look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Not much to look at... burnt straw gold body with a thin half finger of white fizz that dissipates within seconds. Still a good bit of legs though.

Sweet, syrupy, boozy peach flesh... some ester or clove notes, rather pungent stuff, the booze character isn't exactly "hot" but it's certainly noticeable... or maybe I'm just noticing the massive sweet bread disguising it? Confusing.

Same story here. Massive fruit character that is supported only by a plethora of less-than-hot booze characteristics. Some bugglegum shows itself after a while.

Meh.

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.

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.

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.

Bomber bottle. Decanted into a 0.47l oversized snifter.
Appearance: Murky gold. No lasting head.
Smell: Over-ripe bananas and peaches. Think of a day old fruit salad. But in an ok way.
Taste: Very peachy. That’s pretty much it… peaches. Lightly carbonated, liquefied, peaches. Peach.
Mouthfeel: Pretty good. Correct for the style.
Overall: When a beer touts a fruit, it should predominately feature that fruit without being overwhelmed by it. This beer is right on the border of too much. There’s a ton of peach flavor, and the Belgian spiciness is washed out to some degree, but all-in-all it seems to work pretty well. Good for a hot, summer day. I couldn’t drink more than one, but I’m not sure the brewers intended it to be a session beer.

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.

Holy effervescent head, batman! About 3 and a half fingers high, bone white, sticky lacing, recedes a bit thankfully. Has a straw/golden hue that's a bit cloudy.

Interesting nose. Starts of with dry Belgian yeast, earthiness, and light vinous and tannin notes that give way to peaches, very light tartness , spice, white pepper, slight clove, and oak that comes out a bit more as it warms.

Similar to the aroma, sweetness, Belgian yeast qualities, light oak, white wine qualities, tannins, peach, though less than would be expected from a beer with this name, light tartness, light white pepper, some clove and banana.

Mouthfeel is nice. Medium body and consistency, with a slightly higher than medium carbonation and a dry light finish. Makes the brew pretty drinkable.

Overall a decent brew but one that could have benefited from more peach showing. Sounds like a good idea on papaer (read on their label) but doesn't quite cut it where it counts.

Bottle shared by Steve, release #9 as indicated by the label.

Hazy orange body with a white head. Light retention and lacing. Nose has a perfumey ripe peach scent, some funk, light permanent marker, oak/white wine character and a gentle tartness. Perhaps a bit of acetic. Taste has peach flesh, a bit of oak and a subtle acetic tartness. Sweeter golden ale malting and Belgian yeast qualities. Medium full body, and lightly prickly carbonation. A nice peachy Belgian ale, really opens up nicely with warmth.

#13 out of 1800 bottles. Okay, this is an interesting beer. The appearance is golden with slight haze. There is a thin head, some lace, but it's basically an average Belgian ale appearance. The smell, however, is complex and multi-layered. At once, it smells like a wine (champagne, maybe), a peach lambic, a belgian strong ale, and a euro lager. Vinous, dry-ish, very peachy, and dryer than you might think. The alcohol is very well hidden. Quite bitter finish. I don't know if I really enjoy this beer...it's amazingly interesting, and well made, but I'm not sure it fits my preferences. Disjointed...not sure what it wants to be? Medium to full in body. This is a sipping beer, but isn't cloying, heavy, or overly strong. Interesting and intriguing.

Pours a flat honey golden. Slight white head at most. An aroma of alcoholic peach preserves. Flavor offers a lot of alcohol, some peach, and some malt. A kinda flat, medium bodied. Overall, I was quite excited to try this but was rather disappointed in it.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Peach color with a thin white lace of head. Tart dried sugar covered peaches on the nose with a touch of alcohol and oak.

Medium bodied but feels full in the mouth. Slight effervescence. Sweet dried tropical fruit bowl upfront followed by tart peach sweetness. Finishes with a dry belgian yeast finish. Like mouth watering bone dry. Subtle notes of floral hops here and there with some alcohol detection. Touch of clove. For such a big beer though it's pretty simple. I do enjoy it but I did expect a bit more. Well condensed flavors and dangerously drinkable. Not a bit sweet like I thought it would be but actually quite the opposite. The oak is there just enough to build on the dryness of the beer and add just enough complexity. It actually took me a while to even pick up on the oak but it might be the best use of oak I've ever seen. Overall very good. The only reason it let me down is because it wasn't what I expected.

reminiscent of a peaches and cream with the sweetness of the peaches, the velvet quality of the beer, and the creaminess of the oak.

