FlacoAlto's rating

3.2
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 12/20
FlacoAlto (3810) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 15, 2013
The beer arrives from the tap with perhaps a light haze, though it may just be the dim bar and the fact that the beer is so cold I cant really get rid of all the external condensation. The beer is a light gold color and is topped by a fluffy, pale tan colored head that leaves lots of lacing stuck to the sides of my glass. The aroma is dominated by the peach aromatics, it is noticeable as soon as the beer is handed to me and pretty much overwhelms anything else coming through.

The beer is quite cold, on the dry side, well carbonated with an effervescence, and finishes dry and a touch astringent. The peach flavor becomes more prominent as the beer warms up and boosts the perceived sweetness just a bit. Soft straw like grain notes, and maybe a touch of cracker describe the malt presence here. This is light bodied and quaffable, though it is not to light.

What I expected, peachy, refreshing and simplistic; not a bad example of a fruit beer, though not overly interesting either.

Draft - Huge candied peach aroma. Clear gold with a thin head. Tastes very similar to the smell, although some grain peeks through mid palate. Finish isnt cloyingly sweet, but mellow peach. This is way to sweet and is that sweet beer for people who dont like bitterness.

adnielsen (9417) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Tap @ High Desert. Pours a clear, yellow appearance with a white head. Spicy, fuzzy peach, a bit floral, fruit forward aroma. Slightly bitter, a touch grainy, peachy flavor. Probably would be refreshing on a hot day, but nit really anything special.

Pours clear with a thin head. Aroma was very peachy, sweet without being cloying. Tastes of (surprise!) peaches and malt. Light finish, just a touch of hops. While I enjoyed this beer, its just not my style of beer. Too light and sweet. My wife, on the other hand, had 2 pints.

LilBeerDoctor (3506) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. It was so good that I only got pints of this beer (3 of them) because it was too good to pass up. Pours a clear light orange with a white head. Aroma (please ignore the prior rater) is SUPER peachy. It smells like a fresh peach. Sweet, but not artificial. Flavor is again, very peachy, whole peaches not just the juice with just a hint of the background wheat malt. I think Im drinking a peach. Best peach ale ever because it really tastes like actual peaches without the sweetened juice. Awesome stuff. 9/4/8/4/16 [4.1/5]

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2004 tap at brewery-good wheat beer here-not a lot of peach flavor-mainly ads sweetness to the brew. not to shabby
