Heavy apple aroma and flavor. Quite a bit like a cider but actually a lot better. Not as good as the Framboise or the Kriek but enjoyable nonetheless.

I noticed apple aromas immediately. Smells just like a green apple. It looks just like apple juice. Good head that dissipates quickly. Slightly carbonated, sweet and similar to apple cider. Green apple bitterness. I am not a big green apple fan, but this green apple flavor is pleasant. Very smooth mouth. Nice and lasting apple aftertaste. Not quite as good as the Framboise but very enjoyable.

Sampled with Kristen, Maggie, Jen, and Adam at our Pumpkin carving party. Nice touch for fall. Tastes like a sparkling apple cider. My least favorite of the Lindeman family so far but tasty none the less.

Sampled this at the Great Decatur Beer Tasting Festival. Gold color. very tart. Sour Apple Jolly Ranchers candy aroma. Same flavor. Very sweet, very tart. All the plump sorority girls were going back to this one. Must be a PDer.

Pours bright gold into a tumbler. Tight, bright white micro head with excellent retention. Sour apple candy aromas. Sour (not good sour) up front with overwhelming apple juice flavors. Should come in a sippy cup.

750 ml bottle. If you love apple, you will love this beer. Green apple aromas and flavor dominates this one. It makes it a bit one dimensional, and tastes more like a hard cider, than a beer. That being said, I’m a big fan of hard cider, and lambic, so I found Pomme to be a very enjoyable beer drinking experience. This beer pours to a slightly hazy, pale golden color, with a thick, white head, and a vibrant carbonation. The nose on this beer is very fragrant with aroma of fresh picked apples. The palate is firm, and delivers more of the same. Lots of crisp sweet/sour/tangy Granny Smith apple flavor dances on the tongue with a good bit of carbonation. Pomme finishes with more great apple flavor up front, then ends with a crisp, sweet/sour apple flavor that lingers. Like taking a big bite of a crisp, and juicy Granny Smith apple. Delicious beer, that would work well as an aperitif, with a cheese course, or with a big slab of hot apple pie ala mode with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.

From bottle. Had to try this since I’ve tried the others. Poured golden. Big white, long lasting head. Apple aroma is very stong, lke walking in an apple orchard. Flavor like apple juice with a ever so slight sourness in the end. Carbonation was good and plenty, very lively on my tounge. As with all the lindemans it is easy to drink. I would say that this isn’t my favorite or Lindemans best effort. It was bland after it warmed up. Not one of my favorites, but I am glad I tried it.

marchcow (664) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - OCT 9, 2006
Very strong apple flavor and aroma. Overpowers the beer side too much. Good as a hard cider but not as a beer. That being said it is very drinkable. Plenty of carbonation. Thick cloudy consistency. Not bad.
