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.

Holy shit... really wasn’t 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.

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.

Pours hazy golden into the glass, with a fizzy head that leaves no real retention and mild spotty lacing. The nose is of apple cider. Flavors are of cider, some very reserved wheat traces, a little spice toward the apple pie finish. The mouthfeel is seltzery and the body medium-thin with overactive carbonation. It’s certainly the macro take on a hard style to get right in the first place, but it serves its purpose and provides a novelty that even I might enjoy from time to time. Too much might be a tad cloying; thankfully, a little goes a long way.

Bottle. Poured hazy amber hue with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate sweet apple spice aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium smooth sweet spice flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

NeoHippie2 (1058) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Eh, this was ok but I got the feeling that this was a lot more artificial flavoring than anything else. Smells like apple flavored candy. Pours a hazy amber. Flavor is pretty much fake apple flavoring with some carbonation. One dementional and overly simple. Could’ve been so much better.

Gription79 (2296) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Smells like candy, apple Jolly Rancher. The flavor wheat/doughy, apple, hints of spicing. I am surprises by the balance of the apple, spices, and wheat. Not going to search out another one, but it was not terrible.

PhillyBeer2112 (2534) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Smells like a fresh apple, tastes almost like one. Very fall like with an apple cider character to do with an otherwise light wheat beer base. Very cloudy yellow color, modest head.

Pours a cloudy bronze with a thick white head that leaves much streak lacing. Nose is overwhelmingly apple. Palate is crisp with no malt detected.

Patrickctenchi (3969) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Pours murky, citrus-gold with a thin white head. Aroma is strong apple (a few feet away strong) Taste is certainly a good imitation of real apple-ness. Not beer-like at all, but...I hate to admit.....pretty tasty for what it is. More of a carbonated-cider-soda thing.
