12 oz. bottle via trade with tytoanderso - Pours a clear golden color with a medium size off white head. Light lacing. Aroma is a soapy, faint apple. Flavor is light apple, very light grain, and light herbal hops. Light to medium body. Worth a try. Thanks Tyler.

12oz, no date. Clear orange with a one finger off-white head. Light apple juice and light grain make up the aroma, along with some light biscuity malts. Much more apple cider in the flavor, though, now that I think about it, there is almost a Froot Loops quality to both the flavor and aroma. Light body with a moderate smooth carbonation. I wanted to like this, but nothing came together

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Slight hazy copper. Sweet, caramel, apple in the aroma. Watery body. Flavor is light beer, heavier cider. Sweet, apple, light caramel in the flavor with a bit of malt. I’ve homebrewed a cider/beer hybrid before and was excited for this. Did not meet my expectations.

Nice brandy like appearance. The nose unfortunately was that of a hair salon. Grainy body with a sour, faintly apple finish.

Thin white head of medium sized bubbles. Good carbonation. Dusty apple cider aroma with some dry wheat and vanilla. Some spices as the brew warms. Amber in color. Tart apples, more vanilla and spices in the flavor. Some gritty and grainy notes. Finishes a little bit dry and tart. I like these apple ales.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a pale, peach-gold with a tall, creamy eggshell head that has great retention and leaves very nice lacing. Aroma is apple juice, cereal grain, toasty malt, buttery toffee, toasted nuts, light vegetal notes and some woody notes. Flavor is tart apple, toasty grain, bready yeast, overripe apple, light mineral notes and young cider sourness (malic acid?), a touch of citrus hops and hay. Palate is light bodied, fairly dry throughout and has a huge, blanketing, slightly sharp carbonation, which compliments the apple side of things well. I liked this stuff well enough, but the flavors and aromas don’t blend as well as they could have, the tartness with the slightly buttery notes really don’t work that well for me. It does look really nice and the palate is very good with the apple components it just doesn’t fit well with the buttery beer notes.

Cloudy amber. Nose is caramel covered tart apple and sherry. Flavor is bitter, tart apple with wet malt. Bitter apple skin finish. Just not good.

This is certainly a really good fruit beer. Great aroma of apple and a huge head with alot of fizy carbonation in a hazy orange beer. I like the way this brewery infuses different flavors in their beers.
