4/5  rDev +1%
look: 2.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 335ml bottle (bottled 21Nov14) into a sniffer.
LOOK: Pours with a half finger's worth of foam that halves its size within 30 seconds. Has an extremely murky orange color. Bubbles are so scarce that I can almost count them as they rise. Lacing is minimum. SMELL: Has strong aromas of sweet peaches that combine with mild apple juice aromas and a hint of sweet barley, funky yeast, and wheat.
TASTE: Initial taste is extremely sweet with strong peach and apple juice flavors (love it!). Mild funky yeast flavors enter immediately after. To finish off this symphony of sweet and funk, a touch of wheat, barley, and sour yeast enter as all previous flavors continue to press on.
FEEL: Light-bodied and somewhat smooth, yet clings to back of the throat. Has subtle carbonation with a dry, slightly tart finish.
NOTE: I recommend this to any hard cider lover or moscato fan. (885 characters)

This is very good, but very sweet. It's like a desert beer. I split one of these with my wife and not sure I could handle anymore due to the sweetness. If you like sweet tasting beers though and especially peach than this is the best/lambic for you (248 characters)

I'm just not really a fan of this beer. If you're looking for a gateway beer to bring someone to the world of sours, I guess it could be an option. But I've never found much complexity to this at all. Just really, really sweet peach juice. Very overwhelming in more than 2 oz. quantities. (288 characters)

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 4/4/2014. Pours lightly cloudy deep golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big juicy/tart peach, mango, pear, apple, green grape, honey, candi sugar, hay, grass, light funk, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of peaches, fruity/earthy yeast, and pale malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of big juicy/tart peach, mango, pear, apple, green grape, honey, candi sugar, hay, grass, light funk, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate fruity tartness and light yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of peach, mango, pear, apple, green grape, honey, candi sugar, hay, grass, light funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice robustness and complexity of peaches, fruity/earthy yeast, and pale malt sweetness; with a great malt/tartness balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth and fairly slick/acidic mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 2.5%. Overall this is an excellent sweetened fruit lambic. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of peaches, fruity/earthy yeast, and pale malt sweetness; and very smooth to drink with the low ABV and balanced tartness. A very enjoyable offering. (1,556 characters)

Hey, so far I have thought Lindemans has always been under rated. I really enjoyed this one. Lots of peach taste and aroma. Slightly tart. Good Lambic. (151 characters)

I admittedly do not have much experience with lambics. I found it cloyingly sweet, like I was drinking a sugary peach drink. The finish is dry and the feel is tart, but beyond that, I could not get much beyond the sweetness. Perhaps I would have liked to see a higher ABV and this more alcohol content in order to balance it out. (329 characters)

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

Looks very much like fresh juice, especially apple. Nice miniscule carbonation bubbles that have packed their bags and are headed to the top. Very light head and minor, spotty lacing. Aroma is full of overripe peaches and some apple juice. Taste is similar to aroma, with overripe peaches being the star and a back of apple juice and a touch of yeastiness. ABV is 2.50 which makes this very sessionable. A little to sweet and no where enough tartness for this to be called a lambic, IMHO. .Oversweet, but still a nice sipper !! (527 characters)

What to drink when you really want something that is more like soda pop than beer? I guess it would be Lindemans Peche. Nose - peach. Taste - peach soda. I suppose in a blind taste test with this and peach soda, I would notice some more differences. Nice sour balance to the sweet, but very little in the way of complexity. Tasty? Yes. This is probably my wife's favorite "beer." It just seems to be a one-trick sweet peach pony.
Edit - Since it is my wife's favorite beer, I've ended up having this several more times. Bottom line, the notes above are still spot on, but I can't argue that this is damn tasty. I've bumped up my score accordingly. It is easy to poo-poo Lindemans, but frankly, this stuff is yummy. (726 characters)

look: 4.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance – A very clear light golden color with a very nice head and great lacing.

Smell – Very peachy. Though I love the other Lindemans lambics, this is just a little too peachy for me.

Taste – A sweet peach flavor, that is pretty good. But borderline too peachy for my liking.

Mouthfeel – Kind of a fine champagne feel (not taste). Mouthfeel is very nice.

Drinkability – Lindemans makes some of my favorite Lambics. But I like their other flavors better. (477 characters)

DATE TASTED: February 14, 2015... GLASSWARE: Samuel Adams Infinium flute... OCCASION: Valentine’s Day drinking with the most champagne-like of beers... APPEARANCE: light body of a wheat ale or cider, with subtle effervescence and slightly hazy; fizzy white head holds steady to a half-inch of significantly creamy, clouding to-finger smear; ... AROMA: immediate peach, a basket in each nostril, with secondary apple and yeasty funk not polluting the overall experience... PALATE: soft as flower petals; dry at its end, with some bubbly flourish; creamy, reasonably bodied for a lambic...TASTE: sweet and strong peach, with a metallic, earthy base that gives the experience backbone; easily sippable, with hints of orange peel., mango and tartness..OVERALL: a perfect compliment to the levity of the day; specialized flavor for special occasions--slightly pricey but enjoyable... (880 characters)

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Enjoyed on tap at Beer Revolution in Calgary. Arrived in a standard pint glass, a light golden amber with two fingers of quick-breaking soapy white head.

