My first Lambic it pours a very hazy almost orange color. The smell and taste is a can't miss peach. A little sweet like wine so I'm not sure how much you could drink without it getting old. Easy going down with no aftertaste but one is enough.

330ml bottle (@4 % ABV), part of a quartet of this brewery's fruit Lambic offerings to just up and appear in Alberta of late.

This beer pours a clear, bright medium golden yellow colour, with three fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and yet caked off-white head, which leaves a bit of dissipating fog bank lace around the glass as it slowly and lazily sinks away.

It smells of sweet apricot/peach juice (almost candied), a bit of musty yeastiness, and very subtle grainy and wheaten malt notes. The taste is grainy and doughy pale malt, sugary peach flesh, some lesser stone fruitiness, free-range sucrose, and an ephemeral earthy yeast character.

The carbonation is fairly laid-back in its insouciant-seeming frothiness, the body a decent middleweight, and mostly smooth, as the fruity essences here are not of the particularly tart sort. It finishes still pretty sweet, kind of like those sour peach gummy things once you've licked all the tart gritty stuff off of them.

Overall, this is a straightforward fruit brew, nice and peachy (take that either way), if rendered in a very simple manner. Not much of any Lambic presence can really be detected, outside of that ghostly yeast thing. Refreshing in its own right, but one small bottle is certainly enough for me.

Light and floral with big peach on the nose. A touch sweet, but full flavored. Not much tart to speak of, but very drinkable. A little sticky mouth feel as well but overall an enjoyable fruit bomb

Maybe the most confusing taste I've encountered. Sour initially, then very sweet, very good but at the same time weirdly awkward. Nice taste of peach that turns weird.

Bottle: a standard 330mL brown bottle with an old-school Belgian label.

Appearance: pours a hazy, light golden-copper in colour with spritzy carbonation. A thick, fluffy white head pops up and hangs about for a time. A good looking beer.

Aroma: a quite strong, and very peach-orientated aroma. Not much else other than some dried stone fruits. The peach is very natural - way better than the usual 'artificial flavour' nonsense.

Taste: again that lovely natural peach comes through strongly - not much else to go with it, but it is a perfect varietal style.

Aftertaste: a touch of bitterness comes through on the finish. Not much tartness to cover the sweetness, but some marmalade jamminess comes through.

Mouth feel: reasonably thick for a lambic, made very drinkable by the fluffing carbonation.

Overall: I'm impressed by this lambic - it is very natural and quite sweet without being cloying. Quite expensive, but well worth a single or 4-pack every now and then.
