3.5/5  rDev -0.8%

A - Poured out a burgundy color with a one-finger, off-white head of fluffy foam. It left minimal lace.

S - It smelled of peaches, maltiness and overall was fairly sweet. Not a bad smell, but it just didn't have any dunkelweizen aroma.

T - It tasted of peaches, malt and some crisp wheat flavor came through here. Mild yeastiness.

M - It was fairly crisp and sharp. A light bodied ale that is very easy drinking.

D - This is an interesting beer. Some dunkelweizen flavor with peaches mixed it. I would drink it again. It could be something to have on hand for guests.

Pours a reddish-tan with a hefty head which dwindles to ~1/4inch. First smells strongly of peaches, slightly nutty and then peachy lingering. Tastes similar to smell, except tastes more like a dunkelweizen beer. Does not smell all that much like beer to me. The taste is not too strong, with a slightly wheaty finish precluded by light hoppy bite. Feels a bit to fizzy, I could have gone for a slightly greater viscosity with less fizzy carbonation. Overall, a fun beer to try, but not something worth going out of your way for. Very cool bottle, though!
