look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4

Poured from the bottle into a standard pint glass.

A- looks medium brown, but is beautiful dark red when held up to light. Vaguely off-white head that disappears quickly but leaves nice lacing.

S- Lots of peach and a little bit nut.

T- Love this. Starts with loads of peach, has a very round, nutty taste in the middle, and finishes with a little citrusy-pine hops.

MF- Meh. Not bad, but a little under-carbonated to be great. If you're looking for a sweetish session brew, the mouthfeel makes this a decent choice.

Overall- this is one of my favorite beers, i look forward to it every year. I might love it less if it was available year round, but drinking a few six-packs in the winter months is a blast. Perfect for Christmas parties for BA's and beer-normies alike.

3.58/5  rDev +1.7%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle poured in a Kasteel goblet.

Appearance- Dark brown to the eye, but when put to the light a dark blood red is revealed. White tiny head that disappears like a rabbit in a hat.

Smell- Tons of peach with toasted pine nuts.

Taste- Once again lots of peach but not to much to over take the actual beer itself. A piney hops on the back end.

Mouthfeel- Light mouthfeel that is very properly carbonated. Makes for a very easy drinker.

Overall- A nice tasty change of pace holiday beer. My biggest gripe is that I've had it 3 years in a row and the taste changes every single time. I would prefer more consistency.
