COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An extraordinary fruit beer with a seductive peach aroma, tart and sweet, intense yet refreshing. Made with pale malted wheat, peaches, and natural peach juice in celebration of the end of the summer season.

One of the most unreal delicious beers I’ve ever had, loaded with sweet fuzzy fresh peach flavor and a mild tartness. Excellent example of how to make a great fruit beer; not too overbearingly sweet.

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).

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.

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.

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.

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.

On tap @ Selins Grove. Hazy golden with a pure white head. Aroma is fresh peach, earthy yeast, and wheat. Sweet flavor with some sourness. Light to medium body with very active carbonation and a dry tart mouth feel. This was an amazing beer, hard to describe how good it was. The peach flavors were the most natural fruit flavors I’ve ever had in a beer and never got too sweet or overpowering. Master craftsmanship.

Draft @ brewpub. Golden body with medium head... sweet peach aroma... flavor is filled with tart, yet sweet peach flavor... not as tart as a festina peche... lower alcohol content which makes it very easy to drink..

on draft at the brewery. Tons of good not fake peach flavor. Laura loved it, lots of smilies. Was sweet but not sugary, good tartness.

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.
