(Bottle. 03/2006). Aroma: apples. Appearance: hazy, straw -- or clear, straw -- depending on how aggressively you pour it. Fast dissipating white, head. Flavor: SWEET, appley. Palate: Medium-light. Overall: not bad, just so, so, so, so sweet ... a lambic with training-wheels, definitely (lacks any of the more funky lambic aspects ... they’re probably there but just so muted by the syrupy apple aromas and tastes you’d never know).

På flaska från bolaget. Mörk gul något grumlig med mycket kolsyra. Sött, syrligt och sliskigt med äppelsmak som lika gärna kunde vara överjäst saft.

SamTheBarrel (418) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2014
330ml green bottle with a foil sealed top, label depicting apples, poured into a Tulip glass. Appearance is cloudy straw colored with a small beige head that reduced quickly, leaving no lacing. Aroma of apples and barnyard funk. Flavours of ripe sweet apples. Taste is medium sweet, light bitter and light sour. Palate is medium-light bodied, slightly sticky texture and soft carbonation. Overall a decent lambic fruit beer, and a pleasant surprise considering I disliked Lindemans Kriek. Lindemans Apple tastes of natural sweet ripe apples, but it’s too sweet, low ABV, not tart enough and lacks maltiness for me to identify it as a beer. With that said it’s drinkable, and a suitable gateway beer to cider drinkers.

Een goed appelbier, er zijn er betere op de markt, maar dit is zeker niet slecht.

Sweet but not overwhelming. Beautiful color when poured with a small frothy head. Nice fruity aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JulienHuxley (3020) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle 375 ml. Hazy gold pour with white head. Aroma is cidery but not as much as I was expecting, light grainy beery notes come through, very mild lambic notes, maybe some light funk and a few mineral notes but mostly a lots of green apple. Taste is sweet, apple pie, light spice, light mineral notes, no acidity whatsoever (beyond the natural acidity of, an apple for example). Palate is medium bodied, with light carbonation. Drinkable.

Bottle, pours gold with a white head, ripe apple aroma, taste starts sweet green apple then a hint of sourness before a dry apple finish, not bad
