Veyr nice, the aroma is of flowers, I thought it was going to be a bitte,r but then I had a taste when I tried it, of fruits.

bhensonb (11980) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 9, 2006
Light peach aroma. The head quickly disipated. Light coppery amber color. Light flavor of peaches, followed by malt and a balancing bitterness. Fruit seemed to last through the finish.

thewolf (11338) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2006
Bottle. Clear amber colour with limited head. Nice aromas of peach, melon and malts. Medium body. No bitterness but a touch citric at the end. Not enough taste compared to the great aromas. It ends on a touch of a burnt feel.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2006
50 cl bottle. No yeast at the bottom. Amber colour with a frothy white head. Amazing aroma of peach and some melon. Also flavour of melon with a bitter and dry finish. Reminds me of a fruit beer.

nakhoda (16) - ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2006
Half litre bottle. Bright, short-lasting head, sits well on the tongue but of course its the powerful peachy floral aroma that characterizes this beer. The fruity taste tends to raspberry and peardrop but it holds a hoppy bite. It would be interesting to know the history of that extract of peach blossom but in my blissful ignorance I’ll call this a very pleasant summer drink.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 21, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2006 Strong peach and citrus, floral aroma. Clear, deep golden coloured body is topped by a decent, fine bubbled, white head that lasts well and leaves some lacing. Peachy fruitiness blends with toasted malt flavours and moderate bitterness. Sweetness in the aftertaste is long lasting. Medium-light body with lively if somewhat sharp carbonation. Pint glass. Cellar temperature. Bottle (Feniton Spar).

dj (526) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2006
Bottle, 500ml. A clear, light orange colour pour with an average-sized lasting head. Strong aromas of sweet orange. Some more orange in the taste along with peach, a little hoppiness and a touch of dough. Somewhat sweet with some acidity in the finish. Short duration. Light-bodied, average carbonation. Nice enough, but not something I’d buy again.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - MAY 4, 2006
Bottle: I was very confused about the strong peach aroma I encountered, until reading the decription here! Copper in colour with fine carbonation and small but lasting white head. Very strong peach aroma dominates, but is not offputting. Rather dull, innoffensive balanced flavour. Simple malts, long bitter though not too dry finish. A touch of peach and metal shavings in the aftertaste. Looks great, smells unique, but unfortunately doesn’t taste very great.

Bottle. White lasting head. Clear amber body. Apple/pear aroma and flavor.

StueyD (1346) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2006
A dark amber colour and a weak white head. A strong and distintive fruity nose of peaches and melon, and roses. The taste is again of the fruitiness of the aroma, the peachy floral fruitiness is apparent, but there is an underlying bitterness. The finish is smooth and somewhat sweet on the mouth. (Bottle).
