On tap at the Sharp Edge. Hazy gold, white head. Aroma is tart green apple pie. Flavor is the same. This lambic has an authentic apple taste where other lambics and fruit beers tastes like chemical apple.

I must have gotten a bad bottle. Pours a cloudy gold with some white head that leaves a bit of lacing. Nose is, surprise, surprise - apple. To me it already reminds me of an apple Jolly Rancher. Reminds me too much of the candy and lacks maturity. Taste is nasty. Tastes like sour apple. Like that candy was melted and morphed into a drink. It gets more tolerable as times goes on, as is typical with Lindemans brew. But really. Eck. You might as well put this in a bottle and let your kid drink it as apple juice, if it weren’t for the alcohol in it. No way am I going to be able to finish this bottle...or an inch more of what is in the glass. Horrid. The only thing I can think that would save this is a proper pairing with food.

The beer was cloudy yellow-orange with light foam and had the aroma of green apples. Mildly earthy sour green apple flavor. Very refreshing not too sweet.

leaparsons (9256) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2007
Bottle. Hazy orange gold with a small head. Aromas are apple juice. Flavours are apple juice with some citrus sourness. OK, but not a lot going on.

Guerde (1259) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 4, 2007
(bottle, thanks Akevitt) Pours a cloudy gold color with a white head. Aroma of baked apples, apple cider, and some brown sugar. Taste is somewhat tart but also sweet with a finish of buttered apples.

sthlm (1268) - Duluth, Minnesota, USA - SEP 3, 2007
[Bottle, thanks akevitt] Pours a very cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma is of tart apple. Taste is very similar to a green apple jolly rancher. Not the highest quality lambic, but very drinkable nonetheless.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 3, 2007
Light sour apple nose with minimal funk. cloudy orange-yellow with white head around the edges. Sweet apple flavor with a little tartness. Tastes better than many cider’s I’ve had.

boboski (1095) - Alabama, USA - AUG 28, 2007
Pours very hazy, pale gold with with a light ugly green tint, light a dim light cast from afar. The resulting head is thin, straw/gold colored and sparkling. What an ugly beer. The aroma is predominantly artificial apple, certainly no real fruit was used. Also noted are bubblegum, hay, wheat malt, stale grains, candy sugar and acids(lactic and otherwise). The flavor is lightly tart apple, more overly sweet malts, sugars. Light to moderate acidity, high cloying sweetness and pitifully high astringency lead to a drainpour. It’s not awful but I’d rather not drink it. The finish is lightly tart, cloying, candied and of moderate duration. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with separate pockets of wateriness and sticky syrup.
