22oz bomber poured into a Bruery tulip glass. Pours a hazy golden color with a bubbly head that leaves a hint of lacing. Aroma is peach, oak and some hint of spice. Taste is peach spice, like a peach cobbler, oak and a slight alcohol burn. This almost behaves like a cider but more complex.

**Definitely let it warm up. Changes the flavors considerably. Good looking golden color with a thin white foam. Aroma is light malt, the chardonnay is there, some fruity hops and fait peach but you have to look for it. Taste is pleasantly fruity. The wine is noticeable also. The malt comes through along with some hop in the finish. Maybe a little alcohol. Overall outstanding.

Pours a golden yellow color with a very healthy white foam head. Has an aroma of citrus, sweet peach, and honey. Taste is sweet fruit and some bourbon/oak. Has a full body feel and goes down smooth. The sweetness is dangerous, because you can feel the 10+% if you drink this too fast. Has a nice warming sensation in the belly. Another solid effort from Epic.

Bottle shared at Proof. Very faint and light aroma of canned peaches, yeast, citrus with light malt. Flavor is similar, yet flavors aren't blending too well. Meh.

Yellowish pour white head. Some peach syrup flavor with banana and some oak. Medium body medium carbonation. Decent stuff.

On tap at Brouwers cafe. Pours a clear golden orange color with a medium white head that leaves light lacing. Smells of canned peach juice, the wood from the barrels it was aged in and slight chardonnay. Tastes of the same things in the smell. Mouthfeel is medium and slightly slick with decent carbonation. Not bad but I wish the peach flavor was slightly better. The wine barrel aging made it more unique. I prefer the raspberry version to this one.

Tap at hops and pie. Clear gold with a thin, frothy white head that lasts on the sides. Aromas of citrus, grape, peach, booze, and light spice. Flavor is the same. Medium bodied, lingering fruit.

Fruity aroma, peach (obviously) taste. Overall moderately sweet with clean finish. Nice aged fruity drink.

Draught @ Brouwer’s Café:   Fiery golden, moderate foamy white head, fairly nice lacing.   Sweet syrupy nose, some canned peach aroma, but compared to Raspberries its not as pronounced.   Seems to have a smidgen of alcohol too   Heavy fruitness up front, a bit dank/sweaty, very much like that syrup you get in cans of fruit cocktail.   Not a bright peach that you might find in a sour, but instead a heavy syrupy almost over the top example.   Its just shy of being cloying, but does feel rather heavy.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Strong bready and mealy notes on the finish, with a strong yet dull peach flavor profile.   Sweet and syrupy, it has the added fruits of fruit cocktail going for it.   Tiz okay, hard to finish in large doses.   Prefer the Raspberry example over this one.

Fritz123 (783) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - JAN 30, 2014
Bottle from somewhere in Las Vegas. Drank at Syb Pig bottle share. Small snifter. Pours a very light, champagne looking beer with a thick head. Aroma of peaches, citrus, bread, and tart yeasts. The taste was a little weaker than expecting but the peaches and some tartness came through. The Belgian Yeasts were also prevalent. Not bad. Light body, easy to drink.
