Head settles into a thin creamline with clear half-domes that peak into the liquid gold below.

Sweet citrus aroma--OG tangerine sour Altoids--and fresh cut mango. Lemongrass introduces a greener element along with a wipeout of watermelon. There's an element of peach, but it's down on the list and I was only told it would be there.

Juicy. Carbonation is superfine if there at all. Beer has a heavier body, but slick feel.

Expecting some sour peach punch or something of the ilk. Instead, I get a doughy peach buckle with a generous amount of lemon peel baked on top served with a glass of power pineapple and mondo mango orangeade. It seems they opted for the subtly sweet donut peaches and nectarines take over the more syrupy cling peaches. It holds up well against the base beer though. Maybe when it warms up the peachier elements will wake up more; but, as it sits- lemon sourdough, and potstickers with an orange-soy sauce. Whatever the malt/yeast combo be the end result is reminiscent of Carton's dub series.

Poured from a 32 oz growler into a stemmed tulip glass.

Pours a hazy deep orange color with 3 fingers of creamy white head. The head leaves a ton of splotchy lacing as it settles into a thick blanket of foam.

The aroma is similar to OG Baby Ducks: Lots of citrus with some mango and melon not far behind. The peach is present, though surprisingly subtle.

Unlike the aroma, the peach note is very assertive in the flavor. There are notes of tangerines, oranges, and grapefruit with a nice doughy malt backbone.

The feel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Very fluffy and smooth with a dry finish.

Overall, this is every bit as good as Fuzzy Baby Ducks. If you like peach, and you like FBD, you'll love this beer.
