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

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.

A - Golden peach color, frothy white head, excellent retention.

S - Smell is blasting with ripe peaches.

T - Taste has a gelatin like mouthfeel to it. Fresh ripe peaches engulf the palate, this taste was 10x better than any peach I have ever eaten, and I am quite fond of peaches. Just an immense amount of ripe peaches and it's lovely. Decadent fermented residual sugars, small barrel aged notes and tangy, sour, tart notes. Flavor is absolutely delicious.

This was one incredibly yummy lambic, and one that you should definitely try.

Lindemans Peche
750 ML green bottle
Served in a pilsner glass

Pours a cloudy, light yellow with a thin lace for a head that provides spotted trails of sticky lacings. Looks awesome in a flute or pilsner glassware.

The nose is incredible. Very stimulating to the senses. Obvious strong whiffs of fresh peaches and a unique, funky yeast.

Ripe and sweet peach fruitness. There are flavors that remind me of a peach cobbler; blending the juicy quality of fresh fruit and enjoyable dessert qualities. Sour, tart and sugary all together. Minimal hop presence.

This lambic is just way too drinkable. Perfect any time and any day of the week. I might be a tad subjective because I really like peaches, but this is one great beverage.

Plenty of head, great peach coloured body. Full of character. Another Lindeman's product I'm tempted to mark as the highest rated fruit beer I've had. Good aroma, well present. A gritty, rippened fruit flavour. Flavour well developed, candy like taste - only authentic! Well suited for anyone's taste in my opinion

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.

Pours what is best described as, well, a peachy orange. Nice big off white head.

Smells very much of fresh peaches, slightly tart.

Tastes pretty much like it smells, although the peach flavor is nowhere as dominate as their Framboise. Fairly tart and sweet yet crisp, with hints of malt and little hops noticable. Very drinkable and surprisingly well balanced.

Poured a hazy orange with an off-white head.
The smell was of - peach.
The taste was of peach with a malt/hop background. It was a very good combination. I'm not necessarily a big fan of lambics. But, this worked well. The peach with a hop background made it taste very good. It was like eating a peach while drinking a good beer.
I split it with a friend. We both enjoyed it. I could have drank it by myself - was looking for more.
Addition to notes:

Had as an occassional treat since reviewing - and consistently good brew...the peaches don't interfere with the "beer" qualities as much as some sweeter lambic fruits do.

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

A pale orange color with a good sized white head that leave a good amount of lacing on hte glass. Head dissapears rather quickly. Plenty of yeast particles floating around in this brew.

Very sweet peach aromas, with a wheaty sidekick. Some malt to round it out.

Wonderful light peach flavors. Not overly carbonated, with the same zingy wheat flavors as in the nose. Somewhat of a lackluster finish. And the RS keeps it from being in the high ranks of drinkability. But a good lambic if you're into the sweet style like this.

massive nose of sweet fruit and jam

big soft pink head

medium body - more than you would think

smooth mouthfeel, slightly sticky sweetness

great fruit forward flavor, just enough tartness to finish

search it out and compare to the bottle.

beats the more common framboise by a long shot

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,

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

Poured in a flute glass.

A: Pours a golden yellow color with a one finger frothy and fizzy white head. Very bubbly, almost like champagne.
S: Very sharp peachy notes upfront with a slight sweet and grainy smell.
T: Tastes very sweet and almost sugary with a peach/apricots/pears aftertaste that stays around for a long time. Very sweet--did I say that. Almost like candy.
M & D: Mouthfeel is sharp but kind of syrupy that coats your mouth with peaches. Drinkability is ok as a desert beer as the sweetness may be too much to handle. No more than one at a time here. Good change of pace however.

Emma really loved this one and says she could drink 5 right now...so I digress.

The colour is deep yellow. The minimal head (more like a ring) is white.

A flavour of peach marmalade dominates the smell. There are also some sour notes of sweet apples.

The taste is almost all apricot jam/marmalade. There are also some feeble earthy notes of cloudberries and honey melon. The aftertaste is sweet with minerals and some saltiness below the apricots.

The carbonation is strong with lots of small bubbles.

An OK fruit lambic, but maybe not one of the most complex ones.

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

Amber color, slightly peach colored, small head dissapated quickly.

Smelled strongly of peaches, although smelled a little stale.

First sip brought peaches from beginning to end, carbonation was strong making seem a little like champagne. bubbly, and fruity very sweet.

Peaches cover up any bitterness and carbonation plays on the palate.

Not an everyday beer, but on a special occassion I'd love to pop a cork on this for dessert.

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.

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

Attractive light copper pour with about an inch of fluffy, loose head that settles into a whispy veil, leaving very little lace.

Aroma is straight up peach. Very fresh, with a radient, honey-drenched floral note and hints of musty yeast and light minerality, like wet concrete.

Flavor is just dripping with fresh, juicey, sweet peaches. Not much else and that's just fine in this case. There are hints of lambic tartness and the trademark yeast componant. Hints of wildflowers, honey, and wet concrete add some complexity.

Medium bodied, sticky, and lip smacking good. Not more than one 750 per sitting, but it is very refreshing and quaffable due to the low abv%. Say what you will about Lindemans, they are great for what they are.

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

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.

From a corked bottle, poured into a snifter glass.

