Meh. I tried this on a hot day in Florida since I thought it might hit the spot and its just not doing it for me. The aroma and taste were like the syrup from a can of peaches, which I personally don't find appetizing. I understand it says real peaches but I just wasn't tasting a fresh peach there. Maybe it was just not the right batch.

Poured a hazy orange with a finger of white head and some sparse lacing. Smells of peach obviously. Tastes more artificial/rotten peach than fresh peach. Feels good in the mouth but the taste overpowers anything good. Overall not a fan of this wheat ale.

Wonderful cool peach flavor that's not overpowering or phony tasting. A bit dark for what I'd expect a peach ale to look like, but comes through clean and smooth.

Had a very artificial peach character to the aroma and flavor, not something I'll be revisiting.

Pours a slightly hazy gold with touches of amber. Medium collar, great lacing, good wisps and decent head. Aroma is great; like a fresh juicy peach with a some wheatiness to it as well. Taste is where it falls off a bit. I get the peach, but it tastes manufactured. Peach up front, wheaty banana in the middle and some odd bitter spiciness at the end. Medium body, low carbonation and a slightly grainy mouthfeel too.

A: Hazy orange with moderate lacing, pretty white head.

S: Candied peaches; delicious. Slight maltiness.

T: Slightly underwhelming, but kind of in a good way. I was expecting a Snapple type sweetness after nosing the beer, but the peach flavor here is much more natural and muted. A very slight sweetness with noticeable malts, peach flavor is there but not in full-force. Sweetness completely fade on the finish, leaving a slightly bitter taste in the mouth.

M: Moderate carbonation with a slight astringency, especially on the finish. Lighter on the body, but definitely has that unfiltered wheat texture to it.

O: I could see this being an extremely refreshing change of pace on a hot summer afternoon. Not something I would drink regularly, but interesting and worth a shot.
