3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Comes out of the bottle a clear, almost peach amber with a thick and rather persistent ivory head. Malty aroma has a strong overtone of peach brandy. Flavor has a malty core and a firm peach note, as well as oak and subtle wine tones - doubtless from the barrel aging - for a well-rounded and enjoyable taste. Subtle fruity sweetness nicely balances the sharp alcohol nip and the hoppy hint. Smooth, lively texture leaves an interesting wood and fruity finish. I hope that I get the opportunity to harvest the others in this series.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 2012. Appearance: slightly hazy golden orange with small white head. Aroma: peaches, white wine, touch of oak, mustiness. Taste: sweet peaches up front, white wine and honey in middle ending with tart peach juice, dust and some oak. Mouthfeel: thin to medium texture with medium carbonation. Overall: very complex and refreshing but toeing the too sweet line and that "dustiness" is slightly off putting.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from tap. Pours a nice hazy copper color. A light oak and peach aroma with an undertone of wheat. Flavor is Italy tastes of oaked wine but is fruity and finishes with a clean bitterness with notes of peaches and wheat. Mouthfeel is full and carbonation is average overall a delicious beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not as peachy as I was expecting. The winey, oaky characteristics actually take front and center, and the peach is more in the background. It gets a little more prominent as it warms. More subtle than I thought it would be.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2013 Served in a nonic from a 750 ML bottle; October 2012 bottling date.
A - Poured with a very good off-white head over a lightly hazy, amber/orange (peach) liquid.
Aroma: Fruity and woody, with a substantial impact from being "aged in chardonnay barrels".
Taste - fortunately not nearly as woody as the smell but both the wood and the wine have a clear impact on this wheat beer. Peaches are more subtle, probably being overpowered by the barrel aging.
Mouthfeel: 8.2% ABV is well hidden in this smooth beer. Medium carbonation. Medium body.
O: nicely complex, but peach/chardonnay barrel aging did not work as well as I expected. The Fig & Raisin from the same ME series is definitely better.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle to snifter. Looks good; a hazy orange with thin white lacing. Smells solid; white wine and peaches. Tastes decent, but not as good as it smells. Average on the palate. Decent, but not as good as I thought it would be when I first saw and smelled it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
2012 vintage 750ml bottle, shared by b3shine. Mostly clear orange / peach color. Thin white head. Maybe a couple dots of lace. Sort of an oaky chardonnay nose, some peach skin. Nice fruity flavor. Light tangy sweetness, some alcohol, no bite, no cloy. Bigger body, smooth light carbonation, good longer peachy aftertaste. Nice, interesting fruit beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy golden orange pour with a white head. Nose is sweet peach with a light tartness of lemon zest. Some bread, white wine, a bit of water, grass, and yeast. Flavor is a little bit on the watery side, but does have some very nice peach character. Lightly tart, some lemon zest, grass, and bread sweetness. A hint of sugar, white wine, and a slight sawdust note in the background. Pretty decent overall.
