Pche based on witbier and one of many examples of a trend fortunately going downwards since a few years. Cream white, sticky head, pinkish pale blonde colour, misty as an ordinary witbier. Strong sweet peach aroma, pineapple in syrup, lemonade, grain. Taste cloyingly sweet, very strongly dominated by peach juice and peach extracts, light wheatiness piercing through, thin mouthfeel with a watery finish. I sincerely hate these sweet fruit beers based on witbier and the fact that they are declining now, seems to demonstrate that the audience for them isnt as big as brewers seemed to think five years ago. That said, Ive had even worse than this.

Ik drink sowieso graag zon bier en dit is ook een aanrader. Zoet, maar niet te zoet. Lekker voor in de zomer

Cloudy pale gold colour; Good head and frothy; Strong lacing which did not stick to the glass and good carbonation; Mid to light body; Strong aroma of peach, apricot, yeast and quite malty; Strong but subdued taste of peach fruit and juice, very light vinery and a slight dry taste. No hop bitterness, very easy to mouth.

Comments: compare to Lindemans Peach, this is sweeter and less white wine after taste. Whereas Lindemans a fruit lambic, this is a fruit beer so I think it has done a lot to please, with room for improvement of course. As a summer refreshment? I dont see why not.

Bottle at home. Misty golden body with a creamy white invh thick head. Pungent peach nose initially which gives way to more wooden yeast notes. Sweet and fruity with a malty tail. A bit sharp to drink, light astringent tongue and hinting at metallic notes. Medium body but a rather short mouth.

Hazy golden colour with a white head. Both flavour and aroma are trule peach. So if you do not like not buy it. Otherwise feel free. It is a fine and fresh "beer" in the sun.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 5, 2012
330 ml bottle. Golden and hazy. Tall white coarse head that clings to the glass. Acidic lemony aroma. Dusty. Fruity flavours with the peaches coming through in the aftertaste. Sweet peaches. Malts are definitely there, with a light and sweet presence. Medium-bodied, but very drinkable. A little sweet, but thats fine.

330 ml bottle. Hazy orange body with a creamy white head. Aroma of peaches and nothing else. Flavor is mostly sweet peaches, or more specific like a rather neutral wit or blond with a big dose of peach-syrup. Served ice cold, as recommended on bottle this might feel a bit refreshing, at least it is pretty heavy carbonated and there is no real off flavors (if you dont consider peach syrup to be an off flavor!). Frankly I dont see the point at all with this, if I wanted a soda pop I would by myself a soda pop not a novelty beer. Probably made for tourists that dont really like beer but want to bring home a crazy souvenir from Brussels.

En noe udefinert smak, fruktsyre og sdme. Kan sikkert funke som trsteslukker om den serveres p is.
