hopscotch (9113) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - FEB 19, 2010
Growler… Hazy golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. Excellent retention. Musky, lightly fruity aroma. Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and relaxed carbonation. Big and malty, but is hopped so heavily that it slants way over toward the bitter side of balance. Heavy handed hopping isn’t really what I’m looking for in a cream ale or double cream ale. Lengthy, bittersweet finish… the bitterness lingers on and on. I didn’t pick up on a lot of fruit from this one. Growler courtesy of dchmela!

Ibrew2or3 (6851) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 26, 2010
Pours up deep gold with white head. The aroma has sweet tropical, OK, peach fruitiness rolling into rich malts and rich graininess as well as a sweet background of creamed corn. The taste is smooth on the palate bringing up notes of modest peach like fruity sweetness and then quickly moving into sweet grainy and malty goodness backed up by a firm smooth layer of sweet creamed corn. Pretty nice treatment that compliments and does not get in the way of the base goodness.

sebletitje (6641) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 21, 2011
Entering old-rates, Fruit in the Room Event. Même revue que sa version originale avec de la pêche en plus, donnant ce profile doux et un peu râper de la peau de pêche. Reste agréable, tangy et tropical avec un beau profile houblonné. Dommage pour l’alcool qui est un peu trop en avant.

TomDecapolis (4473) - Milton, Delaware, USA - FEB 15, 2010
Tap at Cigar City. Pours a light hazy golden orange with a smaller creamy off white head that laced. Aroma of tropical fruits, grain, nice hop touch. Flavor of the same. So smooth and deceptive. Basically just like the regular batch #69 except the peach really came through, especially in aroma.

markwise (4467) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 15, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2010 Thanks blazer06 for the share. Pours hazy yellow-orange with a white head. Nose is peaches, sugar, malt, bread, and grains. Flavor is similar with peach into the finish. Their peach treatments are some of CCB’s coolest treatments. Very good.

ChainGangGuy (4366) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 5, 2011
Appearance: Slips out of the modestly-sized growler a clouded, orange-hued body with a splotchy, white head. Smell: Aroma smelling of cereal grains, subtle floral accents, sugary-sweet peach nectar, and rippling booze. Taste: Sweet, lightly grainy maltiness with a trace of carefully selected corn kernels. Then, a jolt of peach schnapps. Flutter of pale malted barley. Spicy, earthy hops with a touch of bitterness. Modest peach taste on the back end, as the sweetness and alcohol warmth takes over. Finishes about the same, a bit syrupy. Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Bemusing enough for a reasonably-sized glassful, but the pendulum pounding back and forth between the heavy sweetness and alcoholic heat can only be charming for so long.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 3, 2010
Growler, courtesy dchmela. Pours a lightly hazy, medium golden-orange to amber color. A thin film of smooth beige foam sits at the head. Minimal, wet spotting marks the glass. The nose is very much like the base beer, showing notes of flaked oats, creamed corn, and clean cereal malts, though this version sports a light whiff of fresh, floral peach. Flavors show more cereal sweetness, tempered by soft and creamy oat and corn notes, with a touch of toasty breadiness, popped corn, and a little peppercorn hop spice. Hints of peach and banana lend fruitiness, though it’s thankfully not all that prominent. Medium bodied and smooth, the palate seems a little too alcoholic and perhaps a little cloying on the finish. Decent brew. Not really my thing.

32oz growler, courtesy of wavers1. Thanks, Baker! Pours a slightly hazy, honey-orange color; fine-bubbled, off-white head with patchy lacing. A load of peaches in the aroma: floral, fruity, and intense amounts of peach and apricot fruitiness; clean character underneath, but the fruit character is very sweet and syrupy; pleasant, like fruit cocktail. Medium-full body: lots of fruity sweetness; relaxed carbonation, some heavy viscosity and creaminess; a whole lot of peach and apricot notes, lots of that fluffy, cream-ale character with a reasonably yeast character with some light fruitiness; the peach and apricot syrupy notes are the most present here; very sweet, syrupy, and a bit much altogether; loads of sweetness here, with hints of alcohol and slightly boozy warmth; a load of fruity sweetness here. Solid stuff, but very fruity without much beyond the syrup character. Long, long finish: lots of that cream ale yeast character, peach syrup, and hints of a basic yeast character; balanced, but the syrupy character is a bit much throughout.
