Terrapin/Left Hand collab. This was the first beer I ordered at the Left Hand Brewery during GABF week. Review from 9/25/11.
A - Served in a tulip. Excellent clarity to this bright and shiny glittering brass colored beer. Has a nice white head; tall with good retention properties.
S - Wow, the peaches are really ripe, fresh, and sweet. Lots of juicy aromas wafting around here. This fruit was wet, ripe, and delicious on its own, and these breweries added it at the peak of flavor to the beer. Easily the best aroma I have ever come across on a Fruit Beer.
T - Again, the peaches are wonderfully fresh and juicy. There's some crackery malt flavor in the background with a faint Belgian bent.
M/O - Creamy feel despite crisp carbonation. Excellent beer... I am so sad this was sent through the terrapin distribution network - I'd have loved a bottle or two to take home!

a: bright copper color, half inch of bright white head settled to a ring with a little lacing.
s: real peaches, not medicine!
t: more peaches, they're dominating the flavor, cant pick up on anything else.
m: full bodied, slight oily feel and a little over carbonated makes it lively on the tongue.
o: i think this is the first peach beer i had that didnt taste like medicine. very well done.

Poured into a snifter. No readable freshness date.
A- Pours a dark amber with a one finger head that retains a bit before settling into an 1/8 inch ring around the edge of the glass and splotchy surface bubbles grouped into completely still mold patterns indicating healthy yeast. Substantial lacing.
S- Sweet, fresh peach aroma that actually smells natural and is very delightful.
T- The peaches come through in the taste quite well, too. Not as pronounced as in the aroma, but I've seen other peach beers fall short of that taste/smell ratio. Also, it's not overly tart like some other brews that have peach flavor *cough* Festina Peche *cough*. A good amount of malts detected, but not so much with the hops. The alcohol is well-hidden but can finally be perceived after multiple sips in a row.
M- Medium-high carbonation that's balanced nicely with a medium body and a relatively dry finish.
O- I like it a lot. One of my new favorite peach beers.

Really? What's up with the reviews here?! Are people familiar with peaches? Peaches are a sweet fruit. This is a peach beer. It's going to be a sweet, peach beer. If you're complaining about it being too sweet and too fruity, why did you buy it?! It's an nice golden color with a tiny head that quickly drops to wisps. Aroma is super-peachy. Tons of peaches. The taste follows, there's a very strong peach taste with a weak wheat aftertaste. It's a fruit beer. It's going to taste like fruit. The mouthfeel is brisk and strongly carbonated, and the drinkability is very good, especially for the elevated ABV.
Honestly, what's with the poor reviews here? This is a very good FRUIT BEER. It's a beer with the primary flavor being fruit. It is excellent at tasting like fruit.

Poured from a bomber into a Duvel tulip
A- pours a crystal clear shade of orange with a two finger offwhite head that fades quickly. Looks real nice
S- peaches! The smell doesn't hide what this beer's calling card is...the peach scent is very strong and appealing
T- peachy. Getting some wheat flavors out of this as well. Not bad
M- pretty malty. The wheat really accentuates the malt
O- solid beer. You don't see a ton of peach beers that aren't lambics, so this was a nice change of pace

Yeah, this thing is exactly what I expected...a balanced beer with lots of peach aroma and flavor.
Pours a nice orange hue with a thin white head.
Aroma, straight peaches...fresh, slightly tart a bit musky, pretty spot on.
Aside from the peach flavor there is a bit of honey and an overall fruitiness with a touch of bitterness in the finish. It's pretty rad that this thing is full of actual peach flavors and not a sweet, unbalanced fruit beer.
Definitely one dimensional but it is what it is and that is a dank little peach beer with good balance.

single finger head on a golden with orange/crimson hues and clear. Little lacing.
S: They certainly got it to smell like peach, which is good. Other citrus comes through as well.
T: Lots of peach here too. Also malts and grain with a mild musty hop flavor.
M: medium body, moderate carbonation and moist finish
Overall I liked the amount of peach in this one and was surprised they made it this strong. I like these limited release brews from Terrapin and their collaborators.

A - Poured in a pint glass with a 2" orange/caramel colored froth. Thick ring sticks around afterwards and the head stays thin. Beer has a slight foggy light orange tint to it with a straw like color.
S - Apricots and peach galore with some orange zest coming in like a light breeze. Its like a dead ripe peach in your glass with no scents of alcohol.
T - Like peach nectar with a slight fuzzy alcohol taste. A creamy finish reminding me of those creamsicles I use to get.
M - Very smooth and light carbonation.
O - I enjoyed this one very much. I'm thinking this one is going to be one of those love/hate types.

A 22oz bomber paired with shrimp tacos and corn.
A - A fairly pale golden ale. Slight head retention, and not much lace left behind after the pore.
S - Peaches^2! Wow. Apricots, peaches, and a little sugar on top. Smells very fresh.
T - Peaches and apricot up front, but balanced and mild at the end. Very smooth. It goes great with my dinner.
M - Light bodied with low carbonation.
O - A very good light ale. Hidden alcohol flavor, and very fresh.
