This is Emeraude 9/5/16 batch.

This one pours a light and hazy golden yellow color, with a small head, and a bit of lacing.

This smells like funky hay and citrus, nectarine, oak, and honey.

This is just about as good as it gets when it comes to fruited saisons- the nectarine flavor is perfect here- very prominent, even at two years old. There's a great citrusy funk, some lemon candy, orange and sour grapefruit, wih a touch of oak. It's delicate but very expressive and bold at the same time.

This is pretty light bodied, clean, spritzy, and crisp, with a great level of drinkability.

Casey just kills me. I always need more Casey beers.

Casey are are kings of the fruited brews.
Hard to beat that huge fruitiness, it feels like bitting in the best Nectarine that you have ever eaten.
Really juicy, superb tartness (not too much if you are wondering) just the perfect balance between everything, my favorite beer from Casey from now on.

Emeraude bottled 9/15/16. Hazy yellow-orange, decent lacing and ring of bubbles. Smells like nectarines. The flavor is super fruity, pretty much all nectarine and so juicy it is like you bit into one. It has a tartness to it I guess but it seems like the nectarine is stealing the show here. I don't really get any oak or funk just fruit. This is a quality beer. Too bad Glenwood Springs is so far away or I might actually seek out these beers more often.

Blind taste: I had a very difficult time discerning the nose on this beer. It's pungently sour, but the variety of fruit had me slightly baffled. My girlfriend insisted that it was pineapple. Perhaps we're bad at this game. When I finally checked the bottle I was shocked to find that, per style, the beer is actually a saison. I've been encountering that a bit more frequently - sours masquerading as saisons. How confusing! I avoid saisons, generally, so I feel quite pleased that this one is so excellent. Gives me a bit more motivation to branch out.

The mouth feel on this beer is quite full and chewy - the sourness really blows up your taste buds, so don't expect to move on to some other beer style immediately. It really requires a palate cleanser and a bit of a rest afterwards. I'm still puzzling over the nectarine flavors - it certainly is nectarine, and I'm not sure how I missed that. Perhaps I need to eat more fruit and less chicken nuggets?

Casey Family Preserves - Nectarine packs the best fruit flavor of any bottled offering I have tasted from their brewery. This might be one of the golden batches that Casey has produced.

This is one of those beers that you try and the nose is just burned into your brain. It offers such juicy, fresh nectarine that you just do not find very often. Overall a spectacularly beer that really puts the featured fruit on full display.

750 mL bottle. Emeraude Nectarine bottled on 9/15/2016. Clear golden orange. Smells of really nice nectarine. It's got just a hint of yeasty plastic, but much less than other Preserves treatments that I've had. Tastes aggressively sour. Lime tartness. Nectarine flavor is still nice, but not as delicate or sweet as it was in the nose. The plastic is also gone. Medium body. It's good and the nectarine aroma is remarkable.

Nothing like this. Favorite sour by far. Smells of Nectarine with a perfect amount of funk. Taste follows and lingers with that Casey signature funk. Not too sour like all Casey. Perfect beer. Wish I had 50 bottles of this
