2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudy, golden color with a white head. Aroma is of peach, hay, wheat, and spices. Wasnít very impressed with the aroma. Flavor starts off tart with the peach flavor that lasts almost throughout. It pretty much covers up all the other flavors. By far my least favorite of the DFH brews. Not really very good.

A very interesting beer. Pours an opaque gold. The aroma is slightly sour with a hint of fruitiness. The peach flavor is very subtle, the primary taste is sweet, sour, refreshing, and a little fruity. This is followed by a crisp, tart mouthpuckering aftertaste. The mouthfeel is crisp and dry.

Doggy aroma. Ok label, sunny wit-like cloudy yellowgold with a big fluffy white head. Sour and tangy, lightly sweet. Medium-light body. Tangy aftertaste with distinct breadiness. True to style.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2008 I am not a fan of fruity beers, and this in fact, is not fruity. It does have a very appealling dry tartness that is quite unique. That being said, the back end is a bit acidic and not at all enjoyable. Iím a huge fan of all things DFH but this is probably my least favorite, not my cup of tea.

Sour is major taste. Peach aroma and taste is modest. Very pale and cloudy appearance. Unique and enjoyable brew!

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
looks like a hoegaarden: slightly browned yellow urine with definite opacity and white head. i wish iíd waited for a hot summer day to try the only bottle i have of this. oh well. the first scent to hit the nose is rank peaches, then a sort of spoiled milk sweet/sourness. after a little while, the nose loses that scent and itís just a nice light peach aroma. flavor isnít bad. it definitely tastes altogether a little underpowered and watery, but that might just be my low abv bias. it tastes something like a sour lemony candy. itís really really watery. maybe thatís why they marketed it as a "dog day" summer beer. too bad i was too drunk to remember anything about the fff berliner weiss i had. probably about the same. i suddenly have a low opinion of people from berlin. even kolsches are better than these.

Bottle: Pours a very cloudy yellow with barely a white head that dissipates to a thin gel like cover. Aroma is tart and very fruity and notes of citrus, definitely can smell the peach. Flavor is slightly sweet and mild sourness with just hints of the peach flavor, and touches of the citrus. The body is light and slightly creamy with a slightly bready finish. Very thirst quenching.

Trust Dogfish to do a sour ale and do it well. Hats off to what is for me, a winner. The nose is a very light peach. The beer pours cloudy with a very thin and very short lasting head. The taste is a lovely sour, a bit thin but with a strong peach finish. Iíll be talking my local packy into carrying this.

bottle, from Cary Wholefoods. Ok aroma. Mainly corn & wheat. Little funk about it. Kind of stinky. Cloudy yellowy gold color, small to no head, little ring actually. Tart flavor, better than aroma, some of the peach is detectable. Wheat too. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel, tart dry finish. Eh, not much here to excite meFlavor was good and I did like how there was a significant difference between the aroma & flavor. So whatís a Neo berliner weisse?

Festina Peche is a white pear colored ale with a fizzy white head. The aroma is of peach candy. It is thin and tannic in the mouth. The flavor is tart and acidic. More citrus than peach. It tastes like diet lemon iced tea. Missed the boat on this one!
