started off with some bread and yeast tones, but soon warmed to reveal a nice fruity presence. peach, banana and orange. Very sweet and well balanced. The taste started off very hoppy, again with the juicy peach and light oak mixed with , Pineapple, fresh tasting. Felt a bit slick when sipping, not watered down at all though. A slight hint of alcohol, but not bad, just enough to let you know it was there. The sweetness and bitter/sour were very well balanced off of each other, and in the malts vs hops war, there was no definitive winner in this one. This was a great brew, very drinkable, and very nice. I would love to try this on ta (640 characters)

3.38/5  rDev n/a
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Slips out of the modestly-sized growler a clouded, orange-hued body with a splotchy, white head.

Smell: Aroma smelling of cereal grains, subtle floral accents, sugary-sweet peach nectar, and rippling booze.

Taste: Sweet, lightly grainy maltiness with a trace of carefully selected corn kernels. Then, a jolt of peach schnapps. Flutter of pale malted barley. Spicy, earthy hops with a touch of bitterness. Modest peach taste on the back end, as the sweetness and alcohol warmth takes over. Finishes about the same, a bit syrupy.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation.

Drinkability: Bemusing enough for a reasonably-sized glassful, but the pendulum pounding back and forth between the heavy sweetness and alcoholic heat can only be charming for so long. (777 characters)

On-tap at CCB's Fruit in the Room event

This variant is neck-and-neck with tangerine for my favorite Batch #69 infusion. Though it looks and feels the status quo, the peach reveals itself in the aroma and flavor. In terms of aroma, it adds a soft fruit element that is very complementary. In terms of flavor it highlights a sweetness that I am less fond of, so it doesn't work as well to complement. (400 characters)

Thanks to Greg for this one!
A: Pour is a cloudy golden orange with a full finger of off white head that hangs around for some time.

S: A nice grainy spice, peaches and a touch of citrus.

T: Taste of yeasty spiciness on the tip of the tongue followed by a nice bit of sweetness and peaches.

M: Nice medium body that fills the mouth.

D: Nice brew and thrilled to have tried it. (380 characters)

A: Pours a hazy bright orange hue with a tall cream colored head. Nice retention and some leggy lace.

S: Wonderful aromas of dried peaches, candy sugar, and mild tropical fruit.

T: Very much like the aroma. Lots of dried peaches. Fruity yet slightly earthy. Nice sugary sweetness with a dash of citrus hops.

M: Medium in body, smooth, creamy.

D: Damn good, one of my favorite recent CCB treatments. (414 characters)
