3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. As said before, this is pretty much a green apple jolly rancher in liquid form...with a splash of sweet-tarts. Overwhelming in both aroma and taste. Very sweet, with some balancing sourness. Not unpleasant, but not something you would be able to drink much of. Interesting.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours a clear giolden colour with an inviting bubbily head. The nose is totally Jolly Rancher apple candy. The taste is overly sweetened apple candy that does not offer anything else to balance the candy apples. I was looking forward to this one, however, it was very disappointing in its overwhelming sweetness which makes the apple flavors seem artificial.

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Yuck. Aroma of apple jolly ranchers, looks like apple juice only with a head, tastes like green apple, very sticky with a little bit of spritz, sugar bomb. I like this about as much as those gross food colored "apple pucker" concoctions, which is to say not at all. Itís sad because Iím fond of apples. But if I wanted to drink this I could just dissolve handfuls of apple jolly ranchers into kool aid and add some light alcohol.

One whiff and you are in Jolly Rancher heaven. Full on granny smith candy sweetness is story of the aroma and flavor. Dry finish. The only knock I have it that it looks like cloudy urine. No head, and not very appealling. Overall this beer is closer to an apple cider. Good as a dessert brew.

Nose is apple jolly rancher/sour apple blow pop, strawberry, taffy. Sweet sweet sweet. Flavor is more of the jolly rancher, watermelon, berry, very little hint of anything lambic like here. Mayb e a bit of twang in the finish.

This was a very good lambic. Poured a cloudy yellow color with crisp apple aromas. This was definitely a refreshing beer in all aspects and one I would have again. Recommended.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy orange-tan body, frothy white head. Smells like a green apple Jolly Rancher. The flavor retains part of the JR but also brings in a hint of lemon rind acidity and pale wheat malt. Pretty much just lightly malted GAJR though. Bubbly mouthfeel witha nice viscous feeling.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a very clear, very light-colored near-clear yellow. Lots of big bubbles and carbonation leades me to suspect the natural carbonation process is artificially augmented. Aroma and flavor are one-dimensional and extremely artificial. This tasted exactly like a Jolly Rancher apple-flavored candy in liquid form. I donít necessarily expect authentic craftsmanship from Lindemans products but this stuff is such an obvious fake that it doesnít even have credible guilty-pleasure value. I rather enjoy the rest of Lindemans fruit-lambic products so this one was a tremendous letdown.

4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 335 ml. Green apple sent arises from the bottle after removing the cork with out puting your nose to it. Hazy gold body with white head and light lacing. Flavor was like biting into a granny smithís green apple. Had some jolly rancher candy tartness that could turn some off. No tart left on palate just a green apple aftertaste. I liked it.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle... Hazy, golden ale with a small, fizzy, white head. Tastes and smells like a green apple Jolly Rancher... only this brew isnít as tart as the candy. Thatís not good for a lambic, nor is it good for me. Not much about this beer really works for me. It does have a decent, medium body with lively carbonation. Unfortunately, I really donít like green apple gum, Jolly Ranchers or anything else. Too bad. If Iíd read othersí reviews, I wouldnít have bought the bottle. I was hoping to get an underripe Red Delicious type of flavor. Thatíll teach me to only look at othersí scores without checking out the verbiage. I wonít totally bash the brew... Iíll score it neutrally. People who enjoy green apple candy or gum should enjoy this ale.
