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

Pours a bubbly orangish gold.

Smells strongly of peaches and a bit of oak.

Tastes intensely of peaches. Very sweet tart flavor with a slight woodiness to it too.

Mouthfeel is good, the acid and carbonation mildly sting your tongue.

Drinkability, this is definitely a special dessert beer, it is to sweet to drink in quantity. (337 characters)

A golden brew topped in a small white head that is very bubbly and dies pretty quickly. The aroma is very sweet and fruity. The peach smell is not too intense.

It is very nicely carbonated and it is a nice crisp drinker all the way down. Peach flavors are more mild than those of other fruits in Lindeman's other products. It is a nice one, but it does not seem to have any tart character to it at all. It is a bit boring, but still enjoyable. I will stick with the framboise from these guys. (497 characters)

Poured a deep gold with some bubbles on top
Smell was of sweet peaches
Taste was good. It was sweet but not sickeningly sweet. There was a nice amount of peach flavor. Like a peach pie not like a raw peach if that makes sense.
Mouthfeel was a bit too carbonated but not enough to make it bad...just mediocre
Drinkability was ok... i liked the flavor and even though it was not overly sweet the sweetness might get to you after a few of these and the carbonation definately detracts. (487 characters)

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. (365 characters)

This lambic pours orange and fizzy. Definitely have to warm it up or it just tastes like peach soda.

There is a nice peach aroma that improves with warming.
The first thing you get is the sweet peach taste. Not nasty sweet like a dessert wine, and not quite as sweet as orange soda, but it's sweet. There's no hop bitterness, as you would expect. There is a obvious tartness and then a mild sourness that cuts the sweetness off. Really tastes like soda or cider. The sourness at the end really saves it from being one-sided though.

I had a wine and beer party where I offered tiny tastes of different wines and beers. There were a bunch of girls there who just don't drink, haven't developed any taste for tannins or hops. Just a drop of this peach lambic and they all loved it. So, in summary, nice sweet fruity drink that may be especially appreciated by the uninitiated. I have no doubt that less mainstream lambics must have more complexity, though I have not tried any. (981 characters)

This was a really sweet beer. Not as sweet as Lindemans Framboise. The color was a hazy watered down orangish color. The smell was that of fresh peaches. It was very clean smelling. The taste was also very clean with a mild peach taste and a slight sourness and acidic taste. A most enjoyable drink. Im not a big fan of the sweet drinks but this one isnt too sweet, and that makes it an agreeable dessert drink. (411 characters)

I decided to try out Lindeman’s Pêche lambic after I recently ordered some of their Framboise for a female friend who wasn’t into beer but wanted to try something. Poured from a 12oz corked and capped green bottle into a champagne flute, this peach lambic had a lightly hazed wet straw color and a highly effervescent white head and a lot of carbonation.
The smell was of over-ripe peaches, a slightly sour funk and some yeasty malt. The taste was as the smell advertised: lots of peach flavor with an underlying pale malt taste and a tart, mildly sour finish. The peach taste seemed to have the cloying sweetness of overripe peaches and the tart bite from a not-quite-ripe peach. Either way, this brew was all about the peach. The feel was light, crisp and dry. Very refreshing.
I really enjoyed this beer. It would make an excellent dessert beer but does well enough by itself. A delicious fruit beer that brought back memories of growing up on an orchard where I could walk out and smell the peaches when they were in season. (1,033 characters)

Nice beer to find on tap, usualy arund Rochester its only the kriek. Poured in a lindeman's flute, which is a big plus for me. Had a smell spritzy white head woth a dirty yellow body full of carbonation. Smell was cool, with lots of bubblegum flavors and just a lingering hint of the peach. The taste was very refreshing with more peach, just a little of the musty funk of a lambic and a ton of sparkling champagne characteristics.There was also a good deal of dry tart body that helped make this very refreshing. The mouthfeel was very carbonated and usually I am not a fan of overcarbonation, but with a lambic it always seems to hit the sopt. Perfectly refreshing and always makes you question whether you are actually drinking a beer. Tasty even on a chillier night. (770 characters)

Translucent amber-straw color with virtually no head but some active carbonation. Peach notes are light and fresh and very appealing. As with other Lindemans offerings, the fruit and grain smells complement each other and meld nicely--a distinct difference from the tacky fruit beers on the market. Taste is unexpectedly sweet at the start, but the subtle tartness leaves no doubt that you're tasting genuine peaches. Grains are muted until the end, and even then the maltiness is quite subtle. Mouthfeel is very pleasant despite the sweetness; it is more clean than syrupy. This is another fine Lindemans lambic, but one is enough at a sitting. (645 characters)

The white head doesn’t develop much; it reaches a ¼ inch before quickly fading to a nice, tight collar. Ruddy-tawny-coppery hue, slightly hazy... it does look mighty nice. The nose is fresh peaches and equally fresh wheat with kisses of yeast… clean. Good potency. Inviting. The taste is much the same with peaches and fresh cut wheat… nicely tart, not very sweet. Rather juicy, very little funkiness, oh well. Complex enough. It is amazingly appetizing, palate cleansing. Dry finish. Medium body. Light carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel, very nice. This is damn good. There is always a time and a place to sip this one. The cost is prohibitive though. Try one. (661 characters)

The Lambic style was one I shied away from for quite sometime as I’m really not a fan of “Fruit” beers, well after seeing many great reviews about this particular Lambic, I decided I should try it, and now I must say “Lambic’s” have moved way up on the list of my favorite styles.

