Wow. This one is way too sweet. Weak palate, lots of peach - peach flavored dum dum peach- and some maltiness. Way too sweet for me but this makes a killer BBQ sauce.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2014 Aroma is strongly peaches. The taste is more weakly peach with a nutty and alcohol aspect. The fruit doesn’t overpower and is mildly bitter. Overall one of the better fruit beers.

Pour is clear deep brownish amber with a sticky thin skin of a light khaki head...smell is strong with peaches...I mean like those peach candies...the taste: not so much...cardboardy and slightly herbal peach juice...a little vegetal too...lingering slightly medicinal finish...interesting, but this beer just doesn’t make sense to me...

12oz bottle. Poured an amber color. Aroma of fruits. Kind of a weird taste but a good holiday brew. Strong flavor of peaches and hints of vinegar.

12 oz. Buttered popcorn, Buttered popcorn. Buttered popcorn. Wish I had a 90 minute movie to sit through.

bottle. Pours dark reddish brown color with modest off white, light beige head. Definitely some peach on the aroma, along with caramel, and sweet spices, slight bubblegum aspect. Flavor at first of a nut brown, with pecans and caramel, and the peaches showing on the finish for a nectary sweetness. Smooth, creamy. I was pleasantly surprised with this one. I wasn’t expecting much, but it’s actually pretty good, and quite unique. Although it is classified as a fruit beer the peach is not dominating or too in your face, it is nicely integrated. Being as cheap as it is, its not a bad deal. Cool.

(12oz bottle). Pours clear mahogany with off-white head. Aroma of ripe peach. Taste is sweet from the peach, but there is the backbone of the malt and slight bitterness. Medium bodied wiht slick texture. Finish is smooth with a touch of bitterness to remind you that this is a beer and not a wine cooler. I think they did a good job of getting a nice peach flavor in there without overpowering the beer. Not bad. It’s a nice change of pace.

12 oz, bottle, $1.50 at HyVee, Storm Lake, IA in July. In other words, last year’s beer. I’ll try to take any aging problems into account. Nice amber pour, then in my American Wheat glass, it’s a ruby/brown with a brief topper of foam. Smell has sweet peaches, almost a hint of strawberry and apricot, too. Very nice, not too sweet fruit smell, and I’m a guy who can find fruit beers tiresome in a hurry. Taste is a nearly equal balance of dunkel malts with fruit that’s hard to find. Skips the graininess of some dunkels, and maybe a fresher bottle or tap might show some weizen esters. I still don’t really know how pecans play out in a beer, but that seems to be the source of a slight bitterness that I can’t put to hops. I’m imagining this did in fact use peaches in the brew; most peach beers would rack onto peach puree and pick up a lot of sourness. But no sour here, just a nice mildly sweet peach note that makes this indeed a nice holiday beer for before dinner or dessert. I’ve had a couple southern beers with pecans now, and a few with southern fruits, all from Abita, in fact, and it’s interesting to see this as a new regional beer variation.

served in 12oz bottle. usually the peach flavor is in a lambic...but in this holiday beer its quite refreshing with a hint of nuttiness. honestly didnt think the peach would work but its not a bad beer. the color is yellowish and a decent head...i let it warm up and the peach was very pronounced.

AOF (306) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - DEC 10, 2010
Medium brown color, average off white head. Sugary malt nose with fresh brioche and a hint of fruit. Light to medium in body, smooth on the tongue. I was hoping to get more of the pecan out of this, but the peach steals the show. Great flavor without being overly sweet. I don’t normally think of Peach as being a "Christmas" flavor, but it works here.
