nearbeer (5561) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 12, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2013 12 oz. Clear and pale straw colored with a small head that sizzles away. Aroma is caramelized sorghum, apple and a touch of grass. Taste is apple cider with some cane sugar and a touch of pith and dry grass. Light body is sweet and has light-medium carbonation. Even A-B’s sorghum beer (Redbridge I believe it’s called) puts this one to shame.

Suttree (6484) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 17, 2013
Clear, bright fizzy yellow. loose, soapy white head Almost no aroma. Taste is mildly sour, some sweet notes. I think it’s it’s lack of flavor makes it tolerable. Lots of sour apple notes as it warms.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear, pale gold with mibimal head. Aroma is super weak. A little fruit and bread. Taste is light tart. Like a pinot girgio with champagn yeast. Light bodied with a thin texture. Soft carbonation and a super long finish. Overall, meh. Im glad i can consume gluten.

hfmejias (1283) - Marshall, Minnesota, USA - MAR 8, 2013
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear golden with a tiny white head. Aroma of yeast and citrus fruits. Taste Is kind of white wine like and maybe a bit bready with a tad of bitterness and a dry finish; not that big of a fan. t

rumproasts (5588) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 5, 2013
bottle. there’s nothing positive i can say about this other than I guess it’s drinkable. subpar in just about all aspects.

thedm (6309) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 25, 2012
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated transparent light yellow colored body and no lacing. The aroma was cardboard. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish. The soft flavor contained notes of floral hops and malt. A decent one but not one that I would consider buying again.

Lukaduke (3206) - Gray, Maine, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Pours a pale straw color with a hint of fizz... aromas are sweet, artificial fruity pebbles, apple juice... do I really have to take a sip. Welp it taste just like it smells... fruity pebble cereal with bland cider used instead of milk. Yikes.

Nejhleader (1574) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2012
ugh, something is not right with this brew. Its just bad, really bad. I don’t know why they would release this to the public.

dwyerpg (6378) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 12, 2012
No aroma at all. This is terrible. The flavor is cidery and thin but with a whole bunch of lime. Really impossible to drink. Worse than the raspberry.

Drake (14061) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle from Whole Foods Market Charlottesville. Pours a clear golden color with no head. Grainy, doughy malt aroma with faint hops. The taste is apples, doughy malts and faint sugar. Thin-medium bodied.
