Berliner Weissbier |  4.50% ABV

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!

4.28/5  rDev +17.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Light colored body, but unfiltered and murky in appearance. The beer swirled around after pouring.

Smell: A little tart on the nose. Not an overpowering aroma.

Taste: Tart. I wouldn't say sour, just tart. Peach flavor is minimal-to-nonexistent, but not to say this detracts from the taste.

Mouthfeel: Tingly, kind of like a gueuze. Not how you might expect a fruit-flavored beer to feel.

Drinkability: The pleasant tartness would allow me to maybe drink a couple of these, but not probably not more.

Not what I was expecting from a peach-flavored beer, but I'm not disappointed either. This is my first Berliner Weisse and only my 2nd Dogfish Head beer. I am intrigued and will seek out both the style and the brewery again.

Baffled with this beer!

After pouring it in a glass, the clear, faint gold color reminded me of a dessert wine. Texture was on par, color was on par, and very little carbonation was produced. When I tasted it, it was like a carbonated chardonnay. There was hardly any taste of wheat or hops, although some hints lingered. I don't know if DHB is trying to achieve this effect, but for sure Festina Peche doesn't taste like a beer. It is either amazing, or a flop.
