3.8/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 3 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

A: Mine came in a Belgian style bomber, unlike the one displayed. It pours with robust carbonation with what looks similar in color and clarity to what is seen in a Hefe. It's hazy, pale, and yellow with a head that drops off after a minute or so with decent visible carbonation.

S: It has the slight scent of fruit, but more as an ester than actual fruit. It smells like vanilla, cream, and familiar Belgian yeast. After pouring more I get some apple smell out of it and it smells a lot like apples and cream. It smells wonderful.

T: It has a light cream flavor as well. I pick up some light apple flavor, but not a whole lot. It comes out more after I drink it. It's not a very complex beer though, and is pretty thin. The distinct Belgian flavor is there. It's tasty but doesn't pack as much of a punch as I'd like with flavor. Again it has a watery character to it...but it's still good.

M: I'd say the mouthfeel is below average. It's light bodied, but isn't really memorable. I enjoyed the apple aftertaste but it tastes a lot like an apple soda where they added too much carbonated water and not enough syrup.

O: Overall it's a good Belgian style beer, and the apple does add to it. However, it doesn't stand head above shoulders. I would drink it again, but I probably won't be picking it up off the shelf any time soon.

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.
