This beer poured a orange pinkish color and had a white head that did not last very long at all. There was nice lacing after I was finished. The smell was slightly peach, but it mostly smelled like champagne.

The taste was a slightly sweet peach flavor and alcohol, again it tasted a lot like champagne. The CO2 was very strong and it was very crisp.

All in all not a bad beer, but I like Lindeman's Rasberry alot better.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a deep orange/gold color, with a short but dense white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is full of peaches along with some Belgian yeast, wheat and light malts

T: The taste starts out very sweet with a strong peach flavor as you would expect. The some breadiness comes in from flavors of wheat, wild Belgian yeast and a thin malt character. There's a decent balance for a beer so sweet. Likewise the after-taste is quite sweet.

M: Smooth and a little crisp, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

D: Tasty especially if you're into peaches, goes down easily, not too filling, very mild kick, good representation of style, while it's a little on the sweet side, it done much better than most regular fruit beers.

Really a striking peach color. Light head goes to a thin skim. Lots of tiny bubbles. Smells of peaches -- medicinal, chough syrupy peaches.

Holy cow, does it get sour on the back of your tongue. But other that that, it's like peach candy. Light and fizzy mouthfeel. Very fizzy.

Not bad, but not much like beer. Very sour, but kinda tasty.

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.

"Fuzzy", hazy orange, nice white head that settles to a tiger eye maple burl pattern in an open chalice. Laces in big dots of foam. Tart aroma, some sense of acrid cheesiness (see below) -- not overly peach at all. The flavor, on the other hand starts very peachy and with lots of musty yeast but finishes with acidity and a better than expected sourness for a Lindemans Lambic. This was better than I expected, more like what I believe is a true Lambic sense, not as sugary as it could have been.

Note: On looking at the copyright of Merchant Du Vin (importer) on the label, it said 1992 -- older than the other copyright 1999 Lindemans bottles I have at home. This may be quite an old bottle, though I'm no expert on the aging flavor profiles for Lambics.

Bottle at Chancey Smith's in London, ON- A hazy yellow pour, is topped with a frothy eggshell cap that leaves nice lace. Full on fresh peach aroma, some yeast, tart citrus, smells inviting. Tastes sweet and tart. Lots of peach of course with a tart citric component that balances the sweetness. A bit of hops lead to a grassy finish. Very peachy and not overly complex, but refreshing and enjoyable. Thanks for the bottle Milos!

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.

Bottle bought a few months ago at the State Liquor Store. I have to be in the right mood to enjoy this, and it was pretty nice. Pours out a initially quite large white head that goes down to almost nothing. A beautiful clear copper body. The aroma is...well what do you expect peaches, both sweet canned kinds and a more natural tart kind. The taste was similar; it leaned towards a sugary sweet peach flavor, but some balance is achieved by a more tart flavor. Fizzy and highly carbonated. Not bad at all.

Poured a clear orange body with small white head that died almost immediately.

The nose was a mix of cork, wood, fruit, sour peaches, fruit, sugar and sweet peaches. As weird as it sounds it reminded me of my grandparent’s basement.

The taste was medium bodied with a gumball like taste. This beer tasted almost exactly like strawberry gum. Sugary sweet and notes of very tart peaches. The thing is, there’s also a mix of all sorts of other fruits as well. More of a fruit cocktail with a slight bitterness. There’s some slight wood and cork as well.

A nice, decent peach lambic. Felt like my teeth were going to rot, but

I only tried this because I've never tried a lambic and it was recommended by the Naked Pint. It was definitely worth a try, but frankly, doesn't taste at all like "beer."

I was hesitant to try it, as my first experience with a peach beer was Dogfish Head's Festina Peche, which I absolutely loathed.

My girlfriend says it tastes like a peach bellini, which is apparently a mimosa with peach nectar instead of orange juice. I guess I agree. It is bubbly and sweet, with just a hint of tart. Very drinkable - low alcohol, and a it would be a pleasing dessert drink if you are into that sort of thing.

