StefanSD (2070) - Lakeside, California, USA - MAY 26, 2013
650 ml bottle from bev4less. Pours a translucent brass color with a big fluffy white head that has good retention. The aroma is moderately strong with Belgian yeasts, white fruits and dust. The flavor, like the nose, is more of the same--I get yeasts, indistinct white fruits, vanilla and something earthy. The palate is silky smooth and the carbonation is lively. Finishes medium in duration and a bit astringent. Overall: I could not pick out any peaches in the taste, I’m somewhat disappointed. That aside it was an enjoyable quaff.

ABUSEDGOAT (2322) - California, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Clear golden, decent lace/retention. Aroma is lighter fruit dominated by peach, belgian yeast, pale malt. Medium bodied, light oak character, alcohol hidden well.

dresden (779) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - JUN 27, 2014
Golden with big fluffy head. Lots if Belgian yeast aroma, light peaches, but very light. Taste is white wine, very faint peach, light wood. It’s ok, peaches could be more prominent for my liking

Ferris (2905) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 20, 2014
Draft - Peaches, raw oak and sweet yeast. Clear gold with a thin white head. Boozy, sweet Belgian yeast with peaches prominent. Boozy and estery as with Belgians, which I am not a huge fan of.

Tap. Cloudy yellow pour with white head. Smells of peaches and yeast. Tastes of sweet peaches on the front with slight sour finish. Not bad ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

djd07 (3243) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Bottle. Release 1. Pours a cloudy yellow with frothy off white head. The aroma is strong funk and peach. Thin mouthfeel with light tart peach and oak with nice light dry finish. Easy to drink, very good.

Caytinator (894) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 18, 2014
5oz taster at Denver pubroom - golden bright yellow color, clear. Innocuous smell, hard to pin down. Wild taste, tons of flavor, I can taste the white wine, sour a little bit. Oak-y woody flavor is present too. Apt description up top. Bonus points for creativity, what a weird beer.

Light taste of peach on the back of the tongue. Light and fast champagne carbonation with an after taste of of the same. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nearbeer (3586) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 27, 2014
650 ml. release #45, 11.1 % abv. Clear golden with a touch of amber and a head that mostly disappears. Nose of dried light fruit, citrus pollen, honey and spicy yeast. Maybe some toasted oak too. Tastes of honey, tropical bubblegum, white wine, and peach. Long finish of peppery citrus zest, light char and oak brings it all back to the dry side. The peach and oak are subtle at first but quickly become more evident and lend an excellent hand in making this a dangerously drinkable brew. Medium body has a medium-high but mostly smooth carbonation. A small, but pleasant warmth is the only evidence of the big abv.

tmoreau (2284) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - APR 23, 2014
Shared bomber, poured to snifters, showing a clear, orangey gold color, with a modest layer of white foam that reduced quickly to a ring & film, and left some spots of lacing. The nose was light yeast, a little greenery & weed, a touch of Saaz spiciness, and only light, white peach scent. Taste was somewhat similar notes, with candi sweetness, subtle, vinous quality, moderate spritz to the carbonation, in a medium body. Alcohol was present, but fairly hidden. Not bad, but would’ve appreciated more of the key ingredient.
