nearbeer (3842) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 15, 2014
650 ml. release #27, 7.9% abv. Hazy golden with a lasting film of cream. Aroma is spicy papaya, white grape must, funky wheat and bubblegum. First tastes of spicy tropical bubblegum, earthy vanilla and nutmeg. Later notes of white grape and peppery citrus zest. I get the tart green apple a little later and it sticks around along with the touches of white grape and pepper. Medium body has too-high carbonation but an excellent balance.

illidurit (2172) - Petaluma, California, USA - MAY 5, 2014
On tap at Beercraft. Gold with a white head. Aroma has a nice green apple candy character. Flavor is overbearing with spices, heavy coriander and nutmeg. Tastes like a flabby wit with apple juice and a dumptruck of spice.

Nsanders (567) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Tap at Pizza Luce. Translucent dark yellow with no head and very fine carbonation. Wheat, a little sour apple, lemon, funky yeast and wet grass. Taste is a really a mix of light malty sweetness, a tart lemon apple, and grassy bitterness. Body is lighter with a light stickiness broken up by the carbonation.

cereal, hay, citrus, cloudy, lightly bitter, light sweetness, medium sourness, light body, lively. definitely cider tartness and very refreshingly sprite and dry on the tongue. green apple flavor balances well with hay-like malt and almost no bitterness.

cbfobes (2344) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Poured from 22oz bottle, pours a light hazy gold with a thin bubbly white head, aroma is of a little bit of barnyard and funk with a hint of tart apple, flavor has some horse blanket and funk at first with a little bit of fruit in the finish, was hoping for a little more sour bite but still pretty nice, not bad.

Tap at Dublin’s. Pale yellow pour. Nose of bubblegum, tart green apple candy, and yeast. Flavor is light green apple, powdery yeast, and light fruit esters. Lingering green apple, yeast. Fairly sweet. Overall a good level of apple flavor, but touch too sweet.
