3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear gently browned yellow amber with a thin whit head. Peaches! Big roast peaches. Smells like a nice peach cobbler and a fresh peach cracked in half. Medium body, more sweet fresh peach flavors with a little bit of malt behind it. Finishes, again, peachy. Probably the most peach tasting peach beer I’ve had (though maybe that’s because I don’t think New Glarus has one). Does strike me as with this much peach it’s quite possibly artificial as it just has so much of that freshly split peach smell to it that it makes me skeptical. Nothing ever smells that much like what it’s supposed to be without some sort of nefarious dealings with underworld creatures… or a vial of artificial flavoring. Quite nice though either way.
