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

Pours a clear medium gold with a nice head and leaves some lacing on the glass. The smell is of peaches and yeast. Taste is first of tart peaches and wheatbeer yeastiness. Sourness on the back of the tongue. Light, fruity and bubbly. Sweetness is well balanced by the tartness and yeasty "beeryness". Very drinkable and refreshing. (331 characters)

This not my first venture into the realm of the fruit beers and it won't be my last. Despite me being Darth Tyberious, Lord of the Dark Beer, I found this one quite enjoyable. I was thinking that with the weather getting warmer that I'd experiment with other lighter beers and I'm glad I did. Let's get down to the brass tax...

A: Champaign. Light golden color with a one to two finger head. Clear with visible carbonation trails.

S: Fruity sweetness without being sicking. A little tartness, a little woodsiness...

T: Not at all what I expected but enjoyable. Very light flavor but nothing really out front of overbearing. Light peachy sweetness up front with peachy tartness trailing.

M: Light and very easy on the mouth. A little bubbly but not as bubbly as champaign.

D: Very drinkable. Weighing in at 4% I found that I could finish the entire 750ML bottle easily.

The only thing that caught me off guard was the fact that this has a cork that requires a cork screw. This might show my limits but this is a first - I'm use to a cork that has a cage. I had to hunt down a cork screw. Regardless, very nice! (1,117 characters)

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. (777 characters)

Purchased at Bevmo in Pasadena/CA/USA.
A: Average looking carbonated beverage that contains alcohol.
S: Light peach aroma.
T: Vague peach taste. Sweet to drink. A little bit sour.
M: Great bubbles.
O: Light peach flavour. People who enjoy lightly flavoured fruit beverages should try Lindemans Pêche. (304 characters)

This is very good, but very sweet. It's like a desert beer. I split one of these with my wife and not sure I could handle anymore due to the sweetness. If you like sweet tasting beers though and especially peach than this is the best/lambic for you (248 characters)

i feel like i have been putting a lot o diclaimers in front of reviews lately but here it goes, i dont like peaches and this is only my 5th lambic, so deal..creamy baje beer with a hearty white head. looks lighter towards the bottom. smells of grass and peaches from a can. my best taste analogy is a peach creamsaver(i dont know if they really have one but work with me) with an acidic center. i dont know why i bought a peach beer, but i'd already tryed the rasberry one and was trying boon's kriek. also wood and grassy ntoes in there as well. my stomach feels like is is rotting from the inside out so low drinkability. mothfeel if very full, and thick, and syrupy, it hink this is part of the reason it reminds me of a creamsaver. (735 characters)

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 (303 characters)

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

Poured from bottle into oversized wine glass (no flute at the moment).

A- Hazy straw-wheat, and tons of lively carbonation. No head retention, but a nice Saturn ring that leaves slippery lacing on the side of the glass.

S- PEACHES! Lots of fresh sweet peaches, a tiny pinch of citrus, very aromatic.

T- Palate follows the nose on this one. Sweet peaches with a sour finish. Not too many dimensions, not complex with taste but a solid lambic.

MF- Light medium body, TONS of carbonation that tickles the tongue. The taste really hangs around your mouth.

O- This is a very sweet/sour beer, and I mean very sweet. I can only handle one bottle of this due to that simple fact that it is just way to sweet for my taste. I still enjoyed it very much. This is not my everyday beer at all, but I could possibly see myself trying more lambics in the near future. I spent about 6 bucks for a 12 oz. bottle so if you are "experimenting" it is a just above fair price imo. Still good in my book though. (996 characters)

Poured from a 355 mL bottle into a tulip.

Pours a golden color with a definite orange/rose hue. Very well carbonated. Small head with aggressive pour, about a finger of sand. Dissipates quickly, leaves no trace.

Strong peach in the nose, with subtle notes of wheat. Tart, but noticeable sweetness.

Immediate taste of biting into a fresh peach. The tartness is strong, but good. The sweetness finishes up without being too strong, but just compliments the tartness.

Very carbonated; reminded me of a champagne, but still finished smooth.

Very easy sipper when you're looking for something light and tart. not too much sour, not too much sweet. Great overall. (663 characters)

Thank Jebus!! Belgian brew has finally made it to good ole New Hampshire! The color of this brew matches with its fruit. Pillowy white head with good retention. Somewhat candyish peach nose with slight must. Finishes fruity with a slight bit of sourness. Would go nicely with the sunset and your significant other. (319 characters)

Deinitley a good beer, not too swell on the head retention, however an intricate lacing to follow.

The taste of peach blended very well with the aged lambic, and liek other tradition fruited lambic's, it was truly clear why lambic brewers stick to the2se fruits to begin with.

It was hard to tell where the peach stopped and the beer began. GREAT WORK. One of my favorite aspects of drinking lambics is simply being confused and thrown around in an ocean of creativity. (471 characters)

Poured from bottle at Eb's. Nice crisp clear straw color with good carbonation. Aromas of peach to be sure, and sweet at that. This is like candy water, peach flavored at that. You could easily polish off 5 or 6 bottles and not realize it until you couldn't walk straight. Karen loves this style. (296 characters)

WOW. This is one strange brew. I am not a fan of lambics but I take the brothers advice, and my own, and I "respect' beer. So, to achieve the taste of this beer, is a 'respectful' feat in it's own right. Super peachy, IMO-Not like any beer out there.

A- Color actually looks like a golden pale ale. Small, sporatic bubbles, almost champaigny. White small head. Quick head retention.

S- Peach bomb. Yeast excrement (the fruity kind).

D- Flavor wise: Good Consistency wise: Slow drinker. I would not want to drink more than one of these in a night.

