3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at ebf. Pour has a golden color and an off white head. Aroma has mild peach, light fruit, a hit of grains, and some faint ginger. Mouth feel is light and the beer is refreshing. Flavor brings out more of the ginger thing, real light on the peach, some tea, and some light grain. I was hoping for a lot more of the peach flavor to come through.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at EBF 2011. Reviewed from notes.
Pours a hazy peach color with a good white head and a bit of lacing, especially after a few swirls. The nose brings forward a good amount of bright peach character with some mild tea in the background. Slight spice, likely from the ginger. Flavor is dominated by peaches and a bit of sweetened malt. A bit of the tea is in the background. The tea affects the mouthfeel in a way I didn’t particularly care for, though it wasn’t too pungent. Overall, another really solid effort from Sierra Nevada, who had one of the best lineups of the fest.
Serving type: on-tap

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at EBF. Pours an orange body with a white head. Sweet peach with hints of tea and ginger. A bit incense like then a lush peach skin and juice like sweetness. Nice drying tea bitterness. Full body soft carbonation. Nice offering.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2011 Peach juice, not a lot of tea, certainly none of the tannins I was expecting. Pretty good, although I was expecting more of this, like a turbocharged SNPA just gushing with peach hops and bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pouring at the Saturday sessions of EBF. Pours a just hazed orange gold with a thin white head. Peaches, cream, toast, and fuzzy musk. Tea and toast. Big tea flavors, sweet peach notes. Tosat and bright with lots of warm yeast and toast. Sort of like a peach iced tea beer.
