Bottle 0.25 l, Carrefour, Wrocław, Poland.
Jasnozłote, mętnawe piwo o puszystej, niezbyt obfitej pianie i przyjemnym, świeżym aromacie kwaśnych jabłek. W smaku orzeźwiające, początkowo słodkawe, jabłkowe z kwaskowym finiszem.

Hallstein (200) - Skogn, NORWAY - MAR 2, 2015
Pours a light, hazy orange color. Aroma has sour apple candies. Not much else. Flavor also has loads of sour apple candy. It’s good! Not in any way complex, but thats to be expected.

Hoppy_Luke (469) - Poznań, POLAND - FEB 28, 2015
Trochę sceptycznie podszedłem do owocowego lambica o smaku jabłka. Zielonego jabłka, jak można wywnioskować z etykiety. Piwo nieklarowne, złociste, z niewielką pianą. W aromacie spod jabłka niewiele się przebija. Dzikość bardzo ukryta. W smaku dzikie drożdże są wyczuwalne. Mamy kwaskowość, ale słodkie, mdłe, powiedziałbym sztuczne, nuty jabłkowe bardzo psują odbiór. Piwo zdatne do wypicia, ale jako lambic wypada zdecydowanie słabo.

Fluxing (455) - POLAND - FEB 24, 2015
Kolor ciemnozloty, brzydkie zmetnienie w postaci plywajacych granulek. Piana za to bardzo obfita, dlugo sie utrzymuje i pozostawie wielkie firany, jak na lambica to wow. W aromacie polaczenie nut dzikich i jablkowych ze sztuczna slodkoscia i wymiotami, coz, stary chmiel robi swoje. W smaku dzikosc jest, natomiast nie ma za bardzo kwasnosci, ledwie co sie ona przebija spod jablkowej slodkosci, sa tez te nieszczesne wymioty, ogolnie nie jest zle, jest slodkie, ale nie mdle. Wysycenie wysokie, drobne, stanowi jakas kontre dla slodkiego smaku. Goryczki brak. Pijalne, ale tylko tyle, do odhaczenia i zapomnienia.

superspak (3067) - Michigan, USA - FEB 21, 2015
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 9/9/2013. Pours slightly hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lightly tart green apple, pear, white grape, hay, grass, candi sugar, light honey, slight funk, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of apples, pale malt, and fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of tart green apple, pear, white grape, hay, grass, candi sugar, light honey, slight funk, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of fruity tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of green apple, pear, white grape, hay, straw, grass, candi sugar, light honey, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of apples, pale malt, and fruit yeast flavors; with a good sweetness/tartness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 3.5%. Overall this is a very good sweetened fruit lambic style. All around good robustness and balance of apples, pale malt, and fruity yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. This is more pleasantly flavored than the other variants, but still a nicely enjoyable offering.

Beerheart65 (1084) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 20, 2015
Bit cloudy golden ochre with thin white head that persists ok. Natural aroma of green apples. Light and fizzy, sweet, just tiny bit sourness, light body. I enjoyed, pure and natural and very easy to drink. More nuances maybe but this is supposed to be apple beer..so..maybe not more needed, works nicely at least for me.
