while I enjoyed the beer I did not get as much peach as I would have liked. perhaps the overcarbonation removed some of the peach, but overall I enjoyed the beer

Hazy golden orange body pours into a chalice with great effervescent head, fine speckled bubbles left behind as it settles down a bit. Aroma has pungent acidity, chalky yeast notes, and earthy peach pits with a bit of flesh evident of actual fruit. Flavor just think very tart and refreshing peach tea tannin notes with peach pit notes and dry acidity lactic fruit yogurt (maybe a Chobani). Dries the palate from every direction, I popped some Nexium earlier and I'm glad that I did. Effervescent well done carbonation levels carries this lively tart lower abv ale across my palate nicely, light to medium bodied with a bone dry finish. Overall impressed with the use of fruit so subtle where they used loads of real peaches in a classic German berliner weisse.

Had really high hopes for this but it was kind of a let down. Didn't pick up any peach flavor. More traditional style with less sourness and more wheat favors in the for front. Not terrible, but didn't meet expectations.

Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for sharing this beer

Consumed 10/24/14

A: Pale, lightly milky golden yellow, decidedly peach colored - pours with a small, off-white head, fades to virtually nothing, leaves virtually no lacing

S: Extremely peachy with a nice dose of funk - fresh, ripe peach slices with a minimal amount of sweetness - some nice funk, not as ripe as some others of the style, but it works - light amount of sourness - very light, pale malts

T: A tart peach soda - really great peach flavor - fruity and fresh without being sweet - nicely dry, tart, nicely dry - light amount of acidic and lactic funk - very light, pale malts

M: Light body, low carbonation, very smooth, dry finish, refreshing

O: 750 pounds of peaches (per bottle)

The peach flavors are spectacular. The base Berliner Weiss is fairly tame, but I suppose it's just there to set the stage for the peach. Definitely worth a try.

look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Hazy bright yellow gold. Head is bright-white and fluffy. Drops to a minuscule wispy cap and small collar. No lacing to speak of. Slight carbonation on the pour.

Smell: Loaded with fresh peach. A bit underripe with a deep fleshy fruity aroma. A solid push of wheat with some pale bready malts. A vague hint of lactic tartness in the back. A touch of grass. A bit of funky musty damp earth. Gym sock. Peach pit, flesh, and skin. Just loaded with peach and wheat. Very soft yeast profile.

Taste: Tart peach. Pure clean peach flesh. Pit and skin as well. Wheat adds a nice twang with a mild earthy and musty flavor on the back. Damp hay and grass. A small hint of bread dough with a mild cracker snap. Mild pale malt sweetness. Loaded with a soft and easy peach with a touch of underripe tartness. Slightly lactic as well. Balance of sweet and tart. Yeast adds a very soft powdery element in the back. Delicate.

Mouthfeel: Light body with a mild carbonation. Smooth and easy drinking.

Overall: It's what every peach wheat beer wants to be.

It's mild and delicate and done just right. A bit off to style, but it's delightful and the peach is true and real. I'll take another.
