StefanSD (2306) - Ouray, Colorado, 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.

Bomber from Whole Foods PM. Pours hazy golden with off-white head. Nose is peach chardonnay and hops. Tastes of peach, white wine, mild oak, yeast, and a dry, floral finish.

jc1762 (553) - New Jersey, USA - 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 (5775) - 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.