Anna says: pair it with a nutty cheese like parrano.

bottle poured into a snifter. pours a bright golden orange color with no head and a thin white rim. no lacings or retention.

aroma is mainly of sweet peaches with little else in the nose. not much in the nose as far as beer goes, only peach and a light sweetness that adds a candy-like quality.

taste is of more sweet peaches with the same light sweetness from the aroma. there aren't any redeeming qualities were as far as malts or hops. sweet peaches; thats about it on the palate.

mouthfeel is sweet and medium bodied. goes down sweet with residual peach and a sticky afftertaste.

drinkability is decent. as far as beer goes, there is not really any maly or hop qualities, and no distinct yeast notes either. for what it is, it is well put together, but it ends up tasting like fruit juice with a light carbonation.

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.

Enjoyed in a snifter

A: pours a yellow-orange color. Pours with roughly 1" head with a creamish color. Lots of lacing.

S: smell is very sweet. Strongest scent is obviously the peach.

T: very good flavor. Starts off very sweet and peachy and finishes tarty. Not too carbonated.

M: due to the changes in flavor and acidity this beer keeps the palate awake. Not to juicy, not too carbonated, easy to drink.

Overall, I like this lambic. As stated it is not too juicy but not too carbonated. It has a strong sweet peach flavor and combined with the tarty finish makes it very enjoyable.Has well balanced flavor.

Poured into a tulip. Bright hazy orange-amber color with a fluffy bright white foamy head. The foam stayed for a bit and then settled into a thin wispy cap. First aromas were funky: horse blanket and yeasty followed quickly by a nice peach presence. The taste was not what I expected - not mouth-puckering.I would describe it as only slightly tart. Heavy, rich sweet peach flavor, a mall amount of funk, and a sweet tart finish. A heavy mouthfeel from the sweetness and medium-to-low carbonation. More one-dimensional than I expected. A nice pleasant peachy drink but I'd like to have something more complex.

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.

Kind of peachy in color that fades to a pale golden color when held up to the light. Thin fizzy white head a spotty salava like lacing.
My favorite quality of the Lindeman beers are the aromas. This one fills the olefactory senses with more peach aroma than one of those scented candels.
Sweet peachy flavor and plenty of it. It has a tartness in the finish that keeps it from being too sweet though.
Mouthfeel is so sticky sweet this beer could give you cavities.
Overall I like this one best of the Lindeman Lambics but if they could just tone down the sweetness a bit I'd like it a bit more.

After having the Framboise from this brewery, I was a little taken aback by this beer.
The same lack of head as on other lambics I've had, slightly cloudy, a golden orange-ish color.
The smell is very pronounced peach/apricot with some subtle others I still can't identify.
Taste is the biggest surprise to me with this beer, much more sour than I expected based on above mentioned experience and the wonderful sweet smell I was getting.
Mouthfeel was fairly smooth, a little hoppier than I expected, but good. Very effervescent on the tongue, much like a champagne.
Not a bad beer by any stretch, but quite different from in the mouth versus the Framboise. Well worth drinking or sharing with friends looking for something different, a dessert type drink.

This lambic pours orange and fizzy. Definitely have to warm it up or it just tastes like peach soda.

There is a nice peach aroma that improves with warming.
The first thing you get is the sweet peach taste. Not nasty sweet like a dessert wine, and not quite as sweet as orange soda, but it's sweet. There's no hop bitterness, as you would expect. There is a obvious tartness and then a mild sourness that cuts the sweetness off. Really tastes like soda or cider. The sourness at the end really saves it from being one-sided though.

I had a wine and beer party where I offered tiny tastes of different wines and beers. There were a bunch of girls there who just don't drink, haven't developed any taste for tannins or hops. Just a drop of this peach lambic and they all loved it. So, in summary, nice sweet fruity drink that may be especially appreciated by the uninitiated. I have no doubt that less mainstream lambics must have more complexity, though I have not tried any.

