Peach Brandy Barrel Exemption
Taxman Brewing Company
A Note on This Beer
I read a magazine article a while back called “Why You Should Be Drinking Brandy.” Shattering my belief that brandy was just for old men sitting in front of fireplaces surrounded by classic literature, the article revealed this after-dinner spirit is filled with antioxidants and sense-awakening flavors.
Thing is, I personally prefer beer.
But ever since I found Taxman Brewing's Peach Brandy Exemption Belgian Tripel, I've known exactly what those magazine people meant!
See, the GABF medalists at Taxman added real (and antioxidant-rich) peaches to this crisp, dark golden brew before aging it in Brandy Barrels for 6 months.
These esteemed spirit tinkerers have given us beers aged on everything from Bourbon to Mezcal before, but their Peach Brandy concoction is a sultry, flavor-layered sipper that I just don't want to put down.
I'll bet you’ll also want to pour this 9% ABV treat into your most elegant glass and kick off your brandy-beer tasting the right way. Letting Peach Brandy Exemption open up before sipping will loosen deep, whiff-worthy orange peel and stone fruit aromas.
As for when it actually hits your tongue — just like a smooth sip of brandy, this boozy brew reveals more depth when it’s allowed to linger. Nectarous peach and apricot flood through, punctuated by lemon zest and coriander. Whispers of oak and orange cognac remind of its Brandy Barrel past.
Now, Taxman beers like today’s limited-edition Peach Brandy Exemption typically only leave Indiana through Tavour. So, make sure you snag your stash of this A-Class, after-dinner brew now and make your official foray into the Brandy bourgeoisie!

Very nice, as always from Taxman. Not a lot of peach, but still a really nice barrel aged triple.
Really good flavors, I buy it when I see it!! There is a ton of head on it though
Very sweet and peachy
Amazingly peachy with a strong brandy taste as well.
Can tell it was brewed with care, but the flavors were absolutely not for me. Brandy notes were a bit extreme.
Wonderful for peach lovers! Strong flavors, and wicked ABV. 4/5 because it should come in a boomer. Haha
Nice triple with hint of brandy barrel.
A good drink but not your everyday....aiiiiight
Tastes scarily close to hard alcohol, very weird
Peach and brandy forward, I'll keep ordering it whenever it comes up
Surprised everyone who had a taste. In a word, Delightful.
Light peach on the nose. Brandy and tripel in the mouth. Nice, but not Taxman's best.
Smooth and balanced.
The peach and brandy notes really made this Belgium tripel an engaging experience. Made me wish I had added more to my order.
Good peach notes. Strong with esters.
Woah I really like this, great peach brandy flavor. I actually didn’t think I was going to care for this one that much
Amazing peach flavor and aged quality.
I have to say I really adored this one. And maybe it might not rate as highly if it was priced like a lot of Belgian Tripels, but this was lo cost, smooth...and reminiscent of peach brandy...but in a good way. If it wasn’t for the 9% ABV this would be one of my favorite new sippers this year.
Tie between the peach flavor and the alcohol burn. With banana esters and a brut dry finish. Interesting, but I don't need more, unless I want a quick buzz...
A little like drinking peach flavored cough syrup. So after letting this warm up, the flavor was much better.
If you want Brandy I a can with peach notes, this is it. At 9% you better share. If not, drink it while you sit down in your most comfortable chair.
Peach brandy does not disappoint
Good flavor, very strong
Not really my thing. Kinda like drinking syrup.
I was so ready for this to be my favorite beer ever. I mean, come on, Belgian Tripel and peach - two of my three favorite tastes together - what's not to love?!? Turns out the peach is stronger than I'd prefer (yes, I actually typed that phrase) and when combined with the 9% ABV, the flavors are out of balance.
I was hoping for more. It’s not a bad beer but something throws it off.
This thing hit hard! In taste for sure, but also in feel. I almost wouldn't believe it's a beer based on taste bit had a strong brandy opener with a nice peach finish. This is the first beer I've tried through Tavour that I wish I could order consistently
Too much fake peach flavor. Great base a hint of oak vanilla!! Good late summer beer!! Not to heavy!
Fantastic. Peach is right up front above the grains and spice.
The peach and brandy notes work really well together.
interesting. barrel, peach, and a little bite. good stuff.
Better than I thought it would be! well balanced.
great Tripel and I like the added peach flavor
it was ok , i like the in your face flavor
the peach brandy on this was awesome. I felt like I was eating a perfect peach. glad I have one more but wish I had gotten more
the peach and brandy come through very strong, which is a good thing for me.
the peach hides the tripel a bit too much for me.
a little too strong tasting for me. tastes like I’m taking shots of brandy with a splash of peach beer.
