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

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)

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 doesnít 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 doesnít 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.

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.

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.

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 itís a volatile ester, or maybe it just isnít 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 Iíve tried.

ben4321 (3749) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Location: 22 oz bottle from State Line, 10/14/12

Aroma: The nose is yeasty, with some peach for sure, some earthy notes, and a little funk
Appearance: It pours a clear golden-orange color with a small head and fairly light lace
Flavor: The taste is medium-plus sweet, it has a little bitterness, but the sweetness dominates
Palate: The body is light (leaning medium), it has a medium-plus carbonation, and a sticky mouthfeel
Overall Impression: Thanks, Pinsky! I enjoyed this one, but it is pretty darn sweet. It really hits the mark for a sweet and Belgian beer, but it may be too sweet to be truly enjoyable. I can see what they were aiming for here, but at the same time, they did not have a complete hit with this beer.

Wonderfully sweet saison. The peach flavor certainly comes through...almost tastes like a cider. The high carbonation adds to the cider feel. Would recommend to someone thatís says "but I donít like beer" . Would love to see this beer made as a lambic. Thanks for sharing ben4321
