3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
August 20th, 2014 - The theme of the day at Lone Tree has been sweet, sweet, sweet, like a trip through Willy Wonka’s bar. That’s not bad, but my palate is feeling a little like a kid at the end of a carnival binge, but I push on with one last beer: the Peach Pale Ale. It is a gorgeously clear brew, with a solid finger and a half of foam on top, which I clear aside to catch the scent. There I find lots of fresh orange, maybe more on the blood orange side, with a hint of grapefruit to signal the hops are there and present. The flavor starts mild and quiet, with a soft, foamy body and a quenching palate, but ramps up the sweetness, slowly, even sneakily. Along the way I get some floral notes, honeysuckle, honey, and a short aftertaste featuring orange and orange syrup, like a sweet afterglow. Of the three beers today, this is the most reservedly sweet.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A- Wheat, corn, grains, subtle stone fruit.
A- Orange color, hazy liquid, white head.
T- Peach, wheat.
P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, boring finish.
O- Lightly hopped indeed. In fact, I’d consider this more a wheat ale than pale ale. Good to start in the style though. Minimal bitterness and not much peach on the nose, but some on the palate. Decent. Probably a lot better for someone just getting into craft.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A sample pour at GABF 2015, In the tasting glass this was a clear gold color with a white head. Nose of fruit, mostly peach. Medium in body. Flavor is caramel malts and citrus plus fruit. Finishes wth the peach and a small amount of bitterness. The peach works really well here and this is quite tasty,

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Peachy and doughy, like cobbler before it goes into the oven. I’m guessing. It’s not like I’ve ever actually made peach cobbler, just sampled the finished product. Not "hoppy" but bitter enough to offset the sweetness of the peaches nicely.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at the tap room. Clear pale orange color with a medium thin white head that evaporates quickly to a sparse outer ring. Spotty lacing. Aroma of peaches and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of pale malt, peaches and slight herbal yeast. The finish is fruity with a short mild peachy aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s in a mixer sixer. Pours a dull, slightly hazy orange appearance with a nice off white head. The aroma certainly has some peach and also has some bread, light toast, and some grass. Medium light body. Moderate high bitterness, low sweetness. Bread, chewy dough, dull fruit, grass / grain, herbal flavor. Finishes pretty bitter. A bit of acidity. Bleh.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. can from Wilbur’s. Appearance: 2 fingers white head, straw-gold, clear, light lacing. Aroma: peach, bandaid, light caramel, Palate: light body, soft carbonation, light bitter finish, dry. Taste: sweet caramel with light peach sweetness, into a light floral bitterness. Overall, pretty flat, I do like that the peach is super subdued, but the subtlety of the hops is off too. Not super stoked.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz can. Pours clear straw yellow with a smallish white head that quickly goes to a thin collar that leaves a little lacing.
The aroma is lots of peach and some malt.
The flavor is bready malt with a nice peach finish and enough hops to balance the sweetness. The mouthfeel is a bit thin bodied with low carbonation and a bit watery.
Overall, a nice well balanced peach beer. A bit watery.
