Hermod (2812) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JUL 24, 2012
25cl bottle @ Ruben, Budapest. Hazy orange, thin head. Aroma has apple and candy sweetness. Flavor has fresh apple juice, sweetener, low bitterness. Nothing that says this is beer, but quite refreshing still.

2012.08.26 - bottle 33cl - Yellow and hazy. Too sweet sugary beer with - roffel roffel - the flavour of apple. That sweet that you expect a swarm of bees. Sting like a bee ! Probably good for a woman’s skin (ask me not why)

Aroma of sweet apple drops (boiled sweets) - no malt or hops Hazy apple juice look large head dissipates to thin covering Over sweet with no bitterness or sour to cut it but pleasant sweet apple flavour Sticky and coating in mouthfeel

11.2 ounce bottle from Charles’s Street. Aroma is a pleasant apple cinnamon; does not smell like beer, flavor is also apple cider, not beer.

bartlebier (1195) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - JUN 25, 2012
This is not a beer but apple juice mixed with funky wheat beer leftovers. Gives artisanal Belgian fruit beers a bad name - at least in Germany concoctions like these have to be labeled "Biermischgetränk" so a real beer lover knows what he is in for (or should steer clear of). Not as vile as Floris Chocolate, as this one actually tastes like apple juice, but not to be confused with any for of cultured hop juice.

heavy (2075) - Split, CROATIA - NOV 18, 2012
0.33 l bottle shared with Marko. It poured hazy golden body with medium sized head. Apple aroma, some banana yeast, also barley notes which were especially pronounced later on in the flavor as some sharpness to generally soft fruity and chalky tasted sweet brew. Medium in body with longer, sweet and sticky flavor. Wasn’t too artificial for my palate, just a little bit and I enjoyed it no more or less than other Belgian fruit beers.

Cloudy light gold appearance; It has a faint smell of green apple, flower and white wine; small head, which is better than Lindemans Apple; light body and watery; Taste more like apple juice, with white wine taste not apparent, a real minus; Very sweet, no hop bitterness at all and nearly no tartness; It has a funny cholocate taste towards the end!

Comments: I looked forward to taste it, and I was let down, bad. Definitely a few pars below Lindemans Apple. It feels just like drinking apple juice instead of fruit beer, so why bother making it? :(

0.33l from Kuća Piva. Pours a hazy yellow-golden body with almost no head. Apple & malt nose, strange vague notes of chocolate. That continues into the taste, actually, the chocolate-like notes end up merging with the apple notes into something distinctly fake and sweet. Creamy though. Dunno, there’s something fake and repugnant about it. Meh.

Bottle that ogivlado found in Slovenia and shared with me (thanks!)
Poured a murky pale yellow body with a small thick white head that took its time to go away. The nose is remarkably fresh, green apple, slightly acidic. I expected more from the taste after that but it turned out to be disappointingly sweet, too sweet, green apple candy. Not too sticky and ok, certainly better than a 2.2 score would indicate, but still a disappointment.
