andrewthfcmuir (32) - Kitchener, Ontario, - MAR 10, 2013
Appearance of carbonated apple juice, with the head dissipating quickly. Strong aroma of strong apple juice, almost cider. Taste is very sweet, slightly sour with very light hop bitterness. Very different, it’s not quite cider, but not something you’d expect from a pilsner either . Some people consider craft beer “over hopped” and too strong for their taste, but that’s not the case with this one. Definitely not the greatest beer technically, but it can be enjoyed by anyone.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2017 Lata 50 cl en Cimmeria 29..06.. 2017. (r15). Lote K221611 . 46. Color amarillento pajizo claro transparente con poca espuma blanca. Sabores frescos a refresco de manzana. Ligeros citricos, limas... Todo ello con algo de espuma y carbónico. Todo un refresco de manzana, recuerdos de trinaranjus, con cuerpo ligero fácil de beber. Refrescante poco más.

473ml can @Cimmeria, Oviedo. 29-06-2017.
BBD: not found.
In short: apple must.
Did I enjoy it: if i was ordering a "trina manzana" probably i would, but this was not the case.
In long: apple must. No way this resembles a beer nor cider. Poor.

Can. Clear golden body, big white head. Nasty sweet artificial aroma, and the flag our isn’t much better. This should be crisp and fresh but it’s not.

473ml can. Pale clear pour. Like a less sweet redds apple ale, its pretty uninspired.

pours almost clear light yellow, gold tint, with a small white cap, little retention and lacing. apple-flavored artificial candies - jolly rancher*TM, fragrant pears, some natural notes - sweetened brown unfiltered natural juice; pale honeyed maltiness, lots of cinnamon, allpsice and potpourri bouquet, citric traces provided by lemon juice, not very clean with other awkward esters. average carbonation, light body, semi-sweet, chalky and artificial finish. not horrid but nah.

jksipa (956) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 7, 2015
Can fro the LCBO. Clear pale yellow with a two finger white head that disappears quite quickly leaving some spotty lace. Green apple is prominent in the nose with some light grain. Nice tartness to start which is quickly passed by a cloying sweetness. Medium thin mouth with prickly carbonation. Ok, I’ve tried it; moving on.

Look I knew I wasn’t getting a stellar beer with the reviews, including one of the summer’s lowest rating from my esteemed friend Freaky below (even if it didn’t liken the beer to sweaty balls), but the pickings while visiting the NB brewery were pretty slim... so. After the pour it looks like, well, a fizzy apple juice- clear gold, with white head that fades faster than my parental patience during one of my daughters’ hissy-fits. Smells heavily of sweet apples with a mild malt behind. And the taste is crazy apples with plastic dump truck load of sugar. Oh and some mild malt supporting. This beer may explain the tour group of a dozen women doing a tasting at the NB brewery while I was there. Christ NB, I don’t even give my aforementioned daughters apple juice with added sugar, it sweet enough as-is. This beer is a sugary applet mess.

473ml can from LCBO. Clear pale golden body, small white head with poor retention. Aroma of apple juice and grains, candies. Taste of diluted apple cider, hay, sugar. I had worse.