The color a light orange, peach if you like, beclouded, with the head insignificant in size, creamy in texture with an off white color, as it evanesces, a thin film of lace remains to seal off the glass. The aroma of fresh peaches, sweet yet tart, with a hint of yeast, oh so inviting this nose, what a “Hoot”. Front is ambrosial with a tartness at the sides, top is light to moderate in feel. Finish is piercing in its acidity with the peach flavor present till the very end, the aftertaste desert dry and semi-sweet. (810 characters)

Light orange color, medium head, noticeable peach nose. Very fruity, nearly overwhelming peach flavor. Sweet, yet there is a vineous under tone. Not very beer like, bit a nice taste. Full flavor. Mouthfeel is full and round. Expansive. Finish is full and round. Aftertaste is sweet and smooth. (293 characters)

This peach lambic poured a beautiful light golden color with a huge, frothy head. Trails of lace accumulated on the sides of the flute glass. Aroma was an almost one-dimensional onslaught of ripe peaches, with some acidic qualities thrown in for good measure. The first taste of this revealed the most sour taste, while subsequent sips provided a very fruity, sweet peach quality. Almost too sweet for my lambic interests, but a crowd pleaser nonetheless. Mouthfeel was prickly, clean and inviting. Due to the sweetness, it's not one that I can drink time and again, but it's a decent fruit lambic that most folks seem to enjoy. Note: This paired incredibly well with a peach and blueberry cobbler. (698 characters)

Pours to an orangish-pink color with a white head. It has a fresh, fruity, yeasty aroma with the peach aromas in the back. The flavor is very fruity sweet, with peach being the forefront of the flavor. It also has a fresh earthy, flowery flavor. It finishes very sweet. It is a light-bodied brew that would complement many desserts. A tasty beer. (346 characters)

OK, here comes the barrage of beer reviews of beers that I sampled at Dwarbis Bklyn BA BBQ.

Beer #1

This fruit lambic, poured a nice peach-y colour into my cup. The aromas were of peaches, barnyard funk, and horse blanket. The taste was of sweet and sour peaches. This lambic was very sweet and not very sour. The mouthfeel was nice and thick, but not too thick and the drinkability was great on a summer evening in brooklyn!

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). (354 characters)

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. (330 characters)

Poured an cloudy golden color, with a moderate head. Good aroma and mouthfeel, good carbonation. The sweetness in this is very dominate. Very mild to non existant tartness. Not what I expected a Lambic to be, but still a very enjoyable drink. Finished off very clean and peachy. This would be another good after dinner drink. (325 characters)

Well, reviewing this is more like reviewing wine than reviewing any beer. The color was golden, and there was no head. The smell was well, very peachy! The taste was very sweet, with very little hint of the lambic itself. The mouthfeel was quite smooth, as would be expected. One or two of these would be drinkable, although I think beyond that the sweetness would become too cloying. All in all, an excellent dessert drink, and a drink I would gladly give someone who normally doesn't like beer (495 characters)

This beer pours a very slightly hazy reddish golden with a very small clingy white head. The mouthfeel is rounded and almost syrupy. The smell is perfumey and slightly malty with a smell that I immediatley recognized from my childhood-canned peaches. The taste is perfumey peaches and overwhelmingly sweet. I could possibly enjoy this beer if the sweetness was halved. As it stands now it seems more like an overly sweet soft drink than a beer. (444 characters)

White head on pour leaves quickly. Yellowish/peach color with lots of little bubbles.. crystal clear (filtered) look. Sweet smell of fruit and a sharp hop note as well. Initial slight grassy taste followed by a peach sweetness and sweet malt. The finish is slightly crisp, bitter, and dry. Slightly overall too sweet. Medium /light mouth. (338 characters)

Deep Amber color and nice fluffy, if fastly fading head. The lace is clinging and sticky. Earthy cave-like and peach aroma with a hint of floral hops. Medium malt body and ample lemony hops. Definitely peaches. And not peach extract! Sweet and citrus bitterness. Caramel Notes. Earthy. Very Complex! (299 characters)

This is not quite as scruptious and delightful as the Framboise. I can't imagine how hard it must be to make this one, cuz peaches are nearly impossible to keep fresh and perfect. Peaches are one of those hit or miss fruits where if you don't eat it when its ripe it can be pretty nasty. Either to hard and not as flavorful or really mushy and way to tart, and of course spoiled. So I think with this Peche Lambic, it too, could probably be hit or miss. I also favor raspberrys over a peach any day, sooo.....
Color is a pale yellow and a fizzy, big-bubbly white head raised up the flute as it poured, the head thinned out fast leaving a ring of tiny bubbles.
Unfortunately this didn't smell like the fresh peach I was hoping for. It was funky, it's got a musky/moldy aroma that reminded me of bad peach skin, old strawberries, old apricot, lots of bacterial action going on, like it was trying to decompose itself?
Thank goodness the taste shined, its a clean, lighter sweet tang of peach and grape up front thats very strongly tart and peachy bitter. Then smoothes out much like a fruity wine and semi-mild.
Feel of this is full and heavy set, very hard to drink alot of it at once, its a big time sipper. I had a much harder time enjoying this compared to the Framboise. But it still makes for a good little dessert or night cap. (1,336 characters)

I didn't like this as much as the Cassis, but that's most likely a fruit choice. Pours a nice light brown color with a good head. Tastes of peach. A bit tart, and very fruity. Quite light on the hops. A nice brew. Very drinkable. A good lambic. My girlfriend liked it quite a bit. If you like peaches.... (304 characters)

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. (486 characters)
