4.03/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Light/medium bodied, hazy apricot color like unfiltered cider, with a nice white head.

Aroma is mild, peaches with a tart earthy overtone.

The flavor is very definitely PEACH. It starts sweet but not quite like peach soda - more like a peach cobbler, as it is quickly followed by a very pleasant tartness and a yeasty/biscuity overtone, finishing slightly sour for a nice clean finish that leaves you wanting more. Definitely a desert ale, either stand alone or with an appropriate fruit dish.

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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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.

This lambic poured an orange gold color and the white head formed a ring around the edge of my glass that left little spots of laces. Smelled of a wonderful musky and dirty yeast with a little cranberry and syrupy peaches and a slight bit of mushroom. Tasted of huge buttery peaches and sweet cream with a slight sour snap to it. The wild yeast was present and blended delightfully into the fruit flavors livening up their sourness. Mouth feel was medium bodied and sticky with a light carbonation.

In a goblet, this beer forms a white surface lace. The body is a tawny, transparent yellow gold, when I try to describe it. My girlfriend simply says, "peach." The nose is 100% sweet peach, which smells great. The taste is sugary, intense peach. Simple, but good. The mouthfeel is viscous, with low carbonation. Could use more. This is a wonderful dessert beer, although the acid builds up if you have too much by yourself. Share a 12 oz bottle with at least one person!

The golden body, tending to amber, supports a very pale, almost white neck. The smell of peaches is dominant on other floral scents presents in the background.

The taste is loyal to the aroma, but now the sourness shows up. I don't notice any hop taste. This medium-body beer has an incredible ability to go through the palate without any notice - it's pretty interesting. Also, it seems to be a very good alternative for a champagne.

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.

Frothy, white head and clear. aroma has hints of herbs and grass, light yeast, peach (duh). Dry texture, with a very fizzy carbonation. Heavy sweet innitial flavor and finish. Peach is, of course, the dominant flavor, but it's not too overpowering. Very refreshing.

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!

I finally pulled this ber out of the ole closet to review after 2+ years. This was part of an experiment I have been doing to see if the Lindemans fruit beers gain a sour character as they age. Well it seems that not even two years will cut the sweetness. I'll get back to ya in 2007.

Appearance: Pours a clear Orangish Golden color with a dense half inch of head after a reserved pour. There are quite a few bubbles attached to the glass, and only a few rising to the top to maintain the head. The head stands for some time nonetheless. There are a few particles floating in a slow “suspended animation” like state not looking like they particularly want to go up or down. Decent lacing.

Aroma: The Peach is the most obvious part of the aroma, but there are also some pretty floral notes to this beer that I guess are from hops. The Peach is still so dominant after all this time, it’s pretty amazing.

Taste: It is very sweet the entire time. The Peaches come out to greet you early, and the aroma just leads into the taste. You have a flood of Peach pouring over you as you take this beer in. It just starts in the nose, and moves to your taste gradually. There is a slight sourness that starts to peek out somewhere in the middle to leave a slight prickly impression on the back of the tongue. Then it finishes dry and refreshing leaving you with a mouth full of Peaches.

Opinion: Golly gee, this beer still tastes like Kool-aid! I mean, don’t get me wrong…it is a wonderfully flavored beer. The Peach is just such a sweet and dominant force in the entire flavor profile that it completely obscures the fact that you are drinking the product of spontaneous fermentation at all. I would prefer it retain some of the “wild” characteristics. I have one more bottle of Peche. We'll see what a couple more years doe for it.

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Looks like apple cider with a thin white head. Mostly clear, little visible carbonation, and decent lacing.

S - A little sour from the yeast esters, sweet funk, ripe peaches, and dry wheat.

T - Very much sweet with a strong fermented peach flavor that is nice and juicy. Slight dryness/sour yeast at the end. Finishes tart with a full peach mouthfeel.

M/D - Champagne-like texture and carbonation. Semi-tart on the palate but a huge mouthfeel from all the carbonation and the peach flavor. Very light and refreshing and the low ABV makes it extremely drinkable.

Great morning beer!

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.

Pours clear golden peach color with a minimal dirty white head which quickly dissipated with no retention.

Smells of peaches, fresh and fermented. A bit of apple and yeast come through as well.

Tate is of fresh peach, crisp and clean. The flavor progresses towards a great tartness on the end.

Texture is fine, light bubbles tickle as I drink it, and it has a dry finish that makes for easy drinking.

