Poured a cloudy golden color, with a thin white head. Had a tart taste of peaches, lemon, and other citrus fruit, spices, and finished like a hefeweizen, sweet and bland. Had a weird feeling in the mouth of how the carbonation and sourness reacted. Thanks for sharing Dragonstout.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2008 Update, draft, Spring/Summer 2008 version. This year’s batch of Festina Peche seems to be much more tart than the 2007 version, which is a welcomed trend in my book. The palate also seems lighter, drier, and more refreshing. I love this beer, and will look forward to it every year.

Original rating, July 2007. Pour is a cloudy pale yellow with a small white head that recedes to a thin film. Virtually no lacing noted. Aroma shows acidic lemon, grapefruit, and peach notes atop a lightly sweet, wheat malt base. Flavors are ascorbic, borderline sour, up front, with that sweet wheat coming through to balance out the pH. Light and refreshing, but getting just a touch syrupy on the finish, but still very drinkable. Very good.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2011 Not having ever had a Berliner weisse to my recollection, I have no base standard of measurement. But I must say that this one is growing on me. A thick lively yeasty body thatís crisp and refreshing on its own, the nicely sour addition of the peach concentrate makes this very quirky and thirst-quenching. Iíd like a bit more of a spice profile, I think, something a bit dry just to take the mouth-puckering edge off. Still, Iím pleasantly surprised.

Another creative effort by Dogfish Head. This one wasnít for me, however. Brew is lightly carbonated with a lemony-yellow hue. I didnít taste the peach element too much, more like a light citrusy hefe-weizen. Sour on the middle of my tongue and a short aftertaste. Just not enough going on here.

Kevster (344) - Bradenton, Florida, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Bottle-12oz. Pours a cloudy yellow with virtually no head that diminishes before I could sit the bottle down from the pour. Sweet aroma is citrusy and peachy. Flavor tastes like what a liquid peach sweet tart would taste like with a thin mouthfeel. Although this beer is refreshing I would consider this more of a wine cooler than a beer. A good item to have your friends try that donít like beer.

HogTownHarry (6064) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 8, 2007
Bottle (12oz). Via trade with MrBendo. Hazy, pale yellow, good-sized tightly fizzy white lasting head. Fresh sweetened peach aroma, lightly of sweet plonk, some grass/mint hops in there too. The taste is lovely - tart blush wine with acidic fresh peach, again some light sharp sweetly herbal hops in the finish. Light-bodied (appropriately so), very lively and acidic, the malt drops off fast, leaving a pleasant fruit/acid tingle on the tongue. Tasty as all get-out, and quenching too.

Suttree (5129) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Pale yellow, big dense white head. Citrusy, peachy aroma. Very clean, vary tart, very peachy, but the peach flavors do not overwhelm. In fact, The peach flavors are almost seemlessly blended with the tartness. Very refreshing, very tasty.

Pours bright gold into a Tumbler. Micro white head quickly subsides. Mild peach and necatine aromas. Sharp, dry, sour and refreshing. Slight peach flavors but neither sweet nor over-powering. Lasting dry wheat finish.

rayg1 (550) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Had this because it was hot as hell today and needed something refreshing. Pours a cloudy yellow with a thin bubbly white head. Aroma is a sweet peachy smell but yet also a bit sour. Taste is first a wave of sweet peach, then the tartness that is true to the style of berliner weisse. The best part about this beer is actually the aftertaste once the tartness has subsided, a full flavor of wheat lingers and actually a very rich finish. Enjoyable.

Bottle from Belmont Party. Poured yellow color color with a large frothy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate wheat sour fruit aroma. Light to medium body. Medium sour fruit flavor with a medium sour finish of moderate duration. Interesting, not my style.
