Brewed by:
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery
Delaware, United States

Style: Berliner Weissbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.50%

Availability: Summer

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!

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Served in a pint glass.

Appearance: A light gold color , body is light but steady bubbles. Head thin, it rose to maybe 1/8" at best but settles to nothing after a minute or so.

Smell:Light light peach.

Taste: Little sweet, soda like but a citrus after feel which is unique in a very good way.

Mouth: Smooth with a sharp bubbly texture, carbonation is medium slight heavy.

Overall: Not the best peach beer I have had but definitely a thirst quencher factoring in this scorching heat this summer has started with. Have a glass on me, Salud!

A: pours a slightly cloudy pale yellow with a finger of dense white head with moderate retention
S: smells of peaches, wheat malt, and a little sour tinge
T: citric tartness, a bit of peach, cracker like malt, a little more sour with a bit of vinegar this time around, some lemon zest,, and some wheat malt. swallow brings a bit more peach and pale wheat flavor
M: light and creamy with nice and soft carbonation, it trys to be drying but it just has that feel without doing anything
O: A nice and refreshing summer beer from dogfish head that's a little bit different but still very good.

HUGE white foamy head. Brew is slightly murkey white with some nice yellows. No lacing.

Nice peach strikes the nose. Smooth and Kinda funky.

Nice mild carbonation, smooth, wet, and crisp. No off flavors. Peach is subtle and delicate. Refreshing. No tartness though...

This is a very fine brew, one of DFHs best, imo. Refreshing and perfect for a 100+ degree day.

Pours a murky straw colored, golden body with lively bubbles of carbonation dancing to the pure white head that gives way to a sticky, constant lacing throughout the beer.

Fresh aromas of sweet peaches, yeast, and floral hints greet the nose.

The flavor primarily tart offering sour peaches, yeast, and perhaps some lemon zest or other floral notes.

Lighter in body with generous carbonation and a puckering, yet crisp and refreshing finish.

This beer pleasantly surprises me. I feared the peach overwhelming the other elements of the beer, but it is pretty well balanced and the peach is present, but not dominant.
