In a goblet, this beer forms a white surface lace. The body is a tawny, transparent yellow gold, when I try to describe it. My girlfriend simply says, "peach." The nose is 100% sweet peach, which smells great. The taste is sugary, intense peach. Simple, but good. The mouthfeel is viscous, with low carbonation. Could use more. This is a wonderful dessert beer, although the acid builds up if you have too much by yourself. Share a 12 oz bottle with at least one person!

Bottled and possibly bottle conditioned with cheeky saucy racy label
So good and fruity that my partner Julie who doesn't like much beer really enjoys this

A - Looks like apple cider with a thin white head. Mostly clear, little visible carbonation, and decent lacing.

S - A little sour from the yeast esters, sweet funk, ripe peaches, and dry wheat.

T - Very much sweet with a strong fermented peach flavor that is nice and juicy. Slight dryness/sour yeast at the end. Finishes tart with a full peach mouthfeel.

M/D - Champagne-like texture and carbonation. Semi-tart on the palate but a huge mouthfeel from all the carbonation and the peach flavor. Very light and refreshing and the low ABV makes it extremely drinkable.

Great morning beer!

Plenty of head, great peach coloured body. Full of character. Another Lindeman's product I'm tempted to mark as the highest rated fruit beer I've had. Good aroma, well present. A gritty, rippened fruit flavour. Flavour well developed, candy like taste - only authentic! Well suited for anyone's taste in my opinion

Apperance: Cloudy orange. Moderate head.

Smell: Tart peach smell. Kind of reminds me of a good champagne.

Taste: Sweet/tart peach flavors which fade away into a light hop taste.

Mouthfeel:Creamy and medium bodied.

Drinkability: Very yummy and easy to drink. I would love another.

Overall a very good Lambric, and it comes in an odd bottle cork and cap, how queer. A must try. Cheers.

I have passed by this numerous times before finally buying it at a restaurant.

Extremely cold when it arrived to the table so I let it warm for about 10 minutes.

Poured an orange-ish gold with a light layer of head which quickly dissolved.

Smelled of...peaches and maybe grapes.

The taste was a shocker. I actually enjoyed it. It was extremely refreshing and went very well with the ribs I was enjoying. Fruity and carbonated nicely. I would have had another but the prices were out of line.

Very surprised by this beer but it has opened my eyes to the Lambic style and I know that is somewhere I would like to venture to. This would also be a great way to get someone into another style of beer.

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.

Frothy, white head and clear. aroma has hints of herbs and grass, light yeast, peach (duh). Dry texture, with a very fizzy carbonation. Heavy sweet innitial flavor and finish. Peach is, of course, the dominant flavor, but it's not too overpowering. Very refreshing.

Poured from bottle into a tulip glass

Appearance –The beer pours a crystal clear light amber color with a peach like hue, as it is tinted with colors of orange and a bit of red. Upon pouring there is one finger of fizzy pure white head and tons of champagne like carbonation bubbles seen streaming up through the brew. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a bit of fizzy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is big and sweet with tons of fruity peach aromas and lots of Belgian candied sugar smells. Along with these aromas are some other lighter fruit aromas of apricot and apple as well as a hint of a sour and funky smell.

Taste – The taste begins with a huge sweet taste of peach, candied sugar, and apricot. As the taste advances the peach grows even stronger in flavor, really taking on the bulk of the sweetness of the brew. A lighter level of tartness and a hint of a grassy and herbal flavor develop more toward the end. In the end a massively sweet peach juice flavor, with just hints of a grass and tartness are left on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is quite high consisting of tons of tiny little carbonation bubbles. The thin body and prickly carbonation are fantastic for the sweet peach and lightly tart flavors of the beer, making this beer very refreshing and enjoyable.

Overall – While very-very sweet, the peach flavor is quite authentic and really is not all the cloying. With the tart and light grass flavors as well as the fantastic mouthfeel, the flavors end up making for a rather refreshing peach flavored sweet lambic.

Pours a real pretty murky orange color with a nice frothy white head. Smells like straight up peach with sour funk in the background.

This is a sipper for sure. Man this thing is sweet. But the sweetness tastes great to me. There again, the peaches dominate. It has a nice sour twang too.

Overall, a nice beer. More of a desert type beer. The sweetness makes this one a sipper. And I don't imagine you could drink more than one (maybe two) glasses in a sitting.

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.

Poured a orange color that was slightly hazed. Smelled of fresh peaches, sweet malts, and some caramel. Taste of fresh peaches and sweet malt, and some champagne flavor almost like a sparkling peach beverage. Very flavorful. Mouthfeel very light almost like champagne. Beer snobs may knock a good lambic such as this but they are being too purest and need to remember that beer is open to interpretation. Very drinkable and a highly memorable beer.

