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.
