This happens to be the only beer my wife will drink on a regular basis and she frequenly requests I purchase it for her.

Pours a partially cloudy orange color that forcefully produces little to no head. Really only a penline of white lace is visible around the perimeter of the glass reminiscent of a head. Lots of carbination in this beer with a light mouthfeel. Sourness dominates the taste both upfront and in the finish but also has quite a bit of peach sweetness as well. The nose of this beer is both sour from the yeast and sweet from the peaches.

Smaller bottle, classy with foil, cork and a cap. Pours slightly hazy, orangy, amber. Tiny bubble film remains after a minute or two of the pour. long stringy, relaxed lacing on the glass. Nose is fruity, sweet and delicate. Lucious melons, peaches, fruits of a thousand nations flow in the glass. Not nearly as sour as some other Lambics I've tried, this one is sweet and tasty. Great with desert, berries, ice cream etc etc.

(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.

After drinking lots of Bud last night with friends, I needed a beer to start my day off right. This is where Lindeman's Pêche comes in. On to the beer:

Poured into a stange, the color is a faded orange topped by a fuzzy white head. The flavor in this one is pretty straight-forward, some peaches, balanced by some sourness, with a trace of malts. Did I mention it's delicious? Who needs orange juice for the morning when you can serve yourself a peach lambic? I'll definately have this another time, but it's a little pricey to have everyday.

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.

Poured into my Lindeman's Stange/Pilsner glass.

Pours a 1 and ½ finger head that doesn't last very long. Leaves some splattered lacing. Color is a slight hazy honey orange.

Aroma: Very sweet and tarty. The peaches are very present. As well as some other berries. I really can't distinguish anything else.

Taste: Just like the smell, very sweet and tarty. This definitely doesn't remind of beer. More like a juice/wine. But it is pretty good. Pale malts hit the palate and then all the peaches come around. Grapes are present as well. There is also something that is lingering in the background, but I can't place my finger on it.

Mouthfeel; Very, very tarty. A tad crisp. Medium bodied as well as medium carbonation. Ends with a fruity dry aftertaste.

Overall, this was my first lambic and I really enjoyed it. This 25.4 oz bottle went down easy. I will be trying the other ones. I could see these being enjoyed any time of the year as well.

Poured from a bottle into a Lindemans flute.

Appearance: Pale golden body with a crackling light head and a bit of lace.

Smell: Big fruity peach and sour lambic aromas flare my nostril.

Taste: A straight-forward tangy lambic. Peach notes and some yeasty funk are there in the flavor profile, just a tiny pinch of alcohol is noticable and light grains. Gueuze like sour note tempered by mild soft peach skin.

Mouthfeel. High level of carbonation, spritzy, semi-dry, almost like a soda.

Overall: A solid lambic with peaches added, not my favorite from Lindemans but still very tasty.

Review from notes.

A: Pours a clear golden color with a small white head that does not last long. No lacing at all.

S: Reminds me of peach ring candy. Lots of peach and candied sugar, extremely sweet.

T: Tart peaches, lots of candied sugar. Slight funk to it, but the sugary peaches dominate.

M: Light to medium bodied, on the sweet side, and more like a soda than a beer.

O: Really, not that bad. It tastes good, and in the end, that is what matters most, but not something I would seek out often.

Plenty of head, great peach coloured body. Full of character. Another Lindeman's product I'm tempted to mark as the highest rated fruit beer I've had. Good aroma, well present. A gritty, rippened fruit flavour. Flavour well developed, candy like taste - only authentic! Well suited for anyone's taste in my opinion

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass. Had many of these time for a review.

Small white head that falls quickly. Simple orange amber body, with a cloudy body. Some nice uprising carbonation occasionaly, pin head sized, some sticking to the glass. Not much of a collar at all, put top puck leaves a simple small lace in the middle. Looks nice.

Smell is a candied peach. Sticky, with Belgian style malt/yeast whatever that thing is I find so often on Belgian brews. Candied sweet, fun, simple... nice.

Extreme sweet peach taste, with a hint of tart on the finish. Mouthfeel of sweet kool aid quailty. Sticky, somewhat syrupy texture, which is not neccesarily a bad thing, but not a preference for myself.

Overall though easy drinking, fun simple, super easy light abv, candy like beer. Truly a peach in a glass dream lovers beer.

A: Poured a bright, clear, beautiful golden peach with a fluffy white head.

S: Upon first opening there were notes of lingering apple juice. On the nose was a fresh , sugary peach aroma that was soft and perfumy.

T: The initial flavor was sweet fresh sugary peaches. The palate was very crisp and clean on the finish. The beer was nicely balanced and flavor is sweet .

M: The mouthful was light with a soft carbonation.

D: Drinks like peach flavored juice with almost no alcohol detection at all. Drank exceptionally smooth and clean. a tad sugary sweet which may limit multiples.

Neat well, peach colored pour, white head on the top, 1", looks nice. Aroma of peaches and sugar. Nothing really offered up in terms of tartness or sourness from this. Pretty much every lindeman's I've ever had with the exception of the cuvee rene gueuze works out this way. The peach is a nice juicy aroma.

Taste, appreciable peach, but also significant sugary content. A little bit of tartness develops on the palate. Wheat is perceptible. Peach is strong, like the pimp hand. The downfall is just the massive sugar content, and it is oh so prevalent in the mouthfeel, like you're drinking a peach lemonade or something, but without even the tartness of something like lemonade can bring. I like it more than the other sugary lambics lindeman's offers, but I think this would just be so good if they cut down on the sugar and amped up the tartness in these.

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.

Poured from a bottle into a flute, the beer is a bright, orange-gold coloring with steady carbonation and a frothy, bubbly, bright white head. Aromas of rich, hearty peach, with an effervescent tartness that borders on sour. The nose is light enough that it avoids being overpowering like some Lambics. Flavors of subtle roast with a peach flavor that honestly tastes like fresh pureed peaches. Very authentic and balanced. Wow. Smooth bodied, light, and crisp, making it very easy to drink. The aftertaste is subtle rich and sweet peach, with a slight linger after the clean, smooth finish. Very easy to drink, and very tasty.

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.

Pours a golden blond color with minimal head. Aroma is similar to smelling a ripe peach. Succulent and juicy on the nose. Taste is similar. Tart, ripe and very much like a peach. Smooth aftertaste that makes me wonder where the peach fuzz is.

Maybe I gush too much over beers like this. However, it's not often that you find a fermented fruit beverage that beats the pants off of hard cider. Lambics are almost not like beers to me. Definitely drinkable though!

I split a bottle of this (corked, capped, and foiled) with my better half. The beer is hazy gold color with a wet foam that coats the glass while fading on the liquid. The aromas are fruity and yeasty, it smells a little like Koningshoeven Tripel but with some peach. The taste is just a little sour, a trace of bite with the first sip but there's a lot of sweetness to balance the tart. The taste becomes a little addictive, this is really a better beer than I expected. The body is full with good carbonation. I've passed on this beer for years, periodically getting the kriek or framboise, but really the peche is the best of them so far for me.
