It should be noted this is the first Lambic I have tried. Everything about this is absolutely dominated by tart apple, to the point where I wouldn’t have even known this was beer at all if I didn’t see the bottle itself. Nothing else going on here to give any semblance of balance or complexity. Too much carbonation perhaps also. All in all, this was interesting and worth trying for sure, but not something I will go out of my way for.

Hazy orange body with a small white head. Green apple cider aroma with just a hint of sour. The taste was much like the aroma, green apple cider with little to no sourness. Pass.

DerBiermeister (586) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - DEC 13, 2007
First of all, let me just say that I’m not entirely sure I didn’t get a tainted sample somehow. The aroma is quite funky. The appearance is opaque, a tab lighter than normal apple juice. Neglects to yield much head - not a good sign. The flavour is tart like a jolly rancher - if you added caramel and heated it it would probably taste like something from Starbucks that costs $8. The flavour is the best thing about this beer. The palate is too simple, though it is crisp, and the ABV is too low to be a standard. Overall, substandard for Lindemans. The raspberry (Framboise) is clearly the best.

They add apple flavoring to this beer, a big disappointment even if the flavoring is "natural". The added flavoring is a bit too obvious. Applejuice with alcohol; if you’re into that you may love this stuff.

Garrafa. Colocação âmbar clara e turva. Creme branco que logo se dissipou. Há um amargor... Há características de cerveja. Carbonatação média. Doce discreto.

bierkoning (12280) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - DEC 3, 2007
Bottle. Greenish blonde color, hazy. Sweet apples in the aroma. Sweet and sour flavor with apples. Sugary and sticky, yet fairly fresh. Somewhat artificial, hint of aspartame. Drinkable, but too sweet and sticky for my taste.

lukeris (5) - USA - NOV 30, 2007 does not count
I tried this at a large beer tasting and I could smell it from about ten feet away from the table. The aroma made me remember summer camp... those apple jolly rancher sticks. Not as artificial, no, but certainly as intense. Not for the faint of fruity.

Sweet granny smith apple with some booze added, pleasing dessert for a sweet tooth.

pours a clear yellow, not much carbonation, medium size egg-shell head, good lacing. smell is of apples, malt, very sweet smell. taste is of green apples, hard cider, sweet yet tart, leaves the mouth dry and just a little bitter. overall this was rather enjoyable, maybe just a bit too sweet.

Nate (4171) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2007
Draught at Sharp Edge Creekhouse. Big sweet apple pie aroma. Ethyl acetate, apple, sugar. Like a Jolly Rancher. Hazy pale apple juice, pale gold. Thin lacing white head. Medium-light body, with medium carbonation. Really sweet, like apple juice or sweet cider. Big Jolly Rancher flavor, no bitterness. Mild caramel in there, too. Nice dessert beer, but not for much else.
