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

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 ’Peach Porch Lounger,’ 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.

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 @ Chuck’s 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.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - SEP 2, 2012
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, can’t pick anything else out after trying so many other beers today... A little grapefruity. Not a fan.

Cloudy orange pour, biscuit malt and apricot and peach aromas. Taste has a nice tangy bite and it is very, very good.

Bottle. Deep golden in color, clear, lacing off white head. The smell is a saison yeast, peach, fruit, and not bad. The taste is sweet, peach, fruit, yeast, and interesting.

Hazy golden with a decent off-white head. Aroma is of grain, peach, lemon, tart, grass. Taste is tart with citrus and peach. Light grass, floral and fairly dry.

Thanks Jenny for sharing this. Pours to a glowing copper body with a foamy white head and some rapid carbonation. Aroma of peaches and lemon zest with some sweet sugars like a cinnamon molasses. Flavors are malty up front with some peaches and funk. After sitting on the tongue, unfortunately, there is a light metallic characteristic to it. I wouldn’t have known it had hominy grits unless you told me. Medium dry body with a sharp effervescence up front and a dry white wine like finish. As the beer opens up, it doesn’t have as much of that metallic quality. I wonder if age will make this beer better as the brett would make it funkier.

Enjoyed at home from the cellar (bottle). Pours a peachy yellow-orange with a thick white head. It dissipated quickly leaving a thin white rings clinging to the glass. The smell is of sour peaches and tickles the nose a bit. It is creamy with some peach notes in the background. I little burn from the carbonation, but not distracting. A slight metallic in the aftertaste and not a dry finish. It leaves you with old fruit in the basement kind of taste.
