WOW!

A- Looks like a clear beer with a peachy hue

S-Wow smells like beautiful peaches. I love the smell

T-Tastes like a peach orchard. It's on the sweet side but not too sweet. I love it. I can't taste the alcohol just nice peachiness.

M- Feels good. Feels like a peach soda--smooth and decent carbonation.

O- Wow I love this beer. I can easily drink this all day long on a nice summer day.

Bottle the other day. Paired with a strawberry, mango and peach pie for dessert

Pouring clear orange with a thin, wispy, white head that falls off to a ring leaving minimal lacing, this looks pretty decent. The nose is moderately sweet in a fruity way, with plenty of peach character present. In some ways, this is like peach juice, with a little bit of lemon and just a wisp of barnyard present. Surprisingly complex, IMO. The palate, though, is a lot sweeter. That aspartame sweetness is prominent, rather artificial and takes away from the fruit character. It also hides any lambic character that's present. Sweet on the finish, this medium-light bodied beer is moderately carbonated and finishes sweet. Decent, this is better as an accompaniment with a dessert where it's lack of complexity can be hidden.

Review is from notes taken on 5/22/2011 and poured from the bottle to a fluted tulip.

Appearance: Pour is a slightly murky peachy color (coincidence?) and it starts with a 1 and 1/2 finger white fizzy head that fades relatively quickly to a thin and even fizzier skim; body is a little hazy, but still shows pretty strong carbonation bubbling up throughout; a few big swaths of lacing are left behind.

Smell: It smells like peaches, just like peaches. I feel like I opened up a can of the Del Monte peaches I used to get when I was a kid and it smells just like them -- very sweet. A slightly grainy maltiness is

Taste: Very good -- sweet, syrupy peachiness reigns supreme and is really the dominant flavor; there is a very mild tartness to it, but it's really subdued by the prominent sweetness and flavorful fruitiness; in the end, there is a touch of light yeast and again the slightly toasty graininess. ABV is so low in this I feel like I'm drinking a very effervescent punch or a mimosa.

Mouthfeel: Body is medium weight, and it comes across a little syrupy; carbonation is present and a little prickly, but not overly done (I actually thought it might be a little stronger); mouth is left moist and sticky all over.

Overall: I would say this beer is dangerously drinkable. It's got a great scent to it, matching flavors and pretty low ABV... It would be easy enough to drink all day and night. I would think it would be especially refreshing in the summer months with the sweet fruit and mild tartness to it.

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

A - Golden yellow with a half inch white head that almost immediately goes down to nothing. Barely any lacing, but I can see some bubbles forming on the sides of the glass.

S - smells like those Peachy-Os candy, Totally artificial peaches, sweet green apples/apple juice,

T - starts out with lots and lots of sweet peaches and green apple and a touch of cherry, very sweet, very artificial tasting. Reminds me a lot of sparkling juice my family used to make me drink at dinner instead of wine....The huge amount of sweetness dulls out a bit in the finish and reminds me of one of those green apple-caramel lollipops, but again, tastes artificial. If you're in the mood for something sweet or plan on pairing this with something sweet, or soaked in rum/brandy, this would be solid.

M - light, crisp, effervescent, reminds me of carbonated juice.

O - Very good in small quantities, or paired with something that could really highlight sweetness and artificial fruit.

poured into tulip glass

A: hazy gold, thin but lingering head

S: pungent smell of fruitiness (plum, apricot) nicely mixed with acetic sour (vinegar) . remind me of Japanese Plum Wine

T: i am hit with strong sweetness just like a plum wine. i detect plum, apricot, melon. this sweetness is followed by a hint of vinegary sour, and it sticks on your tongue.

M: full body. thick mouthfeel. sticky. a little bit too sweet.

D: low (minus from sweet).

i like its aroma. it stands out

Pour yields weak thin head. Body is bright vibrant orange. Smell is tart citrus orange with a twist of peach. I am also picking some clove and other Belgian yeast qualities. Smell seems to mostly be in the sourness. My first so I would say this is good. Has a super nice sourness with nice sugar sweetness mixed in. I think I get more sour apple than peach myself but it does show up in the aftertaste. For a newbie I would compare it sour patch kids or those candy peach rings. The flavor hits immediately and stays the same throughout. It really holds up for the long run. I think I would enjoy it more if the carbonation was amped up a bit but still it feels pretty good on the tongue. My first sour, or at least I think it is, actually delivered on what I expected. It really tasted exactly as I imagined it would and that does not happen often with beer.

On-tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad

A: The pour is a slightly cloudy golden orange color with a couple fingers of white head.

S: Smells like what you would expect from Lindemans. Lots of sweet peaches and peach candy. Underneath it all, there is a slight acidity, grass, and wet oak smell which helps to combat the sugary nature of the beer.

