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!

Beer review from BA Mag Aug 2007.

Festina Pêche is based off the Berliner Style Weissbier, which is a tart wheat beer that may be sweetened with syrups when served. Dogfish Head went the extra mile and brewed theirs with peaches.

Pours out a hazed yellowish-golden brew, with a ring of white lace that struggles to stick around. Firm peach aroma with a mildly tart nose; hints of wheat and yeast with a backing of floral notes in the aroma. Very refreshing from a blast of tartness and a deep crispness comes from within the moderate body. The tartness has a perfect snap to it rather than trying to rip your taste buds out. In the core of the tartness sits the peach flavor, with green apple flavors swirling around it. From middle to end, it's soft, but the malt flavor grows and vanishes quickly as dryness sets in and the aftertaste shows its cleanliness.

By far, one of the best summer seasonals brewed in the US this year. This beer is a call to the entire brewing industry not to jump on every bandwagon that comes through town. Do something different.
