3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: bright gold color, topped by a soapy white head and minimal lace. Aroma: strong apple juice scent, over a light bed of garden herbs and some spice (yeast or peppers, not sure). Taste: delicately sweet, with a hint of apple tartness and some earthy herbs; did not get much spice from the peppers. Finish: hint of a witbier finish (slight wheat twang), and a slightly sticky mouth; alcohol very well-hidden. Notes: As with most of these unusual/creative DFH beers, I didnít think it was amazing, but it was very good. Iím glad I tried it.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clean and striking gold pour with a thin white head. Very nice nose, earthy and yeasty notes. Belgian influenced for sure. Lightly spicy notes and an herbal quality. Bread dough. Big in the nose and flavor. Very round and full palate. Earthy and raw flavor, yeasty and bread dough notes.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From notes: Poured hazy golden-amber, with a 3-finger white head. Aroma of tart apple mixed with some mild spices. Body is light-to-medium, but with an oily thickness to it. Flavor is woody up front, with some tart apple behind it. The spices linger in the finish.

The leaves tremble in the wind and the orchard is awaft with cayenne and coriander...overripe apples and pears spill their fermented juices upon the earth. The glass is full of golden light. Ok, so at this point I taste the beer and find that the aroma is much more enjoyable than the taste...which isn't bad...it's a little too peppery...hot almost on my lips. The apple taste is very fresh but the finish is off a bit. Still it is very worth trying and overall good.

Complex aroma of spices, apple, pear and peppers. Taste is wit beer-like, but you wouldn't predict it if you read the description. Very spicy flavor from the cayenne peppers plays well off the apple and they both get a boost from the hops. Always in awe of these guys and the outcomes of their recipes.

Poured a clear yellow color with a very thin white head that was stable. Lots of grapes and apples in the aroma. Lots of spices as well. Taste is very well balanced with a good amount of spices and fruit. Lots of apples with clove, but not too syrupy. Aftertaste has some of the cilantro, of which Iím not a fan. Kinda dry spicy finish. Overall very nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml. bottle. Pours clear golden yellow with a short white head. Aromas of grain, Belgian yeast, light fruit and spice. The alcohol is showing through, but without really burning. Hops on the finish, but also a little tart from the fruit. Very intersting beer.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
18.06.2013, tap @ Blind Tiger Ale House NY:
Small shortlasting head. Aroma is slightly fruity, wheat, citrus, hay, yeast, banana, grass, some tropical fruits. Taste is slightly dry fruity, wheat, citrus, yeast, hay, tropical fruits, citrus peel, banana. Medium bitterness, dry mouthfeel. Fair enough, but this is more like a weissbier than a fruit beer.
