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!

Decided to try this after getting tired of ever hoppier IPA (which I love, but hey, gott go the other way sometimes). I was impressed by the relative lack of sweetness; it is flavorful, and redolent of peaches, but refreshing and tart. has a very clean finish too, and is an attractive orange-yellow. Head is pretty minimal and carbonation pretty high. A very pleasant surprise!

Poured from a 12 oz into a weizen glass in late 2013.

A: See through light yellow. Head recedes quickly. Cloudy yeast at top.

S: Peaches.

T: Peaches. Honey aftertaste typical of Dogfish Head beer.

M: Crisp. Had lots of carbonation. It felt like I was drinking 7-Up.

O: This was super easy to drink. It was a very refreshing beer that would be great for a barbecue.

Bottle
A: yellow. Slight haze. Thin white head. Bubbly.
S: slight acidity. Might have some peach aroma, but I think I am searching too hard.
T: lightly sour. Tart. Refreshing.
M: highly carbonated. Light. Dry. Tart.
O: good sour. I don't pick up on the peach. Crisp. Would definitely buy again.

Interesting peach weissbeer. Color is very pale and slight;ly cloudy with constant bubbles rising. Aroma is light and peachy. Taste is pretty interesting, lots of carbonation, tart peach and a hint of sweetness. Also, the wheat flavor is there. Overall, very refreshing and tangy.

Poured into a standard pint glass, color is gold, lightly cloudy, head is feint and a ring, no lacing.

aroma is light wheat, touch of sour tart, touch of peach

taste is similar to the aroma as tart flavors are forward, hints of peach and light wheat and biscuit like notes

mouthfeel is crisp and sour, very pleasant and refereshing
