4.05/5  rDev +29.8%

A: Opaque golden with a thin white head.

S: Apples, orange, cinnamon and cardamom in the nose.

T: Apple, malt, orange and oddly enough, pie crust.

M: Medium bodied and smoothish.

O: Recommended if you like fruit beers. I certainly do enjoy the addition of fruit. To hell with the Reinheitsgebot. Definitely worth a try.

This is my second beer by these guys. Kind of a cool idea as a follow-up to pumpkin head. Doesn't really work as well though. The apple flavor isn't very strong, which is probably a good thing, if you wanted that you could just go get a hard cider somewhere I suppose. Lighter copper color, apple aroma. Not for me.

A- pours a clear golden-yellow color with a small fizzy white head, good retention after the pour

S- it smells like apple cider with a lot of cinnamon notes added, also picking up some funky sulphur aromas

T- seltzer water mixed with cinnamon powder, there is a touch of baked apple flavor that at least gives it some natural flavor, not picking up any beer flavors though

M- light-medium body with low carbonation, sweet, yet moderately dry finish

O- not a fan of this one. I'm all for fruit beers, but they should at least have some beer elements to them
