Pours a translucent gold. Aroma of green jolly ranchers. Taste is tart, green jolly ranchers without the candy sweetness. Really different, really delicious.

Draft... Pours clear and amber with no head. I got cornered by a couple at the bar and didnít get to take a lot of notes, but itís easy enough to remember that the aroma and flavor have a lot of Granny Smith characteristics - fantastic malic acidity. The nose does have a slight fallen-apple component, but for the most part, itís all about fresh Granny Smiths. Full-bodied with gentle carbonation. The flavor offers a very nice balance between sweetness and sourness. Finishes tart and dries out a touch. Reminiscent of a sour and dry Spanish cider. Great stuff.

Pint pour at the brewery, golden with no head. Nose is sour apples and tartness. Flavor follows, tart and bright. I like it cause itís a bit of a jump from a traditional cider. Not bad

Julie says it is very sour and not her cup of tea. Julie says ick. Julie gives it a 1

Draft at Ginger Man with Linh, Streets and Annie for their engagement! Pours a clear syrupy golden orange body with no lacing or carbonation. Aroma is really nice sweet Apple candy flavor - essentially like melted green apple jolly ranchers. Mouthfeel is pleasant - not too sugary, just the right amount of tart and sour candy. Great cider.

Poured from a tap. Clear golden color, with medium carbonation, no head. Medium tart Apple aroma. Medium body with a tart Apple flavor and light finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BelgianBeerGal (3242) - Panama City, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2014
Draft at Fishale. Relatively still, bronze pour with no head. Aroma is big sour apple aroma but not fake. Flavor includes the sour bite but also some meaty apple. Great.

On tap at CCCM. As others have pointed out, this is green-Apple jolly rancher in cider form...which is not a bad thing.

holdenn (2083) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2014
On tap at Lokal in Miami. Pours a clear orange with no head. The aroma is light some fruity tart notes. Tart juicy fruit flavors. There is definitely some sour apple jolly rancher in there. But that description degrades this beer some because itís not overly sweet or tart and it isnít harsh in the throat. Long apple finish. Tasty.

Tap at shamrock. Gold amber pour not much head thats gone quickly. Visible carbonation. Smells like green apple jolly rancher. Pretty much tastes like the though not quite as sweet. One dimensional but taste really good if thatís what you want.
