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

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.

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.

Poured from a 335ml bottle into a Rona snifter. Pours with a finger's worth of white foam that dissipates to a half finger's worth within two minutes. Bubbles are very mild. Very dull orange in color and very murky. Has very strong aromas of yeast, strong aromas of peaches, and a hint of wheat and apples can be detected (not a particularly great combo of scents). Initial taste is strong and delicious with peaches that combine with mild yeast flavors (I'm glad that the taste does not reciprocate that aroma because that much yeast flavor would be awful). A hint of wheat and apple flavors enter the palate immediately after combining with previous flavors as they persist. Medium-bodied with mild carbonation, very crisp finish, very smooth.

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.

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 !!

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.

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.

Aroma on this beer was fantastic but I didn't pick up the greatest taste. The carbonation was off and the bottle may have been old...

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...

Like eating a perfectly delicious ripe peach. Great flavor. A very sweet lambic suited in my opinion for dessert or after a meal.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.
