this is punishingly sweet, and there really is nothing lambic-esque about it. it pours a flat looking bronze color with literally no head. the nose is brown sugar and peach syrup, the kind starbucks uses to make your latte "special". the peach is artificial in taste too, sort of like dried apricots, but more crystalized on the sugar front. a good beer for kids, as it satiates the candy urge, and would require a gallon or two to catch a buzz (not that I advocate or condone youth and alcohol...). teeth rottingly sweet, but not boring. it really needs more bubbles, and I think the bottle does more justice to this than the tap, but it comes across a bit heavy with all the residual sugar and no bubbles to keep it moving. overall this is well made I suppose, but its not beer as we know and love it, its something to keep the wife busy while you guzzle IPAs and figure out how much you've got to pay the babysitter. nothing special from my point of view.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4

I have had this beer several times at Tap Works in OKC and also poured from bottle at home. Both are pleasing but it is much better on tap.
For this review I am reviewing poured from a bottle into a Pint glass.

A- Pale Orange, slightly cloudy. With a perfect poor it gives a 1 finger off white head that quickly dissipates with slight lacing.

S- Peaches are the most prominent scent. Wet hay in the background, maybe some stale cardboard. A slight funk that smells really good with everything else.

T- Sweet peaches, Grass, Bitter almost lemony taste, and that funk that really makes me want to take another drink.

M- Over carbonated. Almost burns my mouth from the fizz. This is the only thing I wish was different.

O- Overall, I rate this beer at a 4.o. If the carbonation was a little lighter This would easily get a 4.5. I can't rate at a 5 because even though this is a great beer, it's not something that I can drink everyday. It's a once or twice a year drink.

Pours a lightly hazy pale yellow with a small white head. In the aroma, sugary, tart peach skin. In the taste, quite sugary and small tartness of peach skin. A small tart bite, but mainly smooth and medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry tart peach skin in the aftertaste. Kind of like a gummy peach ring, and it is line smell, taste, and aftertaste all the way through.

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.

Had this on-tap at Father's Office in Santa Monica. Pours a pale yellow colour with thin white head. Smells strongly of peach, but also candy sugar. Flavour is both sweet and tart, quite a nice balance between the two flavours. Very smooth carbonation. This may be too sweet for me to drink more than one in a sitting, but it is good.

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.

Poured on tap at the Yard House in Long Beach (yes, I know, but my girlfriend wanted dessert). It poured a nice golden color with a quickly disappearing head.

In the nose were peaches, lots of peaches with a little it of beer and something else underneath. A truly remarkable smell.

The taste was likewise exceptional, bursting with peaches, sweet, but not overwhelming countered by a nice graininess and a finish with a hint of lambic sourness.

It felt lovely on the palate, smooth and drinkable. Very nice to find it on tap.

Had this at Alisal Cellars in Solvang, CA USA.

A - Orangy gold in the glass with a decent ehad and amazing lacing.

S - Super over-the-top peach scent, from a mile away even after it sat for about 20 minutes.

T - This tastes like peach juice, not beer. A bit sour and ridiculously sweet. If I was rating juice the taste would get a 5.0.

M - Mid-full.

D - Drinkable only if you like soda, juice or cough syrup...all of which I love, but even MY mouth puckered up on this one.

This was my first Lambic and I don't think I was prepared, lol.

I am partial to peach flavour and its healthy qualities.Lots of lace, a bit too sweet and peach aroma and taste. A bit of tartness and I would have liked more. Dessert beer. The taste is real and I would like to try fresh. Sampled at Cole's Belgian fest.
Sweetish but very good on tap at the Old Toad,

Yeah!
This beer actually reminds me a lot, A LOT, of a few American Strong Ales I've tried. The beer is sour, as sour as Lindeman's gets, while also maintaining real beer flavour, which I DON'T expect from Lindeman's.

I love it. Sour, and peachy. It's a rotten peach that's been dropped in the finest helles. I love it.

Yeah, it's cool. It lacks the yoghurt flavours I've experienced with other fruit lambics. If I didn't know what it was, I'd mistake it for an overly yeasty fruit ester beer.

Yeah.

Served on tap into a Lindeman’s flute, this is a light copper color, active carbonation evident, a finger of white head without much retention. Slight lacing on the glass. Aroma is all peaches, fairly strong, not overly sweet, very nice. Taste is a nice smooth peach, sweet but never cloying, finishing just slightly tart, very nice lingering peach aftertaste. This is a one note beer, as most of these fruity Lindeman beers are, but it really hits that note wonderfully. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, not as fizzy and bubbly as when served from a bottle, this makes it better IMO. This is probably the best of the Lindeman beers that I’ve had.

An excelent peach lambic. The beer poured a nice peachy golden color with a nice white head. The smell was very friuty and sweet, full of peaches and a bit of an apricot scent. When I sipped the beer the flavor of peaches exploded in my mouth followed by a nice dry sourness that counteracted the sweetness perfectly. Definantly a great desert beer and one that may cross over some non beer drinkers.

Wow this is a crushing taste of peach. The almost peachy color of this beer that has almost no head but plenty of carbonation sets up what the rest of the beer will be. It has an intense peach nose and the beer is sweet smelling too. The taste is tongue pulverizing a sweet lambic with a touch of souring characteristics and nothing but peach for miles around. It has a pleasent aftertaste that lingers of peach and a resonating sweetness. As I work my way through this one the taste deadens the senses and eventually it becomes more and more palatable. For sure this is not a session beir, but it is enojyable as a twelve ounce desert.

