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!

I really like this beer a lot . It's not overwhelmingly peachy, just enough fruity without being wimpy. Goes great with summer.

Way too sour and hardly any peach! Very disappointing.

Pale straw color, lots of bubbles and a massive white head. A little barnyard funk, cut grass and a hint of peach on the nose. Nice, mouth-puckering tartness, slight creaminess and, again, just a touch of peach in the flavor. Not my favorite Berliner Weisse, but not bad. This one's pretty easy to find and still scratches that itch.

4.5% ABV
12oz Brown Bottle $2.34 State Street Northampton MA
Appearance: Honey gold, lots of bubbles decent head sticks around

Smell: sweet and a bit fresh peachy, not much aroma, a bit metallic

Flavor: soda style carbonation, tart but not tangy no bitter at all

tastes like a dry cider - not getting any "Beery" flavor at all.

Overall: 3.5/5 Pretty good - a little bland, but would be a good choice in a bar
