I don't taste much difference between this and their regular flagship brew, and that's pretty okay with me. They're both solid beers and this one fits in line with many holiday beers in that it's safe; it's not going to knock your socks off, but it's not bad at all.

A: Red-amber color. Poured a 1 finger tan head that dissipated to a broken skim. Lacing washed down the glass.

S: Pecans and sweet caramel. Peaches in the background with some muted spices.

T: Sweet light fruit; primarily peaches. Sweet malt comes through a little in the middle; did not detect a wheeat character I expected.Mild bitter finish.

M: Light-to-medium body. Ample carbonation. Crips and clean.

D: Flavorful and drinkable. The dominant light fruit sweetness hinder sessionablity.

This was the first holiday beer i saw this year. Bought it in late october, Tried one mid-nov.

Pours a nut-ruby color. off-white dirty looking head maintains alittle with little lace.

Mind carbonation sends peach jam on toaste to the nose. Toasted malts and pecan round out the flavor profile.

A mild hop with slight bittering leaves the mouth slight dry with lingering esters of peach.

Overall an interesting holiday beer id say by its self. A good reason to break out those tasteing glasses for family to try before they commit and waist a good beer.
