look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Appearance is a hazy medium yellow with white cap and lacing.

Clean aroma of ripe peach and little else.

Taste is flawed, nothing like the scent. Peach, yes, but not a ripe one or even fresh for that matter. It's as if the brewer used peach peels or skins for flavoring and the brewing extracted some bitterness from them. Could be hops but it's a disjointed juxtaposition of flavors. The underlying wheat ale is very mild and seems to serve primarily as a carrier for the peach.

Light texture with balancing carbonation.

Not their best effort I'm afraid. If I hadn't paid good money for this I wouldn't even finish it.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a pint glass. The appearance is a hazy golden yellow with a large white head. The aroma is peach some hops. The taste follows the nose.

1L howler from the 7 Degrees liquor store in north side Edmonton - hey, maybe actually write the name of the beer that I purchased on the cutesy, if spare label attached thereon, eh?

This beer pours a hazy, pale golden yellow colour, with a near-teeming tower of puffy, loosely foamy, and bubbly off-white head, which leaves some random sudsy island group lace around the glass as it quickly blows off.

It smells of grainy wheaten malt, some peach and nectarine orchard fruitiness, wet saltine crackers, a touch of hard water flintiness, and some weak earthy, leafy, and grassy green hop bitterness. The taste is bready and doughy pale and wheaty malt, wanly fruity peach notes, further generic earthy stone fruitiness, a touch of edgy yeast, and some still hard to pin down leafy, weedy, and floral hoppiness.

The bubbles are fairly innocuous in their plainly rendered frothiness, the body a solid medium weight, and generally smooth, nothing really capable of running interference here willing to stick its fool neck out, y'know? It finishes well off-dry, with both the mixed malt and stone fruitiness taking on the lingering day with a fervour, of sorts.

Overall, not a bad fruit beer, only the singular peach component kind of duffing it, as such, which implies a certain lacking, but really, this one is hefty and heady enough to overcome that, and makes for a titillating and refreshing summer quaffer, in the end.
