Very comlex aroma. Coriander isevident, but apples are upfront, along with soft malt, and hints of mint? Color is pure gold, with some hazed and a small white head. Flavor is apples, with some orange, and that mint character again. Extremely balanced throughout, fading into a mild cider character, along with some hops.

Cloudy yellow with a white head. Good apple aroma, that is kind of leesy, twangy, and cidery. Also getting a balance of caramel and bubblegum. Semi sweet flavor, a little light body - not flavorless but missing something. Finish has a little spice to it, maybe mint.

I was shocked that so much aroma had so little flavor as far as the apple is concerned. Very nice and crisp, spicy and easy to drink. I really enjoyed this.

Light brown color with a small head. Had apples in the aroma, which reminded me of a cider because of the color and smell. The taste of apple was faint however and not nearly as much as the aroma would have you believe.

Beloved Beer (278) - California, USA - AUG 18, 2003
Thick foamy head. Loads of bubbles. Almost champagne like in appearance. Great green apple aroma. A bit light on the palate. Not as strong as the aroma would suggest. Tastey stuff.

mribm (458) - Ocala, Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2003
Bottled. Poured with a thick soapy head and the body was a cloudy dark yellow. Once the head dissipated, it looked like a glass of day old urine (Please don't ask!) The only aromas I could discern were those of fresh apples. The taste was an overly carbonated, apple flavored drink. It wasn't a bad beer, but one was enough and I don't think I'll try this again.

Though I just don't like this, I can see how some do. My wife really digs it, but the apple flavors just taste phony and out of wack to me. Cloudy yellow, big white diminishing head. Powerful nose, quite sweet, of apples, green jolly ranchers, slightly tart and somewhat musty. Sweet, with a strong green apple flavor, but somehow artificial.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - AUG 14, 2003
Cloudy dark yellow color with a short-lived but thick head. Strong aroma of sour apple and yeast. Flavor was similar, very yeasty with the sour apples coming behind it. Tart finish. Pretty good, probably not so great to have more than one though.

(bottle, via mabdoney) I like the hot angelic looking chick on the label to start. Murky, dark yellow in color with a brief, coarse head. Yeast and sour apple candy in the aroma. I didnt get as much apple in the flavor as I expected until the finish, but it was there. A very interesting beer, I like the yeast and crisp sour apple combo it had going, maybe a bit too carbonated--definitely very refreshing and novel though.
