Good fruit beer. More better then artificial beermix. Cloudy yellow color with nice white head. Aroma of apple and wheat. Sweet but fresh taste. Very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330mL bottle. Best before 30/11/13. Oops. Seems to me that I was gifted this after said date, and I didn’t bother to check earlier. Meh. Pours a hazy yellow with a big-bubble white cap. Seems effervescent enough to sustain a consistent thin froth. Aroma is rotten apple syrup, and wheat. An odd cinnamon fruit compost. Taste is very apply-sweet. Low carbonation, and a filmy mouthfeel.

Beautiful turbid wheat beer. Great looking in glass with small head. Perfect for refreshing during hot summer afternoon. Cereal notes are clearly distinguished on the strong apple background.

Bottle from my wife at Christmas. Seems this beer get s a bit of a bashing here, but it wasn’t bad. It’s a cloudy fresh apple juice looking beer with a nice fluffy white head. Nose is sweet apple, light pear, apple sweetness and sourness and touch of artificial sweetness. Taste is actually quite nice. Like apple juice in a light beer, but it kind of works.

Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff nov-12: ekstremt søtt. Som en tynn, musserende eplemost, men parfymert smak i tillegg. Gi meg eplemost fra Hardanger eller Ryfylke!

ChrisOs Marvellous Pre GBBF Mega Tasting. Light haze on this pale gold beer. Fluffy white head. Light dry palate. Sweet and sour sherbetty apple. Elderflower and lemon as well. Semi dry finish. The first mouthful was horrendous but this was ultimately a grower.

Bottle at Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig, 2012, London. Pours lightly hazy yellow with a faint, white foam head. Sweet apple and spice aroma. Ultra sweet flavor, loads of additional sugar. Light bodied with average carbonation. Super sweet to finish, lots of artificial apple character. Rough.

sulawang (644) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 4, 2012
pours cloudy orangish/yellow with a nice foamy head, good retention, not much CO2 activity. Fruity pressed red apple cider on the nose. Very creamy up front, fruity unfiltered pressed woody apple juice on the nose, wheat, tangy backdrop, light sourness, 6/10-gentle sweetness. Low-medium complexity, medium depth, great transitions, good carry, excellent drinkability. Superbly refreshing and easy-drinking.

Bottle @ Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig. Pours light gold with no head. The nose is spicy apple and cinnamon. The taste is apple, spiced fruits, lightly syrupy and sweet. Light body, drinkable. This actually isn’t that bad!
