Pretty darn nice. Even better that we are both drinking it and don’t feel gluten-y. Pours a nice hazy yellow with no head. Sort of tastes like exactly what it is, fermented apples, but tastes better than it sounds. Sweet, tart, crisp, warm and a mellow/ earthy note from the addtion of maple. Definitely prefer Belgian yeast in this application to most belgian style beers. Better than I thought- very drinkable and thoroughly enjoyable.

Pours a hazed golden with a white head. Dry apple aroma. Starts dry then quickly becomes musty apple sweet and finishes dry. Would be better if it was dry all the way through. Notes: bottle in Lake Tahoe, June ’17

Visual: Pours slightly hazy yellow with large bubbles clinging to the side of the glass, no head, the same bubbles sporadically surfacing.

Nose: tangy apple juice. (lvl-5)-pungency

Attack: crisp-dense juicy, slightly tart

Mid-palate: (lvl-5-sweetness), sour-tangy acidity, bright apple juice, rounded body, yeasty mild palate rough, subtle non-descript spices

Finish: maple syrup undertones, apple juice exhale

Summary: An inviting big fruity apple flavour with a good amount of tangy-sour acidity and a hint of spice and maple syrup to round it out. Not exceptionally complex but enjoyable nonetheless. Solid.

22 oz bottle. Pours a clear golden amber color much like apple cider with no head. The aroma and flavor have sweet apples, maple syrup, brown sugar, apple skins, a mild Belgian yeast character, good for what it is, but it’s not a style I like.

Intricate08 (51) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 8, 2016
Aroma is apples and a floral scent, good blend. Light pour, almost watery. Minimal head, light on the tongue. Very crisp going down with a sweet taste that doesn’t overpower the entire complexity.

I think I may have an old bottle as the aroma is kind of funky and not in a good way. Apples, yes; unwashed body parts, no. Palate is good tho. Flavor’s somewhat similar to nose, no sign of maple or spices. I wouldn’t want another one of these although I could see, perhaps how someone might - maybe?

Pour is a hazy brownish gold, unfiltered look to it. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Smell is honey, apple, sweetness. Taste follows, but also has a vague vinegar and weird funkiness to it. I didn’t really like it at first, and it didn’t really grown on me either.

3.4
PorterPounder (7970) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2015
Atlanta, GA - Whole Foods - Briarcliff - 22 oz bomber. Hazy, light golden pour, no real head. Fresh, juicy, just cut apples kind of aroma. Flavor is full bodied and delicious apple flavor with some natural tasting Gala apple notes, a hint of sourness, some natural vanilla notes, not artificial at all. Decently thick mouthfeel. Pretty solid.
