OH it all makes sense now. had a bottle of this stuff last night and was kinda let down that dogfish made this but after reading exactly what a Berliner Weisse should include this seems to be a good example of the style. It was very sour and not much at all like a beer. feels like champagne on the palate. the pour is gorgeous, hazy gold. refreshing. if you rate this without considering the style than the score would be low but taking into account what dogfish head was trying to accomplish i would recommend this brew to someone who had never had the style.

What happened? I was so looking forward to the Festina Peche (bottle), but it was tough to get through just 12 ounces of the stuff. It looked tasty enough, like a hazy, bright yellow liquid candy, but it was way too sour. Of course, I want to say that it didn’t even taste like beer (I was expecting more wheat or esters), but lambics don’t either and I still love them. Again, what happened? I usually like beers that defy popular notions of how beer should taste, but I honestly thought the Festina Peche was nearly undrinkable. I was sitting outdoors in Tucson at the beginning of September, and this beer didn’t stand up to any of the hefes, wit- or weissbiers that I drank to cool off.

Ughsmash (7507) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 10, 2007
Bottled. Poured a hazy, paler yellow with not much sticking around head-wise. The aroma picked up sweet and tart peaches and light wheaty notes.. rather on the simple side, but quite enjoyable. The flavor found tart vinegar and peachy notes on the tip of the tongue with lemon and vinegar zest riding through the finish.. very tasty! Lighter-bodied and super-refreshing on the palate with a tart finish. Nice one!

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 10, 2007
Cloudy yellow body with almost no head. Aroma has a lot of peach but not fresh just-picked-off-the-tree peach. More like Del Monte canned peach. Taste is more of the same, the peach dominate but there’s also light green apples and white grapes flavours. Rather sour and tart. Un unexpected dusty (yeast?) mouthfeel was not welcomed for a beer which main goal is to be a fruity refreshment. Hops are nowhere to be found. Peach just ain’t my favourite fruit. I can really appreciate fruity yeast developing a peach flavour but here we’re talking about pure peach concentrate, too much for me. Almost didn’t feel like a beer per say, more like a "cooler" drink although much better than the industrial coolers. Peach, yes, peachy, not really.

Drank a four pack of these at a football tailgate. This is the perfect summer beer. It reminds me of Clearly Canadian peach. It doesn’t smell the best when you first open it. The taste is very peachy on the front and a sour aftertaste. This beer is much better than the DFH Aprihop. Overall, a nice summer refreshing beer.

A deep Orange beer with a thin head. This beer had a deep fruity aroma from the start. The beer was very sour in my opinion. There was a deep fruity flavor and the sour finish made this not an average Fruit/Berliner Weisse beer. Just some odd sour notes in the finish this was not my beer but I am sure others will like it.

Boutip (5806) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 7, 2007
Bottle courtesy of SS: Poured a cloudy bright yellow color beer with a big huge pure white foamy head with good retention. Aroma of tart malt with a hint of fruit sweetness. Taste is quite tart but not up to a lambic level with some light fruit sweetness. Body is about average with some great carbonation. I’m not sure what to make of this one or really to expect since I know so very little of the style. I sure couldn’t have tell there was peach in there and would have loved more tartness but that just me.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 4, 2007
Poured a pale yellow body with minimal fizzy white head. Nose of tart sweet peaches and reminiscent of sour peach candies. Great effervescent mouth feel, taste, and finish. Wonderfully crafted one-of-a-kind beer. Mmmm!

Single bottle from Total Wine in Jacksonville, FL. Pours a pale yellow with no head. Aroma is all peaches. Taste is all peaches with a tart bitterness to it. Is this wine? Not typical of Dogfish, glad I got to buy a single.

Svesse (7727) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 4, 2007
(Bottle, Oliver Twist, Stockholm) Pale yellow colour with brief white head. Tart, fruity nose with notes of apricots. Fruity, lactic, tart taste with notes of peaches and mandarin. The fruit stays in the background. Tart finish with some bitterness (not sure it comes from hops). Dry, refreshing, very different beer.
