Fritz123 (1535) - 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.

TheHOFF43 (1979) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - FEB 29, 2016
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear yellow. No head. Aroma is lots of Belgian yeast. Bananas, clove, some subtle peach. Taste is more of the same, harsh alcohol burn. Really not very good.

jc1762 (521) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 5, 2016
Poured into a teku showing well filtered yellow peach color and no head. The nose is similar to a weizen - banana, cloves, with hints of peaches and oak. The palate is moderately carbonated and light bodied. Flavors show strong round malts with a background of peaches. As it warms on the palate, the peach flavors become more overt and intense. A strong alcohol but zesty spiciness throughout and on the linger. Malts appear on the finish. The oak chardonnay flavors appear in background in a very subtle manner.

AirForceHops (5661) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 23, 2016
22 oz. bottle thanks to Willrunforbeer. Release number 33. It is a honey gold color without head. Aroma is peach upfront, sugar and pale malts.

Flavor does display the peach in the foreground with a good grain bill with some unfermented sugar. A very mild warming of alcohol with booze showing mildly. Mouthfeel is almost champagne like with a nice feel.

nickd717 (3993) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 25, 2015
Bottle, large format. Hazy golden orange color with a small white head. The aroma is peaches, Belgian yeast, and noble hops. Somewhat Belgian flavor, medium fruit, medium sweet. Hides the booze well. Medium-plus body with average carbonation. A bruiser. Good but not great.

jbruner (3709) - Athens, Georgia, USA - DEC 19, 2015
Pours a clear golden yellow from the bomber with thin bubbly white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of big brett funk and sweet stone fruit notes. Taste is more toward the fruit with sweet vanilla oak tannins, more saison than funk. Booze is well hidden, great beer.
