look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

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.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass. Had many of these time for a review.

Small white head that falls quickly. Simple orange amber body, with a cloudy body. Some nice uprising carbonation occasionaly, pin head sized, some sticking to the glass. Not much of a collar at all, put top puck leaves a simple small lace in the middle. Looks nice.

Smell is a candied peach. Sticky, with Belgian style malt/yeast whatever that thing is I find so often on Belgian brews. Candied sweet, fun, simple... nice.

Extreme sweet peach taste, with a hint of tart on the finish. Mouthfeel of sweet kool aid quailty. Sticky, somewhat syrupy texture, which is not neccesarily a bad thing, but not a preference for myself.

Overall though easy drinking, fun simple, super easy light abv, candy like beer. Truly a peach in a glass dream lovers beer.

Smaller bottle, classy with foil, cork and a cap. Pours slightly hazy, orangy, amber. Tiny bubble film remains after a minute or two of the pour. long stringy, relaxed lacing on the glass. Nose is fruity, sweet and delicate. Lucious melons, peaches, fruits of a thousand nations flow in the glass. Not nearly as sour as some other Lambics I've tried, this one is sweet and tasty. Great with desert, berries, ice cream etc etc.

Poured from a bottle into a flute, the beer is a bright, orange-gold coloring with steady carbonation and a frothy, bubbly, bright white head. Aromas of rich, hearty peach, with an effervescent tartness that borders on sour. The nose is light enough that it avoids being overpowering like some Lambics. Flavors of subtle roast with a peach flavor that honestly tastes like fresh pureed peaches. Very authentic and balanced. Wow. Smooth bodied, light, and crisp, making it very easy to drink. The aftertaste is subtle rich and sweet peach, with a slight linger after the clean, smooth finish. Very easy to drink, and very tasty.

Poured a hazy orange with an off-white head.
The smell was of - peach.
The taste was of peach with a malt/hop background. It was a very good combination. I'm not necessarily a big fan of lambics. But, this worked well. The peach with a hop background made it taste very good. It was like eating a peach while drinking a good beer.
I split it with a friend. We both enjoyed it. I could have drank it by myself - was looking for more.
Addition to notes:

Had as an occassional treat since reviewing - and consistently good brew...the peaches don't interfere with the "beer" qualities as much as some sweeter lambic fruits do.

Before going in, I'll admit I'm a sucker for this style, or used to be, for I haven't had this variety in 2-to-3 years, if memory serves rightly. After trying so many others since, what do I think now, hmmmm?
Clear, light, peachy hue, with a nice showing of milky white foam on top, dotted with bubbles, softly skimming down to a faint ring, very attractive.
Lift to the nose, and:peachy as can be, sweet, yet also tart, like a Jolly Rancher, by gum. Very fruity, but not overly sweet or cloying in the least, tastefully balanced.
To drink, soft and sweet, juicy and fruity, with a limited texture, but very pleasant flavor. Happily rings the mouth with deliciousness, you can't stop from sipping, there's just the right, in this case, balance of sweet vs. tart, and here the peachy sweetness has just a slight edge, but not so much that it's a treacly mess in the mouth. Lively mouthfeel, excellent carbonation, full-bodied, delightful finish.
Screw champagne, move over, Mimosas, or, damn, what's th one at with peaches? Bellinis! Forget about 'em, take on one of these tasties as a nightcap or toast to your sweetie.
Nice to know I can still appreciate the stuff, though it will remain a special occasion only kind of selection.

I've been buying the Lindeman's line for my girlfriend and this one was new for her. This beer pours a light bodied and a bright and vibrant sunset orange in color with a one finger cream colored head. It smells of peach pie, ice cream, and has a spritzer like carbonation. It really does smell like peach cobbler. It tastes of sweet and slightly syrupy peaches. It has really good flavor but it is a tad sweet but is still very tasty. The aftertaste is pretty nice as well as the peach mellows out. It drinks very light and isn't overly sticky despite all of the sugar. This could have been tart, more like a geueze, but it definitely doesn't aim to be sour. This is one of the better Peach inspired lambics and worth a try.

My girlfriend says that this one is "perfect".

01/08/05- Purchased at Tower Market in San Francisco, CA

Presentation- 750ml champagne like bottle. No freshness date. Poured into my Lindemans flute like glass.

Appearance- Yellow-orangish sparky pour with a slight cream head which slowly fades away. Leaves minor lacing.

Smell- Wonderful scent of fresh orchard peaches. A bit sweet and a bit tart in the nose.

Taste- Possibly the best way to get my vitamin C. Awesome taste of fresh fresh fresh peaches. More sweet, almost sugary sweet. A tad bitter when swallowing.

Mouthfeel- Suprisingly full feeling for me. Maybe it's because of the sweet creamy texture.

Drinkability- This has always been one of my go to beers on special occasions. I bit sweet to slam a few bottles, but it's about as drinkable as it gets. Everyone I know personally loves this lambic.

Pours a clear yellowish / orange color with a thin 1/4" head. The aroma is killer, as the fruit is easily detectable while holding the brew an arms length away from my nose. The flavor is of sweet apricots and peaches, but balanced with a musky yeast tone.

Light-medium in body and high carbonation levels create a crisp mouthfeel. The fruit flavors ride on the tongue briefly after swallowing. Nicely drinkable, but one can not have a few of these without having a fruity sweetness overload.

At the time of this review, this is #32 on the "Top Beers - Lambic - Fruit" list on beeradvocate.com. Served in a Lindemann's flute glass because I own them for this reason, would be dumb not to you think?

Beer is yellow and mostly clear with a nice white head of medium and large bubbles. Moderate retention, no lacing though, aggressive carbonation.

Aroma is all peach all the way, smells nice.

This sint' a great beer and not a great lambic but it is sweet and light and very fruit forward, it is a fun beer and hte wife seems to like it especially in summer so I don't have a problem with it. I'll never go out of my way to drink one of these fake lambics but I'll try anything once, better than I expected.
