Notes / Commercial Description:
Lindemans Pêche is a young lambic enriched with peach juice. And this fruit beer is a real peach! It is nice to drink at any time of day. Or on a sunny patio. Personally, I enjoy it with my girlfriends. And what we talk about is of no concern to you.

Crisp, cider-like mouthfeel, color of medium-dark peach skin, aroma and flavor are perfection. No head at all, which is disappointing but I’ll blame the restaurant for that.

This lambic pours a dark orange beige into the glass and leaves a thick, fluffy head. It smells a little too sweet, almost like peach juice. The taste is roughly the same: even if the peach flavor is fresh and pleasant, and the undertones of barley fairly refined and mature, this may be a bit better off with less of a sugary flavor. The velvety consistency of the beer makes this a delightful beer to drink.

Appearance: Although corked, the beer is undercarbonated, pouring out clear and golden colored; the head that appears is from a hard pour and much of it silently fades away in the first minute, although a hazy shower curtain of lacing does appear with each sip

Smell: Funky peach aromatics

Taste: The overpowering sweetness leaves the funk in the dust, as the peach flavors blossom in the mid-palate; the funk struggles to come through, after the swallow but fades into the sweet peach finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with low carbonation

Overall: If only the sweetness were cut way back, this would be an excellent beer - the funk smells very interesting but it is hard to find on the palate

I don't understand why the score for this beer is so low. It's one of the "peachier" peach beers I've had and it has wonderful carbonation and feel for a Lambic. A pleasantly sweet, slightly tart, not-too-peachy treat that I thoroughly enjoyed.

Pours a clear amber-yellow with a finger of white head. Head retention is good, with no lacing left behind. Aroma is fleshy peach with a touch of apricot. It smells candied and sweet. Flavor profile is even sweeter, delivering a huge dose of ripe, fleshy peach. Sweetness cannot be understated. It's sweeter than even the ripest and juiciest of peaches. Mouth feel is medium in thickness, with a still, smooth texture. Overall, a sublime lambic featuring peaches - as the bottle suggests. It never grows complicated or over done, just peaches on peaches on peaches.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 750mL bottle.

My first Lambic beer, and quite a delicious one at that. I just logged a beer I thought was bad purely because it tasted as if someone just squirted juice into it. This is very different. It is one whole cohesive array of balanced delicious flavors. Wonderful peach and apple on the tongue. A beautiful gold body and white head in the glass. I will definitely need to be trying more Lambics.

Holy Peachy Deliciousness!!!

Its like drinking carbonated heavy peach syrup straight from a can of peaches that is 2.5% ABV

The only downside to this brew is something that all other lambics share. That is that it is 140 calories per bottle.
Which is about the same as a soda.

However, unlike a peach soda.. The peach flavor in this is not fake or artificial tasting in any way.
And let me tell you, good lord, is it good!

The appearance was a clear golden colored body with a one fingered white foamy head and leaves some clingy lacing. The smell was a sticky sweet peach, light apples try to enter as it warms. The taste was sweet sticky peaches and apples. The aftertaste had sweet sticky peaches and apples with an acceptable watery peachy finish. The palate was light, extremely sessionable (perhaps one of the most sessionable beers I may have had). I see the ABV is nice and low which assists for that. Carbonation is fairly subdued and almost lets this one drink like peach flavored water. Overall, fruit lambic, it sure is and pretty damn good.
