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!

Poured from bottle into glass. Straw color like the berliner weisse styles I have had. Weak head disappeared quickly with no lacing. Other berliners I poured had a longer lasting creamy head.
Smell- Peachy, lemon.
Taste-tart with a unsweetened peachy taste and dry finish.
Overall- I like it. the four pack is expensive so I probably will not purchase again. It is a fun twist on the berliner Weisse style beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a growler into a pint glass
A: Pale yellow with a very thin head
S: Fairly muted, mostly wheat, maybe just a hint of peach
T: Wheaty, after several sips a nice peachy flavor does come through, along with a sourness. Maybe out of place for a peach beer, but I enjoy sour. Just lacks complexity beyond that
M: Light-bodied, crisp, somewhat sour, pleasant carbonation
O: I enjoyed this but I don't see myself adding it to the regular lineup

This is one of my favorite summer beers. It's a super easy drinking beer that you can enjoy on a porch in the heat or on the beach. On a boat. Anywhere, really, where it's warm and, preferably, sandy. I think you have to look at it that way in order to appreciate it. It's not going to warm you up in the winter or fill you up like a stout. That's not what this beer was intended to do and it makes no bones about it.
