2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle bb’91 shared@ BBF ’15 Vintage Tasting ZO, merci. Turned into dustily condensed Haribo peaches with a vinous, aerated core. Seems like the syrupy core of this light ’80-style lambiek has been preserved rather well, the little original alcohol and sourness dissipating into a manageable staleness.

Bottle thanks to Rainer. Pours a clear orange with small off white head. The aroma is strong peach and funk. Thin mouthfeel with strong sweet peach and mango. Decent.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2015 Another sweet fruit ’lambic’, if you can still call them that, in the St.-Louis range; comparable to Lindemans Pêcheresse, but even sweeter and more sugary, more one-dimensional and with even lower traces of lambic in nose and mouth. Not for me - this product was launched in 1988 and has apparently been discontinued now, but I won’t miss it one bit.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear reddish peach color with light lasting head. Smells like a peach orchard on a warm day. Tastes like a gently fizzed peach nectar. Smooth sweet and slightly dry but still sweet and slightly syrupy.

I guess Lindemans is the standard by which these type of beers are judged by. This one is not as good. Very similar though.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 25 cl. Pours clear darker golden in color with thin whitish
head. Peaches in aroma, some sweetness and hints old grass as well.
Just a bit sour, more of them peaches in taste. Very fruity. Easy to
drink. And suits well between some more ’big guns’. Loads of them
peaches in aftertaste as well.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured dark golden color with little to no head. Aroma is kinda relativity foul, with strong undertones of fermented peaches. Flavor is kinda sweet, fruity and forgettable.
