The beer pours a hazy yellow-orange with a giant foamy head that takes several minutes to settle. There was great lacing and retention before settling. There is heavy sediment and cloudiness. The nose is sweet with a huge amount of peach fruitiness. The taste doesn't follow the beer's nose with a slight amount of peach and a big amount of wheat and yeast. The mouthfeel is as expected, not too thick/thin, but there is an odd aftertaste that deviates from my expectations. I would probably drink this beer again, but I'd opt for an Ithaca apricot wheat instead.

A: hazy; honey colored; 1 finger off white head that receded quickly; moderate lacing;

S: intense fresh and canned peaches;

T: canned peaches up front, but not as intense as the aroma; by mid-palate, wheat takes over and dominates through the finish; mild bitterness on the finish;

M: light to medium bodied; moderate carbonation;

O: I would have liked a more intense peach flavor;

12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a very hazy dark orange with some chunks floating around. Half finger head that quickly disappears.

The smell is actually pretty nice. Tons of peach with some bubblegum and banana.

Everything seems to go wrong on the taste. Some artificial tasting peach at first quickly followed by bubble gum and an band aid flavor. Wonder if this is infected? A mild hop bitterness cleans the palate on the finish.

Overall, I wasn't impressed. The odd medicinal flavor through me off. But even that aside, nothing seemed to meld together and the flavors were all over the place. Not a good effort.
