3.93/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Although corked, the beer is undercarbonated, pouring out clear and golden colored; the head that appears is from a hard pour and much of it silently fades away in the first minute, although a hazy shower curtain of lacing does appear with each sip

Smell: Funky peach aromatics

Taste: The overpowering sweetness leaves the funk in the dust, as the peach flavors blossom in the mid-palate; the funk struggles to come through, after the swallow but fades into the sweet peach finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with low carbonation

Overall: If only the sweetness were cut way back, this would be an excellent beer - the funk smells very interesting but it is hard to find on the palate

I don't understand why the score for this beer is so low. It's one of the "peachier" peach beers I've had and it has wonderful carbonation and feel for a Lambic. A pleasantly sweet, slightly tart, not-too-peachy treat that I thoroughly enjoyed.

Pours a clear amber-yellow with a finger of white head. Head retention is good, with no lacing left behind. Aroma is fleshy peach with a touch of apricot. It smells candied and sweet. Flavor profile is even sweeter, delivering a huge dose of ripe, fleshy peach. Sweetness cannot be understated. It's sweeter than even the ripest and juiciest of peaches. Mouth feel is medium in thickness, with a still, smooth texture. Overall, a sublime lambic featuring peaches - as the bottle suggests. It never grows complicated or over done, just peaches on peaches on peaches.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 750mL bottle.

My first Lambic beer, and quite a delicious one at that. I just logged a beer I thought was bad purely because it tasted as if someone just squirted juice into it. This is very different. It is one whole cohesive array of balanced delicious flavors. Wonderful peach and apple on the tongue. A beautiful gold body and white head in the glass. I will definitely need to be trying more Lambics.

Holy Peachy Deliciousness!!!

Its like drinking carbonated heavy peach syrup straight from a can of peaches that is 2.5% ABV

The only downside to this brew is something that all other lambics share. That is that it is 140 calories per bottle.
Which is about the same as a soda.

However, unlike a peach soda.. The peach flavor in this is not fake or artificial tasting in any way.
And let me tell you, good lord, is it good!

The appearance was a clear golden colored body with a one fingered white foamy head and leaves some clingy lacing. The smell was a sticky sweet peach, light apples try to enter as it warms. The taste was sweet sticky peaches and apples. The aftertaste had sweet sticky peaches and apples with an acceptable watery peachy finish. The palate was light, extremely sessionable (perhaps one of the most sessionable beers I may have had). I see the ABV is nice and low which assists for that. Carbonation is fairly subdued and almost lets this one drink like peach flavored water. Overall, fruit lambic, it sure is and pretty damn good.

12oz corked and capped bottle, no date. Number on top of foil on top of bottle: BF09PPE 9650. Served in a Lindemans flute glass.

Appearance: Clear gold with some tint of amber to it. Lots of carbonation coming up through the beer. 1/4" rocky white head. Some large strands of lacing noted.

Smell: Dominated by fresh cut peaches, with just a hint of something musty under everything.

Taste: Peaches with a bit of tartness for balance. Some apple flavor as well. Mild tart/sour finish. Overall this beer is somewhat juice-like in flavor.

Mouthfeel: Good carbonation, thick and sticky, juice-like.

Overall / Drinkability: Refreshing and tasty, a bit sweet for a lambic, but it works. Easily drinkable, but one of these per evening is enough for me.
