This came in a gift pack with a bottle of the framboise and a Lindemans fluted glass. The glass is very nice and the lambic was above average also. It pours a hazy pale yellow with a frothy layer on top. I love the smell. It is like pure fresh apple juice. The taste is sweet and sour. It starts as sweet apple then the sour lambic follows and the sweetness comes back at the finish. It feels dry but no carbonation. This the other lambics it seems to be a great drink for toasting. I probably would not want more than 2 in a sitting.

This beer has a clear golden body with a bit of nice white head with good retention.A bit of spotty lacing clings to the outside of the glass. The aroma was not as sweet or cloying as the framboise. It gave me hope that maybe this would not be the sweet mess that that beer was. Some green apple and very mild funk. The flavor was like a melted green jolly rancher. Sweet, sour apple, not very appealing. Mouthfeel was way too heavy and carbonation was too low. Interesting beer, but it was really just not at all my preference. Way too sweet, almost like sucking on a hard candy.

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.

This does not taste a thing like beer, but it is tasty, nonetheless.

Review input from notes. Enjoyed 02/16/10.

Poured into Lindeman flute. Clear golden pear colored body. Effervescent one and a half finger head. Decent retention with a surprising amount of lacing.

Big apple aroma. Sweet and tart. Combination of natural apple juice and a rather processed artificial aroma. Not much else going on in the nose.

Sweet artifical apple flavor. Light touch of tartness on the back end. Very sweet and candy like, stops just short of cloying.

Light and crisp bodied. Sticky sweetness linger other wise finish is almost dry.

Very easy to drink. Flavors are not to my preference but not offensive. Could be enjoyable under the right circumstances.
