Pours a dark amber with not much for head. Winter brew spice nose with a hint of peach. Smooth taste and a peach finish. Gotta love winter brews!

When I think holiday cheer, pecans maybe but peaches? And this beer has little nuttiness that I can find. The peach flag flies from aroma to the back of the tongue. Doesn’t have that fake fruit taste but I finished and wished there was some spice to mix things up.

Fizzy clear amber pour - nose of berry-ish fruitiness and dough, kind of resembling fruitcake - moderate acidity, but mostly sweet in aroma - very "candied fruit" smelling - flavor is peach-esque up front, but if I had not know it was peaches, I may have guessed cranberry - again, a hint of acidity - the second half is doughy, rather sweet, with some raisin and caramel, resembling a bock - this is the point where is starts to taste somewhat decent, but everything that came before detract from what is quite possibly a good base beer - eh, it’s okay.

Poured into small yard, a deep red brown with minimal to no head. Subtle peach aroma. Tastes like a Coors Dark (if one existed) with a hint of peach. Thanks, one is enough.

Dark, bronze-brown. Thin head dissipates very quickly. You can smell the peaches, and you can definitely taste them. A bit of nuttiness at the end. Body is thin and this has the same problem as a lot of fruit beers: it tastes more like fruit than beer. Not much body.

WOW! I was absolutely blown away. It’s a dark wheat ale brewed with pecans and peaches...w/ malted barley and wheat. My new favorite Holiday beer!

bottle. Pours a dark brown to black with a tan head. Nose is strongly of peach with a hint of nuts. Like a peach dreamsicle. Taste is also very peachy with spices and faint nuttiness. Mouthfeel is medium-thin.

12oz btl form a sixer shared by funky brewster. Pours a clear copper with a white head. Big peachy aroma, very sugary and koolaid fruity. Crisp light bodied mouthfeel. A lot of peach, not much pecan, and not much wheat. Not a bad session beer but not much going on otherwise.

Bottle. Peaches, light sweet malt and lightly nutty. Decent, drinkable fruit beer, but not much character. "Bitch Beer"

Bottle: The aroma consists of peaches, pecans, and light butterscotch. It pours a transparent copper with a small off-white head that quickly fades to a thin film. The flavor starts with lots of pecans. The finish has light peach and butterscotch. Short of being tart, I rarely like peaches in beer...and like butterscotch even less. Light bodied with mild carbonation.
