single finger head on a golden with orange/crimson hues and clear. Little lacing.

S: They certainly got it to smell like peach, which is good. Other citrus comes through as well.

T: Lots of peach here too. Also malts and grain with a mild musty hop flavor.

M: medium body, moderate carbonation and moist finish

Overall I liked the amount of peach in this one and was surprised they made it this strong. I like these limited release brews from Terrapin and their collaborators.

Picked this up in NJ around Christmas. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into my Lost Abbey stemware.

a - Pours a somewhat transparent bright orange color with one finger of fluffy white head and moderate carbonation evident. Spotty lacing left on the glass and lasts about a minute.

s - Smells of peaches, fruity malts, sweet fruits, sugar, and bready malts. Tons of sweet peaches. The nose reminds me a bit of those sugary, candy peach rings you can buy at the store. I actually like it.

t - Tastes of watered down peaches, sugar, and fruity malts. Also some herbal/tea taste to it. Taste is not bad, but a lot weaker and seems watered down.

m - Thin body and moderate carbonation. Smooth and creamy, but a bit too thin.

o - Overall a decent beer. I actually liked the nose quite a bit, but the taste was a lot weaker, and the mouthfeel wasn't great. Not a bad beer, but probably not really worth seeking out more than once.

Poured from the bottle into a Chimay goblet.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy orangish amber with a small layer of off white head that goes away almost completely.

Smell: The smell of this beer is chalked full of peaches. Rather sweet with a note from the grain and some tartness as well.

Taste: Not nearly as peach filled as the smell. The peaches are tastefully added and the beer isn't overly sweet. I'm not really picking up the tartness from the smell, but I am getting mild malt note. The finish is a bit underwhelming.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with strong, tingly carbonation and a slightly dry finish.

Overall: I enjoyed this beer and found it to be quite refreshing. While it smelled good, I was afraid that the peach would be too sweet and overpowering. I would have liked smoother carbonation and a stronger taste in the finish.

A: Pours a slightly hazy orange with a finger of white head that recedes into a sudsy ring with no lacing.

S: Lots of peach aromas here with some bubblegum and candy sugar aromas as well. There is a nice, sweet, peachy finish with just a touch of tartness.

T: For as strong as the peaches are in the aroma, they are barely present in the flavor. Some crystal malt-like flavors and bitter yeasty flavors dominate. The peaches are more on the aftertaste, providing a light tartness.

M: Medium-light body with medium carbonation, this beer is fairly light, dry, and clean.

O: Not a bad beer, but just too bland on the flavor. The aroma is full of peaches and, while I don't like extremely fruity beers, the peaches are barely there at all.

a: bright copper color, half inch of bright white head settled to a ring with a little lacing.

s: real peaches, not medicine!

t: more peaches, they're dominating the flavor, cant pick up on anything else.

m: full bodied, slight oily feel and a little over carbonated makes it lively on the tongue.

o: i think this is the first peach beer i had that didnt taste like medicine. very well done.

Poured into a snifter. No readable freshness date.

A- Pours a dark amber with a one finger head that retains a bit before settling into an 1/8 inch ring around the edge of the glass and splotchy surface bubbles grouped into completely still mold patterns indicating healthy yeast. Substantial lacing.

S- Sweet, fresh peach aroma that actually smells natural and is very delightful.

T- The peaches come through in the taste quite well, too. Not as pronounced as in the aroma, but I've seen other peach beers fall short of that taste/smell ratio. Also, it's not overly tart like some other brews that have peach flavor *cough* Festina Peche *cough*. A good amount of malts detected, but not so much with the hops. The alcohol is well-hidden but can finally be perceived after multiple sips in a row.

M- Medium-high carbonation that's balanced nicely with a medium body and a relatively dry finish.

O- I like it a lot. One of my new favorite peach beers.
