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

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.

22oz bottle. Hazy amber orange body with some white head. Nose is all peaches and brown sugar - flavor is fruity with some caramel malt and a dry finish.

ChainGangGuy (4375) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 16, 2012
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?

Light orange appearance, decent head. Aroma of slightly smoky molasses and a lemon note. Flavor is, well, odd. Biscuity malt, more odd smoky molasses notes, yet dry, and lemon running through it. There is also a strange note that I can only describe as slightly cooked peach peel. Perhaps an unpleasant peach note would describe it better. Just a strange set of flavors that seemed to compete rather than complement. The other odd flavor I couldn’t put my finger on probably came from the Brett. Not bad, just strange.

pantanap (3357) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 15, 2012
22oz bottle. Thanks to dan for sharing... Pours a somewhat hazy orange brown hue and topped with a creamy white head...aroma of lightly tart pale apricot, not so much peach. More of a strong American, lightly oaked... And the flavor continues on through the flavor. Slightly tart but mostly sweet. Not too big bodied. Ok.

wedgie9 (1937) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Tasted on 9/13/12 from a capped 650mL bomber bottle purchased at Midtown. Pours very bright orange with a thick white head that slowly recedes to thin lace, leaving thick residue along the inside of the glass. The nose is peach puree with some bread malt, a spicy yeast character, and just a touch of brett funk. The flavor is a bit more funky and spicy, with the malt and peach showing very dry and playing second fiddle. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long spicy brett and peach finish.

maley1 (781) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 15, 2012
Slightly cloudy yellow/orange pour with small off white head. Aroma of peach, citrus, and yeast. Taste of overripe peach, lemon citrus, orange peel, caramel and yeast, finishing quite dry. Pretty good beer.

Draft at sb. Pours a cloudy medium amber with a dense and creamy off white head. Mildly funky fruity peach nose. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Nice fruity funky mid palate, light sweet fruity finish.
