look: 4.25 | smell: 5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Glass: Shaker Pint.

Appearance: Apricot, caramel, orange color. Hazy.

Smell: Like a can of peaches or peache gummies. Sweet and delicious.

Taste: Overly sweet peaches, slightly artificial in taste. Wheat aftertaste comes through mid sip.

Mouthfeel: Oily dry finish. Medium body with light carbonation.

Overall: An easy drinking beer, great with food or on a hot day. Wish the peaches came rhrough a little more tart instead of sweet.

Fresh peaches are up and in your face with an excellent aroma. After you get a whiff of this peach festival the rest is down hill...a slow decline but downhill non the less. The taste was good but the peaches were not as pronounced as the aroma would have you believe. The base beer is decent but a lingering aftertaste knocks it down a few steps. Overall it's a fair priced peach beer worth drinking on a hot day.

Bottom Line: Peaches!

It's like a Creamsickle but with peach instead of orange! Where were these when I was a kid!

Opening with a pour that's creamy, fluffy, and full of lightness, the ale breams with a straw-colored body and near-bright clarity. Only the pectin haze prevents brilliant shine. The cotton-white cap is firm, withstanding and simply exudes the sense of what's creamy. Light on lace, the beer doesn't need it as it has already lured me in.

Candied aromas remind me of sherbert with that bright punch of peach. Rich tropical and orchard fruit aromas are ripe and seem nearly of tangerine, blood orange and apricot- yet it is peach at its roots. The strong presence of vanilla almost evokes aromas of nutmeg and almond.

Where the nose promises sweetness, the taste offers more bitterness, as if of the pit and skins of peaches while the body is grainy-sweet from malts. Herbal in its hop balance, the beer races toward zesty acidity for refreshment and drinkability. Finishing grainy-dry, the taste never really delivers on those aromatic promises.

Medium-light in body, the full creaminess of carbonation gives full impressions on the mouth early. But the creamy textures are fast fleeting and the middle palate is left with a dry and lightly puckering sensation- as if biting into grape seeds. This astringency grows in finish but is masked by the stemmy nature of hop bitterness. Its overall lightness late leaves me wanting more.

If only the ale could have carried those tantilizing aromas through to taste and texture as well and we could have something special. But the beer is worth the purchase based on aromas alone!
