Bottle. Slightly musty/dry wheat malt aroma - hint of peach. Cloudy pale yellow with no head. Dry vinous wheat malt flavor with mild peach flavor - a slight hint of sweetness in the finish. Not quite as sour as Schultheiss or Berliner Kindl but extremely well made and authentic - really no sweetness at all. pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 4, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2008 bottle....aroma: smells a lot like a white wine with some subtle hints of peaches. almost resembled a sweet cider.....appearance: light golden brown, closer to a yellowish tint. thins white head and semi-transparent....taste: bitter, cidery, and very dry disposition. very similar to a tamed down white wine with hints of peach. very drinkable and the tartness makes it very refreshing. perfect on a warm summer day or any day for that matter. i would def recommend this to a person that enjoys wine as well. robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 3, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2007 Cloudy Pale Honey Color with No Head. Cereal Grains, Wheat and Peaches Left Out in the Open Air.... Aroma. Light to Medium Body...Subtle Silky Mouthfeel. Initially Carbonated, Then Develops a Juice Quality. Well Balanced Tartness and ’Aged’ Peach Flavor. Sweet Tart Ending. Some Wheaty Aftertaste and the Tartness Drops Off a Bit...Strictly to Style, It’s Not Nearly as Tart as it Should Be, But if we Assume That Wasn’t Exactly What DFH Was Pushing Towards..it’s a Very Enjoyable Fruit-Laden Berliner. Very Interesting Concoction. ’Our’ man at Dogfish Head is one brilliant, creative geek. Hats are Tipped. jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - AUG 3, 2007
From a 12 oz. bottle, no freshness date, a mini-blurb along the right side of label, sampled in a pint glass.
An unfiltered straw blonde appearance, a large frothy white head that slowly dissipated into a thin layer of rocky suds, takes awhile for this to settle down.
Musty aromas at first, followed by cereal wheat maltiness and a light peach.
Crisp and prickly, but also has a smooth drinkability, light bodied, the peach taste is like biting into a green peach, tart with the fleshly juiciness, some lemony sourness too, cereal wheat malts, dryly tart and wheaty in the finish.
A good summer seasonal from DFH, goes great with the August heat and humidity.

Pours a cloudy, golden color with a white head. Aroma is of peach, hay, wheat, and spices. Wasn’t very impressed with the aroma. Flavor starts off tart with the peach flavor that lasts almost throughout. It pretty much covers up all the other flavors. By far my least favorite of the DFH brews. Not really very good.

A very interesting beer. Pours an opaque gold. The aroma is slightly sour with a hint of fruitiness. The peach flavor is very subtle, the primary taste is sweet, sour, refreshing, and a little fruity. This is followed by a crisp, tart mouthpuckering aftertaste. The mouthfeel is crisp and dry.

Doggy aroma. Ok label, sunny wit-like cloudy yellowgold with a big fluffy white head. Sour and tangy, lightly sweet. Medium-light body. Tangy aftertaste with distinct breadiness. True to style. Krazyjon (11) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - AUG 2, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2008 I am not a fan of fruity beers, and this in fact, is not fruity. It does have a very appealling dry tartness that is quite unique. That being said, the back end is a bit acidic and not at all enjoyable. I’m a huge fan of all things DFH but this is probably my least favorite, not my cup of tea. milewide (2302) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 2, 2007
Sour is major taste. Peach aroma and taste is modest. Very pale and cloudy appearance. Unique and enjoyable brew! sersdf (1020) - chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 1, 2007
looks like a hoegaarden: slightly browned yellow urine with definite opacity and white head. i wish i’d waited for a hot summer day to try the only bottle i have of this. oh well. the first scent to hit the nose is rank peaches, then a sort of spoiled milk sweet/sourness. after a little while, the nose loses that scent and it’s just a nice light peach aroma. flavor isn’t bad. it definitely tastes altogether a little underpowered and watery, but that might just be my low abv bias. it tastes something like a sour lemony candy. it’s really really watery. maybe that’s why they marketed it as a "dog day" summer beer. too bad i was too drunk to remember anything about the fff berliner weiss i had. probably about the same. i suddenly have a low opinion of people from berlin. even kolsches are better than these.
