I have brewed this 4 times, the last batch with half strawberries and half peach. Never been a sweet beer to me. Just a massive berry aroma, and the tart berry taste. My wifey loves this brew!!

can you share more on what the peaches did for the flavor and aroma? This sounds like a nice addition.

Meh.
The peaches gave it the peach aroma, but almost muted the overall flavor. Not to mention they looked and felt like snot when I was cleaning them outta my glass carboy. Next time I will not reduce the strawberries nearly as much.
I usually use 6lbs of strawberries. This brew used 3lbs each of berries and peaches. I'm going with 5lbs berries and 3lbs peach next.

Have you considered using apricot instead of peaches? Wasatch brewery has an apricot hefeweizen that really nails a good mix of beer and fruit flavors. I've always wondered why they didn't go peach with it, but it's very sweet and as close to "peachy" as you can get without having used real peaches. Come to think of it I've only ever seen 1 peach lambic before (never tried it) but plenty more apricot beers in my travels. Perhaps there's something about apricot that lends itself better to pairing with beer than peaches? Just a thought.

If you ever get around to the actual brewing part, let me know! Ha my next brew will probably be the AG version if this. Should be just in time for spring.

Guys I was away working on my car and my wife rearranged the rooms in the house. My carboy was covered in a corner but when I just went to transfer onto the fruit to my horror my airlock was on the ground. If it fell when they moved it sat. would my beer be in trouble? I hope not because I have been waiting for this to get done. I went along and put in bucket and added fruit. What do you guys think about it?

I'd say you'll be just fine! How long had it been fermenting?
