"crisp and tart are the first two words that come to mind. refreshing is the next. Very cider like, and not too heavy on the belgian spiciness, this was a great "light" 8% brew. well done." BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAR 9, 2005
Sampled bottled at Man Land, Portlandgoldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAR 14, 2005
Pale yellow, moderate carbonation. White head, small lacing. Nose of small Belgian yeast & citrusy carbonation. Cider flavors with lots of dryness & alcohol. Lots of farmhouse character with a bite of tart cider. Very nice!
Poured a clear light straw color with a medium white head. Aroma of tart apple with much lighter aromas of malt and yeast. Flavor tastes like apple cider (not hard cider), light malt and a spiced/bitter finish. Tastes like coriander. Light body with well hidden alcohol. Warming sensation.

Pale gold with a huge head then nothing. Lively carbonation. Yeasty and bitter aromas with some spices. Tart apples in the nose as well. Warm biscuit flavors with some spices. Alcohol and apples with dough. Some champagne qualities. Bubbly, crisp and light. Finishes with apples and alcohol.

Rating from old notes. Don’t remember the date, but I had it with Goldtwins, so maybe around March 05. Pale clear gold pour with white head. Big aroma of apples. Flavor was tart apples and corriander. Light body and dry, with a bit of a bitter finish.

Golden with a nice medium head. Aroma is citrusy and fresh apple. Tastes sweet with some apple, although a little thin and noticeable booze. Finishes kind of sweet. Seems to green or else unbalanced. Almost like a thin ephemere apple. trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 1, 2006
I hope this is the right beer, because my bottle had a green label, unlike the one to the left. Anyway, pours cloudy gold with a huge white head. A lot of carbonation. Looks and smells like a tripel, but with apples and some wheat aromas. The taste is the same; sweet with candied sugar and yeast, with a cider bite and hefe-like undertones. Very light, but the apples get more prevalent as the beer warms, to the point of getting a little nauseating. Its worth trying, but I don’t think this will be making a return appearance in my fridge.
