A: Red-amber color. Poured a 1 finger tan head that dissipated to a broken skim. Lacing washed down the glass.

S: Pecans and sweet caramel. Peaches in the background with some muted spices.

T: Sweet light fruit; primarily peaches. Sweet malt comes through a little in the middle; did not detect a wheeat character I expected.Mild bitter finish.

M: Light-to-medium body. Ample carbonation. Crips and clean.

D: Flavorful and drinkable. The dominant light fruit sweetness hinder sessionablity.

This was the first holiday beer i saw this year. Bought it in late october, Tried one mid-nov.

Pours a nut-ruby color. off-white dirty looking head maintains alittle with little lace.

Mind carbonation sends peach jam on toaste to the nose. Toasted malts and pecan round out the flavor profile.

A mild hop with slight bittering leaves the mouth slight dry with lingering esters of peach.

Overall an interesting holiday beer id say by its self. A good reason to break out those tasteing glasses for family to try before they commit and waist a good beer.

Not sure why this was on the shelves in late August or why I felt the need to buy it but..so be it.

Pours a dark amber rubyish red color with an offwhite head.

Aroma is indeed canned peaches, caramel, molasses, apple cider and brown sugar.

Flavor is very sweet, very fruity (think baked fruit like apples, peaches and pears), brown sugar and/or caramel.

Its a bit cloying but not too bad. I actually enjoyed it despite the review seeming negative. Its a decent brew, a bit sweet, but not bad.
