Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Todd on 03-05-2007

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 snifter. Acquired in a BIF from ufmj, thanks man!

A- Pours a straw-yellow, slightly hazy body with a white, fizzy head that reduces to nothing and leaves no lacing. Looks like a sour.

S- Peach, mango, strawberries. Pretty fruity. Some bready and caramel notes in there too.

T- Upfront it's actually slightly tart, which leads to a nice subtle peachyness. Finishes crisp.

M- Light, easy drinking, refreshing body. Medium carbonation.

Overall nicely crafted, very refreshing. Perfect for summer.

On the nose is white grapes, some wheat, and a hint of alcohol. Some peaches lie in the background. This really smells more like a white wine.

Taste is a bit sour. Sour apples and grapes. Some peach. Grains settle in on the tongue. Very refreshing.

Mouthfeel is light and almost airy feeling. Nice carbonation.

This would be a good beer to cool down on a hot day. Not my favorite beer ever but I could drink it again.

12 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, Spring 2013 bottling. Pours lightly hazy pale golden color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense white head with solid retention, that reduces to a thin lace cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big peach, pear, tart lemon, apple, floral, grass, wheat, light bread, pepper, and floral/yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of peach with tart/fruity/spicy yeast ester notes; and solid strength. Taste of peach, pear, lemon, apple, floral, grass, pepper, wheat, light bread, and floral/yeast earthiness. Light fruity tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of peach, light fruits, floral, grass, pepper, wheat, light bread, and earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice balance and complexity of peach concentrate with malt and yeast flavors; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and fairly prickly mouthfeel this is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is a nice flavored Berliner weisse style. Nice balance of flavors with solid robustness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable and very session-able offering.
