A very interesting choice to put out a winter seasonal with peaches. This pretty brew pours a dark slightly reddish brown capped with a firm rocky beige head. Long before the beer reaches your lips, fresh peach aroma leaps from the glass. While the aroma is one-dimensional, the peach essence is bright and fresh smelling. Medium bodied, there is a solid light caramel malt backbone here. The peaches are way in the forefront throughout, but but a hint of hops appears in the aftertaste lending some balance to this otherwise sweet entry. Not cloying, this brew might be more appealing on a bright summer day lazing by the pool.

Appears to be a normal dunkel to the eye, medium brown, medium off-white head. Aroma is very sweet, very peachy, with also some raisin and some other berry smells. Flavor is also very sweet, cloyingly so. Again quite peachy and fruity, a little bit of spice, and what appears to be syrupy malt sweetness, but that could just be the peach interacting with the malt. Palate is average, carbonation just a bit harsh. Overall not very good. Way, way too sweet.

Amber with a tan head. Peach aroma. Malty flavor with sweet peach. Didn’t pick up pecans. Very different.

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 it’s not the same ol’ thang.

piscator34 (2534) - 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 (1136) - oxford, Georgia, 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. I’m not getting much of the ’wheat’... maybe a bit on the back end but it finishes kind of bland and meh.
