Not just a peachy aroma but a peachy and floral taste too. From a bottle it is an amber bronze. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

500ml bottle. Clear, orangey, deep golden colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Artificially fruity aroma, notes of peach and melon. Taste is minimally bitter hoppy, artificial notes of peach, melon, wine gum, low to moderate, minimally sugar sweetness.

redders1974 (172) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2015
UPDATED: APR 22, 2015 Pours golden with small ring of foam smells of peaches tastes of peaches too sweet and artificial e it just tastes of flat peach soda though it might just be me but when I have a beer I want beer with a hint of something not the other way round. Could only manage half before it went down the sink.

AWS9 (527) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - APR 3, 2015
Bottle. Hazy amber nectar appearance. Certainly a distinct peach and melon in the aroma, as advertised! Refreshingly sweet, with the peach prominent in the aftertaste. I "expect" a stickiness given the sweetness, but actually has quite a clean palate. Nice and refreshing!

Cerveja dourada e turva, com espuma baixa, branca e bastante presente. O aroma é surpreendente; o toque de pêssego e frutas frescas é muito perceptível e a impressão é de que se está prestes tomar suco de frutas - não é possível sentir cheiro de malte. O sabor também é surpreendente, com o sabor extremamente forte das frutas utilizadas na produção. Não é uma cerveja equeibrada; é muito doce e não se sente a presença do álcool. Como o aroma promete, lembra um suco de frutas, os que a torna refrescante. O corpo é leve e a drinkability ótima. Falta vigor ao aftertaste é um pouco mais de amargor seria bem vindo. Com certeza uma cerveja especial e boa para momentos específicos. Bastante refrescante e boa para ser apreciada sem alimentos para que se possa apreciar seu caráter diferenciado.

eastkenttom (77) - herne bay, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2015
UPDATED: APR 21, 2015 Has some dryness and a big taste of peach at first. Not keen on the mega peachy aroma however. It?s ok. Dry in the finish. Not offensive but smell is odd and slightly offputting. Glad I finally tried it though. 3/5.

The_Osprey (2845) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2015
500ml bottle, BB Dec 2015 ,recommended by a friend. Clear dark orange, highly sparkling, small white head only endures about 30 seconds. Aroma is very peachy as promised, slight cheesey element, but mostly peach. Body is medium, touch of carbonation, smooth. Taste is thin malt, drying earthy vegetable, touch of lime, metallic. Too metallic in the flavour.

Bottle (Xmas Present) Iíve seen this fairly often and avoided it really, but I donít think Iíll be avoiding it or anything from this Brewery again. On the Aroma, strong, strong Peach, was very skunky once opened too. On the taste, Peach, almost Chemical, Tangerine, light Melon, and Biscuity bitterness. Iím not convinced whether the Peach goes with the Malty Biscuits though...
