2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear hazelnut brown with a thin head. The aroma is quite interesting. The fruit is quite prominent, and smells like raspberry to me rather than peaches. Under that is a rich malty aroma, and a nuttiness that must be the pecans. Flavor is a bummer. Itís lightly sweet and bitter. Not much else going on. Just tastes like fizzy water. Very medicinal aftertaste. This is a well intentioned beer gone wrong. I canít recommend it.

Pours a slightly transparent brown, with medium sized off-white head. A fruity yeasty aroma, peaches and light fruit coming through. Great aroma. The body is small. Flavor is pretty good, some fruity peach coming through with some nutty bitterness on the back end. Not much pecan. Refreshing.

Bottle: Pours a dark amber color with light head. The nose is bright and sweet with roasty malt, lots of peach, light nutty caramel and a chewy melanoidin umami fest. Sweet tangy malty flavor and a nutty finish. Nice balance and enjoyable maltiness. Tastes great to me right now but still seems a little husky.

Beautiful color here and the nose puts the peaches right there for you without being too strong. The flavor is a little less pronounced. Iím not sure where the pecans are, but I donít explicitly taste them. Pretty solid overall effort although there is nothing particularly holiday about it.

Just a nice brew with a hint of peach and nutty flavors from the pecans. This is a great beer for get-togethers in the holiday season.

(draught) clearish red brown with lasting creamy head. Nose of plastic, apricot, peaches and metallic funk. Taste of nuts, artificial peaches, earth and finishes creamy.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a big fluffy 3 finger tan head. Body is dark brown in color with lots of bubbles rising. Head retention and lacing are above average
Aroma is of tons of sweet peach. There is also some malt in there but the main scent is very fruity, almost like candy
Flavor is sweet but not overly. Fruity, juicy peaches with some of the yeast flavors of a dunkelweizen. Lightly toasted malt is also there with some dry pecans at the end. Hops are pretty non existant
Mouth feel is lighter than most winter seasonal. Carbonation is right in the middle. Wish head would have stayed longer
Overall this is a very good beer. Definitely one of a kind. The aroma and taste of the peaches really make this beer. The pecans dont play a big role but I like it that way. Wish this beer was available all year

12 oz. bottle from Plaza Liquors - Pours a clear deep mahogany color with a 3/4 finger thick light tan head. Light stringy lacing. Aroma is peaches. Iím not a peach fan, but I do like the aroma of this beer. Flavor is peaches and pecans. Wow! It doesnít taste half bad. Light to medium body. No unpleasant lingering aftertaste. Nice.

Great peachy aroma. Doesnít really taste like beer, tastes more like a fruity peach drink. Watery body with a red pour. Decent beer at best, but a good fruity holiday drink.

reddish brown "caramel added" coloring, pours a decent but quickly disappearing head. can smell the peaches a mile away. watery body without bitterness, tastes like peaches with maybe a whisper of a fatty pecan taste. the old dunkel was much, much better. probably wont be buying this again, but i suppose itís decent if you really really like peaches.
