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!

I tend to only review beers I dislike only to warn people who are about to spend their money on an expensive six pack.
This is another example of how DFH should stay away from fruit beers.
DFH is one of my favorite breweries but this beer feels phoned in. I may expect to much from Sam C. but this beer comes across as alcohol with peach concentrate.
It is thin and without redeeming quality.

3.49/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: straw yellow color. a big two plus finger head, white color, that fades slowly and leaves a small lacing. completely opaque due to haze

Smell: strong wheaty, musky sour smell, very similar to what I find in most berliners. small amount of green apple skin and a touch of sweetness

Taste: opens up with some wheat that comes off slightly musty. small amount of green apple skin and some sweetness with it. just slightly sour overall

Mouthfeel: a light refreshing beer, not quite the peach I was looking for but a good balance between fruit and sour.

3.18/5  rDev -12.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a tulip. Thin white head dissipates almost immediately, very thin lacing clings to the glass. Straw yellow and slightly cloudy. Aroma is sour apples with wild yeast dominant. The tart yeast profile is predominant in the flavor with very little fruit noticeable until the sip is gone. Really mellow peach aftertaste combined with the residual sweetnees gives this more of a tangerine and clementine flavor than peach. Very drinkable but I'd like to have a version of this where the fruit shines more and isn't so muted by the yeast. I'm a huge fan of wild yeast in beers but I expected more fruit intensity even for a Berliner Weisse
