750 mL enjoyed in snifter.

A: Clear gold with a frantically dissipating white head. Doesn't look too great.

S: Yum! Strong green apple...like a good cider.

T: Follows the nose, but there's a nondescript musty basement taste going on, too. I even pick up a bit of oak. Definitely more complex than...say....some type of hard cider. I like it.

M: Appropriately light and fizzy. Not bad, not bad.

O: I probably enjoyed this more than most people do. I'm a fan of hard ciders, and this one tasted like a hard cider aged in an oak barrel. It's complex, refreshing, and damn good. I don't know if Lindeman's just uses apple syrup or the real thing...and...frankly, I don't care because the result is amazing.

750ml bottle served in a Lindemans flute glass.

L - clear yellow color with a bubbly white head that thinned to nothing despite the constantly rising bubbles.

S - green apples, apple juice.

T - tart green apple flavor with a sweet finish.

F - crisp, light and very refreshing.

O - a good example of a apple lambic.

This beer pours a straw yellow with a small fluffy head and minimal lacing. He disipates after a while.

The nose on this one has an odd funkiness too it, it's really hard to explain I almost want to say metallic funk. Apples are present as well.

Taste is slightly sour with a huge apple flavor. Think sour apple jolly rancher and you have a good idea. Personally I enjoyed it, probably won't be for all though.

Crisp and refreshing, definetely a good summertime brew.

Overall I enjoyed it as I enjoy almost all of Lindemans offerings.

Poured from a 355 ml bottle into a Lindemans flute. Dark champagne color and very clear with active carbonation. Two finger head that quickly dissipated. Smells really nice of apple, pear and some herbals, very sweet smelling. Taste mimics the aromas very closely. At first this was terrifically refreshing but as it went down and warmed a bit, the sweetness got a big cloying for me. This tastes very similar to pear ciders that I have had but with more carbonation. I would turn to this for a refreshing summer beverage.

Unk bottle date.

Nice, standard yellow ale with a scattered foam top. Excellent clarity. SMells like apple jolly ranchers. Smells nicely of green apples when sweet and ripe.

Nice, crisp apple flavor with the slightest sourness on it. Reminds me of, again, apple jolly ranchers. Thin with higher carb and a wet finish. Yummy beer.

Poured into a 8 oz flute glass. Pours a straw yellow, with a one inch white head, that falls quickly. Very little lace. Smell is very strong apples and champagne. Taste is like hard cider and champagne were mixed 70% cider and 30% champagne. Body is fairly thin, I don't have very much experience with the style, I assume this is usual. Lots of carbonation and easy drinking, if you can handle some sour apple. This is so different than a beer, it amazes me that it is called beer. Not a bad change of pace.

Enjoyed in a snifter

A: pours a golden color. Pours with a 1" head, which is of a white color. A lot of lacing.

S: smell is very sweet, smells like a granny smith apple. Smells very fresh and refreshing.

T: very carbonated. Taste is similar to smell in that it resembled a granny smith apple. Very sweet, almost cidery.

M: sweet, not too sour and carbonated so keeps mouth flavor very engaged and on edge.

Overall, enjoyable, but I think that the black cherry flavor is more enjoyable personally. This one resembles apple juice/ cider too much for me to believe it is beer.
