tough to comment on this one because i have never had this style before. the nose is almost non-existant. the flavor is very sour and has strong peach notes. i hate to say it but it almost tastes like bud light with a peach flavor Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - AUG 18, 2007
12 oz bottle. Murky yellow gold with a white head. Sour peachy nose, somewhat acidic and citrus. Light citrus sour and peach flavors. Nice for the summer. FlacoAlto (4220) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 18, 2007

Pours with a hazy, yellowish, gold colored body and is topped by a frothy, meringue white head. The aroma is lightly tart, with a solid, wheat like, grainy aroma. The acidity leans towards / accentuates a nice fruitiness; notes of peaches, apricots and orange blossoms are noticeable as part of the fruit component.
Lightly tart, quite light bodied, actually the combination is really quite refreshing. The beer is very dry, yet the peach / fruit flavors are still noticeable. Almost more aromatic than fruit flavored. Lactic acid tasting, which at times is quite dry and bracing. At other times though, the nectar-like fruitiness adds a softness and a perceived sweetness which softens the total effect of this beer. Flavors of citrus-honey, orange blossoms, peaches & apricots all form layers of the tart fruit flavors found in this beer.
This is a really nice brew for the Summer season; light, refreshing, fruity, simplistic at times, it really captures the essence of a hot weather refresher. I could easily have drunk a couple pints of this on this 100°F + day.
Draught @ DFH Rehoboth: This one pours a hazy, straw yellow color. Mine had pretty much no head on it at all. It has an interesting aroma. Sour peaches, some spice, grassiness and maybe a touch of a champagne aroma. You had better like tart offerings if you are going to drink this one. The taste is mainly tart peaches, but not overly puckering. Some spiciness along with it. A very interesting and good beer. It went well with my crabcake sandwich that I had for lunch. taffurs888 (124) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2007
Poured from a bottle. Tastes like champagne. Sour taste which isnt as strong as I expected, very high carbonation.

Is it just me??? Bottle from DC area and AZ. Poured cold with no head. Nose of lemons and aromatics but where is the peach-who cares?? Acid and tart on the taste but supremely refreshing. Bitter, bitter, bitter...yummmmm. Wonderful beer. Bring it to Texas and I might forget Celis White... auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - AUG 17, 2007
12 Oz Bottle. Poured into a Berliner Weisse Bowl. Aroma is a prickly tang of Indian coconut yogurt and fresh ceviche. A little subdued but with light twists of lime and cranberry. Pours a percolating broad bubbled clouded lemon yellow. Rocky head of sparse white. Flavor comes across as a fresh, popping lactic tang on wheat, with a delightful switch in the apricot nectar quality of the fruit. That rides out the backend for a nice ride. It could use much more acidity, body and umph. But the refreshing dry sparkling quality makes it dangerously quaffable. Somehow, edges of corner DMS and corn reek in a nip, drawing it down a touch. Finishes out on nectarine stones. BeerBlitz (72) - Roslyn, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2007
12 oz bottle poured into standard pint glass. It’s Dogfish Head, so of course you can’t expect it to taste as expected. My favorite part was the dry finish and mouthfeel. The pour resulted in an average amount of off-white head that quicly diminished to nothing. Color is light apricot with small and medium sized particulate matter leading to a cloudy look. Kind of a "juice" look. Flavor is really front-loaded and acetic. I really didn’t taste peach, actually more like nectarines. Finish flavor is kind of acetic and lemony. I liked this beer quite a bit. blklab2007 (2120) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 16, 2007
bottle poured a cloudy wheat in color with minimal carbination and little foam. smell is dry champagne yeast, wheat, alcohol, and some light fruit. taste is bitter on the tongue, dry, has some light fruit sweetness, and is along the lines of a sparkling pinot grigio. this is an interesting one to try, quite different from the dogfish beer that they typically brew.

pours like cloudy lemonade with a bright white foamy head....semi sour smell, spices and fruit....strong fruit/peach taste...very crisp/clean finish....much better than a wine cooler but along those lines....this one might convince my wife that beer is good.....gonna have to keep some on hand for the mixed company
