I had to post this one in the IPA section and the fruit beer section. Measured OG at 1.065 before the peaches, 4# of peaches fermenting I am gussing adds 1-2% more ABV to the party. Final ABV > 8.00.
This beer is REALLY good. I like magic hat #9, but I wanted something a little more over the top. The wheat gives the beer a body and smoothness that I wasn't expecting, and a very tall thick white head to the beer that lasts until the end. First taste is of citrus/pine from the cascade giving away to sweet peaches on the finish. Very satisfying citrus/spice/peach aroma to the beer as well. I would have thought with the ramped up ABV there would have been some hot alcholol aroma or taste, but there is none to speak of. This is a dangerously smooth and tasty beverage. I will brew it again.
I know the hardcore may not like a beer with fruit, but trust me..this one has some backbone and is worth a try if you are in the mood for something different.
I don't think I would change a single thing on this recipe..it was a great success....I'll post a pick of the finished product in glass asap
