4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft and growler from the brewery. What an absurdly good fruit beer; having had this and their kriek, this little brewery in podunk PA is making some of the best non-sour fruit beer in the world, I’d have to say. Cloudy (who would’ve guessed it) peach colored pour with minimal bubbly head. Nose and flavor both bring enticingly complex sweet stone fruit notes, not only the sweet nectary flesh, but also tart skin and pit, almost as if sucking on the pit after the last bite. Touches of bready character mixed in as well. Stunning stuff.

Hazy and peachy with some lacy lacing. A really delicious fruity concoction. A special additive makes your brain think it’s okay to spend $27 on a growler of the stuff. This is almost as good as the Framboise.

4.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft at brewpub. Pours a hazy yellow with a thin white head that leaves some lacing. Notes of peach and malt on the nose. Massive peaches on the tongue with a hint of the yeast as well and a slight hint of farmhouse. Finishes clean. I don’t know if this is a saison but it’s damn good. It may be too good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2012 A: Peachy/orange/amber. Not surprising! No head, no signs of carbonation or lacing.
S: Peach juice. Sweet honey. Nothing like farmhouse funk, but inviting nonetheless.
T: Much like the nose, this screams juice. Peach + a tart kick + yeast finish = delicious.
M: Juicy, thick, not much carbonation. Real sweet and tart on the tongue. Missing the dry refreshing quality of saison (although the sweet, juicy refreshing quality ain’t bad).
O: A unique and top notch brew.
Serving type: on-tap

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Picked up a growler of this at Selin’s a few weeks back.
Pours a somewhat cloudy light apricot color with a white head. Smell is of sweet peaches, very reminiscent of a peach Jolly Rancher with a touch less sweetness. Somewhat one dimensional, but this is one of the things that they do best--great fruit beers that offer up exactly what their name tells you they will. Taste is similar to the nose, although the peach flavor is just a tad bit cloying in these concentrations without much else backing it up. Mouthfeel is light and refreshing. Very drinkable. Very nice and refreshing during the hotter months.

The aroma of syrupy canned peaches and a bit sour. The appearance is thin peach amber with almost no head. The flavor is perfect sour with strong sweet notes like the canned peaches. It has a syrupy medium body and slight but pleasant bite on the sourness.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
32 oz mini-growler filled at the brew pub. Misty orange brown with off-white suds. Nose is peach jam and toffee; simple but mouthwatering. Medium body with a sparkle but not as syrupy as expected. Starts off with juicy sweet peaches, candi and bubblegum. Dry finish with bitter grape peels and peach pit. A great afternoon refresher but would be equally at home in a gourmet meal served in place of a sorbet.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap at brewery. Pours a hazy orange with a smaller creamy white head that laced. Aroma of fresh peaches right off the tree, light saison spicy yeast notes. Great peach aroma. Flavor is sweet peach pie made with super fresh peaches. Pie crust and all. Some saison spicy notes. A little sweet for a saison but totally works with this beer. Also tart and lightly funky.

Growler; thanks to bvc for sharing; pours dull gold with slight haze throughout and faint white head; nose is on the light side with a sweet mix of peaches and apricots; yummy flavors of fruit syrup and candy peaches; kind of a straight up peach fruit soda with no spice, yeast or other saison characteristics; light wheat, fresh peaches, soft mouthfeel and light body; they definitely do something right with fruit at Selins Grove

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz handbottle from treyrab, thanks for the hookup Trey. Rating #37. Pours light gold with an almost green glow to it, it’s actually pretty close to looking like honey, very interesting color. Nice fruity peach aroma, it also had a touch of apple as well, kind of similar aromas so it could just be the peach on it’s own. Sweet and juicy, almost like a peach juice with bubbles, very light and pretty easy to drink, but it was just the slightest bit sweet, not bad otherwise. (1088)
