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

Bottle at home shared with my dad. Poured a golden peach color with a small white head that seems to linger. Good lacing. Somewhat funky, tangy, light peach, lemon peel, biscuit, and spice in the aroma. Taste is much the same, lightly tart, yeast, peach, clove, fruity, somewhat banana, and biscuit ending lightly spicy. Medium/sticky mouthfeel with great carbonation. The alcohol is hidden very well, and it becomes fruitier and spicier the more it warms up. Pretty nice and I kind of dig it.

Bomber from the local store. Real thin head, nice gold color. You can smell the fruit and brett well. There are a lot of subtle flavors upfront: peach, grits, malt, slight lemon and molasses. It all finishes off with a strong brett flavor; nice and dry. As another poster brought up Brett Beer, this beer finishes fairly similar. I personally love the brett. Above average beer here.

Tap @ The BeerMongers... Mourned pale orange with a thin head. Nose had some nice peach notes and sweetness. Thick body, which was most of the evidence of the higher abv, otherwise no big noticeabl alcohol taste for the strength. Tasted of peaches, but not too powerful, sweetness and grain husks, probably from some corn. Nice drinking, and very versatile. Hint of yeast spice and musk, but Neely funky. Should be interesting how it will evolve.

Bottle @ home picked up at Wilburís Foco. At first, I thought this was called Peach Porch Monkey and I recalled the whole Clerks II scene before realizing the real name. Whoops. Pours a bit hazy, golden orange appearance with a white head that dissipates quickly. I think that Iím just not a fan of the strain of Brett that New Belgium uses or I just get their Bretted beers too young because this has the same rotten fruit smell that I got in their creatively titled Brett Beer. Old peach pit, coconut, vanilla, lightly woody/herbal, light veggie/garbage aroma. Slightly chewy/biscuity, grassy/herbal/woody/veggie, apple/lemon, dull peach, vanilla flavor. The booze comes on a bit rough late as well. Thereís a slight tartness going on but it tastes underdeveloped and not all that drinkable. Of course, my opinion on Brett Beer varied quite a bit from other opinions, so I guess maybe Iíll just have a lower rating again.
