On draft at the HI. Pours a deep honey caramel amber with a medium sized off white head. Beautiful aroma of apple cinnamon strudel, warm apple crumb pie and a hint of nutmeg. Taste is dominated by apple cinnamon delight. Excellent stuff.

Bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. Pours with a tan head over a hazed brown hued body. Aromas are sweet, cereal, apple, brown sugar, nutty, cinnamon and nutmeg. Very pie like. Not cloying or too heavy. Flavors are nutty, graham crackers, apple, cinnamon, nutty, caramel, nutmeg. Very nice flavors. Like a light version of a Rocky Mountain Brewing Co beer. Medium bubbles, not too oppressive on the finish. Good!

Bottled shared at bu11zeye’s 10,000th rating tasting. Thanks to ericandersnavy for sharing. The beer pours a brown color with a tan head. The aroma is awesome, with a ton of cinnamon and apples. The flavor is also great but is more complex. I get a lot of apple and cinnamon, as well as some oak, vanilla and rum notes. There is also some nice alcohol flavor as well as a good bit of sweetness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice.

Draft back in August of last year with Hopscotch at the Buddha. Ryan was nice enough to pour a sample glass for Eric, Laura, and myself before it was officially released. Hazy brown pour with a nice tan head. The aromas is straight up apple pie with a buttery sweet crust. All kinds of sweet baked apples, cinnamon, brown sugar, caramel malt, and a hint of the buttery crust that Eric keeps pointing out. Just another deliciously diabolical concoction from the mad geniuses at the Funky Buddha. Kudos Ryan and Kevin......

Bottle from ericandersnavy. Murky brown pour with a big tan head. This whole thing is just tons of cinnamon, apples, sweetness, and baking spice.

Fantastic. Was really surprised by this one. Not a big fan of fruit beer, but this was terrific. Huge! cinnamon apple raisin nose. Flavor like drinking an apple pie with extra caramel and cinnamon, very bready. Awesome awesome beer! Too bad Funky Buddha doesn’t do growlers. If you have not been to FB brewery/lounge and you live in Florida, you should definitely go. Relaxing chill place with some great unique beer.

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this beer. I am not a fan of Apple in my drinks, but this beer certainly made me re-evaluate my taste. The nose is gorgeous, it captures the intoxicating scent of Apple Pie. It opens with Apple on the front, but blossoms to cinnamon and carmel as it comes to its finish. The balance of this is remarkable, and despite my initial thoughts that this would be a heavy thick drinking beer, it was medium bodied with complexity that kept manifesting throughout the offering.
