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 (10945) - 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!!

Nose of sourish apples, some sweetness. Hazy yellow beer, small white head. Sweet apple flavor, some acidity. Too cloying.

joergen (22911) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2005
Bottled. Hazy yellow coloured with a white head. Aroma of overriped apples. Cloying sweet flavour of apples.

HildigŲltur (5103) - KÝbenhavn, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2005
Bottled. Hazy pale yellow coloured. Apple candy aroma. Sweet apple candy and bubblegum flavour. Funny.

Deeper golden with a small white head. Smells of almost sickeningly sweet apples. Thatís the only aroma... and itís too much. Flavor isnít nearly as bad as Iíd imagined... itís very sweet, very appley, but itís smooth and not overbearing. Now, I canít say Iíd revisit this beer in the near future, but itís something Iíd suggest to someone who wants something sweet.
