Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Todd on 03-05-2007

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!

Due to the fizziness and foaminess of the pour, I opted to drink this from the bottle instead. The peach flavor and foaminess come together as a a good substitute for sparkling wine. Otherwise, definitely a summer time/BBQ beer.

Light and fizzy could use more flavor. It's ok.

Great summer beer by DFH. The peach flavor is tremendous. I understand that this is a session beer, but I wish the ABV was a tad higher.

Great sour beer! Tasty and only slightly acidic. Clean, crisp and delicious.

A - Pours an almost water clear with a faint hint of yellow. Small quickly dissipating white head. Little to no lacing left on the walls of the glass.
S - Belgian sour smell upfront with a bit of peach in the back.
T - Disappointing. Tastes like a slightly sour Corona upfront with the absolute mildest touch of faint peach in the back you can imagine. Very basic and boring beer. Could pair well with certain foods, but is not a very good stand alone beer by any means.
O - It isn't disgusting or anything, just severely lacking and extremely boring.
V - Not really worth purchasing.
