look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A- Cloudy Orange color, 3 finger head that fades very very slowly. Volumous Carbonation that dies into a slow moving carbonation. Lots and lots of lacing and sticking.

S- Smells like peaches, almost like orange cream soda but with peaches

T- Sweet peach tartness with a hint of beer. Wow lots of peach flavors that seem to just pop in your mouth.

M- It's an elegantly smooth body. Just medium with lots of bursting from the carbonation.

D- I could have one of these 25ozers on a good night. That's it though. Too sweet for anymore. Great Lambic though.

Another great offering from this great brewery. This is a great lambic. There is no mistaking it is a peach lambic. the peach is moderate to strong in flavor, somewhat sweet, a bit tart, but it balances well. this is a refreshing beer that happens to have a sweet taste and is a fruit based beer. again not all fruit beers are bad, were not talking about smirnoff or bacardi crap here, this isnt something sweet just to chug and get wasted, this is a beer to drink fo rthe enjoyment of drinking it, not just the buzz.

Poured from a 12oz green bottle.

Pours a nice cloudy darker shade of orange. Not much of a head which dissipates rather quickly, not a lot of lacing either. There is a small amount of sediment in the bottle, but not as much as the larger 750ml bottles which seem to have a lot more.

The aroma is very nice. Sweet and sour. There is a nice sweet peach smell, and also a smell of sour and tartness.

The taste is delicious. Starts out sweet with a nice taste of peaches which quickly turns to some sour tartness with the peach flavors still there. There is also some very slight malt and yeast flavors that seem to be hidden very well. The finish is peachy and tart. The peach flavors are present throughout. Very nice mouthfeel, and very drinkable.

Overall this is a delicious beer. One of my favorites from Lindeman's.

750ml green bottle corked and capped. Obtained at Hannaford's Supermarket Derry, NH. Golden in color slightly hazy with a half inch off white head that shortly lasted. fruity smell with a nice peach scent with a slight vinegar scent but not overly pronounced. peachy but not syrupy with a sour finish. reminds me of biting into a nice ripe sweet peach in the middle of summer. light and crisp mouthfeel. very drinkable beer especially for summer/early fall.

One of the great fruit lambic beers.

Appearance: Creamy fluffy head that lasts several minutes and dissipates into thin lace on the sides of the glass. Rich cloudy gold color. An attractive looking beer.

Smell: Peach, roses, cut grass, malt, faint hop notes.

Taste: Tart, acidic, sweet, wonderful peach flavor, a little beery at the end, in a good way, clean finish.

Mouthfeel: Light, crisp, and refreshing, pleasant light carbonation.

Drinkability: Excellent. However, it is a fruit beer so it's best for special occasions and meals so as not to wear out its charm.

Three law students drank this beer prior to attending class, and it is the only thing that has gotten us through thus far.

If you like ciders or hefewiesens even, it is definitely the way to go. Great for those who don't like beer.

Good times had by all!

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.

Pours a cloudy yellowish orange with a creamy head that disappeared pretty quickly. Left some lacing down the glass.

Smells very fruity and sweet/citrus and a bit corky (which threw me when I was opening it as I wasn't expecting it to have a cork)

Tasted very tangy and citrussy. Reminded me of a tamrind flavour rather than peach but the more I drank the more the peach flavours became evident. Sweet to start with then the tangy acidity to follow. Very crisp.

Not too heavy on the carbonation and light and refreshing on the mouth.

Not a bad drop.

It pours a honey yellow color with a small head. The smell and taste is of a fresh peach and not much else. It is very sweet but not in a way to overdo it. If you like a nice fruity drink this is a perfect one.

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.

A- Pours golden amber orange with a little white head and okay lacing

S- Smell is very sweet with hints of yeast

T/M- Taste is very strong of peaches, very good carbonation and smooth. Taste a lot like a cider

D- This would be one for desert or just to drink beer, but not with a meal. It is very tasty and I would defiantly go for it again. It is very sweet and I probable would not be able to drink a number of them because of the sweetness

Was expecting a higher ABV brew out of lambics, but I guess I had the wrong interpretation of the style. Poured a hazy, hefe looking color with all cream head and laced the sniffer very nicely, but for me, it all went downhill after that. The smell was very nice and peach, but the taste was tart and hard to drink. I got a sick, quesy feeling after finishing off a bomber, not a good feeling either. My stomach was churning like hell as was my gag reflex...the mouthfeel is quite heavy however, I'm assuming because of the fruit additives, but because of its tartness and wear on my stomach, I don't think I'll be revisting the fruit lambics for awhile...I considered this more peach champange than beer, and I didnt even feel a buzz for what its worth

In a Lindemans flute.

A: Solid head and lacing. Extreme retention. Color and clarity are a bit off.

S: Plenty of sour notes. Green apple is dominant but there is a definite amount of peach in there. Sweetness is also very present. I detect no funk at all, which is how I like it with fruit lambics.

T: Excellent balance of sweet and sour, leans a bit more toward the sweet than I'd like. Plenty of peach notes. The sweetness is thankfully not at all artificial. Very slight bitterness comes at the end. No funk.

M: Good balance of thinness and crispness.

O: Combination of sweet and sour is very well balanced so it is unlikely that it will burn out the palate. Low ABV means many can be had. This would make an excellent session beer.

Purchased at Bevmo in Pasadena/CA/USA.
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.

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.

