look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Poured from 750ml Bottle @ bottle share.

A-Darker Golden hue

S- Subtle Peach notes but the cinnamon is front and center. Smells like a Peach Cobbler with Cinnamon baked in, mmm.

T- Follows the nose. Cinnamon up front with the peach in the finish, lingering until the cinnamon catches back up and slowly fade together. Fantastic.

M- Effervescent. Good Carbination.

O- I wish I had more of this to drink and I would/will actively seek this beer out. It's DELICIOUS!

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Slightly hazy yellow body. Small white head.

Smell - Lots of cinnamon. A little bit of peach, but not much. Faint acidity.

Taste - Much stronger stone fruit. Still not specifically peach, but stone fruit. Cinnamon comes through. Sharp sourness in the back.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Medium low carbonation.

Overall - Fascinating smell, but not all that fascinating overall.
