look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

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%.

The color is orange, peach, cloudy. Foam is a white, fluffy, maybe not very high and not very durable but leaves a lot of whiskers on the glass.
The aroma of sweet peach, incredibly intense, next to the peach appear apples and gooseberries, it is brisk and fresh.
The flavor is very intense peach, very sweet but also sour. If the acidity is here on the site and makes you want to drink this lambic'a and drink is excessive sweetness slows its drinkable.
Saturation high, perfect.

Sweet / tart peach candy aroma and flavor. Faint, faint brett notes. Easily gulped down. Picked up at Beera in Sofia, Bulgaria. Would pick up again if available and the price was right.

Ice is very good. Sola, too sweet, like a beer made with ancient tastes like champagne semi-dry, with a style that does not suit me. That if, with ice and cool is very good.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

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.

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.

Shared this one with my GF.
Pours a clear orange color with a small white head with almost no retention.
Very bubbly body also.
There is the sweet fruity aroma, although not really peach.
The taste is extremelly sweet and fruity. It also has the quality of cider or new made wine.
I didn't really like it, but my GF loved it.

Appearance: Cloudy; peach colored; no head

Aroma: Sour; fruity, but more flowery than peachy, but can't place the aroma

Taste: Zippy, malty and very sweet/syrupy; peach flavors throughout, but more like candy; way too sweet; tasty, but more like a dessert wine than beer

Remarks: Did not score A, T, S, M at that time; disregard those scores

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.

Pours a clear, gold color. 1/5 inch head of a white color. Decent retention and slight lacing. Smells of slight peach, sweet malt, slight pale malt, sugar, and slight tart notes. 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.

A: Beautiful rich golden body, slightly on the orange side. Champagne-like layer of fizzy white bubbles. Bubbly and lively. Best appreciated from a champagne flute.

S: Peaches, peaches and peaches.

T: YUCK! Like peach perfume. Unnatural tasting. Very sweet. Poured it away after a few swigs.

O: One for the ladies.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hazy, apricot color, had to work to get the head: white, creamy, not long lasting.

Smell: peach overwhelmed; slight sour.

Taste: Peach with so much sweetness that it has almost a soda-pop taste, redeemed by the slight sourness of the lambic kicking in at the middle. Apricot nectar notes, slight malt, lambic sourness.

Mouthfeel: creamy, effervescent, pleasant.

Overall: We split on this: husband says pleasant, wife says too sweet. Husband says: great refreshing beer after mowing the lawn, not much alcohol so easy going down. Wife says: have it for dessert with your cheese and fruit.

85th Review
Bottle to Lindemans Framboise 25cl flute
Best by: 02-09-2013

Enjoyed at Palais des Bières while visiting Geneva, Switzerland.

A: Clear golden hue. Single (pure white with a few bubbles) fingernail head on gentle pour.

S: Peach fuzz and peach schnapps. Hint of tangerine. More fresh, ripe peaches.

T: Mild peach flavor start to finish with a hint of citrus coming thru towards mid-palate. Not too sweet, but just right.

M: Light body with medium carbonation.

O: Peach purée and that's about it. Almost boring, but I think it might have something to do with the fact this beer is only 2.50% ABV - this is almost a NA beer in my mind. Also, there is no sourness; however, I love peaches so this is the only saving grace here.

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.

A - A clear pale shade of apricot under a quick wispy finger of head.

S - Musty leather, peaches.

T - Sweet caramelised peaches. No trace of the 2.5% alcohol. Not much sourness. Refreshing.

M - Thin, yet has a syrupy quality. High carbonation.

O - The lack of sourness is probably not a good thing for a lambic, but the sweet peach flavour is agreeable. Nice, summery thirst quencher.
