2.6/5 rDev -26.6%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5
On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.
Poured a hazy light brassy hue with a two finger foamy white head.
The smell featured full blown sweat peach nectar, and that's it.
The taste consisted of a cloyingly sweet peach nectar with a slight as semblance of wheat malt in tow. A real mess.
The mouthfeel was strangely thin and astringent.
Not a very pleasant experience. This beer should be dialed down to about 4% and feature a stronger wheat profile.
Serving type: on-tap

3.43/5 rDev -3.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 3.25
A: Golden-amber, cloudy. Head is off-white, fairly thin, and quickly fades, although lacing is decent.
S: No doubt about the peach! It's not quite peach cobbler, but it's sweet with a mild maltiness. Perhaps some banana and pepper in the far background.
T: No sweetness to speak of, and even the peach flavor is subdued compared to the aroma. It reminds me of an under-ripe peach (not tart, just not full-flavored yet). There's enough hops bitterness to confirm that this is a beer.
M: Thin (not quite watery, but headed that way), decently carbonated, and dry.
O: A drinkable if mundane fruited American wheat beer. It has neither the fruity intensity of a peach lambic, nor the refreshing flair of a Bavarian hefeweizen, either of which I'd choose over this beer any day.

3.44/5 rDev -2.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.25
Poured from the 12 oz bottle into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass.
A: The beer is a nice orange color that is unable to be seen through due to the cloudiness. Head was 1.5 fingers thick, slightly off white and had pretty poor retention.
S: Definite peach aroma right in your face. This is like canned peaches with the syrup, but a fresh aroma cuts through at times. Underneath there is a very slight bready or crusty malt that brings to mind a peach pie. Depending on the sniff, good or cloying.
T: Lighter on the peach than expected. Somewhat light bodied but this prevents it from being too cloying. Wheaty profile in the back like a middle of the road weizen. Malt profile is slight but brings a bit of balance into the mix.
Overall this is a refreshing beer that almost pulls everything together. It is a bit thin to be great, but definitely worth picking up on relaxing Southern summer day.
