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.

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!

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

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 there...it's better than the other peach one they make for the US.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4

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.

Served from a tap at a Belgian Beer room. Clear gold, with a nice white head. The aroma immediately hits, peaches. The taste is extremely sweet, and almost syrupy peach like. Mouthfeel is full, again almost syrupy. I felt this was more of an after dinner or dessert type of lambic. Also fairly low ABV.
Probably not for everyone, but I enjoyed it, and would consider keeping a couple on hand for pleasing different guests.

An easy drinking, simple, peach Lambic with plenty of appeal.

aroma: sour/spice/peach

taste: tart peach with a touch of funk and spice.

Could drink a lot of this - a summer picnic with friends comes to mind. This beer lets the peach shine. Would be a good introduction beer for someone who doesn't usually drink beer.

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.

37.5cl bottle. 28 Apr 2016. Pours a pale gold colour with a tall, frothy, loosely packed head which quickly reduced to a ring, leaving only a little lacing. Aroma of peaches, cider and musty earthiness. Medium sweetness and a pleasant tartness. Medium bodied, smooth, spritzy and a pleasing tart finish. I was a bit apprehensive about trying this one but I found it quite enjoyable. 8.

A - Poured into a tulip glass a slighty hazy deep orange colour with a couple of centimetres of white head that falls away fairly quickly.
S - Ummm, peaches. A light mustiness.
T - Funnily enough the taste has a pretty strong peach taste.
M - A little bit sticky sweetness with moderate carbonation.
D - Not a regular beer for me but it's something I would happily drink again.

25 cl bottle purchased from Beer Mania for less than two euros, poured into my new Grottenbier goblet tonight

A-Light and bright golden orange color, big 1 1/2 inch soapy white head that looked a little off for beer, no lacing, retention was not very good either
S-Peaches, sugar, sweetness, mild tart, sour candy, and bubble gum
T-Tons of peaches, very sweet in the middle with some sourness behind it but not much, peach flavors dominate this whole beer, rich with sweetness but not overly like a lot of their other brews I have sampled, still would like some more tart but not bad for how light it is
M-Sweet, slightly tart, and fruity mouthfeel, high carbonation for a Lindemans beer, still medium bodied at least though, taste lingers a good amount of time
D-Could drink a bunch of these little bottles, alcohol is super low, not overly heavy, sweetness would take a toll after a long time, but if you wanted a break from the acidic lambics out there, this would not be a bad choice

It seems like most of the Lindemans beers I enjoy more than others are not available in the states, this was actually quite good, especially for having such a low ABV, big peach presence in this one, far more than the peche, would like to drink again, recommended

Pours a lightly hazy pale yellow with a small white head. In the aroma, sugary, tart peach skin. In the taste, quite sugary and small tartness of peach skin. A small tart bite, but mainly smooth and medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry tart peach skin in the aftertaste. Kind of like a gummy peach ring, and it is line smell, taste, and aftertaste all the way through.

kind of a good beer, peach is really present, but so artificial that it's really difficult to say if it's real peaches or just aromas... It didn't look nice, to fuzzy, the smell is great for a fruit beer, and the mouthfeel is quite OK, not special, just an average taste of a good fruit beer. Drinkability is quite good as it's served really cold.

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.

Poured from a 375ml bottle into a wine glass.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy golden apricot color with a large, quickly dissipating white head that leaves only a few tiny spots of lace.

Smell: Apricot and apple backed up by slight funk and earthiness. A mild hint of peach and some mild tart citric smells.

Taste: Begins with sweet peach and a hint of granny smith apple, finishing with a more powerful peachy sweetness with a mild mustiness at the very end.

Mouthfeel: Lighter in body with almost no carbonation and a refreshing finish.

Overall: An interesting beer loaded with fruit flavors. I did, however, dock a few points just because the fruit overpowers almost all traces of the lambic. A good brew, though, and one I would drink again.

Poured from a 375 ml bottle into a Duvel Tulip. There's a bit of rust on the edges of the cap, let's hope everything's all right...

Appearance: Pours a nice, slightly hazy copper color with a bubbly one-finger head that recedes quickly.

Smell: As one might expect, smells very strongly of peaches. This reminds me of peach tea, that Southerners will be very familiar with (Although, judging from other reviews, there haven't been too many Southerners to try this brew). I really can't pick out anything else except sweet peaches. Smells good, though.

Taste: Tastes pretty mellow with some tart peaches coming out. As it warms up a bit, I'm starting to pick out some green apple. It's slightly sour, but agreeably so. Towards the end, however, it becomes far too sweet.

Mouthfeel: Highly carbonated and slightly creamy. Works very well with the style.

Drinkability: Well, at a measly 2.5% ABV, you could consume a lot of these, but I think the sweetness and sourness might just hold it back in this category. Still, it would be nice to have a couple of these on a hot summer day.

Overall, this is a pretty good beer, though it tastes very little like a beer. The peach is really, really dominant, and though it's not a particularly complex brew, it's still tasty, just a touch too sweet. I would definitely have this again if given the opportunity and would recommend it.

25cl bottle served into a Lindeman's glass in a cafe in France. Cost was 4.60 euro.

A: Pours a three finger head of slight cream, decent thickness, and good retention. Colour is a clear cloudy yellow.

Sm: Peach and barley. Moderate in strength.

T: Peach, souring hops curtailing the finish, and full pleasant barley. Very crisp and pleasant. The peach is wonderful. Complex, well built, and nicely balanced.

Mf: Smooth, wet, and creamy on the open. Complements the flavour of the body well.

Dr: Very drinkable, low ABV, and full of flavour. The price was rather high in France, but I'd certainly have it again at Belgian prices.

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.

The beer was lightly hazy pale golden with a white long lasting head which laced the glass.

The aroma was lightly peachy with a moderate wheat presence.

The flavor was definitely sweet and peachy with more light wheat and a bit of a syrupy nature.

The finish was slightly sweet with lasting peach presence into the aftertaste. The body was medium light and the beer had a moderate carbonation. A bit too sweet for my tastes but a decent peach beer.

Draft in proper glass at Garre in Brugge on 9/13/06.

Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of peach, sugar, sweet malt, slight pale malt, and slight tartness. Overall, decent appearance, feel, and body.
