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

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.

22 oz bomber. Pours a slightly cloudy light orange gold color with a medium sized off white head. Aroma of fresh peaches, light malt, hops and wheat. Taste dominated by peaches with hints of wheat and light malt.

Bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA, and poured into a Terrapin mason-jar-ish thing. I heart new release glassware. Pours a clear amber with a medium sized creamy head. Good head retention. Aroma of tart and sweet malts with some faint malts. The taste is peaches, pith, vanilla, pale malts and a bitter hop finish. Medium bodied.

On tap at the Nook. Pours copper with little to no head and no lacing. The aroma is definite peaches, some wheat, bread, and earthy hops. The flavor is very sweet up front with a little bitterness in the middle and finish and a long sour aftertaste. The palate is light to medium, bubbly and lively, and a little acidic. Overall, this is a well done peach beer, with a distinct peach aroma and flavor, and even mouthfeel, but not overwhelming.

Bottle at Coffee District. Semi sweet beer with a good amount of peach aroma and flavor. For what it is, a peach flavored beer, it’s pretty spot on.

22 oz bomber. Pours a hazy orange with no head to speak of. Aroma of light peach, wheat, earthiness. Flavor is basically a decent wheat ale with some peaches thrown in. Nothing overpowering, but very smooth and tasty. No hint of the alcohol.

Orange pour with a very subtle haze, good retention. Aroma is peach, hay, and slightly floral. Tingly carbonation up front, medium body, low alcohol warmth. This one is surprisingly bitter all the way through which unfortunately hides the sweetness of the peach and malt. Finishes dry. Expected better at this price point and following on the heels of the greatness that was "Depth Charge".

The pour is mostly clear with just a slight haze, under a tall tightly-knit head of off-white. The aroma is, well, fresh peaches. The flavor is watered down peach nectar. This needs more peaches.

Bomber from Ale Yeah! Smells like peach, tastes like peach. It’s not too syrupy which is okay. Palate is medium, probably too dense for a peach beer. I love the description and title. Unfortunately, I just can’t make myself get into peaches. Perhaps if there were less peach flavor and more beer-like flavor I could get into it. Recommended for fruit beer lovers.

I love peaches, but I’ve heard they’re hard to brew with. The aromas get lost in the beer. One brewer even told me people often add apricot to peach beers to make them more peachy. Whatever happens, peach beers that don’t lose the peaches end up smelling like peach-flavored candy more than peaches. Unfortunately, Peaotch is on of those beers. No other flaws, but it is a very mold beer.
