I used to drink a lot of this beer back in the mid 90’s when Spanish Peaks was it’s own company. 12 oz brown bottle. Poured a dark amber with a large foamy white head that faded quickly. Aroma of artificial peaches and crap lager underneath. Flavor was artificial peach and vanilla with a sour mash basic lagerish flavor undeneath. Got significantly worse as it warmed. Medium length finish. Medium body.

Strong candy peach aroma sugary sweet syrupy. Cloying. Pours a tea like color with lasting yellowish head Actually kind of taste like peach tea just not as refreshing. Muddled flavors. Don't blend well. Medium full bodied low CO2, sweet bitter finish. Drinkable just really not very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Clear copper, off white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy peach, moderate citrus. Taste is moderate to heavy sweet, peachy. Very peachy beer. Don’t know why the bottle has this labeled as an ipa.

Bottle pours hazy dark orange with a thin white head. Aroma is grainy, wheat, crackers. Flavor is watery, thin wheat, some thin peach notes. Eh.....

Pretty much what you’d expect from a wheat beer. Lots of peach aroma with wheat and sweetness. Pours an amber orange with a head that quickly dissipates. Taste is peach, wheat and pretty sweet. The finish is a lingering sweetness that begins to become slightly unpleasant after a bit. Overall, it’s not bad but not super great either. A brew I’d say is best in small portions.

DuffMan (6548) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 1, 2013
Bottle, shared with my wife. Deep amber with an average white head that fades quickly. Sticky sweetness with an estery yeast quality and a mild candyish peach note toward the finish. This comes across as a heartier almost Belgian-esque fruit beer with its higher ABV, its stickier palate, and it’s light yeast character. But it was still a bit much to finish a bottle this size, even between the two of us.

Pour is a hazy amber with a large white head. Aroma is just a sticky sweetness. No detectable peach. Flavor is peach at first then comes more sweetness. Not real good but these wheat beers with some artificail fruit flavor rarely are. It was cheap.
