It was one of the 13 brews to be released in 750 mL bottles as part of the Imperial Beer Series. Described as a high gravity golden ale fermented with lactose and fresh peaches, Joe Short used this eloquent bi-line to describe the beerâ€™s flavor profile: â€œCream softness fused with the delicacy of Prunus persica.â€ We used a half pound of real, fresh peaches and approximately 1.5 ounces of milk sugar for every gallon of beer produced. We hope that you enjoy the return of Peaches & CrÃ¨me. Peaches & Cream (8.3% ABV, 45 IBU) is a high gravity golden ale brewed with lactose and fermented with fresh peaches. Pouring a light amber color with a slight, off-white head, the nose is dominated by peach tartness. On the palate, that tartness is softened with the addition of the milk sugar to simulate a flavor profile very true to the much-desired dessert.
