3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2009 Appearance: Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a medium, white head that vanished in the time it took me to shoo the roommate’s cat out of the room. Way to go, Daphne the Cat!
Smell: Faint, slightly musty aroma of damp hay and Del Monte canned peaches with an underlying tartness.
Taste: Moderately tart flavors of wheat and peach juice. Slight saltiness along with a mild citrus taste on the crisp finish.
Mouthfeel: Extremely light-bodied. Light carbonation.
Drinkability: A peach of a thirst quencher!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a cloudy straw yellow with alot of carbonation. A little peach in the nose but mostly a sour/tartness. Very tart flavor with that sour candy aftertaste that you get from a crybaby. Good experiment but I don’t see this as much more than beer with sour acid poured in.

Snagglepuss aroma of mild malts and slight peaches. Cloud lightgold in color with littlehead and lots of effervesence. Husky and tart, we got a flash of baing soda followed by a healthy dose of sourness. Kind of like an alka-seltzer. Interesting and quaffable.

[bottle] Very nice, ultra-pale straw color, with a bit of white lacing. Aroma is of peaches, tart wheat and acid. Sour wheat flavors, with some understated peach below the strong acidity. Very dry finish. A decent beer, overall.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very cloudy yellow with a rapidly disappearing head. Aroma of wheat with traces of light peach. Light mouthfeel with a clean yet sour flavor. Very lively beer. I admit I went into this tasting believing I wouldn’t like this beer and it far exceeded my expectations.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Pours cloudy gold with white head. The aroma is earth, fruit, socks, and bready yeast. The flavor is tart at first, with some zest and subtle peach. The middle gets very prickly and refreshing, which leads to an acidic finish with a big yeasty presence. Pretty refreshing; I think I’ve decided that I like it.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. This beer is but a shell of what the retired Festina Lente was. I had high hopes for this beer, but found it to be a big dissapointment. This beer pours to a hazy, pale yellow color, with a slight white head that fades, and a moderate carbonation. The nose really doesn’t have a whole lot going on, with light hints of peach aroma, and some grainy wheat. The palate is a touch tart, with some wheat malt flavor, and a touch of peach flavor. This beer finishes with some tart wheat malt, a touch of sourness, and then end dry. Not a bad beer, but hardly anything to write home about. This beer is nothing like a Berliner Weisse, and while it has some sourness, and ends dry, this beer isn’t close to that classic beer style. A nice summer refresher, and it would go well with lighter fare, but again, this beer was a let down for me.

Hmmmm, this beer wasnt terrible, but not really that great. Aroma is wheaty with a very slight peachy sweetness to it. Flavor was refreshing,but not nearly as peachy as i expected. Ov erall the tart was not that sharp.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Cloudy yellow, brief head. The nose is a strange thing. When people around me drinking the same beer were aroused by the aroma, all I sensed was sweaty feet. It’s definitely very dry and tart. The peach is not overpowering at all, but just sits as a compliment to the citric acidity. It’s certainly not your dull everyday brewpub fruit ale, it is more refined than that. It works a sa thirst quencher on a hot day, but I cannot say I really like it.
