3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Iíll be a monkeyís uncle, a shade of gold/yelllow that looks appealing. Light haze, thin white head, mostly diminishing. Looks similar to cider but sedated. The aroma is sweet and fruity, with notes of peach, lemon, yeast, mild hops and wheat malt. Very soft, simple, nearing a perfumed level of sweetness but never crossing that thin line. The flavor is quite tart, wheaty, spicy and exciting. Sweet peaches and light apples mingle with light sourness that quickly succumbs to mild bitterness and moderate to high acidity. Wow, this is really well done. Carbonation is very prickly in the mouthfeel but seems appropriate and complimentary to the flavor profile. Finishes lemony, with peach flavor dropping off fast, acidic, balanced(that may be pushing it, though itís neither too sweet nor too dry) and lightly bitter. A fun warm weather drink, zippy as hell. Bites where itís enjoyable, like a good sour candy. Unfortunately, a third of the way through a pint, soda-like sweetness builds and sticks to the tongue, decreasing enjoyment due to an acidity and bitterness level too low to break it up. Score suffers because of this.

(Bottled on 05/31/2007) Light, crisp, sour, and dry. The peach element is on the restrained side, which is good. The palate is electric with a nice zip of lemon and lime peel. Overall, a nice summer beer that is refreshing and easy to drink, but not too complex.

Poured into a pint glass. The pale yellow, hazy color was highlighted by notes of light orange. There was a decent white head that helped lace the side of the glass. The scent was of orange, spice, peach, wheat and sweetness. The taste is very sour and biting, but very refreshing at the same time. I really enjoyed this beer, as the sourness played nicely off the sweetness of the peach.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle via trade with Ughamash. Thanks Jason. Pours golden yellow with a head that quickly lost its muster, and is now a meager bright white ring. Aroma is a dainty peach, with not much else. the taste is sweet, somewhat peechy, big and highly acidic. The taste comes out of nowhere from such an underwhelming nose. Certainly better than syrup mixed berliner weisses I had in Berlin.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2007 330ml bottle courtesy of dsnowden, thanks!. pours very light yellow, next to no head.
aroma is VERY VERY slight peach, and some sour funk. flavour is tart, and slightly sour with a touch of sweetness, and i wouldnít say its peach. I"m getting a mealy, grainy aftertaste. This is more of a sour wattery german hefe. Its decent and drinkable, but iím not getting any peach at all

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy light straw color with a thin white head. Light peach/apricot aromas with mild acidic background. Light effervescent palate. Taste starts with a decent sour tang and the middle and finish are more fruity with the sourness fading out a little but still present. Maybe a little thin, but refreshing in the heat.

Bottle pours a hazy light beige/yellow witha fizzy white head. Light malty aroma with some orange zest and wheat malt. Flavor is tart and the fruit is not obviously peach. Dry and quite tart. Clean quick dry finish.
Thanks Jake65 for this one.

Dusty pale yellow pour with a large white head. Nose is gentle with citrus and wheat, even a little peach. The flavor is where the fruitiness begins to shine. Peach, citrus, and tropical fruit sensations. Sweet and tart with a little dry pucker feeling. Enjoyable. Thanks Slob!

Pours glowing yellow, and basically no head. Aroma of kight peaches. Taste is pretty sour and very lemony. Itís had a lsight detection of peaches in the aftertaste but they must have fermented out. The sourness is tthe big role player here with the almost lemonade flavor. Pretty tart and refreshing itís not a bad summer beer.
