This is the Brainless on Peaches Belgian Style Ale - Malt Beverage Brewed with Peach and Aged in French Oak Barrels; part of the Exponential Series from Epic Brewing out of Salt Lake City Utah.

This beer pours amber-orange in color with light head that dissipates quickly. The aroma of great Belgian ale and oak wafts the nostrils gently with a light flowering note that teases of citrus in bloom.

The up front taste is that of an oaked Belgian, very little difference between it and many other Belgians. Quickly the citrus taste complements the oak taste and the taste of peaches lingers in the mouth with a salty background that anticipates the next sip.

I have never had an Epic Brewing beer before; they are new to the state of Arizona. This example proves the co-founder's statement that they are a boutique brewery. This is a beer that speaks well of the people doing the brewing. It is difficult to get a peach beer to not be overpowered by the fruit flavor, or just be tasteless and boring, we've all seen examples of that!

If you hate fruit beers, this is a beer to taste. You won't hate it. If you enjoy fruit beers, this might surprise you with how beery it is. At 10.5% ABV it is surprisingly drinkable, like a Belgian should be. This is an excellent example of what a brewer can do to open a style that some consider not worth tasting. Can't wait until we get more Epic beers here in AZ!

look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

22 oz. bomber, Release No. 11,

A: Pours a brilliant full orange with a medium white head, good lace and retention.

S: Lovely peaches and cream with a distinct Belgian tilt. Yeast, pepper, along with the fruitiness, quite lovely. As the beer warms the peaches come much more to the forefront, if you enjoy this smell like I do, dont serve this under 55F.

T: Peach attacks right away, but then goes into something distinctly more Belgian. Grassy hops, yeast and white pepper, spicy for sure. Gets this interesting dessert peach puree flavour there at the end, but just as soon as I found it, it goes back to Belgium and dries out heavily for the denouement.

M: Full-bodied, frothy but does have some crisp carbonation character. Off-dry overall with a very mild acidity. Complex.

O: This is a fun beer to delve into. Everything is in balance and the peach flavour is true and delicious. Certainly not an over the top fruit beer. Can't wait to try the Cherry version.

First had: on tap at Oskar Blues Homemade Liquids & Solids, Longmont, CO

Wow...so good. I totally fell in love with this one on the first sip, and it's a shame I'll probably never have it again. Poured a clear, thin, peach-orange color with just a tiny layer of delicate bubbles for a head. Didn't look like much from the get go, but I gave it a chance. Aroma of pale malts, reminiscent of a golden or blonde ale, light with peaches and apricots, with some herbal notes and a touch of funk. Taste: a pale malt base overlaid with peach, apricot, oaked white wine. Sweet, but done just right. Not at all syrupy...just right. Light herbal and floral hops for a great balance of flavors. Light-medium body, slight alcohol burn that doesn't affect the taste, and very drinkable all over.

This may be the best "fruit beer" there is. That's because it really is a belgian (pale?) with fruit, and a lot of "fruit beers" are just wierd.

I am judging it as it is categorized, and it rises higher than it would as a belgian. It sort of tastes like a softer, darker Duuvel with peaches. It's light and amaingly covers a lot of alcohol.

This is an interesting, complex, yet easy to drink brew. If it weren't for the price, I would drink it a lot.

Pours a hazy yellow to orange-ish color with a white head. In the aroma, a small tartness and dry peach skin. In the taste, tart dry peaches and ends a bit boozy and oaky. A nice tart bite and medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dry oak, almost bourbon like in the aftertaste. Big alcohol presence, nice tart peach flavor, interesting of how close to bourbon like it was.

A - Pours a cloudy golden-orange color with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down fairly slowly leaving behind some nice lacing.

S - Aroma is full of peaches with Belgian yeast and coriander, and some oak, grape, vanilla, and a touch of booze.

T - Starts off with tart peach with some Belgian yeast flavors including coriander and some vanilla. Through the middle, the oak comes through with some Chardonnay grape and green apple. The finish is a mix of tart peach with Belgian yeast flavors, some farmhouse flavors, oak, vanilla, and a bit of booze.

M - Medium-plus bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a tart and warming finish.

D - Very drinkable. Really nice peach flavor coming through with the BSGA base. Really nicely balanced with the barrel flavors.

