3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the brewery. A: Cloudy peach color with a thin white head. No floaters, thank the Lawd and not much lacing. N: Peach, acetone, butter, toffee, caramel, some hops lend earth and pine. Oak and coconut. A fruity bourbon Fred.T: Sweet, a bit tart from the peach, and oaky. Big bourbon throughout.M: Medium body, spritzy carbonation, hidden alcohol.O: Last time I had this, it was like peach ice tea with floaters. Not good. This is quite pleasing. Peaches add a touch of fruit and a hint of acetone without overpowering the base flavors.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft taster at the brewery. Pours a cloudy apple orange with little head. Aroma of sweet peach and bold bourbon, which mixes nicely. Flavor matches the aroma, with a long, dry sweet bourbon finish. Interesting beer. Good stuff.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2014 Sampler at the brewpub. Thick dirty golden color. Too much of everything, particularly booze. Ugh. Boozy wood with tropical fruit hints.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a bright cloudy orange color with a medium white head. A big fruity huge bourbon nose. The flavor is hot bourbon, woody, sweet and tart peaches, a bit of sugary malts. The overall package here is a sweet malty big barrel aged brew. Excellent. The fruit treatment shines.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Old notes (from 2010). On tap at hotd. Colour...generally golden but VERY cloudy and chunky! More floaters than a high school toilet >~< Nose...quite fruity with obvious peach and some honey as well. Palate...a rather chunky experience! Various sizes of chunks are felt here. This is quite different. I’ve had thick chewy beers before but not literally chewy! There’s definitely loads of peach, but there’s also vanillin and some pie crust (though maybe the peach is just making me think "pie"). Not a horrid experience, but very, very different!

On tap at Hair of the Dog new location. Pours out thick like peach juice with peach pulp no head on this one. Aroma was nice tons of sweetness, peach, and vanilla. Taste was more of the sweet peach juice, some bourbon, and thick malts.

Draft at brewery. Strong nose of peach and vanilla. Moderate tangy flavors. Some floaters in the glass (peach floaters). Lingering fuzzy finish with slight alcohol warming. Sticky sweet finish. Great stuff.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A delicious unique beer. Havenâ€™t tasted anything quite like this before. Pours a nice dark amber, no head though. Smells great like bourbon and peaches. Taste starts with some bourbon, and then the peach comes in. The two work perfectly together, coming in waves and blending nicely. Also some marzipan and coconut in the finish. Ir tastes very much like a white port. Damn good! Had on tap at the brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap sampler at brewery, cloudy medium Amber, no head or lace. Aroma bourbon and citrus. Taste is bourbon, peach, alcohol, dry cider, finishing with whiskey barrel. Huge barrel presence here, but the peach makes it through, not sure the fred does though. Palate is suprisingly light, carbonation moderate and soft.
