341ml bottle. I usually don’t like fruit beer and I never had a single apple beer I really liked. Except this one. Everything seems delicate in here. Distinct and pleasant notes of green apples submerges all other flavors. It’s not sweet, it’s not spicy, it’s not hoppy, it barely seems alchoolized, but it was much better than I remembered. Some notes of bread and some slightly acidic notes come along in the taste. The aftertaste could have more hop punch but this is a Unibroue beer... Probably my favorite from them among all their low-abv brews.

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.

ILduce (280) - 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.

snoworsummer (5624) - 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.

SG111 (1770) - 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.

Aroma: chemical apple flavour, wheat ; Taste: very sweet, no bitterness, light acidity ; Palate: medium to light body, lively, sweet finish. I could not finish it, I didn’t like it at all

KevinReddirt (152) - Midland, Texas, USA - FEB 5, 2017
Unibroue disappoints rarely. This one is just a notch below the others. Poured into a chalice glass. It is a hazy yellow with a persistent finely-bubbled white top. It smells floral and fruity. The taste is mild, apples and peaches with a nice sweetness. An easy drink. I like more challenge in a brew.

unibroue has changed my thoughts on fruit beer this one has a fine apple taste could drink it all day

Pours an amber from a bottle. Nice apple aroma follows through in the flavor along with some nice yeast and barnyard notes. Good beer.
