Aroma of green jolly-rancher candies, so sweet and full of artificial candied apple aroma. Cloudy yellow with a thin, white head and good lacing. Sweet flavor, like the jolly rancher green apple candy. Wow...a touch of natural malt is in there I think? Taste is just terrible. I canít even get past the first quarter of my glass. Lighter body, slightly blah..yuck. This was a $10 drain pour. Bought it to share with my wife because she likes apple beers and overly sweet things and she didnít like it either.

The aroma has lots of apples and is sweet but not overly so.The appearance is pale gold. The flavor is like the aroma except that it is tart. The palate is good. This is like cider beer.

I really enjoyed this, event though its not an apple cider, its got the perfect flavor between cider and beer. the apple flavor is abundant and very rich in flavor. An exceptional Lambic

The aroma is sweet and of apples with a pour that is a light golden with a decent frothy white head. A sweet cidery flavor greets the palate and dominates throughout finishing with a nice fruitiness on the palate.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2006 750 ml bottle into a Snifter glass. Pours a murky and pale golden yellow color. The aroma is an candy apple perfume mainly smelling of green apples and Belgian sweetness. The flavor is very light on the lambic style flavor while bursting in taste with the green apples you smelled on the nose. Very sweet and sugary. Low carbonation. Has a tiny bit of a sour note towards the finish that reminds of true lambic. Definitely not the best lambic as per say being true to style, but actually a really good and refreshing drink.

Hazy straw color with a small white head. Aroma is sugar and apples,very sweet. Flavor is consistant with aroma, apples and sugar. Very one dimensional.

Pours orange with a white head. The smell of apple dominates the aroma. The flavor also is very strong with apple. The standard lambic flavors (malty, sour, grassy) show up a little. This one is like most fruit lambics Iíve had - tasty but too fruity. I rate the beer highly because I happen to like apples. Lindemanís Gueze and Peche are better.

I was surprised that this beer is on the dry side, fortunately its not a Jolly Rancher brew. The apple lends a nice cider quality to the lambics own cidery funk, which made for a rather good combination of flavors. I did enjoy this beer on a hot night which was nice.

A good flavor to this one, but abit on the light side, still more flavorful than most ciders though. Very easy drinking, wish it was fuller bodied. ok

Much better then hard cider this has the thick but light taste of Lindmans with a real apple flavor. I like this one very much it is crisp and sweet without being sickly Lindmans makes the best beers this is rated half of what it should be.
