Just bought a 4 pack at Specs ArborWalk (Austin) for $9.99. Will sample for the first time tonight.
I know Gabriel's in San Marcos has it.
Found it @ Hall's in Colleyville
Had my first one with dinner tonight. Not as fruity as I would have liked. If I had been blindfolded, I dont know that I could have guessed "peach" as the flavor - more like "sweet fruit", but I dont know that I could have gotten more specific than that. Still a nice light summer brew, but I crave more fruit flavor in my fruity beers, and have generally been disappointed (other than by last year's batch of Shiner Ruby Redbird - this year's tastes more like ginger than grapefruit)
I haven't had it out of a bottle yet but had it at the Draughthouse the other night and I would describe it as very "peachy". Don't know if it's a $10 4-pack for me so haven't had it out of the bottle yet...but definitely got the peach on draft
Hmm. It would be interesting to compare the 2.
I thought that there was a nice peach character to it considering that the base beer is a berliner weisse, which tends to be fairly sour. According to DFH, the peaches are meant to offset the sourness so that the beer is neither sweet nor sour, but tart instead. Great summer brew, imo.
Agrees on the Ruby Redbird. Last years was the ginger complimented the grapefruit and this year it's vice versa.
Nabbed a 4 pack (~9)of these at Halls along with Tart Lychee. Great pairing of beers I thought. Going to do it again on the lake this weekend.
The lady mentioned seeing it on the shelves at Whole Foods Arlington as well.
Festina Peche is alll over Austin. I've seen it at Barton Springs Food Mart, South Lamar Wine & Spirits, and the Whole Foods mothership this week.
Gabriel's in San Antonio still has a lot of Festina. We also have a few cases of Burton Baton available now, and our San Marcos store should still have some as well.
