Very clear, light appearance. No head. Smell and taste both have an artificial peach flavor. It's not over the top, but it's not pleasant. Just not a fan of this beer.

I was surprised to have a beer that nailed the P E A C H flavor. Yum! I am a fan of fruit beers, but not ciders so much. I prefer the beer/yeasty taste over a sweeter alcoholic beverage. I recommend that you try it (I found it at whole foods in oakland), and I would love to find this on draft some time soon. Cheers for a five buck price!

Poured a 22 oz bottle into FFF Teku glass.

The beer pours very light and almost transparent. It has the absolute hue of peach almost down to Crayola accuracy. The smell is relatively pleasant with light peach notes and some bready qualities. It takes a good 3-4 sips to start getting the level of peach flavor that I expected. Much less peach than say Wheach by O'Fallon. It's very easy drinking and effervescent which helps mask the limited flavor of the beer. It's a pretty thin and light beer. If you're a peach fan, then it's worth a shot. Wheach and the Peach Berlinerweisse by Perennial were far superior to this offering. I'd rather be smacked in the face with peach.

Pours a slightly murky light orange with a foamy bone colored head that settles to a thick cap on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt and some mild peach and apricot aromas. Taste is much the same with a distinct buttery flavor on the finish. This beer has a high level of carbonation with a crisp and prickly mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty poor beer that seems to be suffering from some sort of infection issue with the buttery flavor and high carbonation level.

Pleasant light wheat beer taste, which is to say it's inoffensive and doesn't interfere with the peach flavor. Great aroma of ripe peaches.

Attractive light amber in the Duvel tulip. Nice foam with plenty of spritz in the mouth. Very light bodied and a thoroughly refreshing style. I think the hoppy bitterness is a little more bold than it needed to be. Less sweet than some other fruit beers, notably the much stronger-flavored Pyramid apricot.

Light as this is, it's a perfectly quaffable summer beer. The endless aromatics are nice, and it has a watery character that is about as thirst-quenching as you could want. From the 22 oz bottle bought at Total Wine, which has quite an array of Marin brews.

A: Very clear darker yellow color with 1-finger head. Head stays throughout the beer, but doesn't leave lacing.

S: At first a bit of funk, but then a syrupy peach flavor comes through with a bit of malt. Not much aroma to speak of.

T: Has a bready flavor with some peach that isn't quite as syrupy as the aroma would suggest. Again, not much to speak of.

M: I enjoy the mouthfeel, somewhat oily and coats the tongue, has a good amount of carbonation. Lingering finish that is pretty good.

O: Overall, I'm okay with this beer, but I don't think I need to try it again. I'm sure some will like it more than me and some will like it less.

Woo Hoo!!! The final 100 days are upon me....after tonight, of course...

Pours a murky and sedimentary straw-lemon color. Nary a head upon this, no real lacing. Carbonation is light to medium but hard to discern amidst the murk. Odd...Aromas are peachy keen. That is to say it's smells like peaches - fresh peaches, mind you. I also get a floral note, like roses, and it's strong. Maybe also a hint of Bubble Yum...So far, more off than on...Flavor is a strange, detergent like mix of sharp malt tang, peach hints and, as I said, detergent. Kind of gross, in a way. It's got a distinct quality similar to American (read that Widmer) Hefeweizens...The finish is thin and washy, and carries some of the peach with it. This is to beer what wine bottle size wine coolers are to wine. It really seems to be targetting non-beer drinkers, and it probably treats them right. Me, however, nope. Price point is $4.49/bomber and ABV is 5%. Not worth trying unless you don't really like beer.

What I like most: Um, maybe the refreshing nature of the beer.

What I like least: The detergent like flavor profile.

BVerdict: Not good beer. Avoid.

It 100 beers so it's time to drink a fruit beer without getting shit from my friends. If I lived in a cave, i would drink these everyday. This has a balanced peach taste that doesn't over-run the beer, but adds big to the drinkability. The Peach isn't fruit loop sweeet that makes you cringe, just balanced a clean. Good beer, highly recommended, now back to some tough guy IPA's with the boys.

A: poured a pineapple yellow with light orange highlights with a very thin head that had almost no lacing on the glass.

S: surprisingly there is a nice peach aroma that has grainy and slight malty notes; not too much going on here.

T: the peach flavor is actually pretty decent that meshes quite well with the malts and slight grains that do come thru.

M: light body with almost no carbonation that has a peachy slight malt and grainy finish.

D: very drinkable beer that is not too sweet at all and is really refreshing and crisp.
