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.

Bottle: Pours a very cloudy yellow with barely a white head that dissipates to a thin gel like cover. Aroma is tart and very fruity and notes of citrus, definitely can smell the peach. Flavor is slightly sweet and mild sourness with just hints of the peach flavor, and touches of the citrus. The body is light and slightly creamy with a slightly bready finish. Very thirst quenching. macguy (146) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 1, 2007
Trust Dogfish to do a sour ale and do it well. Hats off to what is for me, a winner. The nose is a very light peach. The beer pours cloudy with a very thin and very short lasting head. The taste is a lovely sour, a bit thin but with a strong peach finish. I’ll be talking my local packy into carrying this. OldGrowth (3665) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - AUG 1, 2007
bottle, from Cary Wholefoods. Ok aroma. Mainly corn & wheat. Little funk about it. Kind of stinky. Cloudy yellowy gold color, small to no head, little ring actually. Tart flavor, better than aroma, some of the peach is detectable. Wheat too. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel, tart dry finish. Eh, not much here to excite meFlavor was good and I did like how there was a significant difference between the aroma & flavor. So what’s a Neo berliner weisse?

Festina Peche is a white pear colored ale with a fizzy white head. The aroma is of peach candy. It is thin and tannic in the mouth. The flavor is tart and acidic. More citrus than peach. It tastes like diet lemon iced tea. Missed the boat on this one! tagz (337) - Alabama, USA - AUG 1, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2007 draft. hazy light yellow-orange, clouds of sediment swirling around. subtle peach aroma and taste with light wheat tones. intense tartness without overpowering the wheat/yeast character. dry finish and overall a very crisp taste - nothing lingers in the mouth. my first of the style. its a nice blend of flavors that are reminiscent of flemish sours and fruit wheats. re-rate: i have had this several times since and every time i wake up the next day with aching head and eyes despite only having one. my body may be reacting negatively to unfermented suspended sugars. i’m bumping this down on overall impression, but this is definitely an interesting and unique drink. on a side note i much prefered the draft than subsequent bottles. the yeast and wheat were much more balanced with the tart.

Draft @ Hop Devil. Cloudy gold/orange with no head to speak of. Nice mix of tart and sweet makes it easy drinking for the average gueuze drinker. For me they could have gone a bit bolder with the tartness. I like the flavor of the peaches thouh, as they add a nice freshness to this. Nicely done. goldtwins (4319) - Nesconset, New York, USA - JUL 30, 2007
Tap pour. Poured a murky yellow with a fair amount of sediment. The aroma had a light tartness but not as much as I was expecting. The peach was very light. The flavor was again much lighter on the tartness than I expected. The fruit was very light. I don’t know if I could have picked it out as peach if I didn’t know but I thought the flavor was nice and the beer was refreshing. mcbackus (758) - Merritt Island, Florida, USA - JUL 30, 2007
bottle: pours a very very light cloudy yellow colour with a thin white line of a head. aroma of fresh peaches, sweet sugars and some sourness. flavour is clean of wheat, sour, and peach.a very good beer, great for summer.
