Notes: A smooth & balanced fruit ale with sweet peach taste that’s nicely harmonized with lightly bitter black tea flavor. Light, refreshing, sessionable – a perfect summer brew.

Sparkling gold with a fluffy lumpy white head.

Taste is grainy toast with tea and faint orangey peach. It's more like a blonde or pils with fruit added than a shandy. And the medium-full body actually has a semi-bitter grassy semi-dry finish.

I made a foray out to The Beer & Beverage Shoppe the other day & while I did not come away with as much beer as on my previous visit, I did manage to find some new stuff as well as getting the ones that I had specifically gone to purchase. This was one of the unexpected ones.

From the Bottle: "Brewed with Sweet Peach and Black Tea".

Having Pop!ped the cap, now it was time for a slow, gentle C-Line pour. This resulted in two-plus fingers of dense, foamy, rocky, eggshell-white head with reasonable retention, leaving decent lacing in its wake. Color was solid Amber (SRM = > 7, < 9) with NE-quality clarity. Nose was redolent with peaches! Mmm. Mouthfeel was medium, but big for such a low-ABV beer. The taste was very peachy with a light milky flavor, like peaches 'n' cream ice cream. Wow! It was not overly sweet, though, which was a pleasant surprise. Instead, it was more like peach preserves with a cream flavor. It was on the finish that I tasted the tea & it made me realize that this would be a great beer on a hot, humid Summer's day. Turkey Hill Dairy & Mini Markets makes & sells a Peach Tea as well as a Black Tea, but not a Peach Black Tea & I may be inspired to try a blend on my own. It is not what I would consider an every day beer, but under the right circumstances, this would be quite tasty.

The peach comes through without being too sweet or syrupy. Crisp,dry,and light so it goes down easily. I believe it was the black tea that left the usuall dry,bitter,and earthy aftertaste that made this not work for me. Minus the tea it would probably have been a better beer for my taste buds. Still have it a decent review because it was well made with a good taste,just not to my tastes

This beer pours yellow with a healthy hazy and a stream of bubbles to sport a thin white head that falls fast. In a more demure light it has the color of the ripe peach. Nose is dynamic! Lots of peach. It's though youa re holding it in your hand. Peach fuzz and little skin, the part of the pit that has all the red stuff as you eat it. Crisp. not overly ripe, and earthy bold black tea that gives the scent of berries. Hops are a light cool herbal . it's as though they whimsically added the leaves at the top of a stem onto a perfect peach. The malt is a nice cracker. A bit hearty. The beer drinks perfectly. The malt envelops the palate creamy crisp and with enough weight to bring your attention to how much flavor there is from the fruit but no sugary feeling or flavors. Light crisp peach and lots of earth and the black tea brings dryness. So that the beer finishes with the malt round and with plenty of crackery flavor that tickles the palate as it goes to the finish with a light flourish from both the tea and hops bitter. A faint sweetness and all that flavor end it. Expert!
