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!

Pours a very pale gold color with very thick white head that leaves considerable lacing in the tall glass. The nose is of light wheat malts, some florals notes and a decided tartness. I don't detect much here that would identify this beer as having peach flavor if I didn't already know. The palate is quite light, refreshing and lively. Wheat malt, yeast and considerable sourness. This beer finishes very dry...and very tart. Light body and tartness make this beer quite refreshing and super easy to drink. A potential summer classic?

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

look: 2 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Light lemon color and mostly transparent with no head to speak of.

Fresh aroma of peach nectar.

Mild bread character. Lots of peach flavor, just the right level of sweetness. Just a hint of leafy hop.

Light body. Crisp finish. High carbonation.

For a fruit beer it's very good. Well balanced and refreshing.

3.61/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a plastic cup in the car before we went in to the Steely Dan concert in New Orleans.

A: Beneath the off-white one finger head that held up for some time, the color is a light gold with flecks of peach. Not much lacing.

S: Very subtle peach smell mixed with grain, wheat and light malts.

T: Better than I was expecting. Smooth, lightly sweet. Peaches collide with wheat. Citrus-y. Nice.

M: Light to medium with light carbonation. Dry finish.

O: A good foreplay to the concert. Could session this one after a bout with the yard.
