Berliner Weiss is, in my opinion, a highly underrated style. I like that DFH added peaches right in the brewing process.
It's thickly hazed, a pale gold color with a white head roughly one finger high resting on top for a moderate length of time. A modicum of spotty lacing is left behind.
This beer is peachy, like fresh juice, in both the aroma and the flavor. There's a gentle sourness that isn't off-putting in any way, complementing the juicy sweetness. A wheat base is evident, giving off a note of grains the entire session. Sweet, tangy, ad lightly sour with a hint of a somewhat floral element, this is pretty much what I expect from the style. It's soft, with everything that should be there without going overboard with any of it.
Lightly tart and dry on the tongue, this beer just comes together very nicely altogether. Creamy and consistently crisp with a flowing smoothness underneath before upping the dryness a touch into the finish, the feel is surprisingly good.
