Served from a 750 ml bottle purchased a few days ago at World Market in Mentor on the suggestion of my wife. No freshness date observed.

A Thick, creamy, meringue like head with a nice, cloudy but pretty clear peach colored body with carbonation visible. Head is impressive and stayed around for 2 minutes. I did make an effort to get a head with the pour too.

S Peachy Lindemans with a pleasing sweet smell but some bitterness, grainyness observed in the background. It is not 100% peach.

T Tastes like candy. A nice, not overwhelming peachy sweetness. It is a lot like peach schnapps without the kick of alcohol. A pleasant fruit beer. There is a nice sweet aftertaste that lingers.

M Less chunky than the Fraimbose and less carbonation than that as well. This is a thinner beer than its more popular counterpart.

D Great. I could easily drink this whole bottle. It is like slightly alcoholic peach juice or a low alchohol peach schnapps.

Notes: It could have been really bad (peach and beer?) but it is very pleasant. It should be popular with those enjoying fruit beers.

Lindemans Pêche has a yellow colour and a head that is about one finger high. Despite the fact that it's not especially carbonated, the head lasts. The smell is strong and fruity. It smelled of banana to me. The taste is very sweet with banana ester. It tastes like a cider to me, or fruit juice. The peach is especially noticeable in the afteretaste. This beer is thin like cider in your mouth, like slightly carbonated water. This beer was very nice but the sweetness was slightly overpowering after more than one glass.

*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.

WOW. This is one strange brew. I am not a fan of lambics but I take the brothers advice, and my own, and I "respect' beer. So, to achieve the taste of this beer, is a 'respectful' feat in it's own right. Super peachy, IMO-Not like any beer out there.

A- Color actually looks like a golden pale ale. Small, sporatic bubbles, almost champaigny. White small head. Quick head retention.

S- Peach bomb. Yeast excrement (the fruity kind).

D- Flavor wise: Good Consistency wise: Slow drinker. I would not want to drink more than one of these in a night.

Notes: I recommend that any beer enthusiast try a lambic at least once and this is a good one to try.

Translucent amber-straw color with virtually no head but some active carbonation. Peach notes are light and fresh and very appealing. As with other Lindemans offerings, the fruit and grain smells complement each other and meld nicely--a distinct difference from the tacky fruit beers on the market. Taste is unexpectedly sweet at the start, but the subtle tartness leaves no doubt that you're tasting genuine peaches. Grains are muted until the end, and even then the maltiness is quite subtle. Mouthfeel is very pleasant despite the sweetness; it is more clean than syrupy. This is another fine Lindemans lambic, but one is enough at a sitting.

Appearance. Nice glowing amber-orange. Clear with a half finger white head leaving a little chunky lacing.

Smell. Over-ripe peaches in a horse barn. Just a little alcohol.

Taste. Sweet and tart peaches dominate. A little white vinegar and a hint of funk and wood. Nice.

Mouthfeel. Medium body with some nice prickly medium carbonation.

Drinkability. A great drinker. Quite surprising for such a sweet lambic.

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.

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!

Poured from a bottle into a flute, the beer is a bright, orange-gold coloring with steady carbonation and a frothy, bubbly, bright white head. Aromas of rich, hearty peach, with an effervescent tartness that borders on sour. The nose is light enough that it avoids being overpowering like some Lambics. Flavors of subtle roast with a peach flavor that honestly tastes like fresh pureed peaches. Very authentic and balanced. Wow. Smooth bodied, light, and crisp, making it very easy to drink. The aftertaste is subtle rich and sweet peach, with a slight linger after the clean, smooth finish. Very easy to drink, and very tasty.

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!

Pours a real pretty murky orange color with a nice frothy white head. Smells like straight up peach with sour funk in the background.

This is a sipper for sure. Man this thing is sweet. But the sweetness tastes great to me. There again, the peaches dominate. It has a nice sour twang too.

Overall, a nice beer. More of a desert type beer. The sweetness makes this one a sipper. And I don't imagine you could drink more than one (maybe two) glasses in a sitting.

Maybe the better of the Lindemans fruit beers. Still very sweet with a mild, but very sweet peach / apple flavor. Tart to offset sweetness. Certainly an after-dinner drink. Sweet to an almost cloying sense. Lightly syrupy and velvety texture with a sugar-sweet finish and lingering. Not overly strong as with the Framboise. Quite similar to the Pomme, but with a richer fruit flavor and texture. Solidly cider-ey but with a serious beer undertone. Enjoyable, but only on occations. No keg-stands for me.

Poured a orange color that was slightly hazed. Smelled of fresh peaches, sweet malts, and some caramel. Taste of fresh peaches and sweet malt, and some champagne flavor almost like a sparkling peach beverage. Very flavorful. Mouthfeel very light almost like champagne. Beer snobs may knock a good lambic such as this but they are being too purest and need to remember that beer is open to interpretation. Very drinkable and a highly memorable beer.

It poured a hazy orange golden yellow with a minimal amout of foam. The smell was of citrus fruit, not a strong peach smell, but, it reminded me of a sparkling cider. Tasting it was like drinking a sparkling cider but not as sweet. I could taste the peach, but not this beer was not overpowering. Nice sweet/tart flavor and finish in the mouth, with a pleasant after taste!
