3.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
While fruit beers are not my favorite, I do enjoy a really well done fruit beer and this falls into that catergory! First the aroma of this beer is unmistakable in that it green apple, green apple and perhaps a slight bit of green apple. Appearance was a cloudy yellow with bubbles zipping everywhere. Taste was not quite electric as the aroma, but it was still good with green apples, corriander, sweet malts and sweet but not cloying at all. I thought this was a really good example of how a fruit beer should be made!

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.

Bottle. Opaque, yeasty brown-gold. Green apple nose. Tastes more cidery than beer-- green apple, only notes of spices. A bit one note, though good.

A strong aroma of apple pie and vanilla with a hint of cranberry. Appears clear gold with a thin ring of white foam. Tastes of wheat, vanilla, apple and a hint of bitter hay. Palate is fizzy and mildly filling. Overall, nice.

Bottle from backlog notes 07/08. Pours a cloudy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have tart apples, sweet apples, yeast, light bready notes. Better than ciders I’ve had, but not something I would seek out again.

~Grainy wheaty aroma with strong yellow and sour green apple aroma. Earthy hops.
~Pours a cloudy golden color with long lasting fluffy white head.
~Extrememely well balanced myriad of flavors, Corriander, grain, banana, apple, spice.
~Light fluffy body with high prickly CO2, lingering grainy apple finish.
~Very well crafted beer. Seems a lot of thought went into this one. I don’t care much for the apple, but do respect this beer. Refreshing and interesting.
