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.

3.53/5 rDev -5.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5
750ml bottled August 2013. Served in a DFH Signature glass
Appearance: Pours a pale straw yellow color with less than a finger of a white soapy head that dissipates to a thin cap and collar. Body is hazy with quite a bit of visible carbonation.
Smell: Peaches, wheat, some clove spiciness.
Taste: Nice punch of sourness right away yields to flavors of wheat, peaches, banana, and clove. There's a weird, off putting grainy, almost soapy flavor in the finish and aftertaste, but it's mild enough that it doesn't detract from the overall flavor too badly.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied, and crisp. Medium carbonation. Really refreshing.
Overall: Not bad, but the strange aftertaste keeps this one from being really good. If It were cheaper, I'd recommend giving it a try, but at it's price point I would pass on it in the future.
