Little head and only a couple of minute spots for lace. The liquid is a cloudy orange. Lots of yeast chunks at the bottom of the glass.

Pleasant, fresh cut peach aroma.

Peach is upfront and center on this beer. It's sweet with a children's aspirin like flavor. The finish has some bitterness come out. Yet, the aftertaste is short. Elevated carbonation with a moderate body. It's more refreshing than most and the combination of flavors seem to work decently. Later in the taste, I get a touch of cream.

From the bottle, it pours a hazy, lightly orangey amber with a small head. Peach is definitely in the nose. The taste is a bit sharp with the "mean peach" coming through. Interesting.

A fruit flavored beer for the non fruit flavored beer fan. Small brewery in South Carolina this beer is made with local South Carolina peaches (South Carolina actually produces more peaches than Georgia). Wheat style beer with a slight peach aroma. Peach only comes through in the aftertaste. Very refreshing especially in warm weather. Well worth a try, started as a seasonal but due to its popularity it is now brewed year round.

12 oz bottle poured into a Savor snifter.

Pours a cloud orange color with a full finger of sticky foam that recedes slowly. Aroma is bangin' - a nice sweet peach smell that doesn't smell artificial. Flavor is quite sweet with a vanilla like sweetness as well as peach. Smells better than it tastes, unfortunately. I feel this is a little too heavy bodied - needs to be dried out a little more.

I really do enjoy the peach flavor a lot. Too much sweetness keeps it as a good, but not great beer.

New to fruit based beers, this one delivers what it says in its name, while not overwhelming me with sweet flavor or too much peach. Its flavor is right on and has become a staple. It doesn't hurt that I live 15 minutes from the brewery either.
