This brew poured out as a clear looking light orange color. The head fizzles away and leaves no lacing. The smell of the beer has a sweet and slightly tart aroma to it. The taste of this brew is much like wine to me. There is a sweet dessert like quality to this brew also. The mouthfeel is light and easy going. Overall I found this brew to be pretty good overall. It's not my favorite from this brewery but still not bad.

355ml corked capped and foiled bottle. Poured into a pint glass. Slightly hazy light amber with a bubbly thin head that soon disappeared.

Smelled of musty fruit with some sour notes. Milt fruity flavour. Somewhat undifferentiated. Mildly tart at the end with a sweet finish.

Medium body. The carbonation balances the taste well. Not bad overall. Not one of Lindemans stronger offerings. Overly sweet for me, although some might prefer it. Kind of a turned down fruit lambic with turned up sweetness.

A - The color is . . . peach. Hmmm, that's a bit surprising. Hazy as well. The head is small and dissipates quickly leaving a bit of lacing behind.

S - Peaches! Fresh peach odor. I really didn't expect this much peach. It's a good thing I like peaches! There is a bit of faint malt on the nose as well, but mostly peach.

T - Peaches! I really like peaches! It has a strong peach foretaste, reminds me of a peach jolly rancher a bit more than a fresh peach. The sweet peach flavor is accompanied by a strong tartness that follows through to the aftertaste - a peach tart, naturally. The aftertaste has a bit of more traditional malt character in it.

M - Highly carbonated and thin. Refreshing though.

D - Very, very drinkable. It is like a peach soda, without such a cloying sugar presence (sugar IS present though). Definitely a dessert beer, a light dessert of course, like fruit sorbet, not a tiramisu. This is delicious, if you like peaches, I recommend this. If you dislike peaches, then you would be an idiot to look for it.

Lindemans Peche pours a color somewhere near burnt amber and copper with a decent amount of clarity, save for a bit of haze in the middle of the glass. The head pillows up quite large; eggshell in color and crackling as it quickly recedes to a mere skin that blankets the peach brew.

I've gotta say, the aroma of this one is much funkier than all of the other Lindemans fruit lambics that I've tried. Huge rounds of yeast, cork, must, damp cellar, barnyard, and just overall funk invade the nostrils with a surprising poignancy. The peaches come through pretty strong as well; juicy, tart peaches and apples skins mix well with the funk.

Some underlying sweet malt and soft wheat outline the rougher edges of the aromatic profile and balance things out just a bit more. I'm pretty excited to finally bring this one to my lips, as I love peaches, and this definitely has the best nose of all the Lindemans lambics. The funk really surprised me, and I can't wait to finally try it.

Unfortunately, I'm a bit let down by the flavor. The strongest thing I taste is not the funk of the yeast or the tart of the peach - it's a residual-like, sugary sweetness that immediately breaches your palate and confiscates all other flavors. It still tastes like peaches, but sugar-coated, exceedingly-sweet peaches, rather than tart and sour peaches, which is kind of what I was hoping for.

I guess there's a light tartness at the start, but it's VERY light and gets quickly overtaken by the sweetness. Funk is much less noticeable, although some vinous oak and tannin notes pop out that weren't relevant on the nose - so that's certainly a plus. The aftertaste is full of sweet peaches and a touch of oak. I really wish the funk was as heavy on the palate as it was in the aroma, but sadly - it is not. Crisp mouth feel, dry, heavy carbonation.

If this thing tasted closer to how it smelled, it would have been awesome. A tart, funk peach-fest, but by aroma only. The taste lead on to a much sweeter, sugary style of peaches that still tasted fine, but could easily wear down a palate (or even a sweet tooth). More funk, more tart, and less sweet is the key. For some strange reason, my nose was pleased but my taste buds were not.

A - This beer pours a bright golden peach color, with a big fluffy 2-finger white head on it. The head left some good lacing on the glass as it fell.

S - It smells of peaches and belgian yeast. There is some sourness and a touch of funk, as well as a bit of green apple.

T - There is a big peach flavor explosion here. It is a very sweet beer, but there is some good sourness that cuts it. It has a pretty mellow finish on it.

