While I find Dunedin's brews a bit hoppy for my taste, this one suprised me. Overflowing at the first pop of the cap, it poured a lemon-orange color with a beautiful, thick head.
Apricot baby food was my first thought for the smell and truly honest to the scent of apricots. I didn't notice much peach in the smell, but I was rewarded later with the taste.
Again, apricot was my first flavor, followed by a nicely balanced hoppiness, and finally the taste of fresh, cling peaches. It had a nice citrus kick.
The mouthfeel was crisp and very dry. I don't know how quenching this would be on a hot day.
If you're in the mood for a fruity beer, I think it's worth a try. I enjoyed it and will drink it again.

First had: on tap at their brewpub
The brewer called this beer Dunedin's "biggest seller," and it's pretty obvious why, especially if you're a woman or college student. Not really my style, and I'm assuming this uses syrup or concentrate rather than actual fruit, but overall, this was not a bad fruit beer, IMO.
Hazy, golden orange color, with a fizzy white head that receded to a wispy layer, maybe leaving a few dots of lacing on the glass. Sweet but not cloying aroma, caramel malts and apricot/peach. Taste reflected the nose, bready malts, toasted wheat, apricot/peach essence omnipresent but not overpowering, light leafy hops in the background. Body was light edging towards medium, above average carbonation. Not something I'd go for again, but good in its own way.
Serving type: on-tap
