4.33/5  rDev +9.9%

750ml green bottle corked and capped. Obtained at Hannaford's Supermarket Derry, NH. Golden in color slightly hazy with a half inch off white head that shortly lasted. fruity smell with a nice peach scent with a slight vinegar scent but not overly pronounced. peachy but not syrupy with a sour finish. reminds me of biting into a nice ripe sweet peach in the middle of summer. light and crisp mouthfeel. very drinkable beer especially for summer/early fall.

Notes from Saturday's tasting:

The color is a hazy light orange. A white puffy head has light to moderate retention and leaves some lacing.

Sweet, tart peach is straight on the nose with a hint of something earthy and grassy just underneath.

Very sweet and tart right off the bat. The peach is pure and natural. The tangy bite lingers nicely and a very light hops flavor lurks. The sense that this is a beer is by no means overshadowed as some grains are evident and there's a nice, pure malt flavor in the finish.
This one is very crisp with a very nice full body. Carbonation is at a great level.
I've never had anything that so well appealed to people who don't drink beer and yet could so well appeal to those that do.

**Please tolerate my 'Short Review Series' which come from sparsley populated notes.

So I know I'm not very fond of peaches but I'll try not to let that interfere too much. Pours a clear golden jello with a nice head. Smells like peach cobbler and nothing more. Taste follows. Very thick, syrupy, sweet peaches, like those canned peaches you're saving for the next big earthquake. Nice enough.

Picked up this one at the Root Cellar for $5.99. Consumed 3/11/2009.

Pours a lightly cloudy peach color with a nice white head minimal lacing.

Smells of fresh, sweet peaches, tobacco and light apricot.

Taste is the same. Very nice and refreshing. Little to no funk presence. Very sweet...

Light bodied and highly carbonated. 12 ounce pour is all one needs for night.

4.65/5  rDev +18%

A: Dark orange color; somewhat of a cloudy, muddled copper. No appreciable head to speak of.

S: Gorgeous aroma of peach, apricots, and citrus. Peach dominates though.

T: PEACH. EXPLOSION. This is just oozing over the top with peach flavor; sweet, saccharine, almost-over ripe peaches. It almost tastes like you're biting into a peach that you just picked from the grove. The other Lindemans flavors (i.e. Kriek, Framboise) have enough of a yeast kick to remind you it's beer. This is just an overwhelming peach infusion.

M: Small, effervescent bubbles not unlike champagne which tingle the mouth ever so slightly.

D: Extremely sippable, gorgeously fruity brew. This is one I'll be recommending to all my friends, even the non-beer drinkers.

3.93/5  rDev -0.3%

Poured from a bottle into a Lindemans flute.

Appearance: Pale golden body with a crackling light head and a bit of lace.

Smell: Big fruity peach and sour lambic aromas flare my nostril.

Taste: A straight-forward tangy lambic. Peach notes and some yeasty funk are there in the flavor profile, just a tiny pinch of alcohol is noticable and light grains. Gueuze like sour note tempered by mild soft peach skin.

Mouthfeel. High level of carbonation, spritzy, semi-dry, almost like a soda.

Overall: A solid lambic with peaches added, not my favorite from Lindemans but still very tasty.

Pours a hazy, bubbly honey-amber with a decent white head. Rather strong aroma is sweet and mainly of peach. Flavor is peachy and quite sweet, more like nectar or schnapps than beer, with an undertone of malt. Texture is very smooth and rather fizzy. A good dessert beer.

4/5  rDev +1.5%

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.

Slightly cloudy peach color with a lingering head.

Smells exactly like peaches, very nice.

Taste is full of peaches. Very natural and balanced. Does get sweet after awhile, but also a bready background keeping it anchored.

Mouthfeel bubbly.

Drinkability limited by sweetness.

I haven't had many lambics, but this was nice.

Oh man,
Presentation is beautiful, loved the capped corked deal they got. Opened to a surprised pop that launched the cork with cork screw a few inches above the bottle top.

The bouquet is very potent and says "hey, im a fermented peach."

I'm trying to decide if it was too sweet or not. The sweetness seems to cover up an array of complexity that peeps through.

