I am partial to peach flavour and its healthy qualities.Lots of lace, a bit too sweet and peach aroma and taste. A bit of tartness and I would have liked more. Dessert beer. The taste is real and I would like to try fresh. Sampled at Cole's Belgian fest.
Sweetish but very good on tap at the Old Toad,

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.

this is punishingly sweet, and there really is nothing lambic-esque about it. it pours a flat looking bronze color with literally no head. the nose is brown sugar and peach syrup, the kind starbucks uses to make your latte "special". the peach is artificial in taste too, sort of like dried apricots, but more crystalized on the sugar front. a good beer for kids, as it satiates the candy urge, and would require a gallon or two to catch a buzz (not that I advocate or condone youth and alcohol...). teeth rottingly sweet, but not boring. it really needs more bubbles, and I think the bottle does more justice to this than the tap, but it comes across a bit heavy with all the residual sugar and no bubbles to keep it moving. overall this is well made I suppose, but its not beer as we know and love it, its something to keep the wife busy while you guzzle IPAs and figure out how much you've got to pay the babysitter. nothing special from my point of view.

This brew poured out as a clear looking light orange color. The head fizzles away and leaves no lacing. The smell of the beer has a sweet and slightly tart aroma to it. The taste of this brew is much like wine to me. There is a sweet dessert like quality to this brew also. The mouthfeel is light and easy going. Overall I found this brew to be pretty good overall. It's not my favorite from this brewery but still not bad.

A: Poured clear light orange with a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface. There's a light amount of carbonation.
S: The aroma is of sweet peaches.
T: There's a big, sweet flavor of peaches, although it's not overly sweet.
M: The mouthfeel is very light and refreshing; it feels smooth on the palate with a perfectly matched level of carbonation.
D: This beer is very easy to drink and would be perfect to pair with dessert.

Maybe the better of the Lindemans fruit beers. Still very sweet with a mild, but very sweet peach / apple flavor. Tart to offset sweetness. Certainly an after-dinner drink. Sweet to an almost cloying sense. Lightly syrupy and velvety texture with a sugar-sweet finish and lingering. Not overly strong as with the Framboise. Quite similar to the Pomme, but with a richer fruit flavor and texture. Solidly cider-ey but with a serious beer undertone. Enjoyable, but only on occations. No keg-stands for me.

355ml, scaly gold foil-capped and corked bottle, enjoyed on Mother's Day, in the afternoon after all that brunch stuff, with, well, who else?

This beer pours a mildly hazy, medium golden straw hue, with three fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and bubbly off-white head, which renders some nice layered and streaky cloud lace around the glass as it evenly recedes.

It smells of semi-sweet barley grain, candy sugar, earthy peach pulp, a further hint of apricot fruitiness, and a mild, musty yeastiness. The taste is much more sweet orchard peach, a soft barley and wheat graininess, a bit of applesauce, and an echo of dusty, yeasty funk.

The carbonation is low, barely a perceptible frothiness arises, the body medium-full in weight, syrupy, and smooth just like juice. It finishes off-dry, the tart/sweet fruit and back seat grain mixing well to the end.

A pleasant fruit lambic, where, once again, a nice balance is struck between the fruit, grain, and yeasty funk. Something nice to sip on after a big meal, and somewhat dessert-like, inspiring thoughts of revisiting the 'local' (10-hour drive for me) orchard-strewn sunbelt strip ASAP.

12 fl oz / 355 ml brown glass bottle with pressure cap over cork served into a Brown Palace mini-hefeweissbier glass in high altitude Castle Rock, Colorado. Reviewed live.

A: Pours a two finger head of light cream, okay thickness, and average retention - though the ABV is low. Colour is a clear gold.

Sm: Light sourness and yeast, bacteria, with some funk overshadowed by peach. Very pleasant and inviting. Maybe slight apple.

T: Peach and sourness, with a cidery apple-esque finish. Very nicely balanced, without too much sourness to compromise the balance. Not too yeasty. No alcohol comes through (not that I expected it to at 4.00%). Not extract based like some bad lambics. Well built for its aims.

Mf: Smooth and wet, with a more lightly dry and coarse finish. Near perfect considering the flavours.

Dr: Very drinkable: ALL GIRLS LOVE THIS BEER (and Allagash White). I'd definitely have it again; it may be best out of the bottle rather than on draught. It's a bit too cidery - especially on the finish - but it is a refreshing little beer.

A - Poured out a clear, yellow color with hints of pink and orange. It had a fizzy, small, white head that left no lace.

S - It smelled of peach and some subtle spice.

T - It tasted very sweet and of real peaches.

M - A champagne-like mouthfeel, sparkling, crisp and sharp. A very light bodied beer. Almost like drinking a lemonade or punch.

D - This is a pretty good fruit lambic. I prefer peach flavored beers to most others.

Bottle: Poured an orange colored beer with a nice huge head. Aroma is simply comprised of a nice peach nectar. Taste is also mostly comprised of peach with a subtle tart finish. This is probably one of the most refreshing beers that I had the chance to taste, sometime it seems more like a cooler/juice then a beer. Nothing is very complex with this beer and the alcohol level is quite low.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 4/4/2014. Pours lightly cloudy deep golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big juicy/tart peach, mango, pear, apple, green grape, honey, candi sugar, hay, grass, light funk, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of peaches, fruity/earthy yeast, and pale malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of big juicy/tart peach, mango, pear, apple, green grape, honey, candi sugar, hay, grass, light funk, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate fruity tartness and light yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of peach, mango, pear, apple, green grape, honey, candi sugar, hay, grass, light funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice robustness and complexity of peaches, fruity/earthy yeast, and pale malt sweetness; with a great malt/tartness balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth and fairly slick/acidic mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 2.5%. Overall this is an excellent sweetened fruit lambic. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of peaches, fruity/earthy yeast, and pale malt sweetness; and very smooth to drink with the low ABV and balanced tartness. A very enjoyable offering.

Poured into my Lindeman's Stange/Pilsner glass.

Pours a 1 and ½ finger head that doesn't last very long. Leaves some splattered lacing. Color is a slight hazy honey orange.

Aroma: Very sweet and tarty. The peaches are very present. As well as some other berries. I really can't distinguish anything else.

Taste: Just like the smell, very sweet and tarty. This definitely doesn't remind of beer. More like a juice/wine. But it is pretty good. Pale malts hit the palate and then all the peaches come around. Grapes are present as well. There is also something that is lingering in the background, but I can't place my finger on it.

Mouthfeel; Very, very tarty. A tad crisp. Medium bodied as well as medium carbonation. Ends with a fruity dry aftertaste.

Overall, this was my first lambic and I really enjoyed it. This 25.4 oz bottle went down easy. I will be trying the other ones. I could see these being enjoyed any time of the year as well.
