3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden orange pour with a nice white head. A lot of fine bubbles in the glass. Aroma is apple and citrus up front with spicy and herbal characteristics as well. Taste is apple, honey, herbs, banana, and citrus. Not bad, but it doesn’t really come together for me. Carbonation is soft on the palate.

Tap pour - @ RHP. Pours clear golden orange-yellow with nice medium fluffy head. Nice creamy aromas of fruit, esters, bananas, and touch of citrus. Nice fruit, touch of peeper and bit of heat at the end. I like this, especially if it's hot out.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
750ml DFH bottle. Pours hazy, yellow-orange color. Crazy looking, white foam. Aroma of cayenne powder. Smells of apple & pear, and bready yeast scent. Strangly complex taste. Just tastes weird. Flavor of fresh juice and fresh vomit. Some pepper, some honey, a layer of juice, and an odd herbal touch. It really finishes with a flavor of vomit, not in an unwelcome way. (3680)

Bomber. Medium yellow with a thin white head. Banana, clove, lemon and slight apple scents. Peppery, lemony and crisp. Interesting.

Big bottle. Pours clear golden with lasting white head. Aroma big cinnamon/cloves with undertone of apple. Full body carries a complex sweetness with bitter notes. Overall a really interesting brew, but you have to be ready for the fruit/sweetness and spices. Complex and enjoyable.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear bright gold with a lasting white head. Nose is apples and bready yeast. Taste starts as tart apple and moves briefly into spice and cilantro then into a Belgian-y white smoothness before finishing with a spicy dryness. Body seems creamy and smooth, yet crisp and biting from the fairly high carbonation. A very nice hybrid with interesting flavors that kind of catch you off guard. Dangerously refreshing and easy to drink considering the abv.

Draft at Monks. Medium light gold pour. Lasting foamy white ring. Did not know it was a cider until halfway though. The apple is there when you look for it but otherwise there are dryer hop flavors that make this feel like a proper beer. Albeit a juicy but unadventurous one.a

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Interesting mix of flavors. Has a spicy mouth feel with notes of crisp apple, spice, and hints of bubblegum from what seems like a Belgian yeast strain. Overall pretty good, and a nice change of pace.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks good for a cider hybrid; a foggy orange with white head that slowly dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes yeasty and spicy with an average mouthfeel. Meh.
