Pours a reddish-tan with a hefty head which dwindles to ~1/4inch. First smells strongly of peaches, slightly nutty and then peachy lingering. Tastes similar to smell, except tastes more like a dunkelweizen beer. Does not smell all that much like beer to me. The taste is not too strong, with a slightly wheaty finish precluded by light hoppy bite. Feels a bit to fizzy, I could have gone for a slightly greater viscosity with less fizzy carbonation. Overall, a fun beer to try, but not something worth going out of your way for. Very cool bottle, though!

I got this brew in a trade with JJFoodie, Thanks Justin!

12oz bottle served in a standard pint glass.

Clear amber color with a small beige head that thinned to a ring.
The aroma is just like canned peaches.
The taste is just peachy, seriously it's pretty much all peaches with just a bit of a nutty taste towards the finish.
Medium bodied with a smooth feel.
It's drinkable provided you like the taste of peaches.
