look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 12oz bottle into pilsner glass.

Appearance: Light cola color with a thick beige head that dissipates slowly with a bit of lace.

Smell: Wheat and yeast under sweet pecans and peach.

Taste: Sweet malt beginning, finishing with hints of wheat and strong peach flavor.

Mouthfeel: Thin with light carbonation and refreshing finish.

Dribnkability: Decent beer overall. Quite drinkable and a light, refreshing beer for the holiday season. Would go well with pecan pie or a Christmas dinner.

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.

Smells of peaches and very light grains, and is almost tea-like in this aspect; there is little on the nose to remind that this is a beer.

Thankfully, the power of the peach scent is toned down in its translation to the tongue, for although peach flavors are the first to wash over the tastebuds, they quickly give way and melt into nutty grain flavors, with a subtle undercurrent of pecan oils. Caramel flavors can also be pulled from the palate, as well as a light smattering of hops that gives a decent bitterness and helps counter the sugary peaches. The toasted grain/pecan flavors are what lingered the longest on my tongue, providing a nice aftertaste. I did find the brew to be slightly over-carbonated, and such fizziness actually proved distracting when trying to analyze the flavors.

Overall, this is a decently-balanced beer, the peach and pecan flavors mingling nicely with the malts and hops (and not over-poweringly so, which was a real concern when I'd only smelled the brew).

Pours chestnut brown, tan head.
Smell is all peaches, no trace of any weizen. Smells like a can of peaches in syrup.
The peach taste starts things out but the finish and is the dull American wheat beer taste.
This would be much better with the more of the banana taste of a decent dunkel weizen to go along with the peach sweetness.
