3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle thanks to Secret Santa. Pale apricot color with aromas of tart peaches. Sour and sweet aromas led to a flavor that was actually more sudued than I had expected it to be. It was very tart peach without being overly so. I really liked it.

Thanks to Shigadeyo for another trade. Hazy light golden with a small white head. Aroma is grassy and semi tart. Flavor is quite tart and acidic. Could not detect any peaches at all. Overall it is pretty refreshing and interesting. Sort of reminded me of Alka Seltzer. Thanks again Craig.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Enjoyable summer beer, in limited quantities. Simple tart nose with some floral or fruity notes. Surprisingly unattractive cloudy gray pale straw body and a small head. Interestingly tart, citrus flavor with some contrasting sweetness. Thin mouth. Significant bonus points for coming in under 5% alcohol ... a drinkable session beer from DFH.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2008 Very interesting! Dry, sour, and little peachy. I am surprised by the category "Berliner Weiss". Thought of it more as a cross between Peche and Gueuze lambics. I’d like to try another.
I just now had one out of the bottle and it was not as good. I would rate that a 2.9-3 taking points from flavor and aroma. 8.28.08

Bottle. Cloudy wit-like yellow body. Acidic wheat and peach aroma with a very refreshing dry, tart wheat flavor with just a nuance of peach - nothing overbearing. Very quaffable, refreshing stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample from growler filling station at Shorline Beverage in Huntington Station NY. Pours a cloudy yellow color with a very nice white head. Aroma was filled with perfumey peaches... almost like peach candy, sorta surreal. Flavor was pleasant with some tingly acidity on entry and fading into a mellow round soft peach character in the finish. Some hints of malt mix with the peach mid-palate and hints of lactic acidity along with residual peach flavor in the finish. Not an overabundant wild character, but definitely present. Mouthfeel features a somewhat creamy body that is cut by the acidity. Some residual gravity seems attributable to the peaches beacuse as the acidity fades, the peach presence is similar to the residual mouthfeel of an actual peach. Overall, a very nice beer! Highly enjoyable and very appropiate for a warm summer evening. Wish I had got the full growler rather than the 10oz sample.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy yellow color with a small white head. Strong aroma of citrus, wheat and peaches. Very crisp on the palate. Wonderful taste that starts very tart and finishes (still tart) smooth. I can taste the peaches, but the great sour citrus notes temper the sweetness. Another Dogfish Head success!

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz - Pungent aroma of wet musty malts, lemon and grassy hops. Pours cloudy yellow with a small head and good lacing. Flavor is stronger than I expected. Very tart lemon and peach with a cardboard malt finish. Palate is sour and crisp. Different and worth trying, but I don’t think I could drink two in a row.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours cloudy and deep yellow with a medium-sized white head. The aroma is strong with lemon zest, sour fruit, and wheat. The flavor is sour with some sweetness. There are hints of peaches and apricots, but also of lemon and lime. The middle of the tongue picks up some sweetness to balance the sourness, but not much - it reminds me greatly of a dry champagne. The finish is short, crisp, and dry. The mouthfeel tickles from carbonation, is dry, and is light in body. Overall, an interesting and refreshing beer, but this brewery makes much better stuff.

Milky, very pale yellow color, interesting. Very grainy, and tart peachy aroma. WOW. Very sour for beer, like those sour patch kids candies. Lemony/ sort of peachy, much less than expected. Sourness overwhelms the flavor. Very unique.
