Lindemans Pecheresse

A = Pours a dark orange with a thin foam head that dissapates into nothingness.

S = Smell of fresh peaches and orange peel quckly drenches the air.

T = Explosion of peach flavour that really blows you away. A slight tartness creeps in the middle followed by a dry bitter sweet finish. Wonderful.

M = Low carbonation allows you to fully explore the flavour. Just let it linger on your tongue before you swallow.

D = Very very drinkable.

Had this at Au Trappiste on tap, one of their many Beligans.

Pours cloudy and, believe it or not, peach colored. Smells of peaches, with some sour notes and the sort of yeast aromas one would expect of the genre. The head is thick and cloudy, and stays around long enough to produce a nice lace on the glass.

Tastes of peaches, some very agreeable sour notes, and very little maltyness. These contribute to a very fine and rich mouthfeel however. The sweetness is fairly well balanced, but by the end of the 50cl I was ready for something less sweet.

This is an excellent offering from Lindemans. One could equally relegate it to the realm of sweet fruity beers with limited appeal or one not to miss when found on the shelf or on tap. I will personally come back to the Pecheresse once in a while.

Pours lively, much like champagne with a very thin white head which dissipates seconds after poured. A nice golden colour with a shade of orange and very clear.

What an amazing nose on this brew, possibly one of the best I've come across. Smells very rich and peachy. Fantastic, enough to make me salivate for a taste.

The smell is followed up by the exact taste. Predominately fresh ripe peaches. This sweetness is balanced by a nice tart finish.

A nice light feel to it with lots of carbonation. Intense feeling generated on the tongue by the sweetness and carbonation ending in a nice tart finish similar to green apple.

A very nice fruity lambic, one that would be fantastic to have on a hot day. Very refreshing and bursting with flavour.

Thanks to JLindros for sharing. 2011 vintage

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice crystal clear golden hue with a thin halo and light wisps.

S - Aromas of pleasant lambic funk, musty cellar basement funk, bright candy peach, bright fresh fruit, cooked fruit and jam. Super aromatic.

T - Taste is incredibly sweet, super super syrup. Behind the sugar the peaches are there in all its glory, but getting to them is difficult. It's so simple syrup heavy that it weighs it down. The peach, once you find it is glorious.

M - Mouthfeel is somewhat syrupy and sweet, though there's nice carbonation.

O - Overall this beer is and was awesome until all the sweetness comes. Without that it's actually incredibly good, hell, even with the sweetness I'm still shocked at how good this is.

Best before Jun 2014, so probably 2011 or 2012 vintage, purchased in Belgium a year ago and carried it back here. Shared with rudzud.

POurs a very clear golden honey color with some floating particulates, soapy lacing too.

Nose is loaded with fresh peach, canned peaches, so much good peach, really surprising! Nice dank basement funk, not super funky but nice enough, light Brett funk almost cheesy notes, very faint touch of cork.

Taste holy shit sweeettt!!! I know their beers were sweet before, btu this nose didn't lead me to believe it would be sweet! This is like condensed apple syrup sweet, intense and candy like, Behind the crazy sweet sugar is a nice peach, canned peaches mostly layered in syrup, with flashes of fresh peach here and there. Little funk behind that, and a hint of cork, mild acidity too. FInish is like a layer of syrup over the tongue not going away, with a little tangy acidity onthe back end, and more canned peaches. It actaully gets quite nice behind the sweetness, and after a few sips my taste buds get used to it mostly.

Mouth is med bod and super syrupy, decent carb.

Overall it has so much good peach, canned and fresh, with a nice light funk, but that sweetness just layers of syrup, but behind that the peach is so good! Best beer from Lindemans I've ever had by far, just wish they didn't make them so friggen sweet!

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance: Hazy peach color with spritzy effervescence and a thin ring of foam.

Aroma: Intense aroma of peach, funk, some leather and tropical fruit. Very sophisticated.

Taste: So intense! The peach taste overwhelms everything else. Back notes of banana and some tropical fruit.

Palate: Spritzy, medium bodied, medium-high sweetness, medium-low carbonation. Finishes sweet leaving a lingering marmalade taste.

Overall: I'm afraid I'm in disagreement with my fellow beergeeks. I think this beer is a great example of craftmanship and has it's own place in the Lambic Ladder, in my opinion.

25 cl bottle poured into a Lindemans flute because I can. Beer is yellow with a slight haze, high carbonation and a soft white head of tiny bubbles that leaves a lot of lacing on the glass. Looks excellent. There is also a chick with great side boob action on label with some hint of some ass as well. About the best beer label out there.

Mildly tart aroma, with a fruity peachness to it. Smells good.

Beer tastes like peach candy. It's sweet and clean with a strong midpalate fruit presence and a wet finish. It's a good beer but it really is like liquid candy. It's not cloying or overly aggressive / in your face. The fruit is there...it's better than the other peach one they make for the US.

Served from a tap at a Belgian Beer room. Clear gold, with a nice white head. The aroma immediately hits, peaches. The taste is extremely sweet, and almost syrupy peach like. Mouthfeel is full, again almost syrupy. I felt this was more of an after dinner or dessert type of lambic. Also fairly low ABV.
Probably not for everyone, but I enjoyed it, and would consider keeping a couple on hand for pleasing different guests.

An easy drinking, simple, peach Lambic with plenty of appeal.

aroma: sour/spice/peach

taste: tart peach with a touch of funk and spice.

Could drink a lot of this - a summer picnic with friends comes to mind. This beer lets the peach shine. Would be a good introduction beer for someone who doesn't usually drink beer.

A- Crystal clear golden color with a big fluffy whit head. The head offered weak retention and moderate lacing. Weak retention = bad. Lacing = good.

S- Mostly sour apples (I think the peach combined with the sourness of the lambi makes it seem like sour apples . . . ). Definitely some peach notes as well. Maybe a little pear in there too. Basically, think white, crunch fruit with sourness on top of it.

T- Again, fruit is the dominant flavor here. I get more apple than peach again. Call me crazy, but the taste reminds me of bitting into an apple. There is also a little pear and plenty of peach along with it. There is a sour element to the entire taste, but it is balanced out well by the intense sweetness of the fruit flavors. I think the yeast did some really cool stuff here. The aftertaste is of fresh green apples and peach juice.

M- Light bodied, but a little syrupy at the same time. Strange combination.

O- Very interesting taste. The aroma and mouthfeel are a bit less than perfect, but the taste is really interesting.
