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 a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours a greenish yellow, pretty translucent, with a small white head. Smells of peach with very slight grain. Tastes of peaches, but not fresh ones, more like canned ones, with fizzy water. Beer is light bodied and goes down smooth with heavy carbonation. Overall, a slightly above average beer.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours light golden in color with a quarter finger white head that disappears instantly

Nose has dominate wheat notes with a very slight peach must with deep yeasty phenols.

Wheat is forward in the taste along with a sour musty yeast that is similar to the nose finishes with a musty peach sweetness.

Mouthfeel has a big carbonation typical for the style. Big sticky body from the malt and sour.

I am am avid fan of DFH, but this one is not for me...

A-Golden yellow color, no real head to speak of...
S-Musty, funk, high alcohol smell, remind me a little of home-make wine
T-Very tart taste, there is a hint of cheesy sourness (like an overload of lactose or whey) that I can't quite put my finger on...
M-Very much like champagne, the bubbles are quite thin and numerous. High level of carbonation
O-Just not my thing.
