Peach Porch Lounger
Saison / Farmhouse Ale
New Belgium Brewing / Fort Collins, CO

Released in 2012 as part of New Belgium Brewing's Lips of Faith series, this ale was crafted in honor of alternative hip hop and blues musician G. Love, a huge fan of the brewery who has been home brewing since high school. The hand-drawn label mimics the cover of The Hustle, the album containing his "Front Porch Lounger" tune this beer is named for. This saison contains peach juice, molasses, grits, biscuit malt, lemon peel and Brettanomyces yeast. The peach juice adds a sweet complement to balance the spicy Belgian funk from the yeast; and the bevy of other ingredients results in a complex, citrusy and tropical fruitiness. At a sturdy 9.4 percent alcohol strength, this beer is meant for sipping. Since G. Love wrote "Front Porch Lounger" on a porch, we recommend a porch as your perch for this peach.

Price: $8.49 for 22 oz
9.4 percent ABV
