3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2007 Bottle. At Siebel Brewer’s Academy (Goose Island Brewpub, Chicago - Clybourn) Belgian tasting May 24 2007. Slightly cloudy pale yellow with a small white head. The aroma was green - I know that’s a colour, but that’s what I wrote and I still remember it - unripe granny smith apples and green rhubard, grassy hops - tart! The taste was a little more straightforward, apple, honey, fresh grassy hops, yeast - mildly funky, mostly sweet. Think and syrupy body, only moderately lively mouthfeel, lightning-quick sweet finish. Very sweet, but decent - if not so thick, would say "quenching"

Like the Peche, the Pomme is very sweet and highly carbonated. The aroma and taste are excellent, but again I ask if this sweet concoction is really what you are looking for in a beer? I like the flavor a bit more than the Peche, but that is just my preference for apples over peaches. Not what I am looking for in a beer, but again, my wife loves this stuff. To each his (or her) own.

Bottle 355 ml
Strong green apple aroma that is noticeable from far away. Candy like in coating. Truest to real fruit up close.
Golden lambic with some haze and fizzy top.
Sweet and sour. From start you might notice shallow complexity. Some tartness from green apples would be welcome . To much white sugar spoils this set up. Fair finish but beer it self with major flaws.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Another nice job from Lindemans. I used to be a big fan of woodchuck hard cider in college, and now I’ve found something similar, but with some substance to it that I can enjoy (in small doses). Sure, it’s low in abv and high in sugary sweetness, but it is much more beerlike than other carbonated apple drinks. Definitely could be a gateway to real beer for some people. My fiance’s mother’s first beer that she has liked enough to buy on her own.

Bottle. I’ve never really like lambics too much. Not really my thing. Too tart, too weak, etc.