While I may not be the biggest fan of peaches, this is one of the few types of lambics I have not tried, so i decided i'de try a bottle. Poured a bright golden color...nothing that stuck out for me too much to be honest. Smell was pleasent, with soft peach flavor, juicy nectar, and sweet sugar. Taste was incredibly similar to apple juice...not too sweet, not too sour. Starts off very juicy, then ends off on a dry note. I would say mouthfeel was medium, in that it was sort of syrupy. Not bad on the drinkability scale, but one bottle of this was enough for me. I think next time I will stick with the kriek or the framboise, but still very interesting. Cheers

16 oz. bottle.

Clear, dark gold color. Medium sized, white head. Lively carbonation.

Aroma was peaches and roses.

Taste was...peaches. Vitamin C/acidic/tartness in there. Herbal and grassy character as well - surprisingly bitter & lingering in the aftertaste. Some honey flavor.

Medium body. High carbonation. Very sweet.

Good if you like peach. My wife really enjoyed it. Not really my type of beer - more like a peach soda.

This is most likely the beer that my fiance and I will be toasting with at our wedding since I'm a beer geek and my fiance is cool enought to let me toast with beer instead of champagne! We will be using fruit lambics since everyone (even wine drinkers) tend to like them.

A - Hazy golden brew with a two finger head that falls to a solid cap and leaves tons of lace on the glass.

S - Yeasty peach and apricot muffin aroma. Light, sweet fruit. Much more fruity, and less beer-like than some of the other Lindemans fruit lambics.

T - Again, lots of yeasty bready warm peach muffin flavors. Peach and apricot scones. Delicate and pretty damn complex, but WAY TO DAMN SWEET.

M - Medium to full bodied with a nice sour twang of acidity. Refreshing and palate-cleansing.

D - This is more drinkable than Lindemans other offerings, and it is more beer-like than the Kriek, Pomme, or Framboise. An extremely refreshing, but cloyingly sweet brew. I like lambics for their tartness and complexity, and this lacks both of those important compnents.

Pours a clear bubbly orange to gold with a bright white head. Slight funkiness in the nose with just a hint of vinegar and a lot of juicy peach aroma. Taste is sweet and sour peach with just a hint of funky yeast and even less of a beer like malt backdrop. Tartness helps balance it to keep it short of cloying, but it could still be a bit less sweet overall. Comes off much like a peach spritzer with a nice bubbly body, that is easy to drink.

Yeah!
This beer actually reminds me a lot, A LOT, of a few American Strong Ales I've tried. The beer is sour, as sour as Lindeman's gets, while also maintaining real beer flavour, which I DON'T expect from Lindeman's.

I love it. Sour, and peachy. It's a rotten peach that's been dropped in the finest helles. I love it.

Yeah, it's cool. It lacks the yoghurt flavours I've experienced with other fruit lambics. If I didn't know what it was, I'd mistake it for an overly yeasty fruit ester beer.

Yeah.

Pours a hazed golden orange with a fluffy beige head. Peaches and sweet apples dominate the nose. Some gariny notes, but nothing that sets of any bells that this is really a lambic. Extremely sweet flavors of peach with a slight bit of green apple tartness in the finish. Too sweet for my liking. I'm sure sugar is added. I suppose it good if you like peaches and have a serious sweet-tooth.

12 fl oz / 355 ml brown glass bottle with pressure cap over cork served into a Brown Palace mini-hefeweissbier glass in high altitude Castle Rock, Colorado. Reviewed live.

A: Pours a two finger head of light cream, okay thickness, and average retention - though the ABV is low. Colour is a clear gold.

Sm: Light sourness and yeast, bacteria, with some funk overshadowed by peach. Very pleasant and inviting. Maybe slight apple.

T: Peach and sourness, with a cidery apple-esque finish. Very nicely balanced, without too much sourness to compromise the balance. Not too yeasty. No alcohol comes through (not that I expected it to at 4.00%). Not extract based like some bad lambics. Well built for its aims.

Mf: Smooth and wet, with a more lightly dry and coarse finish. Near perfect considering the flavours.

Dr: Very drinkable: ALL GIRLS LOVE THIS BEER (and Allagash White). I'd definitely have it again; it may be best out of the bottle rather than on draught. It's a bit too cidery - especially on the finish - but it is a refreshing little beer.

B-
