Notes / Commercial Description:
In Festina Peche, since the natural peach sugars are eaten by the yeast, the fruit complexity is woven into both the aroma and the taste of the beer so there is no need to doctor it with woodruff or raspberry syrup. Just open and enjoy!

The beer pours a pale straw color, with a white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is a clean and simple balance between a light funky sour note and a bright peach background note, with neither overpowering the other. Tastes of bright and moderate acidity that blends perfectly with the peach juice. Malt flavor is almost non existent, but there is a low honey-like malt note. The finish is semi-dry, with a lingering sour funk and light mouthfeel.

Lager smell with a touch of peach. Mild peach taste and mild sour. Drinkable and definitely a session ale.
