This afternoon I'm drinking Festina Pêche, a malt beverage brewed with peach concentrate by Dogfish Head Craft Brewery in Milton, Delaware. I initially reviewed this beer last July, to a less than positive conclusion. However, since winning the Marq Spusta Festina Peche print and hearing a bunch of friends say how much they like the beer, I decided to have another go at it. I suggested to my wife that she could frame it for me for Father's Day, and she told me fine, but that it would be for my office. Can you believe that shit? She doesn't like it? I believe her exact words were "What the hell is that?" The label design has simple peach trees and says "Festina Pêche is a neo-Berliner style Weisse fermented with peach juice. This unique, tart and refreshing brew is so down with the dog days of summer."
Peach soda aroma with carbonation bubbles that keep exploding in my nose, just like a soda would. Peach and lemon flavors kick things off, very tart, acidic and sour! There is a definite sour candy aspect to this beer. Good carbonation, crisp and refreshing. Peachy sweetness does take a little of the sour edge off of the beer, yet it does retain most of its tartness. Definitely a fruit beer, but a good example. A little watered down and thin, but I liked it. So I guess I've evolved into a semi-fan!
