A- 1 finger of bright white head atop a clear golden body. Nice lace left behind. It looks very inviting.

S- Funky farmhouse smell and sour peaches.

T- Sweet peaches that starts to turn slightly tart towards the end. Peach taste lingers for awhile. This is all about the peaches, you can't really pick up anything else.

M- A fairly full body, almost syrupy. Carbonation is zippy, but it remains smooth.

D- The peach flavors are quite strong, the sweetness can become a little cloying near the end which limits me to just this one bottle.

*Aged over 2 years at room temperature

It pours a pumpkin orange, not hazy but not crystal clear. An aggressive pour into my tulip yielded a modest head. It quickly fades, but leaves a constant film around the edges.

The nose has a nice pungent sourness. The peach flavor is aggressive, and has qualities of ripe, overripe, and candied peaches. Fresh floral tones, soft yeast, and just a hint of flaky crackers from the malt backbone make up a pleasant aroma.

Right off the bat, the sweet and sour flavors engage in combat. Behind the peach is a solid floral grassy flavor impressive for a two year old beer. It finishes slightly dry and exceptionally clean.

The mouthfeel is right on for me. The body is approaching full with a syrupy feel. The carbonation is very modest but adds the fuzz around the edges that somehow seems appropriate for a peach beer. All the while my mouth goes into pucker mode upon every sip.

A - Poured out a clear, yellow color with hints of pink and orange. It had a fizzy, small, white head that left no lace.

S - It smelled of peach and some subtle spice.

T - It tasted very sweet and of real peaches.

M - A champagne-like mouthfeel, sparkling, crisp and sharp. A very light bodied beer. Almost like drinking a lemonade or punch.

D - This is a pretty good fruit lambic. I prefer peach flavored beers to most others.

I have never been a big fan of those "fruity" beers. They often tend to have an artificail taste that isn't too pleasing to me. But every once in a while there are A couple I find that I like. Most of the time they are made by Lindeman's.
Though I'm not a fan of peaches (too much time in Georgia when I was in the Army), I really enjoyed this beer. It transends everything a fruit beer should be.
Pouring a cloudy orange colour with a thich off-white head, I was assured that I had a quality beer on my hands.
The aroma is strongly of peaches. There is nothing else to be noted, but then, nothing else is neded.
The taste is very peachy. Sweet as hell with a slight hint of tartness.
A very good beer well worthy of a strong passing mark.

Appearance- Nearly peach color with a small head.

Smell- The inside and outside of a peach and nothing more. When I say the outside I mean the fuzzy skin- which I think has a distinctive smell vs. the juice. Pleasant and simple.

Taste- Honestly, I can't discern anything except peach. All the subtleties of a peach are present however. Pretty delicious and even better I'd suspect if you really like peaches.

Mouthfeel- At times syrupy, but mostly light. Finish is syrupy. Carbonation is less than the the framboise.

Drinkability- Like drinking peach concentrate... so very drinkable just like all the other Lindemans lambics.

Three law students drank this beer prior to attending class, and it is the only thing that has gotten us through thus far.

If you like ciders or hefewiesens even, it is definitely the way to go. Great for those who don't like beer.

Good times had by all!

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.

Deep Amber color and nice fluffy, if fastly fading head. The lace is clinging and sticky. Earthy cave-like and peach aroma with a hint of floral hops. Medium malt body and ample lemony hops. Definitely peaches. And not peach extract! Sweet and citrus bitterness. Caramel Notes. Earthy. Very Complex!