Poured a deep gold with some bubbles on top
Smell was of sweet peaches
Taste was good. It was sweet but not sickeningly sweet. There was a nice amount of peach flavor. Like a peach pie not like a raw peach if that makes sense.
Mouthfeel was a bit too carbonated but not enough to make it bad...just mediocre
Drinkability was ok... i liked the flavor and even though it was not overly sweet the sweetness might get to you after a few of these and the carbonation definately detracts.

Nice beer to find on tap, usualy arund Rochester its only the kriek. Poured in a lindeman's flute, which is a big plus for me. Had a smell spritzy white head woth a dirty yellow body full of carbonation. Smell was cool, with lots of bubblegum flavors and just a lingering hint of the peach. The taste was very refreshing with more peach, just a little of the musty funk of a lambic and a ton of sparkling champagne characteristics.There was also a good deal of dry tart body that helped make this very refreshing. The mouthfeel was very carbonated and usually I am not a fan of overcarbonation, but with a lambic it always seems to hit the sopt. Perfectly refreshing and always makes you question whether you are actually drinking a beer. Tasty even on a chillier night.

Well, reviewing this is more like reviewing wine than reviewing any beer. The color was golden, and there was no head. The smell was well, very peachy! The taste was very sweet, with very little hint of the lambic itself. The mouthfeel was quite smooth, as would be expected. One or two of these would be drinkable, although I think beyond that the sweetness would become too cloying. All in all, an excellent dessert drink, and a drink I would gladly give someone who normally doesn't like beer

This fruit based beer is pleasantly good, has great small, no edge, and no after taste. It pours golden, with a sparkling haze, one finger sized head, and medium amount of carbonation. It goes down light, not filling, and doesn't leave the mouth dry. It has a sugary and peach taste, with little to no hops/malt taste. Very little alcohol, good for starting the night out...

Into a stange.

A: clear golden colored body with a one fingered white foamy head and leaves some clingy
lacing

S: sticky sweet peach, light apples try to enter as it warms

T: sweet sticky peaches and apples; sweet sticky peaches and apples aftertaste, watery peachy finish

M: light, extremely sessionable (perhaps one of the most sessionable beers I may have had); I see the ABV is nice and low which assists for that, carbonation is fairly subdued and almost lets this one drink like peach flavored water

O: fruit lambic, well gee weez, I really like this one a lot, and would love to come back to it this Summer

From Platinum. BB Jun 2015

A - fizzy fruit juice-like, one finger head. Little lace, nice film.

S - peach puree.

T - peaches, sweet, apples. The sweetness of the peach (puree) is offset - a little - by a crisp apple taste. Overall sweet on the palate.

M - nice, lively.

O - I am drinking this on a stinking hot night and it is good because it is refreshing, but bad because it is a ten dollar plus beer of 2.5% which goes down like essentially soft drink. It is NOT a sour lambic to me, whilst there is a moderate crisp note to the taste it is essentially a sweet beer. Not to be repeated.

Poured from bottle into tulip glass

A- Hazy with a peach-like hue. Pure white head that diminished quickly after pouring. Light bubbles rolling up side of glass.

S- Peach right away with some candied fruit and tartness to finish.

T- Sweet and tart, almost like a sparkling cider. High carbonation becomes apparent immediately. Pleasant taste of fresh peaches.

M- Sour, carbonation, refreshing

O- I would definitely buy it again, it is a perfect drink for that hot summer afternoon. I'd like it a bit colder than it was during my tasting.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured from bottle into a tulip glass

Appearance –The beer pours a crystal clear light amber color with a peach like hue, as it is tinted with colors of orange and a bit of red. Upon pouring there is one finger of fizzy pure white head and tons of champagne like carbonation bubbles seen streaming up through the brew. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a bit of fizzy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is big and sweet with tons of fruity peach aromas and lots of Belgian candied sugar smells. Along with these aromas are some other lighter fruit aromas of apricot and apple as well as a hint of a sour and funky smell.

Taste – The taste begins with a huge sweet taste of peach, candied sugar, and apricot. As the taste advances the peach grows even stronger in flavor, really taking on the bulk of the sweetness of the brew. A lighter level of tartness and a hint of a grassy and herbal flavor develop more toward the end. In the end a massively sweet peach juice flavor, with just hints of a grass and tartness are left on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is quite high consisting of tons of tiny little carbonation bubbles. The thin body and prickly carbonation are fantastic for the sweet peach and lightly tart flavors of the beer, making this beer very refreshing and enjoyable.

Overall – While very-very sweet, the peach flavor is quite authentic and really is not all the cloying. With the tart and light grass flavors as well as the fantastic mouthfeel, the flavors end up making for a rather refreshing peach flavored sweet lambic.

Typically lambic, a little hazy, effervescent and bubbly. Aroma is peachy and has that usual lambic musty note. Flavor is quite tasty, peach comes through well as does typical lambic malt flavors and that kinda old musty classic lambic flavor. I've enjoyed each of this brewery's lambics that I've tried so far, and this one is no exception.

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.
