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

Aggie80 (802) - 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.

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.

BeerBiker (1413) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2007
[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!

vtisza (8) - BELGIUM - OCT 19, 2007 does not count
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.
