    Are there any other peach beers I should add to this list for a peach party with friends?:
    Fantasia, Fou Foune, Cascade Apricot, Peche N Brett, Persica.........

    Another I am trying to put together after the peaches is Blueberry:
    Blaeber, LeBleu, Cascade Blueberry......

    Krieks/Cherry are too many to mention

    Strawberry besides Cascade Strawberry????

    Framboise de Amorosa, LP Framboise, Rose de Gambrinus, Framboos (not that I can get this for a party)

    Any insight into other good fruit beers I should be pursuing is appreciated. :)

    Upland has made blueberry, peach, raspberry, cherry, etc lambics.

    You might be able to get a growler of Bullfrog Blue Condition for the blueberry portion if that's still available at the brewery.

    Apricot and peach are completely different fruits, but I see why you're lumping together there.

    New Belgium Peach Porch Lounger

    Epic Brainless on Peaches

    Lindeman's Peche Lambic

    Block 15 Strawberry Fields.

    DFH Festina Peche could be in there too

    Crooked Stave's WWBI is the best blueberry beer I've had.

    Peach Berliner Weiss from Crab Tree is also pretty good. Very subtle.

    Another strawberry: Ichigo Highway by Bruery/Hangar 24. Great if you like the taste of strawberry band-aids.
  12. I'm told they make pinnaple lambic, hahah! I think passion fruit beer would be amazing if it existed!

    DFH Black and Blue is a solid, different blueberry beer.

  16. They had another one called Miami Madness. Sounds amazing, I wish they still made it. This is the description:
    Berliner Weisse brewed with guava, passionfruit and mango by Johnathan Wakefield.

    +1 for DfH Festina Peche, although it's a summer seasonal. Really great peach flavored Berliner Weiss, and one of my favorite summer seasonals. Also Lancaster Strawberry Wheat is a decent beer.

    For peaches, if New Belgium ever produces Eric's Ale again, it is the king of them all.
    If they don't - Crooked Stave's Persica will work as a suitable replacement.
  19. Abita Strawberry...I'm not a fan but some people go crazy for it...should be out late spring I think
  20. I enjoyed a couple of Strawberry Short's Cake last summer.

    Dark Horse Tres is a Blueberry Stout. Very good.

    Funkwerks made a Passion Fruit version of Montagne, it's fantastic.

    The second is a blend of mango and passionfruit. Yes, the make a mango beer as well.


    When fresh (i.e., in Belgium), they're all quite interesting and the fruit flavor comes through well just layered over a touch of tartness from the wit base.

    I recently bought a bottle of Odell's Avant Peche Imperial Porter. Fantastic find.

    Veritas 10 and Filmishmish. I actually liked Filmishmish better. Sans Pagaie. I second the Cisco wood series. Peche and Kriek are top notch.

    Buffalo Bill's Blueberry Oatmeal Stout ... Drink at your own peril, you've been warned.

    I have never enjoyed a beer with fruit in it. Maybe I just haven't found the right one yet, but I really despise them.
  29. A "peach party with friends" sounds pretty dirty.

    For blueberry I'd recommend Shipyard Smashed Blueberry. Tasty!

    Peach - struise axelle-jeroen ( no lambic but much peach)
  38. Terrapin did a peach beer. Also Selinsgrovebrewing Saison de Peche is good.
