Golden color......a little hazy. Fluffy head......pungent aroma of green apples. Very sweet apple flavor up front. Mouthfeel has just a hit of crispness. Sweet fruit flavor continues into the back, though balanced by a few tart notes......long, apple-filled finish. A very easy drinking lambic.

Embrouille (2854) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 16, 2008
Bottled 25cl. It pours a hazy golden beer with a white head. The nose is mainly of apples. Very sweet taste. Lots of candy showing up. Apple dominating. Light finish. Decent.

Granny smith aplle taste, slightly funky aroma with sour apple candy. I kind of like it despite it being a tad bit too sweet.

Bottle. High creamy and lasting white head. Clear golden body. Distinct sour apple aroma. Relatively sweet apple flavor without carbonation and a long bitter sweet aftertaste.

Apples, but not overpoweringly so in comparison to some of the brewer’s other lambics. Nice golden appearance, with a taste reminiscent of cider, but with a more delicate sweetness and apple taste. A head that dissipates quickly, and a taste that isn’t terribly complex, but does quite well on the one note it hits - apple!

DSG (15237) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 9, 2008
Bottle. Murky orange with a small white head. Aroma of green apples and a bit of red apples as well. Sweet flavor with apples, a bit of sugar and light acidity. Rather light in body and a bit sticky in the mouth.

Beerman6686 (6611) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 7, 2008
Poured light brownish body with an off white head. Aroma was completely sour apples. Flavor was also mostly sour apples with other funky sourness in the finish.

375 ml bottle

Thakns to daknole for sending this. I probably would never purchase one myself but revisiting a Lindeman’s lambic revealed why they are the safest gateway into the world of sour beers. More sweet and sugary than tart this was like that recent soft drink based on green Jolly Ranchers.

Aroma / Appearance - The cloudy brownish body was a bit murkier than I anticipated. The trace of sourness was hidden by a strong Jolly Rancher note with malt on the edges. Unlike its more serious counterparts (Cantillon, 3F, etc) this was not intense at all.

Flavor / Palate - A blend of sweet and sour tickled the tongue before depositing a candy taste in the throat. That flavor was a blend of Jolly Ranchers and green Sour Patch Kids. With the aggressiveness present in other companies offerings this was slightly above average. The only thing going for it is the drinkability; this can be finished in a short time without any chance of stomach rebellion. If the price point were less than $5.99 it might be a better value.

Ljunkan (530) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - AUG 6, 2008
Bottle from some supermarket in a little "town" called Degerfors, Sweden, brought too me by a friend. Aroma of apples, not that much else to find there. Flavour is mostly of sweet sour/apples, but the sweetness feels a bit weird (I think it’s sugar subsitute in the beer if I’m not mistaken, and that feels a bit awful). Weird stuff... it’s not that bad though, thanks to the slight sourishness, and I can drink it.
