12.7oz bottle, bought on close-out from Party Source. Cage over the cork reads "Sep 2007". Shared with b3shine. Clear amber color. Thin white head. Decent lace... Doesnít look bad. Kind of a musty, malty, almost "old-hop" aroma in the nose. Just smells kind of musty; fermented old fruit. Nice peachiness in the flavor, though. Taste is a bit sweet. Spices are noticeable, some fall-type "pumpkin" spices. Light tart, too. Light to medium body. Very light carbonation. Slightly viscous body, but no stickiness. Alright.. especially for a 2007 bottle

375 ml bottle to snifter (thanks DrSilverworm). The cage on this one says 2007. Looks solid; a transparent copperish-orange with thin white lacing. Smells of peaches and spice with a very sweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Better than the ratings indicate (maybe because people expected it to be a lambic?).

Ooooh, a retired Belgian! How shiny, you can even taste the rarity! Sadly, this was not the case. 2005 on the cork, and the only number I can make out on the cage is 2007. Cork came off with a nice enough pop. 375ml bottle. A - Apple juice body, a tiny white head that disappears really quick. Carbonation is minimal. Little bit of sediment. Its not yeast, just some floating bits of brown substance which I can only imagine is cork. S - Is putrid the right word? I guess not. Its certainly unpleasant though. Like stale spicy bread with some strong offensive odors towards the end. Just a hint of rotten peaches. T - Bread and some light peach flavor thatís followed up by some spice and off flavors. I canít finish the bottle due to the flavor, but it is a bit better than the aroma. O - This beer did not age well. I know it didnít have the most humble of beginnings (artificial sweeteners and spice?) but I have had success with some other aged liefmans beers. The kriekbier and frambozenbier actually held up quite well to 5 years. Iím afraid the de Boomgaard line falls short. I would avoid any and all bottles of this since they are now ALL past their prime...if it ever did have a prime.

Pours a light hazy golden color. Aromas of peachs, malts, and bread. Flavor is wheat bread with peaches on it, way to fruity for my taste. Its all I could do to suck this one down.

Cornfield (5473) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 19, 2008
This poured a golden orange body with little of any head. The aroma is peach (Surprize!),maybe a bit too sweet. The flavor cuts back on the honey sweetness and delivers a fairly fresh fruit taste. Peachy finish and pretty refreshing.

Rusty (1536) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 8, 2008
Pours a hazy reddish golden almost brown see through color with a small white head. Aroma of peach, vinegar, musty funk. Flavor is sweet peaches, vinegar, syrupy sugars, and a little too cloying. Not very good.

Weak apple, pear, and peach aroma. Hazy golden pour, no head. Full peach flavor and mouthfeel. Delicious and refreshing.

This is certainly better than the Tropicale made by the same brewery. Good peach aroma and flavor. But there are much better peach Lambics to be found in the wonderful world of beer. A bit too sweet, but a fun beer to drink.

Donít know why these Boomgaards get no love. They are sweet and delicious. Probably some inconsistency with the style. Who cares. Yum.

Kinz (3279) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - NOV 16, 2007
Lightly hazy deep gold, slight but creamy and lasting head. Aroma is quite faint and rather musty. Sweet malts, followed by a big hit of undefined sweetness, and some fruitiness on the finish that is somewhat peach oriented, but doesnít exactly leap out at you. Perhaps a spiced and preserved peach. Not as offensive as I feared, but I prefer the Lindemanís Peche if Iím going to go down this road.
