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.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2012 Bottle at Dan’s courtesy of Armin. Thanks man!!! Pour is very cider reminiscent; golden orange with a small white head that quickly dissipated. Smell is pineapple, light apple, light vegetables, pear, and wheat. Taste is light DMS, peppercorns, yeast, biscuit, pineapple, and pepper ending lightly spicy. Mouthfeel is medium with fizzy carbonation. Something about it is somewhat off-putting. Bleh.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice pour, with the rich golden look having a nice fizz to it. Quickly dissipates to a film. A really pleasant smell, perhaps the spice brings out the honey? A rich sweet smell that isn't forced.
Taste: Up front you get honey and spice, but there's little follow-through. I almost think the cayenne accentuates the spice, but then kills it in the aftertaste. Perhaps it does something to the taste buds? It's a powerful spice in an otherwise delicate flavor profile. Still though, I'm being harsh as it's pretty damn tasty. Some reviewers say it's watery? Disagree, and still can't believe it's 9%. It's a tad pricey, but I'd have it again
