look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 5

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.

Served from their champagne 750 bottle into a tall pint glass.

Appears a beautiful golden apricot with a foamy creamy head that doesn't easily subside.

Smells delicious and like tart Bretty peaches.

Taste is amazing. Sweet but not cloying. A "realer" taste than their other fruit beers. Cant pick up much malt or hops.

Mouthfeel is really nice. A bit tart and the Brett comes through. Finishes smooth and slightly creamy.

Overall an amazing beer and one of my favorites in the fruit genre.

A - The bottle is corked with a cap in a dark green bottle. The beer looks like a squeezed peach! Carbonation is in full effect. Clear on the verge of being cloudy but what else would you expect a peach to be?

S - It smells like sweet aged wood or a sweet cork but not like peach. More wood/cork smell than anything else.

T - It tastes similar to the way it smells. Has a non traditional peach taste that makes your mouth salivate.

M - Your mouth will water for the after taste. You can taste the peachy cork it seems like. Leaves a very sweet peachy type taste.

D - This is a specialty beer to me. I could drink this all day but would expect a sour stomach after a few bottles. This would be great to serve to a group or someone who doesn't like a "typical" beer.

Smell- sweet, peaches

Taste- like the smell, sweet, tarty, peaches

Mouthfeel- medium body

Beautiful honey colored brew with a soft white head that leaves Belgian lace on the glass.

The aroma is sweet and fruity.

The flavor and mouthfeel together are just about perfect. A velvetty smooth sensation that has oodles of fresh sweet peaches, a bit of tart tang but mostly an absolutely delectable kind of perfect sweetness that is neither cloying or hesitant. Just perfect.

I do recommend drinking this beer at a cool but not cold temperature. I've had it on tap at bars before and it was too cold and lost much of the flavor and feel on the tongue, but right now poured out of a large (750 ML) bottle after just a little while in the fridge, it is truly world-class.

Most definitely the best fruit beer I've ever had, and quite possibly one of the best beers period that I've ever drank. I highly recommend this as a truly spectular special occasion beer.

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Pour/Appearance: Thin head, rich amber in color and relatively clear.

Smell: peach, apple fruit bouquet.

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.

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.
