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.

If you like sour apple jolly ranchers then this is a beer for you. I honestly think it is the worst beer iíve ever had.

Bottle pour. Cloudy golden with a clear white head. Sweet apple aroma. Light smooth body. Very light bitter, but mostly sweet with a decent lasting finish.

Bottle on July 2, 2015. Thanks to the Garcia Sisters and Miss Riddick!
Hazy golden color, white head. Apple, sweet scent. Malty, sweet, light apple taste. Apple aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, low to no bitterness.

Chalumeaux (433) - Methuen, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 27, 2015
Poured from bottle hazy golden color with a thin white head. Aromas of jolly rancher green apple. Taste is sweet but not cloying. Would be refreshing on a hot day.

Itís sweet, but itís good. The taste of apple is pretty overwhelming.. itís got some bitter fizz at the end, but itís a great summer beer.

I think this is a great beer for when you want something not bitter and refreshing. Very clean tasting with no bitter aftertaste. Medium sweetness, lightly bitter, average carbonation, light body,

[ Bottle ][ 12oz ][ Tasting ][ Tasting ][ Teku ][ 3.27.15 ]
>> Hazy straw pour, okay foam. Green apple Jolly Rancher nose all the way. Taste is green apple Jolly Rancher, mild tartness, spice, medium sugar. Drinkable, but kidsí candy forward, more a novelty for those that probably arenít into beer.

355ml twist off. Hazed gold pour, brewed with cider with honeycrsip apple flavor added? Wtf. Smells like apple candy. Falvor is sweet apple, some rotten apple character, bittersweetness, soapy. Not a good example.
