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. Pours a golden elixir, carbonation rising diligently from the center of the glass like some chemistry experiment. The aroma is of wild fermentation and sweet perfume. This lovely sipper goes down easily, with the sweet peach up front in the yeasty swirl of flavors, ending quite neat and dry. Excellent! (#4825, 11/18/2012)

After just a bit of warming in the glass, the aromas of citrus and sweet yeastyness become apparent (very floral and mellowed after even further warming). Bright, clear on the first poor, with about a quarter inch of just not white suds. Itís a belgian for sure. Iíve had this for about a month, not sure when it was bottled, but the 9.4% abv has held this one nicely into October. The mouthfeel is fairly syrupy, along with the flavor but not overly so. Iíd say the sweetness from the added peach juice, and what must have been sparing use of molasses, may have served to tone done the brett funk... solid brew well representing the style and ingredients. I think itís incredible to have a high gravity Saison. Drink it.

22oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a lightly cloudy golden orange with minimal head. Aroma of baking spices, yeast, peach and some brown sugar. Taste is light tart. Peach and lemon with bready yeast, baking spices and brown sugar. Light bodied with a slick texture. Lively carbonation and a long warming finish. Overall, very good. Ill enjoy this for a while.

Bomber. Pours hazy gold with a medium collapsing white head that leaves some nice lace. The first aromas to hit these nostrils are creamed corn (must be the hominy?) and the brett, which imparts dark fruit and vinegar. Trademark New Belgium biscuity malt follows after sitting in the glass for five minutes or so. Taste is lightly sweet, lightly tart and dry with an umami presence; crisp and refreshing. Itís fruity--I guess that could be peaches; the lemon peel is a little more readily apparent. Carbonation is tightly knit, body medium. This is really tasty stuff, surprising considering hominy is one of the very few foods that I absolutely loathe.

Interesting. Served at a good temperature with a cream-colored, foamy head that soon settled and a little lace. Color is a clear amber with a variety of bubble trails. Aroma is fruit, yeast, a hint tart. Flavorís like nose, sweet is balanced by a sharp tang and some hop/yeast bitter; peach is a good match here.Good body and carbonation. Finish is like flavor, of average lenght and kind of boozy.

22 oz bottle. Pours yellow orange with a medium creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is peaches, musty yeast and brett.

The flavor is sweet citric peaches, champagne-like alcohol and some musty peppery brett. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with bubbly carbonation.

Overall, a very nice balance of peaches and brett. I like it.

Draft. Hazy golden yellow color, fluffy white head. Aroma of slightly sour peach and aprucot. Taste is sweet peaches soaked in white wine. Very nice.

Saison??? In aroma I guess, as itís pretty light on the peach smell. This seemed almost more like a peach sour or wild ale to me. Plenty of astringency and a bit of funk. Not overly sweet at all. Way surpassed expectations. First peach beer Iíd buy again.

On tap at cloudy orange copper with small creamy off white head leaving sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is funk and peach. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet fruit and light tart with nice lingering dry finish. Easy to drink A very impressive saison from New Belgium.
