Brewer: Dogfish Head Craft: Festina Peche ABV: 4.5%
What can I say – I have an affinity for anything Dogfish Head. They were the first brewery I ever visited, which happened to be on an anniversary trip with my wife. (Don’t I have an awesome wife?) So it will come as no surprise that I really enjoy this craft.
Festina Peche is a perfect craft for those warm spring days. The style of this craft is neo-Berliner Weisse, which translates to a tart, crisp, bordering on sour beer. The peach is present throughout as a warm sweetness. And there you have it. Nothing too fancy here, and it doesn’t need to be.
I had just finished mowing the lawn and I was thirsty. I wanted a beer that was refreshing, easy to drink, sessionable, and flavorful. Festina Peche was a peachy keen choice. I must say too, that, this craft would travel into summer perfectly well. Those hot, humid, summer nights call for a craft such as this. So if you’re willing to wait, grab some while it’s here and hold onto it until summer…
Rating: I’d pay for a case of this no problem.
