VinegarStroke (210) - Napa, California, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Bottle: Slight haze, golden, light to medium white head. That initially pours thick. Very lifted apple, toffee, candy nose. Lacks complexity but clean and pure. Baked. Slightly sweet but not bitter. Fresh not sour. Palate is just dominated by apples and malt.. Nice simple beer. Easy drink.

harrymel (1450) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 17, 2013
Unk bottle date. Nice, standard yellow ale with a scattered foam top. Excellent clarity. SMells like apple jolly ranchers. Smells nicely of green apples when sweet and ripe. Nice, crisp apple flavor with the slightest sourness on it. Reminds me of, again, apple jolly ranchers. Thin with higher carb and a wet finish. Yummy beer. Serving type: bottle 01-08-2012

AtronSeige (473) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - DEC 10, 2013
Aroma: Green apple, slight barnyard sourness, Appearance: Clear light gold body. Spare white head. Lacing. Flavour: Strong initial sourness, followed by apple acidity, followed by soft sweetness. Light barnyard sourness. Palate: Medium body, soft, fizzy carbonation. Overall: I expected the acidity to hit hard! Very enjoyable! 250 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Tanja! 17F. Fruit Lambic

ruigo (874) - PORTUGAL - DEC 8, 2013
Shared a 375ml bottle from Delheize (Luxembourg). Pours a yellow golden colour with a thin lacing. Aroma is apples and wild yeast. Average to high carbonation and light body. Taste is complex with sour, bitter and sweet flavours acting at the same time. Overall, a very good beer resembling a cider.

Bottle. Hazy deep golden color with a thin head. Sweet and sour aroma of apple marmalade with some lambic notes. Very sweet taste of apple.

AndySnow (2500) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 27, 2013
How: Draught.
Where: The Bishops Arms (Folkungagatan), Stockholm.
Appearance: Hazy golden colour with a small white head.
Aroma: Sweet apple.
Body: Medium body, low carbonation.
Flavour: Fresh, sweet apple, a bit acidic.
Comment: Only had this draught, but been told it is far superior on draught than bottled. Will have to taste it bottled to know for sure, but afraid this will ruin the beer for me. Might as well stick to the good draught version.
