750 brown bottle with no freshness date though states it is a summer seasonal.

Nearly clear, very pale yellow color. Bubbly with a lacing that stays. Peach skin, pits, earthy, faint yeast, tartness and faint pulp ... the peach character basically smells like an orchard. Spot on crispness for the style, body as well ... light but a bit fluffy. Uniform tartness throughout that does not take over the palate at any point. Dry though the peach character feigns some sweetness. Grainy, mineral, lemony, neutral yeast and water crackers show a bit of depth. Very dry and refreshing finish.

Perhaps not as tart as some of the originals but this one is very drinkable and with the peach character I am not reaching for some sort of syrup to be able to quaff it back. Very well done.

Poured from tap into a tall goblet. It's a lovely peach color that had been poured with a thin head. The beer produces a fair amount of lacing that dissipates fairly fast.
The aroma is all ripe peach. Quite nice.
The taste is sweet, ripe peaches with a following mild tart tatse.
The mouthfeel is medium and a touch sticky.
Overall, seemed an accurate to style and very tasty and refreshing beer. Well done.

Hazy golden orange body pours into a chalice with great effervescent head, fine speckled bubbles left behind as it settles down a bit. Aroma has pungent acidity, chalky yeast notes, and earthy peach pits with a bit of flesh evident of actual fruit. Flavor just think very tart and refreshing peach tea tannin notes with peach pit notes and dry acidity lactic fruit yogurt (maybe a Chobani). Dries the palate from every direction, I popped some Nexium earlier and I'm glad that I did. Effervescent well done carbonation levels carries this lively tart lower abv ale across my palate nicely, light to medium bodied with a bone dry finish. Overall impressed with the use of fruit so subtle where they used loads of real peaches in a classic German berliner weisse.

while I enjoyed the beer I did not get as much peach as I would have liked. perhaps the overcarbonation removed some of the peach, but overall I enjoyed the beer

Pale yellow hazy pour with a vanishing head. Plenty-o-carbonation. Finishing off the bottle some sediment cloudy up into, what a surprise, a peach nectar color.

Aroma is pleasant enough. Slight sourness and that's about it for me.

Taste starts out sour and tart. Some lemon acidity. Never would of imagines peach was here but my mind is there so let's go. Aroma of fresh pick peaches at a farmers market. And I guess I can imagine eating a not so sweet peach. But like I said about the aroma, tis pleasant enough.

Light and spritzy, fresh fruit soda water.

I served this on a wonderful spring Easter Sunday with the sun ashining and 70*F. Now, I started out drinking IPA's before this Berliner. And might I say this Berliner started out like a sour mess so I put it away. Trying it again I thought its pretty tasty and came to a conclusion that this style cannot be mixed with others or at least drink this first IMO. I appreciate the effort of hundreds of pounds of Michigan peaches added to this. But to be fair I really didn't get a lot of peach. Anyway, tasty nonetheless.

A: Pours a slightly hazy peach/pink color with a 1.5 finger white head on top with great retention and thick lacing.

S: A bit of peach up front, slightly sugary/sweet, some faint wheat, and just a touch of tartness.

T: Light peach and a bit of lemon, reminds me slightly of peach candy, slightly sweet and sugary. Some grainy wheat on the back end.

M: Light to medium bodied, high carbonation makes it a bit fizzy.

O: Light and easy drinking, definitely some peach there, but a little light for what I was hoping for. Would have liked a touch more tartness as well.

Thanks to Stephanie for this one. 750ml bottle into a Lost Abbey snifter.

Beer is clear goldenrod. 1 finger foamy white head with decent retention. Stringy lace that sticks close to the head. Average though the color is nice.

Nose is sweet. Peach, banana, yeasty, cane sugar, with a light lemon zest. Pretty aromatic and really enticing.

Opens sweet peach pulp. Light tartness that lingers throughout. Some lemon zest at the end. Finishes crisp white peach tartness. Slightly yeasty aftertaste. Really solid.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Lively and prickly in the mouth and accented and crisp going down. Finishes clean with a slightly lingering, mellow aftertaste. Perfect.

The first offering I've had from this brewery. Really solid overall but the price tag ($20) is a bit much for this Berlinerweisse. It'd be my go to if it was more affordable though. Definitely worth trying.
