Alengrin (4604) - BELGIUM - SEP 9, 2014
The apple beer in this XTreme series, with no counterpart in the ’ordinary’ Mort Subite range. Thick, cream white, moussy, pretty stable head, yellowish golden blonde colour, cristal clear. Very strong artificial apple aroma, as in sweet industrial cider, heavily sweetened apple juice, some fusty graininess (probably corn) and a lot of lemonade-like ascorbic acidity. Very sweet taste, sugared water, very artificially apple, even a bit reminiscent of industrially produced apple pie, fading away into a thin, utterly neutral finish. This is even more awful than its kriek and framboise counterparts, it’s a good thing they decided to discontinue it.

Goldenes Getränk mit wenig Schaum. Geruch sehr stark nach künstlichen Äpfeln. Geschmack auch sehr künstlich süß, übertrieben fruchtig.

Botlled, 250ml. Pale straw with pinkish head (how did that happen?). Bored at home on an Easter Sunday evening, I decided to rob one Sandra’s fruit beers. How I wished I hadn’t, sweet, sticky saccharin apple fizz. Whew this is bad but serves me right, She will claim one of my dark beers now.

Bottle at Chris_o’s. Very sweet, artificial apple flavour, much like Rosie Apples but much less enjoyable. Awful excuse for a lambic.

SilkTork (5563) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2008
Bottle, at London Shindig, August 2007. Chemical cider aroma. Applejuice - fresh and green with a faint beer note. Quite drinkable, but chemical and artificial.

Jerre (3235) - Waregem, BELGIUM - DEC 28, 2007
Bottle, 25 cl. Almost clear blond color, with a whitish creamy head. Aroma green apples, sweet syrup.Thin to medium body. Taste bit malts, and same like the aroma dry, sticky finish. Where is the lambic in it ? Too sweet for me.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 3, 2007
Strong sweetener makes those apples feel extremely sweet, aggressive even and quite bland juicy profile. Dull and thin palate with little effervescence to cut through the syrupy feel. Disgusting.

Ungstrup (34666) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 24, 2007
Bottled. A golden beer with a collapsing beige head. The aroma is sweet with notes of green apples and candy drops. The flavor is artificially sweet with notes of apples - like a sodapop. Not my thing.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 29, 2007
Bottle. An easy one to rate, coz i didn’t have to change any of the numbers. This was pretty bad. Horribly articficial flavour. Like the worst apple juice concentrate ever imaginable. Quite possibly my least favourite "beer" of all time.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2007
Bottle, at London Shindig, August 2007. Whereas the previous Belgian fruity concoction (Fruli Cranberry) was better than expected, this one was, if anything worse. And the expectations were pretty low to start with. Clear gold colour. Plastic, synthetic apple on the palate. Flavour is sweet apples - very artificial feel. Syrupy, sticky mouthfeel. Very nasty indeed. No lambic whatsoever in evidence.
