the beer poured a fizzy golden yellow with minimal head. the smell is of wheat and apples blasting your face. the taste is clean and dry. apple dominate the flavor but not to much. good carbonation.

Very refreshing, great for a sunny day! Low alcoholic content makes it good for people who don’t normally drink complex beers, although this one can reveal some interesting combinations on your palate.

rayaron (299) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - NOV 10, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer & Beyond, Tel Aviv. Hazy light yellowish with small white head. Heavy apple aroma, fruity, some apricot, yeasty, floral. Flavor of apple, sugary, some maltiness, notes of melon, wheat, orange peels, spicy, very sweet, light bitterness, candy-like, dry. Very fizzy, medium-bodied.

Bottle from ABC. Pours a beautiful hazy orange with a thin white head. Shards of fruit floating around. Wonderful fruity aroma of apples and oranges. Taste is extremely smooth and thin. Very sweet with a quick finish. One of the best fruit beers I've had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

matbigrey (63) - Mascouche, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 19, 2014
341ml bottle. pours hazy golden color very low head that evaporated quickly even if the effervescence was pretty high! the angular stone is the apple in this on. the aroma other than apples is more apples . taste is the forbidden fruit in 1st plan and then the great cereal backbone taste that I appreciate in fruity beers. very simple but very well done

slowrunner77 (6019) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 7, 2014
"aroma is pleasant of green apple and clove-like spices. more spices and less apple than expected in the taste, but the balance ends up quite nice. body is light and refreshing, perhaps a little too much carbonation. the thick white head atop the cloudy yellow body dissapates quickly. overall, a great summer refresher."

pumpkinhead2 (393) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2014
Bière jaune paille, bien voilée avec quelques particules en suspension visibles, effervescence soutenue, et col blanc pétillant qui se réduit tout de même assez rapidement pour ne laisser qu’un anneau autour du verre et quelques remous blanchâtre à la surface du liquide. Arôme dominant de pomme verte qui fait un peu artificiel, derrière lequel on peine quelque peu à déceler des effluves plus maltés de pain frais, grain, foin et léger miel. Nez agréable et bien intense, peu complexe cependant. En bouche, liquide très pétillant, mais sans aucune onctuosité au palais. Au goût, pomme verte évidemment dominante, avec ce malt en arrière-plan qui fait surtout pâtisserie rendu en bouche, et quelques subtils épices (cannelle?, poivre?, clou de girofle?...). Léger sucré fort agréable et savamment équilibré par quelques subtiles notes acides. Absolument aucune amertume. Le goût de ce breuvage est véritablement excellent, mais il faut avouer que ça fait davantage jus de pomme pétillant que bière. Intensité moyenne en bouche, complexité faible. Il s’agit définitivement d’un bon produit, très accessible, intéressant lorsqu’on désire quelque chose de léger et agréable.
