Hazy orange color. Aroma is peach and grainy maly. Flavor is some metalic notes with some bitterness and some peach. Light body. Crisp finish with a wierd lingering metal flavor. Without the metal it would be much better.

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 5, 2007
Transparent, yellow color. Smell of peach, malt, oranges, strawberies, and some hops. Taste of peaches, honey, hops, light malt, grass and a nice bitterness. I am very surpised how good this goes down. After a little bit more warmong up, I can also taste some pine and orange peal. I got a little of a soapy aftertaste at the end. I will have some more in summer.

hopdog (9189) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2006
12oz bottle. Opened to a loud pssst and poured witha huge off white head. Settled into a medium orange / amber color. Aromas of fresh peaches. Not artificial (as I close my eyes and smell, I can picture holding a fresh peach). I donít normally like peaches, but I can safely say this one smelled good. Tastes of peaches (not as strong as the aroma). Started out lighlty sweet and ended lightly sour. Thinner body and somewhat over carbonated (as evident with the way it opened).

chimpscampee (566) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 29, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2007 Not too sweet like most belgian ales using lots of fruit. Wonderfully dry, bitter, hopped pale ale with peach flavor that is just right balance-- strong but not overwhelming the pale ale taste. Maybe the pits and skin give it that nice bitterness. Drink this one chilled. Frothy head. Can quench thirst but also as a sipper. Sometimes the first chilly smell and sip gives me a pleasant fleeting head rush that is hard to describe. Great change of pace. Classic lawnmowing brew. Perhaps too much carbonation. Brenan chain in Wisconsin may be only place to get it.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 6, 2006
Mostly translucent and fiery gold in color with a foamy, tight-packed tan head. Peach juice squeezed from the can leaps at the sinuses, pursued by dried apricot pieces that bring me back to toddler years, along with some sugary nectarine juice with peach jolly ranchers slowly diffusing. Peaches (imagine that) emasculate the flavor as expected, yet they inhibit a husky quality, spiffed by a curt bitter element thatís immediately pinned to the roof of the mouth. Substantive cohabitation is completely comprised of a musky pils quality. Peaches wrapped in tamale husks and faded grass stains curtail on the coattails. The formula works, save the hop profile, but itís best to not throw caution in the wind and leave this within a childís arm reach.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 30, 2005
Bottle purchased at Brennanís. Cloudy wit-like yellow body with a big fluffly white head. Smells just like ripe peaches with a touch of mandarin orange tartness thrown in. Good flavor - lightly malted blonde ale base with the less-sweet elements of peach on top - skin and the woody pit. Iím sure there werenít any pits in their peach extract but thatís what I taste. I appreciate how itís not overly-sweet which makes for a refreshing, crisp beer. Nice job!

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - NOV 2, 2005
12 oz bottle. What a surprise that Iím only the third reviewer of this Cali beer, and the other two are in Wisconsin! Immense fluffy, bubbly white head topping an almost clear peach-juice body....very fresh, fruity nose with hints of biscuit underneath and a mild grassiness, clean and nice...the body is quite interesting, sweet peachy juice interacting with a fair amount of strong sprucy hoppiness, very zesty towards the finish, touch of dryness in the center really crushes the potentially syrupy fruitiness at the finish...solid medium-full body. Not incredibly complex, but vastly better than the average in the style, with no real faults.

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 25, 2004
Hereís a surprise! Not just an insipid American wheat flavored with extract, as Iíve come to expect. This is actually a reasonably hopped pale ale with a nice sweet and slightly tart peach fuitiness. Very perfumey peach aroma. I might actually buy this again! The single I bought this time around gushed, but was not infected. Lightly sedimented.

Near amber color with a moderate cream colored head. Initial sweet peach aroma frightens me. I continue and find hops swimming with these peaches in a mild malt sea. Quite pleasant. Actually a dry start with a light toffee and caramel sweetness coupled with a mild floral hops flavor. Finish has a mild peach flavor with a light peach pit bite. Actually much better than I expected.
