Notes: 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!

Why doesn’t DFH sell this in bottles/cans? One of their better offerings.

It is pretty cool to see tiny peach chunks floating around. The smell is not as good as it could be. It's a subtle peach smell slightly overpowered by the sour. The taste of this beer is excellent though. If you love peach with a sour afternoon, this is the beer for you. This beer is so refreshing on a hot day and so crushable. The low abv and flavor make this an excellent light choice for the summer.

This beer pours a cloudy apricot color with a moderate white head. There is a strong, pleasant smell of pineapple. The taste is bitter and tangy. The most notable flavor is lemon, but its overpowered by an artificial sweetener.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Clear light golden pour with 2 fingers of fizzy white head. Falls fast... minimal lacing.

S: Tart and fruity. Peach and light citrus.

T.F: Peach/apricot up front. Fruit... lemon citrus and crackery grains. Modest tartness... not really sour. Light bodied and well carbonated. Lingering peach preserves at the finish.

O: A nice tart peach forward Weisse. Easy drinking... and with the low ABV super drinkable.

12 ounce can poured into a willi becher.

Nice peach aroma. Peach flavor is good to but more subtle. Light and refreshing, not too tart, a touch watery.

Pours orange with a 1 inch white head. Moderate lacing. Hazy.

Aroma is dank. Peaches, tangerine. Not much else.

Taste is sour. Wheat, tart peach, tart apple. Mouth puckering.

Light bodied, light carbonation. Dry, tart finish.

A nice tart beer. Thirst quenching.

12oz can from the variety pack, about 2 months old

Unfiltered, no foam at first, but a big head that sticks around after an aggressive pour; looks like apple cider otherwise. Not too sweet, not too sour... tart. Light. Not much to speak of, grain and sour peaches. Smells like a corona with too much lime.

The "Neo-Berliner Weiss" tag is bizarre - I'll call it "Sour Light"
