3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shared 12 oz. bottle at a recent group tasting. Poured to a sampler with a clear, copper color, modest, off white head foam, and sparse lacing. The aroma was light malt, mid-fruit, candy sweetness, and a touch of caramel. The flavor continued the candy effect, added a little nuttiness, and only a hint of hop bitterness. On the light side of medium for body, and a rather thin texture. Nice bill of ingredients, but a little spice and heftier body would have made me merrier!

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Peach apple aroma. Reddish brown, clear pour, very little head. Sweetish flavor, slight bit of sour. Not very robust, but not refreshing either. Very little hops. Medium body, fizzy carbonation, not much of a finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ruby red body with a thin clinging tan head. Nice, albeit light aroma of toffee, malt, and peach tea. The mouthfeel is relatively light but very smooth. Overall, the beer is pretty sweet with just a touch of bitterness towards the end. Thereís not much in the way of peach flavor but I taste the pecans. Thereís also a note of toffee sweetness. Good seasonal beer that is easy to drink.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This beer had a clear ruby-red pour with dark hues at the sides, the beer made a two finger light tan colored head, effervescence was less than medium with a center stream, it left some small spots and fingers of lacing on the glass, there was no sediment in the bottle,
the aromas were peach and other fruit with some fruit and brown sugar sweetness, citrus and some bread in the background,
I thought the peaches and fruit dominated the nose,
there were flavors of bread, peaches, citrus, a little fruit and malt sweetness with faint spice in the background, and faint caramel,
the mouth feel was on the thin side,
this drink was mostly fruit and citrus with a little malt in the background,
I thought the fruit and beer blended well but nothing about this beer jump out at me.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 12 oz bottle. Pours a dark brownish-red with a quickly fading thing white head. Enticing aroma - lots of toffee, peach ice tea. Flavor is sweet and candy-like. Some peach notes, hints of toffee, light citrus, some sweet bready notes. Mouthfeel is a bit thin considering the flavor. Better than expected.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I donít know that I get a lot of peach character with this one but I can definitely taste the pecans. Nice complex brew this one. The peaches are on the nose but faint on the palate. Drinks almost like a nut brown style really. Tasty brew.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
What better day to drink this than the most gorgeous night of the summer, July 6th? The aroma strikes me as artificial but I absolutely love it: cherry, raspberry, medicinal, big strawberry pie...like something that is going to be artificially red colored to make you think itís fruity. The flavor isnít so great, with the fruitiness somewhat dampened with a dull maltiness, and it gets to be a bit sickly sweet. But still, itís very drinkable for what it is, and I loved the aroma the whole way through. Bottle.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark cherry-mahogany pour with a pillowy head that leaves nice lacing. The nose is fruity, of peach and tangerine. The same citric notes are found in the flavor, alongside dry malt. Not really picking up the pecan, but reminiscent of a nut brown with tart fruit. The finish is semi-dry and of mediocre nuts and dry-hopping. The mouthfeel is light with a flat palate and dull, plaid body. Nice try for the style, but a bit uninteresting all the way around.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Twist-off bottle. Always a good start. Poured into a Bruery tulip.
Pours a crimson color with a single-finger off-white head. A pretty good amount of spotty lacing and a light lace ring around the edges of the glass.
The initial nose brings me some red Twizzler, super-rope-type smells with quite a bit of sweetness and some cherry. Some bright peach is definitely there but Iím not getting any of that pecan. A bit of of caramel. Not half bad; Iíll be the first to admit that I was expecting this to be quite terrible.
The flavor has loads of Peach Jolly Rancher character and a lot of artificial peach character. Just overwhelming here. Honestly, Iím not a big fan of this. A bit of peaches and cream throughout with a bit of light sweetness. The feel is a bit creamy with a medium body. I canít really drink much of this. The peach character is fairly fake and quite overwhelming.
