look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

375ml bottles purchased in Belgium. Every once in a while I like the cherry or rasberry beers, so I thought I'd try the peach.

It poured a golden-peachy color with very little head. The smell was like peach juice.

The taste . . . very sweet, very peachy. Too much peach, not enough beer flavor. This beer tasted like a 50-50 mix of ordinary beer and straight peach juice.

About halfway through the beer I thought about dumping it and opening something else, but it was getting late, so I forced it down.

If you want fruit beer, try something else.

Strong nose of peach syrup and oxalic acid. The palate is very sweet, syrup and food coloring as desired fishing comes into its industrial power. In fact, this is just another soda pop with very little alcohol in order to satisfy the less demanding throats.

Shared this one with my GF.
Pours a clear orange color with a small white head with almost no retention.
Very bubbly body also.
There is the sweet fruity aroma, although not really peach.
The taste is extremelly sweet and fruity. It also has the quality of cider or new made wine.
I didn't really like it, but my GF loved it.

2.55/5  rDev -26.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: To be honest, it looks an awful lot like a garden-variety Oktoberfest; superclear amber-yellow with a tissue-white head. Very respectable level of retention despite fairly large bubbles and no hops or yeast for support.

Smell: Plenty of peach liqueur along with a surprising and welcome touch of lambic funk - reminiscent of gueuze, with a Band-Aidy phenolic quality. Sweet and very peachy through and through, with a white wine quality and a sugary character reminiscent of peach candy or even artificially-flavored strawberry milk.

Taste: Sweeet! Argh... I thought this one would be sweet, but not this sweet. This is like drinking apple juice, with a spoonful of the "light syrup" from a can of peaches stirred in for good measure. A light lemony acidity is the only thing working to offset it... and it isn't enough. I expected sweet from Lindemans, but the Cassis, Framboise, and Kriek aren't anywhere near as syrupy and one-dimensional as this!

Mouthfeel: Surprisingly clean and dry, especially in the finish. Lip-smacking and smooth, with airy carbonation... but unfortunately, it doesn't do much to lighten the heavy sugar load.

Drinkability: For what it is, this is pretty drinkable. It tastes good, like soda. But it is definitely not worth the price, and definitely not something I would want more than a bottle of. Tip: have it with a sweet, fruit-and-cream type dessert. It will offset the overt sweet fruit flavors in the beer and draw out the tart, funky lambic tones - improving its drinkability dramatically.

I accidentally ordered this beer at the Only Cafe thinking it was the same beer I'd enjoyed on my first night in Belgium. Sadly that was Lindemans Peche, not Lindemans Pecheresse. The difference seems to be more or less limited to a reduction in ABV and an increase in sugar. In fact, it almost tastes like the Peche with a greater ratio of unfermented sugars.

For the record, it pours a rich gold with orange highlights and a white frothy head that left some sticky lace. Sweet peachy aroma combines with sugar, but still smells okay. Peach flavour seems natural, but is overpowered by sweetness. A slight sourness isn't enough to provide balance, and there's very little 'beer' flavour to this drink. Sticky body with a low carbonation.

Obviously far from the traditional lambic, and far too sweet to be quenching. I actually enjoy Lindemans sweeter more commercial beers, but this one is taking it a little too far even for me!

You can look at this beer as a pretty poor lambic or a very good alcopop. It is VERY sweet, although having some lambic character, flavour and sourness.

2.85/5  rDev -18.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

37.5 cl Green bottle, poured into a large 'Corsendonk' stemmed tulip glass.

Golden threat marmalade colour with a pure white head on top.

The lambic sour smell was there, but the peach sweetness was also there in equal measure, so you had a weird mix of vinegarous sourness and an incredible sickly sweetness from the fruit.

The sweetness in the taste was overpowering at first, sickly and coying. There was a souring towards the end of the aftertaste, but this is one sweet beer.

2.5% ABV, I'll not be having another, but glad i tried it.

A - Has a light white loose thin head. Light quickly falling lacing. Clear, slightly rose golden color body. Bottle is great, a beautiful 20s Parisian style nude.

S - wow. It's peach. A very peachy smell. Like cobbler and shampoo.

T - too sweet not much but peach. Sadly this beer is less lambic and more wine cooler. There is complexity but only in the kinds of peaches. Hand soap. Shampoo. Wine. Fresh cut. All peachy.

