This is one unique tasting beer! Apple nose with hints of banana/bubble gum. Like a combination Heffe/Cider. Very tastey, but alittle on the thin-side. the finish is quick--a hint of citrus tang then it's gone...

Apple, banana, spice, and bubblegum in the aroma. Flavor is sweet and fruity, but with some underlying bready malt. Tart apple finish. Halfway between a beer and a hard cider, and definitely better than the low-end ciders. With that said, if I wanted an apple beverage out of Quebec I’d spend the extra $$$ and get an ice cider.

Cloudy yellow with white head that stays around for the duration. Green apple dominates nose and flavor. More complex fruit flavor as well. Sweet and slightly tart like wine or champaign. Waxy mouth feel light body. Good dessert beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Gold. Fizzy, apple cider aroma. Very bubbly. Smells sweet but also alcohol. Sour bite with bubbly spicy mouthfeel. Some waxy. like a cider. Not my style, but decent.

Pours clear straw yellow with a fat finger of frothy white head diminishing gradually to a thin cap and no lacing. Nose is green apple with a faint yeasty base, perhaps a hint of wheat and coriander. Taste is green apple and bready malt with a little citrus. Light body, moderate sustained carbonation, and a short, sweet, crisp finish. Light and refreshing, mildly tart and not too sweet. Cider comparisons are obvious but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. A good summer patio beer.

Pours a hazy orange with a huge white head. Aroma is strong apple, almost champagne-like. The taste is kind of like a sweet white ale up front and apple cider on the finish. I thought from the smell that this was going to be way to sweet, but the combination works. If you’re in the mood for a fruit beer, this is a good one.

Poured from bottle into tulip: Pours cloudy golden with a one finger head. Aroma of banana, coriander, apple. and sugar. Taste is much like a white ale up front with the wheat, lemon, banana, coriander coming through and finishes a bit like apple cider. Very interesting, tasty beer. Light body, a little sweet, nice!

Smells like Granny Smith so much! Gold color with less than a finger of head from tap. Very fruity but not distinctly apple. Also sweet. Tiny bit hoppy. Light on the palate

I’m not a white ale fan, but it came in the combo box of Unibroue beers I got, so had to try it. Yeast, apple (duh), banana. It seems more like a hard cider than a beer, but it doesn’t suck.
