What the brewers say

“A classic saison—dry, crisp, fruity, spicy, and refreshing—with a dose of summer—peaches!”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “A healthy blend of saison fruity esters (lemon, apple), light peppery spice, and sweet peach. Medium earthy hops aroma. Floral esters (geranium). Light citrus ester notes.”

Flavor: “Heavy peach up front, as if I bit into a ripe one in the middle of August. The saison flavors emerge as the peach fades, with a noticeable peppery character and pleasant lemony ester. The peach comes back in the aftertaste, but is just subtle enough to encourage another sip. Perhaps a little sweet or heavy on the body for a saison, but overall tasty.”

Overall: “Good peach saison—big peach notes, classic black pepper with light esters, a bit of bitterness, and a moderately dry finish. An easy-drinking summer beer that’s a bit on the sweet side with a strong balancing bitterness. A solid combination of a well-crafted saison with choice selection of peach. Could finish drier for even better drinkability. Having said that, I liked it. I want to drink all of this.”
