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.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUL 25, 2007
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.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2008 Re-rate 6/17/08. Hazy gold pour with a fizzy white head that quickly dissipates. Grassy sour flavor. Smooth and tart easy to drink. I didnt get any peach flavor until late in the finish

hopscotch (10080) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 24, 2007
BottleÖ Cloudy straw-colored ale with a small, fizzy, white head. Very subtle, restrained aroma; I can only pick out the faintest note of peach puree. Pungent flavor with subtle peach and lemon nuances. Heavily acidic and citric with a very crisp hop bite. Light-bodied with fizzy carbonation. Lengthy, sour, refreshing finish. It sweetens up a bit as it warms and begins to present some unsavory corn and mash notes in the nose. I enjoyed it more when thoroughly chilled.

12oz bottle. Closest thing I have to a bowl is an old Johnnie Walker scotch glass, so that gets duties here. Pours a yellow/orange body, very fizzy, with a rapidly vanishing white head. Nothing more than a few white bubbles after 30 seconds. Man the body on this thing is full of carbonation, looks like a Sprite in the glass. Aroma is a bit muted, but I get some peaches, oranges and lemons in there. Tough to pull though. Fore of the tongue is very sour, full of peaches and lemons, and heavily astringent/acidic. Also get some wheat notes in there. Light to medium bodied, heavily carbonated. Finish is at first sour, then folds into a mellow sweetness that lingers for a good while. First example of this style, and itís damn good. Excellent summer brew. I need more of this.
