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

750 ml bottle. Pours golden with tall, long-lasting, foamy white head and nice lacing. Nose is of sweet apple, funky yeast, hint of hops and sourness. Body is medium and very tangy. Taste is very sour, funky, tart with balancing sweet apples. Finish is long and sour. Good refreshing brew.

Pours a slightly hazy golden color. Frothy white head dissipates leaving lots of sticky white lacing on the glass and a thin white layer of foam on the beer. Sediment remains in the bottle.

Smell has a strong aroma of apples - slightly sweet, but no different from the smell you get when you bite into a fresh ripe apple. Almost cider like in aroma.

Taste is very apple forward. It tastes like straight up golden delicious apples. Sweet, with a slight tartness, but balanced overall. Id say its a touch sweet for a lambic, but its not too much. Also, the apple tastes quite natural and avoids tasting like apple juice or something fake.

Feel is crisp with medium carbonation. Medium mouthfeel. Slightly dry finish.

Overall a very good lambic. The apple works really well in the beer. I think this beer is under appreciated based on the reviews here.
