Little Apple Koln Kölsch
Poured pale, yellow with a thin white head. Clean and easy drinking. Malts weren’t too crackery and your face either. Balanced floral hops. A great lawnmower/hot weather beer for sure.

Little Apple Paradise Weisse
Sampled at GABF 2016 with Paul and Larry. Pours a clear golden body with light lacing. The nose is very strange - lots of nuttiness and slightly tart. Not exactly sure where the nutty character is coming from, but the mouthfeel is a slight recovery with notes of tart fruit and soft delicate wheat.

Little Apple Bodacious Blueberry Blonde
Pint on tap at the brewpub. I am not a fan of fruit beer or flavoring like in this beer but this was a refreshing beer on a hot summer day. It is Ice cream flavor beer but I liked this stuff for some reason.

Little Apple Prairie Pale Ale
A middling pale ale. Has some grassy bitterness, but there is a lingering butter problem with this (and most other beers) from this brewery.

Little Apple XX Black Angus Stout
Sickeningly sticky beer. An incredible amount of caramel and butter in what should be a beer dominated by its chocolate or coffee roastiness. I had trouble finishing it.

Little Apple XX Black Angus Stout
Had this beer every time I have visited the brewpub and its never been off, which is something very special for this brewery. Looks great off nitro, adds a thickness to the mouthfeel I don’t get much from their other beer. Plenty of roast a unsweetened cocoa and all very drinkable. If you only get one beer here make it this one.

Little Apple Belgian Blizzard
Parkville Fest 2013. This batch is listed as 8.1%. Cloudy golden pour. The beer has a lot of the wrong aspects of a Belgian ale. Aroma is overly sweet, banana-candy, esters run amok. Flavor subdues the esters a bit and has a mineral finish. A bit of a lighter body for the style.

Little Apple No Bull Barleywine
Parkville Fest 2013. This batch is listed as 9.1%. I had this beer 2 years ago at the same fest and it was pretty good at the time. However, this year’s was baddddddd. Ruby dark brown color. Aroma is boozy and green, too young of a beer. Rotten fruits and alcohol. Then the dreaded diacetyl kicks in. Flavor is sweet raisins, which is nicer and still plenty of booze. A light diacetyl rounds it off.

Pleasant enough. Not as hazy looking as a lot of witbiers. Big white head. Honey banana and spice in the aroma. The flavor is sweet and fruity with just a hint of citrus at the finish. Sweeter than most any witbier you’ll find
