look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Visual: The beer was a cloudy, glowing, autumn orange with hint of brown. It had a foamy white head that cleared rather quickly. There was some lacing.

Aroma: The beer smelled of ripe, sweet peaches, honey, apple, and dried apricots. It was also slightly floral.

Taste: The taste was great--it had pleasant, strong notes of peaches and tree fruits. It was refreshingly sweet, and easy to drink.

Mouthfeel: I felt that it had a light mouthfeel due to the fruity flavors and carbonation, but also a slightly full mouthfeel as well due to it's sweet finish. It had low-medium carbonation.

Overall: I really enjoyed this beer. It was refreshing and very easy to drink due to its sweetness. It reminded me of summer, and I thought that it would pair well with a lot of different foods.

A- Looks like a clear beer with a peachy hue

S-Wow smells like beautiful peaches. I love the smell

T-Tastes like a peach orchard. It's on the sweet side but not too sweet. I love it. I can't taste the alcohol just nice peachiness.

M- Feels good. Feels like a peach soda--smooth and decent carbonation.

O- Wow I love this beer. I can easily drink this all day long on a nice summer day.

Pours a lively, bubbly peach colored elixir into a snifter. Wonderful 2 inch frothy head that takes its time to fade.
Sweet peaches on the nose, with citric tones that's very inviting.
The same sweetness hits the tongue, some tartness bringing the whole peach flavor to the front.
Extremely drinkable, the low ABV together with the refreshing fruit notes, make this beer a truly unique experience.
Spontaneous fermentation is alive and well!
Simply delicious!
Highly recommended!

Well, this is probably my favorite of the Lindemans blended fruit offerings, perhaps only because it is so delightfully sweet and syrupy. Maybe it perverts the fundamentals of the lambic style by overpowering it with peach juice, but my palate agrees with its fundamental appeal.

It has a light mouthfeel, like a nice sparkling wine, but of course much sweeter than what you would get in that area. It's easy to go through a 750ml bottle of thise stuff without even realizing that you've started. Thankfully, its alcohol content is not outrageous.

WOW - who'd of thunk it - a fruit Belgian beer that is just awesome. This is no wine cooler nor is it a chick beer. This is a finely crafted brew that shows a real attention to detail. The complexity of getting a began ale to blend in flavor with peaches and not seem like one flavor is alienating the other. Excellent work.

The flavor is distinctly of peaches but the Belgian beer flavors are still there the hops and maltiness are perfectly blended with a delicate balance that they are more enhancing to the natural flavor of the peaches. If you haven't tried or have some BS reason to not try lambics - then give it up for this one. If you have tried the Kriek, Cassis or Framboise and didn't find these to your liking don't make a prejudicial opinion based on those. This is a unique flavor and stands completely on its own.

01/08/05- Purchased at Tower Market in San Francisco, CA

Presentation- 750ml champagne like bottle. No freshness date. Poured into my Lindemans flute like glass.

Appearance- Yellow-orangish sparky pour with a slight cream head which slowly fades away. Leaves minor lacing.

Smell- Wonderful scent of fresh orchard peaches. A bit sweet and a bit tart in the nose.

Taste- Possibly the best way to get my vitamin C. Awesome taste of fresh fresh fresh peaches. More sweet, almost sugary sweet. A tad bitter when swallowing.

Mouthfeel- Suprisingly full feeling for me. Maybe it's because of the sweet creamy texture.

Drinkability- This has always been one of my go to beers on special occasions. I bit sweet to slam a few bottles, but it's about as drinkable as it gets. Everyone I know personally loves this lambic.

Been meaning to try this and some of the other Lindeman's variations for a while now and finally got around to pulling the trigger.

Pours a clear dark gold with lots of carbonation although the head fizzes away pretty quickly. Smells of peaches, peach juice, a little tartness.

