750mL bottle poured into taster - thanks rob

Pours a light, hazy straw, peachy color with a froth of white head. Slim retention with a few wisps of lacing streaking the glass.

Tart, fresh and fruity in the nose. Peaches, juicy fruit and funky wet straw. Yeast with biscuit and a hint of fruit-driven sourness.

Peach juice with light fruit sweetness and funky tartness. A little thin and simple, with straw and grain malts, followed by a yeasty funk and soft spice. Mild dryness and peach fruit on the back end.

Lighter body, decent carbonation, juicy and thin on the tongue. Pretty solid fruit-based Berliner but there's some much better examples out there right now (ie - Funky Buddha).

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.

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.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Pours a clear orange until the sediment hazes it up. Large bubbles at the edges but not much else.

Smell - Peach is present, even dominant, although it's not a very strong aroma. Faintly grainy and almost no acidity.

Taste - More acidic, but definitely not that sour. Grainy and then peachy. Finish is grainy and has a decent peach flavor.

Mouthfeel - Grainy, hardly sour, medium carbonation.

Overall - Wish it were sour... Good peach aroma though.

3.03/5  rDev -19%

Poured a straw yellow slightly cloudy light colored beer, with a thick white fizzy head.

The smell is light and peachy, a touch tart.

The flavor follows the smell, a nice light fresh peach flavor with a bit of wheat and just a touch of tartness. Its not bad, but the flavors are very light, even for this style.

The mouthfeel is crisp with lots of carbonation.

Its just Ok, A bit underwhelming for the premium they are charging.
