3.15/5 rDev -10.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 2.75
12 ounce bottle
Appearance/ 2 full fingers of tannish foam that dissipates to a thin froth. Dark amber but clear. Nice carbonation.
Smell / Big peaches out in front. Pears. Really fruity.
Taste/ The first and biggest thing you get is peaches but they tell you on the bottle they use Texas peaches in the recipe. There is some hop bitterness at the end but to me the fruitiness kind of overpowers anything else that may be there.
Mouth Feel / Medium bodied and creamy smooth.
Overall / I gave it a 2.75 on this as I am not a big fan of fruit flavored beer not because it is a bad brew. I am sure that the brewer achieved what he was going after. Overall I think it fits into it's style but I would rather have a beer that has more beer flavors than fruits. That is just my preference.
