An extraordinary fruit beer with a seductive peach aroma, tart and sweet, intense yet refreshing. Made with pale malted wheat, peaches, and natural peach juice in celebration of the end of the summer season.

On tap at Selins Grove. Orange in color, decent head. Sweet aroma of peaches. Damn! The taste is as if someone strained a hundred peaches of their juice and poured it into my glass. Beautiful sweet peach taste but has a little tart kick to balance it out. Texture was creamy. Very easy to drink, a very unique beer. Awesome show of skills by a brewer to make this kind of beer.

Swolf3 (262) - Elkton, Maryland, USA - OCT 26, 2008
On tap at pub. Poured a nice glowing orange with small white head. Aroma is a little faint but like you are smelling a piece of fresh peach. Taste is like you just bit into a a juicy peach with a little spice and more peaches. Finished nice and tart which balanced out the sweetness. Enjoyed this a lot.

hopdog (11560) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2008
On tap at the Selins Grove Brew Pub. I was going to get a growler of this, but it kicked on my pour (at least I had the change to get some!). Poured a medium and hazy golden color with a small sized white head. Aromas of peaches with some citrus. Tastes of peaches (lot more than the aromas), citrus, and some spiciness. Started out sweet and ended in a nice peach tart finish. I usually hate peaches, but this one worked for me and damn, I wish I was able to get a Growler of it.

egajdzis (6105) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2008
Poured a hazy yellow orange color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of fuzzy peach skin, earthy yeast, and light citrus. Taste of citrus, earth, light pepper, vanilla, and tart peach in the finish. Thanks to miver for sharing the growler before the keg blew early last night!

3fourths (9137) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 26, 2008
Draft at Selins Grove. Cloudy hazed yellowish orange body with a white head. Spritzy lemon juice or lemon soda nose, slightly creamy as well, dried apricots and peach rind make for a nice natural tartness in the nose and tasted as well. Excellently crafted, better than expected. Medium body, spritzy, tart and a little bit creamy. Good stuff.

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - OCT 24, 2008
On draft at the brewpub. Light salted pale fruit aroma. Calm. Pours a hazed golden with a rim of white. Flavor is a little on the edge of bandaids and rubbery for me. A really tart, citric fruitiness clashes with some bubblegum and a whole boatload of bad sugar. This isn’t that good. Too sweet, too rubbery and too clashing. Bandaids, old peach juice, rubber and citric acid. Not pleasurable. There’s a thickness and a medicinal quality to this beer that is really off-putting.

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2008
Draft at brewery. Poured cloudy goldish orange in color with a medium sized sticky white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of fresh peaches, wheat, light citrus, with some nice saison funky notes. Taste comes in quite tart at first with tons of fresh sweet peaches, some citrus sour notes, wheat, farmhouse saison yeast and finishes smooth. Great body and carbonation. Very easy drinker. Selins Grove knows how to brew a great fruit beer.

kramer (5828) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2008
Draft pint at brewery. Pours a hazy gold body with a small wispy white head that settled to a thin film. Nice fresh peach nose, a little farmhouse funk, wheat, and yeast. A little bit of tartness. Nice tart and sweet juicy peach flavor with a yeasty bready wheat malt base. Finishes with a nice pixie stick like sugaryness, but it’s not overly sweet or cloying at all. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a soft texture and very fine lightly fizzy carbonation. This is really pretty nice, very juicy natural peach flavor. Reminds me of peach ring candies.

machfive55 (358) - Columbia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2008
Poured a cloudy orange color with almost no head. There is a very fruity aroma and the peach comes through with some citrus and and raison notes. This beer is very sweet, with a slight sourness to it from the peach and fruit character of the yeast. It is a very complex beer with maltiness, slight hopiness, peach, citrus and spiciness. This is not a crowd pleaser but a very unique sipping beer that would be an excellent compliment to salty foods. For a Saison/fruit beer, not bad, but not thoroughly impressed either.
