4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cloudy golden color. Some head with little lacing. Barn yard/horse blanket nose and taste. The peach has almost completely disappeared from the flavor. Chalky texture and dry finish.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Another great brew from Timat Bitter End. Poured in a snifter. Peach in color. Light light yellow pinkish orangeish hue. Nose is incredibly sharp. This was my first Lambic so my palate was really overwhelmed by the sourness. I couldn’t make much else out. The peach honestly wasn’t noticeable, but I’m certain it was in there. Aftertaste is nice and dry. GREAT BREW

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hay and rye bread malt (M); barnyard and leather yeast (H); peaches and sour white grapes. Deep peach body is slightly hazy with nice carbonation. Moderately sweet, moderately acidic flavor becomes a moderately acidic, moderately sour finish. Medium body, watery/oily texture, lively carbonation. The bottom line is: I could easily mistake this for a Cantillon brew...simply beautiful.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy yellow, like a weizen, only little carbonation. Not peachy--a hint in the aroma, then nothing else. Lovely sourness and restrained tingle on tongue. More boldly "Cantillon-esque" than other American lambics--a worthy contribution, though not without its faults.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear yellowish appearance. This was similar to their "Lip Burner Lam-Beak", except it didn’t have as much of the pungent vinegar aroma. A bit less tart as well, still somewhat sour. The peach flavoring is only slight and it comes out toward the end. This might be a good "gateway" for me to finally start appreciating lambics.
