Saw this at the supermarket and decided to get a six pack even though I'd never heard of them...but I like apple beers so I decided to take a chance.
A-Pours a cloudy apple cider color almost like an apple wheat with minimal head and huge chunks floating around.
S-Faint smell that's similar to when you open up a bottle of Testors paint...mild chemical/off smell. Vague... very vague apple smell with a hint of spices. So faint I might be imagining it. I'm not imagining the paint smell though unfortunately.
T-Tastes like a 3 parts water & 1 part apple-beer. Faint tastes of sweet apple and hints of cinnamon but it's so overwhelmingly watery that there's just not much there.
M-Just ok. Crisp with a dry finish.
Overall- Will not be buying this again and will be very hesitant to try more of their beers. First bottle of the six pack is a chore to get through and as much as I hate to throw away money, will probably be drain-pouring the rest. Not a very good first impression.

A-Pours a pale golden straw color with decent white head. Slightly cloudy due to the bottle carbonation. The head fades quickly and leaves no lacing.
S-Light aroma but it's there and the smell is of spices and cider, very crisp.
T-Slightly watered down. Flavors of apple pie spice and a faint hint of apple cider.
M-Very light with decent carbonation. Slightly sweet and slightly watered down.
Overall, apples are a light flavor and very difficult to use in brewing and have the flavor actually show up. After reading the description for this beer "fall harvest ale brewed with apples and spices" i expected at least more applie pie spice type flavors but the flavors in general are very light and the beer tastes watered down. I've had others from this brewery and they are very good ance extremely creative. I encourage people to try their beers.
