Mild peach juice flavour follows on the end with a touch of lactic acid. Very drinkable. Overall, another great fruited saison from Casey. I'm starting to think that everything I get from them is going to be great, it's kind of like watching Stephen Curry shoot a 3. Interestingly, I thought this was a more balanced and a touch better drinking experience compared to the same Elberta CFP Peach that I was able to try a few weeks back.

Pretty tasty stuff, but I'm blanking a bit here.

Not as jammy as Peach Family Preserves, more complexity but a bit buttery (this was back on Black Friday of 2015). Compared to their other Fruit Stands, it's one of my favorites, but Apricot is still the best.
