Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a shaker pint.
A--Bright, bright apricot orange, with all sorts of sediment floating around in it. I mean, it seriously looks smoothie-like in there. Seeds, yeast--is that pulp? I'm kidding, but this is cloudy and there's definitely crap floating around. Not bad, just...different. Head is a generous two fingers of creme colored dense foam. Good retention and lacing.
S--Smells like peaches. Bright, fresh, juicy peaches. Incredible donkey punch of fruit here. Gawd almighty do I hope this doesn't taste as sweet as it smells.
T--And we're safe. Phew. This actually tastes quite good. Flavor profile is more bright peach, but much mellower, with the essence of the flavor rather than any residual sweetness taking over. Thank the sting of the wheat for that. Great interplay between the fruit and tangy wheat going on here. It's a fairly straightforward profile, but that's true to the style, and the season for which it's brewed. The ingenuity comes in with the fruit used.
M&D--Typical hefe or wit mouthfeel--thin and spritzy. Easy going. Insanely drinkable. And this is coming from a guy whose closest tolerance for fruit beers was pumpkin ale. Fruit beers generally piss me off. This one is tasty. Strong summer refresher in the wheat beer category. Kind of like an American Wit.

Picked up a six-pack of this while on vacation due to a friend telling me this is a must. 12oz bottle poured into a standard pint, the brew appears a hazy golden color with a white cap. Some stringy patches of lace retains well on the glass.
The aroma includes earthy peach with a juicy sweetness and a touch of straw grain. Some sulfuric notes fill out the rest of the nose profile.
The taste is straw-like grain before a bit of perfume-like peach fruited quality. A little grassy with earth and sulfur notes towards the finish. A slight bitterness is present rounding out the brew reminding you this is still beer.
This is medium to lighter bodied with a modest amount of carbonation. This is a pretty decent fruited wheat - nothing more or less. I suppose it should be noted that this packs about as much peach character as you can 'naturally' get in a brew with only a slight perfume-like ester going on in it.
