BEER INFO

Dogfish Head Craft Brewery
Delaware, United States
dogfish.com

Style: Berliner Weissbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.50%

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!

I tend to only review beers I dislike only to warn people who are about to spend their money on an expensive six pack.
This is another example of how DFH should stay away from fruit beers.
DFH is one of my favorite breweries but this beer feels phoned in. I may expect to much from Sam C. but this beer comes across as alcohol with peach concentrate.
It is thin and without redeeming quality.

Had this on 2012-01-22 in Columbia, PA

A - Hazy straw with a short white head and very little lace. Looks like a wheat beer without the big head.

S - Peach forward, sour yeast, light wheat.

T - Peach is present but not very sweet and nicely subdued compared to the smell. More sour than I expected, which I was also glad of. There a hint of apple blossoms and some pleasant wheat malt. Dries quickly and the sour-peachy aftertaste lingers for a little bit then dissapears.

M - Light-medium body and carbonation. Smooth and crisp. Refreshing.

O - Lots of flavor and thankfully, sour enough to meet my needs. My wife likes it a lot too. We talked about how we enjoyed this quite a bit more than the Monk's Cafe Flemish Red, which is sweeter.
