COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

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.

blipp (5967) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JUL 19, 2009
Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Light and wheaty aroma, with an apropriate amount of peachy sweetness. The flavor is not overly sweet with peaches on a wheaty malt base. Simple, but refreshing.

swoopjones (5676) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 9, 2009
draft @ BuffaloBrewFest. Medium gold pour. Perfumy peach aroma. Taste was peachy sweet, light tartness. Had trouble finishing a 3ozpour. Not a big fan of peach however.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - NOV 22, 2009
Bottle Shared at Ryan & Max’s Tasting @ Pauls. Pours a pale yellow body with a thin white head. Aroma is fresh peach and a lighter wheat toned body. Stars peach but quickly diminishes to a dull grain milled malt bill. Eh.

mabel (5414) - 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.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - 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.

zach8270 (3387) - Henrietta, New York, USA - DEC 10, 2009
(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.
