12 ounce bottle brought to me from Wisconsin by a friend. Thanks Jenny! Pours a clear light orange color with a medium head. Good head retention that does not leave much lacing. Aroma is strong, tart apple cider. Subtle graininess is there if you look for it, but the apples do dominate. Flavor is apple cider with a tart champagne like finish and some spices. Full bodied and very smooth with lively carbonation. This is very nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle, sent from FullObs (thanks Brett), pours a hazy copper / bronze with a small white head. Aroma of green apples that pretty much dominate, with a bit of candied sugar sweetness. Flavour reminds me more of an apple cider, with fresh green apples and a bit of sweetness - well-balanced. No hint of the wheat or brown ale qualities. Solid flavour profile for being < 4%, but the whole thing feels a bit whimsical, especially compared to Raspberry Tart and Wisconsin Red. Nevertheless, solid refreshing light fruit beer.

Bottled: Orange colour. Clear. Apple, sweetness, stearin in the aroma. Flaovur is very sweet and cloying. Obvious apple flavour, thats a bit too much for my likings. Ends on a very sweet note. Thanks Jeppe for sharing.

Bottle from noncaloric. Thanks so much. Pours a nice golden color with a quickly disappearing white head. Aroma is crisp and clean and apples apples and more apples. Flavor is a shocker APPLES. Tart and sweet with one thing that differentiates this from ciders it actually finishes with the slightest beer flavor. A wonderful change of pace and my wife will be very happy.
