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!

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!

Well, this is probably my favorite of the Lindemans blended fruit offerings, perhaps only because it is so delightfully sweet and syrupy. Maybe it perverts the fundamentals of the lambic style by overpowering it with peach juice, but my palate agrees with its fundamental appeal.

It has a light mouthfeel, like a nice sparkling wine, but of course much sweeter than what you would get in that area. It's easy to go through a 750ml bottle of thise stuff without even realizing that you've started. Thankfully, its alcohol content is not outrageous.

WOW - who'd of thunk it - a fruit Belgian beer that is just awesome. This is no wine cooler nor is it a chick beer. This is a finely crafted brew that shows a real attention to detail. The complexity of getting a began ale to blend in flavor with peaches and not seem like one flavor is alienating the other. Excellent work.

The flavor is distinctly of peaches but the Belgian beer flavors are still there the hops and maltiness are perfectly blended with a delicate balance that they are more enhancing to the natural flavor of the peaches. If you haven't tried or have some BS reason to not try lambics - then give it up for this one. If you have tried the Kriek, Cassis or Framboise and didn't find these to your liking don't make a prejudicial opinion based on those. This is a unique flavor and stands completely on its own.

01/08/05- Purchased at Tower Market in San Francisco, CA

Presentation- 750ml champagne like bottle. No freshness date. Poured into my Lindemans flute like glass.

Appearance- Yellow-orangish sparky pour with a slight cream head which slowly fades away. Leaves minor lacing.

Smell- Wonderful scent of fresh orchard peaches. A bit sweet and a bit tart in the nose.

Taste- Possibly the best way to get my vitamin C. Awesome taste of fresh fresh fresh peaches. More sweet, almost sugary sweet. A tad bitter when swallowing.

Mouthfeel- Suprisingly full feeling for me. Maybe it's because of the sweet creamy texture.

Drinkability- This has always been one of my go to beers on special occasions. I bit sweet to slam a few bottles, but it's about as drinkable as it gets. Everyone I know personally loves this lambic.

Been meaning to try this and some of the other Lindeman's variations for a while now and finally got around to pulling the trigger.

Pours a clear dark gold with lots of carbonation although the head fizzes away pretty quickly. Smells of peaches, peach juice, a little tartness.

The taste is again lots of peach, lots of sugary sweetness and very mild tartness/sourness in the aftertaste. Thin, crisp, and very drinkable if you enjoy sweeter beers. I could easily chug this like a soda.

As a big fan of fruit beers and ciders this is really enjoyable to me even if it does border on being too sweet once you near the end of the bottle. For those who aren't a big fruit beer fan this will probably be WAY too sweet so you might want to steer clear. I really enjoy it though, it's a nice treat.

Served from their champagne 750 bottle into a tall pint glass.

Appears a beautiful golden apricot with a foamy creamy head that doesn't easily subside.

Smells delicious and like tart Bretty peaches.

Taste is amazing. Sweet but not cloying. A "realer" taste than their other fruit beers. Cant pick up much malt or hops.

Mouthfeel is really nice. A bit tart and the Brett comes through. Finishes smooth and slightly creamy.

Overall an amazing beer and one of my favorites in the fruit genre.

A - The bottle is corked with a cap in a dark green bottle. The beer looks like a squeezed peach! Carbonation is in full effect. Clear on the verge of being cloudy but what else would you expect a peach to be?

S - It smells like sweet aged wood or a sweet cork but not like peach. More wood/cork smell than anything else.

T - It tastes similar to the way it smells. Has a non traditional peach taste that makes your mouth salivate.

M - Your mouth will water for the after taste. You can taste the peachy cork it seems like. Leaves a very sweet peachy type taste.

D - This is a specialty beer to me. I could drink this all day but would expect a sour stomach after a few bottles. This would be great to serve to a group or someone who doesn't like a "typical" beer.

This came from a small corked bottle from my grownup candyshop, shoreline beverage.

A - Poured a light orange, translucent. Bubbled like a champagne with a small 1/4" white head.

S - Smelled of dry sweet peaches and a little tickle from the c02.

T - Tasted excellent. Like a peach champagne. Maybe korbel. Slightly tart as it goes down but sweet in the beginning.

M - Nicely carbonated. Very smooth.

D - Could drink this like soda. Its very easy and pleasant to drink. Its flavor is something you just cant get enough of. Gives me peach burps, which are also pleasant.

Beautiful honey colored brew with a soft white head that leaves Belgian lace on the glass.

The aroma is sweet and fruity.

The flavor and mouthfeel together are just about perfect. A velvetty smooth sensation that has oodles of fresh sweet peaches, a bit of tart tang but mostly an absolutely delectable kind of perfect sweetness that is neither cloying or hesitant. Just perfect.

I do recommend drinking this beer at a cool but not cold temperature. I've had it on tap at bars before and it was too cold and lost much of the flavor and feel on the tongue, but right now poured out of a large (750 ML) bottle after just a little while in the fridge, it is truly world-class.

Most definitely the best fruit beer I've ever had, and quite possibly one of the best beers period that I've ever drank. I highly recommend this as a truly spectular special occasion beer.
