This style of beer is classified in the "Fruit Beer" category. The focus is obviously on the fruit used in the brewing process. The aroma is over-whelming of "fresh picked peaches", but the taste is only lightly-laced with peaches.

pinkie (470) - New York, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Pours ornage amber with golden hues and a fat head of cream colored foam that fell slowly and left great lace. Hazy and with a stream of bubbles coming up from the center of the glass. Nose is peach fuzz. The skin of the fruit. A faint citrus backnote, light ripe peach and some tall crisp wheat. A bit of sugar a bit of maltiness. A bit of earthy spice. A touch of floral to accentuate the earth. Taste is pretty good. It’s a light and airy fruit on some flaked wheat that is honey kissed. Tall golden sweet wheat. That wheat has a bit of sourness. The earthiness is woven into the mouthfeel. Soft but a bit malty mouthfeel, a touch of weight a depth a gram of thickness. Soft and creamy with effervescent carbonation. That spice, a bit of orange for background. This finishes dry and with a bit of cracker light orange mixed with the peach!

22oz bottle shared by garthicus with me, blankboy, GregClow, jerc & mabel. Pale clear gold with a small white head. Sweetened unripe peach aroma, slightly papery. Slightly harsh taste, very much like biting into a peach pit; bitter, dry, underlying sweetness. Average body, a tad acidic, quite quick-finishing, but left a slightly harsh and vegetal aftertaste behind. Not all that bad despite the aftertaste.

Bottle [660ml] shared with HogTownHarry, garthicus, GregClow, jerc & mabel -- c/o garthicus. Pours a clear yellow-gold with a small diminishing foamy white head. Aroma is predominantly peach along with grain, malt and light hops -- there’s something slightly artificial or overly sweet about it. Flavour of peach, grain and pale malt with a light bitter finish. Average bodied. An interesting beer, enjoyable enough for what it is.

vtafro (6731) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - JAN 5, 2010
Bottle Shared at Ryan & Max’s Tasting @ Paul’s. Champagne like pour with light carbonation. Sweet peach and wheat aroma, Flat fruity starts out fruity peachy but then ends with a messy malt aftertaste.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Bomber- Jcwattsrugger? Pours a hazy light straw golden with a diminishing head. Aroma is very perfumey- not quite fresh authentic fruit- possible extract of fruit syrup? peach fragrance, peach pit, and fleshy with light malt- no hops. Flavor is extractish, sweet, artificial peach, stony and mineral with some tannins, candy sugar, aspartame sour peach candy somewhat clean in the end- with a slight slick finish.

garthicus (2912) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 2, 2010
I think I picked this bomber up in Village Beer Merchants, Buffalo. Appearance: Slight hazy gold with a small white head. Aroma: Like a peach flavoured boiled/hard candy, some vanilla, toffee and malt present too. Flavour: Buttery, again peach-candy like with some malt and a tiny amount of spice too. Not terrible at all.

(bottle - 22 oz) Lightly hazy peach color with a wispy white head. Aroma is very peachy and sweet. Natural peach aroma, not the peach essence. Flavor begins with a bitter and dry grass flavor, moving along to a very light flavor of semi-sweet and rather tart peaches. Finishes dry and bitter with the lightest sweetness lingering at the end. A bit too dry for my taste, but it did taste like actual peaches.

jercraigs (9872) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 29, 2009
2009-11-27. Dark yellow body with a small foamy white head. 3+ Strong peachy aroma has an artificial note to it. 6+ Flavour is similar candyish peach character, pleasant but the artificial notes in the finish are distracting. Average palate. Okay, meh. Bottle shared by Garthicus.

mabel (8640) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2009
[2597-20091127] 1pt6floz bottle. Surprisingly peachy fruit fragrant soap aroma. Clear, yellow brown body with a quick foamy white head. Ridiculously ripe peach fruit flavour follows through from the aroma with a grainy background. Medium body. Packs a sweet peach candy punch.
(c/o garthicus, w/ blankboy, GregClow, HogTownHarry, jerc)
