Bought a six in Greenville SC
Pours a cloudy haze with wheat sediment.
You do get the peach and wheat aroma. Like a peach cream fizz.
A medium mouthfeel and nice carbonation . It's refreshing not overwhelming.
This is an area known for their peaches and the beer is up and coming as well.
This one can be a chick beer or a summer favorite ...

P: Hazed orangish golden body with no head.

S: Artificial peach and wheat.

T/M: More artificial peach less wheat. This reminds me of a flat peach faygo or maybe a peach flavored Mich Ultra. The carbonation was not there and the body was thin.

O: If this was not a $3 special I would have complained and sent it back. I'm highly disappointed in this considering how many people rave about this beer. I hate being so negative but I liked nothing that this beer had to offer. I wouldn't put this on your shirt list.

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.
