22oz bomber. Drank one year after bottled. Very pale, filtered looking yellow-orange color, with a respectable, fluffy head. Some herbal astringency in the aroma, maybe a touch of peach. Quite an interesting beer. On one hand, it captures some mellow peaches and cream taste. On the other, it manages to capture some of the alcohol-laced fruity, funky, yeast tones of a Heller Bock. Mixing those two creates an elegant beast. The spices are apparent, but never dominating. Quite a cool beer ads135 (4587) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 20, 2013
A pretty decent saison. Much fruitier and less dry than the average saison. Peaches, citrus and bread. djd07 (14355) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 16, 2009
On tap at flying saucer. Has a cloudy yellow golden with a medium creamy white head that leaves behind good sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is a spicy fruit with a strong clove. Medium mouthfeel with a dry malt taste with a nice dry finish. Hides the alcohol well, a good saison from Avery.

Draft pours straw yellow with a fluffy head. Big fruity and yeasty aroma. Clean and crisp Belgian taste. Nice saison like taste. Did not get the peaches, but still a nice beer. tagz (337) - Alabama, USA - JUL 19, 2009
A really nice saison. Dry, crisp, light fruity aroma, some funky yeast character, slight bitter. Hazy yellow with fluffy head. Alcohol not noticeable. Sessionable. Tasty.

Bottle. Pours a light hazy yellow with a nice fluffy white head. Aroma of peaches, spice, and honey. Flavor is strong and spicy (not exactly sure which?), sweet fruit and a nice hoppy bitterness complete the flavor. Very nice and refreshing. I really like this one.

The slightest amount of haze with a light yellow color. Some amounts of banana and clove on the nose with weaker spices rounding the aroma. Tart flavors abound! Sour grape with dry creme feeling left for the finish. A most interesting saison. More fruit and spice than I’m accustomed too.. Slipstream (2608) - USA - AUG 4, 2009
A lightly malty, floral aroma. This saison is a sweet, fruity wheat beer with some citrus, apple, peach, and honey. It finishes up sweet and tangy, and leaves behind it a smile. Just the thing to have when a July twilight arrives, the sounds of neighborhood kids playing and dogs barking waft thru the windows, the happy glow of a stormless summer evening enveloping the beer rater as he holds up his glass to check on the lacing, the sounds of a broadcasted baseball game coming from the house next door, and all seems right in the world. A very nice summer brew, and another admirable product from Avery. Maddog (527) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2009
Draft at Jackie O’s in Athens, Oh. This beer is for Steve for without you, none of this would be possible. Pours a cloudy, light yellow with aromas of fruit and flavors of fruit, yeast and some spice. A good saison, very drinkable and refreshing and a tad better than the saison that I just had from Green Flash. However, this beer is a little disappointing for an anniversary beer.

Pours a fairly clear light straw color with a lively white head that takes a while to dissipate (there’s sediment in the bottom, but I haven’t gotten to it yet). Aroma is eventful with an earthy base, breadcrust, sourdough, hay, oregano, citrus (peaches, since the label mentions them), and a slight amount of other spice. Good aroma, not overdone in the exotic ingredients. Taste has an earthy malt base as well, slightly sweet, with bread/wheat, grass, hay, pungent yeast qualities (cheese, mushrooms, etc.), citrus, light spice. Finish dries out a bit with toast, citrus rind, bitter spices. Medium bodied, high carbonation (becomes prickly and loses creaminess if you let the glass sit too long), and suits both quaffing and sipping. Quite good! It’s sweeter (f as it warms, so keep it a little cool. I’m enjoying this quite a bit, it balances its ingredients and isn’t too sweet. Woo!
