3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Yard House Houston. It pours a clear, dark amber to light brown body and a finger thick, dense off-white head. The aroma has a touch of dried grass, along with lots of apricot sweets. A faint spiced hint too. It’s quite sweet on the palate, lots of apricot flavor, some caramel and a little bitterness and spiciness. Medium body, soft and pleasant carbonation and a short fruity finish. A decent one, but it fails to give me the Christmas spirit. 131114

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Roseville, CA. Pours ruddy amber with a foamy beige head. Unusual nutty peach aroma. Sort of like somebody baked a cake? Med + body/frothy carb. The flavor is passing strange. There’s a lot of bitter nut oil, and there’s a lot of peach. I have never tasted anything like this. These guys are insane. The finish is like sucking walnuts - ok like sucking pecans. Pretty darn astringent. These guys are insane. I’m not sure I like the flavor - but I’m rating it like I do. These guys have driven me insane.

Damn mar you didnt tell me how cool this beer way. I didn’t read the label and was expecting another ho hum xmas beer. Damn the peaches and pecans jump out at you and say hello with gusto! Nice amber pour. small head. Peaches are everywhere on the nose and the tongue with slight pecan hints and the flavor has a very slight bitter finish. This was a fun beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft… Beautiful, clear ruby ale with a brief, white head. The aroma is a swirl of caramel, peach and citrus fruits. Medium-bodied and creamy with tingly carbonation. The flavor is balanced nicely, but caramel and medium-roast malts are the highlights. Finishes malty, toasty and caramely, but fairly crisp at the same time. Better than expected.
