Wow. This was just incredibly tasty. Itís not for everyone, but the truth is this is a refreshing, change of pace, very well made fruit beer. A nice blend of Red Delicious and Granny Smith apples in the nose, along with a bit of orange peel and coriander and some sugary sweetness. Mouthfeel was thick, velvety smooth without amazingly being cloying. Flavor was bright, clean apples with a light wheat cracker backbone. The main thing about this beer is clearly the apple. In fact, along with NG Raspberry Tart/Belgian Red, this might just be my next favorite fruit beer. Amazingly refreshing and tasty. If you donít like sweet beers, stay far far away.

Me and my wife were impressed with this. Nice wheat-beer appearance, with one fantastic tsting head. Delicious (the apple type) flavor. Not too wheaty in taste, just a pleasant beer.

Presentation: 11.2 oz. brown bottle served in a stemless, oversized wine glass.
Appearance: Thin 1/2 finger head that fizzles out into a thin ring that stays ítill the end, and it leaves some great lacing. Itís a cloudy, bright yellow color.
Smell: It has a simple, very sweet and pleasant smell. A mix of malt with red and green apples.
Taste: The sweet and sour taste is great and something thatís not found in any other brew. The sour of the green apples dominate, but itís balanced nicely by a red apple and malt sweetness in the background.
Mouthfeel: Creamy and medium bodied with very little carbonation. Itís light and very easy to drink.
Overall: Despite the sweetness on the nose and palate, everything feels nicely balanced, surprisingly. This beer is not cloying at all and doesnít have that candy flavor that turns away a lot of people from these types of fruit beers. Itís great, very simple and refreshing. Proof that a good beer is not just about having a thousand flavors crammed into a bottle.

Excellent sour apple beer. Not too sweet, not too tart. A delightful melody that danced around my mouth and left when it was uninvited. Better than most apple beers or apple wines.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2007 This was labeled as Floris Apple WIt at Piperís Pub in Pittsburgh where I had this one on draft. It poured a cloudy pale yellow color with a small white head. There was a strong apple juice aroma. The flavor was sweet strong apple with a hint of banana and spice underlying. The finish was surprisingly dry given how sweet the front was. Pretty darn tasty.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2005 On tap at the Yard House in San Diego. Pale yellow and cloudy. White head with great lacing. Flowery apple cider sweet aroma. Chalky, extreme sweetness and tart. Bubble gum and medicine. Suggested flavor of Lemon Alka Seltzer cold medicine. Very tart finish. UPDATE: Now on tap at the Dundee Dell in Omaha. Apple aroma is so aromatic that a couple of pints of this stuff nearly masked the acrolein of all the cigarette smoke (I said nearly). I liked my second pint of this EVEN MORE!

Light golden with a thin but creamy white head that leaves sticky bits of lace. Huge green apple Jolly Rancher aroma which (if you like that kind of thing) is pretty awesome. Syrupy & smooth with a honeyish consistency. Sweet & tart apple flavors are intense and retain a candied quality, while the aftermath results in noticable acidity with a touch of astringence. In all, think: "Mead & Cider Hybrid".

Sweet apple and citrus flavors.A very good sweet beer. It is low in the alcohol so if you just feel like having one beer, it is a good one to have.
