Bottle. Pours a hazy golden yellow with thinner white head. Smell is white grapes, citrus, yeast, tangy, crips. Taste is white wine/grapes, subtle spice, yeast, citrus, slightly tart peach, medium sweetness. Decently dry. Really quite nice and highly drinkable for the ABV. No detectable booze.

Bottle pour hazy light gold. Nose slightly tart, some peach, light barrel, some mineral. Taste mix of fruit, tart, umami, and hint of barrel. Lighter spice on finish.

Pale gold color. White foamy ring on top. If you drank a pink of this youíd be sorry. It smells like white oak and white wine barrels and yeast. It tastes like a belgian ale and the peaches are hard to find through all the tinge of the dense yeast and the alcohol. Iím sure its awesome but for reasons I cannot understand. Needless to mention it burns, or warms, depending on your outlook, on the way down. It even finishes dry for all you winos. I think the name is how you behave after drinking this... like a brainless peach. Wait, oh. Did I get that wrong? No.

Opened this bottle, poured into a snifter a peach colored liquid with a soft and off-white head. The head barely covered the surface of my beer. The first sip carries notes of peach, and that pie crust dough. Good beer, the champagne yeast adds a bit and a very high ABV carries it through.

slowrunner77 (3654) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 6, 2014
"this was 11.6ish abv. Too high in my opinion, as the sugary sweetness and thick body of the beer were both distracting. Less fruity and less tart than the Raspberry, which I liked better. Enjoyable, sure, but has big faults and costs too much for an ok diabetes beer."

drjay44 (2648) - Salida, Colorado, USA - SEP 2, 2014
651 ml. bottle. Release #45. SLC #1605. ABV 11.1%. Pours a thin, poorly retained white head over a mildly effervescent, clear, orange amber (SRM 8) body.....nose is cereal, light peach, light vinous hints, light hop spice.....taste is slightly sweet to start, then light peach, slightly woody, pepper, finishing dry, with mild hop bitterness.....mouth feel, light body, alcohol heat present, carbonation high, with creaminess and moderate tingling acid finish. The peach was used with a light hand, as was the barrel. The result is subtle complexity in both aroma and flavor. This beer is quite sneakily dangerous, with the partially hidden, but exquisitely high alcohol content. Think of it as a fruit toned Belgian Golden Strong, although it really is a wood aged fruit beer. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7

A very interesting peach. Pours a super clear yellow. Smells of white wine. Taste has lots of Chardonnay, with a bit of peach at the finish. Had on tap at the brewery.

Tejas (872) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Looks nice but no head is a downer. This is an OK Belgian. Itís fruity although you canít detect which fruit is imparted. Itís suppose to be peaches but I couldnít detect any specific peach flavor. Itís sneaky big. Not worth $13 a bopper. Wonít buy again but glad I tried it once. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

notalush (4872) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Tap - hazy gold with a soapy lace - nose is funky peach skin, light oak and a fair amount of Chardonay character - flavor is subtle, with very well-masked alcohol, making it pretty dangerous - there is some warmth in the finish, but this is very light - surprisingly dry, with the white wine and oak being most prominent - the peach character is present, but subtle, adding a mild sweetness and a touch of earthy fruit skin - finish is pretty much all subtle oak and Chardonay - I like it.

22 oz bomber. Orange with a decent white head. Aroma is of peaches, peach skin, tea, light herbal notes. Taste is of peaches, booze, sugar, light earth.
