Wow. I thought the original was fantastic! This dark beer smells like an apple pie desert. The cinnamon and apple sweet aroma are just so amazing. Taste follows the nose with a larger body then the Bonita Applebaum. I would love to have this again with a holiday dinner.

22 oz bottle shared by a friend, thanks Tyler! Dark brownish black with light tan head. Aromas of caramelized apples, brown sugar, caramel, cinnamon, spice. Tastes of baked/caramelized apples, cinnamon, spice, caramel. Medium body with a semi-dry finish. Interesting. RRistow12 (944) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2017
Tasted from bottle against the BA version. Clear brown with slight reddish tinge. Beige head. Aroma of cinnamon and vanilla. Flavor is where the apple comes through with cinnamon and vanilla. Very well done.

Bottled. Pours dark brown. The aroma is toffee malt. The palate is creamy and full body. The taste is awesome. Cinnamon sugar vanilla extract with a hint of apples. Nice beer. MetalNHopHead (2182) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - JUN 15, 2017
Funky Buddha’s beers are know for unfailing originality. Muy Bonita delivers on that promise even if goes just short of blowing your hair back. Color is dark brown. Vanilla, brown sugar, spices, and fruit on the nose. Flavors of cinnamon, caramelized fruit (mildly tart apple), and vanilla. The flavors weren’t as rich as I like with my sweet tooth, but there’s a lovely cohesive balance to this beer. It drinks pretty smooth with a bit of warmth that hits the back of your tongue. Really nice.

A- Green apple, tart, vanilla.
A- Dark brown color, cloudy liquid, off white head.
T- Green apple, tart, vanilla, subtle spice.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, balanced finish.
O- Okay, I’ve had much better from FB though, especially along the specialty lines. At over a year old, I just don’t think this ages well. Okay, but far from great. alkolord (616) - - APR 19, 2017
Braun trüb, kein Schaum, Apfelkuchen in der Nase, voller süßlicher Körper, Zimt Apfelkuchen im Abgang. Sehr trinkbar weihenweizen (4111) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - APR 13, 2017
Refrigerated brown bomber poured into a glass. Clear dark brown with small off-white head. Aroma is cinnamon, medium body, little carbonation, and little lacing. Tognetta (953) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - APR 9, 2017
No aroma a canela aparece mais que maçã, em segundo plano chocolate e café.
Faltou um pouco de corpo, mas no geral é bem equilibrada. juiceisloose (1543) - Windermere, Florida, USA - APR 3, 2017
22 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown color and topped by a thin off white head of foam that settles quickly to a thin film and leaves sudsy lacing around the glass. The aroma shows notes of cinnamon, cooked apples, vanilla, sugar, and toasted caramel malts. Maybe a touch of pie crust in there. Nice aroma that is similar to an apple pie. The flavor follows with caramel apples, toasted vanilla, cinnamon spice, and toasted caramel malts. Fairly sweet overall but avoids becoming cloying. Medium bodied and smooth with soft carbonation that leads to a caramel apple and vanilla finish. Nice brown ale that reminds you of an apple pie.
