Lindemans Pecheresse

A = Pours a dark orange with a thin foam head that dissapates into nothingness.

S = Smell of fresh peaches and orange peel quckly drenches the air.

T = Explosion of peach flavour that really blows you away. A slight tartness creeps in the middle followed by a dry bitter sweet finish. Wonderful.

M = Low carbonation allows you to fully explore the flavour. Just let it linger on your tongue before you swallow.

D = Very very drinkable.

Had this at Au Trappiste on tap, one of their many Beligans.

Pours cloudy and, believe it or not, peach colored. Smells of peaches, with some sour notes and the sort of yeast aromas one would expect of the genre. The head is thick and cloudy, and stays around long enough to produce a nice lace on the glass.

Tastes of peaches, some very agreeable sour notes, and very little maltyness. These contribute to a very fine and rich mouthfeel however. The sweetness is fairly well balanced, but by the end of the 50cl I was ready for something less sweet.

This is an excellent offering from Lindemans. One could equally relegate it to the realm of sweet fruity beers with limited appeal or one not to miss when found on the shelf or on tap. I will personally come back to the Pecheresse once in a while.

Poured to an oversized wine glass.

A: The body is yellow to orange with no head, having no lacing nor retention.
S: The aroma is very strong of peach and sugar, smelling like a kid's candy. It's incredible.
T: The taste begins with a Faro-like profile with an incredible peach touch. The end is just mildly tart and bitter, but it's intensely refreshing.
M: Body is medium. Carbonation is perfect. Alcohol is unnoticed. Bitterness and tartness are very mild.
O: This beer is incredible for a fruit lambic, over the top for me.

Thanks to JLindros for sharing. 2011 vintage

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice crystal clear golden hue with a thin halo and light wisps.

S - Aromas of pleasant lambic funk, musty cellar basement funk, bright candy peach, bright fresh fruit, cooked fruit and jam. Super aromatic.

T - Taste is incredibly sweet, super super syrup. Behind the sugar the peaches are there in all its glory, but getting to them is difficult. It's so simple syrup heavy that it weighs it down. The peach, once you find it is glorious.

M - Mouthfeel is somewhat syrupy and sweet, though there's nice carbonation.

O - Overall this beer is and was awesome until all the sweetness comes. Without that it's actually incredibly good, hell, even with the sweetness I'm still shocked at how good this is.

Pours lively, much like champagne with a very thin white head which dissipates seconds after poured. A nice golden colour with a shade of orange and very clear.

What an amazing nose on this brew, possibly one of the best I've come across. Smells very rich and peachy. Fantastic, enough to make me salivate for a taste.

The smell is followed up by the exact taste. Predominately fresh ripe peaches. This sweetness is balanced by a nice tart finish.

A nice light feel to it with lots of carbonation. Intense feeling generated on the tongue by the sweetness and carbonation ending in a nice tart finish similar to green apple.

A very nice fruity lambic, one that would be fantastic to have on a hot day. Very refreshing and bursting with flavour.

Best before Jun 2014, so probably 2011 or 2012 vintage, purchased in Belgium a year ago and carried it back here. Shared with rudzud.

POurs a very clear golden honey color with some floating particulates, soapy lacing too.

Nose is loaded with fresh peach, canned peaches, so much good peach, really surprising! Nice dank basement funk, not super funky but nice enough, light Brett funk almost cheesy notes, very faint touch of cork.

Taste holy shit sweeettt!!! I know their beers were sweet before, btu this nose didn't lead me to believe it would be sweet! This is like condensed apple syrup sweet, intense and candy like, Behind the crazy sweet sugar is a nice peach, canned peaches mostly layered in syrup, with flashes of fresh peach here and there. Little funk behind that, and a hint of cork, mild acidity too. FInish is like a layer of syrup over the tongue not going away, with a little tangy acidity onthe back end, and more canned peaches. It actaully gets quite nice behind the sweetness, and after a few sips my taste buds get used to it mostly.

Mouth is med bod and super syrupy, decent carb.

Overall it has so much good peach, canned and fresh, with a nice light funk, but that sweetness just layers of syrup, but behind that the peach is so good! Best beer from Lindemans I've ever had by far, just wish they didn't make them so friggen sweet!

Appearance: Hazy peach color with spritzy effervescence and a thin ring of foam.

Aroma: Intense aroma of peach, funk, some leather and tropical fruit. Very sophisticated.

Taste: So intense! The peach taste overwhelms everything else. Back notes of banana and some tropical fruit.

Palate: Spritzy, medium bodied, medium-high sweetness, medium-low carbonation. Finishes sweet leaving a lingering marmalade taste.

Overall: I'm afraid I'm in disagreement with my fellow beergeeks. I think this beer is a great example of craftmanship and has it's own place in the Lambic Ladder, in my opinion.

A: Pours a golden, apricot color with a thin ring of bubbles that fades pretty fast.
S: Smells like a peach smoothie/peach gummy rings. Tons of sweetness with just a trace of wood and funk.
T: There's not really a ton of depth here, but it's pretty tasty. Peach gummy rings, mango smoothie and that's about it. Much heavier mouthfeel than I'd expect for 2.5%.

25 cl bottle poured into a Lindemans flute because I can. Beer is yellow with a slight haze, high carbonation and a soft white head of tiny bubbles that leaves a lot of lacing on the glass. Looks excellent. There is also a chick with great side boob action on label with some hint of some ass as well. About the best beer label out there.

Mildly tart aroma, with a fruity peachness to it. Smells good.

Beer tastes like peach candy. It's sweet and clean with a strong midpalate fruit presence and a wet finish. It's a good beer but it really is like liquid candy. It's not cloying or overly aggressive / in your face. The fruit is's better than the other peach one they make for the US.

Purchased from the Mikkeller shop in Denmark. No cork in this like they have in most of their other lambics.

Appearance – A semi-clear light golden color with a light head and light lacing.

Smell – A light peach scent. Not nearly as peachy or as strong as their Pêche lambic.

Taste – A sweet peach flavor. I like it better than the Pêche lambic. Seems like a “dessert” drink.

Mouthfeel – Feels just a little syrupy, kind of like a fine dessert wine. Low carbonation. It’s goes with the taste.

Drinkability – Overall, I prefer this to the Pêche lambic, which was too peachy for me.
