16 oz. bottle.

Clear, dark gold color. Medium sized, white head. Lively carbonation.

Aroma was peaches and roses.

Taste was...peaches. Vitamin C/acidic/tartness in there. Herbal and grassy character as well - surprisingly bitter & lingering in the aftertaste. Some honey flavor.

Medium body. High carbonation. Very sweet.

Good if you like peach. My wife really enjoyed it. Not really my type of beer - more like a peach soda.

This is most likely the beer that my fiance and I will be toasting with at our wedding since I'm a beer geek and my fiance is cool enought to let me toast with beer instead of champagne! We will be using fruit lambics since everyone (even wine drinkers) tend to like them.

A - Hazy golden brew with a two finger head that falls to a solid cap and leaves tons of lace on the glass.

S - Yeasty peach and apricot muffin aroma. Light, sweet fruit. Much more fruity, and less beer-like than some of the other Lindemans fruit lambics.

T - Again, lots of yeasty bready warm peach muffin flavors. Peach and apricot scones. Delicate and pretty damn complex, but WAY TO DAMN SWEET.

M - Medium to full bodied with a nice sour twang of acidity. Refreshing and palate-cleansing.

D - This is more drinkable than Lindemans other offerings, and it is more beer-like than the Kriek, Pomme, or Framboise. An extremely refreshing, but cloyingly sweet brew. I like lambics for their tartness and complexity, and this lacks both of those important compnents.

Pours a clear bubbly orange to gold with a bright white head. Slight funkiness in the nose with just a hint of vinegar and a lot of juicy peach aroma. Taste is sweet and sour peach with just a hint of funky yeast and even less of a beer like malt backdrop. Tartness helps balance it to keep it short of cloying, but it could still be a bit less sweet overall. Comes off much like a peach spritzer with a nice bubbly body, that is easy to drink.

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.

Pours a hazed golden orange with a fluffy beige head. Peaches and sweet apples dominate the nose. Some gariny notes, but nothing that sets of any bells that this is really a lambic. Extremely sweet flavors of peach with a slight bit of green apple tartness in the finish. Too sweet for my liking. I'm sure sugar is added. I suppose it good if you like peaches and have a serious sweet-tooth.

12 fl oz / 355 ml brown glass bottle with pressure cap over cork served into a Brown Palace mini-hefeweissbier glass in high altitude Castle Rock, Colorado. Reviewed live.

A: Pours a two finger head of light cream, okay thickness, and average retention - though the ABV is low. Colour is a clear gold.

Sm: Light sourness and yeast, bacteria, with some funk overshadowed by peach. Very pleasant and inviting. Maybe slight apple.

T: Peach and sourness, with a cidery apple-esque finish. Very nicely balanced, without too much sourness to compromise the balance. Not too yeasty. No alcohol comes through (not that I expected it to at 4.00%). Not extract based like some bad lambics. Well built for its aims.

Mf: Smooth and wet, with a more lightly dry and coarse finish. Near perfect considering the flavours.

Dr: Very drinkable: ALL GIRLS LOVE THIS BEER (and Allagash White). I'd definitely have it again; it may be best out of the bottle rather than on draught. It's a bit too cidery - especially on the finish - but it is a refreshing little beer.

Poured into a Williamsburg Winery wine glass.

A: Pours a slightly cloudy amber color, with a 1.5 finger white head, featuring average retention and good lacing.

S: Very strong peach, some funk, and a bit of a noble aspect.

T: There isn't much to the beer apart from peach and tartness. Despite only consisting of a couple notes, both flavors here are pulled off well. Very easy to drink.

M: Light bodied, with an incredibly smooth finish. Lots of carbonation and very refreshing.

O: This is great for someone who doesn't like beer. I don't love this, but it's pretty good.

Do they really call these beers? Tastes like a lite wine. Smells like a peach cobbler without the cinnamon with a spice and yeast nose. Hazy orange color a lacey head. Sugary sweet that tastes much like a hard candy. Peach taste dominates here. Yeast aftertaste is strong causing a dry, chalk-like finish. Good mix of sweet and sour, but perhaps a little too sweet.

