On-tap at the brewery

A: Hazy orange brown in color served with no head, just ring of foam.

S: Obvious peach character and fragrant herbal notes.

T: The herbs are the first thing to hit the palate. Herbal tones are soft, yet have a slight spiciness on the finish. The herb flavor is then washed out by a growing fruity peach flavor. Finish is of fresh peaches and herbs again.

M: Somewhat light bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Slightly crisp.

O: I'm not usually into fruity beers, but this beer really hit the spot on this hot day. Super tasty and very refreshing.

A - Copper, hazy body, some transparency, a thin white head. No real lacing to be seen.

S - Fruit is front, mostly apricots, but also peaches. Very strong sweetness.

T - Fruit is foremost flavor, apricot again overpowering peaches, but peaches do peek through. There is some sweetness, but it coupled on the tongue with a pungent sourness.

M - A bit cloying, with drying the only thing keeping the beer from becoming overwhelming after a few sips.

O - The apricot flavor is full and rich. The more fragile peach flavors are harder to find, but they are there. Sweetness gives way to an abiding sourness.

A beer from Mt. Pleasant Brewing Company, my hometown. I actually tried the beer up north near Petoskey, The beer itself if full bodied and very sweet. It tastes of peaches and fruit but is a little too sweet for my palate. I enjoyed the beer I had but having just one was enough for me.
