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!

Light and fizzy could use more flavor. It's ok.

Great summer beer by DFH. The peach flavor is tremendous. I understand that this is a session beer, but I wish the ABV was a tad higher.

Great sour beer! Tasty and only slightly acidic. Clean, crisp and delicious.

A - Pours an almost water clear with a faint hint of yellow. Small quickly dissipating white head. Little to no lacing left on the walls of the glass.
S - Belgian sour smell upfront with a bit of peach in the back.
T - Disappointing. Tastes like a slightly sour Corona upfront with the absolute mildest touch of faint peach in the back you can imagine. Very basic and boring beer. Could pair well with certain foods, but is not a very good stand alone beer by any means.
O - It isn't disgusting or anything, just severely lacking and extremely boring.
V - Not really worth purchasing.

A weisse beer that is absolutely reminiscent of a white wine. Effervescent fizzy carbonation, with a light sourness. Was expecting a puckering of the lips but found this to be softened out by the addition of the peach. Would absolutely go well with most food items, especially meats or seafood. Very enjoyable

I love this brew. Perfect for a hot day. This is one of the few Berliner style brews available to me in a 4 pack. All other options are expensive bombers.

Lots more peach and tartness than I was expecting. After many Berliners, I guess I wasn't expecting too much from DFH, they don't do a lot of low ABV beers. However, this one is really refreshing and balanced while still hitting the style somewhat.

Will drink again.

Tap to tulip

Nice brew.

Slightly sour, tart, fruity, overwhelmingly peach/stone fruit (in a good way).
Reminiscint of a fuzzy navel wine cooler (my teenage years, I know fuzzy navel). Thin bodies. Nice clean lager-like finish. At 4.5%, very drinkable. Refreshing. Prickly. Appetizing. Definitely worth a try.
