2.73/5  rDev -12.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

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

A great spring ale. Often mistaken for cider, this beer is lightly flavorful, delightfully crisp and tart just like the spring air. The appearance is clear and bright, however the ale leaves very little lacing around the glass. Not for the IPA crowd but a great tasty beer, especially for cider lovers.
