Thanks for the bottle steebo777, this was poured into HF glass, no freshness date on the 12 oz bottle
Fairly clear copper pour with a cream-colored head of half an inch thickness, small and medium bubbles, good retention
Not a lot on the aroma, cream is the main flavor I get, some very subtle peach notes, some butterscotch, candied malts, other than that not a lot going on.
Taste is incredibly unique. This tastes quite literally like a bowl of peaches and cream. It is way too sweet to drink more than several ounces of it, but the flavors burst off the palate. Flavor profile of peaches and cream lingers. Not much bitterness. No alcohol burn.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, soft, smooth, sticky finish, low carbonation.
Overall this was one of the more unique beers I've ever tried. Too sweet and cloying for everyday consumption, but split between a couple people this is a tasty summer dessert beer.

I've gotten really big into microbrews the past year and a half. Being that I'm in Michigan I've been focusing on local brews. I've gotten really big into shorts. With that being said I stumbled across a 6er of this one day and was told it was the last one they had. I decided to give it a shot and didn't like it. Generally I like fruity beers but I feel they missed with this one. My buddy and I both tried it and we felt that it just didn't work. I've tried getting my way through the 6 pack and it just hasn't worked.

A - Deep oranger with a thin white head. Nice lacing.
S - Peaches and sweet cream. Some faint spices are present as well.
T - Sweet and tart peaches right up front. Good amount of milk sugar comes through next. Slight alcohol taste in the finish.
M - Heavy mouthfeel with a very smooth finish. Alcohol provides a nice warming feeling.
O - A very unique offering from Short's. Worth trying but can't see myself having more than one.

3.58/5 rDev -7%
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.
