This beer was shared by Grant from his cellar- thanks Grant! I was blown away by how good this was- far superior to what I expected. It's like they captured the essence of the most perfect peach in a bottle- I was just floored after tasting it. I've always liked Short's beers, but I expected something lighter, and frankly- more frivolous. The laser-like peach flavors just keep coming and coming. It's a knock-out. Quite bitter, with peaches and peach skins and some nice tannins backing everything up. Very deep ripe peach flavors. The flavors are enhanced by the wonderful aroma of a perfectly ripe peach that has just been bitten into- sweet juice, sweet-tart flesh, and nicely bitter skin. Not over the top, and tastes 100% natural. A nice creaminess on the finish rounds things out nicely. It's a pretty beer as well, pouring a ruddy orange with a very nice white, creamy head that fades in due course, but leaves behind some nice lacing. A revelation.

Purchased a couple 6 packs right from Shorts in Bellaire. Also had it on draft while I was there.

A: Pours a Dull-Orangey Yellow color with pretty good head.. leaves a slight sticky lace behind.

S: Sweet and Sugary peaches! Excellent.

T: A peach-puree tasty treat. Absolutely perfect. Finishes with a bitter bite and milk sugar punch in the face. A+

M: Full bodied robust peach goodness. Has a excellent finish that lingers on the pallet for quiet some time, leaving you begging for more

O: I wish this was available everywhere, all the time.. just like Bud Light in any bar. This stuff is absolutely amazing. Perfection in a bottle. People need to try this beer.

Big thanks to grinnellj for sending this one to me. This poured out as a deep golden color, basically orange with a moderate sized white head on top. The head retention settles leaving a thin film on top of the beer with a really nice looking lacing. The smell of the beer is really nice, it's like smelling fresh Peach nectar It almost smells like there is some hops in there too but it's mostly the sweetness of the Peach that I get the most. The taste is sweet and has a very subtle tartness to it, again more Peaches come through as well has the bitterness in the finish with the lingering sweetness as well. The mouthfeel is oily, it's thick, it's creamy and very smooth. There is a bit of booze heat in there but it's very subtle. Overall I'm just really impressed, this beer sets the bar pretty high. I am enjoying this one quite a bit, glad I have a few more to enjoy over time. Well worth looking into if you come across this beer. Very interesting and sure to please if you are even slightly interested in Fruit Beers.

750mL bottle.

Darker than expected brandishing a tarnished golden color with a stunning clarity. Good frothing and the lacing is amazing. Smells of fresh picked peaches from stem to meat to pit. Light lactose and biscuity malt aroma. Exceptionally smooth with a rolling crispness that feigns a full body, solid medium body is unwavering. Big orchard flavor of macerated peaches with the earthy woodiness of the pits. Slight hop bitterness and peppery warming alcohol help to balance the sweetness of the semi-tart peach flavor and malt character. Toasted biscuit and and earthy yeast trail in the drying finish.

Wow, look at Short's ... bringing the fruit beer to a god like level. A bottle of chaotic goodness. This is a beautiful beer, a strong ale at that and drinkable too boot ... lovey yet dangerous.

shared by bgramer at his epic 40th birthday tasting.

A-Copper colored almost like peach juice that was filterted. with a soft foamy head that slowly dissolves into thick white lacing.

S-Super peachy goodness with a ton of peach smell. I've never smelt a peach beer with anywhere close to this amount of peach pizzaz to it. Followed up with a creamy vanilla type scent. delicious

T-More and more peach. I'm shocked at how much peach flavored was packed into this beer. a creamy flavor follows with a hint of lactic peach kick at the end. delicious

M- nicely bodied with a perfect amount of carbonation. This beer was very drinkable and tasty

O- Overall a great beer that is one of the Short's beers that seems better done. Very delicious.

750ml bottle acquired in trade with hoppymeal (thanks!). Bottle # 155 / 820.

Poured a lighter and cloudy golden / amber color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of peaches, lactose, caramel, and just like a peach pie. Tastes of peaches, lactose, and vanilla. Had a nice sweetness to it. I usually don't like peaches, but this beer rocked (I found myself wanting more and more with every sip)!
