Poured from a large bottle into a pint glass to sample. The beer had a great sour apple aroma with light citrus notes and a blend of candy and sugar too. It had a clear, light gold color with an average-sized foamy white head that had good retention and lacing, and great cling. It had a very sweet apple flavor with a gummy effect, and light touches of sour grain too. The palate had high carbonation with a thick mouthfeel, and was a bit dry and chewy.

250ml Bottle from Systembolaget. Hazy golden, medium/large white head. Aroma of apple and apple juice. Sticky sweet mouthfeel. The taste is sleazy and sweet, rough apple jucie concentrate, mild sourness at the end.

Ulysse (297) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 1, 2015
No head. Apple candy aroma. Good blend of sour apple and lambic. Lambic comes second but is still strong enough unlike its framboise sister. Unfortunately it feels a bit unnatural like some chemical soda.

37,5 cl bottle @ home. Very hazy, yellow orange look, minimal white head. Sweet smell of appels and sugar. Tastes like apple cider, almost no alcohol. Good as refreshment in summer, but it’s apple cider, not beer.

Oj så nice - en riktigt törstsläckare. Den faller dock helt bortom alla normal normer för hur en öl bör smaka.

Bottle. Golden clear, white head Lovely aroma of apple cider, summer and touch old cellar Taste sweet, apple, slight lambic feel. More cider feel than lambic, no sourness or deep genuine feel.

Bottle at CBA Hungary. Pours clear yellow golden with a thin white head. Aroma of apple, sweetish finish with a hint of sourness. Not bad.

JefVerstraete (2040) - Ghent, BELGIUM - JUN 15, 2015
Bottle. Hazy golden colour, white foam. Very sweet nose of candy, apple juice, ’zure matten’. Tastes very sweet and sugary with some tart notes. Is this beer?

obguthr (4538) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUN 10, 2015
Apple nose with distinct strawberry highlights. Fairly clear amber, medium head. Tart and sweet with good intensity. It’s literally like drinking apple sweettart candies. I’d find it cloying if there wasn’t the equal measure of tartness to balance it out. Granny smith is dominant. Medium body, fizzy. Easily drinkable whether you like "beer" or not. I’d drink this all the time if it was a bit cheaper. Delicious.

holdleder (231) - Kongerslev, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2015
37,5 Cl. flaske med både kapsel og "vin-prop". 3,5 %. Nærmere en cider end en øl. Masser af frisk æblesmag. Super frisk i solen, på en sommerdag.
