12oz bottle. To be fair I’m not a fan of peaches period, especially in beer. Almost astringent flavor and aroma - the pecan is there but the peach dominates. Bleh, not for me.

What do they call this, a transition beer? Anyway, pours clear and ruby-colored with a decent head; the aroma is sweet, fruity and cherry. The body is thin, sweet and, again, fruity, but now something approaching apricot comes through. Maybe this is made with Texas peaches and pecans, but the fruit tastes artificial to my palate.

Bottle pours a clear mahogany body with a creamy beige head that lasts the duration and deposits plenty of sticky lace. Aroma is fresh and canned peaches with toasted pecans. Creamy palate has a medium body and carbonation. Taste is peaches and pecans, a hint of wheat malt twang and some vague hop bitterness. Peaches and pecans combine for quite a unique flavor profile. Interesting.

Bottle 355ml
Aroma soft wheat based aroma with sweet fruity character. Plenty of peach , plums and bit of candi sugar, 6+.
Appearance clear dark amber with light tint of copper. Light fizzy tanned top.
Flavor and Palate : Medium full bodied. quiet sweet with its sugary character. Candi caramel in middle paired with cherry and peach fruit flavours. Slightly like traditional soda/ Good for what it is.

Aroma: The fruit is very apparent, but it’s cut with notes of cereal malts and possible nuttiness. Appearance: Clear red with a thin white head that all but disappeared. Taste: Medium sweetness, with a light bitterness and a light sourness in the aftertaste. Body: Light body, thin texture, average carbonation with a bitter finish. Overall: Not an unpleasant beer, and certainly drinkable. It’s not as candy as some other fruit beers, which I appreciate, but there’s really not much here. I’m just not blown away by this beer.

12oz bottle, 2010 batch. Pours clear copper amber with a one finger off white head that quickly recedes to a wispy cap and ring, not much lacing at all. Aroma is a bunch of funky peaches, I can dig peaches but these are just...well...funky. A lot of pecan as well, maybe too much as it ain’t playing nicely with the peaches and may be what is contributing to the funk. Also a bit of caramel malt. Good strength. Flavor is also loaded with the funky peach taste, particularly on the finish, pecans, good caramel malt backbone, bready, rather sweet. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, oily becoming sticky, medium carbonation. Not my cup of tea. I know they use real peaches and pecans but can’t help but feel that those may be boosted by some artificial flavorings as well. Doubt I’ll make it to the end of the glass...

Single 12 ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine and More in Huntersville, North Carolina. Beer pours a nice dark copper color with a lingering light tan head. Aroma is very noticeable with peaches and a little bit of malt. Taste is very, very smooth. This beer is outstanding, I will be buying a six pack of this once I get back to the beer store

Not a fruit beer fan but this is a solid holiday seasonal Peach and malt combo works perfectly. Very surprising beer. Cheers indeed!

jimmay (815) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours dark reddish brown in colour. Aroma and taste have an odd hint of peach, which surprisingly works. A hint of nuttiness too. Not bad, but peaches aren’t usually part of my holiday world. Would be dynamite with warm peach pie!

Served in a bottle from a local grocery store in Asheville, NC. Pour is clear deep brownish red amber with a small head. Strong aroma of peaches is clearly noted. Whiffs of Pecans also evident. It has a very sweet taste and off the bat makes me feel like a kid sucking on a new jolly rancher flavor. If you buy this beer, pass it off to your girlfriend, unless she is a beer fanatic. You are better off.
