’Pêche’ based on witbier and one of many examples of a trend fortunately going downwards since a few years. Cream white, sticky head, pinkish pale blonde colour, misty as an ordinary witbier. Strong sweet peach aroma, pineapple in syrup, lemonade, grain. Taste cloyingly sweet, very strongly dominated by peach juice and peach extracts, light wheatiness piercing through, thin mouthfeel with a watery finish. I sincerely hate these sweet fruit beers based on witbier and the fact that they are declining now, seems to demonstrate that the audience for them isn’t as big as brewers seemed to think five years ago. That said, I’ve had even worse than this. mikske79 (1666) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - AUG 6, 2014
Ik drink sowieso graag zo’n bier en dit is ook een aanrader. Zoet, maar niet te zoet. Lekker voor in de zomer GoufCustom (1979) - HONG KONG - JAN 6, 2013

Cloudy pale gold colour; Good head and frothy; Strong lacing which did not stick to the glass and good carbonation; Mid to light body; Strong aroma of peach, apricot, yeast and quite malty; Strong but subdued taste of peach fruit and juice, very light vinery and a slight dry taste. No hop bitterness, very easy to mouth.
Comments: compare to Lindemans Peach, this is sweeter and less white wine after taste. Whereas Lindemans’ a fruit lambic, this is a fruit beer so I think it has done a lot to please, with room for improvement of course. As a summer refreshment? I don’t see why not.
Bottle at home. Misty golden body with a creamy white invh thick head. Pungent peach nose initially which gives way to more wooden yeast notes. Sweet and fruity with a malty tail. A bit sharp to drink, light astringent tongue and hinting at metallic notes. Medium body but a rather short mouth. Cunningham (7861) - Halden, NORWAY - JUL 28, 2012
Hazy golden colour with a white head. Both flavour and aroma are trule peach. So if you do not like peach....do not buy it. Otherwise feel free. It is a fine and fresh "beer" in the sun.

[Bottle from Varnaveien Mineralvann in Moss, Norway]
330 ml bottle. Golden and hazy. Tall white coarse head that clings to the glass. Acidic lemony aroma. Dusty. Fruity flavours with the peaches coming through in the aftertaste. Sweet peaches. Malts are definitely there, with a light and sweet presence. Medium-bodied, but very drinkable. A little sweet, but that’s fine. Beer5000 (6448) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 26, 2012
330 ml bottle. Hazy orange body with a creamy white head. Aroma of peaches – and nothing else. Flavor is mostly sweet peaches, or more specific – like a rather neutral wit or blond with a big dose of peach-syrup. Served ice cold, as recommended on bottle this might feel a bit refreshing, at least it is pretty heavy carbonated and there is no real off flavors (if you don’t consider peach syrup to be an off flavor!). Frankly I don’t see the point at all with this, if I wanted a soda pop I would by myself a soda pop – not a novelty beer. Probably made for tourists that don’t really like beer but want to bring home a crazy souvenir from Brussels. gunnfryd (14825) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 30, 2011

En noe udefinert smak, fruktsyre og sødme. Kan sikkert funke som tørsteslukker om den serveres på is.
