UPDATED: MAR 20, 2012 Tasted at the 2012 St. Louis Centennial Beer Festival from bottle into sampler glass. Poured a predictable amber color with weak head but very aromatic. Smelled of apples and cinnamon, wheat bread, some fruity yeast esters and clove phenols. Nice fruity taste, more like a fruity wheat beer than a straight-up cider, welcome hops bitterness to off-set the sweetness. Unique and interesting.

Pours a clear pale orange with a fluffy white head. Aroma of apples, cinnamon, and brown sugar. Flavor of apples, sugar, and light cinnamon. Almost like an apple pie in a bottle. Very Drinkable.

Taste is very good, if not very beery. Wheat plus apples and cinnamon equals apple strudle. This would probably make an awesome beer float.

Tallahassee, Fl - Fermentation Market - 12 oz bottle. Pours a medium golden with a thin, quickly dissipating white head. Aroma reminds me of Apple Jax cereal. Flavor is sweet and and cinammony and very artificial. Tastes like spiced cider that has been sitting out too long and gotten cold. Mouthfeel has a pasty clinging effect. Not impressed.

Aroma is spicy cinnamon. Upfront flavor is spice, a hint of cooked apple, and a doughy note. Not extremely fruity or sour at all. Very different.

"subtle sweetness of cinnamon"?! more like clobbered over the head with it. just like Pumpkinhead, this beer is overpoweringly sweet, and i get no wheat beer flavor at all. i guess if you are into ciders, this would be a good crossover. otherwise, bleh.

Location/Date:Bottle on January 22nd, 2012.
Appearance: Pours a clear gold.
Aroma: Aroma is of light apple.
Taste: Taste is of faint apple and BLS malt.
Summary: Maybe my bottle was bad, but this beer was like a BLS light beer with some apple in it. I couldn’t drink more than a third of it. Was like a combination of a bad cider and coors light.

Had 3 of these while home brewing today. Very interesting don’t think I’ve had apple beer before. Tastes of tart granny smith apples, with cinnamon, grass, and some floral notes. Pretty refreshing
