Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
L- Clear, pale gold straw, head disappears quickly. Lively carbonation is evident.
S- Mild acidic citrus fruit, lemon, sourness. Not very strong.
T- Tart, mildly sour, strong lemon and some grapefruit citric flavors, with some sourness lingering in the back of the mouth. Extremely refreshing, and very easy to drink.
F- Light body, but the lingering sourness is pleasant. Lively carbonation on the attack that fizzes away quickly in the mouth.
O- Really refreshing, and way too easy to drink. Good tart flavors and a bit of a bubbly pop in the mouth make this perfect for drinking on the porch after a long day.

Pours a straw yellow with a finger's white head which doesn't stay around long. No residual ring or lacing.
Light peach aroma, ginger, yeast.
Sour but not bitter peach continues in the flavor along with other sour stone fruit, wheat, yeast.
Crisp bite at first, mellows somewhat, dry finish.
Stellar light touch of peach flavoring results in a quite refreshing beer. My favorite American Berliner.

Hold orange color. Carbonation is light,can feel it but doesn't influence feel too much. Aroma is wheat and peaches but not too strong,fake,or floral from the peaches. A slight tart sour finish. Other than a bit of wheat it reminded me of a sour with just a touch of peach.and like advertised it didn't come off syrupy,just a light touch of natural peach
