(Draft. 03/2006). Aromas of sweet apple syrup. Tastes of sweet apples. Almost cloying. Not bad, but one is definitely enough.

Bottle. Hazy yellow color with a white head. The taste is an artificial apple flavoured body on a thin slight wheaty body.

Ahhh, thereís nothing like a beer layered with fruit juice. Saving the time of doing it yourself a lot of breweries seem to be pumping them out with the vigour of your average lager. I honestly donít mind these, I just donít fully understand the concept, or niche market to which they target. Tasted from the bottle into a tall flute. Opaque, muddy looking, palest íbruisedí apple yellow with fine streams of bubbles failing to raise a head bar a creamy white ring. Tart, sweet, fresh crushed apple nose with a light, musty, dried leaf note underneath. Flavoursome, sweet and tart in the mouth. Apple flavours dominate, but are more candied and artificial than fresh. Rather smooth and syrupy on the tongue; slightly gummy yet subtle enough as to roll down the back of the throat with ease. A strong apple peel flavour came in long into drinking and managed to give it more bounce and bite. Overall it was quite a refreshing beer that would easily make an great afternoon starter. Different!!! (33cL, 3.6% ABV, BBE 04/07)

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 30, 2005
Light golden color with some white head. A cider aroma with high sweetness typical of Huyghe which detracts somewhat from the overall experience.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 28, 2005
Fairly white color with a thin head. A sweet apple aroma. The dominant taste is of sugar with an apple background. Pouring sugar into apple juice will get roughly the same flavor. Certainly overly sweet for a beer.

bierkoning (11148) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2005
Greenish pale and slightly hazy. Artificial Granny Smith aroma. Sugary, syrupy apple flavor. Sickly sweet with just a touch of fruity, lemony sourness.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - OCT 11, 2005
Hazy yellow with a thin snow white head. Candied apple aroma with a sourish hint. Artificial apple flavor, just as expected. Bad beer, nice candybar.

Obviously the beer you have when youíre not having a beer. No points for guessing what the dominant aroma is here, but I also got a whiff of some lemony sherbert. Just had a look at the ingredients list on the bottle, and listed last is "aroma". Whatís the story there!! 30% apple juice apparently isnít enough to give aroma - minus a couple of marks for that!! The head was fizzy and quickly disappeared to leave a thin ring of fine foam, and some surprising lacing. Very very sweet, with a medium, cloying palate. I can discern the tiniest amount of wheat, but only fleetingly. A slight bit of fizz on the tip of the tongue opposes the flat appearance. The only thing remotely linking this to beer for me was the burp I got at the end!!
