Kodos' rating

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
Kodos (205) - USA - APR 12, 2009
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow. Green apple and malt sweet in the nose. Wheaty with a hint of apple, the coriander slips in but just barely. Finishes with a tart apple bitterness that was a little off putting at first. It almost seems like the apple juice and the beer were 2 separate tastes. Interesting

Johnsense (1734) - - 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 (18211) - 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.

3.8
tightslice (1397) - 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.

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.

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...

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.

3.5
ILduce (285) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 11, 2017
UPDATED: APR 11, 2017 LCBO bottle: slightly hazy orange and gold beer with a white head that disappears along with its lace. Lively carbonation. Aromas of grain, citrus, apple and hops. Taste is delightful as far as fruit beer goes. Bright flavours of sour apple, wheat and funk. Light and crisp finish. Delicious.

3.7
snoworsummer (5959) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 4, 2017
UPDATED: APR 4, 2017 Draft at Epcot. Pours hazy gold with a fizzy white head. Tastes like wheat, banana, light clove, some bubblegum, and some orange. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like wheat, banana, light clove, some bubblegum, and some orange.

2.8
SG111 (1968) - New York, USA - MAR 6, 2017
Bottled. Best by 07/28/17. Pours clear honey color, white head. Aroma is lots of apple, sweet granny smith apples, mild Belgian undertones. Flavor is wheat, clove, plenty of apple, light Belgian spices and esters. It’s fine. Very carbonated. Too much.
