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

Hazed orange body, low carbonation, white head with good retention and great lace that leaves clumps on the inside of the glass.
Tart/sweet smokey peach scent with notes of green apple skin.
Taste of big peach flavors, very sweet with undertones of smoked fruitiness.
Medium body and decent coating, a prinkling sensation on the tongue.
Good drinkability as a result of the low ABV and the sweetness never gets to be too much. Excellent brew.

I have passed by this numerous times before finally buying it at a restaurant.

Extremely cold when it arrived to the table so I let it warm for about 10 minutes.

Poured an orange-ish gold with a light layer of head which quickly dissolved.

Smelled of...peaches and maybe grapes.

The taste was a shocker. I actually enjoyed it. It was extremely refreshing and went very well with the ribs I was enjoying. Fruity and carbonated nicely. I would have had another but the prices were out of line.

Very surprised by this beer but it has opened my eyes to the Lambic style and I know that is somewhere I would like to venture to. This would also be a great way to get someone into another style of beer.

Bottle at Chancey Smith's in London, ON- A hazy yellow pour, is topped with a frothy eggshell cap that leaves nice lace. Full on fresh peach aroma, some yeast, tart citrus, smells inviting. Tastes sweet and tart. Lots of peach of course with a tart citric component that balances the sweetness. A bit of hops lead to a grassy finish. Very peachy and not overly complex, but refreshing and enjoyable. Thanks for the bottle Milos!

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Light/medium bodied, hazy apricot color like unfiltered cider, with a nice white head.

Aroma is mild, peaches with a tart earthy overtone.

The flavor is very definitely PEACH. It starts sweet but not quite like peach soda - more like a peach cobbler, as it is quickly followed by a very pleasant tartness and a yeasty/biscuity overtone, finishing slightly sour for a nice clean finish that leaves you wanting more. Definitely a desert ale, either stand alone or with an appropriate fruit dish.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Looks like apple cider with a thin white head. Mostly clear, little visible carbonation, and decent lacing.

S - A little sour from the yeast esters, sweet funk, ripe peaches, and dry wheat.

T - Very much sweet with a strong fermented peach flavor that is nice and juicy. Slight dryness/sour yeast at the end. Finishes tart with a full peach mouthfeel.

M/D - Champagne-like texture and carbonation. Semi-tart on the palate but a huge mouthfeel from all the carbonation and the peach flavor. Very light and refreshing and the low ABV makes it extremely drinkable.

Great morning beer!

Poured from 750 mL bottle into cervoise.
A: Pours a clear orange with high carbonation producing a thin bubbly white head. Fair amount of yeast sediment particles float about.
S: Peach, citrus notes, and hint of oak. Straight-forward, but nice.
T: Peach, candi sugar, hint of yeast and oak. Pleasant and refreshing.
M: Light body, effervescent. Smooth and slightly oily feel. Very pleasant.
D: Highly drinkable...able to be guzzled. Wonderful summer/picnic selection.

Pours hazy gold. Dense head. Aroma peach is also a strong flavor element that covers malt/hops. Although the peach is very dominate it was not objectional ( I like peaches). Medium body and dextrinous mouthfeel. Strong carbonation make this sweet and fruity Lambic great with a dessert.

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....

Going to the country going to eat a lot of peaches. Or drink a lot of peaches. Im not sure what else to say about this beer except its a lambic and tastes and smells like peaches. So if you'd had the other flavors, just substitute peach for whatever other fruit you've had. This one is tasty.

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.

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.

A- Pours a nice gold color w/ a beautiful, bubbly two finger white head. Excellent carbonation and lacing on this brew.

S- Umm... Peaches, although there's a little funkyness to this one as well. Not bad, but it adds to the character of the nose.

T- Actually a very tasty brew. The sugar has to be off the charts, and the peach comes through- although it's not overpowering. Aftertaste is nice and mellow. I actually really like this beer a lot more than I thought I would. For the style, it's really nice. There is a little earthy funkyness, but it's minimal and adds to the complexity of the beer.

M- Somewhat tart, but very sweet at the same time. Feels like I have a mouth full of sugar in my mouth. Not that that's a bad thing.

O- Nice brew. Not my favorite style, but this is a tasty beer that would be refreshing on a hot summer's day.
