Draft. Sharp smoke in the beginning, fruit and fruity pebbles flavors, tartness in the finish, slight woodiness. Awesome brew. garthicus (2939) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 11, 2014
Bottle thanks to a trade with Koelschtrinker . Appearance: Dark ruby red, tiny white head. Aroma: Cherry, lots of malt, vanilla and the hickory is nice and subtle, coriander, wheat and lemon too. Flavour: Nice hoppiness at first followed by a little sourness, cherry, lemon, coriander, hickory again with a lovely long bitter cherry finish. Quite nice! swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Bottle via Sebastian . Amber pour, sweet fruity flavor, touch of tartness and light salt. Very drinkable and enjoyable. Not gathering much/wood/hickory. Fruit forward. Enjoyable maneliquor (3514) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 10, 2013
Bottle cheers to Paul. Pours clear amber with a big frothy white head. Nose is divine stewed apples - just like an apple pie. Some mild raisins and a touch citric behind the bready malts. Very apple forward. Taste is reminiscent of sparking apple juice, heavy tangy lemon, toffee, lime and biscuit. Very decent

Bottle acquired via trade. It pours clear deep amber with a thick yellow-white head. The nose is apple tango, earth, wood, candy, salt, cheap white wine and apple Jolly Ranchers. The taste is crisp, salty, green apple skin, pear skin, Appletizer, nice tartness and sherbet with a dry finish. Light-medium body, moderate carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Interesting, fun and tasty. Nice work. Leighton (22027) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2013
Bottle shared at Bruce’s in London - thanks P-Dog. Pours clear, amber-gold with a frothy white head. Smells like ripe berries, fruit juice, ripe apples, gummy candies. Light sweet flavor with more gummy candies, berries, mellow tang. Light bodied with average, spritzy carbonation. Sweet finish with ripening fruits, more gummies, hints of woody dryness. Nice. madmitch76 (25321) - , Essex, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2013

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Thanks to Paul who also identified the Apple Tango nose on this hazy amber beer. Tidy cream coloured head. Palate is softish and light. Little malt with a touch of caramel and then very slightly sour apple. Semi dry finish. Interesting beer, had to double check it wasn’t the Apple wood version!