SIDE NOTE Mix half sour apple saison and half Brainless on peaches and you have a pretty nice dried fruit refreshing beer in your cup!

3.1/5  rDev -12.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Bottle purchased from The Beermongers in Portland, OR.

Coming from Australia, I've seen a lot of New Zealand's Epic Brewery, and I was keen to try some of their American namesake's. Randomly, this is the first one I came across. Pours a very slightly hazed yellow colour, with a filmy ring of white foam forming the head. Plenty of carbonation streaming through a body that is surprisingly light for a super-10% ABV beer. Overall, an inauspicious start for Epic.

Nose is dominated by Belgian yeast, not by oak, not by wine and not by peaches, leaving a rounded, earthy and slightly funky character at its core. There's a peppery twist to it as it warms, and perhaps a hint of vinous tartness, but it's mild at best. Slightly disappointing.

The peach finally makes an appearance on the palate, but subordinate to the big, husky booziness, the peppery, leafy, rank bitterness and more of those phenolic notes from the yeast. In fact, the peach has a medicinal, biting quality to it as it slews in with the booze, making it taste like backyard peach-schnapps. Blech.

I'm sure I'll end up having better experiences with this Epic. I truly believe it. But this feels like an experiment gone wrong. Unfortunately, though, my impression is that the problem is with the base beer, not the post-treatment it has been given; if anything, more peach and more oak would have made this a much superior beer.

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 very hazy golden color with a small-medium white head that disappears quickly. Scent is wow...very peach forward. Lovely peach puree (not fresh peach, but like a peach jam of some sort) aroma with a bit of oak. A little bit of booze as well. Taste is initially a little tart with some whiskey notes and a bit of alcohol warmth. Picking up some peaches and some citrus notes. Quite boozy, with more peach jam flavor. A bit of Belgian yeast flavor and somewhat bitter alcohol finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and tingly. Drinkability is fair. Overall, an interesting beer, but nothing spectacular. Not sure if I would purchase this again. Would have like less booziness and more oak presence.

I bought a whole series of these at Four Firkins when i was in the Twins, so i opened this one tonight alone.

Hazy yellow/orange, straw color. tons of lacing.
Nose is definitely peachy, smells sort of artificial at first.
Flavors are unappealing for the first 6oz of the bottle, fake peach at first and tannic, rough and dry. But as i drink the bottle i really start to like it after about 8oz, the tannins become really enjoyable, the peach become full and pleasant, and the spice to really come out of the wood works and do what the barrels did to it. Odd how i was originally going to give this beer a 2.3 or so, and now i am quite enjoying it. odd.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle into a stein glass.

Look - golden in color, clear, with good carbonation and about two fingers' worth of foam that dissipates quickly.

Smell - interesting smell. I actually don't smell the peaches, but rather a mix of the oak and maybe whisky.

Taste - much like the smell. I don't taste a lot of a peach taste, but more of a whisky-like taste that probably comes from the oak barrels. There's a fruitiness that does finally come toward the finish.

Mouthfeel - pretty well-balanced, but definitely leans more on the watery side.

Overall - very interesting beer, and very decent-tasting too.

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.

22oz bottle (Release #5 - 10.5% alcohol) courtesy of a trade with Mjmoon15. Thanks Mark! Poured into a Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a very hazy and super pale orangish golden color. Two fingers of densely bubbled yet still fizzy head clings to the glass for several minutes and leaves lots of good lacing on the glass.

S - Fruity up front with very noticeable peaches taking the lead. A bit spicy and clovey behind the fruit, touches of nutmeg, apple and cinnamon, somewhat bretty like funk at a lowish level. Noticeable woody oak a bit in the background. Overall effect is somewhere between a Belgian witbier and a fruity white wine...thinking maybe a gewurztraminer. A bit unique.

T - Wow...flavor does not really resemble the aroma at all. The flavor is all strong Belgian golden ale all the way. Belgian yeast heavy flavors, noticeable alcohol - boozy even. A touch tart on finish which seems a bit off in the transition. Lots of malt here...somewhat sweet base, bready. Peaches show up, but are muted against the malt and the Belgian yeast. I think the base beer is a bit too intense for the somewhat delicate peachy touches.

M - Medium/full bodied beer, assertive higher level carbonation, sweet and bready up front and transitioning awkwardly toward a tart and fruitier finish. A bit of alcohol warmth gives this a somewhat boozy feel and makes it a rather slow drinker.