T: Like with the nose, there is a lot of sweetness. The peach flavor is quite intense, which is what I do like about it. Again, there is a subtle acidity and mustiness to it, but overall quite sweet.

M: Medium in body with a fairly high level of carbonation.

O: Certainly quite sweet in terms of the flavor, but not the worst of the Lindemans products.

75 cl

Pours a clear apple gold with some lacing.

Smells of tart apples and sugar sweetness.

Tastes of apples and peaches, cidery, and candy sugar.

Medium to thin body with sparse but tingly carbonation.

Very sweet, an enjoyable dessert type beer, fans of cider would like it a lot.

750mL corked and capped bottle with no freshness date, poured into Maudite stemmed glass, reviewed on 4/8/11

A: Slightly hazy golden orange with thin white head that dissipates quickly.

S: Ripe apricots with a touch of funk, a slight apple aroma as well. No real hop aroma to speak of.

T: Tastes great with some tartness, sweet ripe apricots and some funk. The tartness from the spontaneous fermentation balances out the sweetness of the apricots really well.

M: Really crisp and tart, not mouth puckering tart, but enough that I want to lick my lips after each sip.

O: I like it, not enough that I would go out and buy some, but enough that I will take a taste when I get the chance. If this were a little less sweet and a little more tart I would like it a whole lot more.

750ml capped and corked (man, i hate that) bottle. drank out of the lindemans flute that i got as a gift in the 2 bottle gift set 2 christmas' ago. no freshness information anywhere on this bottle.

A- this one pours out a translucent golden orange colored body with a half finger of bright white colored head on top. the head lasts for a while and leaves behind a solid ring of lacing. much nicer than i had anticipated.

S- the initial whiff brings forth a large blast of peach pie filling and all the sweetness you would assume comes with it. there is the slightest hint of barnyard funk and sourness. thats about it. its all about the peaches here.

T- the taste is just as it smells. there is a little bit of sourness and barnyard funk that adds a little hint of old and musty flavor to this, but other than that its all about peach pie filling. very sweet. very juicy.

M- on the lighter side of medium bodied. there is no hint of the really low level of alcohol in here. very sweet. little to no dryness from the wild yeast.

O- if youre big on peach pie, check this one out. if youre looking for a true belgian lambic, avoid this one. overly sweet and without the tartness that one would normally associate with a lambic.

750 mL bottle at 42 degrees into a Boon Kriek glass, split with my girlfriend.

A: It pours a clear orange color with a finger of powder-white and thick head that laces okay.

S: Juicy and tart peaches.

T: It begins sweet and turns tart near the finish, ending in a puckering of the lips - in a good way, of course.

M: The body is medium-light with heavy carbonation and is altogether very champagne-like.

O: This is a terrific lambic that is delicious and weak enough in alcohol to be enjoyed at any hour.

750ml bottle served in a champagne flute.

L - clear copper/orange color with a white head that settled down to a light ring in a few minutes.

S - tart peaches

T - tart peach taste takes the show here finishing tart and dry.

F - light/medium bodied with a crisp feel.

O - a refreshing treat that I'll have to try with peach cobbler sometime.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a flute.

Pours a clear apricot/peach color with a thin fizzy head that goes away like ginger ale.

The nose is all peach. Smells wonderful- both sweet and sour.

Taste is sour peaches at first followed by a wave of sweetness. Some slight beer flavor but the peach is so up front its hard to get much more out of it. This is my first lambic, so I'll have to come back to this after I've adjusted to the style more.

Mouthfeel is light with a good bit of carbonation. The sour in the front is slightly puckering but it mellows out nicely.

Drinkability is high. This is delicious.

Split a 750 of this on a relaxing Friday afternoon.

Cloudy orange with a big frothy white head. Lots of lace left behind on the the flute. Aromas are a tad skunked, not prominent in any magnificent way. There's a little bit of fruitiness but it's almost stale and somewhat metallic. The flavors tell a whole different story, thankfully. Sweet, syrup-like peaches up front and some bitterness at the back. High carbonation with a thick mouth-coating consistency. This brew is good, but it's even better when you have someone to split it with. Too sweet for me to consider drinking an entire 750. I'd go with something like this before or after dinner.

Poured from a 355 mL bottle into a tulip.

Pours a golden color with a definite orange/rose hue. Very well carbonated. Small head with aggressive pour, about a finger of sand. Dissipates quickly, leaves no trace.

Strong peach in the nose, with subtle notes of wheat. Tart, but noticeable sweetness.

Immediate taste of biting into a fresh peach. The tartness is strong, but good. The sweetness finishes up without being too strong, but just compliments the tartness.

Very carbonated; reminded me of a champagne, but still finished smooth.

Very easy sipper when you're looking for something light and tart. not too much sour, not too much sweet. Great overall.

