Drink of the Week: Blue Moon First Peach Ale

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Blue Moon has a beer for every season — and then some — but its peach ale is particularly spot-on. Reportedly designed with warm notes for cold days and zippy peach notes for the warmer, this brew is mishmashed Iowa weather in a bottle.

EXPERIENCE: This pale wheat ale has a fun, dark peach color, and it tastes like a shandy finally got its life in order, matching the sweet taste of the fruit with the warmth of coriander without being overpowering or goopy, though I’d reach for something else if you want “beer.” First Peach Ale is really more of a bottled fuzzy navel cocktail. 

ADVICE: Enjoy cold from the bottle or in a tall glass (to experience the colors). The ale matches well with a nice meal of any sort and can also serve as a good starter for the night, but beware: after the third bottle; you’ll struggle to distinguish anything but the taste of coriander. Enjoy in tasteful moderation.
