I really don’t know what makes a great lambic, because this one is poorly rated and yet I find it fruity and delicious. Guess I have a sweet tooth. Recommended.

pet3rman (375) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2007
Pours yellow with small fizzy white head. Strong aroma of sour apples. Has the makings of a decent lambic despite its artificial flavor. (I like sour apple a lot, however, so I may have overrated).

yngwie (16503) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 19, 2007
Bottle, 25cl. Almost clear body, golden-yellow color, under a minimal, white head. The aroma has green apples, quite ripe ones, some sourness and yeast, and I don’t find it too interesting or good. Sour, artificial-fruity flavor, but not as apple-ish as the aroma. It has a medium full, astringent mouthfeel, quite teeth-cleansing, and a sour-fruity finish with some green apples. Strange and refreshing, still not my cup of tea. I like real lambics very much, this one I have no problems staying away from. (071027)

aracauna (3501) - Georgia, USA - DEC 16, 2007
Pours a hazy dark gold almost tan. The apple comes through with a slightly juicy, slightly cidery fruitiness. It’s a little too sweet and the fruit in this one covers up the lambic funkiness more than some of the other Lindemans lambics.

lumberjack (178) - Michigan, USA - DEC 16, 2007
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.

flemdawg (559) - Rowlett, Texas, USA - DEC 16, 2007
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.

   AROMA 3/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 9/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 13/20
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.

EKGoldings (634) - Radford, Virginia, USA - DEC 12, 2007
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.

jalichio999 (502) - BRAZIL - DEC 5, 2007
Garrafa. Colocação âmbar clara e turva. Creme branco que logo se dissipou. Há um amargor... Há características de cerveja. Carbonatação média. Doce discreto.

bierkoning (12359) - 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.
