2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle at S & V Liquors Summer Showcase (Fort Wayne) on 6-15-2013. The Appearance is a very small off-white head, transparent body, very little carbonation, and a pale yellow hue. The Aroma is sweet, hints of spice and apples. The Taste mimics the Aroma. The Palate is smooth, dry and this is a medium bodied Fruit beer. Overall, the taste reminded me more of a Cider than that of a Fruit beer. It is pure apple Aroma and Flavor and the end result is that this not a drink I will have again.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. clear bottle. Pours a crystal clear gold with a fizzy white head much like a soda that evaporates instantly and leaves no lace. Pleasant aroma of sweet apples and really not much else. The flavor is again dominated by sweet apple with perhaps a hint of caramel. Light on the palate and refreshing on a warm day. I really have issues with this beer.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours with a clear medium golden hued body with a short lived white head (nearly non existent.) Aromas are cloyingly sweet, lightly minerally, windex, bathroom airfreshener, apple sauce and citric acid. Light caramel malt character, bready, sweet apple sauce and a lot of artificial flavors. Very Very sweet, acid balance, soda esque. Wine cooler quality. Soda like carbonation and body.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
This poured a hazy yellow color with a white head. Aroma was sweet artificial apple, and some applejuice. Flavor was pretty much apple juice, no real beer flavor, but drinkable. Ok

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2013 I ferment several ciders a year, this is an odd one. It’s aroma has a very odd off flavor, almost in Jolly Rancher candy form, which makes me wonder what it really is. It has a hollow flavor with very candy tasting notes, not at all like anything I make which also makes me wonder what is in this. Very bland for an apple cider, but this is an apple ale? It is boiled? I’m not really sure what this is but it’s more in the watered down alcopop of fruit offerings. The bottle says "natural apple flavor" which tells me my nose and tastebuds are correct in something’s just not right in this one. It will be my last.
