Smaller bottle, classy with foil, cork and a cap. Pours slightly hazy, orangy, amber. Tiny bubble film remains after a minute or two of the pour. long stringy, relaxed lacing on the glass. Nose is fruity, sweet and delicate. Lucious melons, peaches, fruits of a thousand nations flow in the glass. Not nearly as sour as some other Lambics I've tried, this one is sweet and tasty. Great with desert, berries, ice cream etc etc.

Before going in, I'll admit I'm a sucker for this style, or used to be, for I haven't had this variety in 2-to-3 years, if memory serves rightly. After trying so many others since, what do I think now, hmmmm?
Clear, light, peachy hue, with a nice showing of milky white foam on top, dotted with bubbles, softly skimming down to a faint ring, very attractive.
Lift to the nose, and:peachy as can be, sweet, yet also tart, like a Jolly Rancher, by gum. Very fruity, but not overly sweet or cloying in the least, tastefully balanced.
To drink, soft and sweet, juicy and fruity, with a limited texture, but very pleasant flavor. Happily rings the mouth with deliciousness, you can't stop from sipping, there's just the right, in this case, balance of sweet vs. tart, and here the peachy sweetness has just a slight edge, but not so much that it's a treacly mess in the mouth. Lively mouthfeel, excellent carbonation, full-bodied, delightful finish.
Screw champagne, move over, Mimosas, or, damn, what's th one at with peaches? Bellinis! Forget about 'em, take on one of these tasties as a nightcap or toast to your sweetie.
Nice to know I can still appreciate the stuff, though it will remain a special occasion only kind of selection.

Poured from a bottle into a flute, the beer is a bright, orange-gold coloring with steady carbonation and a frothy, bubbly, bright white head. Aromas of rich, hearty peach, with an effervescent tartness that borders on sour. The nose is light enough that it avoids being overpowering like some Lambics. Flavors of subtle roast with a peach flavor that honestly tastes like fresh pureed peaches. Very authentic and balanced. Wow. Smooth bodied, light, and crisp, making it very easy to drink. The aftertaste is subtle rich and sweet peach, with a slight linger after the clean, smooth finish. Very easy to drink, and very tasty.

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.

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.

I've been buying the Lindeman's line for my girlfriend and this one was new for her. This beer pours a light bodied and a bright and vibrant sunset orange in color with a one finger cream colored head. It smells of peach pie, ice cream, and has a spritzer like carbonation. It really does smell like peach cobbler. It tastes of sweet and slightly syrupy peaches. It has really good flavor but it is a tad sweet but is still very tasty. The aftertaste is pretty nice as well as the peach mellows out. It drinks very light and isn't overly sticky despite all of the sugar. This could have been tart, more like a geueze, but it definitely doesn't aim to be sour. This is one of the better Peach inspired lambics and worth a try.

My girlfriend says that this one is "perfect".

Pours a clear yellowish / orange color with a thin 1/4" head. The aroma is killer, as the fruit is easily detectable while holding the brew an arms length away from my nose. The flavor is of sweet apricots and peaches, but balanced with a musky yeast tone.

Light-medium in body and high carbonation levels create a crisp mouthfeel. The fruit flavors ride on the tongue briefly after swallowing. Nicely drinkable, but one can not have a few of these without having a fruity sweetness overload.

The beer pours a pure gold color with a thin white head that fades to lacing. There is a lot of carbonation around the outside of the glass. The aroma is decent. It seems a bit dry, but the majority is of sour peaches. The taste is good. It is rich and very tart. It has an intense sour peach flavor that is quite enjoyable. The mouthfeel is good. It is a medium bodied beer with good carbonation. This drinks very well. I love lambic beers. Lindemans has the best that I've tried.

After drinking lots of Bud last night with friends, I needed a beer to start my day off right. This is where Lindeman's Pêche comes in. On to the beer:

Poured into a stange, the color is a faded orange topped by a fuzzy white head. The flavor in this one is pretty straight-forward, some peaches, balanced by some sourness, with a trace of malts. Did I mention it's delicious? Who needs orange juice for the morning when you can serve yourself a peach lambic? I'll definately have this another time, but it's a little pricey to have everyday.

The beer pours a clear yellow color with a white head. The aroma is strong peaches with some light tartness. The flavor is strong syrupy peaches with a little bit of tartness. Medium carbonation and medium mouthfeel. This has nothing in common with other Belgian lambics but as far as fruit beers go, this is a good one.

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

Poured from a bottle into a Lindemans flute.

Appearance: Pale golden body with a crackling light head and a bit of lace.

Smell: Big fruity peach and sour lambic aromas flare my nostril.

Taste: A straight-forward tangy lambic. Peach notes and some yeasty funk are there in the flavor profile, just a tiny pinch of alcohol is noticable and light grains. Gueuze like sour note tempered by mild soft peach skin.

Mouthfeel. High level of carbonation, spritzy, semi-dry, almost like a soda.

Overall: A solid lambic with peaches added, not my favorite from Lindemans but still very tasty.

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

Poured from 12oz bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: slightly hazy light cidery gold with a finger of dense white foam. Quite nice.

Smell: tart, almost spicy aroma with the distinct smell of peach. It's not quite as sweet-smelling as some of the other Lindemans lambics. Nice.

Taste: tart, a little sweet and peachy. This is really quite tasty, if heavy on the peach. The peach is pretty natural tasting and not candy-like, which I appreciate. The aftertaste is a little dusty or metallic-tasting; it's not off-putting but I could do without it. Still quite good.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied with a little carbonation. Not bad.

Drinkability: this is one tasty beer, but it is among my least favorite of the Lindemans lambic flavors. I'd definitely drink it again, but not everyday.

