2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
It pours murky ochre; the head is off white and foamy. The aroma has notes of: apple candy, and bubblegum. The taste is heavy sweet; there are notes of: granny smith, pears, and cereal. The palate is light bodied and has medium carbonation; it has a short finish. Overall, it’s an inoffensive apple soda - no hate, just not that great.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from JSG Wine Merchants, Hills Road, Cambridge. On sale for 50p, nabbed the last one. Hazy whitish gold pour. Nice aroma... apples and cinnamon with a doughy/yeasty hit. Taste starts off ok, quite sweet with an apple Sourz tinge, but there’s a slightly funky off note. A weird beverage, but it’s refreshing in the oppressive June heat.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy pale golden color, topped with a soapy white head, soon dissaperaing. Nice sweet fruity aroma, apples naturally with some cider-like notes. Taste is sweet and fruity again with some apple sourness. Feels like an apple juice with something in the back. Pretty nice.

On tap at Delirium Tap House, Brussels.
A bit hazy golden/yellow with a white head. Very sweet with apples, apple pie and some vanilla. A descent "beer-soda" if you like that.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
It’s a hazy straw colour, leaves a small head of foam and lacing.
I smell green apples and some hints of cinnamon.
Tasty green apple goodness with some cinnamon spice, refreshing in its simplicity.
Light bodied with light carbonation.
I like well made fruit beers and this certainly qualifies as one for me.
