3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2007 Draft at Beneluxx in Philadelphia. First off, I am not going to analyze this as a "beer" or whether itís a true lambic. I am going to rate this on how I enjoyed it as an adult beverage. Pours a hazy golden with a dissipating white head. The aroma smells like liquid apple jolly ranger candy. The flavor is pretty much the same, sweet apple hard candy with a touch of sourness. Texture is a tad syrupy, but not offensive. This is truly a dessert drink, and a better alternative to the Smirnoff Ice, Zima, and other shit that wussies like to drink. Heck, my four year old daughter could drink this. If you have a sweet tooth, give it a try. If you want a beer, this hardly qualifies. However, Cheapdark would gladly share one with you

your traditional lindemans fruit lambic overly sweet and fruity. this is a little better than the others iíve tried because you can at least taste hints of lambic mustiness far and faint in their background. i still would never recommend this as anything but an alternative to cider

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy pour with nice head and a lemonade type color. Apple aroma is strong and the green sour apple flavor predominates. Little or no malt flavors in there. Nice accent with a dessert, but not a main course beverage.

Fruit juicy. Apple and tartness throughout. Granny smith apples is all I can taste.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Single bottle from the local grocery store marked down to $2.99, I like it already. Bountiful aroma of tart apple and sour malt, crisp and snappy. An earthy yeastiness showed up near the end. Cloudy, deep, golden yellow with a thin bubbly white head and medium lacing. Smooth tartness with a sweet kick. Medium bodied with a long pleasant finish. Flavor is primarily green sour apple and musty malt. Itís dry, sweet, and tart altogether in a mellow blending of taste. Reminds me of a fermented version of the Apple Jolly Rancher candies. A nice refreshing Lambic, this is much, much better than their Kriek. If the cost were a little less, I would keep more of this around.

Nose of, well, apples, granny smith; flavor like a jolly rancher apple candy. Finishes with mild malts and woody yeast. Rather thin, but interesting i guess.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
[Odense-tasting at Scheffel. Bottle bought in La Roche-en-Ardenne.] This is heavy sweet and almost too much. Funny to see that it also has got some very high notes. It must have been sampled on a hot summerday. Anyway, notes of green perfumed apples, candy apple, hardly swallowed and flavor is like a cider. Good for my rabbit!

The bottle looks like a champagne and there is realy a cork in it. Tasty fruit beer, like a fizzy apple juice.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2008 Bottle from Trader Joe’s. Light orange in color upon pouring. Sweet apple aroma. Like a green Jolly Rancher. Very sweet candy apple flavors. Like liquid apple sugar. Nice a refreshing. I do like a good cider and this is kind of like a lot of US American ciders Iíve tried.