Notes: I recommend that any beer enthusiast try a lambic at least once and this is a good one to try. (653 characters)

Hazy kind of appearance close to that of a heffe but not quite. Very little head and the smell of peach comes out but no smell of beer. Tasted a lot like a peach flavored champagne.

This would be a good starter beer for people who have not had beer before. It's also a good beer to have on a hot summer day while hanging out with some friends. (345 characters)

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. (660 characters)

Poured on tap at the Yard House in Long Beach (yes, I know, but my girlfriend wanted dessert). It poured a nice golden color with a quickly disappearing head.

In the nose were peaches, lots of peaches with a little it of beer and something else underneath. A truly remarkable smell.

The taste was likewise exceptional, bursting with peaches, sweet, but not overwhelming countered by a nice graininess and a finish with a hint of lambic sourness.

It felt lovely on the palate, smooth and drinkable. Very nice to find it on tap. (535 characters)

Appearance - Nice, clean, and light appearing amber Lambic. Very inviting, and moderately carbonated.

Smell - Wow. Sweet, clean, peachy, and fruity.

Taste - Tastes like drinking a peach soda with a slight ale flavor. Surprisingly nice and delicious

Mouthfeel - Nice and refreshing on the palate. Light and smooth.

Overall - Great Lambic, very refreshing and surprising that your are drinking and alcoholic beverage until it hits you. My favorite Lambic. These goes down quick and smooth. (493 characters)

This is the first lambic I've ever tried and I'm quite pleased. I have to say though, that this particular peach lambic tastes much better than it smells.

It pours a very nice looking light amber with a jolly old white head that settles down.

Smells light and somewhat fruity however, I find that its not as an attractive smell as other beers I like. Usually the smell is a tease indicating how nice a beer will taste. At least for me it is.

The taste is light, fruity with a hint of peach. Kind of champagny-winey, almost like a wine cooler, really nice. I shared this with my wife on Sunday night after the New England Patriots won the Superbowl. Patriot blood - it's in us no matter where we are! (711 characters)

Golden in color with tiny bubbles and a thin head.

Smells of tart peaches.

Tastes delicious. Sweet, tart peach flavor that is very pleasant and finishes with a mild sour taste that quickly vanishes.

Nice bubbly champagne feel in this lambic.

Drinkability is high imo. Its just a very refreshing beverage. (308 characters)

Capped and corked 750 ml bottle decanted into my chalice. It pours clear orange (peach?) in color with minimal head. Aroma is of peaches and little else. Taste is of peaches as well, more sweet than tart as a good peach should behave. Mouthfeel is thick, but not syrupy with crisp carbonation. Its was a nice dessert beer to accent my New Year's Day meal. (355 characters)

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

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. (768 characters)

Pulled this baby from my fridge after a late night attempt to find a nightcap hidden in the nether regions of the icebox...

Ripped foil off the top, pop the top and lo and behold, there is a cork inside. A fumbling dig through the utility drawer produces the corkscrew. This thing may have cobwebs on it, but it will work.

I uncork her and pour to a small snifter. Pale yellow orange color with a pineapple juice look to it. MMMM....I can smell the fruitiness. Forms a pretty good frothy head that proves to be the equivalent of a 98 pound weakling. Shows up talking trash and before you can turn from laughing with your buddies it has disappeared. Oh well.

Smells of pineapple and yeast. I take a hearty whiff and the late summer smell of peaches comes vaguely.

First gulp takes me back to early August summer evenings. Peaches, beer. Yummy. Tastes like a wicked fruit nectar brewed up by aristocrats as they enjoy an evening on the gazebo. Peach, pineapple. Fruit sugar and malt. The yeast comes through to remind you of her Belgian origins. Slight sourness on the back end the puts a cap on the sweetness nicely. Leaves a syrupy taste in your mouth. Post swallow is slightly bland.

I can imagine drinking this on the deck after a hot day working in the yard. The sweetness might make it slightly stomach-turning after a few glasses.

I would drink this stuff again. Its good and refreshing. More of a summer thing, I guess. (1,437 characters)

This is my first Lambic. And let me tell you it not what I expected.
First not sure why but the bottle is both corked and capped.
After remove the cork I got a great big burst of carbonation. Then on the first smell I was really confused is this beer or wine. Don’t get me wrong that’s not bad, once again just not what I was accepting. Defiantly could smell the peach also I caught a green apple smell.
Then the Taste, my mouth is so confused sweet, sour but very little bitter. Almost like candy or a sweet wine. It has a good body.

I will surly have to try some other fruit Lambics to determine if this is part of the style or just a fluke (652 characters)

I have little experience with Lambics and the style guidelines, that said I thought this was a fantastic Lambic. Poured like a champegne with a wonderful peach colored cloudy appearance. Good aroma of peaches with slight sour smell. Tasted wonderful, nice peach flavor but not overpowering. Maybe too sweet for some tastes, but I thought the sweetness was nicely balanced with the sourness which makes this style unique. Very drinkable, could have easily went through more bottles. A bit pricey, but thats to be expected with this unique style I guess. Wonderful beer for special occasions. (590 characters)

Pours a hazy light-orange with a medium white head that quickly disappears. Looks almost like a witte. Smell is peaches all the way. Really does taste like peach soda, as others have said. However, it is (unexpectedly) really delicious. This is a very good fruit beer, but if you are looking for a real beer, this will leave you asking, "how is that considered a beer?"

I enjoyed drinking this, but will probably not buy it again due to the price and the fact that it does not really taste like a beer. But hey, I guess that's not really what a fruit beer is supposed to be like. (580 characters)
