From 09/01/12 notes. Poured from a 375ml bottle into a glass.

a - Pours a hazy bright yellow-burnt orange color with one finger of fluffy white head that leaves quickly, and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of sweet green apples, Belgian yeast, fruity malts, and a tiny bit sour. Smells a bit like hard apple cider.

t - Tastes follows the nose but a little sweeter. Tastes of sweet green apples, light Belgian yeast and spice, and fruity malts. Like sweet hard cider.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation evident. Very easy to drink.

o - Overall another good lambic from Lindemans, though not my favorite, as I like dark fruits better. This one is straight up sweet green apples; I think if you like hard cider and apple juice you would really like this one.

0.375l bottle.
Pours slightly cloudy reddish-golden beer with decent off-white head and specific sediment. Smell of cider and green apples, no more. A taste follows the smell - sour apples, good carbonation, light body. Very light and drinkable summer beer.

Review from 10/2010 notes. Poured into a Lindemans stange. Pours a light orange amber with a small white head. Pleasant sour apple aroma. Carbonated sweet and sour apple flavor finishing with sour apple and a slight bitterness. Pleasant light bodied lambic, much like a sparkling cider. I enjoyed it.

Poured from a small bottle into a proper Lindemans glass. The beer is crystal clear and dark straw-colored with a beautiful white fluffy head and excellent lacing. The nose has strong aromas of green apples. Very cidery. Not getting much funk.

The beer has a medium body and a nice, firm mouthfeel. There's a good level of carbonation to wake up the taste buds and make the beer lively on the palate. The flavors are sweet and grainy up front, with apple and pear flavors dominating. There's not much sourness until the beer reaches the back of the palate, where it clashes with the apple and comes off as an almond-like tinge. The finish is quite mouth-drying, but not sustained.

Overall, this is a nice tasting beer, but it's a bit too sweet and not sour enough for my taste. When I'm drinking a lambic, I want to know I'm drinking a sour beer. This is sweet enough to almost make one confuse it with a cider.

Tried a bottle of this at Gigs in London. Pours a golden yellow/orange colour. This instantly reminded me of a Jolly Rancher with the strong apple flavour and slight sour finish. It would be hard to drink a lot of this, but its crazy how much apple flavour they were able to get into it. Interesting beer.
