Very sweet, lot of fizz. Not a lot of substance. Comes across mostly like a sparkling peach wine. Not bad, but not my normal style. It was fine for a hot day but won't be buying this regularly.

Crystal clear, smells like funky peach, but tastes like peach champagne. Not sour and far too much residual sugar. Not even close to a traditional lambic.

A: The beer is clear pale yellow in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high white head that gradually died down, leaving a thin collar around the edge and some lacing on the surface.
S: Light to moderate aromas of peaches are present in the nose.
T: Much like the smell, the taste has flavors of peaches, although they don't seem fresh and seem a bit syrupy.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a low amount of carbonation.
O: The beer is easy to drink, but seems like it could use some more carbonation.

It's the color of peach if not tilting a little to the lighter side. It's got complete calrity...in fact, it looks a little flat. The bottle has instructions on how to tilt the glass and pour slowly to control and create a healthy head. Not a problem, as it goes down as quickly as it came up. All that remains is a thin and wispy bit at the edges. Very little lacing is left in tiny spots.
It actually doesn't smell too sweet, but they're definitely off-track on what they think a Lambic ashould be. Instead of tartness and funk, it's wild, uncontrolled and less coordinated funk that also smells of cork. What's going on here, exactly? It's not the worst, but it's just not right.
In the taste, the cork funk returns and the main difference is that it's quite sweet. I don't ind it to be cloying, as some do, but it's up there as far as sweetness goes. It's kind of a sugary peach. It's actually pretty pleasant as pure, fresh peach juice taste comes in.
There's a little crispness starting it off, but it doesn't last. It's quite syrupy and sticky and a little thin in the body. Eh.

12.7 ounce bottle. Served in a tulip, the beer pours a clear gold color with about an inch white head that didn't stay around for very long. There's a small amount of lacing. Aroma is peach syrup, bready malt, and a bit of earthy aromas, too. It tastes mostly like canned peaches syrup, sugar, and a bit of grainy malt. It's very sweet tasting. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit slick and syrupy with low carbonation. This is a one and done for me, I wouldn't buy it again. It was getting hard to finish this brew after a while! Worth a try if you've never had it before, but this is certainly one of the sweeter lambics I've had recently, too sweet for me. $5.99 a bottle.
