3.15/5 rDev -12.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Picked up a bottle in my most recent build-your-own-6pack at Wegman's. Best by Dec 2012.
Appearance: Poured a murky golden color with a single-finger fizzy head, more like a soda than a beer. The head disappeared rapidly with little to no lacing.
Smell: The smell was a bit off-putting to me; I know this is a bottle-conditioned beer but it smelled like an old PB&J sandwich; mixed with some green apple.
Taste: The taste was much better than the smell (thankfully); like a yeasty cider, with almost champagne-like carbonation. Malt and hops were barely present, as in most fruit beers.
Mouthfeel: Pretty thin, but I poured the whole bottle, yeast and all, so that added a little body to it.
Overall: Definitely different, not bad, but I wouldn't pick it up again.

3.79/5 rDev +5.3%

A: Pours a hazy medium yellow in color with moderate to heavy amounts of active visible carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass and some golden apricot + brassy highlights. The beer has a half finger tall fizzy foamy off-white head that reduces to a small patch of thin film and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Moderate aromas of crisp slightly sweet green apples over the top of hints of pale malts and just a touch of spicy Belgian yeast.
T: Upfront there is a light flavor of pale malts with moderate flavors of both sweet and tart green apples. Light distinctive flavors of Belgian yeast adding a hint of fruitiness and spices. Minimal amounts of bitterness in the finish which fades very quickly.
M: Light bodied with heavy amounts of carbonation. Slightly crisp.
O: Refreshing and easy to drink - a very nice beer for a hot summer day.
