In the cold of winter, we went to visit the folks at The Beer Shop in E. Longmeadow who expressed interest in brewing a saison for the springtime. This saison is brewed in the tradition of early French/Belgian saisons made of the farms. We added 20 pounds of fresh local peaches to the boil to add an essence of flavor and aroma that makes this brew special. So much so, you may only find this brew in a limited number of places.

We hope that you enjoy this beer that we feel truly embody’s everything that makes a farmhouse saison along with keeping a local element of Western MA with notes of peach fruit and citrus.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2014 A peach Saison with a very refreshing tartness to the flavor. Yeast adds minute nuances but luckily lacks the typical gaminess found in many Farmhouse Ales. Update 5/17/14 - cans: blech, total miss. all brown sugar and chewy yeast. nothing like the bottled version

I really wanted to like this one more. Aroma is peach, candy sugar, corn, and hay. Taste is oddly sweet and malty like a red ale without much saison character at all. Doesnt even taste like a saison yeast was used but im sure it was. The peaches at a nice fresh fruit note to the backend which tries to save this one.

22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours amber/copper with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of light peaches, a weird toasty maltiness, and some light spices/hops/fruits. Flavor the same. Average texture. The amount of peach is perfect, but the rest of the beer seems more like an amber ale than a saison.

Growler pour at the Beer Shop, East Longmeadow, MA during a meet the brewer event, 19/05/13. Hazed orange amber with a thin off white head that clears to the edge and leaves a film. Nose is spice, peaches, grass, tarte summer fruits. Taste comprises straw, earthy, farmyard, ripe peach, lightly soured fruits. Medium bodied with fine carbonation, crisp finish. Decent first stab at a saison, peach was evident througout without being over bearing.