Feels like champagne. A bit too bubbly for my own preference but the taste would be compromised if it had any less.

I don't know if I could drink it all day, again it seems way too sweet at first but its not as thick as the flavour leads it to be. Very light but very flavourable. I would drink more if i had more.

Poured into a champagne flute. Beer is a hazy golden color with a burnt orange tint. Yeast and peaches in the nose, smells enticing. Taste is very refreshing. Carbonation is ample and lends itself well. A nice sweetness to the beer and peaches are definitely there but are remarkably well balanced with the malts. Perhaps a bit too sweet to drink in large quantities but this beer would serve itself well as an aperitif or champagne substitute.

3.73/5  rDev -5.3%

Pours a cloudy yellowish orange with a creamy head that disappeared pretty quickly. Left some lacing down the glass.

Smells very fruity and sweet/citrus and a bit corky (which threw me when I was opening it as I wasn't expecting it to have a cork)

Tasted very tangy and citrussy. Reminded me of a tamrind flavour rather than peach but the more I drank the more the peach flavours became evident. Sweet to start with then the tangy acidity to follow. Very crisp.

Not too heavy on the carbonation and light and refreshing on the mouth.

Not a bad drop.

Pours cloudy orange with a thin head. Smells like fuzzy peaches with some other fruity aromas and there is a little cork scent also. Very sweet peachy flavor at first that also mixes with maybe a little plum flavor that quickly dries out in a crisp finish. This is like candy beer.

4.8/5  rDev +21.8%

A - The bottle is corked with a cap in a dark green bottle. The beer looks like a squeezed peach! Carbonation is in full effect. Clear on the verge of being cloudy but what else would you expect a peach to be?

S - It smells like sweet aged wood or a sweet cork but not like peach. More wood/cork smell than anything else.

T - It tastes similar to the way it smells. Has a non traditional peach taste that makes your mouth salivate.

M - Your mouth will water for the after taste. You can taste the peachy cork it seems like. Leaves a very sweet peachy type taste.

D - This is a specialty beer to me. I could drink this all day but would expect a sour stomach after a few bottles. This would be great to serve to a group or someone who doesn't like a "typical" beer.

3.55/5  rDev -9.9%

Appearance: It's lightly hazy and gold in color. It's slightly hazy and features really nice orange highlights. Carbonation is very active and yields a one finger head. It dissipated very quickly and left very little lacing to speak of.

Smell: The nose smells predominantly of peach and other light fruit aromas. There's some light apple and pear noted. It smells extremely sweet. Surprisingly, it isn't overbearingly fruity. I didn't really know what to expect. There's a bit of a grainy aspect to it and it does have a pleasant yeasty aroma. It's not exactly deep, but it does manage to be above average.

Taste: It's no big shock that Lindemans Peche is extremely sweet and sugary. That much was apparent on the nose. It is fruity and features a nice peach flavor. There's some secondary apple and pear. Somehow it manages to work as a beer. It doesn't come across like a fruit flavored seltzer drink. It is yeasty and a little grainy. Those two elements are instrumental pulling this one off. It's a little tart on the tail. Ultimately, it's above average. It's too sweet for my usual preferences, but it's easily above average.

Mouthfeel/Drinkability: The body is nearly medium, but not quite. Carbonation is a little buzzy. It remains smooth somehow. Nice job in this department. Drinkability is limited by the strong sweet flavor. It goes down easy, but it'll take a while to get through a beer this sweet.

I've heard a lot of things about Lindemans lambics and this is my first go with Peche. I was pretty apprehensive about it to be honest. Despite the fact that it's merely above average beer, it is better than I expected. Based on what I'd heard, I wasn't expecting it to resemble beer much at all. I am surprised in that respect. Frankly, it's too sweet and just not my thing. That being said, it's alright and worth checking out.

I split a bottle of this (corked, capped, and foiled) with my better half. The beer is hazy gold color with a wet foam that coats the glass while fading on the liquid. The aromas are fruity and yeasty, it smells a little like Koningshoeven Tripel but with some peach. The taste is just a little sour, a trace of bite with the first sip but there's a lot of sweetness to balance the tart. The taste becomes a little addictive, this is really a better beer than I expected. The body is full with good carbonation. I've passed on this beer for years, periodically getting the kriek or framboise, but really the peche is the best of them so far for me.

