Pours a nice golden color with next to no head just a few bubbles. Has a bit of funky peach smell to it. Taste is about the same with a nice refreshing sour taste up front with a nice tart finish. Leaves my mouth watering. Pretty nice.

Cloudy gold beer. Very low carbonation. Intense sharp lemony lambic beer. Canít really taste much peach. Struggling with this beer and this beer style in general - different shades of lemon juice to me!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at DC Epic Sour Tasting 2010. Pours a crystal clear, deep gold with one ring of white head. Nose is soapy without being hoppy, vegetables, a little chemical, carrots, peaches. Flavor is tart, dusty, hay, lemon zest, peppery. Finish is medium bodied and tart. I didnít love this, I thought it was all over the place.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2013 750 ml bottle at DC Epic Sour Tasting 2010, courtesy of ryan - thank you sir! Clear golden color, no head, no lacing. Subtle aroma of apple skins. Taste of citrus, tart peach. Medium body. Straightforward. 3.5
Second tasting April 2013. Amazingly, the fruit is still evident. The beer seems more rich, complex and characterful. 4.1

750mL courtesy of ryan. Pours a clear yellow with a thin, white head. Smell is ripe peaches, peach skins, light tropical fruits. Taste is beautiful tart peaches, rich sourness, peach skins, has a creamy/rich texture even though the lambic in its entirety is light-bodied. Soft carbonation and lightly acidic. Very nice overall. Unblended peach lambic? Yes please.
Anyone who drinks this and passes it off as pretty meh, probably also gave Isabelle Proximus higher than a 4. Well guess what- this is part of the blend in Isabelle so there you go.
I also like how when this came out, distributors sent the bottles back and said they were infected and had become sour. Not shit sherlock.

750mL bottle from 2004, thanks ryan! Pours a hazy pinkish orange with a bit of white head. Aroma is nice, with lots of tart, sour (and somehow juicy) peaches, a bit of acidity, and some citrus. Taste is very acidic, with some sour fruit, funk, peach and lemon. Finish has a bit of acidic bite and a bunch of lemon peel. Best DFH ever...

Time to catch up before BCTC. Bottle at CL Rosso release. Thanks to all the RBíers and BAís that brought great beer. I think Dickinsonbeer brought this one. Tart grapefruit aroma. Grapefruit melon tart sweetness. Low carbonation. Tart finish. I didnít think I would like this one, but it was excellent.

3.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beer number three in a killer July 09 Super Secret Sour State Line Tasting (SSSSLT) featuring (first to last by my counts): Supplication, Consecration, La Folie, Dissident, Cuvee de Castleton, Red Poppy, Lambic de Hill, Festina Lente, Panil. Poured with a pale peachy color, goldenish too. The head was decent, some good invigorating carbonation present. Strong peach aroma, quite strong. The nose was incredible, clearly the best aspect of this beer. The flavor followed the aroma, strong peaches, sour notes, slight wheat bite in the finish. Flavor was unfortunately a tad on the watery side, was hoping for a bit more. A strong manís Festina Peche, but the flavor wasnít big enough to support it. Thanks so much, Bert, for this great opportunity at a DFH rarity! An awesome tasting!

750 ml bottle shared at StateLine by sloth... Why such a low rating for this beer??? Anyway... Light orange in color, small head. Great aroma of peaches. Taste is light peaches with a hint of tartness...not overdone.. Reminds me of a juiced up version of festina peche. Crisp and light, quite refreshing for a tart beer.... Over very enjoyable... Big thanks to bert for sharing a beer that I have been looking for the past two years!

UPDATED: APR 9, 2011 Just decorked an 04 bottle I have of this last month. Not one of my favorite DFH beers. Pours a golden hazy color with a white head that dissipates fast. Very sugary smell taste is very tart and I donít really taste the peach just tartness but it dissipates fast. Over all it reminds me of a sour ale not a lambic
