Bottle thanks to @@ron. Pours slightly hazy peachy yellow, small white head, fizzy, dissipates quickly, minimal lacing. Aroma is peaches, bugs, skins, mineral water, light hint of sulphur. Flavor is medium plus tart, light plus funk, hints of sulphur, lemon, peaches. Good, not amazing.

Bottle at Extended Family tasting at Casey in May 2017. Aroma is super bright peach juice, vanilla, apricot. A bit on the sour side in the mouth but the peach flavor is authentic, juicy, and delicious. Carbonation is a bit mild and a little more acidic than I’d prefer. Mostly just peach and not funky like some of the other peach releases. Good.

Enjoyed at the Casey tasting at Jeff’s House on April 02. 750 mL bottle. The pour is a dirty golden yellow color with no head and no lace to be found at all. This just looks like it’ll be a sour bomb. The aroma smells like straight juice. There is a little fleshiness to it, but the tart peach is just spectacular. The light skin, heavy flesh, and monster juice make my mouth water just smelling it. The flavor is even better. It’s a little more delicately balanced, but the peach flesh, juice, and skins all just balance out beautifully with a tartness that is spectacular. The mouth feel is crisp and a little syrupy with a brighter carbonation and a lingeringly sour peach juice finish. Good lord this is spectacular.

Third place in the peach off. Blind peach tasting. Great peach flavors, strong peach aroma with a balanced saison base. Finish is light tartness with a moderate peach flavor.

Hazy opaque yellow orange in color... Aroma of lemon juice, peaches, peach fuzz, funk... Flavor is light and juicy, lots of tart peaches, peach skin, lemon, unripe stone fruit, apricots... Funk and tartness on finish... better than JK Fen Tao and FF Funk Fuzz... best peach sour I've had so far ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

My top beer in a large blind peach tasting. Hazy pale color with white head. Aroma is bright peach, some oak, a touch of a gueZe like sulfur funk, and mild citric notes. Taste is nicely tart with a solid backbone of sweet peach and yeasty mineralness. Really great great beer.

Bottle thanks to Russell. Pours a cloudy yellow gold with small white head. The aroma is peach pith, oak, funk, mineral. Thin body, peach, funk, nice tartness, very nice.

Sample at the brewery tour. Cloudy yellow, with a small, off-white head. The nose is smooth peach, bread pudding, salt, lemon juice, and white sugar. Sweet and fruity, with a mellow tartness. Medium body, clingy, sticky, and thick. This is a surprisingly easy drinking beer. The peaches are subdued and wonderfully aromatic.

On Black Friday a spot opened up at Casey’s ticketed tasting, so I made the pilgrimage to Glenwood Springs. Troy’s website has this to say about the beers in the Family Preserves series: "This beer is a double version of Fruit Stand. Where as Fruit Stand is designed to be a harmonious blend of Saison and Fruit, Casey Family Preserves are meant to be a fruit delivery vessel. 100% CO ingredients." Troy actually makes another series of double-fruited beers called "The Cut". But I like the Family Preserves better, possibly because there is no masking of fruit aromas by yeast aromas. As for the peaches, Glohaven is one of the "Haven" peaches developed by the great Michigan fruit breeder, Stanley Johnston. And Roza is a peach that was developed in Washington State and is named after the Roza Irrigation District in Yakima Valley. I suspect that when eaten out of hand, neither of those hardy northern peaches would compare to the Baby Crawford and Kit Donnell peaches bred and grown by Andy Mariani in Morgan Hill, California. But their flavors sure shine in this beer.
