1497th Review on BA
Bottle to Goblet
No bottle date- Although I know its 2012 Release
Thanks to ErikKoppin for this one
App- A almost pure liquid gold color on the pour. Maybe at best a 1/2 finger kind of tan/off white head formed and was gone. Creamy sherry/whiskey/cordial coloring to it. No cling. Shimmery.
Smell- For me this was a tad over sweet. I posted on Untappd that this smelled like those liquid peach rings from when we were kids. Was a unique smell, just wasnt for me. A big mix of sugary milk on the aromatics
Taste- I really enjoyed the 1st couple sips on this one. The golden ale with a little bit of yeast shined through when cold. However, when warm it was much more malty, sweet, sugar and milk. It really did assault on taste. I like sweet too as I loved ST Creme Brulee. I could only do 6oz. As I mentioned much better cold.
Mouth- A fairly light medium body with a overall medium light cordial carbonation. The residual booze was there along with a yogurt tinge and of course the peaches.
Drink. Unique, tasty but too sweet for me and thats saying something for me.

Bottle poured into a Siciliano's pokal.
A- A normal pour created a dense, 1-1/2 finger, khaki head that dropped to a thin film and left great sticky spots on the glass. The body was a deep, dark golden color. Initially a bit hazy, but it cleared up. Moderate carbonation and a little sediment floating around.
S- definitely peachy, without overwhelming the senses. Grassy/herbal hops. The more I smell, the more fresh peaches I perceive. Sugary sweetness as well.
T- Hoppy at first. Then, a solid shot of peaches and sweet cream. I sense higher ABV in the full, sweet, malty flavor, without any harshness. Well balanced. When I say well balanced, I mean EVERYTHING is turned up a couple notches. Relatively sweet, but hints of tart as you might find in a peach.
M- Quite viscus. Moderate carbonation tries to keep up with the full, full body. More suspicions of the well hidden ABV.
O- It really hits the mark, as Short's often does with its experimental beers. Robust, while quite drinkable.

A 750 mL bottle from the 2007 run, #431 of 820. Shared with ksak.
A: The peach ale is an amber color, somewhere on the autumnal scale between orange and brown; translucent only if you've got a nearby light source. Off-white, the head is, doesn't lace though.
S: The aromas are peachy, even 5 years in. The sweetness is tempered by the lactose and booziness. Overall the ale still has it going on but the caramel body is slowing creeping up.
T: My first sip revealed more spices than the nose hinted at - cinnamon cones through first, setting up the peaches. Those fruits are juicy, still sugary after all these years. The creamy body is evident, a sweetness that compliments the sweetness of the peaches. Vanilla mixes with the cinnamon, even a woody firmness (thanks vanilla) is hinted at. The strength of the ale is palpable but it doesn't weigh on me. A very thick ale.
M: Yeah, it's held up very nicely over 5+ years, sweet and peachy with a nice cream finish. The spiciness, paired with peaches, is like a flaming peach dessert.

Big thanks to Deuane yet again for this one. A 750ml bottle, #290/820 from 2007
A - Pours hazy copper orange with a nice pillow of one finger tall off-white head leaving spotty lacing down the glass.
S - Smells of tons of ripe peaches, creamy milk, vanilla, and some lactic sweetness. How there is this much peach aroma after five years is beyond me.
T - Starts off with a big peachy kick in the teeth slowly giving way to a creamy smooth core with hints of vanilla and even more lactic sweetness. A tiny bit of oxidation creeps in at the very last moment but it is to be expected here. The alcohol is hidden VERY well, I had no idea this was 9.5% at all. The finish is pretty sweet with a tiny hint of dryness, lingering for a short period of time.
M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Smooth, juicy, goodness in the feel with a slight bit of oxidation creeping in toward the end.
O - This is five years old? Could have fooled me. There is still PLENTY of peaches lurking inside this one. I have had some bad experiences with Short's beers recently that have really turned me off them but when you try something like this one it all seems to make sense again. Great beer, thanks again Deuane!

Bottle shared by Jason - part of his WW5 haul. Served in a tulip glass.
A - Loads of orange-tinged foam that settles to a full cap, splotchy lace, and a hazy orange-red body.
S - Peaches! Some lactose sweetness, sweet grains, and light oxidation that isn't totally unexpected for a 5-year-old beer.
T - Taste is a bit less good - peaches are more restrained and oxidation and a strange bitterness appears to have crept in. Lactose and generic malt sweetness prevail mostly. This was better when I last had it.
M - Smooth texture, medium body and carbonation, and some tannic pulpy fruit character in the finish. Alcohol is shockingly well-hidden - I didn't realize this was 9.5%!
D - Still holding up reasonably well for a 2006 fruit beer. If it weren't for the mild oxidation this would be pretty fantastic stuff. Hope Shorts makes it again at some point. Quite drinkable for something so sweet and strong.

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.
