Pretty salty aroma, very tart. Bright and cloudy, not too many bubbles. Upfront is face squishing tart apple. Followed by a salty, crisp, malt backbone. This may be my bridge to ciders, maybe.

Sevenlee (1271) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - MAR 19, 2014
Pours a hazy orange colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, plenty of apples, acidity with hints of wood. Taste is medium sweet leading to a fruity and acidic finish. Very good stuff!

I really liked this beer; very complex yet so well balanced. Hid the 12% really well, I can see why this is so highly ranked.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 1, 2013
A Ratebeer legend! Hazy blond. Bretty, lightly woody, good appley character. Earthy, a little slickness maybe from butter or pedio.

HopRedHead (341) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 1, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a golden amber with 2cm of fluffy, light tan head. Inconspicuous granny smith aroma veiled by a very sweet maltiness with barnyard/hay eccentricities. 12% ABV is cloaked by the malty sweetness, until the alcoholic apple sugariness presents itself in the aftertaste. Challenging and delightful. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

stoutnick (457) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 5, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2013 Aroma of tart and sour. Flavour even better - big load of the same, but quickly balanced by apple sweetness. Ends with return of soure flavours. Lingering apple fizzy tartness - a tasty, not objectionable sherbert. Beautiful.

maneliquor (3011) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 23, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2013 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Cloudy orange pour with a big fluffy white head. Nose is very funky, hay, granny smiths, tart, acidic citrus. Taste is full on tart and mouth puckering apples. Super tarty and funky, not for the faint hearted

Jade (407) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 19, 2012
Nice cloudy golden colour. Mysterious apple aroma. Tastes like golden delicious, several layers of complexity.Sour, warming aftertaste.

barakihunter (187) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 14, 2012
This beer has brilliant subtle apple aromas, with the both the sweetness and tartness of the apples making into the beer’s aroma. The appearence is a transparent golden yellow-orange hue with a touch of cloudyness from residual yeast and apple sediment. The taste is a appley sweet beginning followed by a more malty taste and moves to a good tart palate that complements the apple and malty balance. Overall, an absolutely delicious apple beer.

heygeebee (5) - - NOV 13, 2012 does not count
Pours dark golden, one finger head. Aromas are dry cider / apples in the main, and taste follows, with a bit of sour/apples/tart/funk entering. Overall, less complex than the high score suggests. Stupidly high ABV tho for a beer than drinks in a throw-down manner.
