3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Split a bottle with my family on Christmas. Poured hazy golden, with a moderate sized off-white head. Aroma of real peach; a bit sweet but primarily tart. Flavor was again heavy on the peach with tart, musty, earthy notes. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Not incredibly complex, but a solid, very drinkable American interpretation of the style.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a hazy peach color with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet and fruity. The flavor, unlike an authentic lambic, is sweet with some fruits and mild acidity. The body is light with a dusty texture and medium carbonation.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Partly cloudy golden body with no head. Aroma is mainly peach but the taste is a bit less focussed. Very clean with a taste of various fruits (apples, peach, citrus, more…) and too sweet for its own good. If there’s a good lambic in there (and I doubt so) then it’s destroyed by the fruits and the sweetness. No carbonation is visible to the eye but it is nonetheless felt in the mouth. Tickling sensation of very small bubbles. Inoffensive summer drink that barely classify as a beer. Trashobad Peach Lambic.

I have to go against the grain on this one - sure, it lacks the complexity of some of the better lambics, but for something made in the states, this is pretty nice - very musty, earthy aroma, with a strong peach presence and notes of aged blue cheese, and a slight apple cider quality - quite tart and sour (not to cantillon standards, but for something made in the US, very much so) - notes of sour apple of cheese/brett funk - mild peach makes its presence known underneath the barnyard/cheese flavors, adding a bit more complexity - a slight phenolic character in the background, and a mild acidicty make things a little less enjoyable, but this is a fairly nice american-made lambic.

This is not a very good beer. Bought this one on my way to Boston one weekend, but I have to say it isn’t a very good lambic. No peaches in the aroma or in the flavor. Just plain sourness. Like cheesy-toed feet. I guess there is some cheese-qualtiy in here, and its not that difficult to drink, but even for a lambic, it lacks substance and complexity. Light and airy. eh.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz purchased from the brewery/winery store. Pours a very lightly hazy golden with a quickly diminishing white head. Aroma is peaches and a good dose of acetic acid (vinegar) as well as some horseblanket. good start. Taste is peaches, acetic acid again, horseblanket, but all these attributes are much lighter in their taste than aroma. Body quickly becomes very watery and bland...and that’s the way it finishes.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Waxy, flowery, fieldberry yogurt, lactic aroma. Hazy blonde body is topped by a fizzy white head that collapses quickly to a lasting cover. Peaches are notable in the mildly lactic flavour. Some plastic. Aftertaste evokes strawberry yogurt at warm temperature. Medium body with decent carbonation that initially is very engagaing but is sadly very short-lived. Bottle sampled with MartinT, Olivier_MTL and Rastacouere.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Quite sweet aroma conjured the peach juiciness with candied orange and darker malts. Annoyingly high phenolic nature translates into waxy/plastic aspects. Rather devoid of any citric or lactic nature and the fruit never does shine enough to make it a serious fruit beer.
