The golden body, tending to amber, supports a very pale, almost white neck. The smell of peaches is dominant on other floral scents presents in the background.

The taste is loyal to the aroma, but now the sourness shows up. I don't notice any hop taste. This medium-body beer has an incredible ability to go through the palate without any notice - it's pretty interesting. Also, it seems to be a very good alternative for a champagne.

This looks like a lightly colored fizzy apple juice. There’s a tart aroma that smacks of what I imagine peach blossoms to smell like. Very—overly—sweet with the flavor of an almost-artificial ripened peach on the palate. Think something along the lines of a peach jam in terms of sweetness. It is crisp and an easy drinker but that does not make this one I’d seek out again.

355 ml bottle with no apparent bottled on date. Super stoked to try this brew, as it will be my first Brouwerij Lindemans Lambic that I am trying! Uncapped and poured into a Boulevard tulip glass. I'm surprised at the presence of a cork in addition to a bottle cap, but that's okay.

A - Pours an extremely cloudy, sparkling, apple cider yellow looking color. No head at all.

S - Smells like the tartest apple juice you could ever get your hands on. Peach isn't exactly coming in strong on the nose for me, but it is definitely full of citrus twang and life. Smells sweet, tangy, and sour mixed with some dirty wet socks that were left out for a week (which might sound bad, but in my experience, this usually indicates a fabulous tasting beverage). I'm salivating already.

T - Tart and sour. Very lovely taste. Carbonation level is perfect, the beer's body is very well-balanced. Reminds me of an extremely yummy alcoholic apple juice, or some kind of cider, except if you ask me, this beer tastes a hell of a lot better than any cider I've ever tried.

M - Tartness disappears in the blink of an eye, and all you're left with is a bit of leftover stickiness from all the fruit sugars.

Overall, this was a delicious first introduction to Brouwerij Lindemans Lambic beers, and I am excited to try more. I think the only thing disappointing me about this beer is it's lackluster 4.0% abv.

A: Average looking carbonated beverage that contains alcohol.
S: Light peach aroma.
T: Vague peach taste. Sweet to drink. A little bit sour.
M: Great bubbles.
O: Light peach flavour. People who enjoy lightly flavoured fruit beverages should try Lindemans Pêche.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Poured into a Saint Somewhere wine-style glass. No freshness date.

A- Pours a clean bronze color with a 1/2 inch white head that instantly vanishes to a paper-thin ring around the edge of the glass and a light splotch of surface foam. Nearly no lacing.

S- Peach soda smell that's sweet and seems only somewhat artificial. Slightly effervescent.

T- A sweetness that dances on the border of cloying and has a white wine-like quality but with peach flavoring.

M- Very thin but syrupy and a bit dry. Low carbonation leaves much to be desired since the body is so watery.

O- With more carbonation, this might be a decent lambic.

Neat well, peach colored pour, white head on the top, 1", looks nice. Aroma of peaches and sugar. Nothing really offered up in terms of tartness or sourness from this. Pretty much every lindeman's I've ever had with the exception of the cuvee rene gueuze works out this way. The peach is a nice juicy aroma.

Taste, appreciable peach, but also significant sugary content. A little bit of tartness develops on the palate. Wheat is perceptible. Peach is strong, like the pimp hand. The downfall is just the massive sugar content, and it is oh so prevalent in the mouthfeel, like you're drinking a peach lemonade or something, but without even the tartness of something like lemonade can bring. I like it more than the other sugary lambics lindeman's offers, but I think this would just be so good if they cut down on the sugar and amped up the tartness in these.

Poured from bottle into oversized wine glass (no flute at the moment).

A- Hazy straw-wheat, and tons of lively carbonation. No head retention, but a nice Saturn ring that leaves slippery lacing on the side of the glass.

S- PEACHES! Lots of fresh sweet peaches, a tiny pinch of citrus, very aromatic.

T- Palate follows the nose on this one. Sweet peaches with a sour finish. Not too many dimensions, not complex with taste but a solid lambic.

MF- Light medium body, TONS of carbonation that tickles the tongue. The taste really hangs around your mouth.

O- This is a very sweet/sour beer, and I mean very sweet. I can only handle one bottle of this due to that simple fact that it is just way to sweet for my taste. I still enjoyed it very much. This is not my everyday beer at all, but I could possibly see myself trying more lambics in the near future. I spent about 6 bucks for a 12 oz. bottle so if you are "experimenting" it is a just above fair price imo. Still good in my book though.

A: Crystal clear wheat color. Not overly carbonated in the flute glass.

S: A real tartness comes through. Hints of peach. Some sweetness. A good balance.

T: Really great balance of tart and sweet and peach flavors. The tartness overtakes a bit much near the end but not bad.

M: Great flavor development here. This really lets the peach come through while having a perfect carbonation. Again, sweet and tart.

