On tap @ Bambino’s, served in a footed pilsner glass. Pours pale orangish amber with thick fluffy head. Aroma is sweet and yeasty, with notes of banana, fresh cut grass, and a hint of sliced apple. Taste is pale caramel malt, thinnish body, sharp yeasty notes, and a dry, clean finish. I honestly have a hard time picking up the cider. Or farro at that. Kind if a pleasantly twisted wit, if you like that kind of thing. Pretty standard fare for Dogfish, which isn’t a bad thing. pineypower (3346) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Bottle from Wilco Sicklerville. Pours out a lightly cloudy golden color with a big off white head. Aroma is of apples, grass, spice, light herbal notes. Taste is complex, sweet/tart apple, citrus zest, spices, clove. Light earthy grass, spices, yeast, slight drying alcohol creeping in there on the finish.

Poured a hazy golden hue with creamy white head. Smelled of coriander and lemon. Tasted sweet with notes of ginger. Very good, but a bit too rich to enjoy as a summer quaff. I just read the description and I can’t believe they didn’t use the spices mentioned. fattybladdy (830) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Bomber, pours a light golden with large white head. Scent of fresh apples. Taste is apple, Belgian yeast, wheat. Goes down light and crisp, hard to believe it’s 9%. blipp (9783) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Fruity juicy, like peach or apricot, light spices, and light belgian yeast. Good, not great.

Apple cider, cayenne, cilantro...not usually things that I'm looking for in a beer but I try everything Dogfish puts out. White head, golden color and unique flavor. I probably wouldn't drink it again unless sharing but I enjoyed it more than I thought I would.

From a 75 cl bottle shared at home. Pours a hazy gold with a white head. Aroma of orange and cardamon. Flavors of soft citrus and mild apple. Smooth with low carbonation. Short, crisp finish. maxwelldeux (4433) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - APR 29, 2013
Bottle. This one is odd. Nose didn’t have the fruit elements I expected. Instead it was very spicy and filled with herbs. Taste does have some of the fruit elements in there that didn’t come through in the nose. The cayenne comes through and adds just a touch of heat to it. Very weird. Glad I had it, wouldn’t try it again, I don’t think. NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 28, 2013
Amber pour with a white head. Not as much herbal/spice character on the nose as I was expecting or on the palate. Taste is a fusion of beer and cider with some herbal notes in the finish. The concept behind this beer and this beer in general is very interesting. I enjoyed it, would’ve been ok with a bit more spice/herbal character but as is it is a decent brew that I’d say is worth a try.