1cm of fizzy white head is dirty around the edges. The clear gold beer has some orange to it. Nose is extreme peach: tart, not too sweet. Good. The front is full of sweet, perfumey peach flowers. The middle is a thick peach syrup. The finish is sugary sweet. There's a little tart funkiness, but not enough for me. Not bad. It's still too sweet for me, but definitely better than the Framboise.

Hazy light caramel orange colour with a short cap of white foam composed of bubbles of mixed sizes. The head quickly fell to a coarse ring leaving a smattering of lace (subsequent sips produced a lot more fine lace). A little funky barnyard aroma with some earthiness, ripe peach, and very mild pie spice. Pretty nice! Very sweet and syrupy, kind of cloying, with lots of peach flavour and mild tartness. That pretty much sums it up. Medium carbonation with a heftier body than expected, palate coating initially but slightly drier by the finish. Fairly creamy texture. Not a bad entry in the Lindemans line. I really enjoyed the aroma, but was let down a bit by the heavy sweetness, which limits the drinkability.

I enjoyed this beer from the comfort of my own living room. From 750ML bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Orange/yellow color. A nice frothy head and lacing.

Smell: Smells of fresh peaches and reminded me a woodchuck apple cider beer.

Taste: Tart and sweet. Made my mouth pucker, but in a good way.

Mouthfeel: Tingly with a sweet, fruity aftertaste.

Drinkability: Not too shabby for my first peach beer. I wouldn't consider this a session beer for me, but worth trying.

Peachy through and through, from the appearance to the nose to the flavor. This was the thickest and least carbonated of the Lindemans beers I've had yet. It made the beer seem a bit syrupy, so drink this one very cold. Cold is also useful to combat the sweetness, which is boarderline too much. I've always liked the base lambic, and the peaches accent it very nicely. This beer is refreshing and pairs good with a wide variety of food. Not one of my favorite lambics, but very good nonetheless. Recommended. Lindemans is a great family of beers to introduce to people with a "macro"-scopic view of the beer world. Cheers!

Wow, I really don't like this beer. It smells like peach squash (peach concentrated juice): synthetically fruity and artificially sweet. Tastes the same way. Sickly and way too much. It tastes like the fruit juice concentrate you buy and then dilute with water, except here whoever's mixing the drinks got the ratio all wrong and didn't put in enough water. I'd strongly recommend avoiding this.

Looks very much like fresh juice, especially apple. Nice miniscule carbonation bubbles that have packed their bags and are headed to the top. Very light head and minor, spotty lacing. Aroma is full of overripe peaches and some apple juice. Taste is similar to aroma, with overripe peaches being the star and a back of apple juice and a touch of yeastiness. ABV is 2.50 which makes this very sessionable. A little to sweet and no where enough tartness for this to be called a lambic, IMHO. .Oversweet, but still a nice sipper !!

Golden orange, with a decent head and good lacing. Smells like fuzzy peaches, but subtle and slightly dusty, not bad. The flavor is heavy on syrup and sugar with a bit of peach, like the stuff canned peaches sit in. This is way too sweet for me but I like peaches so I wanted to give it a fair shot. Lindemans needs to add some peaches to Cuvee Rene, that would be awesome.

When poured into my glass, the head was very small with small-medium bubbles that quickly diminished. There was some fizzy carbonation present and no lacing. The nose was apples and peaches. The body was semi-cloudy and it was a hazy golden in hue. The flavor was sour, bitter, tart and fruity. The mouthfeel was oily and buttery.

This beer pours a hazy orange has a 1/2 finger white head with good retention and great lacing that clumps on the glass. The aroma is of tart apples and peaches. This beer is medium bodied, dry and champagne-like. I couldn't drink this beer every day but its nice to pull out for special occasions.

