Notes: Happily hazy and highly crushable, this beer combines the subtle fruity nose and flavors of peach with the light-body look and feel of wheat to produce a new take on a timeless style. It's yours for the taking, and it's everything you need to make you feel like it's all Within Reach

Pours pretty, despite my aggression and overflow, nice golden color body, aggressive head that fades rather quickly.
As you can see the label says "subtle fruit nose". Not subtle enough for me. Smells like that fruit infused water you can buy.
Front end tastes similar to the aforementioned fruit water, but the finish is wheat beer, light body, grainy, subtle alcohol at the very back.
I can see a lot of people liking this, but its not for me.
Tried real hard to rate by style, not by personal taste.

Big time soft peach blossom aroma. Sweet smelling. Inviting.
Somewhat rich taste with that peach note. Head fades too soon though.
Mouthfeel is soft. Yummy for summer.

Pours a hazy yellow with a nice fizzy head although the head went away rather quickly and didn't lace the glass. The smell was really nice with a lot of the peach coming through. The flavor had a lot of peach to it but not a lot else. The feel was very refreshing and overall a very drinkable beer.

This is an excellent summer beer. If you are looking for a fruity wheat beer, this is it!

32 oz "Crowler" drunk from 40-45 F in a dimple pint glass.

Beer looks great, hazy dark straw/light golden hue. Bright white head to 4+ fingers on first pour! Settled after about 5 min. to a rocky, dense 1/2 inch of whip cream... looks great so far...

Smell is equally on par. Loads of yeasty, wheaty goodness with a massive kiss of peach. I'm actually looking forward to tasting this.

Taste... Wha- wha- what happened?!?!? There's a fair amount of bready yeasty-ness, a little tang of wheat, some light malt character, but hardy any peach compared to the nose. Combine that with a very light mouthfeel and it leaves me wondering if this can is off somehow... Not what I was expecting of a fruit beer, or a wheat beer for that matter... Makes me wonder how they can use enough wheat to make this beer as cloudy as it is without having a decent body to it.

Overall, (and I hate when I have to say this about a local beer) kind of a disappointment... This beer is a tease, looks and smells great, but not enough body to be considered a wheat in my book, and not nearly enough fruit flavor to satisfy me in the fruit beer category. Heck, Heady has more fruit flavor to their beer, and they don't even use fruit! Kinda tastes like if someone watered down BBC Steel Rail, added just enough wheat to make it cloudy, and added just enough fruit juice where you could pick up on it. Sorry Half Full, it's a miss - really considering not finishing it...

Surprisingly good, I was serving drinks for an event that has this. Its what you would expect from a wheat beer, has a medium peach flavor that i was impressed by, does a good job staying away from the swallowing Skoal Peach flavor. Half Full also is also very helpful at serving there beers
