Jerre (3014) - Waregem, BELGIUM - JUN 26, 2007
Bottle 37,5 cl. Golden color, with white head. Aroma = strong apple, sweet. Medium body. Taste too sweet, this is more a fruit juice tna a beer.

Tasted at bevmo. Itís a bit like a beer version of a jolly rancher, not quite my thing

FatPhil (10992) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 10, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2013 250ml bottle (as "Lindemans Apple") Looks like a good scrumpy. Alas smells of chemicals, almond and cherry being the strongest spikes. Quite refreshing on a summer day, but nothing exceptional.

on draft at yia yias, lincoln. smells great, tastes super - good palate. this would be a good beginning lambic for people to try, as the yeast flavor is minimized by the apple flavor. Cider lovers will appreciate the balance of sweet, tart, mellow, and rich.

Stew41 (1808) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - JUN 9, 2007
Lager-like in appearance. Big fluffy head early but it breaks up quickly. Nose is much better than expected, I was of course anticipating masses of sweet confectionary apple juice however whilst the obvious juicy apple note is apparent thereís an underlying sour / lambic tone....gives me hope. Palate is similar is that flavours are all about sweet concentrated juice early but these fade in favour of a mild stinky and sour lambic note. Donít get me wrong, this is no hardcore Cantillon lookalike but it gives the beer a note of credibility.

Maria (10191) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2007
Golden with a nice head. The aroma is crisp and has notes of apple, apple-peel and a light sweetness. The flavour has the same bitterness, that you get when you bite in the apple kernel/seed, but above all, itís sweet. It has notes of a lot of apples, fruity acidity and notes of marzipan. Itís quite charming. 2257

Rastacouere (6161) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 30, 2007
On Tap, Monks Cafť Stockholm Cloudy pale golden pour, applesauce coloured in fact and applesauce smelling. The lasting and lacing white head is tops. Sugary, candied beery nose bearing a strong soda pop side. it differs from crappy ciders through its obvious grainy malt character, but the wheat remains mostly subtle. Sticky full body, minimal lambic character, typical lindemans, but at least the fruit is different.. Just dull and not calling for any thoughts from its disgruntled drinker.

Bottle. Light yellow-gold body with a white soapy hea.d Smells like jolly rancher apples and that’s about it, really. Very sweet, sugary artificial flavouring and not lambic-like at all. Candyish and unappealing.

HogTownHarry (6293) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 25, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2007 Bottle. At Siebel Brewerís Academy (Goose Island Brewpub, Chicago - Clybourn) Belgian tasting May 24 2007. Slightly cloudy pale yellow with a small white head. The aroma was green - I know thatís a colour, but thatís what I wrote and I still remember it - unripe granny smith apples and green rhubard, grassy hops - tart! The taste was a little more straightforward, apple, honey, fresh grassy hops, yeast - mildly funky, mostly sweet. Think and syrupy body, only moderately lively mouthfeel, lightning-quick sweet finish. Very sweet, but decent - if not so thick, would say "quenching"
