migwell (357) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 1, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2016 Unibrow. Got this off a list of 100 beers to have before you die, and at age 71, I’m in more of a rush than most of you... Smells a lot like apples and yeast. Thin body, pretty dry, not unpleasant. Bottle poured into a Chimay chalice giving a good head that didn’t last and a cloudy hay colour. A bit of bubblegum and white bread, and naturally, the apples and yeast. Frankly, this is a real letdown after the build-up. I don’t like to be overwhelmed by my brews, but here’s the opposite, a yeasty, fruity nonentity with little to say for itself. Ephemeral indeed. Still, for what it is, it goes down easy. Glad I got only one (and done) bottle. I feel like adding something to perk this up! A votre santé.

Pours a light yellow straw color with a massive head that does quickly die down. Smell mainly of green apple, but with hints of wheat and yeast. Taste is like apple juice with a bit of spice in it (probably the coriander), mixed with a wheat beer. Believe they are using the Belgium strain of yeast. Mildly sweet. Crisp finish. Highly carbonated. Not usually the style I grab, but it wasn’t too bad. Probably would like it more in the summer instead of while it is snowing.

Pour on tap at Beer Grotto, clear dark orange pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of apple, bread, biscuit, toast, hints of dark caramel, slight spice, esters, some slight fruity notes. Taste was a mix of caramel, toast, hints of toffee, slight apple notes with some green apple, hints of fruity esters, finishing fairly sweet, slightly bitter.

Metalflake (73) - Les Coteaux, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 13, 2015
Bottle from the Grocery Store. Poured into a Shaker, hazy gold with a thin, bright white head that lasted about halfway down the glass but left some lovely lacing. Aromas of green apple, floral hops and Belgian yeast, flavours of apple, honey and wheat malt. Slight mineral undertone. Light bodied, slightly sweet, not bitter at all, soft carbonation. Ever-so-slight tartness on the finish. Nice, though not what I typically reach for when I open the fridge.

mathieuc (3905) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 12, 2015
Pours a heavily hazed yellow with a small white head that leaves some lacing. Nose is of candy apples, not as fake as Lindemans Pomme for example but not exactly authentic either. Taste is of lightly sweet wheat and apples. Wheat proteins. Body is light and carbonation high. Overall a fair wheat beer, enjoyed it less than the pear variant though.

eduardovl (1418) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 25, 2015
330ml bottle served in a pint glass. A: Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow color forming a small and very fizzy white head that dissipates quickly leaving no lacings. S: Very fruity. Something between a beer and a cider. Strong notes of sweet pale grains and apples. Green apples, flowery hops. Hints of vanilla, white grapes, honey and wheat. T: Slightly sweet upfront. Strong notes of sweet pale malts, vanilla, honey, flowery hops. Slightly sour. Very light bitterness. Metallic hints. M: Light body and carbonation. Very fruity aftertaste. Persistent Apple notes. O: Good drinkability. Something between a cider and a beer. Interesting.

tfontana (932) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 21, 2015
Bottle from Harvest Market, Bedford NH. Aroma is of Belgian yeast and mild tart apple. Appearance is hazy yellow with decent sparkle and 4 finger-width fizzy white head that dissipates fairly quickly and bubbly lacing that recedes. Taste is sharp nonspecific tart beginning, mellowing out in the middle and identifiably apple finish (like granny smith). Palate is light to medium bodied with somewhat sticky/chewy texture, brief lively carbonation at the tip of the tongue. Overall, not a huge fan of tart so not a beer I’d crave again but it didn’t leave me gagging like some do that go way overboard. If you like mildly tart and fruit beers, you could do a lot worse.

Barreras (1687) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JUL 31, 2015
Pours a light yellow color with an apple aroma. Taste is a light apple flavor with an easy dryness to it. A minor sweetness to the beer, that dissipates quickly.
