Availability: Summer

Notes/Commercial Description:
In Festina Peche, since the natural peach sugars are eaten by the yeast, the fruit complexity is woven into both the aroma and the taste of the beer so there is no need to doctor it with woodruff or raspberry syrup. Just open and enjoy!

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

Appearance: Poured with about half a finger of head which dissipated to the edges of the glass. The color is pale yellow with a cloudy body. Active carbonation is bright but just a tick low for the style.

Smell: Peaches and white grapes jump out on the front. Creamy, buttery malts showcase themselves on the body. There is an airy touch of ginger and spices on the back end. A touch of sour shows up but it is very subtle.

Taste: Sweet peaches hit first. Those peaches keep rolling into the body and take a darker turn, yielding some tartness. Some of the traditional berliner yeast and malt notes are felt on the back end with sprite fruits and dry grains but this is peach forward.

Mouthfeel: The peaches do well on the front, transitioning from sweet to tart. Fitting dryness on the back end pulls it together.

Overall: Well done brew by DFH here. The peaches certainly dominate but they really fit within the style. Nice malt and yeast notes pull the style through.

Serving type: bottle

The obvious is peach. A very nice sour, and tartness to this beer. Good, feels like drinking a peach tea or peach drink period. I would like a bit more tart/sourness from this beer. But good overall.

The Wheat character comes through a bit more after each sip. As DogFish Head says, this is a session-sour.
