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

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. (627 characters)

Had a bottle of this at a cafe in Paris, France. 37.5cl bottle, best by 02/05/15, poured into a tulip.

a - Pours a hazy, murky bright orange color with one inch of bright white head and high carbonation evident.

s - Smells of sweet peach juice, sweet fruity malts, musty notes, oak, tropical fruits, sugar. Nose is super sweet, but it smells very good; like their other lambics but with peaches, obviously.

t - Tastes of sweet peach juice, swete fresh peaches, sugar, fruity malts, bread. Too sweet of a taste for me.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. Easy to drink, like juice.

o - Overall a decent Lindemans; basically like all their other beers but peach flavored, so just depends which fruit you like best. I like peaches and while I liked the nose, the taste was too sweet for me to handle...split a 375 with my girlfriend as she loved it and I couldn't handle the whole thing myself. Worth checking out if you like their other stuff, but don't expect a sour lambic. (979 characters)

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Lindemans Peche pours a color somewhere near burnt amber and copper with a decent amount of clarity, save for a bit of haze in the middle of the glass. The head pillows up quite large; eggshell in color and crackling as it quickly recedes to a mere skin that blankets the peach brew.

I've gotta say, the aroma of this one is much funkier than all of the other Lindemans fruit lambics that I've tried. Huge rounds of yeast, cork, must, damp cellar, barnyard, and just overall funk invade the nostrils with a surprising poignancy. The peaches come through pretty strong as well; juicy, tart peaches and apples skins mix well with the funk.

Some underlying sweet malt and soft wheat outline the rougher edges of the aromatic profile and balance things out just a bit more. I'm pretty excited to finally bring this one to my lips, as I love peaches, and this definitely has the best nose of all the Lindemans lambics. The funk really surprised me, and I can't wait to finally try it.

Unfortunately, I'm a bit let down by the flavor. The strongest thing I taste is not the funk of the yeast or the tart of the peach - it's a residual-like, sugary sweetness that immediately breaches your palate and confiscates all other flavors. It still tastes like peaches, but sugar-coated, exceedingly-sweet peaches, rather than tart and sour peaches, which is kind of what I was hoping for.

I guess there's a light tartness at the start, but it's VERY light and gets quickly overtaken by the sweetness. Funk is much less noticeable, although some vinous oak and tannin notes pop out that weren't relevant on the nose - so that's certainly a plus. The aftertaste is full of sweet peaches and a touch of oak. I really wish the funk was as heavy on the palate as it was in the aroma, but sadly - it is not. Crisp mouth feel, dry, heavy carbonation.

If this thing tasted closer to how it smelled, it would have been awesome. A tart, funk peach-fest, but by aroma only. The taste lead on to a much sweeter, sugary style of peaches that still tasted fine, but could easily wear down a palate (or even a sweet tooth). More funk, more tart, and less sweet is the key. For some strange reason, my nose was pleased but my taste buds were not. (2,222 characters)

12oz green corked capped and foiled bottled.

A: pretty clear pale straw color. Light cap of tiny little bubbles

S: fresh peach and tartness in the background.

T: opens with sweet pale ale flavor obviously sweetened. Then the peach flavor washes over the palate. It finishes kind of musty but it is a good way to end the sip. Leaves a lingering sweetness.

M: pretty standard light end of medium for body but it is exactly how it should be.

O: Lindmans doesn't fail, this is just as good as the frambois. Could be that peaches and raspberries are my favorite fruits though. (577 characters)

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

375ml bottle served in a Lindemans flute glass

Appearance: Golden yellow color and fairly clear. What little head did form dissipated instantly. No lacing.

Smell: Fresh peaches dominate the aroma with some apple, and a sugary sweetness. There's a slight acidity and funk in the background as well.

Taste: There's a huge blast of sugary sweetness right from the beginning that lasts through the finish and distracts from anything else that's going on with the beer while it's in the mouth. Aftertaste is fresh peaches and nectarines with some slight tartness.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied and crisp mouthfeel. Carbonation on the higher end of medium.

Overall: I was disappointed with this one. There were some nice peach flavors and aromas, which saved it from being a bomb, but I'd still stay away from this one. It's too sweet and lacks the sour, tart, and funky characteristics you'd look for in a Belgian Lambic. This was more like drinking an expensive peach soda. (970 characters)

Been meaning to try this and some of the other Lindeman's variations for a while now and finally got around to pulling the trigger.

Pours a clear dark gold with lots of carbonation although the head fizzes away pretty quickly. Smells of peaches, peach juice, a little tartness.

The taste is again lots of peach, lots of sugary sweetness and very mild tartness/sourness in the aftertaste. Thin, crisp, and very drinkable if you enjoy sweeter beers. I could easily chug this like a soda.

