3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours the color of peach flesh with a white head. Smells of stewing peaches with sugary malts and a touch of lemon zest. On the palate, stewed peaches mix with pale malts and a very slight tartness to provide balance. Unnecessarily boozy but not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
THOUGHTS: Nice, but not as great as I thought it would be. The peach flavor was a little artificial or, at least, canned. The aroma was somehow artificial and I couldn’t quite get past that.
TECHNICAL: Drank 4/21/2013. Bottle. Poured a fairly clear, but maybe slightly cloudy, medium golden with a frothy and fizzy, white head that mostly diminished and left good lacing. The aroma had moderately spicy yeast, pear, odd peach, canned peach juices or syrup and something grassy. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and lightly acidic; while the finish was moderately sweet, lightly bitter and slightly sour. There was canned peach syrup, spicy yeast, pears, peaches, honey and light caramel. The medium body was dry with fizzy and very tingly carbonation and a slightly alcoholic finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle -
Aroma - phenolic with a canned peach/syrup-y angle, light wood and caramel too
Appearance - hazy golden body, smallish 1-finger white foamy head, average retention/lacing Mouthfeel - medium bodied, light carbonation
Flavor - peach yogurt, bubblegum, lightly citrus and yeasty
Overall - refreshing, clean but lacks complexity and the peach character seems a bit odd at times.

22oz bottle pours hazy orange with a finger of head. Nose is sweet yeasty fruit and medicinal artificial peach, bready grain.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, release #49. Pours a bright gold with a high, fine-grained, lacy, bright white head. Nose is peaches, yeast, Riesling grapes, phenols, nutmeg, and vanilla sugar. Stone fruit and sweetness on the front of the tongue, then Belgian yeast and toastiness following after; a lemony spiciness and dryness finishes it off at the back of the tongue. Finish is dry, spicy, and lactic. Nice, not overdone, and well-balanced.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale gold color. White foamy ring on top. If you drank a pink of this you’d 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. I’m 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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
"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."

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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
