3.63/5  rDev +1.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle into a New Belgium snifter. Pour is hazy yellow orange with a nice white, fine head. Good lacing. Nose has strong notes of sour and sweet apples and more than a little bit of barnyard funk. There's also a faint floral component that combines with the apple to produce something like lemon.

The beer has a light body and a lively feel from the carbonation, but still drinks a bit thin. The flavor is very delicate and is somewhat washed out by all the bubbles. Nevertheless, what you do experience is a sweet apple flavor on the front of the palate which develops to a faint, tart, white grape kind of flavor in the back of the mouth. The flavor beyond the front of the palate is unfortunately a bit dead. The finish is slightly dry, but also kind of bland. As the beer warms and the carbonation dies down, the sweetness recedes a bit and this nice musty flavor starts to come forward.

After nosing this beer, the taste was a bit of a disappointment. I was hoping for some sweet and sour fruit notes to be battling for supremacy on my palate. Unfortunately, what I got was a light-bodied, apple-tasting beverage that, while refreshing and pleasing to drink, did not excite my palate or challenge me the way I had hoped.
