COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bonita Applebum is made with cinnamon, vanilla, and apples. The aroma features wave after wave of cinnamon and vanilla, and bottoms out on the back end with a copious dose of real apples. Full, round, and beautiful - thats Bonita!

Oakes (13594) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 16, 2015
Medium brown, aroma is spicy like a bit of cinnamon and pepper, vanilla too I swear. That character is assertive, with a little hit of apple...more like a breakfast cereal than beer. The brown ale simply does not come out enough. No balance.

Draught @ CBC 2014 [ Yellow Session ]. - Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014, Sparta Hallen, Gunnar Nu Hansens Plads 11, 2100 Copenhagen, Denmark

[ As Funky Buddha Bonita Applebum ].
Murky matt medium brown color. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, cinnamon, apple - BBQ apple ala Ulfborg - German apfelstrudel. Flavour is heavy sweet with a long duration, big time cinnamon, apple - BBQ apple ala Ulfborg - German apfelstrudel. Body is medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft. I like German apfelstrudel - so I like this beer also ;D [20140502]
