1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle from Masuyo in Asagaya. Drank straight from the bottle. Strong apple and sugar aroma. Apple and overly processed sugar flavor with a slight hint of honey. Sourness is evident but muted on the palate. Body is unbalanced and texture isn’t my cup of tea. Not a good beer.

A nice apple flavored beer one off the best I ever got, but not my kind off pie.

Un soda à la pomme, c’est franchement pas terrible. Certes c’est "moins pire" en plein été. Unique dégustation au bar La Tête à L’envers, Vincennes, France, le 29/04/2013.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Smell is tart, fresh apples. Pours a light, hazy pale yellow. Taste is tartness, followed by apple sweetness, and a slight lingering hint of caramel. Incredibly light body, very small (almost non-existent) carbonation. You’re better off finding a better apple beer (Lindemans Apple) or just getting cider instead. Not really worth your time.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a slightly cloudy pale straw (paler, actually - SRM 1? 0.5?) with one finger of white head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, spotty lacing. Nose is apple juice and sweet cider, faint pale malt and wheat. Taste is strongly sweet apple cider and moderate tart with a little doughy yeast. Very light body, moderate sustained carbonation, with an off-dry finish.
Wow... that’s really... something. What, I’m not sure, but I’m sure it’s something. Let’s face it, I knew this wasn’t going to be anything great before I even opened the bottle. And the first whiff of apple juice and sugar didn’t do much to allay those fears. I was further dismayed to see the ingredients list included “apple juice, sugar, flavours”. "Flavours," huh? Good to know… I guess, to be fair, it’s not actually bad. It’s just very sweet and very fake. You know those crappy hard ciders you find in every liquor store? Buy those instead. They’re no worse, but at least they’ll be cheaper.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Yamaya. Ripe fresh apple nose. Light hazy honey color, filmyh ead. Apples, some honey, touch of grain, finish is light and sweet. Thin body. Pretty sweet and light. Nice as a fruit drink ... but no thanks.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale yellow with soft white foam. Some cloudy sediment in bottle mixes well in the pour. Looks like summer, which sadly passed a week ago. Yeasty apple scent made me double check to see if I had a bottle of cider. Tastes like a sweet cider with a yeast/must back end and bitterish aftertaste which makes me think of an applebutter spread.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Successful apple beer based on witbier. Misty yellow robe, thin snow white head. Aroma dominated by apple juice and sweetened cider, vague maltiness and sourish wheatiness far away in the background; taste likewise, apple, apple juice, apple sauce, apple cider... Ascorbic acid too, making it taste more like lemonade than like beer. I have something against sweet and sugary fruit beers based on witbier and this may have been one of the causes of this depreciation.