The taste is again lots of peach, lots of sugary sweetness and very mild tartness/sourness in the aftertaste. Thin, crisp, and very drinkable if you enjoy sweeter beers. I could easily chug this like a soda.

As a big fan of fruit beers and ciders this is really enjoyable to me even if it does border on being too sweet once you near the end of the bottle. For those who aren't a big fruit beer fan this will probably be WAY too sweet so you might want to steer clear. I really enjoy it though, it's a nice treat.

Served from their champagne 750 bottle into a tall pint glass.

Appears a beautiful golden apricot with a foamy creamy head that doesn't easily subside.

Smells delicious and like tart Bretty peaches.

Taste is amazing. Sweet but not cloying. A "realer" taste than their other fruit beers. Cant pick up much malt or hops.

Mouthfeel is really nice. A bit tart and the Brett comes through. Finishes smooth and slightly creamy.

Overall an amazing beer and one of my favorites in the fruit genre.

A - The bottle is corked with a cap in a dark green bottle. The beer looks like a squeezed peach! Carbonation is in full effect. Clear on the verge of being cloudy but what else would you expect a peach to be?

S - It smells like sweet aged wood or a sweet cork but not like peach. More wood/cork smell than anything else.

T - It tastes similar to the way it smells. Has a non traditional peach taste that makes your mouth salivate.

M - Your mouth will water for the after taste. You can taste the peachy cork it seems like. Leaves a very sweet peachy type taste.

D - This is a specialty beer to me. I could drink this all day but would expect a sour stomach after a few bottles. This would be great to serve to a group or someone who doesn't like a "typical" beer.

This came from a small corked bottle from my grownup candyshop, shoreline beverage.

A - Poured a light orange, translucent. Bubbled like a champagne with a small 1/4" white head.

S - Smelled of dry sweet peaches and a little tickle from the c02.

T - Tasted excellent. Like a peach champagne. Maybe korbel. Slightly tart as it goes down but sweet in the beginning.

M - Nicely carbonated. Very smooth.

D - Could drink this like soda. Its very easy and pleasant to drink. Its flavor is something you just cant get enough of. Gives me peach burps, which are also pleasant.

Beautiful honey colored brew with a soft white head that leaves Belgian lace on the glass.

The aroma is sweet and fruity.

The flavor and mouthfeel together are just about perfect. A velvetty smooth sensation that has oodles of fresh sweet peaches, a bit of tart tang but mostly an absolutely delectable kind of perfect sweetness that is neither cloying or hesitant. Just perfect.

I do recommend drinking this beer at a cool but not cold temperature. I've had it on tap at bars before and it was too cold and lost much of the flavor and feel on the tongue, but right now poured out of a large (750 ML) bottle after just a little while in the fridge, it is truly world-class.

Most definitely the best fruit beer I've ever had, and quite possibly one of the best beers period that I've ever drank. I highly recommend this as a truly spectular special occasion beer.

Pours a hazy peach-orange color with a 1 inch fizzy white head that fades to nothing. No lacing on this one whatsoever. Smell is obviously of peaches, peach juice, and some slight sour/tart aromas. Taste is of fresh sweet peaches, peach juice, and some tart acidic flavors. A nice sour peach aftertaste with each sip. Very carbonated with a crisp and slightly sticky mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good lambic and probably my other favorite besides the framboise. Really nice peach aromas and flavors on this one.

Pour/Appearance: Thin head, rich amber in color and relatively clear.

Smell: peach, apple fruit bouquet.

Mouthfeel: Well-balanced/full-bodied lambic with just the right amount of carbonation.

Taste: peaches and apples. Though this is a peach lambic, it comes across as an apple cider.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a flute glass at the World of Beer in Pooler, GA. The appearance is a cloudy peach colored orange with a small white head. The aroma is pure peach goodness. The taste is heavy "real" peach and has a thick texture. An excellent beer! The best peach flavor beer I have had to date.

