Fegley’s Brew Works Pêche Lambic

RATINGS: 26   MEAN: 3.55/5.0   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.39/5   SEASONAL: Special   EST. CALORIES: 186   ABV: 6.2%
Our interpretation of this Belgian-style sour ale was fermented with both wild yeast and bacteria. It was made with 100% real peaches so that our Pêche has a fruity palate. Aged in French Oak barrels, that previously held red wine, were shipped to us from the Napa Valley which lends greatly to the dry, wine-like finish.

On tap at Brewtopia. A very nice peach lambic beer. Smells of ripe fresh peaches. The acidity is just how I like my lambics to be with a lightly sweet undertone. It poured a peachy hazy orange color with a nice lacing on top. Easy to drink with a nice dry finish.

An interesting lambic flavor. I normally prefer either raspberry and blackberry, but the peach was surprisingly refreshing especially after an evening of BBQing. I would only drink this one if its cold.

Tap @ the pub and listed as the 2005 vintage. The last rating is almost 3 years old. Maybe I should have gotten a growler. Poured a hazy light yellow color with a white head. The aroma is tart with some earthy and peach pit notes. The flavor is woody tart and fruity. Some peach notes for sure. Light bodied with a dry woody finish.

Wow, looks like I copied E’s scores. In any event, I was impressed with this one from the pour on. Nice thin head on top of the cloudy yellow appearance. Lacing was excellent. The aroma was hard to pick up beyond barny-like and sweet. Flavor wasn’t too complex (which was the only knock on it), although for a fruity lambic, it had more going on in it than fruit (the peach may not have been detected if I didn’t know it was in there). Tartness of a good flemish sour with somewhat of a lightly sweet balance in there. Oak and tarty fruits (apples, some cherries) in the flavor. A nice showing.

I’ve had this several times and found it to be way too tart and sweet.... so much so that it was difficult to drink. Mouthfeel was thin. BBW offers tons of great beers so I didn’t hesitate to move onto to something else. In contrast, their framboise is has a more balanced flavor.

Aroma seems at times to be all farm and funk and at others to be all sweet honey and peaches. Opaque yellow-tan coloured body is topped with a low, off white head that recedes to ring. Peachy, juice-like flavour has a pleasant, creeping acidity but lacks the funkiness of a true lambic and comes across as being a bit too constantly sweet. Medium body feels not fully attenuated. Fair carbonation. Sampled at Kennett Square Brewfest 2005.

jeffin7 (613) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - DEC 7, 2005
Aroma is peach, wood, and a bit of funk. Flavor is tart fruit up front, funk in the middle, and oak in the finish. Dry finish with a nice mellow aftertaste of all the flavors blended.

Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 29, 2005
Some sour musty mold funk going on, a lot of tannins, which mix interestingly with the brett. The peach doesn’t quite mesh. I would have liked it to be a little more flavorful, if not any sweeter. The sweetness was about right, but the fruit seemed subdued. Cloudy, tart, afterburps of green apples and rocks. Not quite assertive enough--the funk muddles the rest of it.

Cheek-puckeringly sour, as advertised, so I can’t complain. A bit much for my taste, but it was certainly a quality brew. Enjoyed at NYC’s BrewTopia event. Hint o’ peach, but just a whiff.

Brewtopia 11-12-05. Yes JIM! I tasted and rated a Lambic. You sour cheese guys would like this. It was sour and cheese and smeeled like gym socks, but, I am starting to belive that is what you like about it, and what the brewer is after. I was able to stomach this due to the slight peach after taste.
