One of the best beers I have ever had. Love it, but have not been able to find it here in the midwest, only CA.

This is the Brainless on Peaches Belgian Style Ale - Malt Beverage Brewed with Peach and Aged in French Oak Barrels; part of the Exponential Series from Epic Brewing out of Salt Lake City Utah.

This beer pours amber-orange in color with light head that dissipates quickly. The aroma of great Belgian ale and oak wafts the nostrils gently with a light flowering note that teases of citrus in bloom.

The up front taste is that of an oaked Belgian, very little difference between it and many other Belgians. Quickly the citrus taste complements the oak taste and the taste of peaches lingers in the mouth with a salty background that anticipates the next sip.

I have never had an Epic Brewing beer before; they are new to the state of Arizona. This example proves the co-founder's statement that they are a boutique brewery. This is a beer that speaks well of the people doing the brewing. It is difficult to get a peach beer to not be overpowered by the fruit flavor, or just be tasteless and boring, we've all seen examples of that!

If you hate fruit beers, this is a beer to taste. You won't hate it. If you enjoy fruit beers, this might surprise you with how beery it is. At 10.5% ABV it is surprisingly drinkable, like a Belgian should be. This is an excellent example of what a brewer can do to open a style that some consider not worth tasting. Can't wait until we get more Epic beers here in AZ!

22 oz. bomber, Release No. 11,

A: Pours a brilliant full orange with a medium white head, good lace and retention.

S: Lovely peaches and cream with a distinct Belgian tilt. Yeast, pepper, along with the fruitiness, quite lovely. As the beer warms the peaches come much more to the forefront, if you enjoy this smell like I do, dont serve this under 55F.

T: Peach attacks right away, but then goes into something distinctly more Belgian. Grassy hops, yeast and white pepper, spicy for sure. Gets this interesting dessert peach puree flavour there at the end, but just as soon as I found it, it goes back to Belgium and dries out heavily for the denouement.

M: Full-bodied, frothy but does have some crisp carbonation character. Off-dry overall with a very mild acidity. Complex.

O: This is a fun beer to delve into. Everything is in balance and the peach flavour is true and delicious. Certainly not an over the top fruit beer. Can't wait to try the Cherry version.
