12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 9/9/2013. Pours slightly hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lightly tart green apple, pear, white grape, hay, grass, candi sugar, light honey, slight funk, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of apples, pale malt, and fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of tart green apple, pear, white grape, hay, grass, candi sugar, light honey, slight funk, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of fruity tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of green apple, pear, white grape, hay, straw, grass, candi sugar, light honey, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of apples, pale malt, and fruit yeast flavors; with a good sweetness/tartness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 3.5%. Overall this is a very good sweetened fruit lambic style. All around good robustness and balance of apples, pale malt, and fruity yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. This is more pleasantly flavored than the other variants, but still a nicely enjoyable offering.

Bit cloudy golden ochre with thin white head that persists ok. Natural aroma of green apples. Light and fizzy, sweet, just tiny bit sourness, light body. I enjoyed, pure and natural and very easy to drink. More nuances maybe but this is supposed to be apple beer..so..maybe not more needed, works nicely at least for me.

Pours a hazy straw gold with a white head and lacing. It has a sweet aroma of sour apple and sugar. The flavor is all sour apple with a slightly malty finish over a medium body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

_angst_ (3274) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 9, 2015
Bottle bought @ Systembolaget. Pours hazy yellow with a frothy and slightly fizzy white head that quickly dissipates while leaving some sparse spotty trace on the glass. Smell is sweet and fruity with cereal, apple must, hay, powdered sugar and lemon peal. Taste is slightly sweet, sour, fruity and tiny funky with wheat crackers, cereal, apple must, lemon juice, hay, dry soil, minerals, white sugar, lemon zest and hints of barnyard. Mouthfeel is sparkling, slightly tart and light to medium bodied. Finish is sweet and sour with crackers, apple must, lemon juice, hay, dry soil, white sugar, lemon peal and hints of barnyard. Can’t beleive it’s taken me this long to try this. Actually better than I though. Lambic cider softdrink...
