2006 Edition: Bright sparkly golden in body with white bubbly head that stays. Smells of tart cider, apple pie but without the crust, little citrus. Tastes cider-like: apple pie mush, tart, sour notes, light cinnamon pear. Light in body with prickly carbonation.

Serving type: bottle

Dark, cloudy, unfiltered appearance. Orange-brown in color. Wonderful sweet smell. Delicious full citrus, spicy flavor. Minimal carbonation, fairly flat. Full bodied feel in the month; fairly heavy. Great flavor. Delicious. I had two glasses when at a restaurant tonight and want more!

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: The beer is very hazy golden yellow in color. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down, leaving a patch of bubbles in the center and a thin collar around the edge of the glass
S: Moderate aromas of woody herbs and ginger are present in the nose.
T: The taste mostly follows the smell and also has some added notes of spices and orange peels towards the finish.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has an interesting mix of herbs and spices, but these aren't overpowering. It is a nice one to sip and savor.
