341ml bottle. I usually don’t like fruit beer and I never had a single apple beer I really liked. Except this one. Everything seems delicate in here. Distinct and pleasant notes of green apples submerges all other flavors. It’s not sweet, it’s not spicy, it’s not hoppy, it barely seems alchoolized, but it was much better than I remembered. Some notes of bread and some slightly acidic notes come along in the taste. The aftertaste could have more hop punch but this is a Unibroue beer... Probably my favorite from them among all their low-abv brews.

baraciisch (2132) - California, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Fruity aroma of apples with hints of Belgian yeast characteristic of a blonde... Golden in color with thick foamy white head... Almost a cidery flavor with an unbelievable sweet palate like cherries that lingers on the palate.. Don’t know if I would consider this a beer but an interesting beverage nonetheless...

KapitiCritique (367) - Xincheng, Henan Province, CHINA - FEB 17, 2015
Full fruity taste and spicy apple nose, balanced sour and semi-dry, medium body, spritzy, nice head, good lacing, nice honey gold and slightly murky. Excellent winter beer with a hearty meal.

Draft. Kind of a bizarre cross between an apple cider and a wheat beer. Dry, crisp and drinkable but sort of an odd combo.

Sparkly apple beer with the signature Unibroue yeast, lightly spicy and quite vibrant. Not my kind of thing but good for what it is.

Beardbeerman (194) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 8, 2015
Pours a cloudy straw topped bya finger of bright white head showing good retention and offering some lacing. The nose is dominated by green apples and yeasts. The taste is sharp and acidic with the apples at the forefront but the yeasts bring a nice spice to the blend. Medium body and dry acidic finish, this brew comes out as light and refreshing. Cheers!

deepeary (226) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 7, 2015
Bottle from LCBO. Hazy yellow with white head. Nose is sweet Granny Smith apple, some spice. Taste is crisp, fruity, yeasty, the apple is not overpowering and tastes natural. Some banana and wheat beer flavours. Slightly bitter apple finish. Refreshing, excellent lunch beer.

SotallyTober (72) - Channahon, Illinois, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Has a golden pour with big off white head that faded quick. There’s a green apple, wheat, and yeast aroma. Light body that was slick on the palate with a slight tart finish. Flavor was a little dull, and not as lively as expected. Not bad overall.

Unfiltered, straw yellow colour, with a thick active white head that settles to a thin film. Apples are immediately up in the nose as soon as uncorked. Fresh wheat also in the aromas. Thin mouth feel. Tastes are apples, cider and Belgian yeast. A pretty forgettable fruit oriented beer.

For a fruit beer this actually pretty decent, but fruit beers rarely blow me away. Worth a try.

Arômes de levures Unibroue typiques. Un peu épicé, bananes et sucre. Le goût de pomme se dévoile en bouche par ses effluves acidulés. Le tout est plutôt doux et sucré et les aromes de bananes persistent sur la langue. Reste tout de même une très bonne bière aux fruits, tout en gardant le côté bien malté de la bière.
