A: The beer is rather hazy yellowish orange in color and poured with a thin off white head that quickly died down, leaving some lacing on the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: There are light aromas of wheat in the nose along with some light notes of peaches.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has flavors of pale wheat along with subtle hints of peaches, the latter of which is most noticeable in the finish. Neither sweetness nor bitterness are present.
M: It feels a little more than light-bodied on the palate and has a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The peach flavors make this beer slightly more interesting compared to a typical American Pale Wheat Ale but it would have been nicer if the peach aromas and flavors were stronger. It is very easy to drink.

I got a boulevard sampler on tap at the brerery, 4 regular and 4 seasonal releases. The peach wheat was good. not great, but a tasty wheat beer with a peach kick. only had a small sample on tap at the brewery after chrismas. then another pint, i guess. The peach comes pronounced as it warms. mmm

serving type: on-tap

Pours a cloudy, orange color. 1/5 inch head of a white color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of sweet malt, hint of peach, hint of wheat, and slight pale malt. Fits the style of a Fruit / Vegetable beer. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, wheat, peach, slight yeast, and slight pale malt. Overall, good appearance, blend, and feel.

made with colorado peaches specifically for the beer festival (according to the lovely barkeep at govnr's park here in denver). it poured a cloudy orange-hued golden into a 20oz pilsner glass. it looks like a normal wheat beer, with some sediment and a light airy white head. the smell is definitely fruity, but not distinctly peaches. smells like late summer. taste is well balanced and the peaches only present themselves in the finish. personally i think breckenridge could have done a little more with this to feature the peach. it is present, but faint. on par with most of the other peach beers i've had, but an order of magnitude behing dogfish head's festina peche in both quality and taste.

*it should be noted that this is the first beer i've added to the site, and was unsure to categorize it as a pale wheat or as a fruit beer, so i went with the latter. decide for yourself i guess where you'd classify this one.
