Peaches initially leap out from this beer with a sugary, candylike quality. As the aroma opens up, some spicy/peppery yeast character and grainy/bready malt join in. The flavor continues the peach-first theme, buttressed by apricot and tangerine notes. The fruit is supported by bready malt with just a hint of peppery, spicy yeast character. Low hop presence allows the fruit to shine, but the underlying beer has a deceptively fi rm malt character that integrates well with the added fruit. This beer will appeal to both novice and sophisticated beer drinkers though for different reasons.
