Notes: Formerly Pêche Lambic

Timmermans Pêche is made by adding 100% natural peach aromas to lambic fermenting in oak barrels. This beer’s characteristic aroma is very pleasant on the nose, and it has a velvety flavour and a creamy foam. Timmermans Pêche is a fruity drink, very easy on the palate, to be drunk with a smile on one’s lips.

look: smooth one finger head which dissipates to a wafer thin layer of tiny bubbles throughout, beer is orange in colours, lots of bubbles flying within it.

smell: incredibly peach forward, some sourness, floral, quite sweet, very aromatic and pleasant

taste: the sourness comes through first, followed by a sweet refreshing wave of peach, just a hint of hop bitterness there, overall quite pleasant

feel: medium to full bodied, medium to highly carbonated, quite syrupy with a dry finish.

overall: to me this seems like an underrated beer, while the peach flavours are dominant and it is quite sweet, there is still a nice sour tartness there and it makes for a pleasant relaxing drink.

1 sip of this stuff was enough; peach ice tea with a little alcohol, okay it has a fruity acidity and a co2 bitter tone but it is not a beer

De Alcampo. En copa Teku. Leyendo Intro to Python Ch16. Excelente como refresco con melocoton, con un sabor y aroma muy natural y fresco a la fruta, y abv oculto, pero de perfil lambic poco o nada

250 ml bottle, as Timmermans Pêche Lambicus, from Bris Ølutsalg, Jørpeland. ABV is 4%. Clear golden colour, moderate white head. Sugary aroma of peach candy and ripe peaches. Medium sweet flavour of peaches and peach candy, very little acidity. Not much lambic character here.

Clear deep golden color with white head. Aroma has artificial peach syrup and underlying generic beer notes which don't mix too well. Taste follows with sweet flavors, malt and fruit syrup, balanced out by some grain and earthy hop flavor. Very light fermented fruit notes on the finish. Medium body and carbonation. It's not really a bad beer but the flavors don't mix well.

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.

Clear and light orange with an amber tinge and a tiny patch of lacing on top in lieu of a head.

Sweet with a lot of peach, naturally and some tart on top. There is a little apricot as well and some noticeable sugary smells, overall it smells quite juicy as well.

Sweet sugars, some apricot from the nose and an overridding peach taste. There is a slightly tarty taste and some sourness too along with some background malts and a real juicy flavour.

Very sweet and juicy on the palate with good, strong carbonation and a lot of sourness on top. There is a slight bit of tart and a fizzy tang in there too.

An average beer although noting too bad or off-putting. There is a good mix of sweet sugars and fruit along with all the usualy tart and sourness expected from a lambic. It's not overly sickening either which is a good thing and was a good change from the ordinary.
