1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours a bright, fizzy gold with an ample, meringue-like head that leaves a ton of sticky lacing. Aroma is sour honey with some slight fruity notes - definitely cluing you in thsat this is going to be different. The first hit is SOUR, with a lingering sour aftertaste. Very fizzy and crisp mouthfeel. For those expecting a beer, this is almost like beer-flavored cider. But relax, it’s gluten-free, and that poses unfair expectations when judging this stuff. Not my favorite, but you can bet I’d get a taste for it if I couldn’t drink beer.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Pours a crystal clear straw gold body with a very short lived fizzy white head. The nose is pretty poor, it actually smells more like a cider than a beer. Light honey and a little hint of graininess. The flavor is pretty rough as well. A light cider-like almost sour twang to this throughout, it finishes with a little apple skin like fruitiness and some vegetal notes. Super light bodied and thin with too much fizzy prickly carbonation. This is pretty far off from what I’d want to drink if I were forced to give up beer.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Stolen from my dear roommate: Pours loudly fizzy in the palest yellow. Aroma is kind of like cheap champagne or non-alcoholic sparkling cider or something along those lines. Taste is slightly sweet, but mostly bad. Tastes like a weird, really cheap champagne/cider hybrid. Ugh.

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bottle @ MJ’s house. Clear golden pour with pretty much no head. Smells like apples/apple cider, boiled cardboard and onions, garlic, and a weird grainy aroma. Just not pleasant. Spicy Belgium yeast flavor. Cardboard, onions, and sweet apple cider. Very vegetal, water, and green apple finish. Twangy. Blech.

0.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle @ MJ’s place. Pours a light yellow appearance with a tiny white head. Bizarre papery, lemon, apple, weird corny, disgusting aroma. Tangy apple, cleanser, tart, papery flavor. Would not drink again.

0.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2013 Quick pour yields a head like seltzer water which then instantly falls flat into a no-head apple juice yellowish-orange clear body. Actually smells like crummy apple cider pop. Huge bubbly texture with a HORRIBLE sourish corn syrup flavor. Sticks everywhere. Won’t go away. And it keeps effervescing to no end, it’s like having an alka seltzer tablet dissolve in your mouth and you think for a second that your mouth is going to fill and explode and spit out. And spit it out you should.

Bottle. Clear light golden pour with a small white head. Smells like plastic and trash. Taste is no better. Awful.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
From a bottle, big bubbles head. Lots of visible carbonation. Somewhat plastic volatile aroma, good whiff, knocks my head back.. Stronger bandade taste, yes, plasticity carries over to the flavor, too. Good co2 but this is almost as rude as my homemade apple cider. Maybe equally offensive. Somethings sticking out in this brew. Quite pointed. Not impressed. Seems like much more than 5%.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
8/5/13. Bought for Shannon and brought to the poconos. Gluten free beer. If I ever asked for a beer that tasted chi tea, I'd expect this one. Couldn't imagine drinking more then 1. Vanilla, honey, spices, reading other reviews people spoke of lemon taste, I don't recall that however I'm not gonna buy another one to find that taste
