Pops open with a military thud. Pours nearly opaque orange-gold with orange-red highlights; it looks, probably not accidentally, like a peach. two finger white head. Smells peachy--the bees knees--but like the musty peach you get from certain Saisons. Theres a touch of spice in there, and some very Belgian yeast hiding beneath it all. Flavor is generically fruity, more lemon and apple than peach, with touches of spice. A bit sour in the middle. I get some peach just before the short, uninspired finish. Good beer, but I thought almost $20 would get me a little more...oomph.

Bottle: Pours a hazy gold with a white head. Aroma, lemon, tart, some bready yeast, and some slight funk. Flavor, yeasty, spices, lemon some slight funk. There was a light sourness, did not notice any peach at all. Tasty, but nothing special.

Light aroma with some hints of funk and a light citrus smell. The body is amber with moderately high carbonation. The palate is medium. Taste is lightly sour with some fruity aspects--but I dont really get any peach specifically. Easy to drink and enjoyable, but forgettable at the same time.

thewolf (12328) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 16, 2007
Bottle @ Italian tasting @ YNWA, Kolding. Pours a muddy pale yellow with a small creamy white head. Aroma has peach, apricot and ginger. Lively carbonation. Flavour is a bit sour-sweet with apricots, peach, ginger and other exotic fruits. The wheat makes it feel much like a Wit, just a bit less creamy. But its fresh and dry and hides its 7 % extremely well. I could see myself drinking this a lot in hot Italy :o)

Provided by beastiefan2k @ Spuyten Duyvil. Poured a hazy light yellow color with a small white head. Leather and light fuzzy peach skin aroma. Yeasty. The flavor was a lightly fruity malt with some more peach skin flesh. Light body.

Another underappreciated beer. Had it once before at jjpm74s gathering in the summertime, it was brought over by a friend of his. I was impressed at the time and I am glad I got a chance to revisit it. It pours the most pale of golden colors, points just for being so pale yet still golden. Its murky, cannot see through it and yet its such a light color, just a "wow" special kind of appearance. Small head only keeps this from a score of 5. Aroma is very peach, not sweet artificial juice but the light sweet skin of the peach. Think tropical fruit without the sweetness. Taste is herbal-sweet-yeast. Mouthfeel is pillow-y on the cheeks, light, and so damn quaffable. Low, low bitterness, and a light milk sweet aftertaste. Nothing mind blowing, so not "Imperial" in any way but just so damn interesting and fun. If it wasnt for the price I would want to drink this all the time.
750mL @ Spuyten Duyvil, wine house glass.

Bottle at Spuyten Duyvil, Thanks beastiefan2k: Hazy light golden pour topped by a white film. Nose is full of apricot skins and perfumy suggestions. Has an herbal, not sweet fruitiness. Somewhat elegant. Fluffy light body, with a cleansing mild tartness overall. The peach presence is delicate and not sweet, and is accompanied by a subtle citrus component. Not much depth, but whats there is pretty nice.

Bottle at the Spuyten Duyvil, thanks to beastiefan2k. Light golden color. Some fuzzy peachy aroma with maybe a little lemon. Very smooth and soft mouthfeel. Flavor mostly of the peaches, with a dry-apple like sourness. Pretty good.

Flavoured with a fair amount of local peaches (from Volpedo), the fruit is quite distinct but not cloying in a beer that is not sweetish but pleasantly dry; some moderate sourness; quite enjoyable tough not "extreme"

Rating 3100, bottle and served in my Duval snifter: Despite setting well over a my month this bottle still shows a hazy golden hue with a fading white foamy head that left okay lace upon the glassware.

The aroma has a loving note of ripen peach over a layer of biscuity malt and light yeast funk. Some lemon zest, wildflower and cheese vapours as well. The taste is not as fruity a I would have figured, light tartness upon soft sublime layers of wet hay and fresh dough. The midsection has the yeasty and wheaty depth of palate. The finish is a tad medicinal but also has some complex woody (shall I say tannic) character. The mouth feel is sprite and refreshing, very drinkable for a 7% ABV beer.

I honestly liked this so much more than I thought would be the case and it is newsworthy because I am not a fan of peach beers. (I have no idea what the f**k you people want)
