Thanks for sharing, Richard.

The pour is a quite pale yellow color with a white head. Definitely has some peach aroma to it as well as some other sweet fruit notes. A little bit malty with some sugar and bread notes. Not really all that complex. The flavor is similar, but perhaps more dull. Sugar, bread, and sweet peaches and other fruits are really about it. There’s some mild straw notes, maybe a bit of yeast. The body is medium and so is the carbonation.

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 – initial pour is very clear yellow with orange hues. Second pour is very cloudy and a bit darker… Very little head rises in the form of white bubbles.

S – A bit tart, and lactic. Not as peach as expected. Rather uneventful. Slight peachiness.

T – Dry. Not very peach, more of a Belgian peach wheat. Spicy.

M – Great carbonation. No heat. Slight bitterness.

O – Recommended for a drier, less sweet fruit brew. A bit off the beaten path. This is my first Epic Brewery brew, I’ll try another of their brews and hope its more unique and experimental.

look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Aroma: Weird fruit, obvious guess would be peach, but alas it is not obvious.

Appearance: Clear golden body with a thin white head that fell fast. Super low carbonation.

Flavor: Citrusy, a hint of peach. Subtle spice presence that is probably from the yeast.

Mouthfeel: Medium to heavy body with a short unassuming finish.

Overall: Peach and yeast esters compete rather than complement each other. Drinks relatively easy, but also has a lot of bizarre and hard to quantify flavor notes. The concept was more appealing than the actual brew.

I got this and another. the other blew up on me making a sticky beer mess in my cabinet.

Not big on the world of fruit beer, many of them aren't that good.

I know they have some of the most amazing peaches in the Idaho-Utah area and if seems like the perfect beer ingredient.

Pours average, nice white looking foam head.

Smells pleasant! Nice peach fuzz note, tart and fresh.

Tastes tart, and fuzzy. Fruity grainy stuff. Surprisingly mild and watery. Some musty funk. A wild ride better than most.
