An unfiltered American wheat ale made with real mean peaches. The only thing missing is the fuzz. Savor the anger. Available during the late Spring and Summer months.

A: Hazy, amber/gold color. Thin head, zero lacing

S: Peaches and some more peaches

T: A whole lotta peaches and nothing else.

M: exploding peaches. Heavily carbonated which actually compliments the peaches.

Overall: I'm not a huge peach person, but this was a very solid peach wheat. Sure it was overpowering, but it was over powering in a good way. Would love to try it on draft.

I don't typically enjoy wheat beers. I usually don't even think to order them because I don't even feel like I can judge them fairly, but while visiting this brewery in SC I decided to try it.

I'm sure this beer changes from year to year because it is a seasonal. It pours very cloudy and orange. It has a very nice head though and smells sweet and peachy. I'm guessing they use frozen peaches because fresh would probably add a very inconsistant flavoring depending on the crop.

I can definitely taste the higher abv in this beer. It has a somewhat bitter finish, but think it's a great wheat beer.

A - A very cloudy golden color. TONS of sediment floating in the glass...obviously unfiltered. I am a sucker for sediment floating through out the beer

S - Peaches, peaches, and more peaches. That is all

T -Sweet peaches. Millions of peaches, peaches for me

M - Medium bodied, lots of carbonation

O - For those who love Peach. Seriously. It dominates everything else.

A - Color is a hazy peach colored amber. Head is a pretty good half inch with slight sticky lacing. Damn big chunks of sediment.

S - Smells like peach schnapps with a mild wheat backbone. Smells pretty good actually.

T - Well it actually doesn't have too much sweet taste more of a natural fruit skin kind of flavor. Tart and acidic with the wheat working into the flavor. Damn I wanted more sweet... Actually tastes like beer.

M - Medium bodied something about the body makes it hard to drink.

Overall well I can't get this locally and really don't want to drink it again. Was different that sweeter, artificial flavored peach beers.

12 oz bottle served in a Duvel tulip.

Pours a cloud peach amber with a quickly fading soapy off white head. Aroma is canned peach syrup with light wheat and straw. Grainy wheat body with surprisingly not as much sweetness as expected. Still artificial peach sweetness dominates throughout and syrup lingers through the finish. Syrupy, medium thick body with low carbonation. Well, I enjoyed this more than I expected and it had less Jolly Rancher like quality to it than others have attributed, but still not something I'd return to.
