3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Churchkey. Pours a mostly clear hazy apricot with small bubbly head. Nose and flavor marked with stonefruit flesh, hints of nutmeg and sweet molasses, touches of citrus, and some bready malt. Mouthfeel has good effervescence, just a hint of the high ABV on the finish. Fine, but nothing to write home about.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of peach and sweet biscuit malts. Expected yeast notes from new belgium and little perception of brett at all. Appearance is slight orange yellow thin head. Taste is nose with a malty backend and quite sweet. Palate is a bit too sweet to be really really refreshing. Alcohol is well hidden. perhaps on a cool fall day but not a really great refresher.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Pours a clear amber orange with a thin micro film.
Aroma: Perfumy belgian yeast, fresh steaped grain, flowers.
Taste: New Belgian yeast, canned peach low hop spice. Alcohol well integrated/hidden.
Mouthfeel: Juicy, full bodied.
Overall: There wasn’t nearly as much complexity perceived compared to what was described by NB on this beer. With that said, on its on, it’s a very drinkable Belgian Ale. Would have liked it tart like Eric’s Ale, an amazing peach beer of Lips of Faith past.

22oz bottle. light haze in an orange colored beer under a small head. tart peachy nose with brett. flavor has a sweet molasses note beneath the bretty, tart, peach flavors but i think the molasses is also adding an unwanted cloying character too. it’s not bad, but it’s not really refreshing as i expected either. a bit jumbled.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Light orange pour, minimal carbonation. Light nose of Brett, white grapes. Nice flavors of peach juice, some funk, white wine characteristics. A little dangerous- very drinkable & not a hint of the 9% alcohol.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours clear light amber with a slight white head. Aroma is peach over light funk. Med body. Flavor is peach and funk, but there’s something suggesting treacle lurking in the background. Other than that it’s pretty tasty, and there’s enough earth/funk to justify calling this a saison. Finishes peach, mildly tart/funky. One of the better LoFs IMHO.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy gold, fair creamy white head / Delicate nose of honey, citrus, and brett / Medium body, fat with low carbonation, some sweetness with mild hopping, and only a hint of bitterness on the finish / Flavors of pineapple, peach, lemon, straw, clove, and horse blanket / Borderline cloying - needs more hopping.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at NB. Semi cloudy golden with a thin bubbly-foamy white head. The nose is kinda peachy and a little sour, with notes of Brett and oak. Taste is pretty full with sour notes of peach and funky oak (in a light way), a little grassy leafy bitterness, some light pale sweetness, and a lingering bactillic funkiness I wasn’t too fond of.

It poured a nice peachy golden brown. The head was well balanced to the amount that I poured. It is definitely a sweeter beer, and one to be sipped.
