COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An unfiltered American wheat ale made with real mean peaches. The only thing missing is the fuzz. Savor the anger.

12oz bottle - Received via trade with bluesandbarbq (thank you!). You know when you see a really smokiní hot female somewhere, but you finally see her face and you chalk her up to a "butterface". Well this beer was the equivalent of a "butterface". The aroma was so incredibly enticing, so alluring that when you finally got to taste it, it was a let-down. But the aroma....I could smell it for days. Starts out like some fresh peach juice, or maybe some peach candy. After a bit of warming up, it takes on the aroma 50/50 bar (some call it a dreamcicle...the half orange/half vanilla...oh yeah). Peaches, 50/50 bar...how is this a bad thing? Body looks great..almost hefe-like...a light orange, murky but the head formation is a little weak. The flavor...ugh...itís like someone took a handful of aspirin, crushed it up and dumped it in the bottle. Light peach flavor and an overwhelming astringency that just took over every possible flavor profile. It all came back to the aspirin. A knock-out of a beer if you simply look at it and smell itís enticing scent. Too bad.

Bottle@ trailer. Hazy amber color with ivory head. Nice peachy, pale malt, bready aromas. Medium bodied. Peach cream, vanilla flavors with some bready maltage____tangy finish---almost decent.

Rated from notes taken 6 Aug 2011 -- Subtle hint of peach, could be vastly better.

On draft at Greenville Spartanburg airport. No joke on the name. Peaches on the nose and peaches on the palate. A good, not great wheat beer. A little less peach would have improved this draft sweetness of the peach was a not overpowering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

If you like peaches, you'll like this beer. Peaches in the aroma and flavor. Smells and tastes like real peaches too. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HourGlass13 (131) - North Carolina, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Pours a light amber orange color with a small white head. Smell is very peach, with just a hint of grain. Taste is very sweet and very peach. This would make a great desert beer! It is somewhat fizzy, and has an odd taste on the finish.

jdb288 (581) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Draft. Pours white/orange with not much head. Aroma is definitely peachy, some more subtle grain/hay/barn aromas. Taste is aggressively sweet, lots of fruit sugars, with an odd malt sweetness as well. No balance; completely sweet. It "dries" out a little as it warms but this was cloyingly sweet.

thome50 (1082) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - JUL 31, 2014
Tap at Flying Saucer in Nashville. Pours a hazy orange with minimal white head. Aroma of peach candy and syrup. Taste is overly sweet peach candy with a grainy, crappy wheat beer base. There is a little banana and hay and rubber. Overall, too sweet and fake tasting.

jcartamdg (2102) - Spring Hill, Florida, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Pours a hazy gold with a thin white head. Aroma of big sweet peaches, over the top. Taste is very sweet peaches, like peach jam but not in a good way. Way too sweet. May be a good beer for women who like sweet cocktails.
