My beer-loving husband says this beer smells I do when I get out of the shower. I don't know if that compliments me or the beer, but I'll take them both.
The beer (is this really beer?) pours a golden apple color with quite a bit of fizz.
The smell is intoxicatingly apple and made my mouth water. The taste is much like a hard cider and full of bubbly, crisp apples. The hops were light and malt made a quick appearance at the end of the taste.
The mouthfeel was as crisp as the taste with high carbonation and a tasty zing of apples.
If you're in the mood for apple beer, then I'm sure you'd find this highly drinkable. For me, it's not unpleasant but a beer I'd have to be in the mood for.

750 ml bottle into signature tulip glass, best before 7/17/2015. Pours fairly hazy pale gold color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big apple juice, pear, white grape, orange peel, coriander, wheat, bread, clove, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of apple juice, spice, malt, and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of apple juice, pear, white grape, orange peel, coriander, wheat, bread, clove, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of apple juice, pear, white grape, orange peel, coriander, wheat, bread, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of apple juice, spice, wheat, and yeast ester flavors; with very nice robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice fruit flavored witbier style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of apple juice, malt, spice, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
