Marko (3965) - Split / Zagreb, - NOV 12, 2012
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.

Opaque golden w/ strong apple aroma - who would have guessed. Strong sweet apple taste, still some white beer mouthfeel there. You drink what is available in this country. (Dubai 201410)

"not at all like a traditional beer in the flavor or aroma. loads of apple, with a hint of cinnamon and honey sweetness. no ddiscernable hop or really even malt presence, but refreshing in it’s simplicity."

Alengrin (2087) - BELGIUM - AUG 18, 2014
Apple version in this series of witbier-based sweet fruit beers, with hazy yellow blonde colour, dense, snow white head and a very strong, artificial apple aroma; taste likewise dominated by artificial apple, sourish wheat note, soft, sugary and ending in cloying sweetness. Not utterly disgusting but way too sweet for me, like all those other Floris beers.

77ships (4135) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 16, 2014
Thanks to PriorL! Sampled 33 cl. bottle @ Gents Bierfestival 2014. Sampled as “Zoeteke Appelbier”. Lightly hazy artificial citrus, fluffy chemical white head. Extremely sweet nose, pure artificial sweeteners, beyond overkill, super sweet lemonade apple. Very chemical sweet taste, dough, artificial sweetener to the limit with insanely sweet sweetened lemonade apple juice. Touch sticky powdery body, touch lively carbonation. Beyond sweet.

Bottle. Cloudy yellow with almost no head. Aroma of green apples, yeast and spices, slightly phenolic. Taste of sweet apples, sugary and fruity. Medium-bodied with high carbonation. Very simple, but drinkable when chilled.

Na Newton het beste appelbier dat ik ooit geprobeerd heb. Lekker fris voor in de zomer
