3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The appearance has an extremely clear chestnut color with a large off-white head that fades quickly, and the aroma blends peaches, wheat, pecans, and caramel malts. The taste is heavy on the peaches lending itself to a mild sweetness and a slight sourness, and the palate fuses a slick texture, medium body, soft carbonation, and a short yet sweet finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can- pours amber with a small medium off white head. The smell is very fruity. Does not remind me of the holiday too much. I think the peach taste is captured well. Bitter and sweet but missing the nuttyness. It reminds me of peach ring gummies. Carbonation runs till the end of the sip. Not too bad. It is a unique beer but not for the Christmas holidays, in my opinion.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours ruby brown with a two-finger white head. Aromas of peach and grapefruit; dried fruit. Itís actually somewhat reminiscent of fruitcake. Flavors are subtle--peach, dried fruit, raisin; slight nutty notes. Finishes dry with a mild hop bite. Mouthfeel is light and peppery; highly carbonated. This is not a terrible beer, but itís fairly underwhelming.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Lagunitas mason jar
From: BevMo in Mission Valley (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $14.99 for a BevMo variety 8-pack (w/ BevMo card)
Purchased: Dec. 31, 2013
Consumed: Jan. 9, 2014
Poured a brownish murky color with two fingers of khaki tan head. Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Good amount of circular foamy lacing along the sides. Good retention on the top all the way down.
Smelled peach, raspberry, grape juice, blueberry honey and dark apples. Reminded me a bit of the Quaker oatmeal variety pack that I used to mix and match when I was younger.
Tasted more like a Dunkelweizen than the smell. Got peach, blueberry, grape juice, juicy apple and maple pecans.
Medium-to-light body. Oily texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Long, smooth finish.
Not what I was expecting, but I enjoyed this beer. I may have overrated it a bit, but I would have it again for sure.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle, from Party Source. Best by 02/02/14. Clear red orange color, sort of brown hue. Thin off-white head. Decent splotches of lace. Big peach aroma, wow. Very unexpected and interesting, I didnít realize this was a fruit beer. Peach aroma is pretty pleasant and tasty. Good smooth, lighter cabronation. Lightly slick texture. Light to medium body. Easy to swig. Moderate sweet taste, lightly spicy. Pecan influence is very subtle, maybe a light marzipan type flavor. Some caramel malt, light toffee. Tasty winter fruit beer. Iím glad this isnít another winter warmer. An enjoyable change of pace, and a creative way to do a winter ale.

Pours a dark amber with light, off-white head. Aromas of citrus and sweet gum. Tastes of peaches, plums, and tangerines. An ok winter seasonal, but too much citrus for my taste.

Interesting and not bad. The combo of wheat and understated peach along with a decently balanced hop/malt mix. There is some substance here and uniqueness. From a pic6 at Tops.

Bottle shared with Tony. Pours a clear reddish brown with a tan head. Aroma of peach ring gummies. Taste is sweet with an effervescent carbonation and lightish mouth feel.

Poured from 12 oz bottle, reddish mahogany in color with a medium off white head. Malty caramel nose, with a subtle peach aroma. Sweet syrupy taste, kinda thick with light bitterness, and a touch of cola flavor.
