3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle. Golden with a thin head when poured, with the head dissipating quickly. Aroma is peachy and malty, but fairly weak. The taste hits with an overwhelming peach flavor, with some caramel and sweetness to it as well. Taste some zest in there too. Sip on it, and it’s well balanced enough. Down a good gulp of it, and suddenly the alcohol burn kicks pretty noticeably. The finish has a nice, spicy hint to it and has a decent bite. I really like that finish and how the spices/yeast are fairly well hidden in it, but you can taste ’em all the same. Pretty solid, I’m not the biggest peach fan so any negativity I have for it is due to personal preference, not any fault of the beer itself. 9.4% alcohol.
April 12th, 2013 - New Belgium’s Peach Porch Lounger practically invites the drinker to a rocking chair, with an effervescence that matches champagne and a promise to cool the brow and palate. The aroma is tangy but light, sweetened with tangerines, and given an acidic limning with a light lime touch. There’s also a subtler sugar that tastes like lemon bread, or a delicate lemon frosting, supplemented by a tiny peach note. In spite of the traffic of bubbles, the palate feels soft, and even a little deflated. The flavor delivers light ephemeral touches of just ripened peaches, followed by tangerine in the aftertaste, which intensifies the sweetness, and where, oddly, carbonation reappears. Indeed, the aftertaste has more texture than flavor by the end. Overall, this comes across as a mild, unsweetened fruit beer, which is an interesting take, as if a lighter style like a blonde had been given just a squeeze of peach juice, newly plucked from the tree. hotstuff (5158) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 16, 2016
Rated on 8-03-2015 (Bottle) The appearance is a large white head that mostly diminished, transparent yellow body, very fizzy carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is brett, sweet, fruity, light peach, and light malt. The flavor is sweet, fruity, light peach, tart, tangy, and light malt. The mouthfeel is spritzy and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer is too tart for my liking and it is not a beer that I am interested in drinking again due to the tart taste. thedm (6178) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 3, 2015
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a softly carbonated transparent light orange brown colored body and a spiderweb lacing. The mild aroma was peach and musty. The crisp mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering fruity aftertaste. The mild flavor contained notes of peach and malt. An OK brew just nothing special. GreatDane1632 (1169) - North Dakota, USA - AUG 3, 2015
Rated based on notes taken 22 Sep 2012; On tap at the Gingerman, Austin -- Not a huge fan, pleasant, but only one pint please. andrewje41 (3876) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2015
Draft pour at Brouwers Cafe. Pours a bright clear orange color with a super fresh peach aroma. No surprises on this one. Obvious brett yeast present flavor and a ton of fresh peach and apricot. Quite refreshing but has a bit of a soapy side as well. Long, drawn out yeast flavor finish. Overall not bad.

Sampled at Slutfest Five. Clear golden pour with ring of sticky white head. The brett is really starting to come out much more than when it was fresh. Much very odd. peach and molasses are unusual pairings of flavors. better than when it was fresh, but still not quite for me. rdixon77 (2829) - Georgia, USA - APR 21, 2015
Old rating. Peach colored. Plenty of sweet near artificial peach, some barnyard and slight tartness. Too sweet to really be a winner. Just okay, demitriustown (1192) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - DEC 13, 2014
roma has got a decent hop character, peach, lightly yeasty, light lemon notes, and subtle malt notes. Appearance is a clear golden with a medium white head that diminishes into a soapy film. Taste is quite interesting, more of a robust characteristic, vinous, peach, lemon, sweet, lightly sour, and a nice hop backing that pokes through. Palate is medium mouthfeel, with a lingering aftertaste of fruit. Overall, Pretty nice stuff. I enjoyed it. Cheers! User37895 (3042) - - OCT 2, 2014
Pour was orange gold in color, white small head, weak lacing. Aroma of peaches and funk. Flavor of sweet peaches, light fruits, yeast, bread, raisins, light tart funk in finish. Mouthfeel was sticky and sweet, cloying, slight tart zing in aftertaste. Meh. slowrunner77 (12040) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 24, 2014
"Cloudy gold. Musty aroma of sour fruit and spice. Folks at the table expected something with this name to be light and refreshing, but it’s not. Strong sour fruit flavor is raisin and yeast bread with just a hint of apricot, not very peachy. Heavy & alcoholic, earthy & grassy. Coats the tongue, chewy, very fine carbonation. Enjoyed but not expected."
