(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).

25cl bottle in Luçon, France. Pours cloudy orange with a small, but long-lasting head. Aroma is all apple, as is the taste, albeit slightly artificial apple. Sour, very much reminding me of apple sweets. Pleasant, but wouldn’t want more than a couple at a time.

Antrunk und Abgang sind etwas sauer, das gefällt mir gut, man schmeckt schön den Apfel aber auch das Bieraroma kommt nicht zukurz! Wirklich schönes Bier, schmeckt super!

750 ml bottle from old backlog notes 07. Pours a hazy orange golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have tart green apples, caramel, mild acidity, very similar to a cider with a bit less sweetness, the aroma is weaker, still not my favorite from them.

Piwo butelkowe. Kolor złoty, klarowny. W zapachu jabłka i kwasek cytrynowy. Piana z dużymi pęcherzami, musujące. W smaku mocno kwaśne, zielone jabłka, cytryna. Całkiem niezły lambik ale jednak do krieka nie można porównywać.

This was poured into a stange. Here goes. There was a nice light somewhat hazy pale orange to yellow glazed over sort of color with a fairly decent one finger white foamy head that left a decent amount of foamy light lacing. The smell had a super nice conglomeration of apples to spice to light/bitter hoppiness trying to invade my nose. The taste took those flavors and combined to flavor to assist in combining a nice real take that was quite flavorful into the beer itself. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in body and had a fairly sessionable quality running about it. Overall, in my opinion, not a bad beer to have,, I’m unsure if I would seek this out again, but hey, try it if you see it..

Hazy gold beer, small white head. Palate is light and a little crisp. Sweet and sour fresh pressed Cox apple juice! Touch of lemon sherbet gives it real zip. Light dry finish. Delicious fun beer!

Smak och doft av äppelmust, jäst, sötningsmedel med toner av ekträ och socker. Must och ciderkaraktär. Smakar mest äppeljuice med sötningsmedel. Dricks den kall är den ok.

Pours a clear golden color, some residue floating around. Topped with a small white head, soon only a small cover is left. Pleasant fruity aroma, apple with a bit of that cidery quality. Tastes sweet and fruity, can actually feel the apples. Also slighty soury in the end. Very nice and enjoyable.

So I’ve been looking for a fruit beer that could be appreciated by a lover of IPAs. A friend suggested this one, so off I go... Poured into the glass a light gold, full of sediment and sporting a pure white head that lingers, softly lacing the sides of the glass. The aroma is soft as well, tickling the olfactory senses with tart / sweet apple layered over the top of a sweetbread foundation. As I drink, the aromas that I’ve just experienced come into my mouth full throttle, thrusting my taste buds onto a roller-coaster of sweet to tart and then back again.The tastes grow heavier as the beer warms, and the liquid goes from a light fizzy experience to one that is sticky and softer. The finish here is long and tart, a pleasant aftertaste and a mild afterward. I must say that for a fruit beer, this one was quite nice. If I were to look for a light, summery experience, this may be something I would consider, although it does seem more of a Sunday brunch offering than anything else.

przyjemny (choć niezbyt intensywny) zapach dojrzałych jabłek z wyczuwalnymi dzikimi nutami i bardzo lekką śmietanką. kolor niefiltrowanego soku z papierówki, mocno mętne, ale przepuszcza trochę światła. piana skąpa, ale dość trwała. w smaku dojrzałe jabłka z lekką goryczką (trochę jakby przegryzło się pestkę) i dość sporą kwaśnością. smakuje jak pomieszanie dojrzałych czerwonych jabłek z kwaśnymi zielonymi. da się wyczuć również lekkie nuty słodowe. najmniej kwaśne z tej serii od lindemansa jakie do tej pory piłem.
