In France, a demi-pêche
typically combines French beer with a shot of peach syrup. Here, peach purée made from fresh (or frozen) peaches and fragrant honey lends a wonderful fruity perfume to hearty wheat beer (beer made with a higher percentage of malt). When peaches aren’t in season, there are countless flavor variations for this drink, including Pomegranate Molasses
, Honeyed Blackberry Syrup
or Cherry Syrup
Spoon syrup into a tall beer glass. Tilt the glass at a 45° angle (to reduce excess head) and pour in beer. Using a long spoon, stir until blended. Much of the syrup will settle on the bottom of the glass while you drink; consider it dessert or stir a few times between sips.
