From Cervezas belgas, Almuñecar. Fine but more boring than other lindemans fruity variants.The apple notes are soft yet noticeable, and the sour lambic part is totally hidden. More like a carbonated apple juice than a beer

Pours a clear golden color with a half inch head that left some lacing. Smells of apples and some funk. Tastes predominately of Granny Smith apples (very tart), a bit of sweet apples, funk and a bit of hops. Tastes more like a very well done cider than a beer. Medium bodied and carbonated,dry finish.

Bought one 12oz. to try, poured into a snifter out of the bottle. Beer is a hazy orange color with a 1/2 inch head that quickly disappears. Smell is strong-- sour apples bigtime, along with some funky notes. Taste is almost identical to smell, but a faint taste of brett is also at the end of the mouthful. Beer is sweet and sour, very even, low carbonation, and finishes sticky with a pleasant apple aftertaste.

Beer tastes great, but this doesn't feel like a beer, more like a high quality apple cider. Still I enjoyed this Lambic overall. And of course, price is an issue-- $6.99 for a 12oz bottle is a bit high, making this more of a once in a while treat instead of a beer for session.

I'm not a Lindemans hater. Their stuff isn't high-end lambic, but some of their offerings, like Peche, are pretty tasty. The Apple offering, however, is pretty much the least beer-like of the Lindemans fruit soda lambic. The smell and taste is more-or-less the same as a semi-sweet cheap cider like Strongbow. Blind, I think most people would assume this is a cider. Not much else to say. Certainly not to style, but even so, it just isn't one of the better ones from this producer.

Pours clear with no head to speak of. Very sweet smell of apples, I was expecting a bit more tart flavor. Not much of a beer flavor to it so I was a bit disappointed.

This was poured into a stange. Here goes. There was a nice light somewhat hazy pale orange to yellow glazed over sort of color with a fairly decent one finger white foamy head that left a decent amount of foamy light lacing. The smell had a super nice conglomeration of apples to spice to light/bitter hoppiness trying to invade my nose. The taste took those flavors and combined to flavor to assist in combining a nice real take that was quite flavorful into the beer itself. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in body and had a fairly sessionable quality running about it. Overall, in my opinion, not a bad beer to have,, I’m unsure if I would seek this out again.

Similar to an excellent cider, could be a bit less sweet
