While drinking this I kept thinking it tasted like an unusual fruitcake. Peach and pecan? Yeah, I guess that would do it. A bit syrupy sweet for my taste but at least its not the same ol thang.

piscator34 (2374) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 2, 2011
Bottled sample. Amber in colour with moderate carbonation. Somewhat bizzare fruity aromas of peaches, vanilla noughat, caramel, and malt. Lots of sweet peach in the mouth, along with some pale malt, herbs toasted nuts and earth. Slightly tart and a bit bitter. Medium bodied with a hint of residual sweetness. A bit of an odd one, but probably not bad if you like peaches.

Hangover (1124) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - NOV 30, 2011
Copper-garnet pour with a rocky tan head. Aroma is fruity with a lot of peach and some candi sugar type sweetness. Medium bodied, big carbonation. Flavor has a lot of peaches and has a syrupy mouthfeel. Im not getting much of the wheat... maybe a bit on the back end but it finishes kind of bland and meh.

cbfobes (2881) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2011
Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a clear dark amber with a sweet and malty aroma with some spice, the flavor seemed a little off to me, some malt and caramel with a slightly fruity finish with spices, seemed like there was metallic notes coming through as well, wouldnt track down again by any means.

I guess I dont get the infatuation with mixing fruit into beer... Actually thought this was going to be your normal seasonal beer but after the first taste was really put off and wondered why. That was until I read the label and saw peaches...peaches???
