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

A- Crystal clear golden color with a big fluffy whit head. The head offered weak retention and moderate lacing. Weak retention = bad. Lacing = good.

S- Mostly sour apples (I think the peach combined with the sourness of the lambi makes it seem like sour apples . . . ). Definitely some peach notes as well. Maybe a little pear in there too. Basically, think white, crunch fruit with sourness on top of it.

T- Again, fruit is the dominant flavor here. I get more apple than peach again. Call me crazy, but the taste reminds me of bitting into an apple. There is also a little pear and plenty of peach along with it. There is a sour element to the entire taste, but it is balanced out well by the intense sweetness of the fruit flavors. I think the yeast did some really cool stuff here. The aftertaste is of fresh green apples and peach juice.

M- Light bodied, but a little syrupy at the same time. Strange combination.

O- Very interesting taste. The aroma and mouthfeel are a bit less than perfect, but the taste is really interesting.

25 CL bottle, with a label that would never be allowed in the States."Consumer avant de" dating of 20 Nov 2009. Pours semi cloudy ripe apricot, minor off white head and almost respectable ringed lacing. Nose of ripe fruits apricot/apple. This is a moderately tart beer, sweet/sour thing going on, notes of apples, ripe fruits, pears. worth a try, quality aperitif. Enjoyed during family trip to France this summer.

A 375ml green bottle (half-champagne) with a BB of July 2012. I've been sitting on this for a while; picked up from a supermarket on a trip to Belgium in October 2010. Love the art nouveau decoration on the label. Hope it's still OK....

Poured into a straight pint glass (I don't have a flute). A clear orange-amber colour with medium carbonation and a hint of floating sediment. Forms a decent head of white foam that hangs around for a few minutes before dissipating. Aroma of dry peach with a distinctive mustiness and a sour twang. Slightly sweet, with hints of vinegar, brie and a fruity tartness.

Tastes of sweet peaches with a dry, musty finish. Notes of sugar, tart fruit, faint green apples and a hint of tangy vinegar. Quite dry upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is light and sharp, though a bit thin. Lightly astringent. Aftertaste of sweet & sour peach.

Lindemans is known for making very sweet commercial lambic (ie. not the good stuff). This isn't actually as sweet as some others that I've tried, but I'm not sure if that's simply due to age. It has a mildly oxidised mustiness that suggests it's been left a bit too long - but as it's a lambic it's hard to tell to what extent this may be the case. At any rate, it's OK but no masterpiece. Too sweet and one-dimensional; oude lambics blow this out of the water. Drinkable if taken on it's own terms. Try it once.

Clear orange color with white head. Aroma has peach bubblegum and some fermented fruit juice. Taste has some mixed peach flavors, the natural but also the artificial kinds. Slightly tart but you also get the fruit sweetness. Medium body with crisp carbonation. One of the better sweetened fruit lambics.

Pours amber with a small fading head.
Nose shows peach and confectionery with faint funky notes underneath.
Peach dominates as a flavour as well, with lots of sweetness almost hiding a faint acidity and horse blanket character. A little cloying.
Could use a fair bit more carbonation.

Lindemans Pecheresse, lambic; stylish label on the bottle.
Peachy.

37.5 cl bottle, both capped and corked.

Colour orange golden, thin but persistent head, nice lacing, nice carbonation.
Smell of yeast. Also good amount of peach, obviously.
Taste similar: sour sweet of peach. A bit sweeter than I expected.
Nice and easy drinkable, refreshing sour and sweet, with the right amount of carbonation.

Overall it's pretty good. Mainstream beer in this style. Not too demanding.

37.5 cl Green bottle, poured into a large 'Corsendonk' stemmed tulip glass.

Golden threat marmalade colour with a pure white head on top.

The lambic sour smell was there, but the peach sweetness was also there in equal measure, so you had a weird mix of vinegarous sourness and an incredible sickly sweetness from the fruit.

The sweetness in the taste was overpowering at first, sickly and coying. There was a souring towards the end of the aftertaste, but this is one sweet beer.

2.5% ABV, I'll not be having another, but glad i tried it.

Strong nose of peach syrup and oxalic acid. The palate is very sweet, syrup and food coloring as desired fishing comes into its industrial power. In fact, this is just another soda pop with very little alcohol in order to satisfy the less demanding throats.

This one is generally reserved for me fiancee, however I decided to sample it for the purpose of curiosity.

Pours like a ginger ale / soft drink. It tastes like Passiona the aussie soft drink (i.e. passionfruit). Also a little like a bellini cocktail. I can only detect a little honey. There is no hint of alcohol - at 2.5%. This is a cracking beverage for those who want to take it easy, or are not big beer drinkers.

The only real beer like feature of this one is rather nice head it produces. But it wasnt too bad, although not really sour enough to feel like a lambic.
