Bottle 195/820.

A - 1 finger of off-white suds sit atop a hazy, nectarine colored brew in my snifter. Awesome retention. Decent legs. Huge lacing.

S - Peaches! Peaches! I fucking LOVE Peaches! Booze, awesomeness. PEACHES! Slightly spicy/flowery yeast. PEEEEAAACCCHHHESSS! Did I mention I really like peaches?

T - Holy amazing. Big, fresh, juicy peaches. Peach pit. A little bit of fusel alcohol. Semi-tart on the back on some sips and quite sweet on others. The warmth in the tummy is welcomed. Fruity, boozy... truly wonderful. Lactose manages to add a sweet element to the mix that balances what would've been a, seemingly, rather tart brew.

M - Creamy carbonation and hugely thick body. Almost syrupy.

D - As wonderful as this is and as peachy as it is, it still suffers from a rather noticeable ABV and the bigness/sweetness can detract at some points as well. Worth every penny, though.

Notes: I love Short's Brews, if you haven't already noticed. When I first heard about this, it was one of those "have-to-try-it" moments. Glad I had the chance. Between this and Abnormal Genius, it's hard to pick a favorite from the Imperial Series.

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.

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.

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.

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.
