Bottle. Pours with a golden color. Aroams are not surprisngly of tart apples, flavors are also mainly that of Granny Smith apples. It has a champgane like effervescence, but the apple is abit too overpowering. This is more like an apple cider, not like beer it lacks any malt component.

Ungstrup (33805) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2007
Bottled. A dark golden beer with a medium sized bubbly beige head. The aroma is sweet with very strong notes of apples and hints of brettanomyces. The flavor is a combination of sweet and acidic, the acidity draws some mouthwater after the sweetnes resides, combined with a fresh apple note - somewhat like chewing on an unripe apple - a slight sweetness soon overcome by acidity. The finish is slightly acidic with hints of brettanomyces.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - NOV 10, 2007
Pours a hazy golden brown with a thin, bubbly white head. Nice cidery green apple aroma with a dash of musty yeast. Flavor is sweet yet tart, green apples and wild yeast. Flavorful. Refreshing, but I woudn’t want to drink it often.

riversideAK (6057) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - NOV 7, 2007
On tap. Hazy orange gold color with a thin white head. Aroma of apple pie, sour apples, etc. Flavor is sweet apple followed by some sour apple in the finish. A little musty sweetness. Had this for desert and it really was enjoyable.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 1, 2007
The beer from the 350ml caged and corked bottle pours a hazy deep gold color with a modest creamy white head, that fades away leaving the lace to seal the glass with a fine sheet. Nose has a terrific “Granny Smith Apple” sweet and sour aroma with a wet “gunny sack” musty tone, astringent, but likeable nonetheless. Start continues the sweet and sour astringency with the top light in its feel. Finish has a barbarous acidity, followed by the “green apple” sweet and sourness, face-puckering dryness, but it has everything I look for in a good Lambic.

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2007 Draft at Beneluxx in Philadelphia. First off, I am not going to analyze this as a "beer" or whether it’s 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 i’ve 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

Aggie80 (804) - Michigan, USA - OCT 27, 2007
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.

Bottle. Medium head with medium duration. Color is light amber. Aroma and taste are fresh apple with some citrus freshness. Nice and sweet.

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