New Belgium Peach Porch Lounger

| September 20th, 2012 | No comments

Peach Porch Lounger is New Belgium’s most recent Lips of Faith beer. This beer is a collaboration beer between New Belgium and musician G. Love.  Check out the video talking about the collaboration here.
The beer is a saison style brewed with molasses, lemon peal, and peach juice.

Right off the bat, this beer shows signs of Brettanomyces used in secondary. The funky, tropical fruity yeast is also complemented by a fruity aroma typically attributed to peaches and other stone fruits.

This beer has an incredibly complex taste. Fruity and floral flavors along with a spicy finish from the yeast. Along with the peach, there are also hints of pineapple and lemon peal flavors. The peach juice blends well with this beer, giving it a nice, sweet compliment, but not overpowering the other elements.

The malt gives this beer a bready flavor. The 9.4% alcohol gives this beer some heat. The yeast, peach juice, molasses, and lemon peel give this beer a complex and hearty fruitiness. Together, this beer tastes like a fresh, warm biscuit topped with fruit marmalade. Absolutely delicious.
