On tap at Barleys Taproom and Pizzeria. It poured an amber gold color with an off-white head. The aroma was of peach and smelled great. The taste was sweet with a funky aftertaste. It had a medium body with a sticky finish.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2014 Look: pours a cloudy orange color. Small head that disappears quickly.
Smell: smells extra sweet. Peaches for sure. A honey sweet smell.
Taste: peaches and a bitterness to it. Not as sweet as the smell. Almost like a peach flavored ginger ale. Spiced peach, not fresh peach
Feel: leaves a film on the teeth and mouth like a bitter APA.
Overall: if it tasted as sweet as the smell you would have something. Not bad, just expected more sweetness from it.

Smells like peach. Sweet. This would be good if I liked peaches. Thin head. Way too fruit.

Pours a peach golden with a medium white head which disappears quickly. Aroma is natural peach plain and simple. Taste is peach, vanilla, wheat appears late with a medium body which compliments the overall experience. Quite refreshing.

16oz draft pours a hazy orange with a thin white head that sticks where liquid meets the glass. Nose is all sweet floral scent. Taste is syrup, flowers, and peach. Beer is overwhelmingly sweet, needs to be rounded out with some spicy hops. Pass

Draft. An overwhelming amount of peach in the nose. Pours a fairly clear light yellow with a small white head that laces down the glass leaving a film of white bubbles the whole way. Taste is a very sweet, candy like peach flavor with a moderate bitterness. Overall decent but a tad sweet to drink more than a taster.

Bottle at home. Huge fluffy white head. Aroma of canned peaches in syrup, wheat. NIce and tart with strong wheat character. Hoppy, grassy finish. Fruity. Not sweet or cloying at all. Creamy palate.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Standard longneck, OK label. Foggy, tan-gold with a thinnish white head. Excellent, supple peach pastry aroma - sweet, lightly floral, very fruity. Nicely bitter, not too sweet, peachy, biscuit-and-butter tones. As it warms, caramel and vanilla tones emerge. Mouthfeel is just a bit limp, body seems medium-light. Long, dry bitter finish with fruit. Pretty tasty. New Leaf Market.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Blindfolded, clothes pin on your nose, and sick, you could still tell this is a wheat peach ale, emphasis on the peach. Pours a slightly cloudy gold, 1 finger head that is just off-white. Aroma - hello peach - lots of peach, after sitting for a bit, there is a hint of noble hops and wheat. Taste - peach still apparent, but the wheat malt and yeast are providing more character. Finish is malt and flesh of the peach. Nice enough, but not particularly amazing.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle served in a pint glass (from 8/2011 notes)..
A - a cloudy light orange with visible particles in suspension and settling on the bottom. Looks thick. Has an off-white head with limited retention.
Aroma: Peach pie! Really strong impression of peach pie nearly hides some subtle notes of baked bread and light toasted grain. Smells very sweet.
T - Some sweetness in the taste, but a bit more tartness and some bitterness. Peach flavor remains, but becomes more like a liquor and less like a pie compared to the aroma. A tart wheat ale taste finally emerges in the finish and aftertaste, accompanied by canned peaches.
M: medium-to-full bodied; good carbonation level. Despite a near syrupy feel, there’s some dryness on the finish.
O - a very peachy ale: a good candidate for the official state beer of SC.
