Dickinsonbeer (5073) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 24, 2010
BCTC 2009. Pours a hazy light gold with a thinning white head- fades to nothing. Prickly carbonation. Aroma is peaches, although dulled down by almost a lacto infection, light crackery malts, DMS, sulfur is pretty big as well, pineapple tropicalness- and solvent. Flavor is more sulfur, cracker, peach extract and dull un-ripe peach, mineral, green, husky, thin wet oxidized paper and peach pit with more solvent- Ugh. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 16, 2009
(BCTC, draft) Murky pineapple juice body with minimal white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, peach, some pineapple. Taste is medium sweet, some peach, seltzer. Uncarbonated light body. rds (230) - USA - AUG 22, 2009
A cloudy,pale golden body, very minimal head, summery flavor, crisp, nice fruitiness. I was pleasantly surprised. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 9, 2009
BCTC 2009, Muky cloudy pale yellow. Tart peach aroma. Taste was way off. Peach flavor, lemony tartness, water nastiness. Yuck PilsnerPeter (3049) - Flushing, New York, USA - AUG 7, 2009
Tap at BCTC 2009: Cloudy yellow with nearly no head. Berliner Weisse like aroma- light lactic notes with some tart peach and grains. Vacant flavor- a bit musky, grainy and watered down. No body, and quite boring.

Tap at BCTC. Let me say up front that the guy serving this (and representing the brewery, whether he actually works for them or not I don’t know) was a total dick.j12601 (13304) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 4, 2009
Onto the beer, I was really excited when I saw the name of this and the ABV, thinking it may be a berliner weisse. The aroma suggests that it was, but the flavor was just a disaster. Quite wheaty in the aroma, though some odd potato/french fry aromatics are noted. The flavor though, just thin, wheaty water, almost nothing else going on. And the pour was hideous. The first beer of the day I dumped.
BCTC at Peekskill’s booth. Pours a milky pale yellow (looks a bit like white peach juice actually…) with a thin white head. Light mustard, faint wheat, and light fruit. Body is watery and thin. There’s a light almost peach flavor to it, but not really prominent, and might not be my first guess if I hadn’t known to be looking for it. Finishes a little rough and grainy. I wasn’t sure what to make of this one. Seems like it wants to be a Berliner Weisse, and at 3.5% it would be about right for it, but it doesn’t have the crisp acid, which would make it a lot nicer of a beer. The brewer may have actually been going for that, but I can’t be sure as the volunteers didn’t know, and the one employee of the brewpub there that I spoke with had no idea what a Berliner Weisse even was.
