bottle from papago 8/30/12.
hazy orange brown with a soft off white head.
the nose is kinda vomit-y at first...followed by a bunch of cooked apricot and peach sweetness, lemon peel, malt sugar, spicy hops, a little bretty/concrete and some horsey business but not dry or funky per se.
the palate is wrought with sugar and fruity....the flavor is very banana-like along with sweet peach, pale malt and spicy hops with a light tartness on the finish.
the texture is thick and oily making the mouth feel kinda goopy and not pleasant. something about the body is off to me....it lacks the crispness and airy business i love from the style. meh. 7/4/5/2/12 barn0216 (550) - California, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Tap, slightly hazy golden pour. Sour aroma, can’t pick anything else out after trying so many other beers today... A little grapefruity. Not a fan. JPDurden24 (1675) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Cloudy orange pour, biscuit malt and apricot and peach aromas. Taste has a nice tangy bite and it is very, very good. travita (5006) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Bottle. Deep golden in color, clear, lacing off white head. The smell is a saison yeast, peach, fruit, and not bad. The taste is sweet, peach, fruit, yeast, and interesting. jkwalking05 (4740) - Arlington, Texas, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Hazy golden with a decent off-white head. Aroma is of grain, peach, lemon, tart, grass. Taste is tart with citrus and peach. Light grass, floral and fairly dry.

Thanks Jenny for sharing this. Pours to a glowing copper body with a foamy white head and some rapid carbonation. Aroma of peaches and lemon zest with some sweet sugars like a cinnamon molasses. Flavors are malty up front with some peaches and funk. After sitting on the tongue, unfortunately, there is a light metallic characteristic to it. I wouldn’t have known it had hominy grits unless you told me. Medium dry body with a sharp effervescence up front and a dry white wine like finish. As the beer opens up, it doesn’t have as much of that metallic quality. I wonder if age will make this beer better as the brett would make it funkier. rbfishstick (141) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Enjoyed at home from the cellar (bottle). Pours a peachy yellow-orange with a thick white head. It dissipated quickly leaving a thin white rings clinging to the glass. The smell is of sour peaches and tickles the nose a bit. It is creamy with some peach notes in the background. I little burn from the carbonation, but not distracting. A slight metallic in the aftertaste and not a dry finish. It leaves you with old fruit in the basement kind of taste. wlajwl (6816) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Aroma is peaches, spices and bananas/bubble gum. The flavor is peaches, spices and a mix of sweet and sour in the finish. kidmartinek (5000) - austin, Texas, USA - AUG 30, 2012
Tastes like a good beer more than anything. Its cloury apricot color and pours with a 1/2" head. The aroma is like sweet grain alcohol and some stiff Belgian yeast mustiness. Calling this new Belgium trippel would have been more fitting. I’m sure there’s all kinds of nice adjunct peaches in there but it doesn’t matter. Yeah, I can taste em but moreover I can taste all the funky mustiness the yeast imparts to this good brew. May just be new Belgium’s best on accident. -1 on the palate because its too sweet. Take the peaches out and it just might be even better. bytemesis (8451) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 30, 2012
Tap at Harry’s Lips of Faith Tap Takeover. Hmmm, this is interesting! Pours clear light amber with a small white head and good lacing. Aroma is yeast, a bit of funk, of course peach, and bready notes. Flavor is peach, yeast, somewhat undefined spicy and a noticeable lemon rind bitter finish.
