From a bottle labelled as Floris Apple purchased at John’s Grocery in Iowa City. The body is deep sunflower yellow with a white head. The aroma is sour Granny Smith apple with some marigolds. The taste is sickly sweet with notes of caramel and Golden Delicious apples. This flavor is very artificial with notes of burnt grass in the finish. This is a fairly bad fruit beer. bhensonb (15761) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 8, 2007
Aroma of apple cider - truly. Hazy, translucent light apple cider color; the white head did not linger on. Starts with a bit of sweetness, followed by apple, followed by sweetness. Ends unexpectedly dry with some apple peel characteristics. There is some tartness at the end. Very pleasant. Palidor19 (3193) - Brandon, Florida, USA - MAR 7, 2007
This is more like a sparkling cider than a fruit beer, however I prefer this one of real hard ciders. taste of green apple with caramel coating. reminds me of autumn, give it a shot smartlung (159) - Valrico, Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2007
Bottle from World of Beer in Clearwater - not sure if this even deserves a 2.5 but really tastes like a green apple - is their alcohol in this? It was refreshing after powerwashing the deck though. GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - FEB 27, 2007
Wow. This was just incredibly tasty. It’s not for everyone, but the truth is this is a refreshing, change of pace, very well made fruit beer. A nice blend of Red Delicious and Granny Smith apples in the nose, along with a bit of orange peel and coriander and some sugary sweetness. Mouthfeel was thick, velvety smooth without amazingly being cloying. Flavor was bright, clean apples with a light wheat cracker backbone. The main thing about this beer is clearly the apple. In fact, along with NG Raspberry Tart/Belgian Red, this might just be my next favorite fruit beer. Amazingly refreshing and tasty. If you don’t like sweet beers, stay far far away.

Labeled in english as Floris Apple. Hazy whitish yellow color, thin but lasting head. I’ve not had a beer that smelled more like green apple candy than this one. There also seems to be a touch of wheat, dough, or pie crust. Woof - very sweet and candyish up front, definitely cloying. Apple is less like the aroma, surprisingly more natural, like a red delicious, it seems to me. But despite that positive, this just seems so sugary, it makes me shudder. Feels undercarbonated, which doesn’t help. Finish is wet, sweet and paradoxically almost bland. This is not good, even if I lowered my standards per the style.

Bottle, Dovetail, Clerkenwell, London. Pours a golden cloudy colour, thin white head. Can smell this thing a mile off! Sharp apple and wheat nose. Mouth is really sweet, really really sweet, wheat and apple. Palate is sweet, syrupy. Just so so sweet. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 10, 2007
12oz bottle & on tap @ Coles. Way too sweet. The woman all seem to like it but not for me. Fin (10917) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2007
Diff’ Label from the one I had that was just called Floris Apple. Bottle, Christmas present bought in a selection of different beers. Looks like some type of fanta, drink not too disimilar to the already drunk Cactus, this was every bit as bad, shockingly sweet, alcopop stle drink.

Bottle Pours a cloudy dingy light beige witha small white head that settled down to form a ring, leaving nice sheeting lacing on each sip. Aroma is apple sure, but a musty, woody bit of funkiness along with a few "spices" cinnimon maybe... Flavor is very sweet and the apples are nearly eclipsed by the sugary sweetness. Some lemon, and is also here. Would have liked more tartness...a bit dissapointed. As close to Champagne as I will get tonight though.
