2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Hazy pale yellow. Thin head. Clear apple aroma with small notes of citrus. Flavour apple and not much else. Uninteresting and really boring. More of applejuice than beer!!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
From a 355 mL bottle. The body was bright and slightly cloudy gold with a bright white head. The aroma has some disgustingly sweet hard apple candy aroma. There is also a little bit of hay. The taste has some sweet Granny Smith apples with some notes of hay and a little bit of leather. This is fairly refreshing and candy tasting, but a little too much, even for Lindeman’s.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Interesting cork top. Light amber color, thin head that cleared away quickly. Not too bubbly. Strong sweet apple aroma and flavor; I felt I was drinking a cider rather than a beer.

On tap at The Bier Garden, Portsmouth, VA. Hazy bright yellow, small thin white head. Nose is all apple Jolly Rancher - sweet, tart apple. Flavor is similar, candylike, very sweet. Judged as a lambic, pretty poor. Judged overall, pretty good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nose is like a tart cinnamon apple pie without the crust; sllightly hazy gold with a ring of white bubbles around the edge; taste is only semi tart; a lot of sweet apple flavor with cinnamon in the background;Kiapepito would like this, and so do I. but it’s not an Imperial Stout!

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma is like sparkling cider, with some white wine, and cinnamon. Body is a slightly foggy gold with no head forming. Taste is much like sparkling cider, with alcohol, you can taste a bit of the green apple in the background, but it’s just to ’unbeerlike’ for my taste. Seems more like juice.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Musty basement and apple aroma. Light tan color with little head. Sweet-tart apple juice flavor with only the slightly hint of typical lambic mustiness. Basically like all their other fruit lambics - very sweet (i.e. nontraditional).

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
21.05.06 Jimmack Invitational ’06 I walk in the the place a short bit late and this monstrosity is what I’m faced with right away, Lindemans Pomme. Tart and outrageously sour apple candy in a glass. Faint hint of distant farmhouse, maybe moreso that the other Lindemans beers. Unbearably artificial and fizzy.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2006 Whelming. That’s how I’d describe this. Not over whelming, not under whelming. Just whelming. Actually, its almost exactly like an average supemarket cider, like Woodchucks or something. Why bother? Anyway, here’s the specifics.: Murky gold, foamy white head. Slightly candyish apple aroma, with some lemony, tart notes. Some fresh apple notes mix with some artificial, "Jolly Rancher" type flavors. Just a touch of acidity at the end, but not enough to make it interesting.
