2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
A cider like light orange pour. Has an apple aroma. Taste is mostly apple, but has a nice cinnamon and oaky flavor that gives it some body.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance had a slight golden yellow colored body with a small white head that lasts barely three seconds.
The smell had Granny Smith apples, cinnamon with a light wheat.
The taste took the previously mentioned flavors combine with some malts to make a decent combination.
On the palate, it sat about a light, sessionable, crisp, light harshness on the tongue, apple aftertaste and finish.
Overall, this is the apple version of Shipyard’s "Pumpkinhead." Even though it is a bit like an "apple pie," it is easy to drink.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle from Drum Hill Liquor, Chelmsford, MA. A cidery amber pour with a ring of white head; aroma of apple and cinnamon; the cinnamon dominates the taste - I’m not usually a big fan, but this kind of grew on me; the finish is dry and cidery with more cinnamon. I assume there is some wheat ale in there somewhere, but it’s not very apparent.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
12oz bottle. It pours nice, looks nice, keeps a decent head........but I detected no apple on the nose and even less in the taste. There is a small bit of cinnamon though. Not a bad wheat beer, apple? Nah.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, screw-top. Nose is wheaten with yuletide cinnamon/gingerbread and fruitcake spicing, apple. Pours clear golden with a soapy beige head. Ginger and cinnamon sprinkled onto applecake in the mouth, a nice touch of cider, crisp and dry with a medium-full body and a bit of a bready finish. This really is a holiday ale to me, very seasonal, harvest fading into winter, but I like the blend and there’s enough balance (in combination with cloy-aversion) to make me want to know back a few. Well done!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a lager looking deep cider color with a weird backbone and after taste that makes it more of a strange spiced beer then a fruit one/..interesting

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Terrible. Wheat, cinnamon, apple. Not what I am looking for when I want a beer. The cinnamon comes on strong at the end.
