3.76/5 rDev -1.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Rich golden color with excellent clarity. There's an inch of tightly knit bright white foam and some light Brussels lacing. I get a lot of spices within the aroma but I think the cilantro and cider stand out the most. The flavor is powerfully spiced and you really get the cilantro which is a bit refreshing and gives it a vegetal edge. The cider gives a light sweetness. The cayenne gives a slight warmth and and the cider offers some dryness in the mouth.

4.43/5 rDev +15.7%
look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Transparent, yellow, honey color. Thick, soapy foam with exceptional retention. Coats the glass in a blanket of lacing with each sip.
Bright and fresh citric aroma. Grass and lemon rind. Soft yeast and cloves.
Apple flavor. Lemon grass. Mild honey sweetness with hints of apricot. Live yeast. Hint of clove spice. Very complex yet well balanced.
Medium bodied. Slick feel. Light on the palate but with hints of yeast, fruit-like texture. Lots of tiny bubbles bring the flavors to life.
Awesome brew. It's nice to try something new and fresh.

3.79/5 rDev -1%

Pours golden with a frothy head. Lacing sticks.
The smell is of apples with yeast , grain and hint of pepper.
The taste is of apples, grainy sweetness (some bubblegum?), a touch of sour yeast. Light cayenne spicing balances the sweetness, though remains sweet in character.
Creamy smooth, the alcohol is very well-hidden.
An interesting beer. The apple is balanced - not powerful, but enough to give it character. Sweet, but the hint of spicing balances it.
Serving type: on-tap
