pintbypint (2593) - Edmonton, Alberta, - OCT 9, 2010
650ml brown bottle. Pours a lemony yellow colour, cloudy. Creamy white head which clings to the edge of the glass. Nose has some apple sourness to it, some light wheat malt. Flavour has some sweet citrus, green apple skins, wheat. Finishes dry with lingering wheat aftertaste. Medium body with a somewhat creamy feel. Not bad, decently refreshing.

My roommate bought a case of this when It was still available. That was one of the best days of my life. This beer from what I remember was my go to beer when I smoke my hookah. I remember it was not too sweet which I like. I donít really know how to rate beer so I just tell stories. I like Twilight.

gramity (1307) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 24, 2012
Realized I hadnít migrated this rating over! Time to fix that. Pours a cloudy light straw yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is like baked apple pie. Apple, cinnamon and bready yeast. Taste is very tangy with sour apple and a good wheat backing.

reebtogi (4151) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 18, 2011
650mL bottle poured a hazy straw color with a small white head a blotchy lacing. Aroma of Granny Smith apples and yeast. Taste is sweet apple fruitness and some yeast in the finish. Mouthfeel is cidery. Not one of my favorites in this style.

Aroma of granny smith apples. Pours cloudy straw yellow, foamy white head. Grassy, apples, with astringent finish.

jercraigs (7790) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2011
2010-01-23. Lightly hazy pastel yellow, modest foamy white head fades. 3+ Flavour is a bit tart up front, fruity apple like overtones, dry finish, tart wheaty bite. 6+ Dry fruit and wheat in the aroma, light grassy hops. 6+ Average palate is effervescent. Enjoyable but pretty mild, a bit more tart than my preference - not sure if thatís entirely intentional or a sign of age. Okay. Bottle via trade with Vertical Bacon Strips

mabel (5414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2011
[3565-20110123] 650mL bottle. Hint of woody manure plastic in the aroma but has yeast notes mostly. Slightly hazy, light orange brown body with a quick foamy white head. Light yeasty apple sauce malt flavour has a tiny bitter nibble. Light-medium body. Interesting to sample but is a little odd. (6/3/6/3/13) 3.1

Pleasant and refreshing, but nothing to push it above average. Pours hazy-yellow straw colour. Foamy head like youíd expect. A little funky yeastiness. Lots of apple, but its still grain dominated (not a cider for sure!). Could use a little more spice or something.

DuffMan (6670) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 29, 2010
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Densely cloudy lemony yellow with a frothy creamy white head. Aroma is extremely sweaty, to the point of smelling like the inside of a latex glove. Not pleasant actually. Wheaty flavor, sour apple accents. Tart-sour finish. Briskly carbonated, crisp and refreshing, although not especially complex, and with no real defining apple character.

Scubaguy (230) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 18, 2010
It pours a cloudy yellow color with a puffy white head that does linger around. It has a large amount of carbonation. On the nose there is a dominate anything. But I am getting some light sour and in addition to that some wheat. The flavor starts off with some good wheat but right away it becomes dominated by huge amounts of green apples. This to me is missing some spice. As well itís way over carbonated. It finishes with a little sourness and some bitter citrus. I donít know what to say about this. I personally dig granny smith apples. I think if the wheat had a bigger presence and the apples were dialed back it would be better.

Pours hazy yellow with a very thick tall head. Looks the way a wit should. Aroma is slightly sour and very yeasty, with a strong preasence of apple. Flavour is very nice strong flavour of apples sour bold and fruity. nice mouth feel. this is a nice brew.
