Pours hazy light yellow with a big white head. Gushed a bit out of the bottle. Highly carbonated.
Smells a bit funky, but really just bland. Maybe a touch of peach, but no sour notes to speak of.
This is one of the most flavorless beers I've ever had. I get a touch of peach near the end before it devolves into a grainy lager flavor to finish. Absolutely NO sour or even tart notes to this at all and the peach is incredibly faint. I had the suspicion this tastes like something I had before and then it finally hit me. Slightly peach tinged Keystone Light.
Very light bodied with very high (even for the style) carbonation level.
One of the worst beers I've had in a while and a huge letdown after how much I loved Perennial at FOBAB. This tastes like a light lager and I've never had a berliner before that was this bad. Not remotely tart. Just a bad all around beer. Hopefully it was just a bad bottle and/or Perennial will start bottling their better stuff soon.

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.
