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.
Thank you Kraddel! 250 ml. bottle sampled. BBF 1991. Pours amber with a patchy off-white head. Nose is massive artificial candy-like oxidized peach candy sweetness, artificial sweeteners galore & light yoghurt, very sweet oxidation layered on top. Carbonation is clear, massive sweetness & oxidation are evident in the body. Taste is mix of massive artificial sweetness, sickeningly sweet oxidation, artificial peach candy,… As I have noticed in the past, beers with this much added sweetness & artificial elements preserve quite well, they remain largely similar with only minor off-notes (largely obscured by the massive sweetness). This one is still okay for what it is but it is horribly, almost nauseatingly sweet. kraddel (8731) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAR 30, 2016
Pours clear orange. No head. Smell is prachtig , sweet . taste is sugary, peach. Quite good on carbonation. Pretty drinkable, surprisingly. Hopverdju (1427) - BELGIUM - JAN 10, 2016
Koperkleurig bier met weinig wit schuim. Geur: uitgesproken perzik. Smaak: zoet, suiker, perzik. Weinig koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: wat zurig en terug zoet. sinfull (1776) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 27, 2015
Hazy , golden color; moderate white head. Peaches, acidity and some metal notes in the aroma. Tart , fruity taste with peaches on the front. Light , pleasant thirst-quencher. tapthis (272) - Baytown, Texas, USA - JUN 22, 2015

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.
8/II/15 - 25cl bottle @ Vintage Tasting Brugs Bierfestival - BBE: 1991 (2015-167) djd07 (15341) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 18, 2014
Clear dark orange beer, irregular off-white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: sweet, peach candy, sugary, fruity touch. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet, peaches, sugary, peach candy, little oxidized. Aftertaste: bit sourish, lemony, fruity, slightly oxidized, bit aged but note much, peach candy. Wow, this held up amazingly well, for 24 years!
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. Alengrin (5629) - BELGIUM - OCT 7, 2014
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.