Aroma is fruity and moderately tart ... Peaches or apricots, green grapes, a little mango. Very slight sour funk, like old cork and musty basement. Taste is almost identical to that of a sour peach gummy candy. Again, there is a mild brett funk if one pays attention. Fortunately, tart enough to avoid becoming cloying. Light body and carbonation. Minimal bitterness. A hint of dry wheat spice in the finish. Really though, the candy peach flavor eclipses much of the rest.

If you want to get an unsuspecting friend to drink and actually enjoy a lambic, this is one approach you could take. Hopefully said friend likes peaches. Personally, not a huge gratuitous fruit beer drinker but this one was pleasing enough. (871 characters)

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12oz. bottle. Corked and capped.

Look: A slightly aggressive pour yielded a half finger of head. Poured into a snifter, although next time I drink this beer I think I will use a flute. Soapy head with large bubbles, dissipated within 2 minutes. Golden to slightly amber color when held up to the light. Bubbles continue to stream up throughout the session. Great lacing. Good looking beer.

Smell: Smell is champagne-like. Very fruity and refreshing. Lots of peach and green grapes. It's a very sweet smelling beer.

Taste: Leads off with a fruity sweetness. Lots of peach and green grapes in the taste as well. The back end of this beer hits you with a sourness, but it's not overpowering. Delicious!

Feel: The beer is very bubbly. Not quite champagne bubble, but bubbly nonetheless. It is a very light beer to drink.

Overall: I'm digging this beer. It's not something I would normally go for, but I will definitely be buying this again. It would be perfect for a spring picnic with your significant other. Great Stuff! (1,070 characters)

December 31, 2014

12 oz bottle, snifter

A – Pours a reddish-pink tinted light-to-medium gold, with about an inch of foamy white head that dissipates almost immediately. High clarity.

S – Very strong peach aroma, like fresh cut peaches, very organic and not artificial-smelling. Only the slightest indication of any funk or Brett character, but a mild tartness, creaminess from the fruit. No hop aroma.

T – Very sweet peach, but not at all cloying. Very little Brett character, though it can be found if you’re looking for it. Again, tastes like real peach and not artificial at all. Fruit is the star without being overwhelming. No hop flavor.

M – Fairly light body and low carbonation, with no bitterness at all. No dryness at any point, sweet from start to finish.

O – Seems like a much more restrained use of fruit sweetness with this beer than with other fruit variants of lambic, and tastes very natural. This would be an excellent dessert beer. (976 characters)

3.95/5  rDev -0.3%

Poured a dark golden color with a surprising amount of bubble. Nice burst of peach aroma at opening and pour.

Taste is a slightly sour peach, more tang than the pecheresse, but still on the sweet side.

Mouthfeel is medium, with a good bit of carbonation, some syrupy feel, but the carbonation and the fruit balance it out.

I am going to try to serve this at Thanksgiving dinner as an option to wine…will see what happens. (430 characters)

Sampled earlier tonight on 6/26/14. Comes in a heavy 355 ml (12 ounce) bottle that has both the metal crown top and a cork. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to their flute glass that came in a 2-pack around last Christmas (Apple & Raspberry which are long gone.) :)

Pours a pretty golden color with a thin white head with some sediment left in the bottom of the bottle. Really no lacing to speak of. The aroma is of peaches with some yeast. The taste has much more flavor than the aroma and besides the peach there is a hint or tangerine and orange in there as well. Very smooth and quite tasty actually. Good drink and goes down so easy! (674 characters)

Wow, I really don't like this beer. It smells like peach squash (peach concentrated juice): synthetically fruity and artificially sweet. Tastes the same way. Sickly and way too much. It tastes like the fruit juice concentrate you buy and then dilute with water, except here whoever's mixing the drinks got the ratio all wrong and didn't put in enough water. I'd strongly recommend avoiding this. (395 characters)

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

A: Pours a translucent golden with a white head.

S: Peach, sweet nectary fruits and faint notes of funky Belgian yeast in the nose.

T: Sweet peach, orange, tangerine, no funk, a slight, citric tartness, but it's quite uncharacteristic of a lambic.

M: Medium bodied and quite smooth.

