Pale yellow color. Fruity aromas of ripe peach, freshly baked bread with salted butter, and ripe melons with a satiny, bright, effervescent, sweet light-to-medium body and a sleek, captivating, medium-length peach cobbler, dill aioli, cucumber tea sandwiches, and yogurt with granola finish. A sweet fruit-beer packed with fresh, pure peach flavor.

Fruit beers are ales or lagers to which fruit has been added in order to impart flavor or color. The degree of overall flavor and aroma will vary in these beers in relation to not only the fruit utilized, but also to when and where fruit was added during the brewing process. These beers are highly individualistic, and allow brewers great creativity in their formulations. While the more common fruits used by brewers include cherries, strawberries and blueberries, many examples of fruit beer are readily available including coconut and kiwi to name a couple. Given the variation possible in this category, there are no established standards for appearance, aroma or flavor. Instead, beers in this category are defined by pleasing combination of the beer’s elements, overall drinkability and balance of fruit and base beer flavors and aromas. Noteworthy examples of this style include: New Glarus Belgian Red Wisconsin Cherry Beer, Samuel Smiths Organic Apricot Ale, Unibroue Quelque Chose and Stevens Point Whole Hog Raspberry Saison.
