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.

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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Well, I knew this was no traditional lambic going in and I got what I deserved. Clear orange color, guess all the yeast was filtered out, bummer. It smelled at first like it might have just a note of funk but no, it was not gonna happen with this "lambic". It tastes like peach juice and syrup and really not like lambic at all. It does not taste bad but its just a sweet beer that tastes a lot liek lindemans. not up my alley.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at the Copenhagen Beer Celebration Tune-Up, London. Pours light gold with a fine, white film head. Artificial peach nose. Hugely sweet flavor with ripe, artificial peach. Light bodied with fizzy carbonation. Sweet, lightly tart and highly artificial peach finish. This is alco-pop.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle at my Pre-CBC Tune-Up Tasting. It pours orange, with a thin white head. The nose is sweet peach, artificial notes and white sugar. The taste is sweet fruit, peach, artificial, sugar, hint of tanginess and gummy bears. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Far too sweet and one-dimensional. I am not perverse enough to enjoy this.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at Scopey’s CBC Tune-Up. Light slightly hazy orange body with a small head. The nose is strong sugary peach and sweet syrup. Breakfast juice. The taste is is very much the same - syrupy peach juice with an artificial tinny general fruit flavoring. As sweetened fruit beers go, it’s not offensive. Almost refreshing, even. Overall, it’s extremely sweet. You could drink it to get a nostalgic, child-like sugar high.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a light hazy orange color with aromas of sweet peaches, and sugar. Flavors are all peach with subtle flavors of grass, apricots, and tartness. I can see why my fiancé likes these beers, but not my cup of tea.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
0,25l bottle Goldden ange cloudy liquid with white head, sets quickly. Aromas are peaches, woody leather, fruits. Taste is earthy, tart with mouthful smooth carbonation. Texture medium full. Middle taste is sweet , peaches and some other fruits, with abrupt aftertaste lactic acid or some dry grassy flavors. The peach flavor is overwhelming, but still has some decent sweet sour balance.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into a tulip. Bottled on 100120, which I’m guessing is January 20th, 2010. That or on my 34th birthday (I’m 25).
3.5 A: Mildly hazed light orange color. Two fingers of frothy white head. Retention is a little below average and no lacing is left.
4.0 S: Well, this is definitely backsweetened. The most aggressive aroma is a peach ring candy-like peachiness. The underlying aromas are hard to get to due to the peachy sweetness, but if you try hard enough, you can pick some out. A touch of barnyard with a lot more apple orchard. Acidity is low, but there are hints of tangy lacic acid. Grassy as well.
4.0 T: The taste is about as sweet as it gets without getting cloying/annoying. Again, peach ring peachiness with watermelon flavored lollipops. Some apple orchard funk, but barely detectable due to the sweetness. Very, very light tartness and some grassy notes.
4.5 M: Lighter body. Good amounts of super spritzy carbonation. Incredibly smooth.
4.0 D: I have a reduced respect for backsweetened fruit lambics, but I think they are generally really tasty. Anyway, this hits the head as a peach soda type drink with a touch of real lambic character. Infinitely quaffable. I wish I got the 750.
Disclaimer: I rate backsweetened lambics to the style of sparkling fruit juice, not actual lambics.
