Pours very light hazy yellow with a thick and soapy white head. The aroma is all about peaches - very natural smelling. Thin crisp grainy body with subdued sharp carbonation. The flavor starts quite sour, wheaty, grainy, dry peach and spices. The finish adds lemon-ish citric acidity and is very short lasting. This is a nice refreshing summer thirst quencher.

Braudog (5581) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JUL 27, 2007
Bottle: Poured very light yellow, lightly spritzy. The aroma is definitely there, but doesnít have much of a discernable character if maybe a bit of fruity peachiness. It drinks quite tart and sweet, if not quite as over the top as a true Berliner, with just a light peachiness in a canned fruit salad type of way. Good, but not up to the usual awesome standards of DFH. (#3038, 7/27/2007)

OK so, until I read what a "Berliner Weisse" was, I really thought this was not very good. However, it seems to fit the description very well, despite the fact that it is too sour for me. Still canít give it top marks, but I guess DFH knows what they are doing.

12oz bottle dated 6/1/07. pours slightly hazy straw with white head. nose musty, peaches. flavor tart at first but that fades intoa dull peach juice. flavor really lacks depth and finishes short. sorta buttery. DFH what have you done for me lately?

Pours cloudy yellow. What more can I say about this than peaches. Peach dominates the aroma and taste. The taste does have a wheaty quality. Very tart. The peach taste reminds me of a peach jolly rancher. It is somewhat refreshing in the heat.

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy light yellow color. Very thin aroma... yeasty... the peaches donít come through much. The taste on this one blew me away though. Unique. Nice sourness to it, strong peachiness. The finish is a little more subdued... citrus peel, yeast... more hefeweizen. Be careful with this one, itís tricky. ;-) My favorite DFH.

Draft. Very interesting beer. I could really tatse the peach flaor although it tasted too much like pectin, very sweet and drinkable, balances spicy foods well.

This pours a hazy straw body with a smallish head that devolves into a halo rather rapidly. The aroma is a combo of fresh peaches and canned peaches with a mild tartness beneath. That tartness becomes a bit acidic in the flavor, but in a way that works. This gives a lemon-like tang to the drink, the peach flavor still recognizable but subdued. The fruit returns more solidly in the finish along with a mouth-watering sourness. If it wasnít priced so high, Iíd have more of this FRUIT BEER during the remaining warm days of the year.
DFH can call this a neo-Berliner Weisse if they like, but no Berliner Weisse is brewed with fruit. Iím surprized itís labeled as such on the site.

Pours a thin hazy dull straw with thin bright white head. Full jar of peach preserves hits the nose first. Behind that I get sweetness, tartness, yeastiness, earthiness, denim blue jeans and playing cards. The carbonation causes the initial tart taste to burst onto the palate. It starts with an acidic like tartness and then becomes increasingly lemony. The peach takes the flavor from start to finish and adds some balance. Thereís also a pale malt note that turns more into sweet malts by midway and then back to pale to Munich malts at the finish. Very nice summer brew.

12 oz bottle. Poured a clear pale golden-yellow color. Head was thin, white, and reduced rapidly to a tattered bubbly film. The aromas were very subdued consisting of sour fruit, minimal citrus, and a slight whiff of cereal grain. Very acidic on the tongue up front with a sour fleshy fruit flavor. This acidity mellowed in waves, gradually fading to a delicate lingering malty sweetness accompanied by a pleasant but fleeting mild buttery caramel aftertaste. There was also an occasional hint of dry white wine. Very good. I much prefer this to the recent DFH Red & White/Black & Blue releases.