Another great lambic. Enjoyable, light, easy to recommend to those who are interested.

DOA

Plenty of head, great peach coloured body. Full of character. Another Lindeman's product I'm tempted to mark as the highest rated fruit beer I've had. Good aroma, well present. A gritty, rippened fruit flavour. Flavour well developed, candy like taste - only authentic! Well suited for anyone's taste in my opinion

Apperance: Cloudy orange. Moderate head.

Smell: Tart peach smell. Kind of reminds me of a good champagne.

Taste: Sweet/tart peach flavors which fade away into a light hop taste.

Mouthfeel:Creamy and medium bodied.

Drinkability: Very yummy and easy to drink. I would love another.

Overall a very good Lambric, and it comes in an odd bottle cork and cap, how queer. A must try. Cheers.

This was a really sweet beer. Not as sweet as Lindemans Framboise. The color was a hazy watered down orangish color. The smell was that of fresh peaches. It was very clean smelling. The taste was also very clean with a mild peach taste and a slight sourness and acidic taste. A most enjoyable drink. Im not a big fan of the sweet drinks but this one isnt too sweet, and that makes it an agreeable dessert drink.

Poured from bottle into oversized wine glass (no flute at the moment).

A- Hazy straw-wheat, and tons of lively carbonation. No head retention, but a nice Saturn ring that leaves slippery lacing on the side of the glass.

S- PEACHES! Lots of fresh sweet peaches, a tiny pinch of citrus, very aromatic.

T- Palate follows the nose on this one. Sweet peaches with a sour finish. Not too many dimensions, not complex with taste but a solid lambic.

MF- Light medium body, TONS of carbonation that tickles the tongue. The taste really hangs around your mouth.

O- This is a very sweet/sour beer, and I mean very sweet. I can only handle one bottle of this due to that simple fact that it is just way to sweet for my taste. I still enjoyed it very much. This is not my everyday beer at all, but I could possibly see myself trying more lambics in the near future. I spent about 6 bucks for a 12 oz. bottle so if you are "experimenting" it is a just above fair price imo. Still good in my book though.

In honor of my wife being pregnant and unable to drink, I decided to try one of her fav brews. I've tasted Lindeman's before and enjoyed it, but I felt I needed to have a full bottle to give it a proper review.

A: Clear, bubbly orange/ amber with a creamy off white head that stuck around left a nice lace.

S: Aroma is clear of fresh peaches with a sugary and carbonated undertone.

T: Not surprisingly, peaches come through first and most prominently with a VERY sweet and lightly tart undertone. Has a bit of a sparkling wine quality to it.

M: Light body with a lot of carbonation and a bit of an oily texture.

D: Certainly different from my usual tastings, but not a bad brew overall. As I said little earlier, this has a good bit of a sparkling wine quality to it so it's probably good brew for folks who enjoy that style (like my wife when she's not pregnant, ha). Not a must try by any means, but a good brew none the less.

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.

Pours a hazy golden with a thin white head that leaves nice lace patterns on the glass.

There is a lightly tart character to the nose that is joined by a touch of malt and a crate of peaches. What a sweet sweet nose--like an over ripe peach.

This is a very sweet beer. The fruit taste overwhlems everything else but that is okay. This is like eating peach candy--without the residual sugar in the mouth. Interesting.

Thie is a thin beer that is lightly carbonated and smooth on the pallate. Despite the sweetness, it is still eay to consume. Good stuff.

I could easily drink this beauty in the spring and summer with an assortment of light dishes. It is almost like a peach soda that has a fine balance of sweet and tart. Nice stuff.

12 oz bottle poured into traditional pint glass

A - Pours an orangish/yellow color that is lightly opaque. Hmm, maybe this looks like the inside of a peach . Very minimal head and lacing. Still, an attractive looking lambic that actually looks like a traditional beer.

S - Not overpowering, but it certainly reeks of fresh peaches with a slight sour/funky Belgian scent coming through.

T - Woo! Tart peach flavor hints you hard in the middle of this beer, but thankfully its not the only attraction. Sure, its sweet at the front with a strong peach flavor, but there is a hint of Belgian yeast flavor that keeps things interesting. Low alcohol. More complex that other Lindemans offerings that I recall, but that might just be my poor memory talking.

M - Well carbonated and tingly, with a medium body and a sweet, fruity aftertaste.

D - A tasty change of pace in the beer world, and a bit less shocking that some other Lambics I've tasted. Worth trying out and perhaps cooking with.
