COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Tap@ABC Tavern, Cleveland, USA. Peach and vanilla can be tasted, other vice way too light for this percentage.

cheap (5073) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2016
Tap at bocktown. Not sure where we are going with this one, barrel aged fruit beer? HAH. Beautifully sexy lacing. Slight sour peach aroma. How odd the flavor is. Rather dull on the taste. Yes, some unsweet peach is in there but it comes across quite like medicine with the barrel. What ev, not impressed. A little less than average for a fruit beer.

Very light. Sweet and peach like those peach gummy rings. Not a stellar beer, but not bad.

puboflyons (2873) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 20, 2016
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is bright yellow with a tremendous white foamy head that settles back after a few minutes. The aroma has peach esters mixed in with the grainy malt and wheat malt setting. Seems grassy too. The body is light to medium. Peach fruitiness is the main thing I get in the taste with only the vaguest hint of wheat. It has a clean, crisp finish. It probably would be quite good for a hot summer day.

kevinsenn (1851) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 12, 2016
On tap at Distillery. Massive peach aroma. Smooth peach and bourbon taste, vanilla and booze in the finish. The bourbon and booze gets stronger and mess pleasant with time. Not really a fan.

EithCubes (5426) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 9, 2016
Bottle. Nose dank artificial peach liqueur/extract, pours clear golden with a large and dense cream head. Light-medium body with more of that weak peach syrup, something like would be reserved for pancakes, with some bready-yeasty underfeelings and cereal grain, hints of bracing alcohol. Very light spice, hint of vanilla, maybe (dairy) cream. A little bland for the big size, but not disreputable, certainly not dirty. I’d have it again. [2016.03.09: 2.6]

boto (2041) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - MAR 8, 2016
Draught @ Tapped: This one poured a crystal clear golden color. There was really no head or lacing. The aroma is peach and wheat. The peach smells syrupy and a bit fake. The taste is peach, and almost nothing but peach. Not really overdone, but it is about all you get. That said, it actually doesn’t taste that bad. Lighter feel to it, which belies the 8% alcohol.

HighlanderOne (1150) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - MAR 4, 2016
Poured from bottle. Aroma of juice, bourbon and booze. Appearance is clear gold with just a bit of head. Tasting peach nectar, bourbon, vanilla, hay, booze. Palate is a bit thin, but OK. Overall, not bad for a summer brew, personally wish it had more of a wheat backbone.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6197) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 1, 2016
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a golden-amber color with a small foamy white head that left good lacing. The aroma was sweetish with peach brandy and a bit of wood. The flavor was peach and wood - a bit jammy but not overly sweet. Long finish. Moderately full bodied but a touch undercarbonated. The peach presence grows as it warms. Tasty.

Theydon_Bois (15534) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2015
Bottle at RBWG ’15 Grand Tasting @ Coppertail, thanks to whomever shared this one, 21/02/15. Lightly hazed golden with a moderate off white covering. Nose is peach, caramel, wheaten bread. Taste comprises sweet licks, peach, bread, straw. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok fruit bier.
