Bottle @ home picked up at Wilburís Fort Collins. Pours a fairly cloudy yellow-orange appearance with an off white head. Aroma is incredibly potent and reeks of apple jolly ranchers, cinnamon, and tons of fruit sweetness. Flavor is kind of refreshing and I could see how sorority girls would love to get fucked up on this shit. Itís very sweet, taste of apple pulp, honey, pears, and light bread. Not sure Iíve ever had anything like this. Not my cup of tea, but I expect with some marketing, this could be a decent seller.

Bottle. Pours hazy golden with a fizzy white head. The head turns quickly into a small ring...if you can call it that. Aromas of apple, light cinnamon, and more apple. The flavor is light but blanced. Apple, apple, and more apple in here. Cider takes this "beer" to a really drinkable/slammable place. Nothing special here but not a drainpour

Loved this Beer! It has a sweet apple taste that is to die for. It is different from most beers with its lively fruitful taste with just a hint of Wheat. The Aroma is just as lovely as the taste.

12oz twist-off bottle. Yellow color, white fizz. Smells of green apple candy. Tastes of wheat with green apple extract. Tart flavor. I feel sorry for anyone who buys more than 6 of these... (3665)

dlihcsnatas (306) - Texas, USA - APR 9, 2013
Poured up a hazy goldish orange. Smells of apples as I would have expected and it made me kind of think this might be pretty good. I was wrong. The taste is just what this is, a apple cider mixed with a wheat brew. The two just donít seem to come together well. Glad I only purchased a sample bottle. Really donít want to drink any more of these.

Pours a hazy gold with lots of carbonation. Very strong sour/ granny smith apple aroma. Strong apple flavor with a hint of wheat. Very acidicy beer.

12 oz bottle says 5.2%. Poured into a Samuel Smith pint glass. A: Pours a hazy golden color. The head is a quick-fading two finger white shade. Not the most aesthetically pleasing brew. S: Is this beer, or is it cider? There are strong apple tones throughout, along with a bit of tartness and some diacetyl. Jolly Ranchers come instantly to mind here. The minor beer qualities here arenít too hot. T: This may well be cider, with its big sweetness and apple flavors, but thereís also some finishing diacetyl that I could do without. The malty finish tries to balance some of the cider sweetness...only it turns it into beery sweetness thatís a bit more unpleasant. None of the advertised spices come through well. M: Thick and sweet, as expected. Lots of carbonation, too. The problem here is that itís so damn sweet that it kills drinkability - and it canít get away with it the way a pure commercial cider like Angry Orchard can. O: I totally get this point of this product, combining a sweet apple cider with a generic witbier - the problem is it tries to be everything to everyone, and as a result, doesnít do either the cider or the beer aspect well enough to appeal to discerning craft beer/cider drinkers (plus the whole "itís made by AB-InBev" thing). Not bad for a malternative, though.

Finhead (1194) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - APR 3, 2013
Hazy, yellow-gold pour with a white head. The aroma is very fruity with the smell of freshly sliced apples dominating. It has a light body with a slightly sticky texture and lively carbonation. The taste is sweet and crisp, but with an obvious cider quality. This is an interesting brew and worth a try.

Butters (3789) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Holy shit... really wasnít prepared for that flavor... Pours a dull straw with fair offwhite head. Aroma is actually quite pleasant - perfumy sour apple. But the flavor just pushes the limit on what I can tolerate in a beer. This tastes EXACTLY like a green jolly rancher has been melted down and distilled. Sour and puckering but in a fake medicinal way. Maybe, under the perfect circumstances, I might be willing to drink more than a few sips.

Ughsmash (7157) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Bottled. Poured cloudy, straw golden with a well-retained white head. The aroma picked up lots of mostly sweet apples and not a whole lot else.. some earthy notes and wheat as well.. no real complaints. The flavor found tangy and sweet apples throughout, with a pale malt and wheaty base.. some watery apple juice on the middle.. finished with a little apple tang and prickly carbonation. Light-bodied with filling carbonation on the palate.. this lost its way on the middle, but was otherwise serviceable.