As a big fan of fruit beers and ciders this is really enjoyable to me even if it does border on being too sweet once you near the end of the bottle. For those who aren't a big fruit beer fan this will probably be WAY too sweet so you might want to steer clear. I really enjoy it though, it's a nice treat. (794 characters)

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.25

A - light orange, even dare I say, peachy in color, with a finger and a half of off white head, plenty of swift carbonation streams

S - definite fruit aromas. You can definitely determine it is reminiscient of pitted orchard fruits; peaches, nectarine, apricots, etc. Doesn't smell fake or added on, but doesn't smack entirely of authentic natural aromas

T - The taste quells my fears from the aroma. What an amazing flavor, mellow, subtle, laid back, relaxed. Mild, not tangy, not sharp, winderful clearly peach sparkling beer. One of the better Lindemans varieties I have ever tried.

M&D&O - so perfectly drinkable, inoffensive, gregarious, makes friends really easy, situations where I brought over a bottle of Lindemans Framboise may get replaced with this nectar (771 characters)

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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. (958 characters)

poured from a 750 ml to a tulip glass

A- Pours a nice light golden, hazy with yeast particles and visible carbonation, big soapy head that sticks and slimes all over the glass.

S- Funk baby! Funk all over, some touches of sour apples and vinegar and sweet sugar

T- Sweet tart peach, jolly ranchers, sugar, delicious

M- light bodied, full of carbonation, sweet & sour, and finishes dry

O- great lambic, love this f'n beer! (428 characters)

The golden body, tending to amber, supports a very pale, almost white neck. The smell of peaches is dominant on other floral scents presents in the background.

The taste is loyal to the aroma, but now the sourness shows up. I don't notice any hop taste. This medium-body beer has an incredible ability to go through the palate without any notice - it's pretty interesting. Also, it seems to be a very good alternative for a champagne. (435 characters)

This looks like a lightly colored fizzy apple juice. There’s a tart aroma that smacks of what I imagine peach blossoms to smell like. Very—overly—sweet with the flavor of an almost-artificial ripened peach on the palate. Think something along the lines of a peach jam in terms of sweetness. It is crisp and an easy drinker but that does not make this one I’d seek out again. (382 characters)

355 ml bottle with no apparent bottled on date. Super stoked to try this brew, as it will be my first Brouwerij Lindemans Lambic that I am trying! Uncapped and poured into a Boulevard tulip glass. I'm surprised at the presence of a cork in addition to a bottle cap, but that's okay.

A - Pours an extremely cloudy, sparkling, apple cider yellow looking color. No head at all.

S - Smells like the tartest apple juice you could ever get your hands on. Peach isn't exactly coming in strong on the nose for me, but it is definitely full of citrus twang and life. Smells sweet, tangy, and sour mixed with some dirty wet socks that were left out for a week (which might sound bad, but in my experience, this usually indicates a fabulous tasting beverage). I'm salivating already.

T - Tart and sour. Very lovely taste. Carbonation level is perfect, the beer's body is very well-balanced. Reminds me of an extremely yummy alcoholic apple juice, or some kind of cider, except if you ask me, this beer tastes a hell of a lot better than any cider I've ever tried.

M - Tartness disappears in the blink of an eye, and all you're left with is a bit of leftover stickiness from all the fruit sugars.

Overall, this was a delicious first introduction to Brouwerij Lindemans Lambic beers, and I am excited to try more. I think the only thing disappointing me about this beer is it's lackluster 4.0% abv.

A: Average looking carbonated beverage that contains alcohol.
S: Light peach aroma.
T: Vague peach taste. Sweet to drink. A little bit sour.
M: Great bubbles.
O: Light peach flavour. People who enjoy lightly flavoured fruit beverages should try Lindemans Pêche. (304 characters)

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

Poured into a Saint Somewhere wine-style glass. No freshness date.

A- Pours a clean bronze color with a 1/2 inch white head that instantly vanishes to a paper-thin ring around the edge of the glass and a light splotch of surface foam. Nearly no lacing.

S- Peach soda smell that's sweet and seems only somewhat artificial. Slightly effervescent.

T- A sweetness that dances on the border of cloying and has a white wine-like quality but with peach flavoring.

M- Very thin but syrupy and a bit dry. Low carbonation leaves much to be desired since the body is so watery.

O- With more carbonation, this might be a decent lambic. (628 characters)

Neat well, peach colored pour, white head on the top, 1", looks nice. Aroma of peaches and sugar. Nothing really offered up in terms of tartness or sourness from this. Pretty much every lindeman's I've ever had with the exception of the cuvee rene gueuze works out this way. The peach is a nice juicy aroma.

Taste, appreciable peach, but also significant sugary content. A little bit of tartness develops on the palate. Wheat is perceptible. Peach is strong, like the pimp hand. The downfall is just the massive sugar content, and it is oh so prevalent in the mouthfeel, like you're drinking a peach lemonade or something, but without even the tartness of something like lemonade can bring. I like it more than the other sugary lambics lindeman's offers, but I think this would just be so good if they cut down on the sugar and amped up the tartness in these. (861 characters)

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

Poured from bottle into oversized wine glass (no flute at the moment).

