Thanks to Justin. Mild wheaty aroma with a touch of peach smell, with a bit of funky nose and honey. Pale amber hazy with thin white lacing head. Light bodied with medium fizz. Starts tart and acidic with light peach flavor, mild wheat notes and some funk. Finish is tart but not harsh. Decent attempt at berliner weisse but too wheaty.

worse beer Iíve had from dogfish head. Almost no color at all. faint fruit aroma and a sweeter than sweet taste. This brewery expierments alot and I hope this one is off the production line quick. Try again guys.

12oz bottle, 4pk. Appearance of fresh pressed juice. Cloudy, deep yellow. Aroma of ripe pears. There is an immediate tartness like of a crisp refreshing white wine. Clean and perfect for these killer hot days. Very light bodied and amazingly refreshing.

THOUGHTS: Very weak aroma. Juuuuust a little bit, to paraphrase Bob Uecker. Actually way to tart for me to drink on a regular basis. TECHNICAL: Bottle and on tap at the Grey Lodge. Poure a light to medium, murky yellow with an average white head that moslty diminished, but kept a thin, white cap for a long while. The aroma was all light fruits like apple, pear, peach, pineapple and lemon, but very light. It didnít smell bad, I just couldnít smell much of anything. The initial flavor was light to moderate sweetness, heavy acidity and sourness, while the finish was moderately to heavily sweet, harshly acidic and sour with an average duration. It was the most tart beer Iíve ever tried. The domininant flavoras were light citrus fruits. The body was very hard to rate becuase the tarness was distracting my mouth from anything else. But the light to medium body was dry and lightly fizzy with a heavy to harsh astringent finish.

A rather odd sort of ale. Lots of peach going on, but little else. Not even much of a beer flavor. But, donít get me wrong, this is a keeper for the fact thereís no doubt thisíll loosen up the gals. Doesnít taste bad since I like peaches. amazing thereís any alcoholic content. This would be perfect for the drive to work. You nail down the shakes and get some vitamin C. Thatís pretty solid.

BBB63 (6507) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 19, 2007
Bottle carefully poured in my Hoegaarden tumbler so it is mostly clean straw hued with a fading fizzy head and zip for lace. The aroma has a nice wheaty and grainy tone along with moderate acidity, rose hips and almost no hint of peach. The taste is where this stands out with a crisp sour lemon-like acidic overtone supported by mild grains. Once again, if there were any peach additions you canít find them under the layer of sour tartness. For me this is a GOOD THING for I am not a fan of most peach beers. The finish is dry and most clean minus the mouth watering that is caused by the acidity. The mouth feel is sprite and tingly. A above average summer refresher but you need to dig the sour stuff to really enjoy this. WOW, a newer DFH beer I found worthy of another bottle.

tough to comment on this one because i have never had this style before. the nose is almost non-existant. the flavor is very sour and has strong peach notes. i hate to say it but it almost tastes like bud light with a peach flavor

12 oz bottle. Murky yellow gold with a white head. Sour peachy nose, somewhat acidic and citrus. Light citrus sour and peach flavors. Nice for the summer.

Bottled May 24, 2007; Sampled August 2007
Pours with a hazy, yellowish, gold colored body and is topped by a frothy, meringue white head. The aroma is lightly tart, with a solid, wheat like, grainy aroma. The acidity leans towards / accentuates a nice fruitiness; notes of peaches, apricots and orange blossoms are noticeable as part of the fruit component.

Lightly tart, quite light bodied, actually the combination is really quite refreshing. The beer is very dry, yet the peach / fruit flavors are still noticeable. Almost more aromatic than fruit flavored. Lactic acid tasting, which at times is quite dry and bracing. At other times though, the nectar-like fruitiness adds a softness and a perceived sweetness which softens the total effect of this beer. Flavors of citrus-honey, orange blossoms, peaches & apricots all form layers of the tart fruit flavors found in this beer.

This is a really nice brew for the Summer season; light, refreshing, fruity, simplistic at times, it really captures the essence of a hot weather refresher. I could easily have drunk a couple pints of this on this 100įF + day.
