12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep hazy copper. Very leggy. Nice lacing and a lopsided head.

Smell - Peach aroma is nice. Smells sweet with some pale malt.

Taste - Sweet right up front. Peach blends in nicely. Creamy is an apt descriptor from the lactose. Slight grain and a mild tang from the fruit.

Mouthfeel - Creamy and kinda heavy. Pretty sweet too. Medium carbonation.

Overall - No idea how fresh this us, but it has no signs of Short's usual off flavors. Tastes pretty good and fits the title.

3.84/5  rDev -0.3%

A - Pours a golden orange color (aka: "peach color"...go figure), fluffy white head dies to leave very little lacing.

S - Peach extract and alcohol with a small trace of spice.

T - Tart and tangy candy peaches from start to finish, some cream, the fruit also comes through with a dash of acidity. Finishes with a mouth coating of sweet candy peach with some alcohol -but not cloying.

M - Thick medium body without being syrupy.

O - Very sweet and one bottle is enough, sort of in the same category of sweetness as Crème Brulee...more of a dessert beer.

A: Golden to golden-amber in color. Small white head forms for a short time.

S: Fermented peaches and a general fruity aroma smell quite nice.

T: Slightly less than ripe peach, sugary sweetness, and a solid malt backbone. Peach flavor could stand to be more prominent.

M: The high gravity is evident, yet the feel is not heavy. It's quite easy to quaff this one down.

O: A good fruit/dessert beer from Short's.

120z bottle into a tulip glass

A- Golden orange, fresh peach color. Medium size cream colored head that took several minutes to dissipate

S- Sweet fresh peach is the dominate aroma with the alcohol coming through. Slight Belgian spice.

T- Sweet natural peach flavor with not too much of the alcohol coming through. A bit too sweet.

M- Creamy lactose, thick viscosity and clean on the palate. Pretty easy drinking for the ABV. Probably the best aspect of the beer.

O- Pleasantly surprised at how fresh the peach taste is. A bit too sugary sweet but appreciate the refresh fruit flavor that I don't always get from fruit beers, be it Belgian or otherwise. Peaches are one of my favorite fruits and of the peach beers I've had, are one of my favorite fruits to put in beer. In fact, stone fruits in general seem to work well in beer. Had a few plum and apricot beers that were pretty good. One of the better more memorable Short's beers I've had and glad I picked it up.
