Don’t know why the reviews are so negative.
I’ll be honest — I’m not a beer drinker (this is my 1st review EVER). But I LOVE bourbon & this tastes a lot like drinking a good KY bourbon neat. Strong barrel flavor. Fruity nose is quite musky.
Don’t know about beer but love this wheat “ale.”

With the different Kentucky brews I have had from them I was expecting more. Smell was nice it had more of an apricot aroma than peach. Feel is thin but smooth, taste wasnt bad it has a fresh and fruity front, peach and apricot with a slight touch of burbon in the finish. All in all not bad but leaves you wanting more.

One of my favorite summer beers of all time. I love that it is not a cider but still subtly sweet. It is a little heavy, so I can only enjoy 1 or 2 during one sitting. It has notes of brown sugar and peach, but like I said NOT the overboard sweetness of a cider. Perfect combo!

Pours a crystal clear yellow with a huge pillow of a white head that lingers and leaves just a bit of lacing. Aroma is peach fuzz and booze. Flavor is not much more than the nose, but it's fabulous. A beer with peach in the name should taste peachy and this does. Feel is crisp and well carbonated. Great beer from a brewery that until this offering really has not impressed me.

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.
