vyvvy (6396) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 20, 2008
Pours yellow / orange with a minimal head. The aroma has red & green apples and has some sweet and tart aspects. Crisp body with gentle sharp carbonation. The taste starts off more like a cider than a beer with lots of very green apple with some sweetness that resembles red apples. There is some tartness on the finish. Decent beer that is refreshing on a hot day.

Pwn3d (1962) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUN 3, 2008
Bottle like image. Very nice looking pour with lots of sediment floating around. Nose is straight up granny smiths, apple jolly ranchers, and wheat. Flavor is heavily focused on the apples and not much else.. extremely sweet and basically no alcohol. Too sweet to finish the whole bottle alone.

jredmond (8204) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 2, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2008 Bottle. Pours a nice body, hazy cloudy orange with white head and sediment floating at the bottom. The aroma is apple jolly ranchers - very sweet. The taste is the same, very very sweet. Can’t taste any alcohol in this - but makes sense.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2008
250 ml bottle. Cloudy whiteish yellow colour. Medium-sized white head. Strong fruity apple aroma. Granny Smith apples. Low carbonation level. Grainy flavours among the apples. Light lactic sourness. Mellow and delicate. Tannic apple flavours last all the way through and into to the finish.

3.2
janir (216) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUN 1, 2008
Pale yellow-orange color. White head relatively small. Aroma is full of sweet and sour, candy-like apple. Sweet and sugary apple flavor. Light-bodied and sugary palate. Though I usually don’t like much sweetness in beers, this is quite pleasant.

larsga (7509) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 1, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2008 Medium white head. Hazy, yellow body. Toffeeish yoghurty apple aroma, very clean. Sweet-sour yoghurty apple taste with wooden notes. Sharpish mouthfeel. Bitter aftertaste. Quite sweet, but very drinkable. Very nice! (0.25l bottle at Ole_R’s place.)

Several different samples from the wifes glass over the last year. I don’t think I could ever drink a whole glass of this. Way to sweet. And that is why my wife digs it.

FlacoAlto (4176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 20, 2008
Pours into my 25cl tulip glass with an initial finger-and-a-half thick, pale, off-white colored head. The beer is incredibly hazy and in fact showed no sign of ever clearing despite resting in my cellar for the last month. It is an opaque, orange tinged, gold color. Sticky, sweet, apple-candy aromas (very similar to jolly ranchers) are noticeable as soon as I pull the cork and are only more affirmed once I actually try and smell the beer. There are no subtle nuances here, the aroma is completely dominated by sweet apple notes.<P> As expected the taste is quite similar; it tastes like a apple candy, very unlike apples or cider, but instead more like concentrated, sweetened syrup for your breakfast pancakes. This is quite easy drinking, with a bit of fullness to it, though perhaps not quite as much as the sweetness might suggest. There is a touch of tartness in the flavor, but it gets wrapped up in the sweet apple notes it is hard to perceive, but I think this is all that is noticeable of any real Lambic flavors.

Not much to say about this, if you like sweet then this works as a desert, it certainly is not beer, but I wouldn’t say that it is offensive; the most offensive thing about it is that the word Lambic is on the label.

Wonderful apple aroma. Tart apple taste, granny smith definitely. Very sweet, which is a plus for me, but could make this one difficult for those not expecting it. Full flavored all the way through, delicious.
