4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at the brewpub
Murky amber color, dull hue, compact head. The aroma provides loads of bourbon. Fairly sweet, with a very good malt base, a mellow fruity touch, strong bourbon character and pleasant alcohol warmth. The base beer is the winning element here, the bourbon and peach are a fun experiment.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Hair of the Dog tasting room, pours a dark ruby red with a tiny ring of off-white head. Aroma of peach and bourbon upfront, both relatively prominent, with some caramel malt sweetness and brown sugar. Flavour is still as bourbon-heavy as regular Bourbon Fred from the Wood, but now with prominent peach flavours (duh!). Lots of barrels, woody notes and bourbon, a bit of vanilla, the peach well-accentuating the barrel character. Excellent stuff, as always from this brewery. A bit cloying in peach sweetness after a while, holding this one back from being a masterpiece. Still, very enjoyable.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
tap. big, sweet and sticky as fred tends to be, but with the time in bourbon barrel it’s become almost absurdly hot, green and raw. the peach character adds a small bit of fruit flavor (probably doesn’t add sweetness but if it does it would be hard to tell given how sweet fred is in the first place), that’s mostly raw and pulpy. thing is, it’s entirely too messy and disjointed. unbalanced levels of sweetness, bitterness and acid, with very noticeable alcohol. probably one of the least favorite beers i’ve had from hair of the dog.

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.
