StefanSD (2112) - 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, Iím somewhat disappointed. That aside it was an enjoyable quaff.

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 (4824) - 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.

travita (3913) - Frisco, Texas, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle. The look is very clear, iced tea colored, and has a light off white. The smell is peaches, fruit, and just a lot of peach stuff. The taste is peaches, flavored tea, sweet, fruit, and tart.

Tripplebrew (775) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Pours a clear copper orange with frothy white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is a mix of bread, brown sugar and dried peaches and even apricots. Flavor is dried peaches, whole wheat homemade bread and brown sugar and subtle raisin notes. Body is creamy but with active carbonation to lighten the feel on the palate. Coats the mouth but swallows clean with just a light aftertaste of alcohol

on tap at slows bar bq, detroit. hazy, almost cloudy pale golden with a small white cap showing minimal retention and lacing. subtle yet upfront peaches in syrup aroma, otehr fruity notes - golden raisins and small yellow fruits, fairly peppery and spicy - belgian yeast action, honeyed malts with their sugars, bit of wood, underlying chocolate vanilla cake notes (!). moderately low carbonation, light body - oily and sugary, bittering herbal-grassy and slightly astringent finish. ok.

dresden (825) - 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. Itís ok, peaches could be more prominent for my liking

Ferris (3817) - 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.
