A fun drinking beer lots of sweetness. Sour apple aroma with slight sour taste more sweet tasting to me. Little to no hop aroma and taste. Slight cloudness in glass. Might be fun to mix this with a sour lambic to see what you got. Over a refreshing beer that I would try again.

Poured into a pint glass. The color is medium orange with nice melon hues. There is a small off-white head. Not super clear but no haze.

The aroma is straight up apple juice. I don't pick up much of anything else at first, but after drinking for a bit I get some bready yeast in the aroma as well.

The taste is somewhat cidery, but I think it tastes more like regular apple juice. There is some breadiness in the start; the finish is all juice.

This is pretty unique and fun to try. It's not entirely my cup of tea, but I can see this being a popular choice for many people.
