StefanSD (2217) - 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.

Draft at Special Brews. Soft, slight hazed yellow, small ring head. Waxy fruit aroma, blonde body. Bite of yeast and white wine, but waxy fruit and vanilla seed dominate. Smooth body, alc rather well hidden, ripe fruit undertones. Not a favorite.

Appearance: translucent yellow color with white head head dissolves slightly quickly but it is nice when poured - not a lot of lacing left on glass Aroma: smell peach when poured sour slightly funky smell sweet Taste: slightly funky sour peach taste, taste like wine or chanpagne very fizzy Palette: a little tart and bitter at end light body Overall: this beer has a great flavor profile and is very interesting - it really taste like wine rather than a beer I am very surprised ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cbfobes (2596) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - JAN 12, 2015
Poured from bottle, pours a clear dark gold with bubbly white head and spotty lacing in the glass, the aroma is what you would expect, lots of peaches and sweet fruit with a touch of funk and belgian yeast, the flavor has a peachy and fruit front end with a spice like finish with a little bit of dryness from the wine coming through, I rather enjoyed it, guilty pleasure I suppose.

Bomber- Really pale golden (almost clear) color. Pours bubbly but quickly dissipates. Very, very faint smell of peaches. Not sure what to say about the taste- a sort of pleasant, explosion of sweet and bitter along with the the sensation of booze on your tongue and down the throat.

deekyn (1285) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 26, 2014
From short notes. Peachy and a little Belgiany. White wine notes and honey. Malty, but simple and very muddled taste. Nice enough

Release #3 from a 22 oz bottle. Pours gold with small head and lace . Aroma of light malts, lemon, peaches, persimmon. Big carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of peaches, alcohol, lemon zest, light malts, oak. Overall wild and complex, rich, challenging yet tasty.

Tastes better than the Two Jokers beer we got a couple weeks ago. I?m a porter guy and this beer was kinda tasty. A little dry aftertaste though...

Taster at the brewery. Pours a bright yellow with thin white head. Aroma is Belgian yeast, white wine, hints of oak. Taste is white wine, oak and bits of tropical fruit. Not much peach. Honey sweetness. Palate is light body, light carbonation. Highly rated, but not really my style.