M - smooth silky.

D - not an unpleasant fruit beer, but lacks complexity.

A 375ml green bottle (half-champagne) with a BB of July 2012. I've been sitting on this for a while; picked up from a supermarket on a trip to Belgium in October 2010. Love the art nouveau decoration on the label. Hope it's still OK....

Poured into a straight pint glass (I don't have a flute). A clear orange-amber colour with medium carbonation and a hint of floating sediment. Forms a decent head of white foam that hangs around for a few minutes before dissipating. Aroma of dry peach with a distinctive mustiness and a sour twang. Slightly sweet, with hints of vinegar, brie and a fruity tartness.

Tastes of sweet peaches with a dry, musty finish. Notes of sugar, tart fruit, faint green apples and a hint of tangy vinegar. Quite dry upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is light and sharp, though a bit thin. Lightly astringent. Aftertaste of sweet & sour peach.

Lindemans is known for making very sweet commercial lambic (ie. not the good stuff). This isn't actually as sweet as some others that I've tried, but I'm not sure if that's simply due to age. It has a mildly oxidised mustiness that suggests it's been left a bit too long - but as it's a lambic it's hard to tell to what extent this may be the case. At any rate, it's OK but no masterpiece. Too sweet and one-dimensional; oude lambics blow this out of the water. Drinkable if taken on it's own terms. Try it once.

S: Peaches, peaches and peaches.

T: YUCK! Like peach perfume. Unnatural tasting. Very sweet. Poured it away after a few swigs.

O: One for the ladies.

A orange beer with a thin head that looks more like a lemonade.

Smell is sweet and has distinct peach notes.

Taste is sweet and syrupy. A strong peach taste that isn't overly artificial, but because of the sweetness, it tends to fake. This beer drinks like a lemonade. Very low bitterness. I expected to find a bit of funk, but it is not. Not too horrible though.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Pours a medium metallic gold colour with very mild haze. Steady bead of carbonation with minimal snowy head. Lace is OK, but a bit small. Decent lambic look but nothing special to report.

Smells very fruity, yeah peachy I guess, with a good nod to over-ripeness. Very sweet with just a hint of tartness. Lots of peach and a bit of pear. Fruity, not very lambicky.

Taste is surprisingly full. Lots of peach flavour coming through, again with that pear edge. Very sweet with a natural fruit flavour, quite juicy but a slight carbonation tingle. Certainly nothing particularly beer-like or alcoholic here, but there's a very decent feel and body to such a low ABV. Otherwise, nothing really to comment on, especially as beer.

If you want a beer that tastes like peach juice, this is the one for you! But seriously, grab an IPA instead. Or a Cantillon.

250ml bottle poured in an ordinary glass.

Let's be honest: Good experience drinking a beer made with peaches. That's all about this beer. In the end, it's too sweet and carbonated at the same time giving the impression of a champagne. A Faro would be a better option, if you ask me...

A: Pours a golden to orange color. Clear. Big aired head is formed
S: Sweet. Pure peaches
T: Too sweet. Syrupy. Peaches and orange peel. A bit of Lambic sourness (at least)
M: Extremely light body. Extremely carbonated
D: Drinkable as a juice of peaches should be ;)

A - A clear pale shade of apricot under a quick wispy finger of head.

S - Musty leather, peaches.

T - Sweet caramelised peaches. No trace of the 2.5% alcohol. Not much sourness. Refreshing.

M - Thin, yet has a syrupy quality. High carbonation.

O - The lack of sourness is probably not a good thing for a lambic, but the sweet peach flavour is agreeable. Nice, summery thirst quencher.

Bottle to Lindemans Framboise 25cl flute
Best by: 02-09-2013

Enjoyed at Palais des Bières while visiting Geneva, Switzerland.

A: Clear golden hue. Single (pure white with a few bubbles) fingernail head on gentle pour.

S: Peach fuzz and peach schnapps. Hint of tangerine. More fresh, ripe peaches.

T: Mild peach flavor start to finish with a hint of citrus coming thru towards mid-palate. Not too sweet, but just right.

M: Light body with medium carbonation.

O: Peach purée and that's about it. Almost boring, but I think it might have something to do with the fact this beer is only 2.50% ABV - this is almost a NA beer in my mind. Also, there is no sourness; however, I love peaches so this is the only saving grace here.
