Sounded nice, but had a sweet sugary taste. A chicks beer that you’d struggle to finish a whole one.

These florisgaarden beers are just very bad. This one is just applejuice, mixed with a bit of beer and loads of sugar. Like a sweet kriek, but then apple instead of cherry.

skortila (4343) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - NOV 25, 2004
Sweet, apple arom. Very artificial, like apple-candy. Cloudy, yellow coloured with a lasting white head. Taste is awfull sweet, artificial apple/bubblegum and just a little bitterness and perhaps some malt notes to give you the illusion you drink beer.

Cloudy yellow body small white head. The aroma is tons of apple, like a Now and Later. The flavor is tons of bubblegum apple, I guess that is artifical apple. No tartness as I would have hoped with an apple beer. No good. Repeat no good.

Kindly donated to me by a jolly nice couple from Colchester, in the Delirium Cafe, Brussels. Sweet, but very smooth apple brew. Not cidery - no sour edge. Soft, but full of orchard flavour. Golden delicious!

Nate (3549) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 7, 2004
Fresh apple cider aroma with some hops. Light wheat. Cloudy amber-gold, with foamy white lacing head. Medium watery body with light carbonation. Starts sweet with big apple taste. Light malts, some floral perfume notes, no hop bitterness and low acidity. Finish is fake apple berry sweetness. After is mild ethyl acetate and cereal.
Earlier Rating: 12/11/2003 Total Score: 1.8
Sweet & spicy apple aroma. Fake apple and pear, too. Bit of fruity hops. Cloudy pale gold with white head - little lacing. Medium watery body with light-medium carb. Very sweet. Like someone mixed apple juice and weak beer. Perfume-like apple taste followed by light hops. Light lager finish with apple-saccharin after.

Crit (3245) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 10, 2004
Cloudy yellow, lasting white head. Great apple nose. Apple flavor is spoiled by the spicy belgian yeasty overtones

Very good apple aroma, cloudy white, with a small head. Tastes like apple jelly, too sweet, fair.

jercraigs (7335) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 2, 2004
Bottle. Hazy pastel yellow body with a nice sized white head, not unlike the honey. Nice aroma, with oddly sweet granny apple aroma. Jolly Rancher? Some underlying chemical soup with a yeasty highlight. Very sweet. As sweet as the waitresses smile ;) Tastes not unlike what Ephemere Apple might be like with the addition of simple syrup. Sampled @ Smokeless Joes with DougShoemaker.
