Reviewed from notes dated 8-3-09.

Head isn't a problem for this beer as four fingers of biscuity tan fluff is easily achieved. Fades slowly and turns rocky leaving waves and dots of lace. Body is a murky copper color. Nose brings with it zesty yet creamy peach notes that is attractive without being ridiculous. The smell really is very nice. The first thing you get with this one is that initial bite of peach with slightly tart peach skin and a dry fruit feel. Peaches continue to dance across the tongue when they are joined with a soft hop fel that adds just the right amount of balance. Creaminess does start to develop as the beer warms bit, it becomes almost sweet bread like on the mouthfeel. Mouthfeel is really big. This is a super drinkable beer, oh so fresh and unique. Shorts shows again what a cool, fun thing beer can be.

Not digging it. Too sweet, minimal head and a bit disappointing overall.

This was just too sticky sweet for my tastes. I'm OK with many of Short's "unique" beers and a number of their fruit beers, but not this.

Wish Short's had this around more often! Just a killer Fruity ABV bomb!

Interesting beer. Has a sweet peachy flavor to it. Nice smell and mouthfeel as well.
