[Bottle] shared by Skyview. Pours a nearly still, cloudy gold. Aroma is bretty and slightly acidic, with a fruit character like peach-o’s. Flavor has nearly no sourness except for a slight tartness. Thinnish flavor, jammy peach, and light prickle.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle, aged about one year I would guess. Pours a lightly hazy, dark orange amber color. There’s virtually no head or lacing to note. The The aroma shows a good deal of oaky barrel funk and tart, fermenting peach, with notes of sweet wheat grain underpinnings and perhaps some raw oats. Vanilla comes through from the barrel. Though tart and peachy, there’s very little of the citric acidity that I crave in a true lambic. Likewise, flavors show a bit too much sweet cereal grain and wheat malt for the style, though the fruity notes of peach, nectarine, and pluot are tart and tasty. The oak again imparts strong, woody vanilla notes, while a soft, earthy wildness offers up a bit of subdued funk. Medium bodied and very lightly carbonated, the palate lacks spunk, and just seems overly sugary for what it should be. This stuff is a world away from being a lambic, and certainly shouldn’t be labeled as such, but it’s still a decently tasty, drinkable sour ale.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden yellow, no head, no lacing.
Aroma is quite nice with lots of peaches, light sourness, good sweetness.
Flavour still has lots of peaches but is a little flat and lifeless, some light tartness, candish.
Sweet but a bit watery in the mouth, thin body, light carb.
Finished with some sweetness, more peaches.
After the success of their other lambics, this was a step backwards. Quite watery. I do like the peach flavour in this though.
750ml bottle purchased at the brewery in Bloomington, Indiana.
Opened March 2009.

Muddy orange juice look with full off-white head. nose was nice to me...giving me a nice, sour, vivid peach. The flavors were lightly soured and funky with loads of peach. Note overly acidic yet it remained nice and clean with vivid peach notes abound.

In an effort to knock out the rest of my backlog, my ratings will be fairly generic and sparse. If the beer had anything special to offer, it will be noted following this disclaimer. The number ratings above are accurate based on my tasting notes. Following the elimination of my backlog, all beers will be entered in real time and will be more useful. Sorry for the inconvenience.
This brew made me sad. I was expecting much much more. It was drinkable and light, just didn’t have the kick that I wanted. Not that great of a lambic.