Yellow in color, 1 finger white head with amazing retention, almost clear and lots of bubbles can be sen in the glass.

smells like the pit of a peach, sweetness is very pronounced, slight bitterness is there as well.

tastes like a peach! Flavor comes through very well, there is a tart bust after the initial sweetness. There is also an underlying syrupy sweetness to this beer, very pleasant though.

Mouthfeel is weird, its light in body but feels almost syrupy at the same time, the champagne like carbonation lends it an effervescent quality. Very interesting on the palate.

Drinkablility is high, hell the bottle was gone before i knew it and i certainly could drink another. All in all for my first experience with a beer of this style this one makes me want to explore it further.

[Best served in a Flute glass]

Poured a dark pale orange with a small white fizzy head that was mostly diminishing and had fair lacing. The aroma was of a bread malt, a doughy yeast with a strong peach presence. It tasted sweet of peaches and malts at first and finished sweetly-sour and quite peachy (almost like a champagne). Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and dry in texture with a very lively carbonation. Overall a tasty Lambic, especially if you like champagne.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - Looks like an apple cider, yellow-amber and hazy but with a little more of an orange or copper hue. White frothy head that has medium-low retention.

Smell - Aged peach smell, slightly floral, somewhat grassy.

Taste - Very sweet, not sickly sweet. No detectable alcohol. Only a very slight bitterness in the finish. Almost none to speak of.

Mouthfeel - Perfect about of carbonation and body. Very refreshing.

Drinkability - Not a session beer. Then again, most lambics aren't. However, it's a perfect dessert or brunch beer.

Poured into a pint glass... I picked this one up to show the gf a few different lambic/chocolate mixes, but I wanted to try this one straight too to get a good feel for it on its own.

It's clear, with sparkling orange color and not much head. Kinda has a champagne look to it.

The aroma didn't blow me away... definitely peach, sweet, and a little grass note too. A little sour.

The taste is far better! Still sour and peach notes, but there's a nice malt beer flavor in there too. It's not overly sweet like some lambics and really has a tasty balance that makes this one far more drinkable than the raspberry lambic from Lindemans that really overpowers me.

I'm a fan, I like the peach flavors, and love the balance.

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.

Presentation - Corked, capped, and foil in a very nice 12oz bottle. Poured into two Lindeman's flutes... one for me and my other half!

Appearance - Very bubbly with a consistent stream of bubbles to the top! Clear golden yellow color. Creamy white head with minimal lacing.

Smell - A little funky, peachy, and grainy! Surprising for a Lindeman's... I am used to the Raspberry my wife usually likes.

Taste - Balanced blend of funky lambic, peaches, and traditional beer! Not too sweet or bitter.

Mouthfeel - Heavily carbonated and nice acidity. Not too sticky or overwhelming. Just peachy.

D- Very high drinkability with a nice, average 4%ABV and great taste.

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

A - This beer pours a bright golden peach color, with a big fluffy 2-finger white head on it. The head left some good lacing on the glass as it fell.

S - It smells of peaches and belgian yeast. There is some sourness and a touch of funk, as well as a bit of green apple.

T - There is a big peach flavor explosion here. It is a very sweet beer, but there is some good sourness that cuts it. It has a pretty mellow finish on it.

M - It has a medium body and good carbonation. There is a bit of a puckering sourness that comes in before the finish. It goes down pretty smooth and is refreshing.

D - I think this has pretty good drinkability. It is a good beer, but the sweetness is getting to me a little. Keep in mind this is my first lambic, so I'm not quite used to this style of beer yet. Overall, I liked it. I definitely think I need to keep getting more fimiliar with this style and understand it more. My girlfriend loved this one though. I recommend trying it out.

This was my first experience with a Lambic and an eye-opening one at that. Poured a hazy, lazy, pale gold with a white head and sharp lacing. Smelled of fresh peaches soaked in fresh peach juice. Tasted of a peach farm, peach puree with a simple syrup component to it. ad a clean, brisk and refreshing bite to it with a little tartness on the end. Mouthfeel was crisp and clean and bubbly. Drinkability, maybe not for a night out but the right time for this beer is a summer weekend. Really good stuff.

This was amazing, perhaps the best memory of this christmas, and a christmas miracle too (I found a beer my mom liked the taste of). This beer poured orange with a white/peach colored head, smell was intensely of sweet fruits, complimenting the taste. It was light and bubbly to the tongue, the alcohol almost not noticeable, it was perhaps that that made it so easy to drink.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a deep orange/gold color, with a short but dense white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is full of peaches along with some Belgian yeast, wheat and light malts

T: The taste starts out very sweet with a strong peach flavor as you would expect. The some breadiness comes in from flavors of wheat, wild Belgian yeast and a thin malt character. There's a decent balance for a beer so sweet. Likewise the after-taste is quite sweet.

M: Smooth and a little crisp, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

D: Tasty especially if you're into peaches, goes down easily, not too filling, very mild kick, good representation of style, while it's a little on the sweet side, it done much better than most regular fruit beers.