O: Overall a very pleasant drinking beer, but perhaps more akin in taste to a sweet cider. Recommended if you like sweet fruity beers. (422 characters)

12 oz. bottle poured into a glass.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy orange with a pillowy white head. This was a pain to open because of the cork. Darn Euros.

Aroma: Peaches - lots and lots of peaches. And more peaches.

Taste: Tastes like peaches, unsurprisingly. It also has some syrupiness, almost like soda. Very sweet. Some sourness on the finish.

Mouthfeel: It's very soda-like in body. That combined with the low alcohol makes it feel very much like a soft drink.

Overall: Solid dessert beer. If you like peach cobbler, this is basically peach cobbler and a peach soda plus some unnoticeable alcohol. (605 characters)

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Visual: The beer was a cloudy, glowing, autumn orange with hint of brown. It had a foamy white head that cleared rather quickly. There was some lacing.

Aroma: The beer smelled of ripe, sweet peaches, honey, apple, and dried apricots. It was also slightly floral.

Taste: The taste was great--it had pleasant, strong notes of peaches and tree fruits. It was refreshingly sweet, and easy to drink.

Mouthfeel: I felt that it had a light mouthfeel due to the fruity flavors and carbonation, but also a slightly full mouthfeel as well due to it's sweet finish. It had low-medium carbonation.

Overall: I really enjoyed this beer. It was refreshing and very easy to drink due to its sweetness. It reminded me of summer, and I thought that it would pair well with a lot of different foods. (787 characters)

This fruit based beer is pleasantly good, has great small, no edge, and no after taste. It pours golden, with a sparkling haze, one finger sized head, and medium amount of carbonation. It goes down light, not filling, and doesn't leave the mouth dry. It has a sugary and peach taste, with little to no hops/malt taste. Very little alcohol, good for starting the night out... (374 characters)

From Platinum. BB Jun 2015

A - fizzy fruit juice-like, one finger head. Little lace, nice film.

S - peach puree.

T - peaches, sweet, apples. The sweetness of the peach (puree) is offset - a little - by a crisp apple taste. Overall sweet on the palate.

M - nice, lively.

O - I am drinking this on a stinking hot night and it is good because it is refreshing, but bad because it is a ten dollar plus beer of 2.5% which goes down like essentially soft drink. It is NOT a sour lambic to me, whilst there is a moderate crisp note to the taste it is essentially a sweet beer. Not to be repeated. (594 characters)

Poured from bottle into tulip glass

A- Hazy with a peach-like hue. Pure white head that diminished quickly after pouring. Light bubbles rolling up side of glass.

S- Peach right away with some candied fruit and tartness to finish.

T- Sweet and tart, almost like a sparkling cider. High carbonation becomes apparent immediately. Pleasant taste of fresh peaches.

M- Sour, carbonation, refreshing

O- I would definitely buy it again, it is a perfect drink for that hot summer afternoon. I'd like it a bit colder than it was during my tasting. (542 characters)

Poured from bottle into a tulip glass

Appearance –The beer pours a crystal clear light amber color with a peach like hue, as it is tinted with colors of orange and a bit of red. Upon pouring there is one finger of fizzy pure white head and tons of champagne like carbonation bubbles seen streaming up through the brew. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a bit of fizzy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is big and sweet with tons of fruity peach aromas and lots of Belgian candied sugar smells. Along with these aromas are some other lighter fruit aromas of apricot and apple as well as a hint of a sour and funky smell.

Taste – The taste begins with a huge sweet taste of peach, candied sugar, and apricot. As the taste advances the peach grows even stronger in flavor, really taking on the bulk of the sweetness of the brew. A lighter level of tartness and a hint of a grassy and herbal flavor develop more toward the end. In the end a massively sweet peach juice flavor, with just hints of a grass and tartness are left on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is quite high consisting of tons of tiny little carbonation bubbles. The thin body and prickly carbonation are fantastic for the sweet peach and lightly tart flavors of the beer, making this beer very refreshing and enjoyable.

Overall – While very-very sweet, the peach flavor is quite authentic and really is not all the cloying. With the tart and light grass flavors as well as the fantastic mouthfeel, the flavors end up making for a rather refreshing peach flavored sweet lambic. (1,676 characters)

Appearance - Nice, clean, and light appearing amber Lambic. Very inviting, and moderately carbonated.

Smell - Wow. Sweet, clean, peachy, and fruity.

Taste - Tastes like drinking a peach soda with a slight ale flavor. Surprisingly nice and delicious

Mouthfeel - Nice and refreshing on the palate. Light and smooth.

Overall - Great Lambic, very refreshing and surprising that your are drinking and alcoholic beverage until it hits you. My favorite Lambic. These goes down quick and smooth. (493 characters)

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. (341 characters)