A- Hazy straw-wheat, and tons of lively carbonation. No head retention, but a nice Saturn ring that leaves slippery lacing on the side of the glass.

S- PEACHES! Lots of fresh sweet peaches, a tiny pinch of citrus, very aromatic.

T- Palate follows the nose on this one. Sweet peaches with a sour finish. Not too many dimensions, not complex with taste but a solid lambic.

MF- Light medium body, TONS of carbonation that tickles the tongue. The taste really hangs around your mouth.

O- This is a very sweet/sour beer, and I mean very sweet. I can only handle one bottle of this due to that simple fact that it is just way to sweet for my taste. I still enjoyed it very much. This is not my everyday beer at all, but I could possibly see myself trying more lambics in the near future. I spent about 6 bucks for a 12 oz. bottle so if you are "experimenting" it is a just above fair price imo. Still good in my book though. (996 characters)

A: Crystal clear wheat color. Not overly carbonated in the flute glass.

S: A real tartness comes through. Hints of peach. Some sweetness. A good balance.

T: Really great balance of tart and sweet and peach flavors. The tartness overtakes a bit much near the end but not bad.

M: Great flavor development here. This really lets the peach come through while having a perfect carbonation. Again, sweet and tart.

Overall a great showing. I dare say this one is a little too sweet compared to other Lindemans but the balance is great as always. Highly recommended. (563 characters)

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass, the lambic was a golden color. Giving a generous head, the lambric has a champagne-like level of carbonation. A bouquet of fresh cut peaches erupted from the glass. It does not really smell like beer, but that is how lambics are supposed to be. The initial taste is tart peaches with honey and a hint of cinnamon. The peach hits the sour buds on the tongue making them tingle with the sour sensation. My great disappointment with this beer is that the flavor did not last long as the carbonation brushed the peaches away quickly, leaving a somewhat watery aftertaste. The tart peach notes are present, but not with the same level of intensity. (686 characters)

Tried this at Gigs in London. Poured a clear orange/pinkish colour, just like a peach. This one tasted like a jolly rancher as well, with a bit more apple coming through then peach in the flavour. Its pretty crazy how much fruit flavour they got in this though. Interesting beer. (279 characters)

Pours a lively, bubbly peach colored elixir into a snifter. Wonderful 2 inch frothy head that takes its time to fade.
Sweet peaches on the nose, with citric tones that's very inviting.
The same sweetness hits the tongue, some tartness bringing the whole peach flavor to the front.
Extremely drinkable, the low ABV together with the refreshing fruit notes, make this beer a truly unique experience.
Spontaneous fermentation is alive and well!
Simply delicious!
Highly recommended! (479 characters)

At the time of this review, this is #32 on the "Top Beers - Lambic - Fruit" list on beeradvocate.com. Served in a Lindemann's flute glass because I own them for this reason, would be dumb not to you think?

Beer is yellow and mostly clear with a nice white head of medium and large bubbles. Moderate retention, no lacing though, aggressive carbonation.

Aroma is all peach all the way, smells nice.

This sint' a great beer and not a great lambic but it is sweet and light and very fruit forward, it is a fun beer and hte wife seems to like it especially in summer so I don't have a problem with it. I'll never go out of my way to drink one of these fake lambics but I'll try anything once, better than I expected. (714 characters)

This brew pours an orange/copper color with a two finger head which dissapates inside of five minuets. Minimal lacing stays on the glass throughout. Fair amount of carbonation.

The smell is strong with peaches, which is what this brew is about. There is also the smell of apples and wet hay/straw.

The taste is heavy on the peaches. Sweet malts and the Lambic tartness which reminds me of a Granny Smith apple. There is also a slight yeast taste near the end of the brew.

The mouthfeel is crisp, clean and tart. Just like most Lambic's it makes the mouth pucker as you drink it.

Overall this brew answers the call of being a summer fruit Lambic. Light and easy to drink. Strong on the peach flavor and Lambic tartness. (724 characters)

Mouthfeel: Well-balanced/full-bodied lambic with just the right amount of carbonation.

Taste: peaches and apples. Though this is a peach lambic, it comes across as an apple cider. (287 characters)

T: Sweet fresh peach, sweet white wine in the middle and some yeast in the finish. Very refreshing tasting.

Poured into a tulip glass from a 750ml bottle.

Pours a nice golden color with some orange hues. A nice 0.5 inch head forms that is a bit dense yet recedes quickly.

Aroma of peaches and some nice tartness. Sugary sweetness and some nice fruit juice notes. There are some woody and grassy notes as well with some slight white wine notes.

Taste starts off with some nice sugary notes. Peach fruit juice and some yeasty notes. There is some nice tartness that kicks up near the middle and tappers off a bit as it finishes. There is a nice crispness and dryness to the finish but with some nice flowery sweetness. Awesome brew.

This is a great fruit lambic easily could be one of my favorites. Great fruit flavors and sweetness. Awesome (735 characters)