This was amazing, perhaps the best memory of this christmas, and a christmas miracle too (I found a beer my mom liked the taste of). This beer poured orange with a white/peach colored head, smell was intensely of sweet fruits, complimenting the taste. It was light and bubbly to the tongue, the alcohol almost not noticeable, it was perhaps that that made it so easy to drink.

This beer is candy! Pure sweetness! Foiled, capped and corked. Pours a hazy orange amber with a thin cap of fizzy white head. Spotty lace. Beautiful for the style.

The aroma is of pure overripe peaches with hints of yeasty funk and musk peeking through. A bright, vibrant, fruity, sweet tart, sharp spike that wakes the nose up.

The taste is of over ripe peaches, sugar, a tart green apple in the finish, but a sweet peach and malty caramel note in the after taste. Tartness lingers a bit. Delicious. Bright and vibrant. The tartness balances it out so it isn't overly cloying,but still dessert.

The body is light, crisp and fizzy like a spritzer.

This beer rocks and the wife loves it!

A: Dark orange color; somewhat of a cloudy, muddled copper. No appreciable head to speak of.

S: Gorgeous aroma of peach, apricots, and citrus. Peach dominates though.

T: PEACH. EXPLOSION. This is just oozing over the top with peach flavor; sweet, saccharine, almost-over ripe peaches. It almost tastes like you're biting into a peach that you just picked from the grove. The other Lindemans flavors (i.e. Kriek, Framboise) have enough of a yeast kick to remind you it's beer. This is just an overwhelming peach infusion.

M: Small, effervescent bubbles not unlike champagne which tingle the mouth ever so slightly.

D: Extremely sippable, gorgeously fruity brew. This is one I'll be recommending to all my friends, even the non-beer drinkers.

Pours out a beautiful hazy orange with a frothy white head on top. Smell is sweet and peachy, just like one would expect

Taste is sweetly sugary with a tart peachy tone whirling around on the back of the tongue and a definite green apple tinge and hints of apricot. Finish is very dry. I like this combination a lot!

Mouthfeel, light and bubbly, almost champagne-like, perfect for the flavour. Drinkability, well, the sweetness could get to you after a while, but I really enjoy the flavour and it finishes very smooth so I have to give it exceptional marks. I would have no problem having one of these in hand on any given evening.

Overall, a delicious lambic that I'd be happy to pick up again.

Pours cloudy orange with a thin head. Smells like fuzzy peaches with some other fruity aromas and there is a little cork scent also. Very sweet peachy flavor at first that also mixes with maybe a little plum flavor that quickly dries out in a crisp finish. This is like candy beer.

Mmmm I like my lambic. This one is not as strong as the raspberry I've had before and more refreshing and thin.

A- Barely transparent peach/beer light amber color with some carbonation.

S- Smells like peach.

T- Tastes like peach.

M- Feel is somewhat watery.

D- Very drinkable in an endless way

First time for me on a Belgium Lambic, and I must say I was quite impressed.

Smooth body, a very drinkable beer. Nice tart peach aroma. Indeed not a typical "beer-like" taste, smell, or feel, therefore don't drink it like you would a porter (i.e. a dessert-type beer, not a drink with "meat and potatoes" beer).

Excellent purchase (albiet pricey).

12 oz. bottle

Pours mostly clear amber gold with a creamy frothy white foam head that sticks around. Smells like fresh peach, green apple skin, hay, with earthy grassy hops. Tastes like sweet peach, peach juice, slightly tart green apple, hay, with earthy grassy hops. Feels medium bodied, thick and syrupy with low carbonation. Overall a really nice peach lambic.

An excelent peach lambic. The beer poured a nice peachy golden color with a nice white head. The smell was very friuty and sweet, full of peaches and a bit of an apricot scent. When I sipped the beer the flavor of peaches exploded in my mouth followed by a nice dry sourness that counteracted the sweetness perfectly. Definantly a great desert beer and one that may cross over some non beer drinkers.
