COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Peach Porch Lounger is the lovechild Saison of musician G. Love and New Belgium. The glowing orange beer is a groovy mix of peaches, hominy grits, molasses and lemon peel with pale and biscuit malts. Brettanomyces yeast brings a bold, sweet nose and the beer ends with a dry finish

Danyel (862) - Colorado, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Bottle. Clear Orange with white head. Smells peachy, wild, spicy. Tastes yeasty, creamy, a touch of sweet and sour, very carbonated. Dry. It’s okay, nothing outstanding, nothing terrible.

Fruity and sweet yet very boozy, good Fall beer in small quantities. Aroma could be more complex.

unclemattie (4222) - Georgia, USA - OCT 17, 2012
22oz bottle. Orange pour. Thin white head. Aroma of peach juice and Brett. Loads of Brett. Tastes of Brett and peach pits. Fruity tartness finish. not what I was expecting, but Brettanomyces makes it better. Great lyrics on the side of the bottle! (3492)

freeofthoughts (659) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - OCT 16, 2012
Tap pours mostly clear children yellow with white fizz. The aroma is musty grain and some sweet fruit. Taste wise it is peachy up front but turns into a musty cardboardy bittering dry Belgian golden ale. It is ok on the fruity side but the grain doesn’t balance the flavor and the earthy very dry herbal hops are very strong. The peachy sweetness sometimes pokes thru the dryness but it is a syrupy peach flavor. Overall not impressive but not a total failure. A bit over ambitious and confounding flavor profile.

Tap @ Hay Merchant. Golden-orange pour with a bit of head. Aroma of peaches, yeast and wet grass. Taste is similar and the components are good but doesn’t quite gel for me.

On tap at cloudy orange copper with small creamy off white head leaving sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is funk and peach. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet fruit and light tart with nice lingering dry finish. Easy to drink A very impressive saison from New Belgium.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 15, 2012
Bottle.
Pours a nice, thick cheddar orange with a thick white head and a latticework of lacing. Aroma is sweetened straw, barnyard dust, and a hint of toast. Flavor is weird mix of various fruits and a dusty stack of hay. Notes of lemon, peach, prune, and funky apple are in there. Average mouthfeel. One is enough.

SPDickerman (975) - Texas, USA - OCT 15, 2012
Pours orange with a medium sized white fizzy head. Smells peachy and a little funky. Taste is peach and apricot with a bit of funk. Light-bodied with a prickly texture and fizzy mouth-carbonation, New Belgium Lips of Faith Peach Porch Lounger finishes with a touch of fruity sweetness.

DuffMan (6886) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 14, 2012
Bottle, shared with my wife, poolside in Escondido. Peachy orange colour, lively off white head that laces thickly as it recedes. Aroma has only a hint of peach at the very start, maybe it’s a volatile ester, or maybe it just isn’t very prevent behind the earthy sweetness that is the core of this beer. More surprising than the lack of preachiness is the lack of sourness, or even tartness of any kind. I guess I just assumed this LoF series were all sours, or at least sourish. Not a lot of Bretty funk either. A little too heavy and sweet to really satisfy as a Saison. Overall, this was probably my biggest disappointment in the LoF series that I’ve tried.
