Tap at CCB. Hazy gold orange white head good lacing. Huge cinnamon aroma with apples in the background. Mostly cinnamon with some apple and hops. Not enough apple and too much spice.

pours a murky orange/amber with a white head. aroma is cinnamon graham cracker with a touch of apple. flavor follows suit...a bit more appley in the taste than the nose. mouthfeel is light/medium and a bit watery with an earthy/appley finish that lingers unpleasantly...this just doesnt work for me.

On tap at brewery. Pours a golden yellow, white head. Aroma is all apples and cinnamon. It’s like apple pie. Taste is sweet, cinnamon, maybe apples, but light. Cinnamon is a bit strong for me, almost feels grainy, but not. Aftertaste is strong spice. No real hops, ok.

Tap at CCB. From notes. Beer pour brown with a off white head. Taste apple, cinnamon, and malt.. Has a little bitterness on the end.

On tap at the brewery, but I believe it was 7.5% abv. Pours a clear golden brown with thin creamy off-white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of Christmas and fresh baked apple pie. Taste is like a bittersweet apple jacks cereal with a lingering bitterness. Weird, interesting. Mixed it with the blueberry muffin brown and the hornswoggled and both of the those combinations were very nice. I could also foresee an sessions bomb with caramel vodka.

Jesterdeal (1789) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Aroma of citrus, apple and cinnamon. Pours orange and filmy. Taste is cinnamon apple up front and fades to a malty citrus hop. Finishes with cinnamon fighting with the hops. Weird.

pours gold with a thick white head. Aroma of cinnamon, apples and hops. Tastes like an apple pie with hops, cinnamon and apple forward with hops and malt on the finish. Smooth and crazy drinkable. Very cool treatment, i really want more of this.

From GABF week at Freshcraft Cigar City event. Hazy orange pour with a white head. Aroma is heavy on ciinnamon and apples. Taste adds in notes of citrusy hops. This is an excellent and tasty brew! I want more!

On draft at Freshcraft in Denver. Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a white head. Nose is apple pie with cinnamon tea along with some mild citrus character from the IPA. Flavor is huge apple cinnamon with bits of citrus and caramel malt. An interesting take on the style, but not an everyday drinking beer. Sweet and cinnamon on the finish.

Ibrew2or3 (6767) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Poured up on tap at Freshcraft in Denver with semi clear (murky) brownish amber with a light tan head of foam. The aroma is largely sweet stewed sugared apple wedges, cinnamon and light levels of tropical mango like fruitiness. The taste is straight up cinnamon covered sweet freshly baked apple pie with somehow a bit of mango tropical fruit and citrusy malt sweetened tangelo notes tossed in there as well. The hops are just strong enough to poke through the treatment and even give up a complimentary sensation of mild citrus hop bitterness. It leaves a cinnamon as well as sweet cooked apple sensation well into the after taste. Who knew these notes were going to go together so well? Wow, what a fun beer.
