I've had this at the Brewery in a flight and I tried it again out of a can once before that. I thought maybe the can was flawed but it's just as bad from the brewery.

Smells of peach jolly rancher. Notes of band-aid and industrial antiseptic and peach flavored Orajel if that were thing. Feel is almost numbing but that is probably just a psychological reaction to the Orajel association.

This is a nice little brewery with many other respectable brews. Steer clear of this one unless you want to give it to someone as a prank.

This beer pours a golden color, with a minimal short lasting white head.
The nose is really peach smelling. Really not much else beyond that. The peach aroma is quite rich smelling.
Taste - I get the peach, but it also has a strange flavor that I really don't quite get. Quite hard to describe. It isn't the best flavor.
The body is moderate, and that strange flavor does stick in my throat.
This is a strange and bizarre beer. Not a big fan of it.

Hazy amber color, hints of tropical fruit on the nose, but very muted. Lightly structured IPA with a soft peach finish. Great for peach lovers, not a complex enough finish.

At the Tap House in Greenville SC. Not always a fruit beer fan, but this one was good. Says something (good? bad?) when my non-beer drinking companions liked the smell. It smells like peaches, first and foremost. And that's great. But after awhile, when what you really want is a good beer, I found the taste (and sweetness) a bit cloying. Again, not my style but definitely I'd try again and use to coax non-beer folks to try. A great introductory beverage to craft beer IMHO.

On tap:
Pours a nice golden, with a response ve but hidden head. Lacing is fleeting.

Nose has a peach note, nicely, but it's sitting on a sweet cardboard - like stale sweetened cereal.

Taste follows, but not as sweet initially. It builds up. A clay-like earthy note presents a little more than cardboard. The peach fights with a little tartness, but resigns itself to the aftertaste (along with a surprising light mint or pine note).

Feel was ok, but this was just not a beer for me. I can drink one, but getting through two would be a bit of a chore.

Poured from a bottle into a glass.

Cloudy golden amber. Nearly headless. Smelled some wheat funk at first, but then the peach took over. Very peachy and sweet swelling. Peach definitely dominated the taste, but it was a real and pleasant peach taste, not a fake or candy peach taste. Some wheat twang at the finish. Enjoyable for a fruit beer.

Pours cloudy, like most wheat ales, to a handsome golden color. Head is minimal. Aroma of peaches is slight, but pleasant. The taste of fresh peaches is unmistakable and pleasant, even for this guy who typically doesn't enjoy fruit in his brew. This is a nice change from the ordinary.
