Very cloudy yellow with a rapidly disappearing head. Aroma of wheat with traces of light peach. Light mouthfeel with a clean yet sour flavor. Very lively beer. I admit I went into this tasting believing I wouldnít like this beer and it far exceeded my expectations. tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - AUG 7, 2007
12 oz bottle. Pours cloudy gold with white head. The aroma is earth, fruit, socks, and bready yeast. The flavor is tart at first, with some zest and subtle peach. The middle gets very prickly and refreshing, which leads to an acidic finish with a big yeasty presence. Pretty refreshing; I think Iíve decided that I like it.

12 oz bottle. This beer is but a shell of what the retired Festina Lente was. I had high hopes for this beer, but found it to be a big dissapointment. This beer pours to a hazy, pale yellow color, with a slight white head that fades, and a moderate carbonation. The nose really doesnít have a whole lot going on, with light hints of peach aroma, and some grainy wheat. The palate is a touch tart, with some wheat malt flavor, and a touch of peach flavor. This beer finishes with some tart wheat malt, a touch of sourness, and then end dry. Not a bad beer, but hardly anything to write home about. This beer is nothing like a Berliner Weisse, and while it has some sourness, and ends dry, this beer isnít close to that classic beer style. A nice summer refresher, and it would go well with lighter fare, but again, this beer was a let down for me. 00cobraR (1103) - Greensboro, North Carolina, USA - AUG 7, 2007
Hmmmm, this beer wasnt terrible, but not really that great. Aroma is wheaty with a very slight peachy sweetness to it. Flavor was refreshing,but not nearly as peachy as i expected. Ov erall the tart was not that sharp. omhper (24963) - TyresŲ, SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2007
Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Cloudy yellow, brief head. The nose is a strange thing. When people around me drinking the same beer were aroused by the aroma, all I sensed was sweaty feet. Itís definitely very dry and tart. The peach is not overpowering at all, but just sits as a compliment to the citric acidity. Itís certainly not your dull everyday brewpub fruit ale, it is more refined than that. It works a sa thirst quencher on a hot day, but I cannot say I really like it.

This beer is a hazed pale yellow color with a thin white head that dissapears almost immediately, leaving a rather sad, lemonade-ish drink. Minimal lacing. The aroma is mostly peachy with touches of citrus and musty malt. Lightm fruity body with tart peach and wheat flavors. Very little sweetness which would help a lot here. The finish is fruity and short, leaving a sour fruit aftertaste for a moment. Nothing worth revisiting here. Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 6, 2007
Courtesy of beastiefan2k. Pours a hazy gold/amber with a dissipating white head. Smells of peaches, lemons, some wheat, hints of tartness. Tastes mildly sour with a peachy aftertaste. Somewhat on the thin side as far as mouthfeel goes. Touches of the lip smacking vinegary sourness is present on the finish which leans towards the dry end of the spectrum. Pretty good as a summer seasonal. porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - AUG 6, 2007
(Bottle from <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/maine/boothbay/ target=blank>1828 Vintage House) Sort of impressive...Pours cloudy yellow, maybe some light orange tint. Two fingers of white head that recedes rather quickly. Aroma is sort of sour and damp basement, maybe only a vague hint of peach or citrus. Mouthfeel light, soft, refreshing. No real lacing. Tastes tangy, lightly sour and tart. Wheaty. Lightly peachy/fruity. This seems pretty damn authentic and certainly an easier drinker than the only other Berliner Weisse Iíve had (Berliner Kindl) which was kind of nasty. I enjoyed this and kudos to DFH for not producing just another fruit beer TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 5, 2007
Pours cloudy light golden with a fully receding white head. Aroma is musky ale yeast, pears and peaches. Taste is soda, champagne like in texture. Notes of tart apples, white grape, and peaches. Mouthfeel is lightl bodied with lively spritzy carbonation. Quite interesting! Enniskillen (2051) - Bakersfield, California, USA - AUG 5, 2007
Very light color/ foggy straw with a thin white head. Aroma is pale malts, light peach, light citrus. Taste is a nice citrus tartness, with light peach, pale malts. Body is refreshing.
