A - Dark ruby red brown and clear with a thick frothy off white head that settles out to a thin layer of fizz below a smattering of gentle lacing

S - Nutty, a touch fruity and thick malty presence

T - Similar to the nose in that the pecan taste leads the way with a heady pear following before the big malt fun happens. The malt flavor is characterized by primarily a molasses flavor.

M - Highly carbonated with decent body. Aftertaste is a little bitter but plenty sweet.

O - Fun holiday beer that really captures the style while taking a little holiday zig, or zag.

I get a finger of sand colored head. The body is a good looking ruby brown. Head has decent retention. Decent attempt at lacing.

Peaches are named on the label, and they dominate the aroma. Faint graininess is the only other thing coming through.

Malt with bananas and peaches is the first impression I get. It gets a little wheaty after that, but the peaches just keep going.

This is light-medium bodied. It starts going down rather quickly, but the carbonation seems to create some drag when it hits the back of the tongue. Overall it's a pleasant effect, as it helps keep it around longer for the flavor.
