Pours clear yellow gold with a fair sized white head. Smells of apples and cilantro. Taste is fruity, crisp cilantro, and a touch of cayenne heat. Light-bodied with a smooth texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Dogfish Head Positive Contact finishes fruity and a little funky.

Bottle. Amber beer with a cream head. Apple and spice aroma with light malt. Apple and spice flavor with light yeast. Medium bodied. Apple and yeast lingers with spice and earthiness.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
750ml bottle into a DFH signature glass. Bottled in 2012A.
A - Very clear golden amber body. Frothy three finger high soapy white head. Settles down a thin cap with massive amounts of lacing and retention.
S - Smells pretty wit like (bready and spicy Belgian yeast, banana esters, bubble gum) with some creative edges. There is a nice note of sweet and slightly tart Fuji apple juice. Can’t say I pick up any cayenne pepper, but the slightly vegetal and herby finish points to cilantro. Very balanced and inviting.
T - Again, the usual witbier notes of bananas, cloves, yeast, and wheat. Apple juice sweetness with just the faintest hint of pepper which is present mostly in some warmth. Finishes with a bit of an herbal vegetal quality but still remains quite sweet.
M - The mouth feel is actually pretty damned amazing. Perhaps its from the addition of apple cider, but it works really well with the flavors. Medium bodied with a creamy mouth feel. Its not slick or coating, just silky smooth. Finishes dry with some spritzy carbonation.
O - I was really impressed by this beer. I do get the Fuji apple cider, but the cayenne and cilantro are really hidden. Still makes for a crazy delicious and refreshing beer. Call me crazy, but a six pack of these along with some awesome music sounds perfect.

Complete disaster. Smells like apple and corn. Tastes like apple and corn, and what I imagine sweat socks taste like. I’d be embarrassed to put my name on this.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Straw, a little dark, sediment floats about, moderate frothy white head, nice lacing.   Soft non-descript fruitiness, subtle spices.   Perhaps its too cold now to discern.   Sweet, seems a little white wine like.   Seems more grape than apple, which is odd.   Not getting much of the cilantro or cayenne pepper.   To me it seems like a Wheat like beverage, mated with a bit of white wine.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Hides the 9% ABV well.   I dunno man, seems like a Wheat, a bit of Belgian, with some white wine aspects.   Enjoyable.   Would like to have had it drier and perhaps a bit more tart, but otherwise nice.

Aroma is eatery, wheat, light apple aroma and some clove. Flavor is apple, savory on the back end with a trace amount of heat.

Pour from da big bottle. Thanks, Kim! The aroma is of sour gala apples. The appearance isn’t very good cause I see a lot of stuff floating around in it, the taste is good, though. Better than I thought it would be, fo sho. It starts at a dry sour, then rolls into a more apple sour. Really interesting.
Overall, I found this beer to be better than I imagined, because it sounded too busy. Never really caught the cilantro like I thought I would. Couldn’t taste the alcohol at all. This beer would be good for taking a bottle for your self to a Renaissance festival, because mead is too dang sweet.

Smells alot like a Belgian Wit beer, but very clear in appearance. The apples come through in the taste, but not the cilantro or cayenne pepper (probably a good thing). Light and refreshing, especially for a 9% abv beer. Body is light, fairly carbonated. The taste is slightly sweet with a dry finish. I was scared by the cilantro and cayenne, but I really liked this beer. Definitely worth a try.
