Marko (4263) - 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, 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.

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.

jjsint (1333) - Ely, 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 thereís a slightly funky off note. A weird beverage, but itís refreshing in the oppressive June heat.

(bottle) hazy golden colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of apple juice and bubble gum, rather perfumed, with a light hint of pale malts and pears. flavour is mostly caramel, bubble gum and soap, quite sweet, with lots of mango, some tobacco and pissoir cubes. medium-bodied with soft carbonation.

MarkoNm (1291) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - APR 6, 2015
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.

gyllenbock (5728) - 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 (533) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Itís 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.
