Poured into a tulip glass from a 750ml.

Pours a nice pale golden color that is pretty light and almost clear. There is a nice 0.25 inch head thta is white and soappy but recedes very quickly.

Aroma is of grains and some nice sweet peach. Very mild and light. Nice earthy grain notes that are slightly bready.

Peach comes up first. There is some nice tartness to the brew as well. The earthy grain notes gives the brew some bready yeast light notes. Crisp light and slightly sweet with some mild tartness. The mouthfeel is crisp and light.

Pretty good offering by the guys at Perennial. I like what they are accomplishing over there.

On-draught @ Jake Melnick's Corner Tap in Chicago Illinois. Truncated notes taken on a phone below:

Reviewed live as a Berliner weiss per the name. Expectations are high; this sounds delicious!

No bubble show forms as it's poured (from what I can see).

APPEARANCE: 1-2cm wide head of off white colour. Milky and frothy, with a weirdly supple creamy head that's way off-style. Oddly thick consistency. Retention is average - 2 minutes. Leaves no lacing.

Body is a golden copper of average vibrance, with a translucent and transparency that suggests filtration. No yeast can be seen within.

Beer appears well carbonated. Overall appearance is decent, but it has no stand-out characteristics.

AROMA: Muted peach is present, but it's not particularly vivid or expressive. A bit of peachy tartness sets off the mikd sourness (which seems to be about a 3/10 in terms of intensity). Fresh wheat and clean barley lurk beneath, providing a base for the lactic acid twang. Some may find hints of apricot.

Aromatic intensity is average.

TASTE: Lactic acid twang mingles with mild (2/10) sourness over the predictable wheat and clean barley backbone. Hopping is minimal, but I'd say its profile is grassy if you put me on the spot. Well balanced, albeit not as peachy or sour as I'd find ideal. Depth of flavour could be much better, particularly where the peach is concerned. It's just not as vivid or expressive as you'd find in the best execution of this premise.

TEXTURE: Mildly acidic, smooth, wet, and a biteen sour - but not smacky or puckering. Light bodied and refreshing to style. This texture harmonizes neatly with the flavours, coaxing out nuance from the bacteria. Well carbonated.

Well executed, though it doesn't elevate the beer as a whole.

OVERALL: Highly drinkable, and a superb summer beer - even if it doesn't quite nail the style or reach the apex of this premise in particular. A peach Berliner Weiss is a great idea, but as good as this, I've definitely had better. Absolutely worth trying though, and unquestionably a beer I'd get again. Though with superior domestic offerings like Anderson Valley's Blood Orange Gose on the market, I doubt I'll be reaching for a 6 pack anytime soon.
