Pour is cloudy dark amber with an off white tight head. Very fruity in the nose, orange peel and peach skin, slightly green and a touch dusty. Huge peach, really tastes like the first bite of a fresh fuzzy peach. Very singular with an earthy peach pit note in back. Medium body, soft palate, great carbonation. This is refreshing and easy to drink.

Damico (3119) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Pours clear peachy golden with an orange hue and decent white head. The aroma brings soft lightly sweetened peaches very soft in the nose, but most enjoyed. The flavor brings light peach notes on a lighter body with the peach settling again softly with a bit of spiciness, just a tad. It is not too carbonated as I thought it might be.

DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 29, 2012
Sample from a 750ml bottle, thanks to Jay for sharing this. Totally cloudy peach color (I think I got the end part of the bottle). Good thin white head, that fades eventually. Great peach nose-smell. Satisfying peach aroma, with a seafood note. Smooth texture, lightly pulpy, very light carbonation. More dry finish. Nice mild peachy aftertaste. Much less sweet than expected. Little tart, mild bitter. An above average fruit-beer, for sure.

daknole (10800) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 19, 2012
Cloudy peach colored pour with a foamy white head. Aroma hits with some peach and apricot notes, some yeast and a light bit of dusty funk. Flavor has the peaches, its yeasty, quite dry on the finish. The peach flavor seems to get lost a little in the yeast. Not bad at all, but could have been so much better.

Lukaduke (2918) - Gray, Maine, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Pours an light orange copper color with a fizzy two finger head that laces slightly and form a nice ring around the glass.... Aromas are stonefruit, apricot and a touch of sweet malts and subtle hints of funky yeast. On the palate this fruit beer is a great balance between fruit flavors and beer flavors. Ripe peach and big apricot flavors intertwined with slight bitter hops and earthy malt flavors all brightened up with light touches of sour tart glimpses and a tiny bit of funk. Very good.

PhillyCraft (5222) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2012
Multiple bottles from Pizza Port bottleshop. Pours a hazy glowing golden orange color, medium creamy white head, great sheets of lacing. Aromas of squeazed peach, lemons, wood, peach/apricot candy. Taste is a wonderfully refreshing earthy peach flavor with other small notes of yeasty tartness. Very well done. "Ill take the peacha fizzy"

50belair (3252) - Florida, USA - APR 19, 2012
2008 vintage bottle shared by friends in Rome. Cloudy yellow pour with a faint white head. Effervescent peach aromas. Light in body, very effervescent, with nice peach notes. It was a little bit watery and past itís prime, but you could still see the potential.

dreadnord (1012) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Pours golden orange with a huge white head. Nose is vinegar, peach, apricot, lemons and grass. Flavor is sweet with a mild bitter tinge. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean. Long aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3fourths (8982) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 8, 2012
750ml pours a softly hazed gold with a small film of a white head. mild basement must / concrete mix touches covering stale and dry peach in the nose. surprisingly muted front to back, medium-low acid, low bitterness, medium-low sweetness, entirely too dull and approaching what iíd call "flavorless". so itís all a bit confounding. unfiltered and bottle conditioned but lacks any sense of yeast; completely lacking of depth. flavor-wise, itís a wheat / wild grass / peach / apricot show, but thereís no depth whatsoever.
