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,

Pours a hazy peach-orange color with a 1 inch fizzy white head that fades to nothing. No lacing on this one whatsoever. Smell is obviously of peaches, peach juice, and some slight sour/tart aromas. Taste is of fresh sweet peaches, peach juice, and some tart acidic flavors. A nice sour peach aftertaste with each sip. Very carbonated with a crisp and slightly sticky mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good lambic and probably my other favorite besides the framboise. Really nice peach aromas and flavors on this one.

A: Poured clear light orange with a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface. There's a light amount of carbonation.
S: The aroma is of sweet peaches.
T: There's a big, sweet flavor of peaches, although it's not overly sweet.
M: The mouthfeel is very light and refreshing; it feels smooth on the palate with a perfectly matched level of carbonation.
D: This beer is very easy to drink and would be perfect to pair with dessert.

Maybe the better of the Lindemans fruit beers. Still very sweet with a mild, but very sweet peach / apple flavor. Tart to offset sweetness. Certainly an after-dinner drink. Sweet to an almost cloying sense. Lightly syrupy and velvety texture with a sugar-sweet finish and lingering. Not overly strong as with the Framboise. Quite similar to the Pomme, but with a richer fruit flavor and texture. Solidly cider-ey but with a serious beer undertone. Enjoyable, but only on occations. No keg-stands for me.

Bottle: Poured an orange colored beer with a nice huge head. Aroma is simply comprised of a nice peach nectar. Taste is also mostly comprised of peach with a subtle tart finish. This is probably one of the most refreshing beers that I had the chance to taste, sometime it seems more like a cooler/juice then a beer. Nothing is very complex with this beer and the alcohol level is quite low.

I don't like peaches. In elementary school, a kid named Billy (who loved them) set out on a personal crusade to get me to change my mind. He failed. An unfortunate incident with a bottle of peach schapps in college only added to my distaste. Why, then, am I drinking a peach beer? Because I've enjoyed the other Lindemans fruit lambics that I've tried and because this is beer and deserves a chance. Hope springs eternal.

Nearly clear orange-amber that isn't quite orange enough to be considered peach. A few bubbles make their way up to an intensely bubbly cap of manilla colored foam. The head is impressively sticky and is beginning to deposit thick sheets of BB-riddled lace on the upper reaches of the glass. It doesn't look very peachy, but it does look good.

The nose smells like peaches. Not entirely though, to its credit. I know Lindemans's lambics aren't considered true representations of the style, that many find their bona fides lacking, but this beer doesn't smell like a simple, sweet, peachy mess either. It has an underlying exotic funky yeastiness that makes me think the flavor will have at least some degree of complexity and interest aside from the fruit itself. At least I hope so.

This is enjoyable beer. It may be nothing more than my imagination, but this version tastes sweeter than the other fruit lambics I've had from this brewery (Cassis, Kriek, Framboise). Thankfully, my peach schapps gag reflex is nowhere to be found. It isn't overwhelmingly peachy and is at least as complex as I had hoped... although not all that complex in the grand scheme of things.

The sweetness fades a little on the finish, allowing a tangy sourness to present itself and take the edge off what could have been a sticky, cloying, insulin-spiking, tooth-rotting beer. Needless to say, it falls into the category of 'panty stripper' even if it isn't as efficient as a few Fuzzy Navels. The Lindemans website gives the helpful suggestion that 'it's not to be despised with pancakes and ice cream'. Thanks for the tip.

The mouthfeel is as one might expect given the high sugar load: full and syrupy. It's a major mouthcoater and the several minutes that I'm taking between sips are needed for the stickiness to at least partially clear. I like this sort of mouthfeel, though, in the right circumstances.

Lindemans Peche is pretty good beer if one enters into the experience with the right attitude. I doubt that I'll ever buy another, but this bottle has brought me back a step or two from my peachophobia.

This brew poured out as a clear looking light orange color. The head fizzles away and leaves no lacing. The smell of the beer has a sweet and slightly tart aroma to it. The taste of this brew is much like wine to me. There is a sweet dessert like quality to this brew also. The mouthfeel is light and easy going. Overall I found this brew to be pretty good overall. It's not my favorite from this brewery but still not bad.

So I finally got my wife to drink a bottle of beer, granted a lambic, but good none the less. he actually really enjoyed it, but here are my views on it...

A - Poured a very hazy, light golden yellow, lots of visible carbonation coming up throughout the session. Nice two inch white fizzy head graced the top and was very slow to recede, in fact it never did fully. Lokked pretty damn good I must say.

S - Very very sweet, lots of peach and sugar, like candy. A good amount of yeast was evident as well. Very light aroma, lots there but nothing that overwhelmed you.

T - Very very sweet. I thought this was like a kids candied drink. Tons of peach flavors, but just sooo sweet, almost too much. But taken in light sips, very enjoyable actually.

M - Super smooth with lots of carbonation. Had that light silky quality to it. Really easy to go down.

D- Very nice, good drink it all night in the right setting. Low abv, you really could do a 12 pack before feeling any, the only thing that could get you after a while would be how sweet it is, but these are not really meant to be downed in that way.

Overall this was very good, and she enjoyed it alot, which was even more important. I now have a jumping off point for her to get her into some of the bigger beers. This was a damn fine lambic, and I will keep a few around in case she wants some more.

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.

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.

12 ounce corked, capped bottle - $5.49 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Delicately hazed, orange-gold body with a smallish, thinning, near white head.

Smell: Mildly tart, fruity (peaches, natch) aroma jacked up sweet-smelling sugars. It's a Lindemans.

Taste: Sharply candyish with an artificially-sweetened peach flavor, leaving any tastes of the barley, wheat, and hops far behind. Light tartness, light acidity. A little bit like that old Jones Peachy Keen soda or maybe a peach-flavored cider. There's a very small hint of mustiness leaking out around that heavy sweetness. Finishes fruity and sweet.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation.

Drinkability: For a peach-flavored libation, I'd rather opt for a bellini. Still, it's decent enough to split with the girlfriend on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

355ml, scaly gold foil-capped and corked bottle, enjoyed on Mother's Day, in the afternoon after all that brunch stuff, with, well, who else?

This beer pours a mildly hazy, medium golden straw hue, with three fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and bubbly off-white head, which renders some nice layered and streaky cloud lace around the glass as it evenly recedes.

It smells of semi-sweet barley grain, candy sugar, earthy peach pulp, a further hint of apricot fruitiness, and a mild, musty yeastiness. The taste is much more sweet orchard peach, a soft barley and wheat graininess, a bit of applesauce, and an echo of dusty, yeasty funk.

The carbonation is low, barely a perceptible frothiness arises, the body medium-full in weight, syrupy, and smooth just like juice. It finishes off-dry, the tart/sweet fruit and back seat grain mixing well to the end.

A pleasant fruit lambic, where, once again, a nice balance is struck between the fruit, grain, and yeasty funk. Something nice to sip on after a big meal, and somewhat dessert-like, inspiring thoughts of revisiting the 'local' (10-hour drive for me) orchard-strewn sunbelt strip ASAP.
