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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a golden yellow color with a small white head. The aroma is sour peaches and brett. It smells great! If I only smelled it I would think I was about to drink a sour. The taste is initially peach followed by alcohol. It’s definitely a sipper. A little sweet, not really sour at all. Really good, but I could only have it every once in a while

Happy LA Beer Week! This bright orange beer has a nice bit of peach taste and sugar followed by a very Belgian vanilla medicine taste. Very much saison.

Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. Almost clear golden with a thin white layer. I smell brett and peach. Those are tasted along with plenty of malts. This is subtle and pretty good.

Pours a Golden Orange. Nose of Lemon with candied peaches and barnyard funk. Starts out with a honey nectar sweetness with fresh tart peaches and Brett funk. The sweetness hangs out to the finish. Finish has some burn and booziness. Like a Peach brandy with funk. A little on the sweet side.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 ounce bottle - $7.99 at Lucky’s in Woodstock, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a hazy, pale golden body with a small, quickly receding, white head.
Smell: Slender malts enveloped in fragrant peach juices and noted alcoholic waftiness, with light notes of sweat, citrus, and, to my surprise, even a bit of the molasses with some dedicated sniffing.
Taste: Pale malts with a touch of baguette, dried straw particles. Slight honeyish sweetness alongside the bold peach juice taste. Citrus burst midway. You’ve got a bit of tartness here, but it seems more a product of the peach juice than any brett action. A little molasses, a little spiciness that’s aided by the ramped alcohol heat which gives a clear hint of schnapps on the crispish, drying finish. Subtle acidity with the continued alcoholic heat in the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-plus carbonation.
Overall: A fair brew that’s interesting enough, though I would’ve preferred it with less alcohol, as there’s a little hotness present. Don’t feel particularly like a saison, how about just Belgian Hodgepodge?