O - Overall this is a bit of a tough one for me. Appearance and aroma are great and led me to believe I was going to be having an easier drinking beer than this. This really has a strong tripel and/or strong golden ale base that overpowers the fruit addition. Think I would have been happier with a bit lighter base beer, but that could just be me. Sadly the strength of the base beer really doesn't let the fruit add much.

Poured from a bomber into a pint glass. Reviewed live.

A- One finger width white head, frothy and fizzy with fairly low retention. Some lacy rings. Orange-gold color with low clarity, probably due to the yeast.

S- Light malts, yeast and bacteria development, peaches, banana, cloves, some booziness but not too much. It hides the ABV quite well in the smell.

T- Over cooked malts, peach schnapps, cloyingly sweet and very astringent and sour. Acidity is high and it makes for a tough drink. Flavor is more on the liquor side. Not a forgiving beer.

M- Lighter bodied and filmy linger.

O- Lost me on the taste. Yeesh.

i wanted this to be so much better than it was. expensive and strong from epic usually means an alltime beer, but not here. pours a very bright golden color with a tint of pale orange and a brassy shine. very smell white bubbly head. smells overly sugary, like ripe peaches. alcoholic like brandy, and a bit woody too. flavor is very sweet, like apple juice or something, boozy, honey essence, and a little yeast at the end. feel is very thick and sticky for a golden ale, kind of bogs this one down for me, and frankly the flavor is just not that good, the best part of the peaches isnt captured here, and the lower carbonation makes it a bit of a task to drink. my least favorite of the epic beers i got to try while in utah.

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.

A: Hazy deep golden color with a great 1 finger white head and some nice heavy lacing down the glass.

S: Peaches and cream upfront. As it warms, I get less of the peaches and more orange cream, vanilla, a touch of booze and sweet yeast smells. A touch of white wine as well.

T: Definitely more of the Belgian Golden Ale than peach here. I really liked the premise, but the golden ale shows up way more than the peach. Lots of heavy and sweet malt flavors with some caramel, maybe a touch of unripe white peach, and a lot of chardonnay. Hides the 10% insanely well, but probably not something I would get again.

Bottle to Pinot Noir glass
22 oz

Batch 8

App-  Very shimmery gold with a good fluffy white head and medium cling. Good bubble activity. Bright.  

Smell- Very belgian strong golden ale. Boozy, oaky, soft peachy with some esters and hefe notes 

Taste-  Reminds me a lot of Mischief from the Bruery. Soft at times. Assertive at other. Very bubbly with a good damp tart note. A bit boozy but what 10% beer isnt. Oak is very subdued with the peaches coming last with a lactic malty taste 

Mouth- A lighter medium almost light bodied. A almost full medium carbonation with a good deal of bubbles. Soft oak and peach remain 

Drink- Overall the peach is better than cherry. This had more depth of flavor, more balance and just tasted more natural vs artificial

Release #8 - 10.5% ABV. 1 pint 6 fl oz brown glass bottle with standard pressure cap served into a 2011 Antwerp Beer Passion Weekend Beer Sommelier stemglass in me gaff in low altitude Los Angeles, California. Acquired at a Whole Foods in Glendale. Reviewed live. Expectations are high as I've heard great things about Epic Brewing; this is my first beer from Epic.

Served refrigerator cold and allowed to warm over the course of consumption. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a two finger head - quite thin, without any real cream, and of great retention for the high ABV. Colour is a hazy nontransparent dirty orange.

Sm: Orange citrus notes, lactic milk notes, wood barrel notes, and white wine. A pretty strong aroma. I don't care for this aroma; it kind of turns me off.

T: White wine alongside orange fruit esters. I get hardly any peaches at all. Hints of wood are largely buried. Lactic notes are present yet restrained. Clean malts form the foundation. Decently balanced but largely empty in terms of flavour. Built in a simple boring fashion. No alcohol or yeast comes through. I don't know how they hid the ABV - it certainly wasn't with flavour. Bland compared to my expectations. The orange fruit is overwhelming and nowhere near fresh.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Nicely light on the palate for the high ABV. Adequately carbonated. It's tingly. Probably the best component of this beer. Better than the flavours.

Dr: Unrefreshing. Drinkable but bland compared to what it could be. I expected so much more based on what I heard about Epic. I wouldn't get this again, but I'm willing to give Epic more chances. Maybe this just wasn't my glass of beer. I should say I'm very impressed by how well it hides its ABV - I've given this category a 4 because it does hide the ABV incredibly well, and my method of reviewing still counts this category as drinkability.

C+
