Going to the country going to eat a lot of peaches. Or drink a lot of peaches. Im not sure what else to say about this beer except its a lambic and tastes and smells like peaches. So if you'd had the other flavors, just substitute peach for whatever other fruit you've had. This one is tasty.

12 oz. bottle poured into a glass.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy orange with a pillowy white head. This was a pain to open because of the cork. Darn Euros.

Aroma: Peaches - lots and lots of peaches. And more peaches.

Taste: Tastes like peaches, unsurprisingly. It also has some syrupiness, almost like soda. Very sweet. Some sourness on the finish.

Mouthfeel: It's very soda-like in body. That combined with the low alcohol makes it feel very much like a soft drink.

Overall: Solid dessert beer. If you like peach cobbler, this is basically peach cobbler and a peach soda plus some unnoticeable alcohol.

A golden brew topped in a small white head that is very bubbly and dies pretty quickly. The aroma is very sweet and fruity. The peach smell is not too intense.

It is very nicely carbonated and it is a nice crisp drinker all the way down. Peach flavors are more mild than those of other fruits in Lindeman's other products. It is a nice one, but it does not seem to have any tart character to it at all. It is a bit boring, but still enjoyable. I will stick with the framboise from these guys.

When poured into my glass, the head was very small with small-medium bubbles that quickly diminished. There was some fizzy carbonation present and no lacing. The nose was apples and peaches. The body was semi-cloudy and it was a hazy golden in hue. The flavor was sour, bitter, tart and fruity. The mouthfeel was oily and buttery.

Welll... I'm just not sure about the general consensus on the Lindemans lambics. Where the geuze had a pleasing level of sweetness that balanced the solid sour/tartness... once we're talking about he Peach lambic... the sweetness is intense. It's not terribly cloying, but it is SWEET. We're talking not not sweet.

Pours light, vaguely hazy straw with just a wisp of head and only a minimal bit of lacing. It's definitely not as highly carbonated as one might expect (here, by "one" I clearly mean: "I"). Peach is present and mild and a nice malty grain toast just flitting around, barely. But the sweetness rolls in, punctuated by a pleasing, and refreshing sourness. But it's mild enough to almost be a tartness. The difference between this and a Peach soda is smaller than I would like.

Fine as an aperitif, sweet enough but not full bodied or strong enough to be a digestif, I suppose this is a fine introduction into the world of lambics, but it's so almost entirely a different character that it really does nothing except introduce the idea that some beers have sweetness and sourness to them. Nothing to dislike here, I'll have it again, I'm sure, but it's nothing I get cravings for.

A- Pours a nice gold color w/ a beautiful, bubbly two finger white head. Excellent carbonation and lacing on this brew.

S- Umm... Peaches, although there's a little funkyness to this one as well. Not bad, but it adds to the character of the nose.

T- Actually a very tasty brew. The sugar has to be off the charts, and the peach comes through- although it's not overpowering. Aftertaste is nice and mellow. I actually really like this beer a lot more than I thought I would. For the style, it's really nice. There is a little earthy funkyness, but it's minimal and adds to the complexity of the beer.

M- Somewhat tart, but very sweet at the same time. Feels like I have a mouth full of sugar in my mouth. Not that that's a bad thing.

O- Nice brew. Not my favorite style, but this is a tasty beer that would be refreshing on a hot summer's day.

Light straw with a thick syrupy viscous texture. Creamy thick head is nice. Nose is very peach and apricot with sugar. The taste absolutely surprised me. The flavor of peach shines through with a surprisingly restrained sweetness. A tart prickly carbonation finishes medium dry with notes of semisweet desert wine, like a dry moscato or a sweet pinot grigio. While the slight tartness delivers a great finish on the first few sips, the sweetness however unfortunately builds into a sugary candy overdose feel. Overall, way better than I expected considering the overpowering sweetness of the frambois. But still sweet, though more complex and better balanced than I expected.

2009 rate.

Bottled, pours a turbid deep copper orange with a sizable head. Nose is some sour oak and canned peaches, not bad. Extremely sweet flavor compared to every other lambic I've tried, though it tastes kind of good. Not fresh peaches but canned peaches and syrup. Ultimately this is candy-like and is way too sweet for me to drink a whole bottle. Better than the Framboise and Cassis.

Poured from a cool, 355-ml bottle that is both capped and corked, beer has the color of apple juice and has a sparkling white head. The smell is definitely peaches, it reminds me of a peach jam my mom used to make - sweet but not overly so. The taste is also peachy, but there is a malt-grain background that reminds you that you aren't drinking a wine cooler. Not too sweet, the wild yeast has created a slight sour-tart note that complements the mix quite nicely. The carbonation has a silky, creamy feel to it while the lambic itself has a slight acidic, tart, mouth-drying effect. This is a very drinkable lambic, probably one of the better ones.

The only reason I would not be able to drink more of Lindemans Peche is because it is a fruity style. Personally I enjoy one or two fruitish beers and that's my fill, the same with this one. I did really enjoy the one I had. It was very smooth, and thicker than I expected, but most certainly not too thick.
