A clear plae golden color with lively carbonation producing a medium white frothy head. Aroma is very apple/pear. Slight citrus and spiciness also. Flavor is pear/apple exaclty as it smells. Med light tangy body.

Very strong apple aroma. Cloudy golden yellow with a big white head that recedes to a thick coating. Very refreshing apple flavour that doesn't completely obliterate the character of the beer. Tart finish. Nice smooth mouthfeel. Bottle.

Slightly lite cloudy golden appearance with almost a touch of green apple in the color. I say knowing that there are apples in this beer. Smells like apple cider. Mouthfeel is a little thin but maybe its suppose to be that way. Flavor is mostly apples. Has a champagne feel to it, not sure if it's a carbonation flaw? Not quite as complex as other Unibroue beers but not too bad.

lemonlovr (190) - Orland Park, Illinois, USA - OCT 13, 2003
Aroma dominated by apples and coriander. Appearance is murky and a very light, almost wheaty color. Flavor is not overbearing but is dominated by a sweet taste up front followed by a tart apple-esque flavor.

3fourths (9055) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 13, 2003
Murky light yellow with a foamy active white head. Sharp apple and citric acid aroma. Not very tart, which was suprising, but just an even sour apple candy flavor. Smooth and nice.

Nuffield (4033) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 12, 2003
When I opened this I had a hit of apple Jolly Rancher (brand-name candy) coming from the bottle but the aroma was more complex than that when in its more concentrated form in my glass--adding a Bubble-Yum (brand-name bubble gum) to it. Definitely pour the yeast from the bottle to the class, as it transforms the appearance to a nicely cloudy yellow to go with the moderate white yead. The flavor has something Kool-Aid (brand-name powdered drink) about it, as if it is overly candied, but there are realistic flavors as well. We'll just call this Ephemere (brand-name beer).

MaBeer1972 (1749) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 11, 2003
I finally found this one! Powerful aroma of Green Apples. Appearance is similar to Hoegaarden. Very foggy. The flavor is less apple than you'd expect from the aroma. Nice spicy edge too. Quite refreshing and enjoyable. Another quality product from Unibroue! (I like this much better than the cherry one they have).

the smell ruined it for me, cause it was better then the actual taste, still a good fruit beer with lots of bite, and sublte texture, the spices add dimesnsion to it and the color is a nice milky yellow, decent head with nice hints of apple, coreander and celery

inviting apple / cider nose, cloudy golden beer with minimal head with 'lil bubbles. crisp taste makes this a great summer brew.

wildchefbill (245) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2003
Very strong apple aroma. Pours cloudy gold with small white head. Has a fizzy mouthfeel with a sweet/tart apple/hop flavor. Very light and dry. Not much in the way of malt or yeast. The lightest from Uniboue that I have tasted. Not bad but too light and thin.
