750 ml caged and corked bottle, bottled on 10/12/10, Batch 42-90. This bottle was a slow gusher when I opened it. Served in a flute, the beer pours a cloudy golden/orange color with some floaties, and about an inch carbonated white head that fizzled away quickly. There isn't much lacing. Aroma is nice, it smells like tart and sweet peaches, lemon peel, and musty, earthy funk. I think the taste is similar to the aroma. The sour/tart flavors are stronger than the sweet peach ones, but the tartness isn't overpowering at all. As the beer warms up, the peach flavors really come out more. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's refreshing and well carbonated. I think it's a good brew, I liked it. $19.79 a bottle at Liquor Barn.

review from notes of 11/11/2011.

poured into snifter.

Appearance: This beer takes on the color of a light peach skin. Head is white and fades quickly.

Smell: Funk seems a bit mild in the nose. You do get a decent amount of peach smell.

Taste: mild peach flavor and this beer does have a little bit less than the normal amount of funky notes from most Upland Lambics. The sour does not seem to be quite as intense either. It still tastes pretty good.

Mouthfeel: light bodied beer with high carbonation levels. Clean and refreshing; even eppervesant quality.

Overall: Its a nice beer and its enjoyable, but I am not a huge fan of peaches, but I would drink it again.

Hazy apricot yellow-orange with a thin fuzzy blanket.

I get tons of peach, both fresh fruit and gummy bears, with pepper, oak, and a little wet dog-like funk.

Taste is quite sour with cracker, biscuit, sweaty peach, weird foot funk and stinky cheese.

Latest batch release, thanks to Mike I believe...Pours a light hazy peach, good looking. Lots of head at first, falls very quickly though...The aroma is fantastic, sweet peaches mixed with the perfect amount of tartness...The taste is more of the same, sweet yet tart peaches, could use a tad more tartness though. Some sugar notes with a little oak. So good, and easily crushable...The feel is really nice, as its got a nice puckering sensation.

Another stellar Upland. Clearly shows the newest batch is on POINT. You gotta get you some!

750ml bottle thanks to tjthresh. When I removed the cap the cork was bubbling, I wonder what it would look like in a couple years, I'm guessing black and moldy like a Cantillon. The first whiff I took from the bottle got me excited for the funk. It smells like a nice fruity lambic, a little funk but not distinct peachiness. The color is hazy golden orange and it is completely flat which is a let down. There is hardly any sourness until the end and the flavor is kind of weak in my opinion resembling watered-down juice. Sadly this is probably my least favorite of the Upland lambics I've had.

Bottled in 12/13, consumed in 3/15. The age has mellowed it nicely.

Pours gold with light pink hues. Smells tart and acidic, like all other Upland Lambics, but not nearly as aggressive and undrinkable as their raspberry.

Tastes very intense and very good. Generic lactic acid starts things out, but it gets supplemented quickly by big nodes of sweet, mellow peaches. There's a tiny bit of funk on the back end, but overall it's just tart acid balanced by sweet peaches. Very nice.

2010 bottle, this courtesy of backfat (thanks Dave!). Opened on a quiet Friday night.

This is a gusher, thankfully a slow one. As with all lambic and gueuze I opened the bottle outside, as I'm smarter than the beer. No mess in the house for me.

It pours a very murky orange, with what initially is a nice several fingers of foam, but is gone in seconds, leaving not even a ring. What's left looks like a Tequila Sunrise.

Nice aroma, good lactic component and a nice funk, with peaches taking a strong lead too. strong peach presence behind quite a bit of a lactic character and some mild funk. Really this smelled better than I expected, very nice.

Same with the taste, nicely sour with good peach flavors. Light carbonation, still a little buzzy on the tongue. Nice.

A-Cloudy orange, well carbonated, one finger head that didn't last long.

S-Peach, good deal of sour horse blanket, slight oak mild grass.

T-Starts with nice peach and a good deal of citrus notes. Rather sour with nice oak balance.

M-Lighter, well carbonated, crisp dry finish.

O-One of the better Upland lambics, peaches are a great fruit and they really come through in this beer Had it again, the peach flavor was perfect one of the better lambics Upland made. The extra 3 months of age gave off a perfect peach flavor.

Tried this courtesy of ATLbeerDog - thanks!

Pours a peach color that's got some amber hues in the bottom and lightens up toward the top of the glass - absolutely no head or lacing.

Smells of unripened fruits - both sweet and tart, with a good deal of barnyard funk.

Tastes different than it smells. The barnyard funk is hardly present, instead the fruit flavors take over. Mostly peaches, but with hints of pears, they start out sweet, then move slightly to the tart side, then back to the sweet side to linger in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is interesting - it's very close to being flat, but I noticed a few bubbles popping out here and there.

Drinkability is good. The flavors are interesting, but I could definitely see this getting more complex with some age on it.

Overall this was a good beer, but I think it has the potential to be a lot better after the sweetness mellows out and the funk has some time to grow.

Batch 42-09, bottled 10/12/10, reviewed Feb 2012.

A: This poured a hazy light gold with fizzy white head.
S: It smelled like tart and funky oak, with sour white grape and dry champagne, and a little sweet peach and vinegar and citrus zest.
T: It tasted like very tart and sour puckering white grape and dry champagne and funky oak, with some sweet peach and vinegar and citrus zest. It had a crisp and clean and lasting sour aftertaste.
M: It was watery with lots of carbonation. Nice bubbly body.
D: This was a great lambic, but the peach character was quite subdued. The scent and taste were bold yet delicate, and the body was fitting. Not sure how this was 1.5 years ago (fresh), but I wish there was more peach at this point. Otherwise, this was a fantastic brew to sip and savor. Could age a long time, as long as you won't miss the hint of peach. Recommended.

Bottled 10/12/10. Sampled alongside the other seven fruit lambics.

A: Gusher of a bottle, like most of the other flavors. Pours a hazy golden peach color with a huge white head.
S: Light peach, apricot, and citrus. Perfumey scents.
T: Much more peach than the nose let on. Not as much citrus as the other flavors but it’s there. Very good fresh peach taste with a lemon finish and juicy peach juice aftertaste.
M: Medium-full body, chewy mouthfeel, fuzzy carbonation, greasy mouth and acidic.
O: Peach is a tough flavor but this beer was delicious. Not my favorite of the lineup but great.
