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.

Bottle from unknown via Dan S. Pours a slightly hazy amber, nose redolent of fresh apples, some lacto notes. Body medium lively with a crisp and surprisingly bitter finish, relatively speaking. Damn fine.

Has a wonderful green apple and apple cider aroma. Taste is a mix of sweet and tart apples with a very light sour note. Medium but sharp soda like carbonation that’s a bit fizzy.

Decent beer, much less sweet than the crappy cider we get around here but still over sweet for my taste. Quite well done though, the flavor is authentic and the aroma is quite nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle courtesy of GT2. Pours hazy brownish golden (actually pretty much apple must coloured) with a very small fizzy offwhite head that quickly dissipates without leaving much trace on the glass. Smell is fruity and slightly malty with graham crackers, caramel, ripe apples, cinnamon, hay and lemon peal. Taste is tiny sweet, tiny sour, fruity and slightly malty with graham crackers, apple must, cinnamon, nutmeg, moist soil, orange zest and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is crisp, sparkling, slightly tart and light bodied. Finish is tiny sour and fruity with graham crackers, smashed red apples, minerals, hay, orange zest and lemon zest. Aggressive sparkling carbonation, low sweetness, suiting tartness and tons of apple fruitiness makes up for a great fruit beer experience.

Dark copper. Lively pour, thick foamy head. Smells like apples. Tastes like a sweet cider, but with a slight malt build. Incredibly easy to drink. Thanks Erin.

(Backlog) Bottle of fantasy tasting at Paul’s. Brown copper pour with tan head. Apple pie aromas, spice, light apple tartness. Flavors of apple, sweet tones, spice, tart fruit; almost cider like.

Golden orange in color... Aroma of fresh apple cider... Flavor is apple juice, cider, light acidity on finish... Hardly beer, but enjoyable
