This was a house recommendation by the proprietress of Mari's Six Pac 'n' Mor in Reading during my most recent foray up that way. Let's see how it pans out.

What are "mean peaches"? Are they like "Mean Girls"?

My angry pour resulted in a finger of bubbly, tawny head with decent retention. Unfiltered, indeed! It was a cloudy orangish-amber in color which made me angry. I feel a mean drunk coming on. Nose was as peachy as Georgia and trying to decide how much of that was "real peaches" and how much was "natural flavor added" just made me angry. Mouthfeel was soft and the peaches almost had a preserve-like sweetness that was thankfully offset by the wheat or I might have been angry. Finish was slightly tart, but definitely peachy. It all added up to a beer that made me mean and angry enough to fire the empty bottle through my neighbor's window. Now, I've got the fuzz to boot!

On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.

Poured a hazy light brassy hue with a two finger foamy white head.

The smell featured full blown sweat peach nectar, and that's it.

The taste consisted of a cloyingly sweet peach nectar with a slight as semblance of wheat malt in tow. A real mess.

The mouthfeel was strangely thin and astringent.

Not a very pleasant experience. This beer should be dialed down to about 4% and feature a stronger wheat profile.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 3.25

A: Golden-amber, cloudy. Head is off-white, fairly thin, and quickly fades, although lacing is decent.

S: No doubt about the peach! It's not quite peach cobbler, but it's sweet with a mild maltiness. Perhaps some banana and pepper in the far background.

T: No sweetness to speak of, and even the peach flavor is subdued compared to the aroma. It reminds me of an under-ripe peach (not tart, just not full-flavored yet). There's enough hops bitterness to confirm that this is a beer.

M: Thin (not quite watery, but headed that way), decently carbonated, and dry.

O: A drinkable if mundane fruited American wheat beer. It has neither the fruity intensity of a peach lambic, nor the refreshing flair of a Bavarian hefeweizen, either of which I'd choose over this beer any day.

Poured from the 12 oz bottle into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass.

A: The beer is a nice orange color that is unable to be seen through due to the cloudiness. Head was 1.5 fingers thick, slightly off white and had pretty poor retention.

S: Definite peach aroma right in your face. This is like canned peaches with the syrup, but a fresh aroma cuts through at times. Underneath there is a very slight bready or crusty malt that brings to mind a peach pie. Depending on the sniff, good or cloying.

T: Lighter on the peach than expected. Somewhat light bodied but this prevents it from being too cloying. Wheaty profile in the back like a middle of the road weizen. Malt profile is slight but brings a bit of balance into the mix.

Overall this is a refreshing beer that almost pulls everything together. It is a bit thin to be great, but definitely worth picking up on relaxing Southern summer day.