Overall a great showing. I dare say this one is a little too sweet compared to other Lindemans but the balance is great as always. Highly recommended.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass, the lambic was a golden color. Giving a generous head, the lambric has a champagne-like level of carbonation. A bouquet of fresh cut peaches erupted from the glass. It does not really smell like beer, but that is how lambics are supposed to be. The initial taste is tart peaches with honey and a hint of cinnamon. The peach hits the sour buds on the tongue making them tingle with the sour sensation. My great disappointment with this beer is that the flavor did not last long as the carbonation brushed the peaches away quickly, leaving a somewhat watery aftertaste. The tart peach notes are present, but not with the same level of intensity.

Tried this at Gigs in London. Poured a clear orange/pinkish colour, just like a peach. This one tasted like a jolly rancher as well, with a bit more apple coming through then peach in the flavour. Its pretty crazy how much fruit flavour they got in this though. Interesting beer.

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!

At the time of this review, this is #32 on the "Top Beers - Lambic - Fruit" list on beeradvocate.com. Served in a Lindemann's flute glass because I own them for this reason, would be dumb not to you think?

Beer is yellow and mostly clear with a nice white head of medium and large bubbles. Moderate retention, no lacing though, aggressive carbonation.

Aroma is all peach all the way, smells nice.

This sint' a great beer and not a great lambic but it is sweet and light and very fruit forward, it is a fun beer and hte wife seems to like it especially in summer so I don't have a problem with it. I'll never go out of my way to drink one of these fake lambics but I'll try anything once, better than I expected.

This brew pours an orange/copper color with a two finger head which dissapates inside of five minuets. Minimal lacing stays on the glass throughout. Fair amount of carbonation.

The smell is strong with peaches, which is what this brew is about. There is also the smell of apples and wet hay/straw.

The taste is heavy on the peaches. Sweet malts and the Lambic tartness which reminds me of a Granny Smith apple. There is also a slight yeast taste near the end of the brew.

The mouthfeel is crisp, clean and tart. Just like most Lambic's it makes the mouth pucker as you drink it.

Overall this brew answers the call of being a summer fruit Lambic. Light and easy to drink. Strong on the peach flavor and Lambic tartness.

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.

A: Slight cream coloured head over amber liquid with excellent clairity.

S: Peaches and yeast.

T: Sweet fresh peach, sweet white wine in the middle and some yeast in the finish. Very refreshing tasting.

M: Medium viscosity and a medium level of fine carbonation. A somewhat dry finish.

O: Extremely drinkable, this is the beer equivalent of biting into a sweet fresh peach.

Poured into a tulip glass from a 750ml bottle.

Pours a nice golden color with some orange hues. A nice 0.5 inch head forms that is a bit dense yet recedes quickly.

Aroma of peaches and some nice tartness. Sugary sweetness and some nice fruit juice notes. There are some woody and grassy notes as well with some slight white wine notes.

Taste starts off with some nice sugary notes. Peach fruit juice and some yeasty notes. There is some nice tartness that kicks up near the middle and tappers off a bit as it finishes. There is a nice crispness and dryness to the finish but with some nice flowery sweetness. Awesome brew.

This is a great fruit lambic easily could be one of my favorites. Great fruit flavors and sweetness. Awesome

Pours clear golden peach color with a minimal dirty white head which quickly dissipated with no retention.

Smells of peaches, fresh and fermented. A bit of apple and yeast come through as well.

Tate is of fresh peach, crisp and clean. The flavor progresses towards a great tartness on the end.

Texture is fine, light bubbles tickle as I drink it, and it has a dry finish that makes for easy drinking.

Another great lambic. Enjoyable, light, easy to recommend to those who are interested.

Review from notes.

A: Pours a clear golden color with a small white head that does not last long. No lacing at all.

S: Reminds me of peach ring candy. Lots of peach and candied sugar, extremely sweet.

T: Tart peaches, lots of candied sugar. Slight funk to it, but the sugary peaches dominate.

M: Light to medium bodied, on the sweet side, and more like a soda than a beer.

O: Really, not that bad. It tastes good, and in the end, that is what matters most, but not something I would seek out often.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

355ml bottle poured into a 16oz tulip.

A - Pours with a thin, fizzy white head that doesn't last long; fizzles out in seconds. The color is a golden-amber with slight haze. No lacing, but that's sort of to be expected with this style. For a headless lambic, as I would expect one to be, this beer looks pretty fine to me.

S - Juicy peaches abound, with light notes of wet hay and sweet barley malt floating in the background. Fairly syrupy, and sort of smells artificial, however the bottle states that actual peaches are used. It's got a slight funk to it, but not like the usual brettanomyces/barnyard funk, but something more sterile and... odd. Sort of cleaning product/hospital-esque.

