2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ the Brewpub-Clear light golden pour w/a moderate white head. Fruity aroma. Flavors of light fruit & honey, w/a little bit of wheat, grain, & grass, didn’t find it to be spicy at all. A little bit of muddled/muted/weak flavor. May have suffered in comparrison to the Noble Rot I had in the same visit, but it just made me think "this is watered down Noble Rot", made me wonder why they bothered to make it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 750 ml Bottle shared from jcos, 11//15/12
Aroma: The nose is Belgian yeast, spice/coriander/clove, a little banana/fruit, apple, and wheat
Appearance: Pours a clear orange color with a lasting foam of white head that leaves fairly heavy lace
Flavor: The taste is much like the nose, fairly sweet, with a nice spice component, and minimal bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, has a creamy feel, fairly clean too, with a soft carbonation, and a spicy finish
I have to say, if the description didn’t say this was a cider-hybrid I never would have guessed it. It tastes (doesn’t look, but tastes) a lot like a nice Belgian Wit to me. I actually thought it turned out really well, a top quality example of the style I only thought it was...

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a slightly hazy light golden color with a super thick white head. Aroma is of yeast, plum, light cherry, coriander, and perhaps a little cider. Has a full sweet sour palate. Flavors that I pick up are yeast, saffron, grapefruit, hops, and some cherry. Leaves a sweet and bitter finish. It seems to me like an alternative version of the Midas Touch.

Botella @ KingCecil’s birthday party. Unclear pale golden colour, medium white creamy head. Quite pleasant sweet aroma of fruit with alco fumes. Good mouthfeel. Sweet fruity hoppy herbal flavour with some alcohol too.

Pours cloudy golden with a puffy white head. Aroma of apples with floral notes. Smells a lot like a Belgian triple with apples. Crisp clean taste of apples and spices. Cannot tell this is 9%. Great summer and early fall beer.
