Review: Leinenkugel’s Apple Spice Beer

leinie’s apple pie spice dessert

Apple and spice in the beer? You bet. Leinenkugel’s Apple Spice seasonal brew is loaded with apple and cinnamon to the point where it tastes more like a cider than a beer. I found it incredibly sweet and difficult to drink much more than half a bottle, but the ladies seem to be bigger fans than I. If you’re a cider fan, you’ll definitely want to give this beer a try (if you can find it in your neck of the woods); it really is something different.

Leinenkugel’s suggests the beer be served either cold or, get this, hot, like a hot, mulled cider. I didn’t go that far, nor did I experiment with the delicious-looking dessert that Lienie’s created (that’s it in the picture, next to the beer), involving apple pie filling, vanilla ice cream, graham crackers, and half a bottle of Apple Spice beer whipped into a meringue. I’d be happy to try it, though…