(Poured into a tapered strange)

A- This beer pours a bright crystal clear copper hue with a thin wisp of white foam that is perfectly smooth and then soon gone. There is a sea of microbubbles racing to the surface.

S- The in your face peach perfume aroma has hints of butterscotch that take on more of a light caramel syrup quality as the beer warms. There is a touch of white cheese rind and honey in the finish.

T- This beer is full of sweet peach flavor that is bright and artificial. The sweetness lingers and there is not much underneath that flavor.

M- The light mouthfeel has a scrubbing fizz in the finish with no alcohol heat noticed.

O- The peach flavor is so darn sweet but it is not as syrupy thanks to the big fizz. There isn't much depth in this beer but it is not really offensive to drink. However one is enough.

375 mL bottle with no freshness date. Pours a hazy, light orange color with a tall column of white foam that fades very rapidly to a nice sheen. Does not leave much lacing on the glass.

Nose is very strongly full of peaches and sweet cream. It leans toward sweet, but there is a bit of lactic sourness and some semblance of grainy malt. It smells pretty good, but not very lambic-like.

Not a whole lot of flavors here that make one think of beer, but it is fairly tasty. Sweetness is waaay too much and the mouth puckering sourness that I enjoy so much in lambics is toned down quite a bit. Carbonation is very high, almost to the point of champagne. The peach flavors are very prevalent, and I am guessing have some artificial boosting additive. It tastes pretty decent, but a bit too sweet and a tad too expensive for me to want to buy again.

Bottle the other day. Paired with a strawberry, mango and peach pie for dessert

Pouring clear orange with a thin, wispy, white head that falls off to a ring leaving minimal lacing, this looks pretty decent. The nose is moderately sweet in a fruity way, with plenty of peach character present. In some ways, this is like peach juice, with a little bit of lemon and just a wisp of barnyard present. Surprisingly complex, IMO. The palate, though, is a lot sweeter. That aspartame sweetness is prominent, rather artificial and takes away from the fruit character. It also hides any lambic character that's present. Sweet on the finish, this medium-light bodied beer is moderately carbonated and finishes sweet. Decent, this is better as an accompaniment with a dessert where it's lack of complexity can be hidden.

look: 3.5 | smell: 1 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Body is golden with a dash of orange. I'd be suprised if it wasn't artificial. Fizzy quarter inch head of off white champagne style fizz.

Smell: Putrid. I'm lucky to have tasted this, considering. It smelled like the asshole of a camel. Rotten fermentation, skunk, dirty beach smell, and stale urine. One of the more awful beer smells, ever.

Taste: Eating my words while I drink. The smell was almost enough to make me throw it out, and yet the taste is pretty enjoyable. A nice earthy and fungal taste consubstantiates itself with an overripe basket of peaches to give a satisfying flavor. Unlike other Lindeman's, this one isn't sweet beyond its own limitations.

Mouthfeel: This also saved the beer from it's fetid smell. Light and lively, this is the champagne of beers (sorry high life)

Drinkability: Bring it on! Because of it's low ABV and weak similarity to the beers I prefer, I don't have this often (if ever due to the price). But it is super easy to drink and enjoy, especially if you're in a wussy mood. Just don't sniff before you sip.

A good offering but lindemans has done much better. Once again this is not a traditional sour lambic. pours yellow pink and cloudy. smells like musty peach, no head. Taste is peachy but more like peach flavored yogurt. very smooth and goes down easy. A great gift for that special lady would include the lindemans cassis, framboise, pomme, and peche. They are tasty in a desert kind of way. almost like juices. I like em but they are by no means traditional lambic in taste and mouthfeel, despite being brewed in belgium. But dont get me wrong as far as taste i like these better than sour lambics. I know that is wierd but I just cant do sour in my beer.

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.

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.

Looks much more like a regular beer than Lindemans Kriek. Peachy orange color with a cloudy body and a thin short lived head. A bit too sweet and smooth for the style. No yeasty flavors and only mild sourness. A bit dumbed down for mass consumption in my opinion.
