2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy golden lambic with a creamy thick white head. Chemical apple aroma, like those candy caps we ate as kids. In mouth, sweet sour apple juice, thin, yet refreshing. Powdery mouthfeel. Bottle at BCTC 2006.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy coppery gold, with a big fluffy white head. Big aroma of green apple, with a fair amount of musty horseblanket. The big sweet and sour apple candy flavor dominates upfront, with a mild following of tart funky barnyard. The weird thing, and biggest fault here, is that I felt I could almost taste hops in the finish. That aspect really clashed with the sweet and tart apple front. Overall, I was surprised to find that I actually enjoyed this, and it went down very smooth with a nice creamy palate. Refreshing. Note that I was pretty thirst when I got into this, and its been a long July Saturday, busting 100 deg F. Poured at approx 45 deg into fluted pilsner.

Draught at Uusi apteekki, Turku. Hazy yellow-brown color. Sweet parfumy aroma with distinct apple character. Very sweet taste with strong and good apple flavor. Very mild lambic flavors. Too sugary, good apple flavor.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very intense sour apple nose. Highly effervesent pour. Flavor was also essentially one note: tart apple cider. Not very interesting, but certainly drinkable in small quantities.

Cloudy orange. Vanilla, apple must and sweetish in aroma. Flavour is sweet appley (just like cheap apple cider), and there are hints of glue. Big on Co2. Naaa.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I served this is my smaller weizen glass and my NB flute: Clean straw hue topped by a small fading fizzy Head. The aroma is pure Jolly Rancher Sour Apple Candy (methink a lot of ratebeerians have said this already) with just a note of horsey blankety yeasty estery.
The taste follows suit, sour candy apple and just a nudge of some Belgium funk. Almost cider like and when comparing this to a cider, my overview increases substantially. IF YOU LIKE SOUR APPLE, THEN YOU WILL LIKE THIS...OTHERWISE AVOID
Oh, I happen to like sour apple so I like the flavor profile of this "beer" enough .What it is however is NOT A LAMBIC.

Rtaher sour with clear apple-aroma and flavour.
A bit too sweet but rather fresh anyway. Cider-ish.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
375mL bottle. Transparent yellow-orange with a small fizzy white head. Cloying melted green apple Jolly Rancher candy aroma. Sparkling cider flavors up front, complemented by soda-like carbonation. Mild acidity follows though into the finish, with residual candy apple sweetness and stickiness. Mouthfeel is medium, rather sticky.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a hazy pale yellow with a small white head. Big candy apple aroma. Very sweet. Smelled just like a Jolly Rancher candy. The flavor was very sweet with strong green apple flavor. Liquid candy. It wasn’t offensive but too sweet to drink more than a few sips of. I don’t know when I would really ever drink it.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. Hazy and yellow appearance with firm white head. Aroma of sweet apple cider with hints of vanilla. Rather sweet flavour of home made apple juice and maruenge, only a tiny whiff of sourish yeast. Sweet finish of applejuice with small a sourness in the background. Not terribly excited over this "lambic"
