3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy light golden color. Aromas of light peach juice, yeast, and a hint of sweet malt. The flavor is balanced quite well, with sweet peach juice, bready yeast, and slightly sour malt. The finish is sour but not overpowering. I prefer this offering to the traditional syrup plus beer arrangement, as here you have slight sourness balanced with fresh fruit. Very enjoyable...

draft: clear yellow, not much for lacing or retention. Looked very much like a macrobrew. Aroma is grass, lighter fruits, sweet and tart peaches, some wheat. Light body, sweet tart finish. Sorta came off like a blonde ale with peaches added.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a bone white head. Aromas of light sour, cooked peach juice and a bit of peach skin...light yeast and slight barnyard characteristics. Flavors of moderate sour, cooked peaches, sort of creamy dry malt, lemon, a tinge of funk as well. Fairly light bodied with a subdued yet tickling carbonation...sort of fruity sweet in the front with some light sourness...malty/lightly sweet/dry with a creamy spot in the middle with a sour/citrus dry finish. Pretty neat brew, the only thing that throws me off is the creamy character...overall though a nice change of pace from DFH, and while this reminds me a bit of the Festina Lente...it is no where near as sour.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not a bad offering according to style. A Berliner Weisse is usually quite sour and served with a syrup to balance the drink. This has been brewed to conventional tradition and recipe, and in lieu of syrup, peaches have been added to contrast the sour notes. This pours hazy straw into the glass, with an initial 2-finger head, diminishing to a ring with trace lace. Grainy nose, with the slightest of skunk. The flavors are light, dry and sour... a Pinot Grigio in beer form is a very good comparative. Very, very unripened peaches are felt (within the sours) as effervescence. Slight wheat shows up in the mid-palate, ever-so-light and just before the sours. Sours continue into the finish, and cleanse the palate of heavy foods, especially those that contain poignant flavors. The mouthfeel is light, sharp and zesty, and makes for a nice stylistic representation.

On tap at Moan and Dove in Mass., the no.1 rated bar in the country. Light and cloudy. Peach and wheat flavour. Bit of head and lace. Straight up peach flavour, above average carbonation. A bit fruit soda taste, medium or lighter mouthfeel.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Cloudy gold. Head disappears in the blink of an eye. Spotty foam and bubbles on the surface. Aroma is lemony and tart with grains, yeast and faint peach. Taste is very tart, Lots of lemon and yeast with the wheat coming through on the back end along with the peach notes. Subtle maltiness throughout. Body is light, bubbly, tart, acidic, dry and astringent. Make that very tart and astringent! Finishes with more lemon, tart fruits, big yeast, wheat and soft peach. To me the peach is barely detectable in my bottle. Nice beer. I can imagine this going well with the food suggestions in the description.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle, rated 7/13/07. Pours a nice cloudy (!!!!) bright goldenrod color with rocky dense foam. Very nice unripened peach aroma. Flavor is bone dry, almost astringent, with lots of dry peachyness. IMHO, one of DFH better experiments and thank fictional deity they didn’t make it 15%abv.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy, pale straw color with a thin, soap sudsy, white head that quickly disappeared. Light aroma of wheat, peach, and lemons. The flavor was decidedly sour with some wheat, peach, and a bit of lemon. Actually, it reminded me of when I was a kid and my father would mix whiskey sour mix in the blender when they had friends over. The aroma smelled like real peaches, but I have to say the flavor seemed more like imitation peach sweet tarts or packaged sour mix. Not worth the hype, or the price, in my opinion.

Bottle. I wanted to see what the hub bub was about this brew. Pours a straw hazen yellow. Aroma light lemony wheaten peach. The flavor was sharp, tart, slight peach, definitely not too sweet. Palate was light very crisp. Overall I’m pleased to have tried it as it may entice me to buy some more.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy white-yellow body, dense lasting stark white head. The aroma is lightly sweet, peach, lemon, wheat. The flavor is nice, lightly tart with a good nuttiness, the peach really adds a nice flavor twist while, thankfully, it is not overly sweet. The palate is light and crisp. Enjoyable and interesting. Glad to see that it is not an attempt at an Imperial Berliner Weisse, can you imagine! Ugghh...