A: Pours A hazy apricot orange color with a pretty thick 1 finger head in my Maredsous glass.

S: Sweet peaches, honey, pale malt, tart.

T: Another amazing lambic from Lindemans. Immediately sweet on the palate with peaches, followed by sweet graininess from the malt, then it gets more sour and tart and finishes sweet like honey. It is really hard to describe this one, but it is damn good.

M: Smooth, but puckering and prickly at some points. Carbonation is dead on for the style, nips at the tongue.

D: Not very high. This is one to sip and savor.

Amber color, slightly peach colored, small head dissapated quickly.

Smelled strongly of peaches, although smelled a little stale.

First sip brought peaches from beginning to end, carbonation was strong making seem a little like champagne. bubbly, and fruity very sweet.

Peaches cover up any bitterness and carbonation plays on the palate.

Not an everyday beer, but on a special occassion I'd love to pop a cork on this for dessert.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a flute.

Pours a clear apricot/peach color with a thin fizzy head that goes away like ginger ale.

The nose is all peach. Smells wonderful- both sweet and sour.

Taste is sour peaches at first followed by a wave of sweetness. Some slight beer flavor but the peach is so up front its hard to get much more out of it. This is my first lambic, so I'll have to come back to this after I've adjusted to the style more.

Mouthfeel is light with a good bit of carbonation. The sour in the front is slightly puckering but it mellows out nicely.

Drinkability is high. This is delicious.

This fruit based beer is pleasantly good, has great small, no edge, and no after taste. It pours golden, with a sparkling haze, one finger sized head, and medium amount of carbonation. It goes down light, not filling, and doesn't leave the mouth dry. It has a sugary and peach taste, with little to no hops/malt taste. Very little alcohol, good for starting the night out...

Thank Jebus!! Belgian brew has finally made it to good ole New Hampshire! The color of this brew matches with its fruit. Pillowy white head with good retention. Somewhat candyish peach nose with slight must. Finishes fruity with a slight bit of sourness. Would go nicely with the sunset and your significant other.

Appearance: Orange, almost (not surprisingly) peach-colored and slightly cloudy. Light head disaptes almost immediately. If the color weren't so dark, it might look like champagne.

Smell: Sweet smelling with peach and apricot coming through strongly.

Taste: Sweet with strong peach flavoring, but unlike the Cassis or Frambois the fruit doesn't overpower the flavor. It still tastes like beer. This is a good thing.

Mouthfeel: Light and bubbly, feels a lot like an artificially carbonated wine. Really enjoyable and easy to drink several.

Drinkability: If you're in the mood for something sweet and easy drinking this is it. I could sit around drinking this all night.

This won't be to everyone's taste. It is, after all, a fruit flavored beer. If you are a fan of fruit beers, this is a must.

Pours a clear medium gold with a nice head and leaves some lacing on the glass. The smell is of peaches and yeast. Taste is first of tart peaches and wheatbeer yeastiness. Sourness on the back of the tongue. Light, fruity and bubbly. Sweetness is well balanced by the tartness and yeasty "beeryness". Very drinkable and refreshing.

This not my first venture into the realm of the fruit beers and it won't be my last. Despite me being Darth Tyberious, Lord of the Dark Beer, I found this one quite enjoyable. I was thinking that with the weather getting warmer that I'd experiment with other lighter beers and I'm glad I did. Let's get down to the brass tax...

A: Champaign. Light golden color with a one to two finger head. Clear with visible carbonation trails.

S: Fruity sweetness without being sicking. A little tartness, a little woodsiness...

T: Not at all what I expected but enjoyable. Very light flavor but nothing really out front of overbearing. Light peachy sweetness up front with peachy tartness trailing.

M: Light and very easy on the mouth. A little bubbly but not as bubbly as champaign.

D: Very drinkable. Weighing in at 4% I found that I could finish the entire 750ML bottle easily.

The only thing that caught me off guard was the fact that this has a cork that requires a cork screw. This might show my limits but this is a first - I'm use to a cork that has a cage. I had to hunt down a cork screw. Regardless, very nice!

Poured from a bottle into a flute. I intentionally poured a big head. Big bubbles are sticking to the side of the flute in the Peche body. Streams of tiny bubbles are flowing up from the bottom straight through the center causing the head to remain about 0.250" around the periphery. Very delicate. Nice laces. Body is slightly hazy and the color is like dark balsa. Head is white and also delicate.

Smells a bit like peach and a bit like Asti. Tastes like very sweet peach champagne. Not dry at all. Has some floral or rosy traces. Also, I get some mixed tropical fruit tastes. Overall pleasant taste. I like it.

Feels very light bodied, very cold, and of tiny bubbles.

Good and drinkable. I only buy singles of this, one at a time but very drinkable none the less.

i feel like i have been putting a lot o diclaimers in front of reviews lately but here it goes, i dont like peaches and this is only my 5th lambic, so deal..creamy baje beer with a hearty white head. looks lighter towards the bottom. smells of grass and peaches from a can. my best taste analogy is a peach creamsaver(i dont know if they really have one but work with me) with an acidic center. i dont know why i bought a peach beer, but i'd already tryed the rasberry one and was trying boon's kriek. also wood and grassy ntoes in there as well. my stomach feels like is is rotting from the inside out so low drinkability. mothfeel if very full, and thick, and syrupy, it hink this is part of the reason it reminds me of a creamsaver.
