ratebeer tasting at Dick's. Hazy, straw yellow body with a thin white collar. Peach juice, medium sweetness. Light body, low carbonation. Pretty good.

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a pint glass. Cloudy pale yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of sour fruit dominates. Taste is also sour with a hint of lemon. The peach is faintly detectable to me. Not a personal favorite of mine.

Bottle from Tin Bucket. $5 for a fruited Berliner? Sign me up.

A mostly clear light orange with a thin, white head that falls off rapidly leaving no lacing, this looks solid. The nose is decent. Doughy white wheat bread, mildly crusty, with a touch of lactic tartness, a mild peach note, a little bit of white wine, mildly mineraly, moderately fruity. The palate is crisp, light and airy with a blend of bread and some peach. Some yogurt-like lactic tartness is present as well. The mid-palate is where the bready flavors really come alive, in some ways almost kvass like, making me thing of mashed white bread with a little bit of sour milk. Drying on the finish with a little , a little watery, this beer is light in body. Very good, almost excellent - the way it captures the Weissbier part of the Berliner Weissbeir style is commendable.

Poured from a bottle. Cloudy, light yellow with a white bubbly head. Slightly sour peaches and breadiness on the nose. Flavor follows similarly, with the addition of tartness and lemon. Feel is light and airy. We started off or Thanksgiving drinking with this. Flavorful and well done, would definitely buy again and would be interested in trying the other flavors of this offering.

Bottle from brewery, sitting for three weeks. Some of the fruitiness seems to have faded , or maybe settled. Twirling the bottle releases more of the peach essence. Solid Berliner body supports the whole thing, light and effervescent, big peach flavors. Bottle holds up well.

Draft at Bittercreek during the 2015 funkfest... Pours a standard hazy light yellow with a decent enough sudsy white head. Great peach flavor is soft and perfumy ripe... Bready wheat element adds a sweetness to help the peach essence bloom... lemony and tart assertive lactic notes... I love peaches, but I love white peaches the most... This is world class as far as the "New School fruited Berliners" go. Awesome... It will be a shame if this never sees bottles.
