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 (8626) - East Lansing, Michigan, 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.

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.

Bottle from capitol beer. Pours light gold with not much of a white head. Lots of lacing on glass. Taste reminds me of tea with a peach

Crispy34 (465) - Texas, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Draft. Peaches on the nose. Appearance is a murky golden. Taste is, honest to God, like an orange flavored tootsie pop before you get to the center in the best way. Really different, and i like it. Palate is really sweet. Overall, a different beer in a good way. Would buy a bottle to hold on to. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap @ Beachwood BBQ. Amber pour with a nice big white head. Nose is quite fruity. Nice peach, some hints of coconut, pear, and pineapple. Light alcohol, oak, and caramel malt. Flavor is a bit on the sweet side. Caramel, peach, and pineapple. Light tartness of tropical fruit, some oak, straw, and alcohol.
