I've only had the pleasure to try Lindemans apple and raspberry lambics, and I definitely prefer the apple to the raspberry. When poured, the head was a beautiful and fluffy white with the color of the beer being a cloudy amber, similar to the color or apple juice but without the clarity. It was tart and crisp, sour with the pleasant tastes of the wild yeast very much in the background and subdued. The carbonation was very appropriate; not overly or under. Medium thin mouthfeel. Lindemans pomme lambic was enjoyable and easy to drink; it's a great "celebration" beer that can easily be used in place of a Asti champagne.

Appearance: Translucent golden hue with a thin off-white head.

Aroma: Apple, vinegar.

Taste: Like green apple candy. Very sweet up front and then tart on the back end. A pleasant flavor but nothing all that interesting.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied but very robust for such a low ABV. Average drinkability.

Final Thoughts: Literally like drinking sparkling apple juice. Would I drink it again? If I'm in the mood for something sweet.

Pours an amber color with a touch of gold; funny enough, it looks like apple juice. Decent head, easily brought back to life by swirling the glass. The smell is heavy on the green apple and apple skins. And when I say heavy, I mean HEAVY. It smells like an apple orchard and not much else. Very sweet and tart aroma. The taste, as you probably already may have guessed, hits first with green apple. Tart and sour up front; think apple pucker or a green apple sucker. Once the tart sharpness subsides a bit, a sweetness comes through and washes everything over. A touch of funk is detectable in the background and definitely becomes more prominent as the beer gets warmer, but it is always secondary to the apple flavors. Very juicy and cider-like overall. Yeasty around the edges and leaving a slight yeast coating in the mouth, but not a great amount. Nothing notable on the grains or hops - they're certainly there, but it's hard to detect much else other than the apple and the very slight, corky funk. Thin body, lots of carbonation.

This stuff is tasty. But I'm slightly biased towards green apple. It doesn't have a strong beer character, and even the "lambic" notes are secondary to the tart and sweet flavors and aromas of the apple. This stuff is certainly delicious but I'd have to limit myself to one. Almost more of a juice than a beer.

L H06 JPO which according to a thread on here it was bottled August 06, 2010. This came out of a Lindemans gift box and it was covered in dust. 12 oz corked and crowned bottle into the accompanying flute glass. Glass tilted so the word "Pomme" faces me at all times. This isn't the Kriek!

A - Pours a crystal clear golden yellow color with a thin cap of bone white head. Plenty of sticky lacing and retention. Rising carbonation. Yes, this does look like apple juice.

S - Sour apples and wet cardboard. The apples smell fantastic, the oxidation does not.

T - Tart and acidic apples lead into more robust and sweeter baked apples. The aftertaste does have the beginnings of that distinctive oxidized flavor. Still pleasant and very drinkable. Mouth feel is almost syrupy with a nice prickly carbonation.

O - Maybe a touch too old, but its still a tasty fruit lambic. The general hatred towards this brewery is understandable but fruitless (pun) in my opinion. They don't produce uber limited stinky brett walez, they make attainable and well priced sweetened fruit beers. If you like apples, you won't hate this beer.
