Bottled poured into FFF Teku

A - Copper with golden hues. Off-white head formed but slowly receded to only be on the sides

S - Peaches are the main component as it smells like biting into a fresh, juicy peach. I get a light cream sweetness but not much. Also, a slight pepper spice seems to come through

T - This is a sweet beer initially as I get a lot of sugar and sweet cream. The peach comes in the middle to give it a slight peach fruitiness that makes it taste like those sugar coated peach rings you can buy at a gas station. There is a alcohol bite, a slight metallic flavor, and some bittering hops that comes in near the finish that prevent it from being cloying.

M - Thick, syrupy beer that is slightly astringent in the finish

O - Like many Short's beers, this is interesting. It has good peach flavor too it but it is soo sweet that it's hard to drink too much of this. Worth the try but wish it wasn't so sugary.

Vintage: 2012
Glass: Southampton Tulip

I just recently completed the 2007 Short's Imperial Series that consists of 13 750ml. limited release bottles (Peaches & Creme is the 12th 750ml. bottle), with a lot of help from the generous hoppymeal. A big thanks goes out to hotpipes29 (eric) for getting me this newly released 12oz. bottle to sample! Now, I don't have to breakup the Imperial Series just yet to taste this long time want.

Poured a burnt orange in color w/ a skim coat white head that left very light lacing. Aromas of peaches, wheat, wood (oak), and vanilla. The taste paralleled the nose starting off w/ big peaches up front, leading into wheat and breadiness, and finishing w/ vanilla, a touch of booze, and mild hop bite. Medium bodied w/ carbonation on the lower side. Very easy to drink w/ great flavors that were well balanced. I drank my 12oz. w/ ease as it never became cloying at any point and the flavors don't taste fresh and not artificial.

Overall, congrats to Short's for this success in a bottle! This brew tastes like what it claims to be, Peaches & Creme in the form of a beer. My only knock on the beer is the low carbonation. If Short's maybe would back off the malts a bit and increase the carbonation this beer could go from very good to amazing.
