3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This was a fun beer joint tasted via Facebook Chat with Strykzone and locally with my brother Rick. The pour was a cloudy peach color as befits its name, and a nice off-white head and glue like lacing rings. Nose of peach. And more peach. The body was medium and the mourhfeel relatively smooth. The flavor was a good balance between the peach and wheat which make the fruit be under control,. The finish was more like quality wheat beer than a fruit beer with a hint of vanilla. Overall this was a really good rendition of a fruit beer. b

12 oz. bottle from Hayduke. He, Rick, and I enjoyed it together via facebook chat. This poured a dingy golden and was hazy with suspended yeast. An off white head was two fingers and left sticky and spotty lacing. The aroma was very sweet and was like canned peaches. The flavor brought out both wheat and peach. Some cloves were noted and they indicate some very nice balance between fruit and wheat. This was more bitter than expected with an unripe fruit bitterness. The finish brought out a vanilla like soft spice. Very nice.

This beer pours a hazy peach color appropriately enough, with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Fresh peaches and malt in the nose. Light body with a sweet peachy flavor with some wheat and malt in the background. The finish is straight peaches. Points for capturing the base fruit so accurately, but otherwise pretty straightforward.

Draft. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Aroma with straight up peaches and cream, sweet and authentic. The flavor is also fresh and peachy. Not cloyingly sweet. Shockingly good.

Draft @ rattle. Pour is a hazy orange/pink hue. Reminds me of the sugary peach ring candies. Candi sugar, fuzzy peach skins, and wheat.

Tap at RnH - wow that arouma is very impressive. They managed to isolate that full, peach creamsicle and somehow kept it intact during the brewing process. Nose is peach creamsicle and a touch of citrus and canned peaches. Body is lighter than expected, light wheat and grain y notes, sweet fruits with a touch of caramel but mostly just light fruit juice. Fully sweet finish with only a hint of dryness. The least offensive ( and therefore the best) fruit beer Iíve had. Itís really the awesome arouma that keeps this together.

Candy. Smells like gummy peaches. Sweet and vanilla-y. Hazy dark golden. Not my thing.
