12oz bottle poured into a weizen glass
A: Pecan-brown colored with a one-fingered head
S: Sweet wheat, a bit nutty, definitely peachy but it doesn't quite balance out
T: Tons of sweet peach. Too sweet, though. Some malt in the background but this is more like peachy candy rather than fresh peaches
M: Don't drink this before seeing the dentist... but schedule an appointment after you do
O: On paper the peach & pecan combo should work quite well but in practice it tastes candied and the sweetness is out of balance

Pours a dark reddish amber with a thin finger head that fades quickly with a decent amount of lacing. Gives off the aroma of beets or grapes. It's very sweet to the tongue. The taste is very similar to the smell, grapy with a hint of beets and citrus. The flavor doesn't last long however and you're not left with much of an aftertaste. But it's worth a try. I would certainly recommend it to a friend.
