I would compare this one very much to an apple tart. This would go nicely as a dessert beer. It is just right, not too sweet with just the right amount of apple in the nose, the mouth and the aftertaste. Extremely hazy with a creamy, frizzy head, in the appearance looks like a witbier. Very balanced and extremely tasty.

This is an excellent Summer beer. Apples dominate the nose and the taste but do not completely overwhelm. Still a fine belgian style beer with subtle malty sweetnes to balance the acidity of the apples. Very refreshing

Easy to drink. Looks like it's going to be a big Belgian wheat ... cloudy golden brew with a thick frothy head ... what I usually call a lemon meringue pie beer because of its appearance. Taste of bread and sweet spice (coriander?) like a Golden Monkey or a Belgian but much less alcohol. Next feeling is that it's a big Belgian that was cut with some Vermont hard cider, making it a thirst quenching, relatively low alcohol (for a Belgian) summer beer. Really quite pleasant. Champagne analogy is not off base ... it has the mouth feel of a bubbly Champagne rather than a beer.

I really enjoyed this beer. It poured out to a chalky, cloudy, golden color in the glass. The aroma is excellent. Light apple and other fruit. The taste was quite good. The apple is done just right, not overbearing at all and combined with the spices made for a nice, summertime-style, treat. This beer actually reminded me of drinking champagne. Definetely worth a try. I'll be revisiting it before summer is over.

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.
