3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours straw tan with a thin pure white head and plenty of pinhead orbs hugging the concave of the glass. Aroma is peaches and wheat(?). Sweet like those fruit juice sodas at the store. Tons of underripe peaches(quite tart instead of sweet).
Nice spring or summer beer but too much fruit to drink more than one or two at a shot.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a cloudy golden color with a nice white head. It had a big aroma of citrus fruits, wheat, and peaches. The taste was definitely full of peaches and wheat, and was a little bit sour. The sourness was more tart than anything. I also taste other citrus fruits as well. It is different than anything Iíve add, and very interesting for sure. The finish was crisp with the tartness lingering for a bit. It is good and definitely worth trying.

12oz bottle via trade with stegosaurus! - Thanks Joe! - Pours cloudy golden with a short white fizzy head. Aromas of slight peach and a little citrus. Flavor is slight peach as well but a lot of lemon tartness also. Some light grains too. Fairly fizzy on the palate but light and refreshing and pretty nice.. True to the style and quite interesting.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle. Hazy yellow pour producing a substatnial white head that endures tolerably well. Teh peach aroma is there, but subdued, and there is a nice sour citrusy characterthat seems more evident. Lively carbonation and a light body with a clean palate come together for a very refreshing quality. Sour and acidic with only the faintest touch of sweetness and a bit of bitterness at the finish add to the refreshing nature. This is a really nice beer for hot weather.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2007 12 oz bottle. Pour is a really cloudy yellow/gold. Not much of a head. Aroma is slightly peachy, but also sour. I see that the official style is listed as a berliner weisse, and the flavor profile has similarities to a weisse, but the fruit sweetness isnít what I want in my berliner weisse. I do agree with the food pairings, fish or salad. Not too bad. Body is a little sharp carbonation and a tart puckering finish.

Comes out of the bottle a cloudy yellow. Aroma is of peaches and citrus. Flavor is very sour, more lemony than peach. It has a nice finish, very crisp and clean. I am not familar with the style so I really canít judge it against anything else. I do like it though. You have to give Dogfish credit for trying.

Tap @ Coleís. Cloudy milky yellow, thin head. Nose is faint lemon, faint wheaty malt, a hint of blueberry, maybe some bread. Flavor is lactic wheaty lemon. Some tart fruit (an unidentifiable berry) gets stronger towards the finish. Very refreshing - probably more interesting than the Kindl which was my only previous Berliner Weisse. A bit more wheat in the finish leading into dough & lemon zest.