I had this at an Epic tasting about a week ago. From my notes:

APPEARANCE: Light gold, minimal head.

AROMA: Definite wine/champagne character going on. The peach shines nicely. Floral, fruity, with minimal amounts of yeasty funkiness.

TASTE: Just as expected from the nose. Sweet and tart, with peach and other fruits. Very slight maltiness. Very reminiscent of champagne.

MOUTHFEEL: Like a dry white wine. Lingering bitterness.

OVERALL: A lovely, refreshing beer that I might have to buy a full bottle (or get a full glass) of. Definitely one of the highlights of the tasting.

90/100

4.18/5  rDev +17.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Semi clouded lemony gold color with a tall lathery topping of soft yet firmly set white foam. Tons of lacing coats the goblet with heavy set, thick sheeting.

Aroma is soft and mildly toned with an alluring Belgian candied sweetness of soggy fruit bread, the obvious peachyness, but it also pulls in some dull mango and pineapple tones too. There's a slight dry fruit skin and yeastyness peeping into the nose as well. It's quite nice just not not on the booming huge, explode out of the glass noce I was hoping for.

Alas, the taste is just as good as the aroma with soggy sweet, fruit cake breadyness smeared with peach jam and lightly glazed with caramel. I really dig its overall blend of candied tangy sweetness and bready doughyness along with its minimal dryness of yeast and fruit skin liquesent hoppyness that skirts along the finish.

Feel is firm, smooth, fruity(peach rendered)tanged and sweetened bolder medium bodied with a nice lasting tone that sinks into the palate with a doughy, fruity gooeyness puffed lightly with a well placed dryness of yeasty fruit skin dryness.

I quite liked this "Brainless on Peaches"! It has the doughy, bready maltyness dulled with the peaches that's appetizing. Plus the touch of feathery dryness of yeasty fruit skins really makes for a solid session and the 10.5% is not found anywhere until the bottom of the bomber.
Very solid stuff!

First abd foremost, this is a Belgian style beer that flirts with Delerium. Therefore, those that knock this beer for being chocked full of "chemicals" that is just natural bite of a potent Belgian and an irritional reason to hate the brew. The lack of twist that some hints of peach fail to provide hurts it some, but all in all a just barely outstanding beer.

Apperance- Light mellow orange yellowish light head akin to most similar Belgians
Taste- Powerful punch of 10% alcohol that ends up oddly smooth and has nice Belgian hoppy bite on the backend, with slight touch of peach
Smell- Delicious, has the banana aroma of Belgian with the peach fighting through and crisp yet potent makeup
Mouth- Smooth, strong then gentle

This one surprised me. I was hoping for a true sour, and while this is not that, it does have a mild tartness with a slight barnyard funk/horseblanket edge. There’s a decent amount of complexity, (besides the subtle peach) with graham cracker, vanilla, white grape and clove mingling nicely. Some have complain about its heat, but I find it to be very muted, especially for its strength. The finish is rather mild, but lengthy enough, and pleasantly dry. Although this isn’t a brew I’d choose on a blustery winter’s day, I find it to be the perfect accompaniment for the onset of fall.

Bottle poured into pint glass

A - Mostly clear with a tiny bit of haze. Head receded rather quick, but nice lacing left behind.

S - Not overpowering with peach, almost have to strain to smell it. Sweet smelling beer.

T - A great traditional belgian taste up front followed by a subtle peach taste that's isn't too much. Slightly spicy notes as well.

M - Heavy feel to begin with, and a feeling/taste that lingers on the tongue after drinking.

O - Good peach beer, but I'd say it remains more in the belgian style rather than peach.

Batch 10

Pours a hazy bright yellow egg-yolk color with a frothy white head that has amazing retention and lacing. Lot's of carbonation coming up. Nice looking beer.

Aroma is powerful and dominated by fruits, mainly peaches, mangos, apricots and red grapes. Bready malts in the background. No hops to speak of.

Taste starts out with sweet malts that then transition to fruity fermentation esters like lemon and red fruits. The peach note is there dominating the yeast that also contributes with a sort of a funk to the the beer. Finish is spicy and mildly bitter. Despite being fairly dry there still is some residual sweetness to this beer in the aftertaste.

