hayduke (4462) - Eureka, California, USA - JAN 31, 2007
This 750 ml; bottle set me back $9.45 at my local North Coast Coop in Eureka, CA. It poured a peach color with a large and white foamy head. Lots of lacing made you realize this was not just applc cider. Nose is apple however, and not much else. Very sweet with moderate carbonation and a light mouthfeel. Drinkable but way overpriced for what you get.

LyndaNova (532) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 27, 2007
Cold 12oz corked bottle: Pours a clear straw color with a thin layer of alabaster bubbles, mostly around the edges. Distinct green apple with light grains and hints of citrus. Crisp and well carbonated. Ending is sweet and tart.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 27, 2007
Bottle: Pours a cloudy light orange with a thin white head, aroma is of apples and a bit of hay, starts and ends sweet and very cider-like. Strong fizzy carbonation and watery texture.

GarrettB (1375) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 23, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2007 This is, for all practical purposes, a highly sweetened apple juice with a green foil covered top. For anybody who’s spent some time in Japan, this has an uncanny resemblance to Qoo Apple Juice. And by uncanny, I mean identical, except Qoo juice was about $1.45 per bottle and came with an adorable blue character to point and giggle at while the sugar hijacked your senses. Definitely the simplest and least satisfying lambic from Lindeman’s. Though I really miss Qoo juice. Qooooooooo!

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JAN 23, 2007
Bottle. Pours a cloudy, lush gold with lively carbonation. Aroma is a nice apple fragrance with just a hint of pear. Flavors are apple and pineapple, with banana in the finish. Tingly on the tongue; the flavors spread along the palate in waves. Light and refreshing. Great lambic.

Haslinger (902) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - JAN 22, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2008 Tasty. Tastes a lot like a typical "bitch drink" such as Smirnoff ice or Skyy blue but very enjoyable to drink. Very smooth to drink, fairly sweet would not want to drink more than 3-4 of these in a row.

Optigon (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - JAN 19, 2007
Pours a light yellow with a strong corky quality. Granny Smith Apples may as well fly out the bottle. Strong sweet-sour apple taste. Not overly sweet. Very enjoyable.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 18, 2007
Gold yellow coloured, small white head. Clear, distinctive aroma of green appels. Full fruity palate. Finish is light sour, fruity. Not bad.

tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Bright straw color - clear and bubbly. Aroma of hard apple cider. Flavor is lively and sweet too, strong on the apples. Goes down suprisiningly smooth.

beerbill (3599) - Laurel, New York, USA - JAN 15, 2007
12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy dirty yellow with a very thin head that was gone in seconds. Very lively carbonation immediately after the pour which settled down after several minutes. The aroma was the strong point of this brew: tons of apple. Apple is also the dominant flavor characteristic. There is a sweetness to this beer for sure, but there is also a sour element as well as some tartness. One minute I am liking this stuff, and the next I am not so sure. This has been one of the more difficult beers I have rated.
