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!

The scent reminded me of a dry smell you get with fruit fermentation, and had a taste similar to a wine. The bubbles tingle joyfully on my tongue.

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!
