look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Pours a clear, light golden orange with a nice cream head that dissipates quickly leaving just a ring of bubbles.

Aroma of green apples, apple skins, some buttery popcorn, powdery cheese, candy corn, and sweet pastry dough.

Taste is sweet green apples--very apple juice like. Finish is sweeter and more malty with a fruity apple and light pear presence. Lingering flavor of apple skins with a slight tartness.

Light to medium body and bubbly with medium/high carbonation.

Overall a neat beer, but too many off-putting smells and flavors. Started off surprised at how much apple flavor the beer had, but by the end it was very "eehhh."

Pours a crystal clear golden amber with a white fizzy head. Faint white ring forms as the beer settles. Aroma is straight apple pie filing and caramel apples. Very sweet and fruity beer. Again with the apple pie and caramel dipped apple. Doesn't really remind me of a cider as it lacks the acidic/tart character. Almost no hops at all. Moderate to low carbonation with a silky mouthfeel. Sweet and sticky finish.

Appearance: Rusty nail/copper colored with a weak head that fizzed off quickly.

Smell: Banana, and appleseed aroma. Hefe yeast? I couldn't find anything on the website about it, so who knows...

Taste: Banana nut muffins with a side of apple sauce, a bit too sweet for me, I like my fruit Beers on the tangy side better. It did remind me of a defunct Québec Beer that I used to love, Hopps aux pommes from Brasal.
