jercraigs (11071) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 3, 2011
2011-01-03. Crisp dark golden yellow-orange body with a small foamy beige head that fades. Flavour is a bit muddled, sweet, bit of a fruity character, light bitterness, grassy touches in the background, light alcohol and hints at acetone. Aroma is a bit of a mess, hints of alcohol, acetone, and odd fruity weirdness. 4+ Smooth average plus bodied palate is under carbonated. Not awful, but a bit discordant and does not pull you in for more. Okay but not one of their better offerings unfortunately. Bottle from the LCBO Bayview, Toronto

650ml bottle from the LCBO. Sorry but I’m gonna disagree with almost everybody before me. My review can be summed up in 1 sentance: WHERE IS THE PEACH? It looks like a regular wheat beer, smells pretty average at best, and most importantly, the taste nor smell delivers on its "Peach" selling point. The St-Ambroise does a terrific job with its Apricot Wheat but this one is just not up to par. Lacks in both flavor AND nose.

Big bottle from the big Ontario chain we call a store. Fuzzy orange color and sweet wheaty aroma. Taste is basically Ontario-style hefeweizen with a dash of slight tart fruit over it. Ends with some sweetness and vanilla. Ha yes some peach aroma hovers over the end of the sip.

Bottle 650 ml
Aroma sweet tart character of wheat malt , light accent of peach. Creamy sweet sided top. 5+
Appearance slight haze on bright golden-amber ale , some lace.
Flavor and Palate : Medium bodied , silky , almost creamy in texture. All this followed by carbonation. Sweet sided with medium light scent of peach fruit. Some good weizen tartness on top. Still over all did not carry far.

Sad looking thing, orangey-yellow with not much head. Ever so slightly foggy. Aromas: sweet peach, banana, bit of yeastiness. Peach doesn’t come through in taste so much, just a bit of lingering sweetness on the finish. Other than the finish, it’s principally quite a nice hefeweizen (or kristall, as the case may be) type beer. Nice bright yeastiness/fruitiness

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2011 [3425-20101014] Cask. Generic peach soap aroma with a hint of banana. Hazy, medium orange body with a quick foamy white head. More generic peach and banana hints in the flavour. Medium body is a little bitter. Fair, the aroma is unfortunately overpowering. (5/3/6/3/12) 2.9

[3537B-20110103] 650mL bottle. Fruity grains aroma hints at peach or similar kind of fruit. Slightly hazy, light orange brown body with a quick foamy white head. Hay-like flavour has some grainy fruits throughout. Medium body. Fair, like the Horseshoe with an infusion of fruit. (5/3-/5/3/10) 2.6

A nice beer from Great Lakes, not overly sweet, peachy or wheaty but a good balance between all of them. Great Lakes beers just keep getting better and I feel like there is still room for improvement on this one. Nice and tasty but could use some more oumf.

Aroma is pretty standard for a wheat- maybe a bit sweeter. Taste is peachy wheat.

blankboy (7863) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 18, 2010
Draught at ’Great Lakes Project X Cask Days Edition’. Pours a very cloudy gold with a small diminishing white head. Mild sweet aroma is a bit sugary along with wheat, yeast and peach candy. Overly sweet flavour of wheat, peach candy, grain and some lemon. Medium bodied. Decent but too sweet for me.

Frothmeister (840) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2010
650ml bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a thin white head. Aroma is pure hefe-weisse, banana, clove, pink bubblegum, Gummie Worms, with a very thin undernote of peach. Surprisingly dry, with notes of yeast, dough, banana, with faint peach tang in the finish. Very clean and crisp. As a peach/fruit beer, this doesn’t really succeed. As a hefe-weisse, this is one of the better to be brewed in Ontario.
