Clear, golden amber color, off-white head. Musty aroma of apple, dough, and bread malt. A nice blend of tart and sweet flavors. Lively and crisp, very light in body, and a clean finish.

Outstanding apple ale. Juicy apples dominate the aroma and the sharp, snappy finish, yet in between is the sweetness of the wheat and full body of the brown ale -- very different and welcomed in a fruit beer. Enjoyed from an October 2014 bottle (still great after nine months in the beer fridge).

Deliciously crisp beer. Pour caramel with amber highlights. Aroma is pure apple, delicately balanced with sweet brown sugar and toffee notes to cut the acidity, lending a certain degree of roundness to the nose after a sharp beginning. Flavor finds a similar balance between the tangy tartness of apple and drinkability of a session beer, with tart apple at the forefront, seemlessly giving way to a smooth and sweet brown ale.

What a nice fruit beer! Great aroma of fresh apple juice. Has elements of both sweet and sour apple. Slick body, with the apple being upfront and a little bit of malt peeking through. Finishes on the tart side, making this very easy to drink. Would make a great summer/dessert beer.

Bottle (thanks much noncaloric). Pours a clear lightish copper with a small white head. Aroma is, yes, you guessed it, apple. Lots and lots of apple. Some slight floral notes as well. Flavor is apple...more specifically apple cider. Sweet but with a dose of tartness. Just like a good apple should be. Quite a tasty treat. The wife REALLY liked this one, but found it hard to believe it is actually beer.

Transparent copper color with a thin foamy head. Basicly a malty cider with high carbonation and a bit of a yeast flavor in the finish.

Bottle pours a gold white head smells and tastes very strong apple. Pretty much tasted like apple juice and that’s bout it. Very nice smell and taste though fresh.

12 oz. bottle, courtesy of Skyview. Pours a clear gold color. Thin, bubbly white head. Aroma of apples and cinnamon. Initial bit of apple sweetness with tons of sugar, but this gives way to a nice malty touch. Finish is surprisingly clean. Very interesting beer.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, pours a bubbly, clear gold body with white head. Aroma of fresh picked apples and apple juice/cider. Flavor is similar, although almost candy-like, reminiscent of Jolly Rancher sour apple candy. Slightly tart near the finish. A little sticky and syrupy on the palate. This is okay, but nothing remarkable.
