3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2007 Cloudy Pale Honey Color with No Head. Cereal Grains, Wheat and Peaches Left Out in the Open Air.... Aroma. Light to Medium Body...Subtle Silky Mouthfeel. Initially Carbonated, Then Develops a Juice Quality. Well Balanced Tartness and íAgedí Peach Flavor. Sweet Tart Ending. Some Wheaty Aftertaste and the Tartness Drops Off a Bit...Strictly to Style, Itís Not Nearly as Tart as it Should Be, But if we Assume That Wasnít Exactly What DFH Was Pushing Towards..itís a Very Enjoyable Fruit-Laden Berliner. Very Interesting Concoction. íOurí man at Dogfish Head is one brilliant, creative geek. Hats are Tipped.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 12 oz. bottle, no freshness date, a mini-blurb along the right side of label, sampled in a pint glass.
An unfiltered straw blonde appearance, a large frothy white head that slowly dissipated into a thin layer of rocky suds, takes awhile for this to settle down.
Musty aromas at first, followed by cereal wheat maltiness and a light peach.
Crisp and prickly, but also has a smooth drinkability, light bodied, the peach taste is like biting into a green peach, tart with the fleshly juiciness, some lemony sourness too, cereal wheat malts, dryly tart and wheaty in the finish.
A good summer seasonal from DFH, goes great with the August heat and humidity.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudy, golden color with a white head. Aroma is of peach, hay, wheat, and spices. Wasnít very impressed with the aroma. Flavor starts off tart with the peach flavor that lasts almost throughout. It pretty much covers up all the other flavors. By far my least favorite of the DFH brews. Not really very good.

A very interesting beer. Pours an opaque gold. The aroma is slightly sour with a hint of fruitiness. The peach flavor is very subtle, the primary taste is sweet, sour, refreshing, and a little fruity. This is followed by a crisp, tart mouthpuckering aftertaste. The mouthfeel is crisp and dry.

Doggy aroma. Ok label, sunny wit-like cloudy yellowgold with a big fluffy white head. Sour and tangy, lightly sweet. Medium-light body. Tangy aftertaste with distinct breadiness. True to style.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2008 I am not a fan of fruity beers, and this in fact, is not fruity. It does have a very appealling dry tartness that is quite unique. That being said, the back end is a bit acidic and not at all enjoyable. Iím a huge fan of all things DFH but this is probably my least favorite, not my cup of tea.

Sour is major taste. Peach aroma and taste is modest. Very pale and cloudy appearance. Unique and enjoyable brew!

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
looks like a hoegaarden: slightly browned yellow urine with definite opacity and white head. i wish iíd waited for a hot summer day to try the only bottle i have of this. oh well. the first scent to hit the nose is rank peaches, then a sort of spoiled milk sweet/sourness. after a little while, the nose loses that scent and itís just a nice light peach aroma. flavor isnít bad. it definitely tastes altogether a little underpowered and watery, but that might just be my low abv bias. it tastes something like a sour lemony candy. itís really really watery. maybe thatís why they marketed it as a "dog day" summer beer. too bad i was too drunk to remember anything about the fff berliner weiss i had. probably about the same. i suddenly have a low opinion of people from berlin. even kolsches are better than these.

Bottle: Pours a very cloudy yellow with barely a white head that dissipates to a thin gel like cover. Aroma is tart and very fruity and notes of citrus, definitely can smell the peach. Flavor is slightly sweet and mild sourness with just hints of the peach flavor, and touches of the citrus. The body is light and slightly creamy with a slightly bready finish. Very thirst quenching.

Trust Dogfish to do a sour ale and do it well. Hats off to what is for me, a winner. The nose is a very light peach. The beer pours cloudy with a very thin and very short lasting head. The taste is a lovely sour, a bit thin but with a strong peach finish. Iíll be talking my local packy into carrying this.
