    Howdy,
    I was talking to my friend today and we were discussing our favorite fruit beers. Certainly apricot, kriek, and framboise were all mentioned; however, upon discussion I believe peach is my favorite fruit in beers from the ones I've tried. So far I've tried, Tahoe Mountain récolte du bois and Logsdon Peche 'n brett Do any fellow ba's have any recommendations on peach beers?

    I don't know if Telegraph's Obscura Peche is still available, but if so, it sure sounds tasty.

    Fantasia was good, as was Perennial's Peach Berliner Weisse and Sour in the Rye with Peaches. Festina Peche is also a damned good beer, haters be damned.

    I hear DFH's Festina Lente is supposed to be out of this world

    It was brewed once in 2004, so I'd have to say it will be a challenge to find that one. Festina Peche on the other hand is great and available.

    If you live around here you are lucky to be able to get Sloop Sauer Peach. Best one I've tried is Fantasia, though.

    RJ Rockers Son of a Peach is probably the most peach forward beer I have had, their Impeachment (now called Peachy King) is pretty legit as well. There is a small Brew Pub called Quigley's Pint and Plate near Myrtle Beach that had a really good peach beer also.

    Cisco Pechish Woods was out of control. Easily one of the best sours/wilds I've had

    Scored a 4 pack of Festina Peche last night at some small liquor store I'd never been by before. No big deal except...it was $6.95. I couldn't believe it.

    I thought Persica Blend 1 was significantly better than Peche n Brett. Peche n Brett was overly peachy and didnt let the base saison shine enough.

    Fantasia and Chez Monus are on the docket over the next 2 days so I will have to report back

    Like everyone has said, Festina Peche is definitely solid (especially when you mix it with 90 Minute). Another decent one is Maggie's Peach Farmhouse Ale out of Terrapin.

    Short's Peaches and Cream and Great Divide's Peach Grand Cru are pretty peachy.

    Peach Wheach from O'Fallon. Not a world class beer, but I enjoy it every summer.

    Festina Peche is the only one that comes to mind for me, but it's a very good option.

    I'm hoping it's Joe Peche, this weekend! Their Peach of a Pale, is probably my favorite so far, followed by DFH Festina Peche.

    I second the Upland Peach Lambic vote. Call me crazy, but I say Peach>Persimmon (I can only speak for the recent batch).

    Nobody has said Peche Mortel?!?

    :wink:

    In seriousness, my faves are Peche N' Brett and Tree Shaker. Festina Peche and Perennial Peach Berliner Weisse are both decent as well.

    Halia is delicious.

    Peche n Brett is the gold standard in my opinion

    Fantasia is also excellent ( i had one last night!)

    It doesn't get any love on this site, but I'm a fan of Terrapin Maggie's Peach Farmhouse Ale.

    New Belgium's Eric's Ale is the best of 'em all. They're supposed to re-release it in the next year, too.
