COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sometime around midnight in a city nobody can agree on, the idea for Terrapin and Left Hand to brew a collaboration beer was born. Peaotch is the third in the series of one-time releases between the two breweries. Terrapin Brew master Brian “Spike” Buckowski hosted Left Hand Brew master Ro Gunzel in Athens, Ga and late one night the two brewed up this dreamy ale.
Yep, we brewed a beer with Georgia & Colorado peaches. We tried to tell the peaches to get out of the way, but they wouldn’t. Ludicrous, we know. OG: 17.1 Malt: 2 Row Pale, Munich, Victory, Wheat, Aromatic, Acidulated & Pilsner Hops: Willamette & Cascade Peaches: from GA & CO

Bottle @ home. A touch hazy, attractive golden orange appearance with a small ivory head. Fresh, potent meaty peach aroma with some mild earth and floral notes. Medium bodied. Mild wheat malty, rich peach pulpy, fruity sweet, slightly tangy flavor with a lightly tart, peachy finish. Actually very easy to drink and not a bad fruit beer.

5000 (6178) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Bottle:   Deep hazy orangish straw, thin to moderate head, sudsy, spotty lacing.   Strong peach/apricot like aroma, but also very much artificial.   Smells like peach candy or a candle.   Don’t get me wrong, it smells very fruity, but also a little artificial.   On the tongue it is much more subdued.   The peach fruitiness is there, but its not a strong as the nose suggested.   It seems much more mealy on the tongue, and not as bright as the nose lead on.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes rather dull, with only a whimper of the fruitiness I got from the nose.   Certainly not a bad beer, but I was dreaming this would be the New Glarus of peach beers... but alas it was not.   Still enjoyable tho.   Thanks jabic for the bottle.

Draft from the Nook. Orange in the glass with a white head that settled to a ring and left good lace. Aroma and flavor of peaches with a wheat backing. Light to medium body, dry, and sweet throughout.

Beer meets peach. This brew showcases the sweetness and bitterness of the peach itself, nice aromatics and just solid overall. Not a huge fan of fruit brews...but thus is incredible.

drowland (5980) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - NOV 18, 2011
11/18/11. On tap. Not quite clear pale orange pour with a small khaki head that fades. Definite peach aroma, as well as floral aspects - it smells just like soap or shampoo. Slightly milder peach and floral flavor, not quite as soapy, with more pronounced lemon aspects. I guess I’m a little biased as I’m not a huge peach fan, but this just reminds me of soap. Meh.

tastybeer (1666) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - NOV 15, 2011
Draft at Kickbacks. Pour is darkish gold with a tan fizzy white head, decent retention. Aroma is big on peaches, bread, some floral hops. Taste is lightly sweet, very peachy, bread, light bitterness. Palate is soft, creamy, lightly bitter finish. Manages to very fruit without being watery like too many fruit beers.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2011
Bomber. The body is a lightly hazy, dark golden-amber color. Effervescent micro-bubbles feed a small, smooth, foamy head from beneath. The cream tinted froth tends to gather at the edges, leaving behind just a soapy wash that mostly rejoins the body. Aromas are saccharine and artificial, suggesting as much of Peach scented Tang as anything else. Sweet bread dough malt is in the base, layered with Fruit Loops, perfume, and some residual floral hops. Flavors mirror the nose, sweet and sugary, based in sweet dough and artificial peach. It tastes like there is some sort of artificial sweetener akin to Splenda or Aspartame in there. The palate sports a moderate body with soft, lightly tingly carbonation. Sugars coat the mouth and leave it sticky. Not my sort of thing at all.

ExpendableHero (742) - Florida, USA - NOV 9, 2011
Wow, I love this beer, probably because I love peaches. Hazy golden brew with a thin, white head. Strong aromas of sweet peaches. Tastes of some floral hops, and lots of fresh, juicy peaches. The hop profile does a good job in bringing out the peach flavor, and compliments it quite well. Sweet, fruit finish. Extremely crisp and refreshing. A true joy to drink, fantastic beer.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 9, 2011
Bottle from Midtown. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of peaches and fruity esters. Light bodied with semi fine carbonation. Flavor of pale belgian and wheat malts, countered by a moderate flavor of peaches. Not really that sweet, which makes this a bit more drinkable. Semi dry finish. Very simple, in a good way. Can pass for a dessert or session beer because it’s not overly sweet.

tennisjoel (1161) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - NOV 7, 2011
Appearance is fairly ordinary. Clear amber body with a thin white head. Aroma, however, is quite extraordinary. Quite peachy and fruity, very aromatic almost waxy like in a good way. Flavor is more of the same. This beer is kind of simple, but executed flawlessly, especially the peach component. A unique and enjoyable brew.