M - It has a medium body and good carbonation. There is a bit of a puckering sourness that comes in before the finish. It goes down pretty smooth and is refreshing.

D - I think this has pretty good drinkability. It is a good beer, but the sweetness is getting to me a little. Keep in mind this is my first lambic, so I'm not quite used to this style of beer yet. Overall, I liked it. I definitely think I need to keep getting more fimiliar with this style and understand it more. My girlfriend loved this one though. I recommend trying it out.

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

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass. Had many of these time for a review.

Small white head that falls quickly. Simple orange amber body, with a cloudy body. Some nice uprising carbonation occasionaly, pin head sized, some sticking to the glass. Not much of a collar at all, put top puck leaves a simple small lace in the middle. Looks nice.

Smell is a candied peach. Sticky, with Belgian style malt/yeast whatever that thing is I find so often on Belgian brews. Candied sweet, fun, simple... nice.

Extreme sweet peach taste, with a hint of tart on the finish. Mouthfeel of sweet kool aid quailty. Sticky, somewhat syrupy texture, which is not neccesarily a bad thing, but not a preference for myself.

Overall though easy drinking, fun simple, super easy light abv, candy like beer. Truly a peach in a glass dream lovers beer.

Pours a lightly hazy pale yellow with a small white head. In the aroma, sugary, tart peach skin. In the taste, quite sugary and small tartness of peach skin. A small tart bite, but mainly smooth and medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry tart peach skin in the aftertaste. Kind of like a gummy peach ring, and it is line smell, taste, and aftertaste all the way through.

12 ounce bottle with multiple layers of protection (corked, capped, cap and neck covered with golden foil), poured into a tulip yields a bright sunny-orange body topped with two fingers of white foam that diminishes to a ring and leaves patches of lacing.

Smell is chemically perfumey and peachy with a note of rice vinegar, cider and a whiff of the muddy crawlspace under a moldy leather-walled hut. A little scary at first, but it grows on me.

Sweet and peachy with a nice tanginess and that same wonderfully drinkable funk that mostly vanishes either as the drink warms, or as my palate finally accepts that it's not sampling some weird toxin....

Nice and crisp, tingly, good carbonation.

Poured from 12oz bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: slightly hazy light cidery gold with a finger of dense white foam. Quite nice.

Smell: tart, almost spicy aroma with the distinct smell of peach. It's not quite as sweet-smelling as some of the other Lindemans lambics. Nice.

Taste: tart, a little sweet and peachy. This is really quite tasty, if heavy on the peach. The peach is pretty natural tasting and not candy-like, which I appreciate. The aftertaste is a little dusty or metallic-tasting; it's not off-putting but I could do without it. Still quite good.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied with a little carbonation. Not bad.

Drinkability: this is one tasty beer, but it is among my least favorite of the Lindemans lambic flavors. I'd definitely drink it again, but not everyday.

Tried this at Gigs in London. Poured a clear orange/pinkish colour, just like a peach. This one tasted like a jolly rancher as well, with a bit more apple coming through then peach in the flavour. Its pretty crazy how much fruit flavour they got in this though. Interesting beer.

This beer appeared an apricot orange with a medium/small white head.

The smell had sweet aromas of peach and a slight bit of malt. The taste was sweet, fruity, and tart. There was a hint of malt flavor, but it was buried beneath the sweetness. Fruit flavors of peach dominated here. The consistency was rich and sweet, and the carbonation was medium.

This was a tasty desert beer. I'm not an expert on lambics, so it was hard to detect any flavors from the yeasts used. I found that many non-beer drinkers enjoyed this, but I found it to be a bit sweet for my taste as well as pricey in a lot of areas. Well brewed, nonetheless. Give it a try!

I have had this beer several times at Tap Works in OKC and also poured from bottle at home. Both are pleasing but it is much better on tap.
For this review I am reviewing poured from a bottle into a Pint glass.

A- Pale Orange, slightly cloudy. With a perfect poor it gives a 1 finger off white head that quickly dissipates with slight lacing.