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

Pours into my 25cl tulip glass with an initial, almost two-finger thick, pale, off-white colored head that manages to leave some layered lace patterns on the sides of my glass. The beer is a brilliantly clear honey color, but shows a bright gold color when held up to the light. The aroma is dominated by clear peach notes; smells lightly sweet with a strong, floral peach note. No matter how I try I can't smell anything else, in fact I made myself light-headed even trying.

Sweet, well very sweet and well carbonated. It tastes like a peach soda, though it has a thickness to it that no soda has. The carbonation is ample and makes this quite fizzy feeling. Peach flavors are of course prominent here, though with peach being a fairly soft fruit flavor, the sweetness seems to trump the peach character. There is perhaps a touch of a lactic twang in the finish, that just might show there was some Lambic harmed in the making of this brew, but really this is all about being a sweet, fizzy peach-soda. As the beer warms up a bit the peach notes become on par with the sweetness.

Really not beer, refreshing and tasty as a soda, though it is a bit too sweet & thick to be a great example of that.

Pours a bubbly orangish gold.

Smells strongly of peaches and a bit of oak.

Tastes intensely of peaches. Very sweet tart flavor with a slight woodiness to it too.

Mouthfeel is good, the acid and carbonation mildly sting your tongue.

Drinkability, this is definitely a special dessert beer, it is to sweet to drink in quantity.

12 oz. bottle,

A: Pours a cloudy peach-orange, really looks like a non-fruit beer, as is the colour of peach fruit, good long-lasting head, spotty lace.

S: Artificial peach, not horrible, one-dimensional and not a smell I could go nuts over like the Framboise.

T: Peach candy, definitely not over the top with sugar though. The flavour is well integrated with the acid, some sourness and malt in the finish.

M: Mildly acidic, sweet but not cloying though, moderate aftertaste.

D: A good beer, anyone who likes peaches will like this. Not overtly fruity and sugary as the Framboise.

Poured into a tulip glass and received a cider-like body with a mountainous head that died quickly but left lace patches thanks to an immense carbonation. A hoppy smell with sour peach notes and a light sweet malt smell; reminded me of a white wine or a heavy apple juice smell. Very smooth, almost slick and buttery, this light-to-medium bodied beer maintains a distinct peach taste and is also sweet. Finished with a drying backbite from a hopkick that put up minor citric notes. Maybe a tad too sour and fruity for a sessioning, but I gladly look forward to having this again.

A: Poured a bright, clear, beautiful golden peach with a fluffy white head.

S: Upon first opening there were notes of lingering apple juice. On the nose was a fresh , sugary peach aroma that was soft and perfumy.

T: The initial flavor was sweet fresh sugary peaches. The palate was very crisp and clean on the finish. The beer was nicely balanced and flavor is sweet .

M: The mouthful was light with a soft carbonation.

D: Drinks like peach flavored juice with almost no alcohol detection at all. Drank exceptionally smooth and clean. a tad sugary sweet which may limit multiples.

This pours from 12oz bottle(cost $5.65) a clear gold with a small but firm head of foam that shrinks to a big island in the middle and it has some nice lacing.

The smell is a wonderful nose of fresh peaches.

The taste is of fresh tartish peaches, a little bit of yeast, and a bit of wood. A few more sips in and the sweetness increases but in a nice way.. So easy to drink and so tasty, it has a medium light mouthfeel and the carbonation is light. It finishes on the sweet side with just a slight twang also present. Very nice fruit beer that I'd buy again.

Bottom line: I really enjoy the fruit Lambics from Lindemans. I recommend them.

Serving type: 750 ml. bottle.

Pours a golden orange color with thin white head. Aroma is very sour dominated by peach (of course) and alcohol. Very nice balance of tart sourness and sweet pech flavor. Better than I expected based on it's appearance and aroma.

12oz. corked and capped bottle poured into a tulip. No bottled date.

(A)- Pours a clear pale orange color that produced a 1-finger sized white head that stuck around for awhile.

(S)- A ripe peach/apricot fruit aroma in front of a lightly sour/tangy hay.

(T)- Ripe peach and apricot fruits that turn into a sweet yet lightly sour background.

(M)- A good carbonation level that lightly spritzes to life on the tongue. Lightly sour with sweet ripe fruits; a solid acidity to it that is lip smacking good.

(D)- I realize that many bash the lambics that Lindemans puts out, but I rather have enjoyed them thus far. Fruity and lightly sour with good acidity. What I like about them is that they tend to be a more fruit-driven take on the style rather than a face melting sourness. Very food friendly and just plain easy and enjoyable to drink. I look forward to trying the other flavors they offer.

Peach colored liquid, drops an inch of white head on the top, aroma was sweet peaches. Overly sweet.

Overly sweet becomes a theme for the beer, as the taste is largely sugar. Peach in the background, sugar sweetness dominates. The peach is there, just damn, why you need so much sugar? Get this bad boy going sour, not sweet, it would greatly improve.

(Poured into a tapered strange)

A- This beer pours a bright crystal clear copper hue with a thin wisp of white foam that is perfectly smooth and then soon gone. There is a sea of microbubbles racing to the surface.

S- The in your face peach perfume aroma has hints of butterscotch that take on more of a light caramel syrup quality as the beer warms. There is a touch of white cheese rind and honey in the finish.

T- This beer is full of sweet peach flavor that is bright and artificial. The sweetness lingers and there is not much underneath that flavor.

M- The light mouthfeel has a scrubbing fizz in the finish with no alcohol heat noticed.

O- The peach flavor is so darn sweet but it is not as syrupy thanks to the big fizz. There isn't much depth in this beer but it is not really offensive to drink. However one is enough.

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.
