3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle served in a Duvel Green tulip.
A: Pours a solid amber color with a one finger height of white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin collar.
S: Green sour apple jolly ranchers are big on the nose. There is a sold malt undertone to it with some red apple sweetness.
T: A touch of jolly rancher up front, but it quickly gives way to a nice, bright red apple flesh with just a smidgen of raw apple skin. The finish is slightly mealy like an apple core that’s been set out exposed to the air too long, but not in a bad way. The malt base gives it a touch of sweetness and a little heft to the body.
M: Medium to light bodied with a nice medium high carbonation level. The finish is malty and sweet.
O: I’m glad the base brown ale malts still have some say in the taste and it doesn’t come off as a cider. A nicely put together beer with the main focus being the apples. Definitely a nice fall treat.

Drank from bottle while freezing ass in Lake Placid NY. aroma is strong apples and sweetness. Actually get a lot of strawberry esters, interesting. Taste is sweet, apples and more strawberries. Maybe my brain is wired wrong... Decent fruit beer, but too sweet for me.

A spare head with spare lacing. Pours an amber color. Aromas of orange peel, bubble gum, and lots of fruit (apple, pear, peach, and cherry). Pure bliss from an aroma standpoint (yes, I like fruit beers). Definite fruit bouquet, in an AWESOME beer.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A clear copper pour. This aroma is confounding, with a blending of gorgeous tart apple character and buttery, toffee malts that are persistently candy-like and cloying; this can reach the level of butterscotch schnapps or caramel coated green apple. This issue is cast aside in the brilliantly textured flavor, which offers a pure, tantalizing apple flavor unsullied by extra sugars or weird off colors. Moments of brown sugar, caramelized pear, and caramel can be perceived, all within the wide spectrum of the apple flavor.
Mildly syrupy but always returning to crisp and drinkable, as is standard; juice box finish.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a glowing copper color with with a half finger of gaseous bubbles that fizzle out quickly. Nose is apple, pure soft sweet apple flesh with a hint of earthy must. Palate is softly carbonated with sweet apple notes that are layered with hints of cinnamon and applesauce with a lingering tannin to help clean up the sweetness on the finish.
