A: Pours a hazy bright orange hue with a tall cream colored head. Nice retention and some leggy lace. S: Wonderful aromas of dried peaches, candy sugar, and mild tropical fruit. T: Very much like the aroma. Lots of dried peaches. Fruity yet slightly earthy. Nice sugary sweetness with a dash of citrus hops. M: Medium in body, smooth, creamy. D: Damn good, one of my favorite recent CCB treatments.

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.

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 CCBs coolest treatments. Very good.

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 21, 2010
Growler from CCB. Pours a dark golden to amber color with frothy white head. Aroma is sweet and floral with notes of peach, booze, apricots, citrus, grains, light floral hops, light funk. Flavor is also sweet and floral with notes of peach, booze, fresh fruit, sweet malt, light floral esters. The peach really mutes the hops in this one. Medium body with a fruity and light floral hop finish.

Ibrew2or3 (7046) - 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.

dchmela (2667) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 12, 2010
Growler from the brewery. Pours a hazy orange with a thin white head. Aroma is orange candy, peach aroma, some hop bite. Creamy malt body, spicy hops and fresh peach taste. This one works really well if you let it warm a little. Awesome.

HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 28, 2010
Tap @ CCB. Pour a clear medium orange-amber color, honey like with an average sized egg shell head. The nose is malty and slightly floral with notes of bread, honey, citrus, peach, and apricot, and light vanilla. Body is pretty full with a smooth, creamy mouth feel. Flavor is mostly sweet with big notes of caramel and honey with lesser notes of peach and apricott there is a decent amount of citric hop bitterness but I think the added sweetness of the peach cancels out some of the balance. Finishes sweet.

Growler, thanks to dchmela. Great aroma of peaches and cream. Flavor is mostly peach with a huge backbone of bitter hops and grain. Nice blend.
