(Bottle 75 cl) Courtesy of yespr. Very hazy opaque pale golden with a white head. Aroma of fruit and perhaps a litte....Brett? Light-bodied with notes of apricot and perhaps a little coconut. The finish is dry without much bitterness. 290508

Bottle, thanks Jeremy & Mabel! Hazy orange, white head. Nose is big peach, a bit of bretty lemon pith. Flavor is peach, very light malt, slight fruity acidity. A wheat beer with a very nice peach/acid component.

[1615-20080816] 1pt9.4floz bottle. Ready-to-eat peaches and light yeast aroma. Hazy, light brown orange body with a medium-lasting creamy white head. Lightly yeasty aroma is mostly nicely ripened peaches with all their bits: juice and skins and pits. Light-medium body. Very unique, I still am unsure if I like it.

Overheard: "I thought the drawing was cherries... Angry cherries." - referring to the label of angry-looking peaches

2008-08-16. Hazy pastel yellow-orange with a nice white head that fades. (3+) Nasty sweat socks is my first impression, floating over a lovely sweet syrupy peach character that develops into a lightly funky peach overall. Tart-sour flavour mellows into sweetish fruit, nondescript peaches, very light funky-musty character throughout. Brief hint of bile-like acidity might be imagined but is off-putting regardless. Tart wheat like hints. Average to thin palate. This probably would have come off as more refreshing had it not followed an IPA filled afternoon, but its a bit of an odd-duck regardless. Bottle, Village Beer Merchant, Buffalo

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.

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 (9138) - 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.
