downender (7626) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2007
Golden coloured with a lacy white head. Aroma was of fruits like peaches, apricots and melon. The flavour was of peach and not much else, although this wasn’t overpowering like the ginger in Blandford Fly. Alright as a summer drink.

Maria (10205) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2007
It’s a golden beer with a nice head. The peach is very dominating in both aroma and flavour. towards the end I also find notes of flower and melon and a very light bitterness. Peach is the last impression.

boltonmark (9) - Uppingham, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2007 does not count
The overwhelming flavour of peach was a bit too much for me. Slightly biiter but a malty taste comes through eventually.

pivnizub (9861) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAR 9, 2007
Bottle: Deep golden coloured, smaller foamy head; strong fruity nose - peaches and maracuja - with a very small hoppiness; bitter-sweet flavour; melons in the fruity, sweetish-bitter finish. A very unusual Ale, but refreshing...........

cgarvieuk (19711) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 2, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2007 Ruby cloloured . very hoppy nose, a full bitter hop, with lots of floral notes in the flavour. Tk 2 Bottle at home ... amber coloured ... floral hop peachy nose ... fruity front lots of bitterness ... fruity dry bitter linger. I used to really like this but would find it hard going 3.5->3.1

Pale copper colour with fruilt apricot / peach aroma. Light hops, but fruit flavour makes this quite sweet. Too fruity for me.

schuimkroaat (427) - Leuven, BELGIUM - FEB 23, 2007
50 cl bottle, bottled / ’bbe’ ? Clear copper, fluffy head lacing moderately. Overwhelming aroma of peach syrup and, after I have read the label, yes, melon also. The taste begins with the same fruity sweetness. This evaporates after a short while and leaves aromatic hops pierce through; when this too is finished, a blandish maltiness remains. Well yes, it is better than the Belgians with fruit syrup added - which is not saying much.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2013 Bottled. A dark golden coloured beer with a small tan coloured head. The aroma is far too peachy for its own good. Very sweet nose. The taste also has peach notes as you would expect but there are reasonable bready malts also. Can’t say I’m enamoured. Pretty overpowering really. Score 2.4
Subsequent ratings scored 3.5 and 3.3. Average becomes 3.1

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2007 Clear amber pour. Shockingly peachy snout if you’ve not read the blurb. Head and lace persist a good hour after the pour. Should they get the chance. An aromatic peachiness pairing up perfectly naturally with the house yeast’s natural fruitiness. Crisp hop finish with lingeringly bready afters. English fruit beer to take on the Belgians?? Tasty and well-balanced stuff indeed.
