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

First rate, cool. Tap at the brewery. Pours a shade darker and oranger than regular Fred. Flat looking, not much or no head. Peach pulp settled at the bottom. Aroma at first is straight bourbon. Nice but pretty much indistinguishable from Bourbon Fred. I think I get some fruitiness but might be placebo. As this warms the fruity peach aspects deepen and peaches are definitely there. Flavor is soft, fruity, low carbonation and smooth. Peach and bourbon both there. The fruitiness might cover up some complexities but this is super drinkable and about as sessionable as it gets for 10%+ bourbon barrel stuff.

Poured slightly darker orange than Fred with minimal white head around the edges. Nose is moderate amounts of peach, smooth bourbon, vanilla, oak, slight honey, and smooth caramel like malt. Taste is initially sweet bourbon, vanilla, oak, slight honey, and then a silky smooth peach flesh flavor. The fruit plays really well with the normal Fred creating a balanced palate that isn’t as sweet as Fred. Great beer especially after Apricot Fred. Mouthfeel was oily like Fred with a dry champagne finish. Awesome stuff.

Tap @ Hair of the Dog during their 17th anniversary weekend... Poured an amber/honey tone with lots of floaties (actually chunks of peaches). Aroma was much like regular Fred with hints of vanilla bourbonish tones. Peach really played nicely, a good sweet balance to the booziness. Sherry-like, and a dry, champagne alcohol quality.

On tap at HOTD Brewery and Taproom. 3-oz. taster. Fruit and butterscotch nose and thick sugary notes in aroma. Rose-tinged dark straw color. No head but a tiny stream of carbonation trickling upwards. Tangy and hearty. Some cheese. Very strong alcohol heat. Maybe not yet quite integrated. Medium body w/ light carbonation. Light warm wine-like aftertaste.
