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.

Picked this up in NJ around Christmas. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into my Lost Abbey stemware.
a - Pours a somewhat transparent bright orange color with one finger of fluffy white head and moderate carbonation evident. Spotty lacing left on the glass and lasts about a minute.
s - Smells of peaches, fruity malts, sweet fruits, sugar, and bready malts. Tons of sweet peaches. The nose reminds me a bit of those sugary, candy peach rings you can buy at the store. I actually like it.
t - Tastes of watered down peaches, sugar, and fruity malts. Also some herbal/tea taste to it. Taste is not bad, but a lot weaker and seems watered down.
m - Thin body and moderate carbonation. Smooth and creamy, but a bit too thin.
o - Overall a decent beer. I actually liked the nose quite a bit, but the taste was a lot weaker, and the mouthfeel wasn't great. Not a bad beer, but probably not really worth seeking out more than once.

Poured from the bottle into a Chimay goblet.
Appearance: Pours a cloudy orangish amber with a small layer of off white head that goes away almost completely.
Smell: The smell of this beer is chalked full of peaches. Rather sweet with a note from the grain and some tartness as well.
Taste: Not nearly as peach filled as the smell. The peaches are tastefully added and the beer isn't overly sweet. I'm not really picking up the tartness from the smell, but I am getting mild malt note. The finish is a bit underwhelming.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with strong, tingly carbonation and a slightly dry finish.
Overall: I enjoyed this beer and found it to be quite refreshing. While it smelled good, I was afraid that the peach would be too sweet and overpowering. I would have liked smoother carbonation and a stronger taste in the finish.

A: Pours a slightly hazy orange with a finger of white head that recedes into a sudsy ring with no lacing.
S: Lots of peach aromas here with some bubblegum and candy sugar aromas as well. There is a nice, sweet, peachy finish with just a touch of tartness.
T: For as strong as the peaches are in the aroma, they are barely present in the flavor. Some crystal malt-like flavors and bitter yeasty flavors dominate. The peaches are more on the aftertaste, providing a light tartness.
M: Medium-light body with medium carbonation, this beer is fairly light, dry, and clean.
O: Not a bad beer, but just too bland on the flavor. The aroma is full of peaches and, while I don't like extremely fruity beers, the peaches are barely there at all.

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.
