AWS9 (682) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2009
On tap at Mill Street Brew Pub. Pours a radiant yellowy-gold with a slight head. Actually quite a beautiful colour, perfect for a fruit beer of this variety. Light, largely smooth, with a prominent peachiness and citrus extracts, plus some hop. Theyve found a very nice balance for a fruit beer with this one. Fruit beers struggle for me when they are overbearing in some sense.

[2275-20090613] Tap. Quite yeasty aroma with light doughy bread. Hazy, light brown orange body with a long-lasting creamy white head and nice lacing. Belgian yeasty sweet peach flavour has a long sweet finish. Medium body is a little bitter. Nice balance.

DerWeg (1628) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2009
The Mill Street bartend hands me a glass of lightly hazy off-blonde frothiness, and it smells of wheat malts with something naughty going on. The peaches (fruit fermented directly into the beer) express as over-ripe fruit and some body and sweetness, with a hint of residual fresh peach flavors. The feel is agreeable, the flavor sweet but generally refreshing. Totally summer style beer.

blankboy (7576) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 23, 2009
Draught at CEst What Spring Festival. Pours a cloudy yellow with a large lasting frothy white head. Decent lacing. Nice aroma: Yeasty, fruity and spicy. Flavours yeasty and citrusy along with some spices and sweetness. Average to medium bodied. Good stuff, I didnt get much (if any) peach but I still quite liked it.

jercraigs (10258) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 13, 2009
2009-06-13. Hazy pastel orange with modest white head and lace. (3+) Aroma of yeasty wheat, light peach and light musty notes. (6+) Flavour is quite sweet, odd fruity peach is a bit muddled and does not really invite me to look more closely. Average plus palate. Not as bad as some of made it out to be but I do not really care for it. On tap, at Mill St, Toronto

Sammy (11820) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2009
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a somewhat light peachy colour with a huge white head. It then smells bubble gum artificial fruity, about nothing is that sweet smelling.Taste is both creamy and light. Not finishable. Candy, almost soda-ish taste, with some harsh edges so it offers undesireable characteristics of both soda and beer.

HogTownHarry (6562) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2009
Draught. At CEst What Spring Fest. Cloudy yellow with a decent creamy lasting head. Aroma: all wit, no peche. Taste - standard wit, sweet and yeasty, mild coriander, and eventually ---- theres the peach; not much peach, but a light tang to make it different from any generic wit/hefe. Creamy, flat mouthfeel, foamy and ultimately very sugary - not bad, but way too sweet.

JesseM (1158) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 29, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2009 On tap at the Kick Off in Waterloo. Taps a hazy golden with a huge white head. Aroma is synthetic fruit and garbage malts, yeast, sweet. Flavour is WAY too sweet, totally unbalanced, a mess in fact. Very little peach, some dry yeastiness is screaming for attention but is drowned out by all the sweetness. Its like they added way too much bad candi-sugar to their regular Wit. I respect Mill St. and generally like their stuff, but this stuff is so pathetic and awful Im actually offended. Why not try a Berliner Weisse? Since Ive read many a brewer talking about how easy a style it is to do, and theyd totally get to corner the market on it given its the only example of it outside of Quebec, for this entire country, and it could be mild enough that you wouldnt have to worry about scaring off the apparently psychotically xenophobic Ontario beer drinker (not that those types would never touch Mill St. anyways). End rant. Worst Mill St. brew Ive had.

Appearance: hazed amber-gold brew with plus creamy top. Fine lace. 3+.
Nose: Good wheat aroma , rich , full grainy character , some fruity side to it.
Flavor/Palate : Medium bodied. Rich, sweet character with fruity flavours placed on top. Perhaps bit to sweet. Mild peachy ending. Interesting.
