Holy shit this is the best fruit beer I have ever tasted. Saison? I don’t think so. Fucking bad as fruit beer? Oh hell yeah. This beer is all fresh peaches and apricots. I can taste tart stone fruit skins and sweet flesh of said stone fruits. Holy crap this is just plain amazing.

Huge thanks to FooFaa for sending such a rare treat my way. Growler poured into my DFH snifter produced a short lasting white head that faded away to nothing. The color of the brew was a wonderful hazy peach/orange.
The aroma of peach is right in your face as you bring the snifter to your mouth. As it warms the funk comes out in the smell as well. The flavor is really complex. Yes it fruity, of course it’s peach but the tartness of the saison adds a wonderful dimension to the brew. Keeping the sweetness of the peach at bay and making this brew an incredible drinking experience. The feel is my mouth is the light side of medium with a slight carbonation present. Crisp and clean would be a good way to sum it up.
I will have no problem finishing this growler. The alcohol is light enough to drink a couple of these and it is tasty enough to want to. A great brew that I would love to have again.

Draft at Selins Grove Brewpub. Pours a hazy copper body with a white head. Peachy apricot like dried fruit candies that you can get in dehydrated bags at a supermarket. Sugar coated apricots and peach skins. Sweet and tart but not cloying at all. What an awesome fruit beer.

Pours a cloudy light orange colour with a thin white head. Flavor of peach, wheat and peach juice. Has a light tart but sweet flavor. Aroma is of sweet peaches, wheat and peach juice. So good my usually frugal self was compelled to buy a growler.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler. Pours a cloudy, glowing, golden-straw color. A small, foamy, off-white head settles to a swirly, thin film, leaving virtually no lacing behind. The aroma explodes with fresh, juicy, sweet peaches, bright and sparkling with a light tartness and some tannic, grapey, wild skin notes. Flavors are sweet and extremely fruity, with a very soft, fresh grain background allowing the sweet-tart peach to do dominate. Hints of tart bacteria from the peach skins creep in, intensifying on the semi-dry finish. Medium bodied and sweet, with delicate carbonation, it drinks almost too easily, save for a hint of stickiness. I’m not usually a fan of sweet fruit beer, but this one is really well executed. Very reminiscent of the New Glarus fruit beers, only with peach instead of raspberry and cherry.

growler. thank you so much bvc! pours a cloudy dark gold with no real head, lace, or legs. gorgeous, lush, dense peach nose. no real saison notes. more like peche de peche. creamy, fairly flat medium body. lusciously delectable spanking fresh peach pie mid palate. if its better with saison yeast, yay, but any saison touches at this point are subconscious. mild sweet finish. drink this beer all day and all of the night.

Growler sent to me by kramer, thanks man! Cloudy hay like yellow with a thin white ring around my tulip. Nose is super ’juicy’. Tons of peach, hints of apple, with a tiny bit of wheat. Wow, tons of delicious peach and not much saison hiding out in there. What a kick ass fruit beer and these guys really know how to make them. Thanks Jason.

Growler thanks to the Cheeseman. This is a pretty good fruit beer. Pours thin, but a very peachy cloudy yellow. The peach is very present but not overwhelming. Drier than many fruit beers, it is tart and not overly sweet. I would like it to be more tart, but it is still very refreshing and enjoyable.
