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: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Pour a crystal clear golder yellow. White head that fades quick. Really no head retention on this one, and lacing is minimal.

S: Peaches. Some slight bread and malty notes.

T: From the smell you would think the peach character on this would be very present in the taste, its actually not so. The is a peachy presence but it is in the background. This beer is rather tart and almost reminds me of a dry peach cider if that makes sense. Really nice.

M: Heavy carbonation. Crisp and refreshing. Definitely a decent summertime drinker.

O: This beer is pretty odd, but if you enjoy fruitier dry beers this one is definitely worth a shot. I will be purchasing more.
