Very nice. A cross between beer and apple wine spritzer. Looks like sparkling apple wine too, with a pure white head and a light golden/yellow color. Dry and refreshing.

culchiem (4256) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 31, 2017
Bottle at Brussels Xmas market. Gold with a medium head. Aroma of apple peel. Flavour is sweet apple, malt on a thin bitter finish.

LouisP (630) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 31, 2017
Une bière blonde, claire, avec peu de carbonatation, et une bonne effervescence. Au nez, les pommes sont bien en évidence, avec une levure belge qui me rappelle celle d’une saison. En bouche, l’effervescence prend beaucoup de place dans le goût, avec évidemment des pommes omniprésentes. La levure belge assez classique de chez Unibroue arrive ensuite. La bière est facile à boire avec une petite profondeur de goût. Bière de soif.

From Saveur Biere. In Teku glass. Playing Sentience An Android's Tale. Plenty of fresh and natural apple flavors, in both aroma and taste. Pleasant but a bit unidimensional a light bodied though

Johnsense (1802) - - SEP 15, 2017
Pale golden pour, larger head, puffy, good retention. Aroma of green apple candy, yeast, light citrus. Taste reminds me of Blanche de Chamblay but with a handful of green apple hard candies thrown in, lighter citrus notes, fairly sweet. Lighter body. Good replacement for a sweet cider but not something I'd reach for with any regularity.

chrisv10 (18733) - DENMARK - AUG 23, 2017
Bottle, 5.5%. Hazy golden with small off-white head. Aroma is malt, apples, fruit and apple peel. Flavour is malt, apple, fruit, little apple peel, sweet, little thin, little watery and very little bitter.

tightslice (1529) - Redwood City, California, USA - AUG 5, 2017
Bottle from BevMo! in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is stale wheat, apples, some yeasty esters, mild floral. Taste is dew-y meadows with some spiced apple. Better than expected.

OsuStu (287) - - JUL 29, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2017 12 oz bottle. Hazy yellow color with a soapy white head. A very sweet green apple smell with white cracker. Yeast, mellow citrus, juicy apples. Significant visible carbonation. Dry, crisp, and bubbly. Champagne characteristics.

Gift from a volleyball friend, thank you Caroline. I was eager to try this reknown beer, I was surprise how good it was throughout the entire drink. Well done.

beer-yum (1954) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 6, 2017
Definite apple aroma in a straw pour. Definitely different flavour profile - but maybe one that’d appeal to a cider drinker more than it does to this beer lover. Not a fan...

balloonbuffoon (752) - - MAY 14, 2017
25.4floz (750ml) bottle (BBD: 12.09.2017) that I bought for the discounted price of $3. Poured into a large snifter glass. It appears medium-yellow in color, and has a thin, retentive off-white head. Aroma is a great combination of straw from the wheat, and apple from the added fruit. It has been a long time since I’ve had this beer, and it has held up well from what I thought of it then. Lightish in body, low bitterness, fair carbonation, and finishes dry on the palate. Mostly grainy in flavor with gentle overlay of apple make for a good occasional beer. Yet, due to everyday tastes, limited store availability, and cost for what it is relegates this beer to having once a decade or so.
