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 ďSpikeĒ 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 wouldnít. Ludicrous, we know. OG: 17.1 Malt: 2 Row Pale, Munich, Victory, Wheat, Aromatic, Acidulated & Pilsner Hops: Willamette & Cascade Peaches: from GA & CO

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.

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.

22oz bottle. pours a clear orange with a small, stable, white head. nose of those sweet peach gummy rings. the palate is light with an airy, dry finish. the flavor of a pinch of salt and peach rings without the sugar coating. a perfect amount of peach flavor in here without being too sweet...but thereís always the kid in me that wants it to taste like a mouthful of gummy candy. mom, is there alcohol in this?

Very balanced compared to what other ratings say. Very smooth, crisp brew. The peach is very present but not overbearing. High quality offering from two GREAT breweries, worth the cash if you like fruit beers or if its 100 degrees out!

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 itís not overly sweet.

keanex (1289) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Poured into an English pint glass from a 22 ounce bottle with no freshness date.

A: Clear amber body with a thin off-white foamy head.

S: This smells sweet and peachy. Thereís nothing else really to say, the aroma is strong and fresh and reminds me of a nice day hanging out in the peach orchards. Very nice!

T: I wish I had saved this for Spring because this brisk night is not doing this fantastic beer justice. Clean malt profile blends damn near perfectly with fresh peaches making this a fantastic Spring or Summer day beer. I really enjoy this, thereís good balance and the peaches arenít overly done.

M: A bit flat, but it goes well with this beer, it makes me think Iím drinking juice. Thereís slight carbonation towards the end though.

O: This is an interesting beer and Iím glad it was made. Iím thoroughly enjoying it and Iím definitely picking up another for the Spring!

Aroma is malty with a strong overtone of peach. I love peaches! (My roots are in Georgia, though I was born in Canada.) It pours an attractive clear amber with a fairly thick, if not persistent, off-white head. Malty flavor has a strong peach component to it, though this does not overwhelm the flavor the way it did the aroma. The peach sweetness nicely balances the hoppy bitterness, making for a very satisfying flavor. Firm-bodied texture is quite fizzy, leaving behind a firm and persistent tingle and a malty, peachy flavor. Another great collaboration!

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

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.
