Bottle 0.25 l. Hazy beige yellow with a fizzy head. A bit of a weizen look. Nose is sour apples mosty. Flavor has sour apple, some citric notes, some caramel and toffee. Really difficult to think of this as a beer, but its rather enjoyable and much better than most ciders.

blipp (8749) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 6, 2008
Draft at Tap and Mallet in Rochester. Poured hazy goldenrod with a thin white head. Aroma is cider like and more sweet than tart with a strong note of granny smith apples and a lighter citrus note. Medium body, kind of tingly on the tongue. Sweet flavor, again with granny smith apples this time with a more noticeable tartness. A bit one dimensional but nice.

Bottle. Dont know if its because Im new to the lambic fruit category, but I have rated every one I have tried so far significantly higher than average. I think the overly sweet, fruity theme is very pleasant and unique. This one was very indicative of apples, but tart ones. Very refreshing and highly drinkable. I will purchase again.

allfreej (556) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 30, 2008
Bottled. Poured cloudy gold, off-white head. Sour nose--think Apple Jolly Ranchers. Flavor was overly sweet up front, like apple juice concentrate. Tart finish was like Jolly Ranchers. Perhaps apples arent the right choice for flavoring Lambics.

This is candy beer, and good if youre in teh mood for that. I could write more, but why? Four words will do: sour apple blow pop.

ilovedarkbeer (2728) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - APR 27, 2008
Pours a cloudy straw color with a medium sized creamy white head and some spotted lacing. Nose is pure apples and maybe some sugar. Taste is appley, sugar, and has a nice tart finish. I really like this beer because the funkiness of lambics is really well hidden. Remindes me of caramel apples suckers.

Aquilo (639) - Berkeley, California, USA - APR 25, 2008
First thing I noticed was that there was a standard beer cap - and then a cork, which I thought was a bit pretentious. Smells like apple candy. I have a horrible sweet tooth, so to me it smells wonderful. The flavor though, is definitely too sweet. It just tastes like apple candy, and has no subtlety at all. It also has the color of apple juice, with a thin white head. Finish is kinda sticky.

smith4498 (3582) - Winter Springs, Florida, USA - APR 25, 2008
Pours hazy golden yellow with white head. Aroma of sour apple. Tastes like sweet and sour apple juice. Nice and tart. Medium body with average carbonation. This is my favorite of the Lindemans fruit lambics.

esox (1225) - Oulu, FINLAND - APR 24, 2008
Bottled. Minimal head is soap-like foamy. Liquis is hazy and deep yellow to light orange in colour. Aromas are green apples that are fermented and yeasty. Almost like sweet apple cider with some extra yeast. Maybe there is hints of vanilla? Theres not much left of the sourness of unsweetened lambic. Quite pleasant muothfeel though, light enough to be refreshing and without being watery. To be served very chilled in a hot summer day.

Okay, so I like cider as well.This is a fun drink as Lindemans proves it can work well with two things: sourness and fruit, and green apples are the perfect conduit. Well done, if you like fruit beer.
