3.9/5  rDev +21.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Look – amber color with a slight orange hue to it. Clear, with about half a finger’s worth of foam that dissipates quickly.

Smell – mix of musky and orange/orange peel. Interesting aroma.

Taste – musky at first, and then the tinge of the wheat hits with a bite in the middle. This is followed by a sweetness from the peach flavoring. An earthy quality in the finish and aftertaste.

Mouthfeel – pretty well-balanced, leaning more on the watery side though.

Overall – not a bad tasting beer at all, and pretty interesting to think about while tasting.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Cloudy orange with a tall pale tan colored head.

Smell is sweet malt and vanilla with the aroma of ripe peaches. Little bit of cinnamon and sandal wood. Yes it does have requisite peach you would expect.

Starts out semisweet with peach flavor right up front. Little bit of caramel flavor. Mostly this tastes of peaches. Wheat malt and peaches and a faint hop bitterness that is what this tastes like.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Overall it is OK. Tried it once, not interesting enough to try again.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Wonderful orangish hue with a thick creamy head leaves sheets of lacing that disapate quickly. Shockingly this would have gotten a 4.5 or better but upon opening it wanted to gush, scarey stuff expected some sort of infection but taste and smell seemed fine.

Certainly peachy aroma that borders on perfume peach, not at all in a bad way. Some grainy maltiness comes through and almost nothing of a hop presence. No booze or heat.

The perfume peach is much more detectable on the flavor. A hint of tart wheat and some good grainy malt support the peachy concoction. The hops are well hidden and prolly covered by the peach.

Nice thick creamy mouth on this as expected from the wheat.

Interesting good beer, glad I had it.

3.45/5  rDev +7.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Clear amber with a modest and rather coarse head. Spritzy enough in the glass. Medium body. Rather malty and thick on the tongue. Fruit cocktail aroma.

Quite a lot of peach flavor. A little on the cooked side. Tastes more of barley malt than wheat, so it's a lot like a regular malty beer, maybe a bock beer, with fruit added. Hops are restrained, but give a tickle of bitterness at the finish.

At 7%, this is stronger than the usual fruity summer quaff, and so is the flavor. But for sipping it's quite pleasant. A little of the dirty hops at the end, but a mellow sweetness to go with the fruit as you sip. From the 22 oz bottle.

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

Pours a dark amber with a tan head. Retention stinks though.
Smell is strongly peach and sweet, almost sickly sweet and some malt.
Taste is peach, cane sugar, malt. Heavily biased to the peach. Balance ain't so great.
Reasonably full bodied, light effervescence. Candy sweet peach runs all over this beer. Not a bad idea but the execution is off.

Reviewing this one so that it can get reviews sufficient for a score; otherwise I use "Hads."

Warning: I taste at room temperature which in my opinion brings out the true flavors and character of beer. This one gushed - be warned!)

Pours a clear dark orange with a white head that fades very quickly.

Nose is simply light esters but pleasant. Light orange flowers. One might find a hint of peach only because you're looking for it and want to; truth be known - I didn't smell any peaches.

Mouthfeel is light, thin and watery with no balance whatsoever. Very light carbonation and very watery all around.

Flavors are just a huge disappointment. Well, truthfully, I'm not sure that there are any flavors. Tastes like a light beer diluted with a light "orange or flower water." Basically, tastes like a flavored water without character. I could not even identify a flavor profile on this one. It doesn't taste like beer is the primary problem. Nice if you need hydration and no water is around.

Finish is a light watery stale orange peel.

I did like the dog on the label and the dog print bottle cap so there was something nice to be said.

I poured this bomber into a weizen glass picturing a handsome fluffy head atop a nice hazy body. Got the (somewhat) hazy golden amber body, but what little head there was disappeared in short order. No lacing.

Smells kinda peachy I guess, more sugary sweet than fresh. More marmalade than sliced fruit. Boozy and sweet with a rather artificial peach flavor. Thankfully, the wheat does cut into the sweetness a bit but the thickish smooth body isn't doing this brew any favors. Ol' Chug may want to go back to the drawing board on this one.

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

Pours a mix of blonde/amber with a one-finger head into my glass.

Strong dose of peach extract with wheat upfront. Wonder if this is the "apricot" in No.9 as well?

Taste isn't too bad at first but the back of the throat is just nasty. Strong, overpowering nastiness.

The extract ends badly, leaving the worst taste possible in the mouth. Damn.

I can't imagine that Chug would chug this crap.

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a copper color with a small white head that dissipates quickly. They were not lying when they said it was a peach wheat, because the peach definitely dominates, but kinda smells like artificial flavoring. Tastes like a wheat beer with a nice wheat body with a slight peach taste, quite surprising for the smell. Carbonation seems correct for a wheat beer and it goes down really smooth. Definately a session bill. Overall, a good peach wheat beer.

22 ounce bottle - $3.99 at Olde Crabapple Bottle Shoppe in Alpharetta, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours out a lightly hazed, medium copper body with a largish, near white head.

Smell: More than the mere "hint" the bottle helpfully mentions, the sweetish peach scent is actually quite strong here, with only a little toasted wheat coming out from behind it.

Taste: Sweetish and, as with the beer's nose, it's fairly peach-forward, but, hell, if you're also going to put "Big Bite Peach" on the label, then I say go ahead and deliver some damn peach. Tangy, tart malted wheat, lightly toasted. Peach, peach, peach.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. The mouthfeel is in the vicinity of smoothness.

Overall: Comes across like an odd Bellini. Maybe a Beerllini!

Wheaty aroma has a strong overtone of sweet peach. What can I say - I love peaches! It pours a clear coppery amber with a fairly thick pale tan head. Wheaty, subtly hoppy flavor has a strong note of peach which, happily, does not dominate the taste the way it dominates the aroma. There is a malty note and just a hint of caramel as well. Texture is firm-bodied and smooth with a strong fizz, leaving a peachy, wheaty and tingly finish.
