Courtesy ChzMan. Growler. Hazy gold. White carbonation. A ton of peach. Sweet, juicy, lightly tart, lightly tannic, a bit of yeast. Medium body, balanced carbonation, finish is a bit drier than expected. Tasty. I’d like some funk, but still good.

growler courtesy of thecheeseman! Peach and mango on the nose, funky farmhouse aromas as well. Pours a cloudy gold with a thick white head. Slightly tart peach flavors, mild funkiness with a sweetness of candied peaches, crisp with hints of pepper. Very nice.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a slightly cloudy bright golden orange/ripe banana golden yellow color with some clear golden hues when held to a light source and a one finger frothy, creamy head that slowly fades into a lasting ring. Nice sporadic chunks of soapy lacing.
Slightly earthy aroma with some nice spiciness and some subtle bready yeast. Crisp with a peppery presence and sweet crisp peach presence. There is also some other light fruit notes; apple and pear. Not much alcohol in the nose. Slight grass funk with some straw but the peach really shines through without seeming syrupy or cloyingly sweet.
This is surprisingly very full bodied with a MASSIVE amount of sweet cirsp peach flavor that dominates throughout. The body is creamy and there are some funky tart earthy notes as ell as some peppery spice that provide a nice touch but this beer is all peach. Even though the peach flavor dominates, it is a very organic natural flavor and has none of the artificial syrupy sweetness that generally is found in fruit beers. The ABV is completely undetectable, making this beer extremely drinkable. I highly recommend this to fans of New Glarus Wisconsin Belgian Red and Raspberry Tart.

Draft at brewery. Hazy gold, large fluffy white head. Peaches and cream nose with hints of malt and citrus slightly marred by light diacetyl. Lightly tart citrus and heavy peach rule the sweet flavor, light yeast being the only saison-like character. Lightly sticky but very refreshing. Nice fruit, not as overly sweet as the the Phoenix Kriek but also lacking the depth and balance.

On tap at the brewpub on 10/25/08: Pours a hazy copper orange with a well-lacing white head. Aroma of sweet sugary peach and caramel malt with some light tartness and doughy Belgian yeast. Body starts with good fullness and sweet fruity peach sugars with good mild tart balance and authentic yeasty character before a sweet-tart finish. A pretty nice fruit saison.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy gold with a thin bubbly white head that lasted through the first two sips and completely disappeared. Pleasant fruity aroma with some light peach detected. The flavor is both sour and sweet, with a bit more emphasis on the sweetenss. It is a fruity sweetness, not from sugar. There is some peach present, but it is quite mild and I’m not sure I would have picked it up if not for the name of this beer. Overall, a tasty and enjoyable beer.

Tap. Aroma of orange seeds, peach, pulp. Flavor very much seedy with lots of tart peach. Fleshy peach also plays in, lots of different aspects of the fruit involved in this one. Great stuff.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy light orange with a thick small white head. Aroma of sour peach seeds, Beligian yeast, and lots of pulp (some orange pulp). Flavor is of sweeter peach and peach juice with a touch of orange seed, sugar, wheat malt, whipped cream, and sourness. Natural fruit, not artificially sweet. Similar to DFH Lestina Lente (but better!). This was my favorite beer from Selin’s Grove and it is absolutely awesome. Wow, best peach beer there is. I also had this mixed with the Organic Tripel so if you’re looking for a less sweet, less peachy version, I would recommend that. Top notch beer. If this was my local brewpub...I would be in heaven. This is worth the trip (especially so if you really like fruit beers).
