A: Pour a crystal clear golder yellow. White head that fades quick. Really no head retention on this one, and lacing is minimal.

S: Peaches. Some slight bread and malty notes.

T: From the smell you would think the peach character on this would be very present in the taste, its actually not so. The is a peachy presence but it is in the background. This beer is rather tart and almost reminds me of a dry peach cider if that makes sense. Really nice.

M: Heavy carbonation. Crisp and refreshing. Definitely a decent summertime drinker.

O: This beer is pretty odd, but if you enjoy fruitier dry beers this one is definitely worth a shot. I will be purchasing more.
