Okay, I must be missing something. I thought this was awful. Peachy bath water. I couldnít finish it. I guess I donít have the sophisticated taste buds of the other rankers.

Bottle-Poured a golden color with a small,quickly dissappearing head.Never had this style before,so the flavor which was very tart(with hints of peaches) was surprising.However once I started sipping it,it really was not that bad,just different.

short and quick thin white head. cloudy golden yellow body. aroma is under-ripe and tart white peaches in early spring. flavor is light, tart, stone fruits, and a bit astringent. an unusual anise flavor in the aftertaste. peachy-white under-ripe tartness in the finish. thanks Paul!

12 oz. bottle at Flat Rock Saloon. Poured hazy, almost flurorescent golden. VERY weak nose. Flavor was of a very tart, peach-like tone. Definitely reminds me of the Festina Lente, just toned down a few notches.

Tap @ Blind Tiger, NYC. Pours an opaque orange with a quickly-dissipating head. Aroma is slight wheat with a strong peach and sour note thrown in. Aroma is a mixture of earth notes, peach, with a sour aftertaste. A pretty good Berliner weisse

A solid Berliner Weisse with the seemingly requisite syrupy sweetness. Good bitterness and balanced peach additions. In all, a good beer, tough style.

hanks to beastiefan2k for this beer! Cloudy, dark golden blonde in color. No head at all to speak of. The aroma is very mild - filled with a refreshing wheatiness paired with very soft notes of peach essence. The flavor is quite tart. The citrus bursts into your mouth. It is the most dominant character in this beer. Itís a little much for me, actually. It might be better for me if I had a syrup to pour into it! (I know, itís a shameful thought...syrup in beer...oh well).

notalush (4766) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 6, 2007
Thanks to beastiefan2k for this bottle - very cloudy, yet glowing gold pour, with a large, fizzy, short-lived head - lemony aroma, with notes of grape skins and a very faint peach sweetness - tart lemon flavors up front, followed by slight lacto character, some dry, mineral-like qualities, and light wheat flavors - the peach becomes somewhat apparent in the finish - kind of refreshing, but lacking the complexity and crispness I expected it to have.

matta (1140) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 6, 2007
Pours an unfiltered murky shade of orange and a tall billowing white head. The aroma and flavor pull out all the stops. The peach is only an accent to the Berliner Weisse there of. Peach can be found gently in the aroma and softly melded into the finish. Earthy suggestions of wet hay and wheat, an old barn stall, the beginnings of a blue cheese. Most obvious and upfront are the funky tart, lemony, acidic suggestion of lactic acid. It eats away the sweetness and leaves behind a brilliantly dry and tart finish.

I canít even begin to describe how elated I am that DFH is taking sour beers mainstream. Will it have a mass consumer successÖ thatís to be determined; but regardless, Festina Peche was largely successful with my abnormal palate. Iím on to my second case in 3 weeks. This is a new favorite and easily the most abstract and awesome summer beer Iíve ever experienced!
