3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2005 355 ml bottle. Corked and capped? hmmm... My first real lambic (we canít count sam adams cranbery lambic can we?) and so I am in no way qualified to rate this. But I can tell you how it tasted to me.. Interesting to say the least. Loads of peach flavor. Tart, sweet, and a little creamy. Nice mouthfeel, good carbonation. Bought this for my wife while I had an Allagash Tripel 750ml on my birthday. Of course I had to taste it... this is a great "wife beer", she loved it (she didnt like my allagash tripel) I donít think you could get a buzz on it if you tried with only 2.5% alcohol. Still, it is a very nice fruit beer with obvious quality. Iím buying the rest of the series for her, but hoping she doesnt drink it every day at $6 per 355ml bottle! This is the most expensive beer I have purchased to date. Not something I would spend money on regularly but interesting to try and a tasty special treat.. but a complete joke for a beer. Lindemanís is laughing all the way to the bank. What a ripoff!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2005 This is the most drinkable of the fruit lambics that Iíve tried, but Iím not thrilled. Nice golden-orange color with a short-lived soapy white head and little carbonation. This smells peachy, obviously, with a little tartness. Thatís how it tastes, too. But, why?

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Wow! This beer has a lightly carbonated hazy golden body with peachy highlights. The clean, white head is small and quickly dissipates but looks great while it lasts. Flavor is fruity and sweet but not cloying. Notes of wine, peach, and malt combine to create a flavor that is satisfying but leaves you wanting more. This beer has a very fruity, vinous palate and a Champagne like character. Finishes with a sweet tickle and some notes of cork. Overall, this is a festive beer to serve in a Champagne glass. I plan on serving some at Christmas and some more on New Yearís Eve. Outstanding!

Fantastic! Was bracing myself to experience my first Lambic, but this was a welcome treat right off the first sip. I would love to savor this with a good dinner. Peaches on palate, sweet but not crossing that line where they taste Jolly Rancher-style artifical. Bubby a bit. Nice looking in proper flute glass when served on tap at the Gaslight. I look forward to more.

On tap at The Gaslight. Well. ...this is like the densest dankest peach taste ever. If you arenít interested in having peach tasting beer, then go home and stop SABOTAGING me. Good stuff if on the weak side.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
duvel tulip glass: once i popped the cork i was greeted with the delight of a delicious cheese and fruit aroma. itís peachy, alright. and itís sweet! i expected some sourness, but no. itís hardly tart; yet itís very welcome. and this is cremey, juicy, and so good... if only it were with more malt complexities. i'd love to taste this with a lot of doughy, biscuity, gooey piecrust characteristics... but in the end, there's a nice lip-licking and slightly dry peach flavor that i nearly adore--i think it can be slightly cloyish in the end. (also, the aroma seems to become horsey and less cheesey.) anyway, this is a dessert or ritual beer... overall, though, i'm satisified!
