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!

A- Very pale, very transparent, straw-colored body with a frothy bone-white head that lingers around.

S- Peach, dried grass, noble hops, some citrus.

T- Very tart and acidic body with peach and citrus coming through. Body is mostly a wheat flavor, with the fruity flavors taking over the bulk of the taste.

M- Very light, very bubbly. Carbonation leaves almost a frothy feel.

O- I had this one a couple times and did not like it, but I feel like the sour peach is not as strong as I remember. Nothing I would seek out, but not terrible either.

Yellow amber color with a two finger head with low retention.
Light aroma of peach and vanilla.
Elegant taste of peaches with a pleasant sourness. Notes of lemon.
Dry and acid aftertaste.
Light body with low carbonation.
Almost a mild Sour beer with a good acidity. Peach was at a perfect level. Enjoyable.

Looks aren't this one's strong point. Super fizzy soda-like head dissipates almost instantly, leaving no lacing, with some bubbles rising through the light yellow, clear body.

Aroma is nice, really peachy, with a little tartness. Flavor is also peachy, quite so. For a peach beer, it's really tasty. A light tartness goes with the Berliner aspect well.

Body is light, somewhat fizzy, and very refreshing.

Overall, despite the poor appearance, it's a very nice summer beer.
