BillWyce (751) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2011
From notes: Poured a hazy straw color with virtually no head. Crisp apple aroma with mild yeast underneath. Palate is slightly fizzy, but with some depth to it. Mild apple flavor at the tip of the tongue giving way to an earthy note. The crispness of the apple lingers nicely. Reminds me a bit of Unibrouwe’s Ephemere, but it’s less fizzy and the apple is less aggressive. The earthy note also separates it.

TATE (307) - Lubec, Maine, USA - AUG 23, 2011
Bottle from the French Cellar. Aroma is of bananas and orange. The beer pours a cloudy golden color with a thick white head and plenty of carbonation with tiny bubbles. The taste is astringent with some heat from the alcohol as well. Mouthfeel is creamy. The style is not my favorite thus the low overall rating.
