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.

Bottle. Poured a darker orange color. No head to speak of, some sediment was present in the glass. Aroma was strong peaches. Flavor was strong peach and wheat aftertaste. Different beer. Good idea, but too strong of peaches.

jgb9348 (4714) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 6, 2010
Hazy orange coloured body with a copper glow and a very thin, fast-dying head. Aroma of strong aromatic peaches, a lot of caster sugar, oranges, a touch of malt and some offputting spices at the end. Medium-bodied; Assertive fresh peaches at first with some malt and sugars following behind. Aftertaste shows some chocolate and perhaps nutty bitterness coming right after the main sweet and fruity flavours - odd indeed. Overall, a good beer in the nose, but the execution isn’t flawless and it has an overwhelming chocolate and malt character that doesn’t show well to me, especially in this category. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in McLean, Virginia on 15-April-2010, sampled at home in Washington on 06-May-2010.

Cloudy apricot brown with a tiny white head. Scent is vanilla, peaches. Taste is sweet peaches and vanilla, just a bit tart. Not my idea of a beer.

DavoleBomb (1467) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2011
Poured into a weizen glass. 4.0 A: Hazy light orange color. Creamy base, frothy topped head has good retention and leaves lots of lacing. 4.0 S: Oh boy are the peaches forthright. The only issue is that it seems very artificial, like the peach ring gummy candy instead of real peaches. Still highly enjoyable (those gummies are awesome). Too a much less extent, there is the wheat base. 3.0 T: Nothing special here. The peach that was so apparent in the nose barely shows up in the taste. The wheat, however, comes through just fine. With some refinement, this could be a very good and unique beer, but right now it’s just okay. 3.5 M: Medium body. The body’s a bit thicker than the style would like and the carbonation is a bit low. 3.5 D: I imagine this would be good on a hot day, but some others would be better.

Pours a hazy golden copper. Peach aroma is intense, so is the flavor. Not my thing, but if you like peaches you’ll love this beer.

DiarmaidBHK (3386) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2012
Bottle from total wine sterling. Pours apricot with a ton of white foam that though highly carbonated doesn’t leave a lot of lacing. Definite peach notes on the nose. A get a hint of the peach on the tongue but it fades quickly leaving a rather thin mouthfeel and watery finish.

pushkinwow (1999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 8, 2012
12oz bottle from 1st local haul. Love the name of the bottle...makes me think of "How I met your mother". Very hazy pale orange with a nice slightly off white head. Lots of peach (sorta reminds me of the fuzzy sour candy) with an equally huge dose of apricot and eventually a bit of wheat. High carbonation, mild body, acidic, lots of apricot, becomes dry with a hint of sourness. Interesting.
