Kentucky Peach Barrel Wheat Ale is a light, crisp ale perfect for lazy, sun-drenched summer days. Images of your real (or fanciful) old Kentucky home in bourbon country are conjured up with every sip, thanks to the brew’s six-week aging period in fresh Kentucky bourbon barrels. Our barrel-aging process balances hints of caramel and vanilla and subtle cereal notes with the juiciness of a fresh ripe peach, creating a golden color. Enjoy this light-bodied, refreshing offering before the bright rays of summer fade into fall.

Bottle at RBWG. I don’t know why I even tried. Sounded like a bad idea. Tasted like a bad idea. Fake peach, some oak, way too sweet and artificial.Yikes.

Bottle at Coppertail Brewing during the RBWG 2015 Grand Tasting shared by jackl, thanks Jack! Clear straw yellow with off-white head. Aromas of big peach fruit and candy, like those peach jelly rings. Tastes of peaches, oak, light whiskey. Medium-light body with a dry finish.

12 oz. Bottle, pours orange/gold with a fast-fading head. Aroma is of a peach jam, with an honest peach flavor to a wheat style beer. Cannot taste hops at all, but there is a brief bitter taste between initial peach taste and a moderately lingering fruity palate. As with most fruit beers, one or two is plenty per sitting, but this one makes the most of it with a big ’ol ABV. Overall, pretty good beer.

drowland (6569) - Georgia, USA - FEB 6, 2015
12oz bottle sampled summer 2014. Orange amber pour under a small khaki head, mild lacing. Gross aroma, loads of peach, bordering peach flavoring, a bit of wood and barrel. Gross flavor as well, so sweet, way too much peach, caramel, some wood and bourbon. Gross. I literally hate this brewery.

Pours a clear straw yellow with a thin and not persistent ivory head. Sweet peach dominates the tempting aroma, which has a nice wheat underpinning. Flavor has peach and wheat notes, not strong but refreshing - this would be great on a steamy summer day, but it’s fine in cold weather too. Texture is more cider-like than beer-like, somewhat firm but barely fizzy. If not a great beer, one worthy of a fair taste.

Lots of peach, not much barrel. Or wheat, for that matter, but at least the peaches seem real and fresh.

chinchill (2551) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 27, 2014
2014 12 oz bottle . A modicum of sediment remained in the bottom of the bottle after a full pour into my glass. The golden amber body was topped by a weak off-white head that soon reduced to a thin ring. Quite peachy in both the aroma and the flavor, with a natural and somewhat freash peach taste. The BBL aging is less obvious, in part due to the strong peach flavor. Some biscuity malt base shows through it all. O: plenty to like about this ale, especially if a peachy ale is appealing,.

bottle. Deep golden, lightly hazy with one finger head. Sweet and peachy. Just tart enough to keep things interesting. A hint of booziness. One of the better fruit beers I’ve had in a while.

Whole lot of peach. Not as much barrel as I would have liked, which would have toned down the sweetness some. My wife said it best, It's almost like a Smirnoff. And she didn't mean that as a good thing. Still a decent fruit beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottled. Poured clear, bright golden with a dusting of white head. The aroma picked up lots of sweet peachy notes joined by candied lemon and earthy wheat.. it came across very sweet. The flavor found similar.. lightly tart open with wheat and a touch of peach kernel.. more meaty wheat and some bready notes at the core, with very sweet bourbon laced throughout.. tart bourbon and peachy notes on the sweet finish. Medium-bodied and a bit cloyingly sweet on the palate.. as it warmed up, it became harder to drink.
