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.
