Bottle shared much thanks to Ed. Pours a moderate to darker golden color with a small off white head. Aroma is of sweet malts, fruity pineapple, coconut, yeast. Taste is of light fruity sweetness, sugary coconut, some yeasty notes, mild alcohol. Unique.

dogfishho (598) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - SEP 3, 2013
Pours an orange gold color with a nice bright white head. The aroma is a tad funky, but clearly influenced by the peaches and a hint of the oak chips from the aging. On the palate, there’s a great mix of sweetness, countered by a mild tartness from the fruit and on the end, there’s a fattiness that is clearly reminiscent of the coconut. Weird beer, but eminently drinkable and enjoyable.

AirForceHops (3295) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Draft @ Amesbury Ale House. Amber color with solid lace. Nose is an awesome combination of grapefruit, mango and Belgian yeast. Taste is all fruit with a big coconut flavor in the finish. Passion fruit and mango in the main body with a nice malt character. The ABV is noticeable only from the warmth after the sip. The texture is slick and juicy. Packed with tropical fruit flavors. Impressive brew. Very tasty.

arminjewell (6293) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Pour out of 750 mL bottle, hazy orange pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of oak, caramel, toffee, sweet white fruits with peach, touch of vanilla, hints of coconut but pretty hidden. Taste is a mix of white fruit, touch of oak, slight earth, peach, touch of vanilla, finishing fairly sweet, slightly dry. Pretty nice, but the coconut is pretty hidden.

thornecb (4459) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Pours gold into a tulip. Bright white head with medium retention recedes leaving spider lacing. Peach and coconut aromas. Soft with band aids and peach upfront turning to earth bitter husks in the lasting, mildly coconut finish.

Bottle shared by oRos. Pours orange copper with a tiny beige head and a fruity aroma. There is a carbonated slightly sour peach flavor with a long oaky finish that sticks to the palate.
