Pours clear golden peach color with a minimal dirty white head which quickly dissipated with no retention.

Smells of peaches, fresh and fermented. A bit of apple and yeast come through as well.

Tate is of fresh peach, crisp and clean. The flavor progresses towards a great tartness on the end.

Texture is fine, light bubbles tickle as I drink it, and it has a dry finish that makes for easy drinking.

Another great lambic. Enjoyable, light, easy to recommend to those who are interested.

Review from notes.

A: Pours a clear golden color with a small white head that does not last long. No lacing at all.

S: Reminds me of peach ring candy. Lots of peach and candied sugar, extremely sweet.

T: Tart peaches, lots of candied sugar. Slight funk to it, but the sugary peaches dominate.

M: Light to medium bodied, on the sweet side, and more like a soda than a beer.

O: Really, not that bad. It tastes good, and in the end, that is what matters most, but not something I would seek out often.

355ml bottle poured into a 16oz tulip.

A - Pours with a thin, fizzy white head that doesn't last long; fizzles out in seconds. The color is a golden-amber with slight haze. No lacing, but that's sort of to be expected with this style. For a headless lambic, as I would expect one to be, this beer looks pretty fine to me.

S - Juicy peaches abound, with light notes of wet hay and sweet barley malt floating in the background. Fairly syrupy, and sort of smells artificial, however the bottle states that actual peaches are used. It's got a slight funk to it, but not like the usual brettanomyces/barnyard funk, but something more sterile and... odd. Sort of cleaning product/hospital-esque.

T - Starts out slightly sharp and acidic, with a touch of tartness, and that's about as far as this one gets in terms of traditional sour flavors. The flavor then explodes into a rush of juicy peaches and mountains of candi sugar. Tons of sweet malt notes and intense fruity, peachy flavors. Finishes with a touch of wet hay, but not really "barnyard" like at all. The aftertaste is a delicious bready, yeasty feel that helps balance the big sweetness this beer boasts upfront. Light tart character lingers, but doesn't do anything to get in the way of the sweeter side of this lambic. No hop presence detectable.

M - Light-to-medium body, but a little syrupy/cloying. Carbonation is on the high side of the scale. The first sip is a burst of bubbly goodness. It's not exactly a fine, smooth carbonation, but it's not really fizzy or overdone feeling; sort of in between.

D - It's not balanced, and it's not complex, but it's damn good. It also may be worth mentioning that this has been my introduction to Brouwerij Lindemans, a brewery I expect to drinking a lot of now! While it may not satisfy the connoisseur in search of a intense sour, this lambic has been thoroughly satisfying for me. Despite the overbearing sweetness in the flavor profile, it remains quite drinkable; but then again, how could a 4.0% ABV sunshine-fruity sugar bomb not? If there has ever been an ideal brunch beer, this is it.

Pours a pale apricot with a 1-finger thin looking white head, reduces quickly to nothing.

The nose rather delightful- a wheat crispness lifting up the syrupy peach tones that hold complexities akin to a fruit cocktail of the other major tree fruits- apricots, pears and apples.

Palate is light, with a bright carbonation and a slight bump in body from the incredibly syrupy peachy sweetness. As sweet as it is, though, there's a ridiculously huge tart juiciness providing a perfect balance. Bitterness isn't noticeable, nor are there any funky tones, while the brew picks up a little malt on the tart finish with a malty-wheat dryness in the middle of the tongue.

Honestly, I don't think anyone could make a peach wine this delicious and balanced. Big sweetness and a big tartness. Someone pass the French toast.

I have had this beer several times at Tap Works in OKC and also poured from bottle at home. Both are pleasing but it is much better on tap.
For this review I am reviewing poured from a bottle into a Pint glass.

A- Pale Orange, slightly cloudy. With a perfect poor it gives a 1 finger off white head that quickly dissipates with slight lacing.

S- Peaches are the most prominent scent. Wet hay in the background, maybe some stale cardboard. A slight funk that smells really good with everything else.

T- Sweet peaches, Grass, Bitter almost lemony taste, and that funk that really makes me want to take another drink.

M- Over carbonated. Almost burns my mouth from the fizz. This is the only thing I wish was different.

O- Overall, I rate this beer at a 4.o. If the carbonation was a little lighter This would easily get a 4.5. I can't rate at a 5 because even though this is a great beer, it's not something that I can drink everyday. It's a once or twice a year drink.
