Terrible. Wheat, cinnamon, apple. Not what I am looking for when I want a beer. The cinnamon comes on strong at the end.

Draft. Pours murky orange with thin white head that lingers. Medium carbonation over sweet wheat aroma. Sweet apple like flavor with wheat beer tones. I don't like wheat beer and this is no exception. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle @ home via Dr. Shithead courtesy wave. Would pete. Pours a very hazy dull dark orange appearance with a cream colored head. Really heavy cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, holiday spice, apple/pear aroma. Mostly just tastes like a goddamn 7-11 apple fritter. Lightly tart. Not super hard to chug but not particularly delicious either. Not a wave.

A: Clear Golden Straw/Amber Hue, Passes All Light, Very Mild White Head Ring, No Lacing S: Cinnamon, Crisp Green Apples T: Green Apples, Mild Cinnamon M: Poorly Carbonated, Light Bodied, Crisp, Clean Overall, this beer is as advertised which is an apple beer. It definitely has the taste of a beer as opposed to being a cider. Its good but nothing impressive, as advertised. The cinnamon wasnt overpowering thankfully and very drinkable.

The measure against which every apple beer should be measured is Ephemere and this one just doesn’t stack up. Overly sweet, sticky, lacking the dry tartness that reminds you of beer rather than cider.

Cybercat (5962) - Georgia, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Pours a clear solar yellow with a thick but effervescent off-white head - looks more like a cider than a beer. Aroma reinforces the cider perception, having a strong apple note and some cinnamon as well, just a hint of malt. Smells like a fresh apple pie. Flavor, though, is a little more beer-like; now the wheaty malt comes through, though the main flavor is still apple, and a cinnamon tone accompanies them. Texture is smooth and firm but lacks fizz. Still, go ahead and pick one to enjoy on a nice crisp fall day.

(bottle - 12 oz) Slightly cloudy gold pour with a thin white head. Very light on the apple aroma but has a nice touch of cinnamon. Flavor starts off with a nice and smooth cinnamon flavor and very light apples that really come through at the end. Crisp clean finish.

Pyrmir (6163) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - AUG 27, 2013
Bottle, rated from backlog. Golden with white head. Aroma and taste are strong; apples, cinnamon, sugar and malt.

lamas (1648) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Bottle. Best enjoyed before: 09/13. A hazy amber pour with a skim of a beige head. Apple pie filling / caramel apples / apple cider aroma - delicious! Goes down very thin and crisp. Caramel and apples upfront taste-wise. Cinnamon follows. A grainy finish. Pretty straightforward and one-dimensional. A very enjoyable fruit beer.

djd07 (15287) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 11, 2013
On tap at Millers Alehouse. Pours a clear gold with small white head. The aroma is spice and apple. Thin mouthfeel with a light watery cinnamon and spice. Not much going on with this one.