Body is medium to heavy. The high carbonation together with the sweet notes kind of hide the abv and make it pretty drinkable.

A great beer from Epic.

M: rather effervescent. medium body.

D: my only real complaint is that it is a little hot. kinda wish i bought another so i could have put one a away for a couple years. otherwise, im really enjoying this bottle. didnt really know what to expect but i will keep my eyes peeled for epic brews now.

Big thanks goes out to beeruser for sharing this one at a recent tasting! Served from bottle into a Sweetwater 15th Anniversary snifter. Poured golden yellow with a half finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, peaches, funk, fruit, and earth. The flavor was of sweet malt, peaches, fruit, and funk. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. The peach aspect that one would expect on this one was definitely there and quite pronounced. I was kind of delighted to find that this one wasn’t really sour or tart as I would have thought it would have been. However, this was a pretty good brew in just about all aspects. The aroma going on was quite inviting and very well balanced. Really glad I got the chance to try this one as it was quite enjoyable and definitely wouldn’t argue with having it again in the future.

Light head, clear rellow light body. Firm furry start. Gentle underneath smells like a dessert wine. Soft. Peaches on the appetite obviously but also some more obvious apricot. Unbelievable gentle and civilized for such ABV content. Not something I'd seek out again but no regrets about trying it whatsoever.

Inflatablechair hooked this one up... Buckeyeboy and I shared the 22 and had pretty differing opinions.

Poured into my Old Guardian goblet.. short lasting white head... hazy lite orange brew.. little lacing despite a pretty righteous body.

Pretty descent BSPA qualities, but I am gonna try and focus on the fruit for this review.

We're serving this one a tad cold.. but there is still a pretty substantial vinous quality.. lite oak.... really everything is lighter than I was expecting.. The fruitiness is there, but could easily be masked by yeasty esters. Nice yet minor bits and pieces of peach, pear, and tiny parts of apricot.

For a 10% Belgian , with WHITE PEACHES (I love white peaches), I was hoping for a bit more.. delicate fruits and some minor clove phenols.... I can pick out hints of green apple and pear that actually pushes the peach up to the front.

This is apparently aged in Chardonnay barrels.. Again, I can see vinous parts... but the oak is something that may be in my imagination.. but it is a tasty part of the imagination.

The body is on the heavier side of medium.. carbonation is about right, but seriously, given the ABV and the Belgian moniker, I personally think it is a touch too thick.

3.5/4/4/4/4.5

Despite my lack luster review.... I am really digging this one.. I just want to see it dialed in a notch or two. I plan on getting some to cellar and see how future batches pare against the first. Thanks Sammy... Fun for a Friday!!!

I would love to have anything by Epic on tap, but that is for another posting; this beer was served from a bomber direct from the brewery on release day. This is from batch one with 10.5% ABV and served into a goblet.

Appearance: Pours with a quickly settling head that leaves a little lacing. This beer is a pretty dark straw/ light golden color that is crystal clear. Effervescent bubbles rise from the center of the goblet to replenish the low cap of a head.

Smell: Yeasty with a Belgian phenolic character. I also get some fruitiness from the peaches.

Taste: Being barrel aged, this one has some definite vinous character. The peaches are not as potent as I would have hoped. I hope that they addressed this is release #2. This a delicious Belgian beer with a hint of peach added, not a peach beer, if you understand the distinction.

Mouthfeel: There is some residual sweetness up front, but this beer finishes fairly dry. The carbonation is almost champagne like. Great medium body that coats the mouth well.

Drinkability: I could drink as many of these as my stomach would allow, but because of the 10.5 ABV and the bomber size, that might be two. This is a pricey but delicious beer.

22oz. bottle poured into a tulip. Thanks for sharing Matt!

(A)- Pours a hazy pale goldenrod color. Some white froth and lace formed.

(S)- A very floral band-aid-like Brett. Very juicy orange and peach. Combined it is quite a nice smell actually.

(T)- Lots of lots of dry, funky Brett. Floral too, but some good oaky fruits too that line up nicely with what was in the aroma.

(M)- A bit higher carbonation level than expected, but it actually helps this beer because of the massively dry funky Brett; it somehow balances this out.

(O)- Overall, a fun and different beer for the style. I am always a Brett fan, but this almost took it to another level.

