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.

Me and my wife were impressed with this. Nice wheat-beer appearance, with one fantastic tsting head. Delicious (the apple type) flavor. Not too wheaty in taste, just a pleasant beer. VoodooBear (49) - San Juan, PUERTO RICO - MAR 10, 2013
Presentation: 11.2 oz. brown bottle served in a stemless, oversized wine glass.
Appearance: Thin 1/2 finger head that fizzles out into a thin ring that stays ’till the end, and it leaves some great lacing. It’s a cloudy, bright yellow color.
Smell: It has a simple, very sweet and pleasant smell. A mix of malt with red and green apples.
Taste: The sweet and sour taste is great and something that’s not found in any other brew. The sour of the green apples dominate, but it’s balanced nicely by a red apple and malt sweetness in the background.
Mouthfeel: Creamy and medium bodied with very little carbonation. It’s light and very easy to drink.
Overall: Despite the sweetness on the nose and palate, everything feels nicely balanced, surprisingly. This beer is not cloying at all and doesn’t have that candy flavor that turns away a lot of people from these types of fruit beers. It’s great, very simple and refreshing. Proof that a good beer is not just about having a thousand flavors crammed into a bottle.

Apple aroma, thin white head. Hazy yellow colour. Tender flesh mouthfeel, candied apple taste. Lovely. Wakie (612) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - AUG 14, 2004
Excellent sour apple beer. Not too sweet, not too tart. A delightful melody that danced around my mouth and left when it was uninvited. Better than most apple beers or apple wines. FROTHINGSLOSH (8141) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2007 This was labeled as Floris Apple WIt at Piper’s Pub in Pittsburgh where I had this one on draft. It poured a cloudy pale yellow color with a small white head. There was a strong apple juice aroma. The flavor was sweet strong apple with a hint of banana and spice underlying. The finish was surprisingly dry given how sweet the front was. Pretty darn tasty.
