Bottle from funkyaudio, thanks bro. This is beer?!? Aroma is that of apple juice and a tinge of Martinelli's Sparkling Cider. The low alcohol keeps a malty, yet true to sparkling cider flavor with an outstanding palate. Tangent... Do you know the face that girls make when they don't like beer and you just drank one? Well, maybe you don't beer nerds, but this is the antithesis of that. They should just rename this beer: "Preparation for the Big Date." I know names such as this are usually reserved for the Evil Twin, but I'm throwing Carey a bone here. Excellent beer!

One of the very best aromas of any beer Iíve ever had. Iím a fan of good ciders, but this smells better than any of those that Iíve had. Just tons of fresh apple. Good appearance, though, it could use a little more of a head. What is there is nice, though. Taste is full, lingering and delicious. I just love this beer.

Tart apple aroma with a hint if yeast. Cloudy gold with quickly dissipating white head. Tart apple with a sweet candy flavor. Really good.

From bottle poured a murcky copper color. Aroma of green apples. Carbonation is very high. Some taste of carmel along with candied sugard. Very nice beverage.

I actually enjoyed this quite a lot, especially the aroma, which kind of made the taste seem subtle in comparison. Lovely tasting tart apple aroma. Taste was also nice apple and a touch of tartness, but it kind of fades quickly. But the aroma and appearance are excellent.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2013 Pours a nice apple cider colour with white champagne-like head. Very pretty. All apples on the nose. Sweet apple, and apple pie aromas, no spices. Just pure apple goodness. All apple flavours. Tastes like sweet apple juice with alcohol. Excellent. Like champagne on the tongue. Just enough tart on the finish to keep it from being watery. You can taste the care this was made with. Awesome!

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear, dark gold with minimal head. Awesome apple aroma. Itís almost like a cider, but not nearly as cloying. Taste is fresh apple, sweet and tart. Not sugary apple juice. Medium bodied with a very very long finish. Overall, I really like this beer. Iím not usually a fan of fruity beer, but this one absolutely rocks.

Appearance is is a hazy deep orange color with a white head that is only about a 1/2 finger thick. Aroma hits you as soon as you pop cap off with mild tart apples. Once in the glass you smell fresh cut apples just as if you were making apple cidar. Taste hits you right away with nice tartness, then the apple flavor kicks in to mellow the tartness out. Has a dry finish bringing it all together. The mouthfeel is is light with a good amount of carbonation which really wakes up the taste buds. Easy to drink with the low ABV but after 2 I would think this would get to be a little sweet and tart.

Pours a reddish gold with a small white head mostly dissipating. Nose is of apples and spices. Nice and creamy on the palate, the taste is very much like a sparkling apple cider, somewhat sweet, refreshing, with a clean crisp finish. Perfect on a summer picnic or at a fall football game. Best alone but may be paired with a Waldorf salad.
