3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a very pale yellow color with a small foamy white head that faded and left no lacing. The aroma was sweet apple and grape. The flavor was sweet bread, apple, honey and elderberries. Long sweet finish of apple and elderberry. A nice wine like presence throughout. Medium finish and medium body. Tasty.

Bottle thanks to Everett. Pours a clear gold with small frothy white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is citrus, floral and apple skin. Thin mouthfeel with flat apple and metallic finish. Meh

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale, champagne colored, bubbly. Standard longneck - it’s hard to tell the variants apart. The Pufnstuf trees are different without distinction. Sweet aroma, with an odd florality - I pick up some fresh peppercorn volatiles in there as well. Sweet, very sweet. Oddly fruity, and I get some peppercorn notes in the flavor profile as well. Light body, finish gets a little clingy. Ok, but not going for seconds. ABC, Bull Run.

12oz twist-off bottle, white label. Yellow color. Tastes of apple juice with a touch of floral, cranberry essence. Smells of flowers. Very thin. It’s better than Angry Orchard Crisp Apple. (3681)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. Pours clear and pale gold with a head that immediately sizzles away. Aroma is spicy pollen, sweet berry and apple. Tastes of spicy vanilla flower, apple-berry mix, and pleasant notes of peppery zest and woody pith. Light body is sweet but has a light astringency and a tart, zesty dryness on the finish. I like elderberry, and I like how they meshed it with the apple to create a totally different fruit flavor.
