Pours a cloudy gold with some white head that leaves a bit of lacing. Nose is, surprise, surprise - apple. To me it already reminds me of an apple Jolly Rancher. I give it a 3 because it reminds me too much of the candy and lacks maturity. Taste is nasty. Tastes like sour apple. Like that candy was melted and morphed into a drink. It gets more tolerable as times goes on, as is typical with Lindemans brew. But really. Eck. You might as well put this in a bottle and let your kid drink it as apple juice, if it weren't for the alcohol in it. No way am I going to be able to finish this bottle...or an inch more of what is in the glass. Horrid. The only thing I can think that would save this is a proper pairing with food.

A- Pours a yellowish gold color with a descent white head.

S- A pretty overpowering apple smell and that't about it.

T- Just like the nose, very sweet, and tons of apples.

M- Fizzy carbonation and light to medium in body.

D- Reminds me more of apple juice/cider than beer no thanks for me.

Presentation: 355ml (12 fl.oz.) cobalt green bottle sealed with an embedded cork and Lindemans logo’d crown cap, all covered in a Granny Smith colored metallic green foil. It has a very traditional looking yet generic Lindemans cream colored label. “Pomme Lambic” is the name, yet quirkily it is also referred to as a “Malt beverage with Apple Juice and Natural Flavor added”, which destroys the traditional setting and sits it firmly into the commercial arena. No strength or best before date but a recommended serving temperature of 38-41 Degrees Fahrenheit.

Appearance: Light golden body. Soft white head remains at ½” thick throughout. Gentle lacing with a bold carbonation supported by a resilient pack of streamers throughout, the champagne factor is prevalent in the looks.

Nose: Green apple skins and forthright apple tones. False nose with a pungent sweet apple candy aroma. Simulated sour tinges.

Taste: Sweet apple skins, Granny Smith bites with a high artificial input from synthetic apple juice. Forced and far from real, the reproduction tastes are of adjuncts, imitation juices and E–numbers. Lacks sharpness, which I would expect from a real “lambic”.

Mouthfeel: Champagne Charlie with an apple soda base which helps to promote the fizz to a manageable level.

Drinkability: The sticky sweetness is too much, the fizz belligerent and the overall artificial character is dominating. 355ml is just about the limit.

Overall: Nothing repulsive. Absolutely no beer base, and it definitely is not a lambic, it is….well, erm….nothing more than expensive Apple Juice. A chick beer hands down. Nice enough, but I find it hard to acknowledge that I am even writing a "beer" review for this alcopop. Shockingly predictable, just as I imagined.

Somehow I think I'm being a little too generous here. Anybody else remember the horror that was Apple Bach from Cherryland? Anyway, poured with a smallish off white head that soon subsided and a tiny bit of lace. Color is a hazy amber. Aroma is solid tart apples. Flavor is solid sweet tart apples. Body is ok and carbonation is fizzy. Finish is like flavor. Doubt that I'll ever have another.
