2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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, thereís 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.

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.

Everybody burns this but itís 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.

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, itís an inoffensive apple soda - no hate, just not that great.

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 thereís a slightly funky off note. A weird beverage, but itís refreshing in the oppressive June heat.

Pours a hazy pale golden color, topped with a soapy white head, soon dissaperaing. Nice sweet fruity aroma, apples naturally with some cider-like notes. Taste is sweet and fruity again with some apple sourness. Feels like an apple juice with something in the back. Pretty nice.
