[Growler] shared by skyview. Pours a hazy gold with a soapy beige head. Aroma and flavor are of marshmallow, spices, apple, caramel, and a little bit of butter. badgerben (5281) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 15, 2008
Copper color with no head. Caramel malt and apple aroma. Very sweet grain taste and a bit of caramel to back it up. Almost no apple taste. JK (6249) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 14, 2008
Bob, I assume this is what you served to me as "Calumet Honey Crisp." Let me know if I have the wrong beer.
All malt. No apple to speak of in my growler pour. Light copper color. A drop of honey is in there. The it reminds me of their oktoberfest. Skyview (6093) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 8, 2008
On draught at the sixth annual Crafty Apple Fest in Chilton, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear golden amber brew with a creamy off-whitehead that slowly dissipates to a thin off-white head and some excellent lacing. Aroma of mostly caramel and dark wheat malt, a touch of sweet apples, apricots, a hint of cinnamon and allspice. Taste is smooth caramel malt with some nice apple sweet balance. Finish has a semi-dry texture as the balanced malt and apple aftertaste slowly disappears. The 2008 vintage is slightly darker than previous years. Overall a nicely balanced apple fruit and wheat malt beverage.
