Golden orange color, with a good head that fades slowly, leaving a correct lace. Intense aroma of peaches, with oranges and spices, I can't say for sure which ones. Medium body and carbonation. Silky palate. Taste of peaches, peach liquor, oranges, spices, some acidity and bitterness. Really good.

This tastes and smells very intensely of a freshly cut open peach. There is a substantial feel to it sort of like a wheat beer, but not a lot comes through here except fresh peach, and in this case that's a very good thing.

This is the most peach forward beer I've yet encountered. It is dangerous because it comes through so smoothly, as the booze is really well balanced. There are so many bad versions of beers that try to add peach, this is definitely a standard bearer.

I don't know why the low score as this is pretty tasty brew. Not great, but certainly serviceable. The Lambic seems to have toned down the sweetness nicely as while this is a sweeter beer, it's not overly so.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a lightly hazy orange amber with a one finger off-white head with great retention and thick lacing. Aroma dominated by peach juice with a hint of lemon citrus, somewhat spicy; light bready malt. Flavor follows with lightly sweet/tart peach and apricot with lemon and orange citrus, finishes mildly tart with a suggestion of citrus hops. A mild sweet malt supports the fruit flavors. Medium bodied with active carbonation. A nicely made peach infused ale with a great balance between sweet and tart. The malt provides little flavor, but supports the peach and stone fruit flavors well.There is a tasty lemon rind/peach flavor in the finish which was particularly inviting. Fruit ales are not a style I usually seek out, but this one I will try again. ABV well covered.

Lucid orange amber, mostly clear, topped with fine, fluffy, uniform off white head of moderate retention. Peaches, not too sweet. Bit of malt. Some booze perhaps. That's just the aroma. Peaches and assorted fruit throughout on the palate, but doesn't sweeten or sour until carbonation has fizzed up and nearly died back down again, a process which can be accelerated by sloshing it around one's mouth. Then, it's incredibly sweet, but more than tart enough — aided by a smattering of malt and yeast influence — to keep one from gagging. Leans toward dark fruit in the back. I suspect that is partly the alcohol's doing. Medium bodied, lots of sudsy carbonation. Crisp, mildly warm, wet finish. Would definitely drink again. Not sure if I should hoard my other three or try to woo my friends who think beer is of the devil.

Poured from bottle into a chalice glass

Appearance – The beer pours a light hazy orange color with a billowy white head of white foam. The head has a fantastic level of retention, very slowly fading over time to leave a good sum of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is quite large of a peach smell mixed with some other fruits of an apricot and pear. Along with these aromas comes a rather strong smell of a yeasty smell with lots of grass, hay, and a light sour green apple smell. Overall it has a rather fruity sweet aroma.

Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter peach flavor mixed with a little bit of funky green apple taste. As the taste moves on other fruit flavors of apricot and peach join the tongue along with an increase in the tart a bit. All the while a little bit of a yeasty and grassy taste develops on the tongue with a rather stronger showing of a lemon flavor coming as well. With some earthy tastes and a bit of hay coming to the tongue at the end, one is left with a sweet peachy and slightly funked flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – For an 8.5 % brew the body of the beer is on the slightly thinner side with a carbonation level that is rather high. For the fruity and crisp nature of the beer along with the lighter sour and tart flavors, the feel is fantastic and makes for a very refreshing and flavorful feel overall.

Overall – This was a quite tasty and far too easy to drink fruit brew at 8.5 % abv. A nice peach flavored brew that was never too over the top and which has a great presence of fruit, sour, yeast, and grass/hay.
