Bottle poured into a chalice

Pours a hazy golden yellow with nice carbonation . Dense white two finger cap settles to a sudsy white layer of bubbles.

Aroma of apples and cider.

Taste of apples in a yeasty beer.

Suds up but quickly settles down. Hint of apple aftertaste

Interesting and glad I tried it.

Probably my favorite artificially flavored beer product. The yeast enhances the apple in a buttery pie crust kind of way. Very awesome.

Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Firestone pint glass
From: Albertson’s in Alpine, Calif.
Price: $1.67 ($9.99 for a mix 6-pack)
Purchased: Sept. 30, 2014
Consumed: Sept. 30, 2014
Misc.: Bottled on July 14, 2013 at 11:21 a.m. in Quebec (that’s if I deciphered the codes on the bottle right); Gold foil on cap/neck

Poured a golden, pale, clear color with 5-to-6 fingers of rocky white head. Tons of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Minimal lacing along the sides of the glass. Good-to-above average retention on the top of the glass all the way down. (Sight - 3.88)

Smelled apple juice from pretty far way. Also caramel, green apple, caramel apple, light cider, kiwi, green grapes, foamy corn and bubblegum. (Smell - 3.75)

Tasted pretty close to the nose, but not quite as good. Got green apple, apple juice, caramel apple, toffee, caramel apple, green grapes, kiwi, cold cider, sweet sugary Belgian notes, bubblegum and light Sweet Tarts. (Taste - 3.38)

Light body. Oily-to-thin texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt, fruity finish. Refreshing though. (Feel - 3.38)

I had high hopes for this one because everything I’ve had of Unibroue has been excellent, but this didn’t quite do it for me. Decent for summer though. (Overall - 3.50)
