A: The beer is hazy pale yellow in color and has slight bits of sediments visible floating in suspension. It poured with a finger high white head that died down, leaving a thin film of bubbles covering the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of fresh peaches are present in the nose - just like if you were smelling a bin of peaches at a farm.
T: Very much like the smell, the taste is dominated by flavors of peaches and also has a very light amount of sourness.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is nice and peachy but is easy to drink because it is hardly sour and this masks ut any sweetness from the peaches.

Served in a stemless snifter.
Thanks to homebrew311 and Bellabananas for sharing this bottle!
Just like RisGoop, I've had this before on-tap, but the experience was kinda iffy on my part, so I'm glad to have a second chance. It pours a lightly hazy wan straw topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises light white grape, cinnamon, and light wheat. The taste holds notes of light peach, white grape, lemon juice, and light wheat. Not really much tartness at all, which is a decent disappointment considering the style in question. The body straddles the line between discord and rhy--I mean, heavy light and light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda dry finish. Overall, this is a mediocre Berliner, with little-to-no tartness and the same amount of peach, really. It's not overly offensive, necessarily, but there's nothing about it that makes me want to drink it ever again.

Numerous drafts sampled in the past week, most recently at the Oak Park Microbrew Review. Served in a flared flute glass.
Lightly hazed pastel yellow shot through with traces of orange in the light. Thin layer of white foam on the surface that doesn't amount to much and soon dissipates. Spotty flecks of seafoam lace left in the glass.
Tart aroma, light peach hints, lactic and somewhat mellow.
Crisp clean lactic tartness in the taste, bright and quenching. Fruity peach note is tart with no sweetness, sort of in the background. Less fruity and sour than Festina Peche. Very light bodied, dry finish, clean aftertaste with a hint of fruit. Overall it's highly drinkable and a great beer to quench thirst in the summer heat. Hope to see this on draft around town before summer is over.

A - Poured out a clear, pale orange color with gold highlights. It had a one-finger, white head of bubbly foam that left sudsy trails of lace on the glass.
S - It smelled of fresh, ripe peaches. Tart with some yeasty notes.
T - It tasted of peaches with a tart bite. Good yeasty bite, too. Some wheat-like flavors, as well.
M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light to medium bodied ale with a very dry, clean finish.
O - This is a really good beer, although it really bends the definition of Berliner Weiss style.

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.

I've enjoyed their beers so far, so I was happy to try this, thanks to rudzud for sharing.
Big fizzy head thanks to a little eruption, fades fairly quickly little lacing, murky dark peach orange color.
Nose big peach, tons of fresh peaches as well as a bit canned, candy syrup slightly pear and apple like candy syrup, apple juice starting to really come out, light bready malt, but the sourness Berliner weiss is not really there.
Taste brings peach and sourness, quite tart, into a bready toasty malt flavor, little yeasty like. Light wheat sour Berliner weiss. Then peaches, they come on strong later, Lois of peach syrup, fresh peaches, canned as well, very nice. Sourness and peach flavor blend very well. Finished with a lingering peach, sour flavors, light wheat and bready malt, hint if bitterness, dry sticky and tart but sticky little flemmy.
Mouth is med to lighter bod, tons of carb, dry but sticky syrupy thing.
Overall quite nice, surprised how well the blend of peach flavors and sour Berliner Weiss flavors went together, a very nice beer, but a little lacking on the sour aroma. The peach came through very well, and the Berliner Weiss eventually came through on the flavor nicely.

yet another Berliner that is slightly off the authenticity track, but tastes darn good. on tap at hops and pie right now, this beer reminds me more of festina peche from dogfish than the true berliners. hazy pale yellow color, soda bubbles, sweet and fruity nose with plenty of yeast to balance the sweet. more funk than tart or sour, but a clean, low acid feel to it. the flavor features prominent peach, fresh and ripe, a nice use of the fruit. wheat malt is in abundance, and there is a tartness, but its subtle, and its after the swallow. I like the lightness and brightness of this, the feel really works. aggressive carbonation cuts the sweet of the fruit and aids the funky finish, but I expect quite a bit more lactic tartness is my Berliner Weiss than this. still, another fun and tasty brew from perennial, who seems to be really exploding into the Colorado market lately. good for them, good for us.

Opened this bottle tonight about two weeks after picking it up at City Swiggers in NYC. Bottle was $20.99. Poured from a 750ml bottle into my Lost Abbey stemware.
a - Pours a hazy yellow orange color with two fingers of fluffy white head and high carbonation evident. Looks pretty nice.
s - Smells of peaches, oak, fruity malts, light funk, earthy notes, and lightly musty notes. Not overly fruity or funky and not sour at all. Decent but pretty average nose overall.
t - Tastes is better than the nose. Tastes of peaches, light sour fruits, fruity malts, oak, funk, and earthy notes. Lightly sour peaches are nice and no mustiness that the nose had. A definite step up for me.
m - Light body and moderate to high carbonation. Nice body and mouthfeel for a berliner.
o - Overall a pretty decent berliner. The nose has some peach but is pretty average; isn't sour at all and not much funk. The taste has more of both, though still light, and is pretty nice, and the mouthfeel is spot on for the style. A good beer that I would have again based on the actual beer itself, but would never buy again for that price. Hard to justify paying ~$20-21 for a bottle of a decent berliner when there are better beers out there for cheaper. Would pass at this price but maybe try it again if I saw it on tap for a decent price.
