Poured from a 330 ml bottle into a lindemans fluted glass. This pours a light yellow, with a large foamy head which leaves a lacing. The smells aren't really of peach, but some earthy grassy smells along with a yeasty lambic smell. The feel is medium with high carbonation. The taste is good, not as sweet as the frambrosie, there is a little earthy flavor along with the peach, good stuff.

Trying to work my way through the whole Lindemans lineup of "fruit lambics."

typed up from notes:

Bright clear orangey apricot color. Two fingers of white head with some spotty lace clinging in chunky streaks.

Smells of deep oak notes. Bit of dank, earthy funk. I get some peaches too, naturally, but they are almost lost in the oaky and earthy funk notes.

Tastes like synthetic peach flavor. Oak hits hard in the finish snd helps dry it out a bit, but not enough. The overall flavor is like this:
take some gummy peach rings.
Roll them around in the left over sour sugar from a bag of sour patch kids.
suck on them.

The body is thick and syrupy... needs to be lighter in feel with more bubbles. Just a touch of sourness here-- needs more!

Overall-- meh. too sweet and sugary (like many of the brewery's "fruit lambics") and not sour enough to cut through it.

From my beer journal. Originally reviewed on June 18, 2011.

A: Now this is what I'm talking about! I enjoyed the look much more than framboise. Hazy yellow gold. Deep, nice color. White head was white but didn't last long.

S: Peaches mostly come out. This one was slightly less tart smelling than Framboise.

T: A little malty at first then quickly turns to peaches. A lot of them. Carbonation finishes this beer nicely but leaves a slight aftertaste.

M: Good carbonation. Light to medium bodied.

O: This beer was quite tasty. Not as tart but it felt better balanced than the framboise.

I see this at every bottle shop but I've never bought a bottle. I love peaches so I'm not sure what took me so long.

Pours golden with a fizzy bright white head.

Taste and smell are almost identical. Reminds me of those overly sugary gummy peach rings. A faint tartness on the back end. Not much else.

Carbonation is right on point. Keeps it light and crisp. But it drinks like a sparkling peach wine cooler. Decent peach flavor but not my cup of tea.

Bought a 750ML (1 PT 9.4 FL OZ) bottle of this from the iTap House in Chesterfield, MO for $16 (a bit pricey but have been looking for this one!). Poured from the Green bottle with Peches on the front into a 12oz Stemmed Flute Glass. Does not have a freshness date but does have L G30JPE in white on the back.

Aroma- Has the sweetest and strongest peach aroma ever! Very artificial though but I'm not sure it could be any better in a Peche Lambic. Doesn't have much acidic aroma either.

Appearance- Pours a 3 finger head that is frothy and bright white. Has a light peach colored body (hence the brew I'm drinking) and has great clarity. Leaves the coolest/thickest lacing down the sides of the Flute Glass. Awesome!

Flavor- Has the most perfect peach taste you can ever get! Just like the fruit, very sugary and juicy tasting. Nice sweetness but not like other Lindemans Lambics. The peach actually overpowers the sweetness here! All other attributes are pretty much absent in here (hop, yeast, etc.).

Mouthfeel- Light Bodied, High Carbonation, Smooth, and has good peach taste all the way through plus after the drink.

Overall Impression- The best Lambic so far from Lindemans! No wonder it has taken me almost 6 months to find this. Actually, I probably could have just called around to local liquor stores and eventually found it but it was cooler to have stumbled upon it at a beer bar with friends. Would recommend this one for sure but not @ the $16 price. I bet you could buy this from $10-12.

Beer pours a good sized head. Color is, dare I say it, a nice shade of peach. Smell definitely has qualities of the beer's dominant ingredient. First sip shouts out as being juice-like, yet carbonated enough to still be beer-like. This really is dominated by the flavor of peach, and that isn't a bad thing, especially for a lambic. Mouthfeel is great, as is aftertaste, which generally trails off in a subtle, yet interesting fashion.

Probably not something I'd have more than a glass or two of in one sitting, it's a pretty good find!

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

A- Pours a peachy orange, like the color to look like the taste! Not a ton of lace or head.

S- Tons of sweet and syrupy peaches, sour notes, sugar.

T- Very peachy, very sweet, somewhat lactic sour, some peach and cream but mostly juicy peach.

O- I know this isn't a world class lambic, but it sure is delicious. I'd like some funk and more sour, but it's still tasty. It's basically juice by the by.

*Aged over 2 years at room temperature

It pours a pumpkin orange, not hazy but not crystal clear. An aggressive pour into my tulip yielded a modest head. It quickly fades, but leaves a constant film around the edges.

The nose has a nice pungent sourness. The peach flavor is aggressive, and has qualities of ripe, overripe, and candied peaches. Fresh floral tones, soft yeast, and just a hint of flaky crackers from the malt backbone make up a pleasant aroma.

Right off the bat, the sweet and sour flavors engage in combat. Behind the peach is a solid floral grassy flavor impressive for a two year old beer. It finishes slightly dry and exceptionally clean.

The mouthfeel is right on for me. The body is approaching full with a syrupy feel. The carbonation is very modest but adds the fuzz around the edges that somehow seems appropriate for a peach beer. All the while my mouth goes into pucker mode upon every sip.

Not a general fan of sweet beers but this brings a lot more to the table.

Pretty orange/copper with a billowing head. High clarity (careful not to disturb the yeast on the bottom).

Peaches for sure. Annnnd not much else.

Good complexity for something that is dominated by peach. The peach flavor is really excellent and has zero off tastes. The best part is the slight funkiness that finishes the drink.

Crisp and light mouthfeel, appropriate for this style of beer.

Overall very pleased with it.
