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.

Tap at Delirium. Hazy golden colour with a white head. Aroma and flavour of apples and spice.

gyllenbock (5082) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 21, 2014
On tap at Delirium Tap House, Brussels. A bit hazy golden/yellow with a white head. Very sweet with apples, apple pie and some vanilla. A descent "beer-soda" if you like that.

Bill Becker (430) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - NOV 7, 2014
It’s a hazy straw colour, leaves a small head of foam and lacing. I smell green apples and some hints of cinnamon. Tasty green apple goodness with some cinnamon spice, refreshing in its simplicity. Light bodied with light carbonation. I like well made fruit beers and this certainly qualifies as one for me.

vipinvelp (2440) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2014
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 (2618) - 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.
