Nice gold straw color with slight chill haze. 1 thin ring of white bubbly head in my Calusa snifter.

Hard to get a nose on this one, had to swirl it until I got froth on top; some sweet peach ring notes, slight cinnamon, white wine. Very faint, almost nonexistent.

Flavor is of astringent alcohol, peach schnapps, faint nectarine, nail polish remover, more peach schnapps.

Feel is thin, hot, and cutting. Dryness on the end.

Overall, kind of a flop. Like drinking peach schnapps and nail polish remover.

Once again, another try of All tech and another mediocre beer. Look is average and the aroma, although having a creamy peach presence seems to be a touch off, almost a stale, funky smell. Taste is decent with the peach but the hop bitterness is not pleasant and exhibits more of a metallic feel. Finish is watery and overall, not enough complexity, barrel or balance.

12 oz bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a thin fizzy white head that fades quickly. Aroma of candied peaches and wheat. The taste is peaches, wood, wheat, mild hops and bourbon. Thin bodied and not well balanced.

From the 12 oz bottle in a snifter. This nice American wheat pours a nice
clear golden with a firm head of white foam that subsides to a thick ring, thin
layer, and shows some nice light lacing. Nose of peaches, sweet honey malts,
and soft wheat. Flavors follow the nose with light exception; soft wheat dances
on a bushel of ripe peaches and honey malts that mingle with grain as light oaken
notes show light traces of vanilla and a hint of bourbon that is so subtle one could
strain a taste bud looking for it. Nice mouth feel; medium light body, medium carbonation,
and a lightly dry finish.

Overall, a solid brew from a fine brewer.

Cheers

Very simply ...Outstanding-The look, the smell, the taste and the after taste is exactly what you would think based on the name. 8% is very very well hidden. The taste is peach up front with the bourbon/vanilla on the back end. This brewery is starting to produce some outstanding beer. The smell matches the taste for sure. Very creamy mouth feel. This one is a winner. I wish it was offered all year long.

Poured from 12-ounce bottle into a Craft Beer Club sampling glass. Light golden color, with a one-finger white head. One whiff of this tells you that this is not going to be everyone's cup of tea, so to speak. Peach forward, with bourbon and vanilla. These carry over to the palate as well, with some nice alcohol warmth (but not too much) and a bit of oakiness on the finish. The peach flavors provide a nice complement to the base beer. If you like Southern Comfort, this is right up your alley.

First let me say that I'm torn with this type of beer. It's sweet and full of peach nose and flavor and the 8% is pretty well hidden. I can't imagine this being an American Stong Ale but maybe I'm just not familiar with the style. It's got a light to medium gold color with a white head. It has less carbonation and it's a bit thin. I like this beer, if I had to drink fruit beer, this would do nicely.

I recently had a great experience with the Kentucky Bourbon Barrel on tap so I was excited to find this Peach Barrel in a bottle.
L: Golden, creamy head.
S: Sweet bourbon and woody aroma with softer peach notes and beer smell in the background.
T: Flavor matches the aroma.
F: Light to medium, a little bite from the Bourbon booze but it got a little flat towards the end.
O: This was good but the Peach version isn't nearly as good and flavorful as the Kentucky Bourbon Barrel. This tasted like it a cheaper beer in a Peach Bourbon Barrel. It wasn't as stout or distinct as I had hoped it would be. Wouldn't be scared to buy it again though.

Pours a dark golden color with a finger width white head. Great lacing. Smell is sweet and peachy. Taste is sweet and peachy with a wheat aftertaste. Mouthfeel is creamy and nice. Overall if you like sweet and fruity beers you'll like this.
