Marko (4540) - 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.

cmacklin (572) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 24, 2016
330ml bottle. (As Floris Apple, 3.6% ABV) Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a medium, fizzy, short lived, white head that leaves, spotty lacing. Sweet aroma of green apple, pear and soap. Sweet, fruity flavour of green apple and yeast with a slightly dry, sour finish. Light body with a watery texture and soft body. Very similar to a cider.

Bygers (1099) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 21, 2016
Bottle 0,33l. Pours a hazy pale golden color, topped with a soapy white head. Aroma of apples naturally with some cider-like notes. Taste is sweet and fruity again with some apple sourness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HuskerTan (1271) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - OCT 8, 2015
Bottle. A- Apples, apple juice, sweet, spice, caramel. A- Orange color, hazy liquid, minimal head. T- Apples, slightly sweet, spice, caramel. P- Light body, average texture, medium carbonation, sweet finish. O- I’d hoped for some reason this would be really good. Yea, it’s like most other apple beers. A nice touch of caramel to give it a caramel granny smith apple taste which was nice, but certainly did nothing to excite me.

On tap at le delirium café, Brussels. Hazy light yellow with almost no head. Candied granny smith, citrus. Sweet without bitterness. A refreshing apple soda.

rayaron (1058) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - JUL 23, 2015
Bottle sample, 3.6%. Hazy yellow with small off-white head. Sweetish aroma of apple and honey, notes of camomile and herbal tea. Extremely sweet flavor, notes of red apple, honey and herbal tea, very sugary, sticky finish. Soft carbonation, medium-bodied.

solidfunk (6480) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUL 22, 2015
Everybody burns this but it’s OK for a fruit beer. Pour hazy blonde with OK head and lacing. Some apple and hint of citrus. Sweet finish. Like sweet cider. Tap at Belga Cafe.

chris__hartley (357) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 30, 2015
It pours murky ochre; the head is off white and foamy. The aroma has notes of: apple candy, and bubblegum. The taste is heavy sweet; there are notes of: granny smith, pears, and cereal. The palate is light bodied and has medium carbonation; it has a short finish. Overall, it’s an inoffensive apple soda - no hate, just not that great.

jjsint (1803) - Stuntney, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2015
Bottle from JSG Wine Merchants, Hills Road, Cambridge. On sale for 50p, nabbed the last one. Hazy whitish gold pour. Nice aroma... apples and cinnamon with a doughy/yeasty hit. Taste starts off ok, quite sweet with an apple Sourz tinge, but there’s a slightly funky off note. A weird beverage, but it’s refreshing in the oppressive June heat.
