3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: $1.75 from Wine Warehouse, Charlottesville. Pours golden amber with a small white head. Smells of apple, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Tastes of apples and spices - lingering peppery finish. Tasty - not something I’d drink all the time. Tastes to me exactly like apple spice herbal tea.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle. BBD Aug. 15. Pours a medium, well retained white head, over an effervescent gold (SRM 5) body......nose is moderately heavy cinnamon, light apple, hints of wheat, no esters, no hops, balance to the cinnamon......taste is slightly sweet, with light apple, dominant cinnamon, finishing almost dry, no hops, balance to the cinnamon......mouth feel, light body, no alcohol, high carbonation. The underlying wheat beer is much too hidden by the simple spice. More wheat and apple presence would make this particular bottle better. Its strongest point is its appearance. BJCP 6/3/12/4/5

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a vibrant golden color with a small white head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was sweet cinnamon sugar and strong apple. The flavor was sweet cinnamon sugar and apple - very much like apple pie. Long finish. Moderately full bodied. Yummy!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From tap. Pours cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma is apples and cinnamon. Citrusy, zesty fruity apples. Light cinnamon dryness into the finish. Juicy apples.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Fantastic aroma of apples, can’t wait to taste
Appearance- Looks like a mix between apple juice and a lager. Has a small white head.
Taste- Completely disappointing. I actually feel cheated when I compare the aroma to the taste. You can taste cinnamon and maybe a hint of apple, but the beer flavor doesn’t appeal to me.
Palate- This is a light bodied beer with moderate carbonation. The finish is dry and crisp.
Overall - This does not even compare to Shipyard’s Pumpkin brew. I would not try this again nor recommend it to anyone unless they want to experiment with flavors

Ugh, over sweet and spicy, like McDonalds apple pie filling. It even looks bad in a glass. No good.

Poured a clear dark golden color without much of a head, maybe some wisps on it. Aroma was, a bit like an apple pie - mostly some cinnamon. Apples are there, a bit tart. Flavor was sweet apple pie, cinnamon.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle -
Found out that Trader Joe’s carries 6-packs of this and a few other unusual Shipyard beers. This one works really, really well and quite a tasty spring/summer beer. An aroma that can best be described as smelling like McDonalds hot apple-pie snacks is the best I can come up with. It smells really nice. Flavor is a nice blend of apples, light cinnamon with a touch of tannic pucker-ness. A pretty straight-forward fruit beer, with a strong flavor of apples. No noticeable flaws while at proper temps. A really nice beer.

"got a single just to see. if this type of beer is what you’re in the mood for, it’s actually quite good. if you’re not in the mood, still an ok beer. better than pumpkinhead. the mix of apple aroma and flavor, and spices cover up any shortcomings in this too light wheat beer. looks and has the feel of typical micro/macro hybrid...but the aroma and flavor are nice enough to almost win me over. not a high scorer, but one i may get again if singles are available."
