Bottle at Per’s Almost gone tasting from Capones. Yikes Clear golden pour with a faint white head. Oxidized syrupy peach and booze aroma with some caramel, almost like a peach cough medicine, mild carbonation and sticky. MartinT (10037) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 31, 2017
My Bottom Line:omhper (25570) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 24, 2017
Oxidized peach-flavored cough syrup doesn’t leave much room for caramelized cereals and fruity tartness in this trainwreck of a strong ale.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the misty pale amber.
-This is too sweet and frail to be of any interest to me.
-Drinkability is really low.
-Alcohol is well hidden.
Bottled at Ottawa gathering. Clear golden, small head. Peachy caramel aroma. Very sweet with full body and rounded mouthfeel. Syrupy peach and caramel. Not good. Lubiere (14133) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 24, 2017
A golden amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, oxidized biscuit malt with light peaches, light bilous notes, so-so. In mouth, sweet caramel malt with light peach, light mineral notes, grassy hops, bad. Bottle at Per’s Almost gone tasting, March 2017. UDBeernut (2883) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - DEC 31, 2016

Bottle poured a clear orange hue w/ a big creamy off-white head diminishing to a lasting cap. Oct 2013 bottling, enjoyed July 2016. Light dried apricot and peach aroma. Initial flavor is moderate to bold sweet w/ a light bitter finish. Tastes are peaches, brown sugar, and a faint cardboard from oxidation, which I note but won't ding the score as 3 years is a long time for this style. Full bodied.

Bomber. Pours copper with a beige head and sweet fruit aroma. Taste is sweet as well, with peach notes along with fruits, caramel, and jam leading to a sweet, caramel and peach finish. jjgmd (2227) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - APR 23, 2016
Pours a dark rusty cooper color with a beige head. Nose is very sweet and fruity . Taste is fruity with some alcohol and canned peaches....syrupy and molasses like. Finishes on the same sweet fruity tasting notes . Fair at best !
Quaff Score 7 / 10 MetalNHopHead (2130) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - FEB 1, 2016
My bottle of Peach Grand Cru was bottled November 5, 2014 and had an ABV of 12%. You definitely cannot fault Great Divide for skimping on the peaches here. Lots of stone fruit aroma and bread-like yeast on the nose. Appearance is hazy, relatively heady, and dark orange. Tastes like fruity sweetness and Belgian yeast. Carbonation is still pretty lively even after the passage of more than a year. This is a lovely beer, but with the fruit juice, malts and the high levels of booze, it flirts with being cloying. Too sweet for me to have again, but a well-executed beer. Would be right at home with some mascarpone cheese. tderoeck (10002) - Gent, BELGIUM - JAN 28, 2016
