3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours hazy orange with white head. Aroma is fruity, hints of peach and malt. Flavor doesnít seem peachy, just fruity, malt back bone, estery, hints of citrus peel, if it didnít say molasses on the bottle I may have over looked it covers up the advertised 9.4% abv very well, wouldnít have guessed above 6.5%.....also, has a light sweetness. Medium mouthfeel with fizzy carbonation. Overall, im starting to think this Lips of Faith series is going down hill.....is it tasty? Well, yeah. I didnít come into this one with high expectations thank god, but it is enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained white head, with extensive lacing, over a slightly hazy, gold (SRM 5) body.......nose is light citrus, light green peach, barnyard, clove, vanilla, hints of biscuit........taste is light citrus, very light peach, clove, vanilla, finishing with a dry fruit layer....mouth feel heavy of medium, alcohol hidden, carbonation low. This falls well into the newly created (by the brewers, not the judges) style of Imperial Saison. These are big beers, with heavy fruitiness, from a variety of sources, that are not fruit, but use them to some extent. For this one, the Brett is hidden in the melange of other ingredients, but it adds that twinge, creating a very nice brew. BJCP 7/3/15/4/7

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured into a Tulip from a 22 oz. bottle.
A light orange-gold color with a very thin head. A yeasty citrus aroma, not really smelling any of the peach at all. The carbonation leaves a slightly harsh feel on the tongue. A slight oily finish is also left on the roof of your mouth. Fruity citrusy bite at the front taste and quickly fades. Peach is noticeable but not prominent. With a name like íPeach Porch Lounger,í I was expecting more of a peach flavor to it, but it does blend well with the lemon.
Allow it to warm up a little bit, the aroma and sweetness come out more.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Starts with a soft peach aroma and a lovely light orange color...taste is kind of a weak mix of peaches with a slight Brett funk. OK stuff.

On tap @ Chuckís 85th. Pours cloudy yellowish golden with thin head. Aroma is lemons and pale sweet malts. Taste is peaches, tart fruits, some faint Belgian sweet malts, and a light dry body. Different. Nice Saison dryness and fruit notes.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle from papago 8/30/12.
hazy orange brown with a soft off white head.
the nose is kinda vomit-y at first...followed by a bunch of cooked apricot and peach sweetness, lemon peel, malt sugar, spicy hops, a little bretty/concrete and some horsey business but not dry or funky per se.
the palate is wrought with sugar and fruity....the flavor is very banana-like along with sweet peach, pale malt and spicy hops with a light tartness on the finish.
the texture is thick and oily making the mouth feel kinda goopy and not pleasant. something about the body is off to me....it lacks the crispness and airy business i love from the style. meh. 7/4/5/2/12

Tap, slightly hazy golden pour. Sour aroma, canít pick anything else out after trying so many other beers today... A little grapefruity. Not a fan.
