First time for me on a Belgium Lambic, and I must say I was quite impressed.

Smooth body, a very drinkable beer. Nice tart peach aroma. Indeed not a typical "beer-like" taste, smell, or feel, therefore don't drink it like you would a porter (i.e. a dessert-type beer, not a drink with "meat and potatoes" beer).

Excellent purchase (albiet pricey).

Mmmm I like my lambic. This one is not as strong as the raspberry I've had before and more refreshing and thin.

A- Barely transparent peach/beer light amber color with some carbonation.

S- Smells like peach.

T- Tastes like peach.

M- Feel is somewhat watery.

D- Very drinkable in an endless way

i was scared of this one, i have avoided this one for ten years, but i had tryed all the outhers so i figured why not try this one, i found that i have been mising out, this one is like peach pie in a glass, the lambic is nice and the peach starts nice and tart and fades into pure sweetness, i will get this one agan and agan for sure.

An excelent peach lambic. The beer poured a nice peachy golden color with a nice white head. The smell was very friuty and sweet, full of peaches and a bit of an apricot scent. When I sipped the beer the flavor of peaches exploded in my mouth followed by a nice dry sourness that counteracted the sweetness perfectly. Definantly a great desert beer and one that may cross over some non beer drinkers.

A: Slight cream coloured head over amber liquid with excellent clairity.

S: Peaches and yeast.

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

M: Medium viscosity and a medium level of fine carbonation. A somewhat dry finish.

O: Extremely drinkable, this is the beer equivalent of biting into a sweet fresh peach.

Pour yields weak thin head. Body is bright vibrant orange. Smell is tart citrus orange with a twist of peach. I am also picking some clove and other Belgian yeast qualities. Smell seems to mostly be in the sourness. My first so I would say this is good. Has a super nice sourness with nice sugar sweetness mixed in. I think I get more sour apple than peach myself but it does show up in the aftertaste. For a newbie I would compare it sour patch kids or those candy peach rings. The flavor hits immediately and stays the same throughout. It really holds up for the long run. I think I would enjoy it more if the carbonation was amped up a bit but still it feels pretty good on the tongue. My first sour, or at least I think it is, actually delivered on what I expected. It really tasted exactly as I imagined it would and that does not happen often with beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A- Cloudy Orange color, 3 finger head that fades very very slowly. Volumous Carbonation that dies into a slow moving carbonation. Lots and lots of lacing and sticking.

S- Smells like peaches, almost like orange cream soda but with peaches

T- Sweet peach tartness with a hint of beer. Wow lots of peach flavors that seem to just pop in your mouth.

M- It's an elegantly smooth body. Just medium with lots of bursting from the carbonation.

D- I could have one of these 25ozers on a good night. That's it though. Too sweet for anymore. Great Lambic though.

I've pretty much enjoyed every lambic I've had and this was no exception. The Peche pours a cloudy dark orange. It smells very sweet and you can definitely detect the peach flavor. The taste is similar. Very sweet peach flavor with just a bit of a sour finish. I highly recommend this lambic.

This was definately a fine drink. The first lambic style of beer i have had, so this was a new experience. It was a nice dark peach color, with a inch or so of a head that quickly fizzled down to nothing. There was some cloudy sediment at the bottom, which when poured in made the beer pretty cloudy. What can i say, it smelled and tasted like peaches. Lots of carbonation off of the pour.
Tasted pretty aciddic, the whole tounge was feeling this beer. Definately something i enjoyed.

Pours a cloudy, brass tinged orange robe topped by a short creamy white head. The head drops shortly but keeps a creamy collar and whispy surface covering, as well as leaving some nice lace. The aroma combines a very nice, authentic fresh peach that's not overly sweet with minor flashes of lambic character (light lactic sourness, very mild mustiness). The body is light/medium with a very fine and restrained carbonation that gives it a creamy mouthfeel and adds to it's smooth fruitiness. The flavor is, again, quite realistically peachy with a ripe, juicy, sweet fruitiness that's backed by a tart edge. Some minimal lambic character becomes apparent in the long finish and adds to it's complexity. Of the Lindeman's fruit lambic line-up, this one seems a bit more delicate and a little less sweet, and therefore has more versatility. I works equally well as an appertif or dessert beer, and would be splendid at almost any time during the summer (think sunset on the beach)! And although I normally lament the lack of more aggressive lambic character (acidity, mustiness, barnyard) in the Lindeman's beers, I feel that actually works here. Quite refreshing and highly enjoyable. It's well worth seeking out and should not be passed over for the Kriek or Framboise.
