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.

Pours out a slightly hazy orange with a small fizzy white head that drops to a few bubbles.

Smell. Nice tartness, just slight sweetness of peaches. Also has a bit of earthy smells from the yeast.

Taste. Very strong peaches come out that is quite sweet. I think the sweetness is balanced very well with a tartness. Peach flavor seems a little syrup-like. Aftertaste really reminds me of dehydrated peaches. Quite nice and refreshing.

Mouthfeel. I say it's pretty good. Carbonation is at a nice moderate level. Body is slightly light, and refreshing.

Overall, a nice beer to change things up. Lately i havent wanted much carbonation, and this did a great job quenching my thirst.

A: Pours a translucent golden with a white head.

S: Peach, sweet nectary fruits and faint notes of funky Belgian yeast in the nose.

T: Sweet peach, orange, tangerine, no funk, a slight, citric tartness, but it's quite uncharacteristic of a lambic.

M: Medium bodied and quite smooth.

O: Overall a very pleasant drinking beer, but perhaps more akin in taste to a sweet cider. Recommended if you like sweet fruity beers.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a Lindemans' flute.

A: A light golden honey color with a fluffy off-white that receded quickly.

S: Fresh peaches with the distinct smell of yeast.

T: The sweet taste of peaches with a tart finish. It's a very interesting flavor since the fruit is pronounced as well as the malt and other traditional beer flavors.

M: Slightly syrupy with light carbonation.

D: This lambic goes down very easily, like drinking juice. This is my first lambic and I found it quite interesting. It's not something I'll have all the time but it definitely has it's time and place for the appropriate use. Plus my wife liked it and she's not the biggest beer fan in the world.

White head on pour leaves quickly. Yellowish/peach color with lots of little bubbles.. crystal clear (filtered) look. Sweet smell of fruit and a sharp hop note as well. Initial slight grassy taste followed by a peach sweetness and sweet malt. The finish is slightly crisp, bitter, and dry. Slightly overall too sweet. Medium /light mouth.

Picked up this one at the Root Cellar for $5.99. Consumed 3/11/2009.

Pours a lightly cloudy peach color with a nice white head minimal lacing.

Smells of fresh, sweet peaches, tobacco and light apricot.

Taste is the same. Very nice and refreshing. Little to no funk presence. Very sweet...

Light bodied and highly carbonated. 12 ounce pour is all one needs for night.

750 mL bottle at 42 degrees into a Boon Kriek glass, split with my girlfriend.

A: It pours a clear orange color with a finger of powder-white and thick head that laces okay.

S: Juicy and tart peaches.

T: It begins sweet and turns tart near the finish, ending in a puckering of the lips - in a good way, of course.

M: The body is medium-light with heavy carbonation and is altogether very champagne-like.

O: This is a terrific lambic that is delicious and weak enough in alcohol to be enjoyed at any hour.

This is my first Lambic and WOW am I impressed. I had no idea just how good this style of beer is. The complexity of the beer is what amazes me. It seems to go through so many different smells a tastes.

Pours a slightly cloudy darker shade of yellow with a small head that lasts for awhile. It is champagne like in appearance and has that same effervesence. The smell is the obvious peach and very sweet. The taste is sweet up front, a hint of malt in the middle and finishes a bit sour and tart in the end. Smooth, clean and refreshing.

I had this as an appetizer but it would also work as a dessert. I could also use help with selecting the proper glass for next time.

Do they really call these beers? Tastes like a lite wine. Smells like a peach cobbler without the cinnamon with a spice and yeast nose. Hazy orange color a lacey head. Sugary sweet that tastes much like a hard candy. Peach taste dominates here. Yeast aftertaste is strong causing a dry, chalk-like finish. Good mix of sweet and sour, but perhaps a little too sweet.

*Aged over 2 years at room temperature

It pours a pumpkin orange, not hazy but not crystal clear. An aggressive pour into my tulip yielded a modest head. It quickly fades, but leaves a constant film around the edges.

The nose has a nice pungent sourness. The peach flavor is aggressive, and has qualities of ripe, overripe, and candied peaches. Fresh floral tones, soft yeast, and just a hint of flaky crackers from the malt backbone make up a pleasant aroma.

Right off the bat, the sweet and sour flavors engage in combat. Behind the peach is a solid floral grassy flavor impressive for a two year old beer. It finishes slightly dry and exceptionally clean.

The mouthfeel is right on for me. The body is approaching full with a syrupy feel. The carbonation is very modest but adds the fuzz around the edges that somehow seems appropriate for a peach beer. All the while my mouth goes into pucker mode upon every sip.
