3.32/5 rDev -3.5%
Appearance: It has a nice hazy golden/yellow color to it. It has a nice thick off-white head that dies down moderately and leaves very little lacing.
Smell: The aromas give out hints of peaches, apricots, wheat malts, faint pepper and a touch of Saison yeast.
Taste: Like the aromas, it has a some peaches, wheat, some black pepper and faint Saison yeast.
Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a decent overall balance and feel.
Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by passable flavors and aromas. Nothing exciting here.
Serving type: bottle

Straight pour from a pry-off 12oz bottle to a can glass. There’s a freshness date of October 31, 2014 printed in yellow ink on the neck of the bottle (“14134.136 10.31.2014”), which would mean it’s got another two and a half months or so before it “expires” or what have you. Which I think would make this about a month and a half old now.
Appearance (3.0): Two fingers of crackly, just-off-white head comes off of the pour easily, capping a golden body with light orange highlights and just a very light chill haze. Retention is moderately below average, with the head lasting an average period of time but leaving very little behind—no lacing to speak of, and just a thin residue on the surface.
Smell (3.25): Overripe peach juice, peach candy flavor (like a lollipop), a little dusty hay and dried grains. Light, dry common crackers underpin the fruit esters a bit, but it’s very light.
Taste (3.0): Following the nose, the flavor’s dominated right off the bat by peachy fruit esters that, while they may not be, certainly feel artificial. It’s got a light fruit bitterness on the backside, but it’s pretty vague. The malt base is pale, clean, simple, and crackery. An amorphous spice comes through on the back end, bringing a vague pepper/clove character, but it doesn’t hold up particularly well. It’s pleasant enough, though.
Mouthfeel (3.5): Light carbonation that doesn’t quite tingle helps lighten the body, which is a bit on the light side of medium, give or take. The pale body, light spice, and peachy esters help the beer to finish on the dry side.
Overall (3.0): I dunno, I really liked the idea of this beer but it’s just not there. It’s average-ish, because it’s refreshing enough and not inoffensive, but it’s not in any regard a decent representation of the style, nor is it a particularly interesting fruit beer. But, like I said, it’s refreshing enough and in no way does it offend.

This one pours a cloudy peach color with a frothy white rim of foam.
Smells of soapy hops with a dim peach in the background.
The soapiness is there in the flavor and it reminds me of an old dishrag! Too bad. There's a soft wheaty taste behind it along with a thin and easy peach.
Feels a little full for what the flavor delivers.
Not so hot, yet not entirely terrible.
