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 I’ve had - tasty but too fruity. I rate the beer highly because I happen to like apples. Lindeman’s 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.

Clear light amber color with a thin white head. Sweet sugary apple aroma. Sweet apple flavor, but all too incredibly sweet.

Ernest (6485) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 17, 2006
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy dark yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with a strong note of apple candy. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation. Very artificial tasting.

12 oz. Beer is a hazy, medium yellow-gold with a small, white, frothy, mostly diminishing head. The aroma is thick, sweet, green apple Jolly Rancher. The flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic with a short, moderately acidic, moderately sugary-sweet finish. The body is watery, the texture is velvety and the carbonation is fizzy. Soda pop through and through. Not a speck of beer to be found anywhere in this confection.

Lubiere (10624) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 16, 2006
Hazy golden lambic with a creamy thick white head. Chemical apple aroma, like those candy caps we ate as kids. In mouth, sweet sour apple juice, thin, yet refreshing. Powdery mouthfeel. Bottle at BCTC 2006.

Pours a hazy coppery gold, with a big fluffy white head. Big aroma of green apple, with a fair amount of musty horseblanket. The big sweet and sour apple candy flavor dominates upfront, with a mild following of tart funky barnyard. The weird thing, and biggest fault here, is that I felt I could almost taste hops in the finish. That aspect really clashed with the sweet and tart apple front. Overall, I was surprised to find that I actually enjoyed this, and it went down very smooth with a nice creamy palate. Refreshing. Note that I was pretty thirst when I got into this, and its been a long July Saturday, busting 100 deg F. Poured at approx 45 deg into fluted pilsner.

Draught at Uusi apteekki, Turku. Hazy yellow-brown color. Sweet parfumy aroma with distinct apple character. Very sweet taste with strong and good apple flavor. Very mild lambic flavors. Too sugary, good apple flavor.