It poured a hazy orange golden yellow with a minimal amout of foam. The smell was of citrus fruit, not a strong peach smell, but, it reminded me of a sparkling cider. Tasting it was like drinking a sparkling cider but not as sweet. I could taste the peach, but not this beer was not overpowering. Nice sweet/tart flavor and finish in the mouth, with a pleasant after taste!

12 oz bottle poured into traditional pint glass

A - Pours an orangish/yellow color that is lightly opaque. Hmm, maybe this looks like the inside of a peach . Very minimal head and lacing. Still, an attractive looking lambic that actually looks like a traditional beer.

S - Not overpowering, but it certainly reeks of fresh peaches with a slight sour/funky Belgian scent coming through.

T - Woo! Tart peach flavor hints you hard in the middle of this beer, but thankfully its not the only attraction. Sure, its sweet at the front with a strong peach flavor, but there is a hint of Belgian yeast flavor that keeps things interesting. Low alcohol. More complex that other Lindemans offerings that I recall, but that might just be my poor memory talking.

M - Well carbonated and tingly, with a medium body and a sweet, fruity aftertaste.

D - A tasty change of pace in the beer world, and a bit less shocking that some other Lambics I've tasted. Worth trying out and perhaps cooking with.

Ok, must be honest, I've never really known what to look for in lambics, but I've heard good things and learning how to drink them is part of beer culture. So, I started in a place where I've always felt pretty comfortable with Lindemans.

Appearance: A little 12oz bottle that was both capped and corked. Orangish hue and syrupy pour.

Smell: Nothing too strong, just peach and tart. No hops or anything in the nose, but smells much like a Bellini.

Taste: Sweet and refreshing, much more so than I was expecting. This is only a beer by the broadest definition, but it's much like a mimosa or Bellini: light, easy-drinking, and refreshing.

Mouthfeel: Syrupy and sweet, it sticks around after the swallow. No alcohol burn whatsoever.

Drinkability: Very, very drinkable upfront, but a little sweet to be having several of. Alcohol-wise you'd probably go into a diabetic coma before getting all that drunk, but taste-wise it's spot-on and easy to go through.

I finally pulled this ber out of the ole closet to review after 2+ years. This was part of an experiment I have been doing to see if the Lindemans fruit beers gain a sour character as they age. Well it seems that not even two years will cut the sweetness. I'll get back to ya in 2007.

Appearance: Pours a clear Orangish Golden color with a dense half inch of head after a reserved pour. There are quite a few bubbles attached to the glass, and only a few rising to the top to maintain the head. The head stands for some time nonetheless. There are a few particles floating in a slow “suspended animation” like state not looking like they particularly want to go up or down. Decent lacing.

Aroma: The Peach is the most obvious part of the aroma, but there are also some pretty floral notes to this beer that I guess are from hops. The Peach is still so dominant after all this time, it’s pretty amazing.

Taste: It is very sweet the entire time. The Peaches come out to greet you early, and the aroma just leads into the taste. You have a flood of Peach pouring over you as you take this beer in. It just starts in the nose, and moves to your taste gradually. There is a slight sourness that starts to peek out somewhere in the middle to leave a slight prickly impression on the back of the tongue. Then it finishes dry and refreshing leaving you with a mouth full of Peaches.

Opinion: Golly gee, this beer still tastes like Kool-aid! I mean, don’t get me wrong…it is a wonderfully flavored beer. The Peach is just such a sweet and dominant force in the entire flavor profile that it completely obscures the fact that you are drinking the product of spontaneous fermentation at all. I would prefer it retain some of the “wild” characteristics. I have one more bottle of Peche. We'll see what a couple more years doe for it.

This was a really sweet beer. Not as sweet as Lindemans Framboise. The color was a hazy watered down orangish color. The smell was that of fresh peaches. It was very clean smelling. The taste was also very clean with a mild peach taste and a slight sourness and acidic taste. A most enjoyable drink. Im not a big fan of the sweet drinks but this one isnt too sweet, and that makes it an agreeable dessert drink.

Light/medium bodied, hazy apricot color like unfiltered cider, with a nice white head.

Aroma is mild, peaches with a tart earthy overtone.

The flavor is very definitely PEACH. It starts sweet but not quite like peach soda - more like a peach cobbler, as it is quickly followed by a very pleasant tartness and a yeasty/biscuity overtone, finishing slightly sour for a nice clean finish that leaves you wanting more. Definitely a desert ale, either stand alone or with an appropriate fruit dish.
