look: 4.25 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A- Pours a golden/brown/peach/orange color with a decent 2 finger head at first that quickly dissipates into a thin film over the brew. the lacing is good on this one, as there is a mountainous ridge of foam that clings to the side of my glass! As for the carbonation, much like the premium Framboise, this one too has champagne like bubbly goodness that is easy to agitate upon swirling ever so slightly....a decent looking lambic for sure!

S- I really like the aromas found here.....yeasty biscuit, gentle peaches and cream, malt and candied sweetness, fresh fruit and just an ever so slight bittering finish.

T- This is nice! Flavors follow the aromas fairly closely, but with a tart accent! Refreshing peach fruit/pit, and creamy, mild flesh. The funky wild yeast/bacteria add a zingy flavor that is very rustic, but pleasant, and this reminds me of a revved up spritzer! The finish is relatively clean but does have a bit of a lingering aftertaste that keeps my palate wanting more!

M/O- Light and refreshing, with a funky sour zest that only enhances the fruitiness! Highly drinkable and I could enjoy many of these in a sitting....I enjoyed this with a peach tart and boy was it wonderful! The sweet and sour characteristics of both just blended so well! I recommend this one and will buy again!

I'm going to go way against the grain with this review; from what others have said about this beer I fear a number of people have gotten overly-old or mishandled bottles, or something. Anyway, here we go. Notes from a serving off a tap at the great Beer Trappe in Lexington, KY.

Pours a nice, slightly peach-colored golden color, with a fluffy white head that persists for a minute or more and leaves a very persistent lacing.

Smells appetizing tart and very much of peaches, with hints of spice and a vague grassiness, most likely from what few hops were included.

The taste is, quite simply, bang-up what I want from a flavored lambic, but rarely get. Very forward in its flavoring, a very natural, only slightly sweet peach flavor up front is matched beautifully by an appetizing, vinegary tartness and a surprisingly assertive funkiness. Slight hints of herbs, including lemon-balm and mint, can be detected behond the dueling peach and tart/funky flavors that dominate. The flavors are in such great balance that the beer stays deliciously drinkavle, aided by a medium-light body and a nice level of carbonation. Surprisingly complex, refreshing, and delicious as hell.

Aroma is peaches along with a background of funk. The flavor is peaches, fruit, malts, mild earthiness/dirty and a mix of tart and sweet in the finish.

The beer poured into the glass clear golden amber with a low white head which lasted to coat the glass.

The aroma was acidic sourness with a fruity peach presence with a bit of diacetyl buttery character mixed in.

The flavor was sweet with a strong peach fruit flavor followed by a light sourness that was acidic and complemented the peach character very well. The flavor being sweet and sour was very tasty, yet not very complex in nature.

The finish was dry with a lasting peach fruit flavor and light acidic sour character into the aftertaste. The body was medium and the carbonation made the beer lightly effervescent. The beer had no real complexity, but ding dang it, I liked the flavor. It could be a favorite for some since it drinks very easily.

37.5 cl bottle, 01-2003 on cork, 03-05 on back label.

Heavy green 12.7oz glass bottle with gold orange foil around the neck and a black orange label showing two peaches.
Translucent maple body with large floaters. Large off-white head of small to large bubbles. Good retention and decent lace.
Sweet peach suryp smell.
Sweet peach flavor with a puckering tartness that takes over fairly quickly and lasts into becoming the aftertaste. An odd metallic note is unfortunately present.
Medium body, puckering and dry.
Pretty good drinkability. Seems to be more of a peach soda than a peach lambic. Still refreshing and tasty.

Poured the bottle into a Lindeman's flute. Pours out a hazy, turgid brown. Nose is very lightly fruity, but not identifiably peach. Can't detect any brett character either. Flavor is nicely peach, though, much more tart than sweet (unlike the cloying Lindeman's peche), though a lot of residual sugars do remain. Lack of brett funk is still notable. Finishes sour.

Overall, a disappointing lambic.
