Our summer fruit beer selection. A classic infusion of wheat beer and peaches produces this sweet, yet refreshing summer beer. Modelled off a Belgian Peche, the South Peach starts sweet and peachy, and finishes dry and slightly tart.

On tap at the brewpub. First taste is fantastic, a nice hit of peach with sweet caramel malts and a light grassy hop. As it warmed, it tasted more and more artificial and was starting to feel like it should’ve been a drain pour.

Tried as a sampler at the brewery. As a fruit beer it looked fairly like a straightforward beer. Not too sweet, light bodied and drinkable, just not my favourite style of beer.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2008 RE-RATE: On Tap at the Five Islands Brewery. Arrived orangey yellow with a averaged sized, frothy, white head which lasted well. Aroma was sweet with strong notes of canned peaches, apricot nectar and nectarines. Flavor was of dry/tart peaches, with light rustic notes in the finish. Quite nectar like and a little one dimensional. Light bodied with medium carbonation, a dry/tart mouthfeel, somewhat syrupy texture and an ok finish. I found this one quite hard to get through, seemed to get quite thick, syrupy and generally cloying half way through my mere 250ml serving.

On tap at Five Islands. Wow - very impressive peach flavoured pilsner or similar lager. Bright orange, peachy colour with a tight, frothy white head that holds on quite well. Flavour is very distinctly and strongly peachy, but not sickly sweet or artificial. Slight hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste. Maybe couldn’t drink it for an entire night still, but at least half of one. Highly reccomended; it seems to have replaced the Strawberry, and is probably a big step up given the reviews that got!
