COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A handcrafted treasure, the ultra-limited edition Private Reserve Belgian White, is crafted with a classic Belgian beer yeast. Cloudy, with a rich golden hue, it presents a delicate aroma and taste, with coriander and orange notes. It pares excellently with seafood fare, mixed greens or sharp cheeses. Join the select few who get an exclusive taste of the fruits of our labor.

Comes out of the tap a clear palest gold, almost clear like vodka, with a thick and fairly persistent snow-white head. Rich and fruity aroma does not just invite a taste, but demands it. Flavor is crisp, sweet, fruity, mainly apple with more than a hint of pear and a touch of banana, along with a little fruity sourness. It is rather sweet but not sickeningly so, almost like "soft" cider. Smooth, full-bodied texture has some good fizz. I know that I have to rate this a little differently from a beer, so I hope that I have done this tasty cider justice.

Incredibly mild and mellow cider taste, beer yeast esters blend, but really in the end isnít much more than fruit juice.

halfonit (1129) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 17, 2012
Pours a slightly cloudy light golden color. Aroma is pretty weak. Apples, yeast (barely) and a little wine. Flavor is similar. I must admit that this is actually one of the better ciders Iíve had. But then again I havenít had many.

Elwood (2960) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 13, 2012
Serving: Draft. An interesting mix of styles here. There is sort of an apply Belgian Wit nose to it. The flavor is a mix of Granny Smith apples, yeast, and orange peel. Perhaps a bit heavier on the palate than most ciders. Off dry finish. Interesting take but Iím not sure how I feel about it.

Fech (285) - Parsippany, New Jersey, USA - JUL 12, 2012
Very crisp and refreshing. Bubbly and tart with a nice golden flavor. Reminds me of the sparkling cider I used to have at new years.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle - free tasting at Bertís Better Beers in Hooksett, NH. Nice crisp apple taste accompanied by coriander, citrus, and yeast. Yummy.

Aroma is slightly mushy, tart apples and a hint of citrus. The flavor is green apples, citrus/fruit, a hint of spice and a mildly sweet finish.

unclemattie (4032) - Georgia, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Short 12oz bottle, light blue label. Pours hazy orange color, very thin white head. Aroma of fine cheese and juice. Tart apple flavor, some flavor of apple skin. It seems to missing the coriander that I was looking forward to finding. Amazing nose to this beer, I love that bleu scent along with juice. Overall, clean and refreshing. Tart, dry finish. (3380)

Bottle. Hazy gold with a short, fizzy white head. Apple notes with light spice and soft citrus in the aroma. Taste is tart apple, apple skins, light spice notes and sweet apple juice. Body is light-medium with a soft carbonation and mild stickiness. Ends with more light spices, apple juice, green apples, and apple skins.

daknole (8537) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 15, 2012
A hazy light yellow pour with a white head. Great aroma of yeast, spice, tangerine and lots of tart apples. Flavor is sweet and yeasty, just enough tartness to balance. Nice spice. Damn good!
