3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle poured a clear orange hue w/ a big creamy off-white head diminishing to a lasting cap. Oct 2013 bottling, enjoyed July 2016. Light dried apricot and peach aroma. Initial flavor is moderate to bold sweet w/ a light bitter finish. Tastes are peaches, brown sugar, and a faint cardboard from oxidation, which I note but won't ding the score as 3 years is a long time for this style. Full bodied.

Bomber. Pours copper with a beige head and sweet fruit aroma. Taste is sweet as well, with peach notes along with fruits, caramel, and jam leading to a sweet, caramel and peach finish.

Pours a dark rusty cooper color with a beige head. Nose is very sweet and fruity . Taste is fruity with some alcohol and canned peaches....syrupy and molasses like. Finishes on the same sweet fruity tasting notes . Fair at best !
Quaff Score 7 / 10

My bottle of Peach Grand Cru was bottled November 5, 2014 and had an ABV of 12%. You definitely cannot fault Great Divide for skimping on the peaches here. Lots of stone fruit aroma and bread-like yeast on the nose. Appearance is hazy, relatively heady, and dark orange. Tastes like fruity sweetness and Belgian yeast. Carbonation is still pretty lively even after the passage of more than a year. This is a lovely beer, but with the fruit juice, malts and the high levels of booze, it flirts with being cloying. Too sweet for me to have again, but a well-executed beer. Would be right at home with some mascarpone cheese.

Bouteille 75cl de Luekens Liquor.
Orangé troulbe, col blanc.
Arôme met en avant un bouquet pêche, belge en retro, grains. Douceur semble être dominante voire surfaite.
Palais est chargé en pêches, sucré, collant aux lèvres avec un malté épais. Le tout est réchauffant se rapprochant bcp d’un braggot voire d’un hydromel. Pêche persiste en fin de bouche, le tout étant un peu chaotique masi don’t l’effet sucré est surfait poussé à la limite par l’alcool..

Bottle leftover at tderoeck's place. Nice smell, peaches, light sour in the smell. Taste is overly sweet, not a bad beer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Thank you Sebletitje! 750 ml. bottle sampled @ “Tim’s Christmas Tasting”. Bottled on Nov. 18 2014. Dark amber golden, creamy white head. Nose is huge milky sugar sweetness, with yeast, sweetness is akin to yoghurt, sugar but too extreme to be pleasant in any way. Taste is same milky yeast, white sugar sweetness, excessive down to the point of undrinkable, white sugar & milky yeast to extreme, sweeter than a spoonful of white sugar can ever be, excessive sweet peach in a horrible candy fashion, no real fruit, bubblegum, honey,… Milky, sugary body. Awful just, I cannot drink this, let stand alone enjoy. Revolting sweetness in a milky yeast way to the absolute extreme & more.

Orange pour from 22oz bottle at JP Burkes. Tiny white head. Peach and creamy vanilla aroma. Peachy and fruity, but boozy for sure. Pretty tasty beer

Wow. This thing must need more age. I’m guessing it’s a year old, but it needs more. Not hot. Infact, its quite mellow, but its very syrupy. Almost like peach syrup. Kinda like a euro strong lager actually, but with peach juice. Didn’t really care for it. Overly sweet. Murky dull amber pour is appealing, but it doesn’t make up for the rest. A rare dissapointment from Great Divide.
