We took our double gold medal winning Brainless Belgian, added organic peach puree and aged it in French Chardonnay casks from Sawtooth Winery. Drink from a Pinot glass, serve on the warm side of cold, it develops nicely as it warms displaying more fruit and wine.

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.

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.

Pours a clear golden yellow, tons of thin white head with small bubbles. Lots of grain in the nose, sugary and sweet, some golden fruits randomly come about. The taste has the sweet golden fruit up front, tons of sugar, lager type yeast flavors, hints of spice. There is a strong metallic note in the back and a peppery spice lingering in contrast with the huge sugary sweetness. Full bodied and syrupy feel also detract from this beer, high carbonation and rough to swallow. Flabby, metallic, sugary mess.

Epic Brainless on Peaches has a hazy, orange colored body that has a slightly rosy or pink tint to it. The head is a light, off-white color and about three fingers tall. The head doesn't last too long, but there is lacing left behind from the thin collar that sticks around on top of the body.

Lots of sweet malt and some candied sugar in the nose with just a hint of pepper. The peach really lingers in the background.

This one is pretty damn sweet. Lots of sweet malt with light bread flavors come with a huge punch of what tastes like candied sugar. Generic fruit and a few bits of pehnol comes through next. The peach first tastes like a sweet syrup without much flavor. I don't taste any peach until the finish and the aftertaste. There is a touch of alcohol flavor in the finish also.

Fairly high carbonation, adequate body.

Brainless on Peach is a little too cloying. Although the peach flavor in the finish is nice, the rest of the beer is hard to take. A little bit of alcohol comes through also, but it isn't too unpleasant.

Poured into a glass it produced a 3 finger white head. The beer color is like honey.
The smell is of a earthy, and citrus Belgian style. It's nice, but the peach is barely noticeable.
The taste is good. High carbonation, light mouth-feel. minimal malt, and just a slight bitter finish, mask it's high abv well. Once again, where is the peach?
Good beer, but very lacking in peachiness.

Shared with aasher. Poured into new belgium snifter with a massive 1.5 inches of white foam head to go with a typical apricot color for this belgian pale.

The smell gives you very little on this beer. I of course want to smell peach but can barely get a hint of it. Hops are not overwhelming.

Lots of citrus, lemon mostly on the nose which follows into a slighty sweet, but bitter malt that gives you a little bit of peach

I like the mouthfeel of this beer because it's unpredictable. After the citrus you don't know what to expect.

This is a beer i would session, just now forgot it's 10.5 percent.

I picked up this bottle in Minneapolis a couple weeks ago. It pours a very cloudy dingy gold in color and medium bodied in color, overly carbonated, with a one finger self destructive head. It smells of yeast, spice, and peach concentrate, almost like an Ocean Spray juice. It tastes the same, straight Belgian yeasts and spices with peach juice. It tastes good but not in a way that is classify it as being a quality beer, if you feel my drift. The flavor is there but I don't perceive it to be authentic. It also doesn't help that the 10.5% is pretty prevalent. It drinks lighter than its body because of the over carbonation. Overall its a decent beer but nothing too crazy.
