Hangover (1060) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - JUL 29, 2007
Very cloudy light orange/straw color with some nice carbonation streamers. Lemon aroma with some wheat. When warmed a bit, the peach does come out, however slight. Very tart taste. Borderline sour, but notsomuch. The peach does indeed become apparent after the initial tartness subsides. Mild citrus, faint orange zest. Finish is dry. My first of this style and it’s pretty good.

Sampled this on tap at Capital Alehouse Innsbrook and in bottle this past week. Hazy very pale yellow appearance, nice head, attractive. Aroma of smooth wheat, with a touch of peach that was more apparent in the draft version. Flavor was a mix of wheat, again not grainy, tartness, a touch of peach, creamy yeast, and a dry finish. Well balanced. Peach more apparent on draft, it was more of a hint in the bottled form. Refreshing and quite enjoyable, one of the better drinking experimental brews from DFH in recent memmory. Nice. Really nice.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2010 12 oz bottle. Or three 12 oz bottles from New Beer Distrubutors in NYC. Put the bottles in some ice to get cold. Aroma is peach and citrus (lemon). Taste is sweet but not like a fruit beer, more constrained with some tartiness. This beer was very smooth and refreshing. Great!

OldMrCrow (1870) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 29, 2007
Tap at Uber.

White head and a hazy body, tart aroma with some light funkiness. The flavor is not deeply sour, just tart, lemon and of course the peach flavors, no residual peach sweetness, the funkiness coming through with a kind of sour musty flavor. It goes down smooth, not enough sour blast to be mouth-puckering, but not at all bad.

This is a fairly reasonable warm day beer, though not one I’d be likely to visit frequently.

TURDFERGUSON (3961) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 28, 2007
Several bottles and on draught through a fresh peach filled randall at BCTC ’07. The randallized version was awesome. Poured a murky yellowish straw with a little, sudsy white lace. Nose is tart peaches, wheat, lemon juice. Flavor is similar to aroma and the peaches are much more present in the radallized version as opposed to the regular version. A refreshing beer and a very nice to see from dfh. I wish they would just brew the Festina Lente again.

Dorwart (2378) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUL 28, 2007
Thin bright white head of fine bubbles. Light grassy aroma with maybe a hint of peach. Some hops presence with a little bit of citrus. Color is a light clear gold. Wow, succulent flavor. Some sourness and tartness but not enough to make you pucker. Totally makes your mouth salivate though and beg for more. Light flavor with more grassy flavors and more peach presence. Light crisp and refreshing. Finiishes clean and dry. Lingering dry tart peachyness. Very good. Not sure how much of this I can drink before it becomes tooo dry and hard to swallow. Either that or when I can’t produce any more saliva because I have used it all up.

I am diggin it! This is a welcome find after the drought. Since Berliner Weiss is no longer available as a regular import to the good ol’ US of A, I went ahead and gave this a try. I have always thought DFH ended up going overboard with the whole "extreme beer" thing that they are known for, but this little brew might just signal a return to sanity. The wheat malt is VERY up front and works to create a dry/tart profile to die for. The lactic fermentation takes the sour/tart sensation a step further. VERY German and quite the tasty beer. They added the peaches in the wort so that they were fermented down and not syrupy sweet in the finished product...good call. You get a slight essence of fruit that doesn’t overpower the glory of the wheat. GO GET SOME.

malt aftertaste, sour throughout, not too much peach, in a bottle, over-priced, but not terrible

a cloudy light straw colored beer with a large sudsy white head that diminishes quickly. just a light hint of peach in aroma. flavor is slightly tart with a hint of peach. only lightly salty. carbonation is high. dry finish. i like the peach addition....not too much ya know? but it could be more tart and salty.
