The yeast flavours are clearly present and similar to Unibroue's blonde/blanche: classic Belgian. Unfortunately, the apple flavour isn't the crisp tartness of a good cider, but more akin to a green apple jolly rancher. There's little aftertaste, so the complexity that the yeast gives to the aroma is the only thing keeping this beer from being totally dominated by the candyish green apple flavour.

At first the flavour is a little off putting but then it starts to grow on you. The flavour of sour apples actually works well with the beer melding into something wonderful.

Smells and tastes of gummy worms. Sweet and tart. Refreshing.

Pours a clear golden with a big creamy white head. Aromas of tart apple and yeasty phenols. Taste begins with a sour apple blast, then some light grain, followed by some yeast, and finishing with a jolly rancher apple flavor. Mouthfeel is average. Overall an ok beer, a little to sweet for my tastes though.