Brought back from VA by my lovely lady for our grand enjoyment party of Wednesday Night.
Golden, almost watery looking, very little head that dissipates into near nothingness. A void.
Cold, I smell some phenolic byproducts of whatever death-defying yeast made it through up to 10.5%. As it warms, the peaches really come out. Not really getting any of the supposed wood. But that's okay. Candi sugar for sure..how else to get the alcohol up there?
Peaches, wood, booze, vanilla. A little bit tannic and a little bit of an alcohol burn. Surprising that the alcohol and wood don't really show up on the nose anywhere near what they do to my mouth. Really fantastic flavors that I feel work very well together.
Despite the alcohol burn, it's very easy to sip on and enjoy. A wonderful treat. Finally, Utah has given us something to be merry about that it can export. Besides Mormons. Those Merry Mormons.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a New Belgium Globe glass. Release #21.

Appearance: Pours a bright and fairly clear golden orange with a moderate amount of rising bubbles. About one finger of white head that recedes into a thin patchy layer. Leaves a decent amount of lacing on the glass.

Smell: A very yeasty and sweet aroma with a big peach presence along with other fruit esters. Yeast and funk upfront with some pepper and clove spicing. Big scent of peach fruit throughout. Also fruit hints of apple, pear, pineapple, apricot, banana, and white wine like hints of white grapes. Candied sugar scent and some oak. Subtle malt presence with hints of grain and biscuit. Light hints of grassy hops. Big scent of the booze. A pretty interesting and decent smell.

Taste: Like it smells, an odd mix of yeast, fruits, and spices with a Belgian style. Belgian like yeast upfront with notes of funk and clove and pepper spicing. Big taste of the peach fruit. Also fruit notes of apple, pear, apricot, orange, banana, pineapple, and white grapes. Fairly wine like taste with a touch of oak and wood. Sweet and somewhat sour. Candied sugar notes. Bready malt background with notes of grain, cracker, and biscuit. Subtle grassy hops in the background. Odd taste but it works fairly well for me. Not cloying or overly syrupy.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a medium to high level of carbonation. Very juicy and somewhat chewy. Booze is felt quite a bit.

Overall: An interesting and decent Belgian style ale. Fruit and yeast mix is good. Could of hid the booze heat better.

Thanks to thirdeye11 for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is caramel malt, oranges, alcohol and some peaches. The flavor is peaches, bready malt, low bitterness and some lightly tart notes from the fruit. Fairly dry and you can definitely tell the base beer is Belgian in origin. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bomber direct from Epic, Release #2 10.8% ABV. Into a New Belgium globe.

A: Pours a crystal clear gold in color with a stark white head about a finger thick or so. Very impressed with the clarity on this beer. Lively carbonation keeps a decent cap of bubbles on top of this beer. Nice gobs of lacing cling to the side of the glass as it recedes. Surprising amount of activity in the "head". Nice looking beer.

S: Raw peaches, really more of the peach skin in the nose, some notes of a Belgian yeast, lots of esters. Some notes of oak and vanilla linger in with a strong peach note. Definitely reminds me of peach cobbler. Also some notes of canned peaches in syrup. No notes of booze for the 10.8% abv as noted on the label.

T: Strong flavor of canned peaches, and a trippel really stand out. Smells a lot like a trippel aged on peaches. Some notes of raw oak as well, but the peach flavor overwhelms the vanilla notes that were in the nose. Surprisingly no booze in the mouth at all. The peaches contribute a bit of tartness to help with the beer. One detraction is that the peach note is slightly syrupy, more like canned peaches than fresh peaches. Overall pretty nice, one of the better Epic brews I've had.

M: Excellent here, right amount of body, and the carbonation is present but toned down a touch from most Belgian influenced beers. Fairly dry, and not a lot of stickiness that I had expected from the canned peach profile. Really pretty light and crisp. Refreshing.

D: Fairly easy to drink, this beer is very light and crisp and the relatively high ABV is hidden fairly well. Pretty enjoyable fruit beer for what it is. The things that hold this back is the slightly canned, corn syrup influenced peach flavor here. It doesnt' taste artificial, but it doesnt taste 100% authentic either. Decent beer from Epic, but I think that if you threw some "bugs" in this, it would be an awesome beer.