Poured dark with hints of orange and gold. Hazy, with a small white head that dissolved quickly.

Smell of peaches dominates the nose.

Taste is sweet, slightly tart, and full of peaches.

Very clean mouthfeel, crisp, & refreshing...like other reviewers to me this is like drinking a fine peach soda.

Very drinkable, but maybe only one at a time for me. More than one beer this sweet in a sitting might be a bit much.

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

Poured from a bottle into a flute. I intentionally poured a big head. Big bubbles are sticking to the side of the flute in the Peche body. Streams of tiny bubbles are flowing up from the bottom straight through the center causing the head to remain about 0.250" around the periphery. Very delicate. Nice laces. Body is slightly hazy and the color is like dark balsa. Head is white and also delicate.

Smells a bit like peach and a bit like Asti. Tastes like very sweet peach champagne. Not dry at all. Has some floral or rosy traces. Also, I get some mixed tropical fruit tastes. Overall pleasant taste. I like it.

Feels very light bodied, very cold, and of tiny bubbles.

Good and drinkable. I only buy singles of this, one at a time but very drinkable none the less.

My favorite of the Lindeman's offerings. Looks like a regular beer with its dull golden color with medium fizzy head. Smells like peaches with some hay in there and some nice Lambic notes. A bit of a tartness as well. Peaches are dominant and they control the flavors. It almost tastes like fresh picked whole peaches in here. There's a tart granny smith quality underneath which cuts the sweetness of the peach. Then there's a nice little acidic finish but the notes of peaches remains the whole time. Body seems fuller than any other Lindemans offerings and the carbonation is not overdone. Very enjoyable.

This lambic poured an orange gold color and the white head formed a ring around the edge of my glass that left little spots of laces. Smelled of a wonderful musky and dirty yeast with a little cranberry and syrupy peaches and a slight bit of mushroom. Tasted of huge buttery peaches and sweet cream with a slight sour snap to it. The wild yeast was present and blended delightfully into the fruit flavors livening up their sourness. Mouth feel was medium bodied and sticky with a light carbonation.

Pours a hazy golden with a thin white head that leaves nice lace patterns on the glass.

There is a lightly tart character to the nose that is joined by a touch of malt and a crate of peaches. What a sweet sweet nose--like an over ripe peach.

This is a very sweet beer. The fruit taste overwhlems everything else but that is okay. This is like eating peach candy--without the residual sugar in the mouth. Interesting.

Thie is a thin beer that is lightly carbonated and smooth on the pallate. Despite the sweetness, it is still eay to consume. Good stuff.

I could easily drink this beauty in the spring and summer with an assortment of light dishes. It is almost like a peach soda that has a fine balance of sweet and tart. Nice stuff.

A - The color is . . . peach. Hmmm, that's a bit surprising. Hazy as well. The head is small and dissipates quickly leaving a bit of lacing behind.

S - Peaches! Fresh peach odor. I really didn't expect this much peach. It's a good thing I like peaches! There is a bit of faint malt on the nose as well, but mostly peach.

T - Peaches! I really like peaches! It has a strong peach foretaste, reminds me of a peach jolly rancher a bit more than a fresh peach. The sweet peach flavor is accompanied by a strong tartness that follows through to the aftertaste - a peach tart, naturally. The aftertaste has a bit of more traditional malt character in it.

M - Highly carbonated and thin. Refreshing though.

D - Very, very drinkable. It is like a peach soda, without such a cloying sugar presence (sugar IS present though). Definitely a dessert beer, a light dessert of course, like fruit sorbet, not a tiramisu. This is delicious, if you like peaches, I recommend this. If you dislike peaches, then you would be an idiot to look for it.

750ml shared among friends, poured into champagne flutes:
A: Pours like champagne, nice thick head fades slowly leaving lacing on the glass as it goes down.
S: Citrus, apples, and then sweet peach Jolly Rancher.
T: Peach, tart apples, then sweet white grape juice. There's an alternating overpoweringly sweet/tart dry effect to it.
M: A little too syrupy for my taste, but that is slightly offset by the nice fizziness.
D: A little sweet for drinking more than a glass or two of (didn't finish the bottle), but this is really good. I like the Lindemans Framboise a little bit better than this, and could probably drink more of that than this in a sitting.

drank this new years eve at the suggestion of beerpanther.

the ber is orangey gold with a white head the quickly dissappears.
the aroma is of fresh peach juice and a hint of bacterial musty belgian funk. nice.
the taste is again of fresh peach juice. beneath the sweet and sour peach is the subtle complexity that the yeasty funk creates. very nice, the sweetness is not cloying and it is relativley dry.
full body with prickly carbonation.
good drinkability for such a sweet beer. overall i was very impressed. make no mistake this is a bit girly, but held my attention for the whole bottle. it is very good and worth a try.

This came from a small corked bottle from my grownup candyshop, shoreline beverage.

A - Poured a light orange, translucent. Bubbled like a champagne with a small 1/4" white head.

S - Smelled of dry sweet peaches and a little tickle from the c02.

T - Tasted excellent. Like a peach champagne. Maybe korbel. Slightly tart as it goes down but sweet in the beginning.

M - Nicely carbonated. Very smooth.

D - Could drink this like soda. Its very easy and pleasant to drink. Its flavor is something you just cant get enough of. Gives me peach burps, which are also pleasant.
