Pours a clear wheat color, thin bubbly white head.

Smells of doughy lacto, mild tartness, sweet peaches.

Taste is very fruity, lots of sweet peach, sourness is pretty mild. Good!

Nice bubbly mouthfeel, refreshing and drinkable.

Very nice Berliner, not super sour, nice fruit character.

7.6/10

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.

Shared with JLindros and poured into a palm tulip.

A - This was a gusher but caught it in time. Poured a crystal clear golden straw hue with a light one finger head that fades to leave light lacing and clouding.

S - Aromas blow me away! Tons of thick peach gummy candy nose. Not fresh peach but more like a candy peach note than fresh. Nothing else.

T - Taste is solid Berliner notes...sour, bready, yeasty then whamo peaches. Good strong peach notes especially on the finish. Really makes no sense as to the rdev foe this beer. Solid Berliner with peaches.

M - Mouthfeel is very nicely carbonated and super drinkable. Good and refreshing.

O - Overall I was floored by this beer. So peachy and Berliner it is just so balanced and tasty I need to get more of this.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.25

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.

It tastes like Peaches! Great summer seasonal beer!

Peach Berlinerweisse is best served cold as it is crisp and refreshing. I like to drink it with dinner during the ever more frequent heatwaves in the mid-west (July 2012 108 degrees in StL) This beer is light and tasty, very peachy!

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).

Poured from a bomber into a tulip

A- pours a clear straw color with a small stream of bubbles, small white head appears but quickly vanishes, virtually no lace

S- tart, slightly sweet and fruity, I can get a little bit of the peaches in the nose, a little bit of beady malt as well

T- slightly tart, very bready, only the slightest hint of peaches, not a whole lot going on here, watery to be honest

M- very light and easily drinkable, fairly high carbonation, still a lightly watery for this style

O- this was okay, nothing offensive but it just didn't do much for me, much better examples of the style out there
