3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours pale gold into a shaker. Bright white head with good retention recedes leaving spot lacing to coat surface. Yeast and yarrow aromas. Soft with sweet fruity yeast, cilantro and bubblegum front to back. More of a wit than a cider - didnít pick up on many cider qualities.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Clear, pale, gold with a huge off-white head and decent lacing. Aroma of apple, banana, bubblegum, sour funk, and mild spice. The taste is nice and crisp, somewhere in the middle of a hefe and a saison with apple and a mild spiciness. I really donít get cayenne and cilantro specifically, but whatever is in this, the flavor comes together really well. Medium body, average carbonation, light dryness. Quite good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma is fairly light - it reminds me of a hefeweizen, only a little off. I might be detecting the pepper too. Color is a the yellow of a pale ale but with an orange hue with almost no head despite visible carbonation bubbling up. Taste is an interesting blend. I still detect the wheat of a hefeweizen, only a little off, but in addition a sweetness maybe coming from the cider and a spice maybe from the cayenne. Not stellar but imaginative.

Aroma is first sweet but then has spicy hints. Clear but light yellow brown. Has a very complex taste, I barely taste the apple with all of the other spices. Is sweet with a small cayenne spicy finish. Not my average fruit beer but I like it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Only two bottles left out of my six pack case of this so I figured I should finally rate this. Pours a sort of dark golden orange color with a big thick cream colored head that fades very slowly and leaves nice lacing in the glass. Aroma is like a wit with saison farmhouse yeast, slightly funky and slightly spiced, not getting any cider notes, but I am gettin some decent cilantro scents. Taste is yeasty with lots of wit and saison hints, lemony tasting, kind of herbal and grassy, sweet from the apples and a tad bit of heat from the cayenne, awesome brew.

25 aug 2012, bottle. Light yellow, clear, no bubbles. Nose is very fresh bread, lots of caramel malt, faintly spicy, some slight apple notes. Thin body and lightly fizzy. It has a farmhouse background, big malt, apple taste isnít prominent but it is sweet and it must come from the apple cider background. Actually it isnít bad.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a weak, thin cheddar orange with a nose of seltzery bread and light apple. Flavor is sugary bread, apple, and a touch cinammon. Not much going on here. Average mouthfeel. This beer should be awesome but it falls very short.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ Coalhouse Pizza in Stamford, CT. My favorite aspect about this beer is its puffiness and pillowy texture as it drinks almost like a nitrogen-infused beer. Since they didnít overdue the yeast and wheat, this pillowy texture prevents this beer from being too bready and overbearing. I like this beer, but I didnít get many new notes from the exotic ingredients within this beer. To me, this is a solid beer, but not worth the pricetag.

Its a dry apple cider that tastes pretty boozy and has a detectable burn in the finish from peppers. Its not particularly what Iím interested in when I buy a beer.

Tempting aroma with a basic pour leads to a balanced taste and satisfying mouthfeel.
