Pours pale yellow into a tulip. Little to no head. Sour peach aromas. Tart thin peach upfront with a spritzy malt finish. Refreshing.

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 25, 2008
75cl bottle from Willow Bend Liquors (Tampa, FL). Pours a hazy caramel-ywllow with a fizzy white head that settles quickly. Little lacing on glass. Aroma is slightly sweet and malty, with notes of sweet, ripe fruit, banana, and a slightly wheaty and yeast smell. Flavor is decidedly buttery and peachy, with hints of popcorn, toffee, and herbs. Light to medium body with a slightly tangy sweet finish.

BuckeyeSammy (596) - Palo Alto, Ohio, USA - JUL 11, 2008
Nicely balanced fruit beer. Tart with lingering peach notes. I think by watery, some people were describing this beers somewhat thin palate.

sleepylopes (318) - New York, USA - JUL 10, 2008
a little to cold some small ice chips none the less the dry peach aroma comes out strong. smooth and a little tart with a great peach finish that lingers long and lives large. i can understand the watery comments but you have to look past that its a fruit beer. would rather have the water than syrup. ultra balance.

marcus (8709) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 23, 2008
This blonde ale poured with a decent white head that quickly disappeared. The peaches are easily detected in the aroma. The flavor is a bit flat and watery, but it leaves a pleasant carbonated mouthfeel. This is a refreshing summer drink, but is not of high quality.

bhensonb (13622) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 23, 2008
750 ml bottle shared by Marcus. Hazy peachy color with a white head that left rapidly. Light peach aroma. Medium body with fizzy carbonation. There’s some sour, some mild peach, some herbs, some peach pit and/or woodiness. A very quaffable drink. Light and refreshing. It definitely improves with time.

Maria (10205) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2008
Blind tasting @ Yespr. Yellow-grey, hazy with a creamy head. The aroma has a lot of peach and sweetness. The flavour has sweetness, intense peach and sweetness. It’s pretty much like opening a can of peach – the same sweetness and flavour.
