Draft at Monk's Cafe in Philadelphia, PA.

Pours a cloudy pale golden orange color with golden yellow edges and a half finger white head that immediately fades, leaving no lacing behind.

Sweet, tropical fruit aroma with a strong peach juice character but less fruit forward than the other FB Berliners I've tried. Subtle lactic funk and citrus acidity as well as some bready yeast, banana and other light fruit.

Medium bodied with some tart, puckering acidity and lactic funk that counters the promient peach/tropical fruit sweetness. Again, less fruit forward than their other Berliners and a bit truer to to style. Although sweet peach juice and tropical fruit is the promient flavor, there are some wheat beer characteristics with citrus acidity, lactic funk, lift fruit and sourdough bread notes. Well balanced, refreshing and easier to drink than the others(except passion fruit).

On-tap, served in a pint

Pours a pale straw yellow color with little to no head. Very still in the glass.

The aroma is fresh peaches. Soft and delicate. Acidic tartness with clean, dry hay in the back. This is the softest peach aroma I have come across. Very faint.

The peach flavor is really fresh; not a concentrate type of flavor. The tartness comes out mid-palate before a dry hay finish. This is the tamest of the Funk Buddha Berliners I have come across. Soft, subtle, and delicate.

Light, clean, and refreshing with mild carbonation. The finish is dry and lightly tart.

I'd like the peach flavor to be a little brighter, but this was still delicious. A very delicate beer.

Philly beer week at Monks with Ryan from Funky Buddha not only in attendance but helping to deliver the goods to patrons. As mentioned in other reviews, all the draft lines were spewing foam so beer was dispensed into pictures before standard pint glasses were served. On this glorious berliner-lover occasion we had the opportunity to sample the raspberry, lime, peach and passionfruit versions side by side.

The peach version appears in a pint glass similar to the lime version: pale and hazed in color with a quick dissolving white cap. A swirl releases some white bubbles but in typical berliner fashion any resemblence of a cap is quick to fade. A little bit of spotty lace sticks to the glass.

The smell of this brew is the most aromatic of the 4 berliner offerings on this day. It is bright with fresh peach juice that blends brings into a funky lacto-like yogurt quality mixed with a fresh grainy quality.

The taste carries with it everything mentioned in the aroma. Some mild notes of peach come off much less intense than the aroma led on. A funky lacto quality is present with a fresh cereal-grainy sweetness. This is a light bodied, modestly carbonated and very refreshing/easy drinking brew. This is something (just like the others) that I would really like to sit down with in a less stressful environment to enjoy but I dont see that happening anytime soon. If you get the chance, try this. It is the real deal. Nicely done.

On tap at Monk's during Philly Beer Week.

All of the Funky Buddha brews seemed to gush from the tap lines, and this was no exception. From tap to pitcher behind the bar, then poured into individual pints. Head quickly melted into the hazy, lemon-lime-colored body.

Peach aroma pops from the initial pour. Concentrated and citrusy: sourness incoming!

Taste delivers fresh citrus to my taste buds, though it's more difficult to pinpoint the specific fruit in this Berliner compared to the others sampled alongside it. Still a total thirst-quencher; crisp, clean, and delicious. Perfect beer for a hot summer day. (How I wish) I could drink this all day!

On draft at the Buddha. These treatments of Berliner are rapidly becoming my new favorite go to beer at the Buddha. This doesn’t have a ton of peach in the aroma, but it still holds a good amount of sour tart funk in the flavor and aroma. Definitely another home run from the Buddha.

Pours a light peach or beige color with a one finger head that lingers briefly

S- I get peach of course but there's alot more at play. Some other tropical fruits specifically pineapple and coconut. Some mild funk/sourness is present as well

T - it's as advertised sour peach and some coconut with a clean tart finish

M- medium bodied good carbonation.

O- this is an extremely tasty beer. Of all their Berliners this is probably my favorite. Great job guys!
