3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a very hazy orange apricot color with a thin head. Fair head retention and lacing. Aroma is sweet peaches and cream with a bit of breadiness. Tart peaches in the taste with bread and spice. The peach taste seems fairly authentic and fresh. Very strong carbonation and light bodied.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Gillyís, 5/29/09
Is this a newer one? Only 11 raters before me, and I got it in MD...
Aroma: Dominated by peach, a little wheat, sugary, more like a peach candy or peach gum then actual peach...
Appearance: Cloudy yellow gold, nice inch or 2 of fluffy white head
Flavor: Peach is still dominant, but more subtle then in the nose, nice sweet wheat beer flavor, I found it to be surprisingly good
Palate: Super easy to drink, certainly feel more like 4% beer then a 5.8% beer, fizzy too
Look, its super fruity and light, but that was the point! If you donít want a fruit beer you picked up the wrong bottle, but hey, you shouldíve figured that out from the label. Itís not an Impy Stout there fella...Iím not a big fruit beer guy by any means, I rarely like them, and find most to be too sweet. After the nose, I thought this one was going to be too sweet for me too, but then I drank it, and found out they did a good job with this one, I really did enjoy it, and I ainít gonna apologize for that!
**Just submitted a photo for this one, as it was missing one.

Pours an orange color with a medium sized white head. Aroma is peaches, wheat, bubblegum. Flavor is malt, wheat, candy peaches. Relatively refreshing, but nothing to call home about here. If you like peaches, youíll probably enjoy it enough.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy orange with a white one-finger head. A lot of peach in the aroma, alongside some candy-ish bubblegum notes and a bit of grainy wheat. The wheat makes it almost musty, which I like. More of the same in the flavor, though the middle has that turn for the worse that the two raters below me speak of. The middle-end reminds me of Sam Adams Summer Wheat, which isnít necessarily a good thing. The flaw is noticeable, but it doesnít completely ruin this decent little refresher. Dry, almost-but-not-quite snappy finish.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
9th rating, 12oz. Pours orange with a bright white ring. Nose is sweet and peachy and pretty nice overall. Taste is sweet, like peach bubblegum, maybe a bit of diacetyl like OSLO mentiond but this beer is so muddled its hard to tell where the peach begins and a possible infection might end.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2009 [Bottle] Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma isnít bad--mainly just big on peach and bubblegum. The taste has a lot of bubblegum and peach too, at first...before transitioning into a diacetyl butter bomb with just a little malt evident. Ugh. Fairly thin, slightly dry, long finish. The diacetyl killed this beer for me, and really made it hard to even finish the bottle.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer pours a cloudy orangish gold with a peach aroma containing hints of wheaty yeast. The flavor is very smooth and not overly sugary or peachy, just a nice balance of classic American wheat ale qualities with a nice peach undertone. The mouthfeel is very creamy and admirably, not sticky like a lot of fruit beers tend to be. This is a nice, light bodied fruit beer your girlfriend will like.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Murky gold with a ringed white head. A whopper of a peach nose, not much past the sweet peachiness. The peach lays back in the flavor a bit, allowing a decent amount of wheat to come through. Spritzy body, which is a bit surprising from the appearance. Not overly sweet, in fact, a shade of tartness shows. Kinda agree with ChainGangguy - a bit of a chick beer, but refreshing nonetheless.

Tap @ TacoMac, Johnís Creek. Pours a goodlookin hazy orange, thin creamy white head. Good lace. Aroma of peach pie. Puree of ripen peaches over wheat malt. Flavor is very fruity. Lots of peaches although no sweetness. All floating around in a very dry, unfiltered wheat beer. Finishes with the flavor of a Childernís Tylenol. Overall, attendance of the peach is unique, in the least.
