Big thanks to Randy for passing along this rarity, bottle #370.

We've got a gusher! As I poured it into the glass, the head was at least 4 inches and larger than the amount of beer. The color is a slightly deep hazy amber and the head takes forever to dissipate and leaves very good lacing.

I wouldn't have needed to see the bottle to know there is a ton of peaches in this bad boy as I could smell them across the room. There is hint of the alcohol which burns the nose slightly as well as some sweet malts in the background.

The taste has a deeper, more sugary sweetness than the aroma with the peaches mixing with the dark caramel malts and maybe even some molasses. There is a bit of the lactose creaminess in the finish but the peaches are certainly the most evident flavor.

The mouthfeel is highly carbonated and medium bodied with a lingering fruity sweetness in the finish.

I feel like a broken record saying I'm impressed by the creativity of the Shorts folks, but it almost goes without saying. This is a very sweet beer and that may linger the drinkability a little bit, but the flavors are big and meld together well.

A huge thanks goes out to my man Derek for this beer. I've been eying this beer up for two years and finally got to try it! Much appreciated!

A: Pours a hazy brick orange with a large, creamy and frothy orange tinted head. The head was rather large in the glass with an aggressive pour. Two glasses yielded a two finger head, the other yielded a four finger head.

S: The smell was absolute bliss with sweet, peach jam/jelly, fresh peach puree, candied peaches with sugar, and a nice caramel/toffee back. The smell was like no other beer I have encountered and was delightful.

T: One of the most interesting and different beers I have ever had. Sweet peach jelly, candied/dried peaches and a great caramel back. On the end some alcohol creeps through but doesn't distract from the amazing flavors of the beer.

M/D: The carbonation I thought was a touch high, but by no means displeasing. The flavors are so strong, unique and fruity that I drank this slow and cherished it. I think this would be just as good, if not better in a few years.

Thanks again Derek!

Big thanks to OHLRangers.

A: Pours a nice light amberish hue with a light white head.

S: Peach, peach, and more peach. Very peachy with subtle notes of fresh cream. Light wheat notes, a touch of tart.

T: Very much peach mostly sweet, but there is a very subtle tart element in the taste as well. Dried apricots make an appearence with a nice milky creamy quality. Fruity, malty, creamy, good!

M: Rather light to be honest, sort of snappy carbonation.

D: Not bad, I really liked this one.

poured from a bottle I picked up on summer trip to upper Michigan.
A--beautiful orange glow with decent head that settled into a delicate lace.

S--peaches of course, but not overwhelmingly so.

T--dominant peach taste right away slightly tart, hint of creme and sweetness become apparent just before tart reclaims the aftertaste.

M--clean and astringent

D--regret I only grabbed two of these, but he has so many great beers I had to excercise restraint. This is a great desert beer or evening drink on the patio in summer.

Bottle dated 8/20.12. Thanks to Adam for this one!

A - Medium yellow/orange in colour with some darker amber hues in the middle. A small layer of white head formed and immediately disappeared.

S - Peach is present up front without being overwhelming. Some other citrus notes are present as well, specifically grapefruit. Bready malts are present in the background with lighter caramel aromas.

T - Peach up front that is definitely front and centre without being over the top. The sweetness from the lactose sugar is present next, followed by lighter bready malt notes. Not overly sweet or overly peach-y. The flavours come together very well. ABV is slightly warming at times but overall is exceptionally well hidden.

M - Medium body. Creamy. Light carbonation.

Short's peaches and cream pours a hazy orange colored body with a dirty white head. The head is thick and the retention is substantial. Lots of lacing left behind on the glass.

Great aroma; I spent a good bit of time sniffing this one before I started to drink it. Fresh peaches mix with something reminiscent of a peaches and cream candy. The background keeps things interesting with just a bit of tartness from lactose.

The flavor starts with fresh peaches, which once again is followed by a flavor that is reminiscent of a peaches and cream candy. Amidst the peach flavors, a solid amount of lactose tartness is noticeable, but it definitely is in a complementary role. Next comes just a hint of woody flavors, and the finish has a substantial amount of pale malts.

The body of this beer is smooth and creamy, but I hesitate just short of calling it full bodied.

There is no trace of alcohol in this beer, not even around the edges or in the finish. I was pretty surprised by the size of the ABV actually. This beer is both unique and tasty.
