I avoided this for a long time because I didn’t think it sounded very appealing, even if it sounded interesting. So i finally picked up a bottle and was very impressed. Cloudy straw color, mild peach aroma. Flavor is slightly tart with a nicely present, but not overpowering peach flavor. It was perfect after a nice long walk with the dog on a warm fall day. blankboy (7689) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2007
Bottle. Pours a cloudy pale yellow, very bubbly, with a small diminishing white head. Mild aroma is sugary sweet along with grain, yeast, peach and a hint of tartness. Slightly watery, lighty tart flavour of yeast, peach, mild hops and a hint of spices -- meh. Average bodied. Decent but I found it somewhat dull -- there’s much better versions of the style.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2008 Poured from a bottle. Poured a gold color with a moderate white head. Aroma of peach and some light citrus (lemon and orange), some pilsner malt, and a hint of yeast. Crisp, tart entry with a light lemon flavor that is followed by a soft peachy sweetness and a nice wheatiness that imparts a moderately dry finish. It is different and easy drinking, which is a nice change. I applaud DFH for at least paying hommage to lesser developed foreign style, I wish more brewers would do it.

In the bottle from Inari Wines. Pours a cloudy light gold with a thick fluffy white head of awesome retention. This looks way better than many Wits. Has a mild peach aroma, but mostly a yeasty doughy scent with a splash of lemon citrus. WOW, this is very tart! Has a long acidity on the tongue. A very seltzer-like palate. So acidic, it seems to be concentrated lemons. I can see why they use the term "neo-Berliner weisse." There’s not much peach flavor to this. It tastes similar to an apricot home brew that I once made with a huge amount of fruit and very little malt. I get a faint sensation of oakiness toward the bitter end. wetherel (1883) - Cupertino, California, USA - SEP 19, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2008 I was talking with WeeHeavy saying how I’d like to try this beer, so he gave it to me! Thanks, Jon! Pours cloudy yellow with a 3-4" head. I must wait for the head to die before filling the glass. The smell is a horribly strong plastic phenols. Totally yuck. I don’t want to taste it with that smell. No peach in the smell that’s for sure. I’m getting a headache after a few whiffs. Taste is sour, leans toward the dry side. Flavor and smell are hard to separate, so the smell brings the taste rating down. Overall: yuck. 1,4,4,2,6:1.7
Rerate. On tap at the Brick Store. Much, much, much better than the first time I tried it. Some peachy notes. A hint of sour. Light refreshing. Very good.7,3,7,3,16:3.6

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2014 Bottle sent by DrBayern - I had been wanting to try this for a long time and finally acquired one through trade. Poured this into the closest glass I had to a "bowl" style glass. Looked a hazy yellowish with no head. Kind of Hoegaarden-esque. Smell was very underwhelming with some very faint perhaps peachy smells that I wouldn?t have picked up if I didn?t know what it was, along with an almost skunky yeast smell. Very unique to me as it was also my 1st of the style. Taste was dry very bland peachy flavor up front, followed by a noticeable tartness in the mouth and then a definite wheaty finish to it. Very different, and although drinkable, not the easiest beer to enjoy. Perhaps just the style, but this lacked almost any sweetness at all and as a result almost none of the flavors were brought out very well. Extremely mild and tart. Rerate - Much more flavorful, and the fruitiness shined, and the tartness was very thirst quenching. Really enjoying this style now, and I liked the dry fruity complementing flavor to this style. Would like to have again. Beaver (1801) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 18, 2007
12 oz bottle, bottled on 6/7/07. Pours a murky yellow with a thin fizzy head that quickly disappears completely.PeterA (342) - EL SALVADOR - SEP 17, 2007
The aroma is peaches and maybe some acidic apples and bready malt.
The flavor is tart and acidic peaches, lemon, and wheat with some slightly sour notes. The mouthfeel is medium to full with low carbonation.
Overall, a pretty one-dimensional beer (peaches), but enjoyable. It’s almost like a carbonated fruit juice.
They weren’t joking about peaches in this. You get it from the first hint of the aroma to the last drop in the glass. The color is a nice golden orange, with heavy amounts of carbonation. There is a moderately large white head. The flavor is clearly peaches, the beer finishes very crisply. This is quite easy to drink.

Bottle from the Dunmore Deli, Dunmore, PA. Overall a really nice brew with no where near the sourness Lente had but enough to suffice with a mix of wheat, citrus, grapes, lemons, peaches and quite a bit of carbonation. Wine fans will probably dig this one, especially fans of whites. I like the acidity level but the palate could be a bit more refined. robozni (7) - USA - SEP 16, 2007 does not count
Pours a cloudy gold with a white head. Smell is citrus with some peach.
Flavor is tart peach with some citrus flavor. Palate is light bodied with medium to high carbonation. Pretty interesting beer overall.
