Poured into my Notre Dame standard pint...
A. Pours a clear, pale straw gold with two fingers of fast-burning head. Lacing is non-existent. Head disappears in an instant.
S. Fresh peach, cracked wheat, some mild yeast. Really juicy and crisp.
T. Peach juice, barley, grain, bread crust.
M. A little light on carb and needs more wheat presence to round out the sweet peach notes.
O. An excellent Berliner. It doesn't have quite the body the standard Berliners do, with the sweet, sugary peach notes dominating. It's also not quite as tart as the more modern examples of the style. What it is, though, is well-made, closer to the classic style than most examples these days. While I definitely would have enjoyed a bit more graininess, this beer is refreshing and delicious. There aren't enough Berliners today, in my opinion. Festina Peche demonstrates why brewers should visit this style more often. Outstanding brew here.

A- pours a golden yellow color with a white head that leaves small lacing around the glass.
S- not a lot of aroma but I do smell fruit
T- slightly sour taste but not bad sour kind of like sour candy taste. Excellent.
M- smooth light bodied beer that has a dry aftertaste.
O- not bitter and not sweet slightly sour. Another great beer from the best brewery in the US. I would drink many of these on a hot summer day.
Serving type: on-tap
