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

RafaoSSBR (4) - São Caetano do Sul, BRAZIL - JUL 7, 2015 does not count
Dourado forte que lembra mel, levemente turva. Boa formação de espuma e boa persistência. O aroma de pêssego predomina, mas ainda é possível sentir um leve aroma herbal e cítrico. Boa carbonatação, corpo leve para mais, com sabor de malte, levemente adocicado. O sabor do pêssego mais suave fundo herbal e um leve amargor no ceu e no fundo da boca. Aftertaste doce, floral, o pêssego bem suave com um fundo amargo terroso leve que persistem. Leve, refrescante, com bom drinkability.

Tognetta (340) - Campinas, BRAZIL - JUL 6, 2015
Amarela translúcida, espuma de boa formação e persistente. Aroma bem nítido de pêssego, amargor me lembrou um pouco as pilsens checas, com aquele toque de gramínea. Paladar de corpo bem leve, o pêssego ainda continua, mas menos intenso que no aroma, novamente um amargor mais "europeu" de leve intensidade. Aftertaste tem um pouco de remédio, diferente da ultima que provei, mas ainda assim uma boa cerveja considerando sua proposta.

Fast klare dunkel orangegelbe Farbe, ordentliche leicht beige Schaumkrone. Geruch intensiv fruchtig nach Pfirsich, süß, kaum Bier. Geschmack süß, viel Pfirsichsaft, gering herb, kaum malzig.

Quite sweet aroma. Smells and tastes a bit of pineapples. A bit syrupy on the tongue and leaves a deep aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours shiny golden orange. Smells of peach gummy, mirabelle plum and dried apricot. Taste is soft, fresh and a bit watery. Aftertaste is sheer peach.

Finn (4710) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 11, 2015
Flaske 500ml fra Kilpishalli. Gyldenbrun. Lavt skum med litt lacing. Heftig ferskenaroma. Smaken kun fersken. Snodig øl. Ikke helt vellykket - men gjennomført.

Idiosynkrasie (4923) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 22, 2015
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 (346) - 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 (549) - 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!