T - Starts out slightly sharp and acidic, with a touch of tartness, and that's about as far as this one gets in terms of traditional sour flavors. The flavor then explodes into a rush of juicy peaches and mountains of candi sugar. Tons of sweet malt notes and intense fruity, peachy flavors. Finishes with a touch of wet hay, but not really "barnyard" like at all. The aftertaste is a delicious bready, yeasty feel that helps balance the big sweetness this beer boasts upfront. Light tart character lingers, but doesn't do anything to get in the way of the sweeter side of this lambic. No hop presence detectable.

M - Light-to-medium body, but a little syrupy/cloying. Carbonation is on the high side of the scale. The first sip is a burst of bubbly goodness. It's not exactly a fine, smooth carbonation, but it's not really fizzy or overdone feeling; sort of in between.

D - It's not balanced, and it's not complex, but it's damn good. It also may be worth mentioning that this has been my introduction to Brouwerij Lindemans, a brewery I expect to drinking a lot of now! While it may not satisfy the connoisseur in search of a intense sour, this lambic has been thoroughly satisfying for me. Despite the overbearing sweetness in the flavor profile, it remains quite drinkable; but then again, how could a 4.0% ABV sunshine-fruity sugar bomb not? If there has ever been an ideal brunch beer, this is it.

look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a pale apricot with a 1-finger thin looking white head, reduces quickly to nothing.

The nose rather delightful- a wheat crispness lifting up the syrupy peach tones that hold complexities akin to a fruit cocktail of the other major tree fruits- apricots, pears and apples.

Palate is light, with a bright carbonation and a slight bump in body from the incredibly syrupy peachy sweetness. As sweet as it is, though, there's a ridiculously huge tart juiciness providing a perfect balance. Bitterness isn't noticeable, nor are there any funky tones, while the brew picks up a little malt on the tart finish with a malty-wheat dryness in the middle of the tongue.

Honestly, I don't think anyone could make a peach wine this delicious and balanced. Big sweetness and a big tartness. Someone pass the French toast.

I have had this beer several times at Tap Works in OKC and also poured from bottle at home. Both are pleasing but it is much better on tap.
For this review I am reviewing poured from a bottle into a Pint glass.

A- Pale Orange, slightly cloudy. With a perfect poor it gives a 1 finger off white head that quickly dissipates with slight lacing.

S- Peaches are the most prominent scent. Wet hay in the background, maybe some stale cardboard. A slight funk that smells really good with everything else.

T- Sweet peaches, Grass, Bitter almost lemony taste, and that funk that really makes me want to take another drink.

M- Over carbonated. Almost burns my mouth from the fizz. This is the only thing I wish was different.

O- Overall, I rate this beer at a 4.o. If the carbonation was a little lighter This would easily get a 4.5. I can't rate at a 5 because even though this is a great beer, it's not something that I can drink everyday. It's a once or twice a year drink.

750ml bottle

Pours clear gold with a two inch head of settling white fluff. Tattered curtains of lacing throughout the glass and a partial skim coat.

Aromatics lead off with a blast of peaches and a hint of ginger. A hint of wet hay follows through.

Light bodied with a crisp, tacky mouthfeel.

Peaches, peach juice, and peach syrup start the palate. Sweet and fruity with zero bitterness and no tartness. Tastes like peach soda.

Finishes with lingering sweet peaches.
A sweet, peachy concoction but in no way resembles a lambic.

Green glass 355 ml bottle, capped, corked, and foiled. After the cork popped, there were no immediately evident odours (unlike other flavours of lambic from the same brewery). After a proper pour, at a chilled 40 degrees, there was a rather lackluster 1 finger, quickly dissipating head that gave way to a thin layer of lacy foam. Below the foam resides a clear peach ring orange brew with small, but plentiful, champagne-like bubbles.

The smell after poured can almost be equated to that of a tart grape juice, or sour grape skins with an afterthought of peach skins.

This lambic is not so much sweet, but instead very tart. Think champagne with a hint of peach skin. It's tartness goes so far as to have hints of lemon in it. A bit of funkiness is detected as an aftertaste, but not in an unpleasant way. There was no noticeable bitterness in any stage of the drink.

High carbonation is noticed on the tongue along with sweetness on the lips. The balance of carbonation and tartness make it a bright, fruity beer with a wet finish.

Overall, it's an excellent beer to go with more food selections than other lambics. Strongly recommend to those who are not a fan of young, bitter hops in their drinks.

this is my first lambic. poured into palm glass

A-looks pretty good. pours a nice golden orange. pretty clear. not much head.

S-peaches hits the nose upon opening. very sweet. smells sort of like a peach cup. not much else to this one.

T-very sweet. definitely getting the peaches, and lots of them. not really any hops. mostly just a sweet peachy malt. pretty simple.

MF-medium body. not a ton of carbonation, pretty well balanced.

O-this is pretty good. a bit to sugary. drinks more like a wine cooler. wouldn't mind having again though. look forward to trying some more flavors.
