look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 1.5

Pours out crystal clear pale straw and sits a sickly, light golden-straw color in the glass with a decent white head, fading to glassy surface, holding to the edges and leaving some small lacings.

Smells intensely of raw peaches and a mix of dried apricots. Chalky yeast background and a faint touch of grassy hops.

Tastes lightly sweet up front and produces a cloying blanket of boiled fruit flavors that form a haze over the entier beer. Peachiness is questionable, as are most other flavors produced. Along the lines of apricot skins and melon rinds. Fainly yeasty, and finishes fairly dry, a bit of alcoholic warmth.

Crisp in the mouth, but fairly chalky. Medium-light in body. Just stop for a minute and wonder why you picked one up. If I could just smell this beer, it would be okay, but the flavor is not even close. Fruit-wheat blends: 0. Scorched taste buds: 1.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance
Foamy white head forms agressively up to 4 fingers but doesn't stick around. Hazy lemon body.

Aroma
Peaches and white grape. Smells like the sparkling peach fizz drink my younger brother is still fond of. Not objectionable (I like peaches!) but nothing really to it otherwise.

Taste
Peach is there but not very citrusy (I'm chalking the bite completely up to carbonation on this one). Imagine is you bit into a peach without that sharp acidic bite and were just left with a really dull flavor. Bananas in the aftertaste. Hops? Nope. No real balance here.

Mouthfeel
Carbonation shows up in the beginning, apparently doesn't like what it sees and leaves with little fanfare. Medium body. Viscosity lingers around with a sort of muted clovey taste that isn't quite appreciated.

Drinkability/Overall Impression
Goes down smooth but I'm drinking to finish the glass, not out of enjoyment. There's not much I like with this brew. I'll stick with Festina Peche as my go to peach beer. I advise others pass on this one, you're not missing anything.

12 oz bottle.

Pours golden, slight haze with a half inch head and minimal lacing.

It smells like canned peaches.

The taste is fairly mild, canned peaches, water, and typical light beer.

The body is a little foamy, forms suds in my mouth. Its hard to find the grain base. Reminds me of dish soap.

The finish is slightly sour, again canned peaches.

The peach flavor is interesting but doesn't make it a good beer in my opinion. Its a novelty one time try.

now this is.... not bad. but certainly not good. It does have a true peach flavor. Which is its only saving grace. Absolutely no head or lace. Hazy straw color. just peach nose. not much depth. long peach finish. just peach peach peach. plenty of body - almost like cling peaches to beer. Guess they sell a lot of it at the Bodega. Whatever.

Thanks (I think) Drizzam...
Poured into a pint glass this brew has a hazy wheat color with a finger head that dissipated quickly, but has strong carbonation rising from the bottom. The aroma is overwhelmingly peach. A slight wheat and floral hop smell is present as well. This brew has a harsh bite of a taste. A little peach, a little heffeweizen and a lot of carbonation. The taste is actually quite light, a little astringent, and not all that tasty. I appreciate a new brew, but I am not a peach fan to begin with and this just wasn't my brew.
