Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of oak, peaches and yeast. Medium body with flavors of vinous oak, peach, yeast and malt. The finish is funky peach and yeast. Good beer all around.

when i sit around and pour, the aroma of red wine and peach emanates. . nothing too crazy here, the mouth is satisfying. . last beer of the night, good night. now to go get a nightcap next door at the avenue pub.
.. . after I die, wherever my spirit goes,i’m going to try to get back and visit my skeleton at least once a year, because, ‘hey, old buddy, how’s it going?

Bottle... Pours hazy and dirty-orange with a small, creamy, white head. The aroma is a mélange of peaches, damp fallen-wood mustiness, and some pretty nice funkiness. Medium to full-bodied with tickling carbonation. The flavor is lightly sour, moderately sweet and loaded with juicy peaches. Tangy, tongue-numbing finish. Bottle courtesy of darkguardian!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer here, this beer I had @ the Grand Tasting... Compliments of phaleslu of course.
Pours a sort of lightly hazy orange with a good head and nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is funky and oaky with a nice bit of peach fruitiness and some light earthy character.
The flavor is peppery and tart. The beer is surprisingly dry with a light breadiness, some oak and some light peach character.
Not especially indicative of what I think of when I think of Saison, but nice beer for sure.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle via my 2013 "Staff" membership. RIP to a fairly priced, but badly run, reserve society. Pours a deep golden orange with moderate white head. Fruity, not really peach, aroma with some plum and honey, dry white wine. Taste is cabernet wine over and over with a slight sourness at the finish with the peach not coming into play much. Very bitter as it finishes. Not nice overall.