S- Peaches are the most prominent scent. Wet hay in the background, maybe some stale cardboard. A slight funk that smells really good with everything else.

T- Sweet peaches, Grass, Bitter almost lemony taste, and that funk that really makes me want to take another drink.

M- Over carbonated. Almost burns my mouth from the fizz. This is the only thing I wish was different.

O- Overall, I rate this beer at a 4.o. If the carbonation was a little lighter This would easily get a 4.5. I can't rate at a 5 because even though this is a great beer, it's not something that I can drink everyday. It's a once or twice a year drink.

The beer pours a clear yellow color with a white head. The aroma is strong peaches with some light tartness. The flavor is strong syrupy peaches with a little bit of tartness. Medium carbonation and medium mouthfeel. This has nothing in common with other Belgian lambics but as far as fruit beers go, this is a good one.

A- Clear and yellow/gold like sparkling white wine. Head is 2" into my Lindeman's glass leaving very thick lacing in sheets down the side.

S- Fresh peaches, cinnamon, vanilla and marshmallows. The only thing that throws me off a little bit is a slight soapy smell.

T- Light and sweet of fresh peaches, corn syrup, some floral undertones, and a citric sourness.

M- Medium and syrupy in the mouth with high carbonation.

D- Not my favorite of the Lindeman's offerings, but not bad at all. I think this one goes a little too sweet without throwing you the sourness to dry out the finish making the drinkability a little lower than the others.

Can you say Peach?

This beer pours a transparent (with slight haze) honey yellow color with a moderate to large head of moreate size bubbles. There is a lot of carbonation coming off- the head looks "ragged" (not as pretty) as some I've seen because of it. The aroma is peach soda like, with a rich, syrupy smell, including a slightly organic (wet earth, mossy) aroma hidden below the surface. The flavor is dominated by a very fruity soda-sweet with honey backflavor. I had a Peach Cobbler dessert the night before, and there were a lot of similarities in this beer. It's not really very beer-like- more cider/fruit juice (Hansen's) than beer. It's a nice change of pace to have, but I couldn't drink it often. Note: my girlfriend hates beer of all types, but she actually likes this stuff (and the Framboise too).

Pours well ... the colour of peach juice. light orangy with a hint of red. No real head to speak of, but it bubbles up like a nice sparkling wine. Aroma is very fruity, with just the slightest hint of a sour note. Taste is tart and of sweet peaches, almost in a canned peach sort of way. There is just a note of lambic sourness that creeps in and helps this from being cloying. Mouthfeel is good nicely carbonated which helps it from being too too sweet. Drinkability is a little above average. A bit too sweet. This would be a one and done apertif or dessert beer. Sweeter and less tart than the raspberry which lessens the drinkability

Cloudy body and healthy carbonation load leads to well supported head that laces rather nicely on the way down.

Peach, citrus in the nose with some sour notes as well.

Peaches really jab their point into the palate as it reaches every last taste bud. Sour middle twinges and seals the deal, only to finish with some peach sweetness that lingers for a bit.

Perfect beer to start a session or for an after dinner brew just to ease you back into the swing of things. Very easy to drink, keeps my interest throughout. Chicks may dig this brew as it has "some" wine cooler qualities although much more bitter.

Had this at Alisal Cellars in Solvang, CA USA.

A - Orangy gold in the glass with a decent ehad and amazing lacing.

S - Super over-the-top peach scent, from a mile away even after it sat for about 20 minutes.

T - This tastes like peach juice, not beer. A bit sour and ridiculously sweet. If I was rating juice the taste would get a 5.0.

M - Mid-full.

D - Drinkable only if you like soda, juice or cough syrup...all of which I love, but even MY mouth puckered up on this one.

This was my first Lambic and I don't think I was prepared, lol.

Typically lambic, a little hazy, effervescent and bubbly. Aroma is peachy and has that usual lambic musty note. Flavor is quite tasty, peach comes through well as does typical lambic malt flavors and that kinda old musty classic lambic flavor. I've enjoyed each of this brewery's lambics that I've tried so far, and this one is no exception.
