Tastes like a slightly sweet wheat beer. Very nice balanced wheat beer but no peaches.

What temperature did you ferment at? I ferment that yeast at 65 - no higher.

Still a tasty, slightly sweet wheat beer. SWMBO says she can barely taste the peach - I can't at all. Fermented at just about 65 deg F.

This is a delicious wheat beer. SWMBO and daughter #2 do not like beer, yet like this beer. I've given it to several brewers who also like it a lot. I think the lactose adds a perceptible but not overwhelming sweetness and I wonder if the peaches added acidity that brightens the flavors. Still no real peach flavor but nobody is complaining and I'm running out. It does need some torrified wheat for better head retention next time around.

It was cool in the basement, well below 65F

Waiting for the wheat base to fully ferment before adding the fruit for a second fermentation. That gives those volatile fruit flavors a better chance to stay in the beer.

You know, I guessed as much after making my cherry cider and raspberry cyser. That's what I did - ferment it out first, then add the fruit. I will do it that way if I make a fruit beer again.
