Had one at a buddy's house while playing poker. Served in an imperial pint glass.
Appearance -- Light, hazy, gold color with a nice, clean white head.
Smell -- Initial smell is pleasant . . . sweet apples. Take another whiff and it begins to smell like Apple Pucker. The smell is the most interesting aspect of this beer, but I wasn't overly impressed due to the artificial Pucker scent.
Taste -- Way too sweet and artificial tasting. From what I've read, the brewery uses fresh Wisconsin apples. That may be, but the taste doesn't feel natural to me at all. Berry Weiss is by far a superior tasting fruit beer. No comparison.
Mouthfeel -- Not bad. Medium feel to it. You can chew on it.
Drinkability -- I'm happy I had the opportunity to try this beer and happy that I didn't have to spend my own money to try it. The appearance and smell are intriguing, but they grow old real quick. Taste is artificial and overly sweet. It's kind of what I expected. I don't plan on having this beer again. If given the chance, I'd have to respectfully decline.

A monstrous thanks to TATURBO for a trade on this one. Ever since I came across this a bit ago I had been wanting to try it. I found this beer to be worth the wait and was very very happy to finally try it last night.
The beer poured as a nice looking light copper color, the head was foamy and white. Not much lacing but the head stuck around a for amount of time. The smell of the beer is like a delicious apple dessert of some kind. Really nice apple and spicy cinnamon on the nose. Doesn't smell like beer at all really and I can see why people won't like that. The taste was epic, full of fresh pressed apple flavors with a elegant amount of spice, really freaking tasty! The mouthfeel was light and had a good carbonation to it. Very drink I thought. Overall this beer has the potential to be the best Leinenkugel brew that I've had. The only thing is that I'll probably never see it again. It's safe to say that if I ever do see it, I'll be buying a good amount of it to hold onto.
