Bottle: Straw colored, clear, thing white head that falls quickly, spotty lacing, mild carbonation.   Sweet candyish apple, a touch Jolly Rancher.   A bit more tart on the tongue than expected, quite nice actually, very flavorful, smooth, but not as sweet as suggested by the nose (thankfully).   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Candied apple finish.   This is beer?   It had the right amount of tartness to balance the sweetness.   I really really enjoyed this one.   Thanks mattbob for sharing!

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2006
Good snow white head on a hazy golden body. Unripe apple aroma, fresh and natural with a sour edge. Flavor is sweet when it hits the tongue with a sourish note hitting in. Apple candy and lemon. Fresh and sparkling. Better than expected.

Bottled. Hazy light yellow with minor white head. glacings. It’s got an aroma of sweet apples remainds me of "apple essence". It has a very pleasant tast. althoug it’s a bit on the sweet side.

Looks nice. A bit like apple juice but hazy. Not much head. Smells like apple juice for sure. Tastes pretty much what you would ecpect it to. Sweet. I prefer Cassis, Framboise or Faro over this.

Sampled at Oakes’ ’05 Xmas Party
Golden color, cloying Jolly Rancher ™ (Green Apple) nose. The flavor is similar but you can actually taste and cringe at the sweetness now, not just imagine it. Fizzy green apple mouth feel. Nice but not what I want in a beer, there’s plenty of malt beverages that have similar flavors.

Bottled. Pale hazy golden colour, mediumsized white foamy head, lacing. Apple juice in aroma, with both sweetness and sourness present. Flavour is also the same. Kind of refreshing, but one surely is enough...

JoeMcPhee (8314) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 4, 2005
Pale golden beer, very sweet, tart apple aroma. Smells and tastes like a green apple jolly rancher. Loads of tart malic acidity. Very sweet and candyish. Not a fan.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 4, 2005
Apple-flavoured chewing gum...Joris hit the nail on the head. Pale colour, big candyish apple aroma. Very sweet, lots of green apple taste. Only a hint of tartness. Very simple confection that didn’t really work for me.

Hazy orange colour. Small white head. Very intense apple aroma. Lots of apple taste aswell, but also a very sweet taste. Has some hint of sourness in the aftertaste.

JorisPPattyn (7807) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 25, 2005
Hazy orange-ochre colour; dense dirty-yellow head, rather stable leaving rings of lace. Overwhelming apple ester, already from decorking the bottle, going over in typical old-style sweet apple juice. Very slowly, the smell of Brett and wooden pipes emerges. Terrible start, but ending much better. Sweet applejuice with a tart background. Apple flavoured chewing gum. There is some sourness, but difficult to say whether it’s lactic or malonic. Not really unpleasant flavours, but unsatisfying, considering what real (crab)apples on lambic might be. Cloyingly sweet in the mouth, medium-dry retronasal, unbalanced. Better than feared, which makes it even more a shame. Dirk, this could be SO-O much better, if you want it.
