12 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a cloudy golden/orange color with an inch off-white head that didn't stay around for too long. There's a small amount of lacing left on the glass. The beer smells mostly like peaches and peach syrup, and a bit of wheat. I like the aroma of this brew a lot. However, the taste isn't quite as nice. The peach taste seems more artificial to me, and there's a lingering bitter finish. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's a bit slick and has a good level of carbonation. It's a decent enough brew overall. I think it's also overpriced at $10.99 a 6-pack, but I won't have any problems finishing it. I would buy this again, but just not at that price.

Strong aroma has a very firm overtone of peach - it really does smell like a freshly cut peach, and I love peaches! It has a wheaty hint as well. Pours a hazy, nearly opaque honey golden with a thick and rather persistent palest honey-tan head. Wheaty flavor has a firm and somewhat sweet, but not too sweet, overtone of peach. Got me thinking - is it possible to make peach cider or peach wine? Well, the Japanese make plum wine - pourquoi pas? OK, enough digression. Texture has good body and good fizz, definitely some peach in the finish. If you love peaches, you should love this beer.

A: A very cloudy orange color with chunks of yeast floating. Thin white head.

S: Almost smells like fresh peaches and cream. A nice wheat aroma to it also.

T: It almost tastes like an orange creamsicle with a little bit of peach mixed in. Finishes a little bit bitter and dry with a lingering peaches and cream flavor.

M: Very smooth mouthfeel with light carbonation. About as drinkable as it gets.

O: The flavors in this beer are very nice. If you like peach beers then I would recommend this one. It differs from others in the fact that it finishes dry which I like. Some others can be over the top sweet.

On tap at Barley's in Asheville

A - pours a hazy orangeish yellow with a thin layer of white head.

S - smells like peaches and a hint of wheat

T - wheat, peaches, a bit sweet, peach cobbler

M - light, smooth, little carbonation

This is a decent beer that's refreshing and easily drinkable. It's worth trying.

A: Pours a cloudy golden orange in color with a significant amount of sediment in suspension in the bottom half of the beer. The beer has a finger tall foamy off-white head that reduces quickly to a patch of thin film towards the center of the beer and a thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Very light lacing is observed.

S: The smell of this beer is great - strong aromas of peaches just like you would find at a farmer's market anywhere in the South in summertime. Wonderful peach sweetness...

T: The flavor of this beer is rather mild with some lingering bitterness. There is very little of the peach sweetness from the smell in the flavor and a light amount of wheat notes. Some light notes of peach which tastes quite natural, not artificial like you often find.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Light and easy to drink, along with being refreshing. I was a little disappointed by how light the peach flavors were though I appreciate the fact that the beer was not overly sweet or artificially flavored. The smell of this beer is very inviting.

A-Pours like mop-water. Very murky and hazed. Light crust of bubbles. Head dies down to nearly nothing.

S-An explosive whiff of artificial peaches. Smells like melted down Peach flavored Jolly Ranchers. Behind the whopping sugared peach aroma is a subtly pleasant combination of bread and spice.

T-The taste initially strangles the tongue with the peach flavor. However, the flavor dies down and segways into the beer's underbelly. Light spice and bready malt hides behind the peaches. Crisp underlying flavor helps to mellow out the rigid initial flavor of fake peach.

M-The body is fuller than most Fruit beers. Carbonation is not very intense. The feel works well with the beer's body and flavor profile.

O/D-Tastes better than it sounds. Wouldn't order it again. Would expect this Peach Beer to taste worse.
