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!

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Pours a bright semi-golden color with plenty of carbonation and a bone-white head.

Aromas begin with light with the peach scents coming through in addition to same pale/grainy malt. Eh...

The taste is semi-tart. Less like a peach and more toward the tartness of a not-quite-ripe apricot. Lots of grainy, wheat and pale malt. Blah...

The mouthfeel is medium to light bodied; quite acidic and tart. Light body through the finish.

Overall just as unmemorable and blah as I remembered from the bottle. Even on a hot day this would be less than enjoyable. Pass...

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

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a nonic pint glass.

Appearance: Cloudy pale-golden color with a medium white head that dissipates quickly and doesn't leave behind any lace.

Smell: Sweet and tart peach is dominant with some sweet malt in the background.

Taste: Peach sweetness that rounds out to tart peach and finishes with some wheaty and bready malt.

Mouthfeel: Lighter bodied with crisp, well-rounded carbonation and a watery, very refreshing finish.

Overall: A very good beer. This would be great to drink on a hot summer day.
