look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a muddy orange color and a thick, cloudy consistency. There was a thin, foamy head that quickly dissipated and average lacing.

S: Smelled of peaches and a little note of wheat.

T: Like the smell, peaches dominated the flavor. Had a slight taste of wheat, but not much else. Reminded me more of a fruit/vegetable beer than an American pale wheat ale.

M: A decent amount of carbonation with a somewhat oily finish. Light-bodied.

D: A lightweight, drinkable beer, but not something I'd return to.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: 1 inch head, hazy, orange-brown in color, moderate carbonation

Smell: sour peach mix

Taste: peach, white grape, wheat, and light hops

Mouthfeel: sweet with light bitterness, light bodied with moderate carbonation

Overall: An above average peachy ale that has enough bitterness to balance out the fruit. Nothing groundbreaking, but I could see myself finishing off a six pack quickly during the warmer months.

12 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a cloudy golden/orange color with an inch off-white head that didn't stay around for too long. There's a small amount of lacing left on the glass. The beer smells mostly like peaches and peach syrup, and a bit of wheat. I like the aroma of this brew a lot. However, the taste isn't quite as nice. The peach taste seems more artificial to me, and there's a lingering bitter finish. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's a bit slick and has a good level of carbonation. It's a decent enough brew overall. I think it's also overpriced at $10.99 a 6-pack, but I won't have any problems finishing it. I would buy this again, but just not at that price.

A - Color is a hazy peach colored amber. Head is a pretty good half inch with slight sticky lacing. Damn big chunks of sediment.

S - Smells like peach schnapps with a mild wheat backbone. Smells pretty good actually.

T - Well it actually doesn't have too much sweet taste more of a natural fruit skin kind of flavor. Tart and acidic with the wheat working into the flavor. Damn I wanted more sweet... Actually tastes like beer.

M - Medium bodied something about the body makes it hard to drink.

Overall well I can't get this locally and really don't want to drink it again. Was different that sweeter, artificial flavored peach beers.

Another SE gem sent to me from billab914.

12oz bottle poured into my Deschutes Pint.

A - Pours a pale, cloudy medium orange with a thin, near-white head.

S - Strong peach, and that is it.

T - Peaches, and some wheat flavors.

D - Surprisingly mild and un-sweet for a fruit forward beer. Light in the mouht.

O - Overall, not bad. This isn't my favorite style, but I enjoyed this one.

Nice-looking beer.
Aroma a little lacking.
Taste a lot lacking. Peaches way too subtle for me.

A - Hazy honey colored, light cream head.

S - Candied peaches mostly. Pretty overwhelming, maybe light hints of a typical wheat beer.

T - Sulfury peach flavored Flintstone's vitamins. Medicinal and fake peach flavor. I'm really stressing to find something good to say about the flavor. But it escapes me.

M - Other than the lingering sulfuric finish, the body is appropriately light and well carbonated

A-Hazy glowing tan color..some lacing on glass

S-fresh real peaches...not too sugary or sweet smelling...

T-I was worried this was going to be one of those artificial super sweet flavored wheats...it is not...peach is evident on the taste and somewhat prominantly but this also has a bit hop bite, a splash of alcohol and very light pucker on the finish...

M-Medium bodied...dry on the finish...6% a bit high for my liking for a fruit wheat beer....

O-Glad I tried it. Above average....not bad but nothing I will buy again....would be a better beer at a lower ABV in my opinion...

Reviewed from notes:

appearance: orangish yellow with a 1 finger white head

smell: sweet, peaches, malts, citrus

taste: sweet, tart, peaches, malts,

mouthfeel: mild carbonation, medium body,

overall: a decent summertime beer especially if you like peaches. I had no problem finishing the bottle but if you don't like peaches you might want to stay away.

Cheers,
The CPJ
