The aroma is striking. Think apple jolly ranchers; yes that is it. Wonderfully sweet/sour/crisp with the classic clean Unibroue aftertaste. Strikingly blonde, with almost a green tint (I know it is apple juice!). The aftertaste carries the seville oranges and coriander.

Bottle. It poured a straw gold color with a big frothy white head that quickly dissipated to a nice rention covering. Green apple aroma with some sense of artificial candy flavoring. It has a dry finish but not sweet like cider.

I am not normally a fan of friut beers but this was pretty darn good. First off, the aroma was of green apples, so much so it reminded of apple jolly ranchers. Although it was nice it borders on artificial. The body was a deep, murky hazy yellow, with a light brown tinge, a mid sized head with plenty of carbonation. The flavors of wheat and hints of spice and coriander, the apples show up in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel was a little light but it was well balanced. Originally rated on 11/11/08.

I’m not usually a fruit beer guy but this beer was done right. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Aroma is ganny smith apples and honey. Great balance of wheat and apple. Really enjoyed this beer.

bottle. Pours hazy golden with fizzy head. Yeast, spices, and granny smith apple are all prominent. Bubbly. Interesting and refreshing.

cattaneopapa (303) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2016
341ml bottle. Pours a deep golden colour with half of finger lasting head. No lacing. Aromas of apples, honey, and a hint of bananas. High carbonation takes over in the beginning which leads to a fruity finish. Mildly spicy aftertaste. Recommended.

DeliriumT (491) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 12, 2016
Pours darker than your standard white ale. Aroma of apple pie, bread, clove. Flavour is a nice balance of beautiful soft wheat beer flavours with a bite of apple. Nice quaffer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pleasant apple aroma. The body is a hazy yellow amber with soda bubbly head that thins quickly. Has sweet tart apple taste with a hint of maltiness. Has a apple cider like dry finish. As close to an apple beer without being a cider as I’ve tasted.

Pours a burnt orange color with lots of sediment and a white head. Coriander, wheat and apple aroma. Coriander, apple juice, wheat, and light spice flavors. Light body and lively carbonation. Coriander and apple finish. Tons or coriander and the apple taste a bit artificial. Bottle from at least a year ago.

Part of the Unibroue Semoliers Pack Smells very potently of apples over a Belgian Dubble. Pours a light gold colour. Head disappears quickly. Taste is that of a Belgian Dubble, with a hint of apple, Not overpowering. Good amount of carbonation. No aftertaste. I had left this beer for last as I wasn’t too sure on an apple beer. But I was pleasantly surprised. I wouldn’t buy a 6 pack, but if it was park of the Mixer pack again, I wouldn’t turn it down.
