Beer Wednesday – Festina Pesche
Happy Beer Wednesday, and happy Thanksgiving!
Since I’m in complete denial about it being the end of November and the miserable weather in the northeast, I’d like to present a beer that I think tastes a ton like summer, Dogfish Head’s Festina Pesche.
Now, while I’ve said a million times that I don’t like fruit in my beer (and I’m constantly amending that for one more beer) Festina Pesche is a peach ale that looks, smells, and tastes a lot like summer.
This vegan beer is light and fresh, with a really bright effervescence. The mouth feel reminds me of champagne, and even though it is a peach ale, there really isn’t much fruit flavor, just a little in the nose, but even that is more cleansing than fruity.
The head disappears quickly, as one might expect, but it really is a tasty vegan beer. I’m quite happy to give toys beer a 4/6 on my six-pack scale.
Are you in denial about winter coming? How are you dealing with having a white Thanksgiving?
