Peach Flavoured Beer
mrsflash; you should try some Meantime Raspberry wheat Beer, if you’re into fruity flavours. It’s not at all sweet; quite sharp, yet still fruity, without being sickly. Dunno if you can get it oop North. Sainsberg’s down here sell it as part of their ‘Taste the Difference’ range (at least, they did).
That Fruili stuff is too sweet though. Strawberries and beer don’t mix.
Some other wheat beers are qiute flavoursome, and less bitter than some British ales. Weihenstaphaner Kristalweiss (easy for you to say, RudeBoy..) is amazing; a slight hint of pear drops, but in no way sickly. Many wheaty beers have their own hint of something; cinnamon, banana, orange, etc.
I like wheat beer, me… 😀Posted 8 years ago
I’ll have a look next time in in Sainsburys. I had some cherry beer when I was in Belgium the other week which I liked, but this peach was a bit sickly. It wasn’t actually intentional, I just bought a few at the station in Brussels and didn’t realise this was peach.Posted 8 years ago
S’all a matter of personal taste. I have friends who can’t stand the raspberry one, and some who won’t touch wheat beer at all. Then you get yer bitter drinkers; really not my thing. And Stout; I quite like a Guinness sometimes, if it’s stored and poured propply, and a nice golden ale, or a Porter now and then. I find some of yer IPA’s a bit insipid/flat, although some are very tasty.
Good luck with yer beer-tasting quest!Posted 8 years agomamadirtMember

Vaughan-dirt sneaked a bottle of cherry beer into the trolley in Sainsburys last week – sadly he drunk it all before I had chance to try it 🙁 Said it was very sweet though.Posted 8 years agopiedi di formaggioSubscriber
Another vote for the Meantime Raspberry Wheat bear from sainsburys. The Raspberry is subtle and doesn’t overpower the beer (unlike fruili which is like drinking bad sweets) and goes down extremely well on a lazy summer afternoon. It is very drinkable and makes you fall overPosted 8 years agodruidhMember
Lots of fruit beer recipes are ancient. Then, of course, there are those flavoured with cinnamon, nutmeg etc – most of these pre-date hopped beers. Seems out forebears had a less narrow view of the world.

They brewed a drink lang syne,
Was sweeter far than honey,
Was stronger far than wine
If you’re talking about that Badger beer, I bought a bottle each of Golden Champion and Golden Glory.
Drank the Champion first and hated it.
Resorted to drinking the Glory when nothing else left in the house – and it was marvellous.
Would other beer buffs (drunkards) agree?Posted 8 years agomarsdenmanMember
Pop into the Riverhead at Marsden where Mrs MM has just got into something called Belle Vue – (i know, I know….) a foreign, cherry ale they only sell in halves.Posted 8 years ago
Not too sweet, and served cold, one heck of a nice slurp on a summers evening…..
Better still, pop into the Riverhead at the end of a ride…… if the Belle Vue does not tempt you, their range of home brews likely will 😀eviljoeSubscriber
Badgers is all good- they try some new things without letting the flavours overpower the beer. I had a bottle of their ‘Ginger’ beer the other night- lovely.
And yes, I am partial to the peach one too…
In NZ the spekes beer had a summer version with lemon in- gorgeous- do we have an equivelent here?Posted 8 years agoNickSubscriber
We’ve been conditioned into drinking homogenised beer for a couple of centuries, we’re getting better at more interesting styles but most people still drink Tetley, John Smiths and Carling. The Belgians have no such hangups (although their industry is under attack and there are stats out there that suggest most belgian ‘style’ beer is now made in the US).Posted 8 years ago