First off let me say the wife bought this one and I took some for myself to taste.Poured into a tulip. Pours an amber color with a nice haze and almsot no heading which is white.Very little lacing throughout.

Smell is ....well peach and wheat afterwards.

Taste is nothing more than peaches and smacks those lips together looking for more making my tastebuds go crazy.

Mouthful is very thin,wet with no chew whatsoever just pure peaches.

Drinkability is very low for me a little to sweet for my liking but also a very good change of pace for once.

corked bottle served in chalice

A: orange amber color, slightly hazy with a very thin head

S: very strong fresh peach aroma, with just a hint of a tartness/earthiness background note

T: very peachy flavor, not well balanced with the beer, too sweet and not enough tartness, sweetness doesn't linger too long, but it is a bit syrupy, especially as it warms.

M: medium body, silky smooth and some crispness

D: drinkable for a fruit beer

For as fruity as this beer is it surprised me how refreshing it was. The peach flavor is syrupy but not annoyingly so.

Had at Porter's in Easton, PA

Poured into a flute glass. Pours an amber red with the consistency and look of a champagne. Smell is rather subdued, mostly peaches. Taste is a lot more than the smell would've given away with a lot of peaches and a yeast finish. Mouthfeel is almost dead on to the style - very light and very smooth. Although I wouldn't reach for this style normally, it's very refreshing with a fruity dessert.

Overall, a pretty tasty brew. Like previously stated I'm not big on the style, but I wouldn't turn down one of these if it were offered.

Pours a golden yellow color with a nice head.

Smell is peaches, light malt and grains.

Taste is peach, light malt and grains.

Mouthfeel is soft on the palate with nice tight, tickling bubbles. Not too cloying or puckering.

Drinkability is high.

Poured into a snifter. Clear golden with a 1.5 finger head and tons of fizzy champagne-like bubbles that rise from the bottom.

Smell is naturally sweet peach. No artificial aromas or gummy peach candy smells like some other fruit beers. Taste is syrupy sweet with peach obviously playing the lead. There is a nice sourness to the finish.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and good and fizzy. Drinkability is not that great. The sweetness becomes a bit cloying, and unlike Lindemans Pomme or Framboise, I don't think I would want more than one bottle. Still a good beer, but probably my least favorite Lindemans so far.

Poured this one in a tall glass beer mug.

Appearance - Pours a lovely golden honey color, fairly opaque. Tall head that dissipates fairly quickly.

smell - Smells of fresh peaches with a little yeast on the nose.

Taste - Not too sweet, but just enough, with a bright peach flavor. A joy to drink.

Mouthfeel - Smooth and easy on the palate with crisp carbonation.

Drinkability - definitely a one or two a day dessert beer. Sits pretty heavy in the stomach despite how delicious it is.

All in all, a personal favorite of the Lindeman's lambics. Normally the framboise is the lambic that gets all the accolades, but this one is worth a try.

Small head; cloudy light orange color.

Crisp, fresh dry peach aroma--reminds me of apricots.

I enjoy this combination: lots of peach, not as sour as some lambics. Very sweet. Full body along with a high level of CO2. I think Peche is my favorite lambic style. This may be my favorite Peche.

4.3/5  rDev +9.1%

Opened 25.4 oz. bottle, and poured into an (almost) flute.

A: Golden in color. Medium heavy carbonation pours into a 1 finger white bubbly head. Settles into a thin layer of bubbles on surface. Light carbonation continues to rise.

S: Slight hops, pretty decent yeast smell, and mostly, well. . . peach.

T: Strong peach on a wheat base, and yeast.

M: Syrupy feel. Carbonation is prominent. Light, but sweet aftertaste.

D: Great drinkability. Light, refreshing, flavorful.

Very fruity, flavorful beverage. Has enough of a beer taste though to make it reasonable. There's really not much else to say. If you're looking for a lambic, or any fruity beer for that matter, the buck stops here. Obviously, this is not something you're going to want to drink alot of, but this is a great quaff.
