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!

Pours a finger of head on cloudy light straw colored body.
The aroma is an airy peach smell.
The taste is tart with a peach sweet middle and end.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
The taste is great. The aroma is on the light side.

It pours a hazy gold with very little head. It has an interesting and sour aroma of peaches and a hint of apple, overall a weak fruity aroma. The aroma resembled more of a hard cider rather than an ale. There were a few flavors that managed to surface through the overpowering sourness. There was not as much peach flavor as expected but there was a very acidic apple flavor. There were flavors resembling that of a sparkling white wine. Overall, I was not too pleased with this beer but it will please palates fond of sour flavors and hard ciders.
